Tom returns from the land of Harry Potter, firefighters, and Quake (it's more likely than you think) and your pals run through all kinds of stuff. Cold War XCOMmunism, cheerful dystopian societies, variations on painted ledges, and rhythmic lightsaber drummin'...in VR! Wow! Fun stuff.
Certified Space Viking Matt Crafton stops in at the Addicted To Loot spaceport this week to hurl the flaming hammer of praise on the sci-fi fantasy of Destiny 2, chart the unknowable mysteries of No Man's Sky, and try his hand at Another One Of Tom's Ridiculously Obtuse Games.
Also this week: Digital-to-tabletop games, tabletop-to-digital games, spire slayin', coffee talkin', and maybe monsters?
You can find Matt's artwork at http://www.facebook.com/spacevikingproductions. (He does live streams! They're great! I'm not just saying that because he uses my music sometimes! -Tom)
This week, we bring rad ladyperson Alicia Comings on board to talk of videogames for MANY HOURS. (Seriously, it's a miracle that this episode happened at all. Forgive a rocky start as we get our bearings, after finding that this was our THIRD take of the episode. Computers, amirite?)
Once things kick off, though, it's a banger of a podcast. Overwatch mouthfeels, Some Guys' Sky, purest yarnbois, Animals We Have Crossed, and heaps of non-spoilery praise for Prey (except the parts that are spoilery).
Monster games! Monster hunting, monster fleeing, and monster dating. Something for everyone!
Also: Telltale stuff, Division stuff, Shenmue stuff, and non-copyright-infringing Star Wars stuff.
Addicted to Loot Podcast Ep086: Dead by Daylight, Overwatch, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit
too hot to write a summary
we talked about games this week
they are good ok thank you
Nurse that E3 hangover with an otherwise fairly average episode of Addicted to Loot.
Not much news 'sides the emptying of your wallets with Steam and Itch sales, but we've been playing some games and we've got some opinions on them! Also: fast n' floppy shooting.
BUCKLE UP because your buddies are back with a FULL RECAP of E3. We've got you covered on nearly every prospective PC release, from Anthem to Yakuza.
yes i am determined to make that e3 pun work (-tom)
Wow! Stuff! And lots of it! The announcement-ish of Fallout 76, major changes on the way for Destiny 2 and Overwatch, some rad new game announcements, non-copyright-infringing Pokemon MMO, a probably-very-copyright-infringing art gallery MMO, pretty games, slow games, fast games, and Weird Shareware Games.
Plus, E3 predictions, Tom's thoughts on Dauntless, the introduction of our new YAWT segment, and the chance to hear Tom's mind changed in real time on Diablo.
Hey! This is a really fun episode, we enjoyed making this one. Hope you'll all dig it too.
News! Finally! Battlefield! Sims! Dauntless! Fallout? All sorts of stuff, really. Also: Battletech Brian and Tyranny Tom.
This week: The state of State of Decay 2, the shutdown of Boss Key Productions, Rage 2 (who knew!), No Man's Sky, Battletech, Okami, Dead in Vinland, and...mobile games?
And to make sure you know we're back for reals, we definitely talk about Destiny and Overwatch. Again. A lot. Just like old times. Just like always.
