Welcome to the Asynchronous Multiplayer Podcast! Pontifications from a family who games together… separately.

 

This week we talk about gritty reboots and unusual heroes. Also, we figure out how to talk about games that are fun but not appropriate for talking about on a family friendly podcast.

 

Then we go shovel, because it’s winter in the northeastern United States and that’s what you do in winter if you live in the northeastern United States.

Welcome to the Asynchronous Multiplayer Podcast! Pontifications from a family who games together… separately.

 

This week we learn lots of things. We learn some Japanese. We learn what a parallel port looks like. We learn some new tricks to get farther in Devil Daggers. We learn that Nintendo games with paint themes are terrible, while Nintendo games with yarn themes are awesome.

 

Plus, Jake schools us on the nature of Yoshi. He’s a dinosaur. So much learning!

Thanks to The Magic Hour Show for having us on as guests last week. It was a lot of fun, and you can go hear us having a lot of fun over at http://www.gamerparent.net/the-magic-hour-show/

 

This week we talk about coming to terms with our own insecurities, clearing the cobwebs off the old game pile, and things that keep us coming back for more.

 

We also get a visit from Jake, future game designer, who shares his elevator pitch for the game that could make him the next Suda51/Swery/Hideo Kojima.

 

We expect great things, or at least delightfully weird ones!
