Welcome to another episode with slightly-shallower Deep Thoughts. This week we talk about games we hated before we loved, or loved before we hated, or hated to love, or loved to hate. Something like that. We’re just throwin’ spaghetti at the wall at this point.

 

Plus, we give some gaming advice on a game we’ve never played. Or heard of. Or even know the title of. But it all works out!

 

Ever Oasis

Fortnite

Splat2n



DEEP THOUGHTS

 

Games we love then hate, or hate then love, or love to hate, or hate to love

Paper Mario Color Splash

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Splatoon

Spla2n

 

What do you think? Do you ever play a game until you hate it? Has it ever worked out? What game do you think Jake was asking about?

Welcome back, listeners! We’re playing with format ideas here at the AMPCast. This week we think Deep Thoughts about gaming, autism and social interaction. We were so into it we forgot to make a Hitchhiker’s Guide joke, so you know it’s an interesting discussion.

 

Points of Interest: 

Social Interaction Trainer

Neurotribes by Steve Silberman

Professor Layton

Animal Crossing

Hi Everyone!

 

First off, I'm sorry I didn't post this earlier. We're working on some format changes on the AMPCast, and we're putting the show on hold until we decide exactly what we want to do and how we want to do it. 

 

We'll be back, but I can't say when just yet. Stay tuned to this space, and we'll let you know!

Jul 3, 2017

Hey everybody (cough cough)

 

We're (cough) all sick here in the (cough) AMPcast house, so (cough) rather than (cough) subjecting you to the mellifluous tones of our (cough) coughing, sneezing and sniffling, we decided to (cough) take the week off.

 

Go out and enjoy that nice, summer weather for us while we're (cough) inside convalescing! We'll be back next week (cough achoo!)

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

 

This week we celebrate International TableTop Day by playing a terrible board game. Fortunately, it’s one of those newfangled “consumable” board games, so we don’t have to play it again. How’s that for finding the silver lining?

We also get two new Switch games, and we’re absolutely sure we love at least half of them.
