Episode 29: Rocktober

Jared and Shawn take a step back from the “ledge of seriousity” and goof around a bit this week, talking about some of the difficulties in getting people together to play games. Oh, and there are Tangents too…

Tangents:

  • Dead Cells – Jared played it finally because it came to Switch
  • Spider-Man (PS4)
  • Mega Man 11 – True to form for better or worse.
  • Netflix Marvel Cancellations
    • Luke Cage & Iron Fist
  • Ric Grayson…… umm.. Sure (Blame KGBeast)
  • Rocket League cross-platform in 2019…
  • RPG eSports Party v Party competitive role-playing is a thing I guess.. https://rpgsports.tv/
  • Dark Souls Remuxified Switch now with Plastic Toys! Praise!

Main Topic: HOW TO GET PEOPLE TOGETHER IN 2018

  • Why is it so difficult to get people to game with Jared?
  • Why is it so difficult to get people to try something new Jared likes?
  • Why buy multiplayer games if all your friends are “too busy” to play games with you anyway??? Geesh!!
  • No one can hang out for 8-10 hours playing board or tabletop games… other priorities like kids and family, band practice, being general flakes or whatever seem to take priority

  • Kyle
  • Boat
    • Captain Marvel trailer!
    • Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in yet another new Star Trek series.
    • Cross-platform play across the board is finally a reality, with Sony being the reluctant holdout. What’s the impact of this going forward?
    • Lastly, and something I’ve brought up before: The future of server-based games. Will anyone be able to play Overwatch in 20 years?
  • Shawn (@shawnobi)
    • A good argument for why cable is a worse option than several streaming services. With cable you are locked into that service. With either contract, equipment, or both. With streaming services, I can watch what I want then cancel at any time. No contract to mess with or box/satellite to return.I get HBO now for game of thrones, then unsub. I get SlingTV for basketball season, then unsub. There is not enough time for video games and all these shows, at the same time. So I don’t have to have every service all the time. It does require me remembering to cancel and all. But still better for me than cable. Also cable boxes all have bad UI.

I work hard, play hard, and browse Wikipedia the hardest. I'm always reading about games. I have a modest collection and strive to promote that videogames are for every single person.
