[Recorded at PAX Prime 2015] Host: Ash -- People ask all the time: how did you get that job in games? Well, for this group, the answers are convoluted and, often, completely nuts. From meeting a friend through our mom's…
Ash and Matt head to PAX East to play some games and hang out with some very special guests! – They also take a look at Blizzard’s Overwatch, We Happy Few, Mayan Death Robots, Masquerada, Necopolis, Ghost Song, Curses and Chaos, Death’s Gamble, Westerado, and more!
[HOSTS: Ash, Scott, and Matt] We discuss our love hate relationship with X-Men: Days of Future Past in a spoilerful discussion (34:15 – 1:08:45). Also Matt and Ash check out Wolfenstein: The New Order, and Scott finally finishes South Park: The Stick of Truth. Also news from Awesomenauts, Squids, The Bridge, and Harmonix.

The gang talks about Harmonix’s announcement of Chroma, the winding down of Irrational Games, and the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer. We take one last look at the Titanfall beta, and take a peek into the Art of Titanfall. In our NAQOTW, you tell us about the fake Olympic sports you’d like to see from games and film. Deep Fried!

This week, we welcome Jessa Brezinski from Harmonix to talk about Dance Central’s summer fitness challenges, community management, life on the convention road, and nerdy hobbies. Be sure to keep an eye on @JessaBrez, @Dance_Central, and @FantasiaGame for the latest. I am loving it.

An awesome tabletop game that pits gods from different mythologies against one another. Our experience at PAX, and how you can help kick-start this awesome project!
What day is it? I’m not even sure right now. My brain and body are officially fried in a wonderful way that only information overload could accomplish. I’ve seen a lot of talks, met a lot of people, and even gotten a look at a game or two. I’ll have to do a full write up later but for now I’m going to offer you, in no particular order, the talks I attended that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Yesterday I attended the second full day session of the Game Design Workshop. My brain is currently overfull in a wonderful way. While many of my fellow attendees are nursing their very real hangovers, I’m holding down an intellectual one.
So It’s GDC week and for the first time ever, I’m out here – and it’s amazing! Seriously, I’m as excited as a little kid going to summer camp! (well, a confident little kid, not the kind who dreads leaving their parents and is overcome with a paralyzing fear at the sight of strangers).
