Rob celebrated a landmark birthday by taking off from work and playing A LOT of games (and then going off to a fancy dinner). We talk about GOT: Ep. 1, Hotline Miami 2, Valiant Hearts, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, Helldivers, Infamous: First Light, and early impressions of Final Fantasy Type-0. We also dive into the Uncharted 4 delay, Steam’s streaming box, Remember Me 2, the making of GTA, Final Fantasy XV’s product placement, Nintendo for smartphones, and Anna and Rob’s Playstation Vue impressions. Then Katie freaks out about the Kojima/Konami drama.
We took an inadvertent break and came back with so much to talk about that we had to break the ‘cast into two! Part 1 covers Katie’s experience at Indiecade East, Rob’s experience at Distant Worlds, Helldivers, Life is Strange (and its absurd use of “hella”), Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Grim Fandango, that Destiny jerk who made an 11-year old cry, and Anna & Rob’s mostly positive experience with The Order: 1886.
