Here on Staring at Screens we look at the bright, pretty lights that make up our video games. Also, we like to talk about them from a critical, mature and often giggly perspective.
3.5. Welcome to VHS23/10/2012 Duración: 06min
Technical problems won't stop the team from giving you an SAS Episode, even though it's not really truly an SAS Episode! Welcome to our first ever Super Special Bloopers Bonus! (SSBB) (See what we did there?) As Dave struggles to host an episode while working in a dingy French hotel, the team finds itsself a first ever emergency bloopers bonus special. It's 6 mins 30 seconds of pure concentrated awkwardness as you hear the team screw up and laugh at each other mercilessly! We'll be back with the full episode next week. We promise.
3. All Singled Out15/10/2012 Duración: 58min
This week, Eric, Joel and Dave indulge in more nerdy self-loathing as both Victoria and Lisa are away. Also, they talk about XCOM:Enemy Unknown, God of War Saga, and (about time) Borderlands 2. After the break, the guys discuss the resurgence of single player games in the industry, fueled by kickstarter and the independent scene. They also respond somewhat to Blizzard's Chief Creative Officer Rob Pardo's statement that single player games are an endangered species. Also cue memories of old multiplayer game experiences. Not to be missed: see if you can pick out more singing by Joel, Eric talks about self-consciously playing God of War in his living room, and Dave's XCOM squaddies are named 'Adrian Pang' and 'Beyonce Knowles' Send questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org! If we have enough coffee, we might read it out.
