Week in Geek: Andrew plays to complete the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy with its final Russian installment while Dan plays Campo Santo’s new release, Firewatch.
Same Song, Different Tune: Dan and Andrew discuss how the cultural meaning of music can change drastically when used in different contexts. How many people think about demon-slaying when they hear “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas? How many people think of stylized violence when they hear Dick Dale’s “Miserlou”? (How many people think about A Podcast [ , ] For All Intents and Purposes when they hear “Stayin’ In Black” by Wax Audio––or either ACDC’s “Back in Black” or the BeeGee’s “Stayin’ Alive”, for that matter?)
Cheap Games, Part 2 – The Returns: Andrew and Dan return tangentially to the discussion of cheap ass games with an investigation of how many players think of a game’s value in terms of length of play.
