Kotaku's Nathan Grayson, Ashley Parrish, and Michael Fahey dive into gaming one very specific topic at a time.
Most Video Game Presidents Suck, Too
Yes, it's true. We're talking about presidents this week on Splitscreen. (How topical!) First, Fahey stumps Ash and Nathan on a presidential quiz (that spans both video game and real-life presidents). Spoiler alert: we know nothing about presidents. Then, we talk about the best and worst video game presidents. And finally, we wrap with a discussion on video game governance.
Spoiler Alert: This Is An Episode About Twists And Spoilers
This week we dive into the weird world of video game twists, and spoiler alert: there WILL be spoilers. First Ash leads us in a discussion on the controversy of spoilers in the gaming world. Then, Nathan takes us through a speed run on the history of the MGS2 twist. And finally, Fahey quizzes us on the most memorable video game twists via bullet points.
No Waluigi In Smash *Ever* And Other 2021 Predictions
Happy New Year! This week on Splitscreen we're sharing our 2021 gaming resolutions, discussing our most anticipated (or hoped-for) games of the year, and our gaming predictions.
Reboots, Remakes, and Remasters! Oh my! (RECAST)
For our first episode of the new and rebooted Splitscreen we’re discussing...wait for it...reboots! Join us as we chat about the difference between a reboot and a remaster, argue about which of our favorite reboots is the best, and Nathan holds us all hostage as he obsesses over the 2012 remake of the Atari hit SpyHunter.
In the Land of the Ice and Snow
Happy Holidays, Splitscreeners! This week, to be somewhat on theme with the time of year, we're talking all things ice levels. First Fahey kicks us off by talking about the (supposed) very first ice level to show up in a video game, then we discuss our very favorite and our most-hated ice levels in video games. Finally, we wrap up with an interview with Derek Yu, creator of Spelunky, to talk to him about what gives with the ice levels!
Video Game Award Shows Are A Mess
This week we're talking about the disaster that is video game award shows. To kick things off, Nathan runs us through the brief (and odd) history of video game award shows. Then, despite ourselves, we present the very first Splitscreen Awards. And finally, we finish with a crosstalk segment in which we continue to dive into why video game awards are meaningless.
