My Humble Opinions

Don’t what cosmos had to align to get these 4 together, actually it was just DICE, but nonetheless I’m sure glad they did. Each one brings a unique perspective to a leading entertainment industry. The BTS (behind the scenes, though I’d love to see them do a Korean karaoke night) stories are awesome and are all enough of a peek behind the curtain to keep you coming back for the next week. That said, we have been spoiled by weekly iterations for the past two years and now as the world begins to churn at a normal pace again, we unfortunately must get less of these amazing individuals.

Alanah: Does her best to keep these genius minds in-line and on topic despite it being futile. Initially wished in some eps she had a chance to talk more but realized she’s listening just as intently as I am.

Mike: Offers dry British humor and cynicism which in my personal limits are about two hours and so this show hits the perfect marker for me. Game dev stories are insightful and give way to a bigger picture.

Austin: Delivers the best behind the scenes stories in my opinion, and is wicked at the piano. I love his genuine love for the craft and his respect for his colleagues. There are times where I wish he wasn’t cut off and times when I wish he’d get to the point. That’s nuance, baby!

Troy: A guy who feels like your really cool uncle you love to hang around but is the one person who is very hard to get ahold of. When you guys do hang, he makes crystals with you from the crystal kit that you both went to Michael’s and bought in the arts and crafts section. After failing twice, and getting it right the third time, he tells you that’s what being a scientist is all about. By the way, did you know he’s done voice work for two Cabela’s Hunts games?

The best show that has nothing to do with video games

This rambling group of misfits manages to never stay on topic yet continually enlighten me on the state and history of music, film, and games. That statement might seem a contradiction to the review title, but I invite you to give the show a listen and disagree with me, babyyy.

A Must Listen!

These guys have such a great chemistry! I just wish they’d talk about video games for once…
