    No Cartridge 193 - People Love the Demiurge!

    A. Degen (not just Any Degen) returns to the show yet again for another wide-ranging chat- this time about Why Games, with a fun detour into conspiracist thinking, meaning created by the unfinished experience, deliberately fragmentary meaning, and other basic stuff like that.

Patch Notes

I love patch notes so. I love news and views. I love the mass effect pod. I’m not kidding. Patch notes more frequently (Ty you for your label and the current patch notes quantity is sufficient just trying to further express how much I enjoy patch notes). All of the No Cartridge content is very good but patch notes is my favorite.

One of the smartest gaming podcasts around

A great podcast if you appreciate deeper discussions into games than the usual brand of Gamer Podcast (you know the type). Trevor always gives insight into the ways politics are expressed in games and consistently gets very interesting guests with expertise in a variety of different subjects. Come for the great interviews with people like Night in the Woods’ Scott Benson and Giant Bomb’s Alex Navarro, stay for the Marxist analysis. Don’t sleep on it!

Don’t recommend

Seems like it’s mostly just losers complaining about actually successful people and popular things 🤷‍♂️ skip this one
