    EXP Podcast #743: Miyazaki and the Family Erdtree

    EXP Podcast #743: Miyazaki and the Family Erdtree

    It's Elden Ring and The Shadow of the Erdtree time and with it comes the predictable discussion about difficulty in games.  I guess it makes sense that a game about making looping runs through a punishing world gets people fired up, but I still think it's hilarious that people seem to be surprised at how hard these games continue to be.  And thanks to a new interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki, we can be certain that this difficulty is not only intentional, but also pursued out of respect to players.  This week, we dissect some of his comments and consider the long-term legacy of his design sensibilities.

    EXP Podcast #741: Summer Game Fest 2024

    EXP Podcast #741: Summer Game Fest 2024

    Now that the great collapse of the E3 ecosystem is well and truly complete, we're beginning to see saplings spring from the ashes.  And it's not just a few; Summer Game Fest and the numerous other publisher-specific, indie, PC, and various thematic conferences have quickly formed a forest and are spreading the video game news over the wind like a dense cloud of pollen.  This week we take our antihistamines and dive into some of the many game announcements we've seen over the past couple weeks.

    EXP Podcast #739: Animal Well Debrief

    EXP Podcast #739: Animal Well Debrief

    I've always lived in areas with municipal water systems, so wells are a bit of a foreign concept.  But now that I've played Animal Well, I'm basically an expert.  I was surprised by the number of hidden eggs and platforming puzzles, but I guess that's just the miracle of underground waterways.  This week we debrief after seeing the credits, but most definitely not all the secrets, hidden in Animal Well!

Great insight, hilarious, geeky

Very interesting and in-depth podcast about games, game communities, game mechanics, and the game industry. I look forward to this every week.

One of the best gaming podcasts out there

I’ve been listening for about a year and a half now, and I’ve got to say these guys are criminally underrated.

Their debriefs, even if I don’t agree with many of them, are very well thought out and often lead to you having a better understanding about what works/what didn’t in a game. For example, their breath of the wild debriefs were incredibly funny and engaging, and underscored what made that game so special. Their weekly discussion topics are refreshing to listen to as opposed the usual news roundup of other podcasts. Finally, their end of the year content is always really fun to listen to.

Great gaming discussion

EXP is always a treat to listen to. At the start of the episode, I don't know whether I get a thoughtful review, a nostalgic trip, or a hilarious debate, but it is always a good time.
