MisanthroPlay - A Video Games Podcast
« on: March 07, 2016, 06:56:10 AM »
Howdy folks! As much as I hate shameless self promotion, sometimes it's a necessary evil, so I think now's as good a time as any to let you know about the video games podcast hosted by critic Alvin Chua and myself, MisanthroPlay.

We've done a few episodes devoted to in-depth examinations of games we loved, like the Assault Suits series and Metal Gear Solid V, but at the moment it's a bit more of a free-form discussion of what we've been playing, what's new, what's old and what else is making waves or flying under the radar in the games press. Our earlier episodes sound a little rough, but I think we've improved.

We're trying to keep to a bi-weekly release schedule at present. It should go without saying, but the content of these podcasts does not reflect the views of RPGFan or its staff.

I'll update this thread with new episodes as-and-when, which are currently scheduled for Fridays.

New episode up today. Hooray!

Episode #8 Idol Chatter
This week, Alvin pets all the animals of Far Cry Primal and rebels against KAISER OBLIVION in Bravely Second: End Layer. Robert finds that Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest hasn't yet ignited a flame in his heart, but he finds a kindred spirit in a Stranger of Sword City. We also learned to stop worrying and love save-scumming in XCOM 2 and officially find SUPERHOT to be SUPERCOOL.

Last week's Nintendo Direct has brought a wealth of exciting news: We yearn to robo-rock to Kirby Planet Robobot, we cautiously observe Paper Mario Color Splash. Notably, we learn that Atlus/Intelligent Systems collaboration Tokyo Mirage Sessions is financed by idol jimusho Avex, and why we're not OK with that on an ethical level.

But hey! We're not the type of podcast that's content to go out on a negative, so we express our enthusiasm for upcoming hot 2016 releases Psycho Pass: Mandatory Happiness and No Man's Sky.

Episode #9 A Weekend in Hell

In keeping with the theme of Easter weekend, this episode of MisanthroPlay discusses video game depictions of the hottest of afterlife destinations. From the heavy metal-tinged inferno of Doom to the filthy vermin-filled pits of Yokai Dochuuki, we examine the medium's wide variety of hellscapes and how they choose to simulate endless torment. When you shuffle off this mortal coil, will you wander through an extradimensional building with no exit in Corpse Party, or will you face endless hordes of chittering skulls and insects in Devil Daggers? Perhaps you'll end up in a Living Hell of your own design, like poor ol' James of Silent Hill 2? Spin the wheel and decide your fate!
