Our good friend Damon Brown is back in the studio with us again to geek out about movies, music, tv, and games. Carlos was sick last week, so he's got a lot of pent-up stuff to talk about. Apparently, Jason has to see Drive, because he's not in on all the cultural references. Also on the docket today, a discussion about the best video game soundtracks.
Links from this week's episode:
- Jason's got a problem with Hulu Plus. Namely, the annoyingly high volume of commercials on this high-tier pay service.
- Hotline Miami is a hard, uber-violent puzzle game. With amazing music. Check out the soundtrack on SoundCloud.
- The soundtrack for Halo 4 debuted higher up on the Billboard charts than any other game soundtrack ever. Is it the best of all time? Maybe not. Baba Yetu, from Civilization IV, is the only song composed for a game to ever win a Grammy. It's worth a listen.
- The parody twitter account Peter Molydeux is at least partly responsible for Peter Molyneux forming a new company, whose first product is the really unusual experiment Curiosity.
- Carlos wants everyone to go grab Ultima VII from GOG. He's been playingUltima IX, which is neat, but not as good as VII.
- Assassin's Creed III is good, but Carlos has some real problems with the artificial intelligence.
- Damon and Jason are enjoying Letterpress, but Alex really isn't into these sort of word games.
- Alex is really into The Silent History, a new way of serializing a novel on mobile devices that ties into your location.
- Go check out Carlos' Kickstarter side project, Everybody Game.
