We also discuss how great the RPGs of the last 3 years have been and whether or not you should play Sunset Overdrive.

Borderlands the pre-sequel

This week Brandon is joined by Tony Lawrence (Studio Head at 2K Australia), Jonathan Pelling (Creative Director at 2K Australia), Anthony Burch (writer at Gearbox) and Matt Armstrong (Franchise Director of Borderlands at Gearbox) to talk about Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Unfortunately technology conspired against us and the discussion got cut a bit short due to a dropped internet connection but not before getting some time in to talk about the secret of Borderlands world building, the Aussie flavor of the game, who knows about what secrets and much more. It’s so much fun that it takes two continents to hold it!

Dead_of_Winter_podcast

So after starting with a terrible Great Gatsby joke that goes over like a lead balloon, I enjoy a great conversation with Dead of Winter creators Colby Dauch, Jon Gilmour, and Isaac Vega about their zombie boardgame that straddles the line between cooperation and competition. What does it have to do with Lost, what did it used to look like, what are the plans for the add-on? And, of course, who are our favorite characters and why?

Fellow Wildstar reviewer Phil Kollar from Polygon joins me for a conversation about a game he likes that I don’t like. We discuss what works, what doesn’t work, what are the unique challenges when reviewing a target as vast and changing as an MMO, and do you really have to be a fan of Animal Crossing to be into Wildstar’s housing?
