The National Pastime – Episode 14

Hosts: Melvin, Ryan, Megan, Zack, Sofia

The last episode of the season and possibly our best episode yet! Our hosts this week discuss hyperviolence in video games, but the conversation evolves into so much more.

Show Notes:

  • Just keep in mind that we recorded this early May so we didn’t know about FFXV yet…
  • Melvin also says something with Halo and green blood that he confused hearing somebody talk about it rather than actual source. SORRY!

The National Pastime – Episode 13

The National Pastime – Episode 13

Hosts: Melvin, Brodie, Clayton, Liz

This week, our hosts discuss the need, or lack thereof, of deep stories in video games.

Show Notes:

  • This was a really short episode because a few of our podcasters had to leave for apointments. I still think it’s a good episode, it”s just shorter than our usual.
  • We recorded this before The Last of Us came out so weren’t able to include it in this conversation.

The National Pastime – Episode 12

The National Pastime – Episode 12

Hosts: Melvin, Megan, Kayley, Ryan

This week, our hosts talk about who they’d be on a sitcom set and backwards compatibility in games and the next gen!

Show notes:

  • It should be noted that we recorded this at the end of April so there’s a lot of stuff about next-gen we didn’t know yet for the conversation, but it doesn’t affect the conversation THAT much.
  • Oh, also, I didn’t realize until after the episode but we never really finalized what kind of sitcom character Ryan would be. I think he’d be more of a Joey (from Friends) character cause he has lots of sex and is dumb =D

The National Pastime – E3 Part 1

The National Pastime – E3 Part 1

Hosts: Melvin, Clayton, Ryan

This is our special E3 episode, broken up into four parts. Part 1, we talk all about the Microsoft conference!

Show Notes:

  • We recorded the episode before Microsoft’s backtracking on their DRM and used games policy so, yeah, we talk about the situation as it was a few days after E3
