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.
- 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
Hosts: Melvin, Brodie, Clayton, Liz
This week, our hosts discuss the need, or lack thereof, of deep stories in video games.
- 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
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!
- 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
Hosts: Melvin, Clayton, Ryan
This is our special E3 episode, broken up into four parts. Part 1, we talk all about the Microsoft conference!
- 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
