Hobo Podcast Episode 1
Starting off on what we'd call a downright weird foot, this episode is light on news, but that doesn't keep the HomeRow crew from sharing thoughts on if Destiny's House of Wolves will get any of us, or anyone at all back into the game, as well as discussing the concept of permanence in games. Joe used to get anxious when making decisions in games, but with age has decided to just go for it and not worry, while Doxy does her best to go back and play the polar opposite. We chat about Telltale games and their idea of permanence, and what a series like Call of Duty could do with the idea of permanent choices. Also every game needs the Nemesis System. Doxy also brings up a few games she has yet to try but can't wait in Killing Floor 2 and Besieged, while Brian puts in more time with Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and Final Fantasy Record Keeper, a mobile game that has a great concept, but execution falls flat on.
Games from the chattings: Destiny, Besieged, The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Killing Floor 2, Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball, Shadow Warrior, Call of Duty, Battlefield: Hardline, Tropico 5, Dungeons 2, Final Fantasy Record Keeper, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin
