Guess what? Not all video games are about shooting people in the face or driving recklessly! Games have evolved into a rich and varied medium where there's something for everyone. No gaming experience? No console? No idea where to start? Enter your heroines, Anna Tarkov and Jessica Dennis.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbyeI leave and heave a sigh and say goodbyeAfter 137 wonderful episodes, we bid you, our faithful listeners, the very fondest of farewells. We've arrived at the metaphorical fork in the road, and we don't even care what a dreadful cliché that is. We hope you've had as much fun, learned as much, and generally had as good a time as we have with Unconsoleable.Remember, aloha means goodbye, but it also means hello and love: so to you, our listeners, aloha!Keep in touch:@jessicadennis and @annatarkov on twitterAnna's new venture, Indie SidekickEmail AnnaEmail Jessica
Jessica has gone over to the Dark Side because they have candy there. And speaking of candy, we speculate about forthcoming Blizzard/Activision King games, discuss a weird silver lining to Thailand's military coup, and of course, talk about what ELSE we're playing.
We were all ready to love new puzzler Twofold, but we're... unsure. Also, Anna dives pretty deep into Crashlands while Jessica tries to stay objective about a game designed by Donald Rumsfeld. Yes, that Donald Rumsfeld.
Genuine fan of the show and our ESN fearless leader, Moisés Chiullan, stops by and talks about his gaming credentials (or lack thereof) and we try not to shame him too hard about not being a real filthy casual.
If you heard Episode 42, you might recall that we said some things about iOS gaming site Touch Arcade that were a bit harsh and unkind. While we stand by a lot of what we said, we believe that we unfairly mischaracterized the site in a number of ways as well.
Besides porn on extremely old, outdated types of media, we talked about Touch Arcade's Patreon (spoiler alert: we are not fans), Bethesda's "surprise" hit Fallout Shelter, Nintendo's pronouncements on how their mobile games will be monetized and much, much more!
