    16/03/2020 Duração: 01h03min

    This week, we chat about nostalgia, remakes, and references.

    This week, inspired by the new Dragon Ball Z game and all of the narrative... choices made by Dragon Ball as a franchise, we talk about power creep. What is it, how does it affect gameplay, and what is the impact it has on the narrative of a game? Also, Chris gushes a little bit about Sekiro and we shill REAL hard.

    Episode 59.XIII: Final Chapter -- Prologue

    24/02/2020 Duração: 55min

    This very goofy title is courtesy of Dylan, and this episode has nothing to do with Kingdom Hearts. Instead, we're wrapping up our two-part reverse Writer's Room bit by going back to our personal white whale, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. We've both consumed this film with our human eyes, and now it's time for us to face the music of all the crap we shoveled onto every piece of marketing this movie put out. Come along, won't you?

    This week, a Dragon Quest veteran and a Dragon Quest newbie sit down together to talk about the new Netflix-distributed Dragon Quest film, "Your Story." Is it a good movie? Is it a good adaptation? Is it fun? We'll find out! And use this as an opportunity to do our usual Writers' Room style shows, but in reverse!

    The Booth!

    03/02/2020 Duração: 56min

    Oh, hello! I didn't see you there. We're just stepping into this vocal booth to do a little bit of cold-reading and directing of one another in this nice, intimate podcast space. Come along, won't you? Maybe you'll learn something, too! Backstage Gaming is a proud member of the HP Video Game Podcast Network (@hpvgpodnetwork on Twitter) Enjoy our show?

    Fight Me! In the Theater!

    30/01/2020 Duração: 34min

    Hello! Happy late episode! This week, we keep it short and sweet and spend our time musing on the surprising number of parallels between learning how to play a fighting game and learning how to be an actor. If that sounds weird, well... I guess you'll just have to tune in and find out what we mean.

  • Cmon and SMASH

    C'mon and SMASH

    20/01/2020 Duração: 56min

    This week, we're taking a surprisingly topical bent and talking about the newest character added to the roster of Super Smash Bros. More specifically, we take close looks at how Smash Bros. goes about adapting so many disparate genres and designs into its unique fighting-game blend.

  • How Puzzling

    How Puzzling

    13/01/2020 Duração: 51min

    This week, we chat puzzles, but maybe not in the way you're thinking. Puzzles and mysteries draw us in, and some games use this to their benefit, even if they don't seem like "Puzzle Games" on the surface.

  • At the Very Beginning

    At the Very Beginning

    16/12/2019 Duração: 51min

    This week, we decide to chat about how games start. First impressions are important, and the way a game kicks off can do wonders to help set up a player's immersion and expectations for the experience they're about to have. Also, Dylan talks about like 7 Final Fantasy games in a shockingly small amount of time. Also included: Tasteful Pizza Nudity, a Sip of Alucard, and Maintaining our Brand Backstage Gaming is a proud member of the HP Video Game Podcast Network (@hpvgpodnetwork on Twitter) Enjoy our show?

    Episode 64 (Minus 11...) ((This is an Early 3D Retrospective))

    09/12/2019 Duração: 01h06min

    This week, Dylan brings a delectable selection to the table; a variety of games from the late 90's and early 00's, early adopters of the wonderful world of 3D graphics. We look at reviews from when these games came out, are awed by some master wordsmiths, and see how much the intervening decades have impacted how we think about these games. Also included: Gamespot Time Capsule, Miyamoto Clones, KYAHH!, and Wiseau the Hedgehog Backstage Gaming is a proud member of the HP Video Game Podcast Network (@hpvgpodnetwork on Twitter) Enjoy our show?

  • Truth??

    Truth??

    02/12/2019 Duração: 22min

    With Dylan busy for the holiday, Chris goes rogue this week for a short, sweet, and slightly more produced episode. He talks about games with branching stories, the beauty of discovery, and how much he dislikes using the word "True" in reference to games. He even went nuts and created a basic beat to underscore the show!

    The Art of Magic, ft. Dakota Curry

    25/11/2019 Duração: 56min

  • Writers Room: Rogue-Like

    Writer's Room: Rogue-Like

    18/11/2019 Duração: 52min

    It's episode 50! How is that even possible? Regardless of the multitude of mistakes that has lead to us still doing this show, we're here to celebrate with a special take on our Writer's Room segment; this time, rather than examining a series or property, we decide, in our hubris, to tackle the question of how to turn the Rogue-Like, a style of game defined by constant failure and repetition, into a non-interactive story. And we find some pretty rad stuff along the way. Also included: Roguelike Soulsborne, Kid Detective; Super Saiyan Magenta: Groundhog's Day, But Make It Rocky Backstage Gaming is a proud member of the HP Video Game Podcast Network Enjoy our show?

  • Well, This is Tedious

    Well, This is Tedious

    11/11/2019 Duração: 50min

    This week, in our hubris, we decide to tackle a game neither of us has played, but darn-it, the discourse around Death Stranding had us both so riled up. We look at tedium as a narrative tool in games, talk about games that decide not to be fun, and think for a while about why that might not be such a bad thing.
