Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 39] : Further Destroying the Proud Frankenstein Name

We’ve got a little bit of Spring Fever this week, since the weather’s been warming up, so we came into the studio without an outline or a topic. What resulted was a conversation about diets, Pinterest algorithms, and our unanimous hatred of inspirational quotes.

After the break, we dig into some recent games we’ve been toying around with, including Dying Light, Stardew Valley, Fire Emblem Fates, Grand Theft Auto Online, and so much more. We also talk about Mandi’s passion for spreadsheets, the origins of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, and how Chess is an example of the worst map design ever. Oh, and there are plenty of old stories about dating, both in-game and IRL.

A Bunch of Toys

Plus, the Rev details an elaborate plan to create complex stories inside of Skyrim, which you can read more about at Rebecca Elfprincess’ Shared Skyrim Narrative on Tumbler.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a very chill Spring Fever edition of the Half-Glass Gaming podcast.
