Half-Glass Gaming [Episode 9] : Inherently Impervious to Bullet Damage

Inherently Impervious to Bullet Damage

In this episode of the Half-Glass Gaming podcast, Mandi tells of the grand adventures she had while trying to acquire a set of yak-based superpowers. This leads the gang into an attempt to name a video game in which you can play video games while possessing superpowers. Spoiler alert: We found one! And, of course, Witcher 3 references make a comeback, as we have a healthy little debate about whether Witcher powers are magic, superpowers, or both.

After that, we get out our pails and shovels to dig into the sandbox genre, and we draw a line in the sand between sandbox games and open world games. Those terms won’t be used interchangeably here at Half-Glass Gaming.

Also, this episode is full of nonviolent GTA mimes, Fallout 3 babies, and Domestic Dog Simulator (or DDS for short). Get it while it’s hot, folks!

To keep the conversation rolling, step out of your sandbox for a bit and contact us on Twitter.

    I’d forgot I hadn’t listened to the podcast until I came home from work today. It was a great surprise! Sandbox games aren’t my preferred type of game but you always have interesting commentary.

    In the future I’d love to hear an episode on platform titles or adventure games. They’re some of my favorite games and something I feel modern games do poorly.
