Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! You know when you reach the point in a video game where you find yourself doing something very different from the rest of the game? Well, that’s what hosts David and Holly talk about this week, citing some examples of when games have done it wrong, and when they’ve done better!
Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week, hosts David and Holly talk through their first impressions now that they’re a little ways into Mass Effect Andromeda! The game is a great jumping-in point for the world of Mass Effect, so it’s a good one for fans and newcomers alike. They try not to give too many spoilers, as well.
Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week we went over an hour (sorry!) for hosts David, Holly, and Julia to rank the Mass Effect and Dragon Age trilogies. Our ranking might surprise you, because it surprised us! I think we have some replays in our future. It also psyched us up for the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda!
Recently, I got sick after coming back from travel, which is the worst. What was awful about the cold I had though was how it didn’t have too many symptoms (sure, slight sore throat, little congested, whatever) except for an absolute exhaustion that rendered me completely useless. In addition to that exhaustion was just a need to ignore everything else going on and a deep desire to do something comforting, entertaining, and familiar. (Much as David was feeling recently.)
And so I booted up Dragon Age: Origins and started a new character.
Welcome to the Comparative Opinions podcast! This week, on the heels of hearing such positive things about the game Dishonored 2, hosts David and Holly talk a bit about representation in video games, how it’s improving, why it’s important, and why it’s important to celebrate that it’s improving. They are also less than enthusiastic about the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XV.
