Episode 102 – When Games Fail to Optimize
What happens when games fail to optimize? How does it effect the player experience? Is it time to hold modern developers accountable for adhering to ‘safe’ conventions? Yes, this is a gameplay vs. graphics discussion, but so much more! Join us as we begin what is sure to become a series of critiques on modern, AAA game development. Plus, Chris shares his impressions of Puyo Puyo Tetris; Jim talks retrogaming with the RetroPie; Doc returns to interactive fiction with “The Sea Eternal;” Chris’ gamer cred is challenged in a new Are You Still Playing? featuring Hearthstone and Fire Emblem Heroes; and Jim reads hate mail in our new, first-time ever, Jim Bag segment.
