Episode 109 – Games Within Games
Why is it so common to find games within modern games? Is there a difference between a mini-game and a ‘game within a game’? And what makes either so appealing? We discuss this topic, and our favorite examples, on this week’s episode. Plus, Sonic Mania, Yakuza Kiwami, the Gwent open beta, PlayStation 5 rumors, and Drew Hayes’ NPCs.
