This episode is, as they say, a grower not a show-er. The guys (for some reason) start off talking about their Coravins, then Dave transitions into talking about his new iPhone. This is probably a good time to remind you that without some boring parts in the shows you wouldn’t appreciate the great bits when they occur.
Darryl got a 3D printer and, probably because he’s a good father, decided to make toys for his girls instead of weapons like Dave would have. Then Dave went to LA where he saw his High School friend and comedian Brian Babylon and Multiplayer on Dash curator Alex Rubens, before going to a day trip to Orlando where he packed in too much drinking into too short a time.
Dave played Ori with his 9 year old son, and found it difficult to explain what a Metroid-Vania style game is to him, and why he should care. Darryl played some adventure games and the guys finally played Who’s Your Daddy. Turns out they are both awful dads, but you probably already knew that.
In emails, Dave tells the story of his Oktoberfest in Breese, IL back in 1994 (spoiler: it ends poorly), and the guys answer a question about what some one in Marketing does over the course of a game’s development cycle.
