Farts 'N' Crafts: 'C.O.D-a Catch 'Em All!'
by Max Scoville

In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Am I relevant now, teens? Hm?

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge photo
Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge
by Max Scoville



This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. 

So, here's what we did instead.

Hey gang! Here I am again, shouting about the dang news. Super Smash Bros. and Borderlands are making big piles of headlines, and The Last of Us is getting an HD re-release, so I guess we haven't seen the last of it just quite yet. Pokémon and Zelda are getting Monopolized, and The Evil Within is spooky.

Between the Alien: Isolation release date the new Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC that features the Predator, it seems like we have enough of an excuse this week to draw some Alien Vs. Predator fanart. Also, both involved parties are Draculas, because I felt like it. Man, this series is stupid. Hope you enjoy it!

I have to go to the zoo for the rest of the week because my step-sister is getting married (that's not a stupid joke, that's actually where the wedding's being held) so here's some funky-fresh two-day old news for you regarding April Fool's Day 2014, and the amount of harm it caused our collective psyche.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today. That's what the focus of this week's Dumb Idiot Ideas is the power of the cloud, and how it will change all of us as people.

DTOID News: Arkham Knights, Watchdogs, Goats and Ninja Turtles
by Max Scoville

Today, I can finally talk about my impressions of Batman: Arkham Knight, which I saw back and GDC. There’s some new stuff about Watchdogs that’s actually gotten my attention, Sonic has Zelda-themed DLC, Fulgore’s in Killer Instinct finally, Goat Simulator rules, and Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks exactly as idiotic as a reasonable person would expect such a thing to be.

Podtoid 285: Child-Child

This week on Podtoid, we talked extensively about video games, as well as Cheech & Chong, Tim Schafer, and Macauley Caulkin. But we also suffered some major technical difficulties, so we lost about an hour of the conversa...

There was a wonderful spread of strange and interesting indie games at GDC, including a special exhibit called Alt.Ctrl, focusing on projects that made use of unusual controllers. Bill Zoeker screwed around with these for a bit before discussing what it's like to play a game with pedals, knobs, dials, cables, sleeping bags, and a receipt printer.

If you want to find out more, I dug up the websites for all of these games:

You guys might've seen the charming, casual, laid-back interview I did with Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowry. Here's the interview I did with Devolver's co-founder Mike Wilson, which took place several shots of tequila later and got slightly weirder. We discuss the company's roots, it's future plans, and where they intend to go beyond game publishing and movie producing. Porn? Sure, why not.

Here's this week's Farts 'N' Crafts! I'm a little burnt-out following GDC, so today's topic involves children attacking a goose with a broom. If you'd like to hang this on your wall, you can buy a print here. If you'd like to make your own picture of kids fighting a geese, go right ahead and drop it in the comments here, or shoot me an email.

Here we are again, my darlings. This week, Max Scoville, Jonathan Holmes, and Conrad Zimmerman discuss getting old, The Offspring, the collapse of society in the coming decades, and the fact that Spider-Man was touched as a child by a man named Skip. No, for real. Also, video games are mentioned briefly.

Here's your direct download link, and here's the ol' iTunes link.

by Max Scoville



GDC has come to a close, and it's certainly been a busy week for news. Sony announced Project Morpheus, their entry into the virtual reality race, as well as some crazy eye-tracking tech. The second Oculus Rift development kit is up for pre-order, Ubisoft announced their Frenchest game yet, Assassin's Creed: Unity, which might be accompanied by another AC title, "Comet." There's a rumor about Far Cry 4 involving yetis and elephants, and we got our first look at Borderlands 2 on Vita.

by Max Scoville

Literally the first thing I did at GDC this year was sit down with Capy Games president Nathan Vella and talk about their upcoming games Super Time Force and Below, as well as his hosting duties at this year's IGF awards.

Also, a woman in the background knocked over a lamp and broke it, which I thought was pretty funny.

Hey gang! Here's a hot and messy GDC edition of Farts 'N' Crafts, brought to you by liquor and cocktail napkins, and also cocktails, made with liquor. Sonic The Hedgehog is covered in bandages and scarves in Sonic Boom, so I drew him barfing up SpaghettiOs. Because cocktails.
