Sup, Holmes?: Disturbing trends with Octodad dev


2:45 PM on 03.18.2012




[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Missed the live recording? The full episode is above. Download the audio-only podcast version of this episode or subscribe to the podcast feed. Find more episodes here.]

On this week's Sup Holmes? we have the one and only Phil Tibitoski from Young Horses (developer of the brilliant, award winning freeware title Octodad and it's upcoming sequel Octodad: Dadliest Catch) to talk about the today's most bizarre and disturbing trends in gaming. From fans forming activists groups to demand that developers change their games to meet the will of the audience, to devs charging $20 for on-disc DLC, to PBS claiming that Super Mario Bros. is surrealist art, we'll be keeping it hot. 

I guess that last one isn't all that "distrurbing", but I'll find a way to make it disturbing. I promise.

So jump in the chat and join us for an hour of good times, great people, and amazing conversation. If we fail to deliver, feel free to report us to the Federal Trade Commission.

Meaty turn-based RPG Pier Solar HD hits Wii U in November

WaterMelon's homebrew project Pier Solar and the Great Architects pushed the Sega Genesis to its limits as a new release in 2010 (!) which I thought was courageous, at the time. Still do. The game shipped on an actual cartrid...more
