Podtoid 41 – Pretty cool characters

werew

Firstly: SPOILER ALERT FOR EVERY GAME EVER MADE, EVER. 

This time around, you’ll unfortunately hear Jim and myself (mostly me) cut in and out a few times without explanation. They are but growing pains in another step of Podtoid’s evolution. Not only have we switched recorders (the devilishly handsome BlindsideDork now holds the microphone), but Podtoid 41 represents the first news-unrelated episode we’ve more or less ever done.

This week, Qais Fulton, Daniel “Lingen” Lingen, Jim Sterling and I talk about videogame characters. Just videogame characters. Our favorites, the merits of the silent protagonist, and the people of Rapture. No new news — just character discussion.

I had a spectacularly hard time choosing a best question for this week, but Leviticus’s provided a pretty good conclusion to our lengthy talks. Post your email in the comments and your money shall be delivered posthaste.

Go to the official Podtoid page and give it a listen, then come back and tell me: what did you guys think about the new format? Do you prefer individual news commentaries, or larger discussions of grander subjects? Hit the comments.
