Sup Holmes: Flirting with a hot dog with Diego and Emmett


[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. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

Today on Sup, Holmes? we’ll be joined by Diego “Cool” Garcia and Emmett Butler, developers of the upcoming iPhone game Heads Up! Hot Dogs. Diego also made a game called Super Flirt Off!, and it is one of my favorite free games ever. The way it turns regular verbal interactions into a nailbiting gameplay experience is nothing short of genius. David Cage and BioWare could learn a thing or two from Diego about making conversation a real part of a game.

Watch the show live at 1pm PST/4pm EST, and please join us in the chat. We’ll get freaky if you want.

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..?
