  • You know sometimes the games are done with best practices in mind, with some experience and with some thoughts about making the most marketable products, but sometimes there are games like Doom, like Carmageddon, like Ion Fury, games that are just made to bring fun to the creators and people like them. The creators had an idea of the game they wanted to play and they proceeded creating said game. Which was… a success! I am convinced that Ion Fury is the fourth classic Build Engine game. Listen to find out more or – even better – go get yourself Ion Fury and play it!

  • Yeah. It’s that one most wonderful time of the year when we all sit around and contemplate what the hell had happened. And this time it’s not just me asking myself “what the hell was that” but everyone who survived the year. Was it that bad really though? I don’t know. We had some good games and some pretty bad ones. But most importantly we had some time to play them (not me though I was working day job). And I hope that we have become more content with what we have and what we achieved. I wish you all to survive the upcoming year and have more interesting games in your life as well as more time to play them.And you heard that right: Duck in Games is now part of Geeks Rising network. I am happy as Duck about it.

  • The game has the same name as the novel by Harlan Ellison! Wow! Could it be that the game is based on the novel? Could it be that we are people of fine culture now? Not so fast, cowboy. How about we chop the game up and make it a really good story with no author’s vision, but with uplifting and Freudian ending?Yeah, it’s not a bad game for what it’s worth, but the ending was not the one Mr Ellison wanted and it shows. The game that starts great ends up on a very meh and unbelievable note.But it’s worth to play and it’s worth to learn the story of it. So fire this up and let’s go on an adventure where we learn something new!

  • This quacker is back with another rant about how good was back in the days and how bad things are now, right? Wrong! I have proof that modernized installment of the well-established franchise is inferior to its origins. And I can back it up not with just my own thoughts and impressions, but also with an objective result of it: Secret of Monkey Island is more widely known than Tales of Monkey Island.

    So yeah. There is a distinct lack of something in the Tales of Monkey Island and I think I know what it is. And if you want to know too I am more than willing to share it with you because I have spent WEEKS trying to understand it not to make it disappear into the oblivion with me. Have this episode and enjoy!

  • During these uneasy times when we have to stay for a while in the house and play games with no way of getting to the bar and having a very adult drink to quite adult-ly lose control over the actions till we can’t remember anything the next day it is important to know what kind of games do you play and what levels of interactivity in your games you prefer. Maybe you are really into those TV shows, where you have no control over the situation, or maybe you are one of those creative personalities who loves to build giant golden cocks (roosters if you’re from the US) in Minecraft?I’m saying that it’s about time we explore the ways you play and the games you prefer to know yourself better. And – hopefully – to decide what you like to play so you never again buy a game and learn that it’s not what you have expected.

  • You know how people always argue, that the gameplay is more important than any kind of story, then some degenerate appears that says that the graphics is the thing to go, but they never even anticipated THE GOOSE! The Untitled Goose Game appeared and proved once and for all – gameplay and the story both matter, because Goose game had nothing to offer in both. But people did have fun with it and people still care about it! How can I say, that UGG has nothing?! Well, my friend, the game has a gimmick. It has nothing to do with the gameplay or story.

  • Pacing of the game is important because if you pace your game right, it makes players pay more attention and look for more stuff to do in your game. Also good pacing is benevolent to the game flow in general. Everything will feel natural and nothing will feel out of place. Strategy games have it the most obvious way and although due to various personal reasons I didn’t prepare well for the episode, I hope sharing my experience and thoughts is still acceptable.

  • We deserve much better! We deserve more! We should be able to play a game that has more work put into it, that has less unbelievable things that break immersion in it. We deserve more and we deserve it better. And we got Skyrim. Yeah… About that…But this podcast is about Oblivion, it is about comparing Oblivion to Morrowind, which is better and Skyrim, which is also better, to try and figure out what was so wrong about the Oblivion, that it is rarely remembered as a game but mostly for some history and facts about the imperial province of Cyrodiil. And I think we can grasp it, guys!

  • What is the idea of video games and gaming in general? Excitement, fun, emotions galore! Not boredom, isn’t it? Although there are games, that rely on you having a good time by repeating the same process over and over there are games like Farming sim and so on, but sometimes when you hear that there is an Alien game you don’t expect it to be a farming sim. You expect it to be something more exciting. A horror game maybe? But you will be gravely mistaken for the game is not really scary nor it’s well-put together. I am going through all of the problems with the idea of the game in the podcast and you can agree or disagree with me, but the fact remains the same – game could have been improved and improved a lot!

  • Did you ever play the original Prey? Chances are – you never heard, that there was a Prey before Bethesda’s Prey. And chances are – you may have never seen it. But if you did – you know how good it was and what a journey it sent you off to. The story, the uncertain gravitation, the portals, all that appeared as a novelty, that didn’t get old. But there is also a chance you enjoyed the new Prey. And you might not understand why people trash it in comparison to the original.Well, if you are curious to know what the original did so good, that the newer couldn’t and what the hell even was Prey before Bethesda decided not to remaster it – you’re more than welcome to listen to the podcast and figure that out.
