“So Here’s The Thing” brings a more focused conversation to the table, featuring a group discussion stemming from a specific topic. These topics range from the conventional to the bizarre, but are always peppered with a touch of DWF unpredictability.

Taylor Cocke and Mitch Dyer are joined by Robin Taylor to discuss videogames’ atypical, odd, and mostly atrocious storytelling, as well as the boss fights that conclude them. They also yammer about the correct context for bosses, games’ influence in film,  and the Citizen Kane of video games.

  • Dead Space 2
  • Bulletstorm

“So Here’s The Thing” brings a more focused conversation to the table, featuring a group discussion stemming from a specific topic. These topics range from the conventional to the bizarre, but are always peppered with a touch of DWF unpredictability.

For the opening round of our newest podcast, we’ve got Mitch Dyer, Tim Seppala, and Taylor Cocke on the mic. Their conversation flourishes on the heels of this article, penned by a game developer, who details his Dead Space 2 experience with specific references to immersion in videogames.  The boys expand the discussion to include Amnesia, Lord Of The Rings, and games criticism.
