ON THIS EPISODE: Parks and Recreation is a good– but not great– show (or is it?). Proteus has more to it than meets the eye. The Wii U is still selling pretty poorly, which isn’t great.

PLUS: Listener mail about gaming difficulty and its effects on the medium’s merits, how long it takes us to judge a game after playing it, and more!

Above: Proteus sure is nice looking, eh?

The second recording of episode 70 (the first was lost) features the following: Super Mario 3D World is better single player! Proteus is trippy, immersive, and interesting! Wind Waker HD has a very frustrating sidequest! PLUS: Listener mail about the Wii U’s lifespan and whether spoiled gamers are to blame for Wii U’s misery. AND: A discussion about immersive games, and what makes a game immersive vs. not.

How much does death affect the story of a game? How many times can you re-play a section before it starts to take away from a narrative experience? If you’ve ever wanted insight into what might make games tick with respect to this idea, this is the episode for you. Aside from that we discuss ‘Papers, Please’, ‘Super Mario 3D World’, and ‘Wind Waker HD’, as well as tackling plenty of listener mail. Enjoy!

Jack says that this was a pretty good episode, and I think I agree! Lots of talk about Super Mario 3D World and how Mario games should be or are judged, some talk of Mighty Switch Force 2, Ocarina of Time, Jett Rocket II, and Laura’s new 3DS XL during what we played, and then a whole heaping pile of listener mail rounds out the show. So far so good!

Despite a massive pile of listener mail this week, we manage to wrangle the podcast length down to 135 minutes compared to last week’s 180 minute unfinished monster. It’s also a really solid podcast! What we played: Call of Duty: Ghosts, Wii Fit U, Sonic: Lost World, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. No discussion topic, but a LOT of listener mail rounds this out!

Jack drew a pretty picture of Link and Laura at the end of the last stream.

Twelve hours after finishing our Extra Life 24-hour live stream, we record another podcast! We discuss Batman (aka Austin excessively criticizes it), Mario Sunshine, Mario Galaxy 2, and 3D platforming, Wind Waker vs. Skyward Sword (and other Zeldas), the PS1 game ‘LSD’, as well as some great listener mail and a bit of news. This episode was way too long though. We’re working on that.
