The G*M*S Magazine Podcast Episode 100–Hype, Cows and Cthulhu Wars with Dr Reddy and Kara
After a bit too long to wait to record this episode, Dr Reddy, Kara and myself have managed to get together to record our 100th episode and we have a bit of everything for you.
Starting with our impressions of the UK Games Expo, we discuss what was about this new edition of the convention that we liked and what we didn’t, and what we think will happen in the future.
We talk for a few minutes about Unexploded Cows, a game by Cheapass Games. In that game, one sends cows to explode mines and make money, which in turns will help you get cities and thus win the game. It’s very weird!
And also we talk about Sentinels of the Multiverse, but not for review purposes, but to discuss if hype sometimes makes people have expectations that can’t be met, simply because games can very rarely live to the highest expectations we put in our minds. Is Sentinels one of those games? Did Unexploded Cows let my friend down (and it did!) because it wasn’t as good as he wanted it to be?
And lastly, what do you make of Cthulhu Wars? This new Kickstarter project is promising an awful lot and the photos certainly look amazing, but some people think there isn’t enough substance behind the campaign to warrant the price tag one has to pay to get their hands on this game.
And lastly we discuss what we’d like to do between now and the 200th episode of the podcast (which won’t take two and half years to come!), but we’re also interested in finding out what you, the listener, would like from us, so please do let us know!
As usual, your feedback is most appreciated, so please do feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you think!
Look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy the show!
