Random post here, I just wanted to talk a little bit about my process and my personal favorite games to talk about. Due to my work and personal life, I usually have the most time on Saturday to research and record games so I tend to do about a week in bulk. Today, I actually did through Feb 3rd which is pretty awesome. That way, I just have to upload the new episodes each day and I have a buffer if I’m sick or my voice is terrible or whatever.
So, I’ve now got 15 episodes under my belt and honestly, I’m loving every second of it. I’ve got a database of games I go to, vgdb.io, that has a random game button so I learn about new games along with you guys. In fact, I’m finding my favorite games to talk about are games I’ve never heard of either. We have a couple of games coming up next week that I was hardly able to find any published information about whatsoever. One of them, I couldn’t even confirm who developed it! Worth noting that while that database has a huge list of names and cover art, I’ve literally never found actual written information on that database about what these games are.
Thanks to the magic of the internet, though, I’m able to do a lot of research myself. I really like finding information on games that nobody else has looked into before. One other game coming this week is a fishing game that had one user review on GameFAQs. That’s it. No other reviews, no gaming coverage whatsoever, no Wikipedia page, nothing. In fact, the Wikipedia page on the developer simply listing the game didn’t even have that information written correctly. They swapped the developer and the publisher.
So anyway, I’m pretty proud to be the first! First to take a look at the weird and bizarre world of games out there and I’m excited to share with you all what I find.
