The Player 2 PixelCast 137

The Player 2 PixelCast 137

It’s a two-man show this week. But take heart, because it’s the finest two men as Tim and Hewso take to the recording chairs to ensure that the fortnightly podcast goodness remains delivered on time! Okay… so maybe only one of the finest men; it’s up to you, dear listener, to decide which as they talk about games like it’s the mid ’00s!

We’re still in a bit of a slow season, so we dug into a bag of topics and came up with asking ourselves about Metroidvania games in general. What, exactly, is the appeal? Have they actually been quietly infleuncing game design since the gaming stone age? Why have they exploded over the past decade or so? All of these questions will be semi-answered in this, the 137th episode of Player 2’s Pixelcast!
