Christian Game Developers, Meaningful Interaction, And A New Hero

We were blessed and honored to have Jeff Simmons of Revelation Games on this episode to discuss their upcoming game, Rise of the King! We also got to talk to Jeff a bit about what it's like to work in the industry, some of the challenges within, and setting out on their own as an indie studio! But before that we talk about our time with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, Shovel Knight, and even make time for some newsy-news AND announce the winner of the Horizon Zero Dawn Photo Contest!

(Oh, and something about giving away a copy of Persona 5?? You'll have to listen to the episode to find out!)

Would you kindly listen to this episode?

It's been a long time coming but it is time to finally dive into the world of Rapture and discuss the classic that is: Bioshock! Before Bioshock, the guys discuss Logan being blessed with a Nintendo Switch which leads to talk of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Last week also saw Persona 5 finally releasing in the West and, yes, Logan goes crazy.

As always, these episodes focusing on a specific video game will contain spoilers during the Bioshock discussion at the warning of the hosts.

Rather than building a wall between the two, let's build a bridge.

"Keep your politics out of video games" is something we often hear, and maybe have even said. But is that the appropriate response? Join us this week as we discuss politics in games, why they are good, and how to approach them. We also review Digimon World: Next Order, discuss Playstation and Xbox's return policy for digital purchases, and more.

The Nintendo Switch has been fully revealed and despite us showing up to the party when it's over, we're here to share our thoughts and discuss the system. Before we get into that, we discuss games we've been playing such as Resident Evil 7, Dragon Quest Builders, and Titanfall 2's lack of support on Xbox One. We also talk about God's promises and Gospel presentations in fiction.
