This week Liore and Elly got together with Vajra to talk about two new games: Beyond: Two Souls and The Wolf Among Us. Generally both games got positive reviews from us, but they also inspired Elly to ask the ultimate question: but what is a game, anyway? Turns out we don’t really have an answer, but for most of us it would include interactive fiction. Also Elly and Vajra argue about whether quick time events are indeed the worst thing ever invented in games.
We wrapped up this week’s discussion with a look at one of the Talk Back topics from the Newbie Blogger Initiative: Guilds! Huh, good god y’all, what are they good for? Absolutely nothing? (Sorry.) We wonder if guilds still have a place in MMOs in the world of social media and forums, and turn out to have almost completely opposite opinions on what a guild can bring to the table. Then Liore shouts for a bit about why both guild leaders and guild seekers should do some research.
Also, WoW Auction House shenanigans! Elly kicks virtual balls in FIFA! Liore hates pumpkin spice!
