Embassy Exclusive 51: Memories and Memorabilia

Our hosts chat about excellent graphics, the skyrocketing games market, and childhood gaming setups on this particularly humorous episode.

There’s a good mix of light and heavy topics on this month’s show. Todd starts out with a discussion on the game collecting market, and games that might be out of reach for us due to pricing. Joe leads a chat about great uses of graphics and art design in games, and the hosts all have some very different takes on what that means. Lastly, Ed remembers the old TV setup he used to play games on as a kid, and invites the listeners to share their own childhood gaming rooms and how they influenced their gaming habits growing up. As a side note, please humor Ed as he begs us all to play Inscryption for a good five minutes at the start of the show. He’s really quite smitten with it.
