Embassy Exclusive 56: Felines and Bottom Lines

Roguelike progression, the state of the games industry, and animal protagonists are the order of the day on this month’s show!

After a short hiatus, the EE boys are back with Ed’s wife Myla with some new hot topics to discuss! Joe leads a chat about what kinds of progression we like in our video games, be it earning powers along the way, or mastering powers your hero already has. Spurred by the news of Microsoft contemplating a purchase of Valve, Todd is concerned about the state of the video game industry. We all voice similar concerns and talk about the direction the industry could go in these trying times. Lastly, Myla’s been playing Little Kitty, Big City and loving it! She’s curious about what our favorite video game animals are, and we hear some fantastic responses from our listeners.
