TinyCast 29! Come hear your bros discuss Smash. Listen to your Tomodachi ruminate about Life. Join your pals in talking about… Ping? (the super successful DS chat app, not the failed iTunes music social network)
Luckily for Gunvolt's dignity and protection, Inti Creates is still covering his bare midriff for localization in the U.S.. Why did he ever have a bare midriff in his armor? Is he just really, really unconcerned about anyone shooting at his stomach? “Who would aim for the stomach,” he thinks, “when I've got this braid to target?”
TinyCast 28! Back at full strength, we spend a lot of time discussing Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, and other games we’re playing. You wouldn’t hear this discussion on any other podcast! It’d be weird for them to talk about the games we’re playing.
Seriously, though, I can’t imagine many other podcasts going in depth on the design of these two games like this episode does. Enjoy!
Let me start with a full disclosure: Brave Wave Productions is a Yamauchi level supporter of our Club Tiny Patreon. That’s not why I’m linking to this track, not exactly, but I wanted to be open about the relationship so you don’t think I’m trying to sneak some advertising in here.
Basically, it was only after Brave Wave pledged to our drive that I realized I could afford to check out their new album In Flux, which I’d wanted to do since its release last month. I listened to it yesterday, and it is so, so cool!
The standout track after my first listen is “Wish I Were You,” a collaboration between Sworcery composer Jim Guthrie and Silent Hill/Shadows of the Damned composer and guitar wizard Akira Yamaoka. I’ve embedded it here, and I’m just going to listen to it again.
