For a change of pace, we spend the episode talking about one of the biggest games of last year, Fall GuyS: Ultimate Knockout!, which we've both been playing lately and think is… pretty fine. Let's be honest, it is not a masterpiece, but on the other hand we're both highly suspicious of people who feel they're too good for the game. While it may be …
 
Stepping away from our usual focus on particular games, we decided to spend the podcast talking about something much bigger: the Playstation 5. And by bigger, we of course mean in terms of size, as it's one beastly behemoth that looks weird and doesn't fit anywhere well, but Blake still managed to knab himself one despite their rarity. In our discu…
 
Are you into scary games with deeply drawn characters and surprising narrative turns that will keep you captivated for hours? If so, then you should avoid Paratopic like the plague, because the subject of this episode features absolutely none of that! Instead, we talk about what it does feature, which includes pretension, boredom, and a complete la…
 
Remember that scammy Nintendo compilation of 3D Mario platformers we talked about last episode? Well one of us went ahead and bought it, and you know what, that ended up being a pretty good choice despite the compilation still being a pretty shameless cash grab. Turns out the worst thing about Mario Galaxy was the Wii, and the best thing about it n…
 
We take a closer look at two games we haven't played all of… though there's a pretty good reason for that in both cases. First we shine the spotlight on Baldur's Gate 3, a game that's still in early access and looks more than likely to stay that way for at least a year. None of which is to say that it's anything but an excellent game, it's just unf…
 
Two years after we took a look at its progenitor, we dive into Spelunky 2, a game that's clawed its hooks deeply into our brains in the way that only a truly great title, or addictive narcotic substance, can. But don't go back to that first podcast—not just because it's bad, but also because we were completely wrong about our predictions for the se…
 
Proving once and for all we care more about playing interesting games than growing an audience, we took a look at the relatively obscure Moon: Remix RPG Adventure, more frequently known as Moon, and most frequently of all known as "What are you even talking about?" An influential Japanese game from 1997, the title took more than 20 years to get tra…
 
La Mulana—good game, or best game ever? That's the central question in this episode focused on the epic (yes, epic) Metroidvania puzzler, the name of which is apparently not Spanish for The Mulana, despite what everyone says. We discuss its place in the genre, as well as what makes it such a singular achievement, and along the way question whether …
 
Remember a few years ago when Inside was the hottest indie title on the market and critics hailed it as the best video game since… video games? Sadly, we do too. But now, with the benefit of hindsight and a general disdain towards empty pretentiousness, we go deep, umm, inside of Inside to ask whether the game warrants so much praise or whether it'…
 
We take a deep dive into Resident Evil 2: Remake, perhaps the finest remake of Resident Evil 2 to ever be released… at least, as of this recording. Blake gives us a rundown of the game's place in the series, or rather both places it occupies, and helps break apart what makes this new version so successful two decades after the original's release. S…
 
While Blake continues trekking through the Resident Evil series, or at least the good ones, Sean has finally finished Dark Souls 3 and is ready to discuss it at length. Being the cranky pair they are, both hosts agree that the game is good, but think there's something missing that keeps it from being one of From Software's top-tier releases. Want t…
 
While Sean is still stuck in Miyazaki-land with Dark Souls 3, Blake has ventured onward from Sekiro: Shadows Die An Undetermined Number of Times to begin Final Fantasy XII: That One You Probably Skipped. That's right, for once Blake is playing the older game, and to keep up with this opposite-world trope it's one Sean has actually played before. Wh…
 
Do you like Hidetaka Miyazaki games? Of course you do. Everyone likes Miyazaki's games, because not liking them is to not like games at all—or at least to have bad taste. In any case, both of us have been delving into his last real (i.e. non-VR) titles, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Dark Souls 3, and we take the incredibly controversial position t…
 
After a recording break of… well, longer than we care to think about, we’ve returned to the realm of podcasting just in time for the world to fall apart around us. Nice. Anyhow, for the first episode of our hopefully more-consistent second try at this whole podcasting business, we got down to business and spent most of our time catching up on the g…
 
It's the season of the witch, so we decided to focus our entire episode on scary video games, be they traditional horror titles or simply games that gave us chills. For help with this endeavor, we enlisted the service of horror connoisseur Kate Currie, one half of The Library Ladies' blog. Along the way, we touch on Left 4 Dead, P.T., Night in the …
 
What with all the talk (and a less-than-stunning trailer) of a sequel on the horizon, we decided to take on Spelunky and give it as close to a well-rounded discussion as we could manage. It's a game that has the honor of being both one of the greatest titles ever created, and also something neither of our hosts have been able to beat despite dozens…
 
Remember way back in 2017, when all anyone wanted to talk about with video games was how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the best Zelda ever, the best game ever, and quite possibly the best thing ever made? Well it's now a year and a half since BotW dropped, so we felt it was about time to take stock of the title with a more nuanced, da…
 
In the first of our podcasts focused on a single game, we decided to outdo ourselves and actually cover three games instead: the entire Mass Effect Trilogy. That's right, we go all the way from the first game, with its terrible-yet-for-some-reason-beloved-by-Blake Mako controls, to the second game, filled with more crew members and relationships th…
 
Well another year's E3 has come and gone, and the future looks bright indeed. With that in mind, in the latest podcast episode we focus on the games that have us the most excited, and discuss how the show seems to be growing up and moving away from its smoke and mirrors of vaporware and empty surprises. All of which is to say that we spend a lot of…
 
The training wheels are off as we move onto our "first" episode of the podcast. While we briefly touch on some of the games we've been playing and news from the last couple weeks, we largely focus—in our own meandering way—on E3. With no insider knowledge to speak of, we use our memory of the E3's of yore to make semi-educated predictions about wha…
 
This is the very first episode of the Exposition Break Podcast!Blake and Sean sit down to talk about Rage 2, Star Fox racer rumors, a 60fps Blight Town in Dark Souls Remastered, the new God of War, Star Fox Guard, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.Then, Sean wildly misses the dates for E3 and Blake fails to fact check him.
