This was a really fun episode. Lots of thoughts while I was walking to work listening.
Do y’all say “good answer” live every time or is that just a recorded snippet? Either way I always bust out laughing.
That bonkers bad music could be good, or even great if you’re trying to instill a sense of dread in the player. There’s something real weird about it and I’ve listened to it like 10 times. Maybe if it eventually dropped the discordant notes and leveled out like in “Layer Cake” from Persona 5 it could work. I’d like to hear the music shift to that creepy stuff when you’re getting close to danger in a game and level out when you’re in the clear.
The Bwong movie trailers are the worst. I pretty much don’t watch any movie trailers anymore at all. I stopped about 12 years ago, but I still get stuck with them in the theater. There’s something grotesque about how movie trailers are edited. Each one an almost exact duplicate of the previous, using as many techniques as possible to manipulate the audience. They scream “look at me! I’m that thing you’ve seen!” and I shun them, and avert my eyes, and live my best life instead.
I’m all for the Dune games. Let’s get a bunch of sandy planet games, but they are maybe just different enough that you don’t need any licensing. Coasting in a ship through the desert just chilling.
