PB & Jason Issue 28: Loosely-Related-to-Valentine's-Day Edition

In this issue of the highly-collectable PB & Jason podcast, we see action, violence, and non-romance!

I talk about hunting in Cubivore, the ups, the downs, and what makes the game special. There's mention of hunting down the "Valenslimes Day" release of Dragon Quest VI, and a bit of talk about Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Of course, nearer the beginning there's a few bits of random news, this week, mostly dealing with Sony. Check it all out and enjoy this issue of PB & Jason!

Next issue, if I can recall, I'll be talking more about Cubivore. I completely forgot to mention ways I think a sequel could be a great thing, and ways the game could be even much better than the first.

That Dragon, Cancer Review

"That Dragon, Cancer," is a game about hope -- its presence, and its absence. While forged in the anticipation of triumph, the end result is a meditation on failure and loss that is pretty hard to take, and without a doubt breaks new ground for the interactive medium.

But while it takes on loss in a new way, it is also a commentary on games in general that is both surprising and profound. It is not without flaws, but the all-encompassing heart of it more than compensates for its failures.
