PixlTalk Episode 32, Side A: 2.0 Launch Special

This week brings a special edition of PixlTalk.

As you can plainly see, PixlBit 2.0 is now alive and well. To celebrate its launch, we went on podcasting overdrive last week, producing three distinct episodes, each of which feature different members from the PixlBit staff.

Today's episode features Nick and Chessa, introducing the plans for the week and recent staff hires, Jon "JD" Lewis and Joaquim Mira. Both Joaquim and JD introduce themselves, talking a bit about what made them into gamers and what they do here at the site. Shortly thereafter, Nick gives a rundown of the how and why of the site's 2.0 incarnation before heading into general gaming discussion.

E3 2011 is the main topic of discussion. What will we see? Is Project Cafe going to surprise launch either late this year or early next year? What do Microsoft and Sony have up their sleeve? Will the 3DS pick up steam? All of these topics and more are covered in the second half hour of the show.

Stay tuned throughout the week for the subsequent two episodes!

I definitely need a better microphone solution for podcasting.

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. Created by Brian Green and his company, Numinous Games ("numinous" means "having a strong religious or spiritual quality"), this "game" (we have no other word for it that's adequate) is both gut-wrenching and an incredibly simple exploration of a young boy's four year battle with cancer. 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.
