        Hey, We Should Make a Game

        In the first of a two-parter recorded before Christmas 2011, the usual cast is joined by TNL's own Cowdisease for a discussion about making and experiencing games. (There were a few sound problems with this one caused by relying on the back-up group recording as opposed to individual sound files.) Some of the topics we touch on:
        • What it's like to work as a game developer (Game Dev Story, anyone?)
        • The whole crew shares their experiences with designing games
        • Eric tries Jonathan's sense of accomplishment (objection!)
        • How an effective user interface (U.I.) is like an effective movie director
        • Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil: good and bad interfaces
        • An extended tangent on what works in Resident Evil titles
        • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Vanquish and other fast action games
        • The sexuality of Bayonetta
        • The beefcake of El Shaddai, Ghosts 'n' Goblins, and Gladiator
        • Nick is the only one that remembers Revengers of Vengeance
        • The sharp edges of Metal Gear Rising
        • Death Race, the infamous 1976 arcade game
        • The alternate universe of Find Mii 2
        • An El Shaddai review, plus is Chris on uppers?
        • What Monkey in Enslaved does differently from Nathan Drake in Uncharted
        • The escort dimension of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
        • A pack of wolves tears apart the Voltron game
        • (An Athena mention)
        • Mzo's not returning Zelda's calls this week because he's seeing Jade
        • Conspiracy, air hockey, and "flamboyant gay Hispanic" A.I. in Beyond Good & Evil
        • Nearly mind-numbing talk about Monster Hunter
        • The bamboo mini game in Skyward Sword
        • Capcom fighters should have a proper training mode
        • Trine 2 will light you on fire

          Is this the one where I rambled on about how awesome Bayonetta is? I was kind of drunk and that's all I remember happening.

          Rule 1: Don't let Mzo talk about Monster Hunter. He'll work that shit into every conversation he has if you let him, the trick is to ignore his Monster Hunter comments completely. Don't engage

          I'm making eye contact; it's gonna happen.

          I have so much to say.

          There's a certain line from Mzo's rant about bayonetta that I'm going to isolate and repeat and record. Because it's true.

          I liked when Chris said "I wanna get back on the little girl".
