  • Quanrian : Normally I wouldn't support a derivative but in this case it's actually far better.
  • Quanrian : If for whatever reason you've found yourself addicted to Flappy Bird... one of the most blandly designed games ever... at least check out Failing Bird, which improves on virtually every aspect of the latter.

The Veteran Gamers Episode 221 – Live From The M25!

Welcome to this weeks show.

This week it is Just Duke and The Daddy, but between them they have played Starbound, Edge of Space, Infamous Second Son, Goat Simulator, Terraria and Monument Valley.

The Daddy does the news this week but I’m not sure it is up to Chinny’s high standard that he sets every week. We also have a special guest drop in and say hello and a new feature called Mr, Mr and Mr!

We round out with social media stuff and emails.

Enjoy

Video Games and Moral Development

In February, a research report out of Canada’s Brock University suggested that some violent video games could thwart a healthy development of morality in young people. In the words of researcher Mirjana Bajovic :

Spending too much time within the virtual world of violence may prevent [gamers] from getting involved in different positive social experiences in real life, and in developing a positive sense of what is right and wrong.

Obviously the same could be said about many other media, and the devil (as always) is in the details: What games were played, and under what conditions, and by whom, and etc etc.

It’s tempting for us gaming addicts to dismiss reports like these, especially since reflective analyses like the book Grand Theft Childhood show that research of this type is often misinterpreted and made hysterical by parents and news outlets. But I think it’s necessary for us to look carefully at this study, for a couple of reasons.

Welcome to a special edition of the show where Duke and Big Bad Daddy finally get their fix of talking everything Skyrim.

They talk spoilers, side quests, comparisons to other games and everything in-between for your listening pleasure and there is a lot of game to get through.

Duke might stop talking about it now but he probably won’t!

Enjoy.

Dragonborn vs. Khaleesi

Check out this awesome video putting Skyrim into the Game of Thrones opening credits. (The Mother of Dragons would be horrified at the Nords’ cruelty toward cute lil’ Alduin.)

Dialectic Engagement in The Last of Us

I finally finished The Last of Us, and — as with The Walking Dead Season One — I’m kicking myself for having waited so long. I can’t really say anything about the game that hasn’t been said already, but rest assured that I’m eagerly anticipating the spoilercast discussion that Stu and Chinny have been waiting to have. (Thanks for your patience, guys!)

There is one thing I noticed that needs a mention. If someone else has covered it, I apologize for the repetition. It centers on the social dynamic of dialectic in the richest Hegelian sense, bounded by gender and class elements but not limited to strict sociological factors.
