The Nick to Dick Ratio (4Player Podcast #574)

Published by 4Player Podcast on Oct. 13, 2018

Between the contested release of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, our first Supporter Spotlight (KNCSito), and some fun/colorful questions from our Patrons, it's safe to say that this episode definitely goes places. Brad brings Wandersong to the table, a possible contender for feel-good game of the year, and Krispy went way back to the Gamecube days to finally play the horror classic Eternal Darkness! We also revisit the forgotten history between Microsoft and Obsidian in the wake of some surprising news!

    This is stupid but here it goes: I don't want to play Odyssey, not because I think I won't enjoy it, but because I don't want damage in the thousands and bosses who are sponges. I stopped playing AC after IV, and while I'd like to make time to go and play Unity, Rogue, and Syndicate, now it seems the time has passed. And with RDR2 coming, I cannot forsee myself having much time to jump into another open world game for some time.

    Nick mentioned how the he had come to view the episodic model negatively. Which is to some extent understandable with the hefty wait times people who play them sometimes have to endure.
    One this i appreciate about that model is that it paces games differently. Often when i play an ordinary singleplayer game unless i'm completely enthralled i am sometimes a bit too aware of the way the scope of games narrow towards the end.

    How much will it take for Nolan to keep his hat off for an entire podcast?
