Warp World Podcast

Like Twitch but without the games… and video.

GrandPOOBear and Jaku are in high spirits after receiving the long awaited SNES Classic and compare this launch to Nintendo’s launch of the NES Classic of last year. They also mention the fact that Nintendo is trying to keep up with demand for the Switch by producing 2 million units each month.

For this week’s Hot Take, Poo and Jaku talk about whether difficulty games need to have an easy mode or if you need to be able to beat the game to enjoy the story. Should game developers find a way to be accessible to and playable by everyone? Or are some games just not meant for everyone?

Poo and Jaku welcome on Ben Bertoli, author of 101 Video Games to Play Before You Grow Up, to talk about the selection process for games to be included in the book, as well as how being an established freelance writer for sites such as Kotaku and Polygon affects his interactions with his sixth grade students.

Poo and Jaku answer a couple listener questions about world records and streaming.

    Zero Dawn has a story mode which is easier than easy mode, it’s for people who just want to experience the story only. I think that’s a good idea for games like dark souls. Personally I rather play the hardest difficulty but I understand some people don’t have the patience.
