This is Gaming Couch, a time to talk about gaming. Video games, card games, board games, table top war games, you name it. Focusing mostly on games of old and up to the indie market of today I like to think about what makes a game a game and how it holds up to others of its kind. Rule #1: Never fix it in post. Rule #2: There are no rules. Comments, questions, episode ideas? Send an email to gamingcouchpodcast@gmail.com. Give a Tweet! @G_C_Podcast

Episode 72 of Gaming Couch! Giving an in depth look a Phoenix Point today! It is a good game. It really is. I am happy I bought it. There is better combat when compared to XCOM. There are factions and global relations. There is more management with your troops and equipment. It's all a big thumbs up from me. The negatives are really just nitpicks..…

Episode 71 of Gaming Couch and, hell why not, a new season! I'm honestly saying its a new season because I haven't done that in a while...maybe one day I'll had some structure to it......anyway. What is your take on DLC? Is it a good thing? Or some horrible cash grab? We have seen DLC used in many, many ways over the years. Some of it good and some…

Wooo Episode 70 of Gaming Couch! Just wanted to say 'woooo' because 70 is a big number. ANYWAY. I got Pokemone Sword so today's episode gets to stay pretty relevant! Go me! Overall......I'm split on the game. It feels like two different games at the same time. There are some REALLY, like REALLY, strong parts of the game that I love. And then there …

Episode 69 (nice) of Gaming Couch! I got to say. I'm VERY slow on some of the best games out there. I recently was blessed by finding the game Battle Chef Brigade made by Tinker Studios and published by Adult Swim Games. It does so many things well. You like puzzle match 3 games? Got it. You like Beat 'em ups? Got it. You like lite RPG elements wit…

Episode 68 of Gaming Couch! Here was an impromptu episode idea thanks to discord chats. When should a consumer be allowed to to refund/return a game they bought? Should it always be allowed? Or should there be a standard beyond 'I didn't like it'? As the consumer it is important we understand the game we are purchasing and as a developer it is impo…

Episode 67 of Gaming Couch! I must admit I had a bit of a funk these last two weeks. Very busy and stressful with work and traveling over the weekends. Last week I just didn't want to make an episode. I didn't have it in me and it wouldn't have been good quality. So I disappeared for a bit. Now I'm back and on schedule. This week I wanted to make a…

Episode 66 of Gaming Couch. I got into a weird funk this past week. It's nothing bad. This week I just want to take some to reflect, that's all. We all have a limited time we can spend on games. Sometimes the time spent isn't about getting the newest hit game. Sometimes its about dusting off the old consoles and going back to old reliable. Back to …

Episode 65 of Gaming Couch! My god....Wendy's you mad lads....what the hell is this? For those of you who don't know Wendy's, the fast food chain, decided to jump on the RPG wagon and released their own RPG game and adventure called Feast of Legends. No, it isn't a module or anything for DnD. It is it's own thing, with its own classes, rules, and c…

Episode 64 of Gaming Couch! OH BOY! I love me a game where I can control a gaint mech and blow everything up. It is so satisfying. This is why I am so happy that my friend showed me Lancer by Massif Press. A RPG that focuses on those big, wonderful machines that carry big guns and makes even bigger carnage. Though I haven't played it YET, I have ha…

Episode 63 of Gaming Couch! And not exaclty a happy one. Playing Phoenix Point and getting into Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0 recently got me thinking a bit. Games are a greatway to answer some really tough, hypothetical questions. What if a virus broke out that could kill all humans? What if I was forced to choose who to rescue during a zombie attack? We can …

Episode 62 of Gaming Couch! This first week of school hit me hard. I'm a little sleepy with this recording so bare with me. We at going to look at Phoenix Point, a game from some of the team behind XCOM. I got to say, it's like XCOM+. It takes some good stuff from XCOM and develops it further. I believe there are some things that need to be balance…

Episode 61 of Gaming Couch! Today, we look at PlatinumGames newest title Astral Chain. I gotta say, so far it is a great game. I am enjoying the combat mechanics of it greatly and even some of hte slower parts of investigating a crime scene are done well and build into the story nicely. Here are my thoughts on the game along side a break down of ho…

Episode 60 of Gaming Couch! And time for another list. Because lists are nice and organized. It's awhile since we've talked about Dungeons and Dragons. Recently I have been able to play a few more sessions, start up a new campaign, and even get Cyberpunk 2.0.2.0 in there also. I figured, at this point, why not talking about D&D again? A game about …

Episode 59 of Gaming Couch! Satisfactory is the name of the game and I could not think of a better pun. 10/10 would pun again. Satisfactory is a factory building sim from the team over at Coffee Stain Studios, who have worked on Goat Simulator, Sanctum 1 and 2, and Deep Rock Galactic. The game is currently in Early Access and can be picked up on Ep…

The long awaited (really 24 hours) part 2 of the Play NYC event this year! This is the recap and time is spent talking about all the different games I had a chance to play and interact with the devs. It was an amazing time. All the details are in the episode. Below will be links to websites/social medias to the various games/studios if I found them…

Part 1 of 2 covering Play NYC happening at the Metropolitan Pavilion this weekend hosted by Playcrafting! Hell of a day. For now I just want to cover some big stuff. No recaps of games (don't worry) or anything, just giving a big shoutout to Playcrafting and Decoy Games. I had the honor of participating in Decoy Games first ever Unleash Cup. It was…

Episode 56 of Gaming Couch! Despite what I said in episode 55 I actually spelled 'episode' currently the first time here! Progress and improvement! So here's the thing. In real life, people have different skill sets. Some are really good with computers others are excellent public speakers while some are really good with money and finances. However,…

Episode 55 of Gaming Couch! I swear everytime I go to write 'epsiode' at the start of the description I end up spelling it wrong somehow. The human mind is an amazing thing isn't it? We all love music. Whether it's just a few songs or a whole library of various genres everyone has their taste in those sweet beats and rythms. As video games have bec…

Episode 54 of Caming Couch! (Heads up, the walls in my apartment are a bit thin. So when my neighbor decided to take a shower when I was already deep in recording...yeah. If you hear a slight hiss/hum while I am talking that was it. I tried to talk a little louder to keep myself clear during that time). I am tired and going completely unscripted to…
  continue reading
 
Episode 53 of Gaming Couch! I got nothing else to say. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and OneShot are both amazing games and I just want my verbal words to take charge here and express everything. So no real description this week. Give a listen! Hope you are doing alright with this heat wave. My new best friend is my tower fan. Take care, Smartboy P.…

Episode 52 of Gaming Couch! This past week I got to experience I number of AWESOME games. Yes, I have had my fair share of CTR NItro Fueled and Super Mario Maker 2 but there was more. Some awesome board games have been added to my library. I already looked at Dice Forge and House of Danger last week but after that episode went up I got Stuffed Fabl…

Episoe 51 of Gaming Couch! First off, CTR NItro Fueled Grand Prix is awesome! Okay, got that out of the way.... I recently had the pleasure of picking up two different and very unique games to play at home. DIce Forge and House of Danger. Dice Forge is a competitive dice game were you simply need to score more points then everyone else by game end.…

Episode 50 yeah! *Insert air horns and confetti here*. Yup it is true. Episode 50 is here and we have broken our 1 year anniversary that I managed miss because I am an idiot. So let's call this our 1 year Anniversary elebration. Joys! Because of this wonderful event, and CTR Nitro Fueled being an absolute blast to play I thought it would be a great…

Episode 49 of Gaming Couch! Getting to 50. Yes. So I finally got a Nintendo Switch and decided to buy Cadence of Hyrule. And HO BOY, it's a game alright. There is a lot to talk about with this game. Both positives and negatives. We'll take the time to really dive into the game and pick it apart. It is both Crypt of the Necrodancer AND Legend of Zel…

Episode 48 of Gaming Couch. Getting closer and closer to episode 50. Facebook recently yelled at me saying activity on my page is low. Eh....i'll see about reviving it for episode 50 along with the Twitter account. I talk about SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech for a bit and there is some story spoils I talk about. Spoilers start at 20:15. Jump t…

Episode 47 of Gaming Couch. Getting close to 50! I'm exicted. Are you excited? Alright, let's talk about that title. Many games have violence for whatever reason. It could be just bloody messy fun, it could be hair raising and challenge, it could even be meaningful and harrowing. Whatever reason games with violence often have a bad guy that you jus…

Episode 46 of Gaming Couch! (And it feels good) I believe we are at a new Golden Age of gaming (or fastly approaching one). There are so many games on the market, both good and bad, which is great. Instead of a race for the newest and better hardware we're looking at what games we want to create instead. Indie developers are allowed to take big ris…

Episode 45 of Gaming Couch! Mods are cheat codes. Change my mind. That's not in a bad way. In fact it is great. We have a new way of playing and experiencing games in today's world. No longer are we limited to what whacky things the developers put into the game. Now, we are able to MAKE those whacky things happen and develop a community around it. …
  continue reading
 
Episode 44 of Gaming Couch! When is innovation bad? I think it is bad when it takes a forumla that works so well and just tears it apart and rebuilds in an attempt to be 'new' or 'creative'. Honestly, don't try to fix something that works. Instead, ADD to it. An innovative game that works takes a formula that works and just tweaks it slightly usual…

Every now and then the name 'TeaLeaf' pops back into my mind. Back in college I met this person called TeaLeaf on Xbox Live while playing Halo Reach. At the end of a match this message was sent to me from this player and it just had some really bad stuff in it. You ever get a message from someone that raises red flags about them, hinting suicide an…

Episode 43 of Gaming Couch on a great and happy Mother's Day! Real quick, I did take the first few minutes of this episode to talk about Detective Pikachu. Even though it isn't anything major, and I mostly talk about the opening, I still feel there is some big plot stuff that happens in those opening minutes so SPOILER WARNINGS TO YE. If you don't …
  continue reading
 
Episode 42 of Gaming Couch! Feeling good today. I bought some expensive LEGO train sets. Adulting is fun. Real quick, let's go back to an older episode and talk about difficulty. I swear, looking at posts and videos online, the easiest way to start a fight between two people is to mention the difficulty of a game. After that, things blow up and the…
  continue reading
 
Episode 41 of Gaming Couch! I'm still a stuffy in the nose. I can talk which is great you just might hear a few sniffles in the episode. Allergies are terrible. If you don't have allergies plus avoid them and don't get them, it's bad. For today's episode let's talk Minecraft. April 23rd gave us a great update to the game, version 1.14 Village and P…

Episode 40 of Gaming Couch! As always, thank you for listening. Risk The Rain. I mean, what are we risking? The rain itself? Or do we risk losing something by being in the rain? In fact, for a game called Risk The RAIN there is a big lack of rain in it. Enough with the bad jokes, onto the episode. I picked up Risk of Rain 2 the other day on a whim.…

Episode 39 of Gaming Couch! Enter the Gungeon is and always will be an amazing game for so many reasons. This week, I'm not going to go over what makes the game so great. Instead, I want to look at the final mark it left for us. The DLC/Content Patch/Whatever you want to call it. One last run through the Gungeon to finally put it to rest. The Devs …

Episode 38 of Gaming Couch! I got a little emotional with this one. So excess the 'bangs' you hear in the recording, that was me flailing my arms and accidentally hitting the mic. The reason I got emotional is the topic for today. Education in gaming. Or gaming for education. I'm not talking about games made to teach a certain skill or content. I'm…

Episode 37 of Gaming Couch! Let me take a stab at this whole Article 13 business. For those of you who don't know last Tuesday (March 26th) this big law was passed in Europe with this big concern called 'Article 13'. I want to take a minute to look at this and try my best to break it down and give my opinion on what this means for the internet as a…

Episode 36 og Gaming Couch! My voice keeps going spawning nonesense and other random opinions. Alright. Sekiro Shadows Die Twice came out on the 22nd. My opinion? Eh. I'm not saying its bad or medicore or anything. It just isn't for me. It's a personal thing as I believe I won't enjoy the game because of the setting and story, as well as the change…

Episode 35 of Gaming Couch! A shorter episode. Sorry to everyone. I just wanted to drop my thoughts after hearing about CTR getting a remaster (which is Crash Team Racing by the way), hearing about Halo Master Chief Collection getting some PC love, and some other thoughts. These aren't sequels, just cleaned up games. I know last week I dropped my h…

Epsidoe 34 of Gaming Couch! I'm still going strange talking to myself and into a microphone! I jest, but really, I'm happy with myself to keep this going and getting things uploaded. Anyway, wanted to take a step back today. I know we're in the 3rd month of the year and I am only now saying 'Hopes for 2019'. That's because I am seriously worried ri…

Episode 33 of Gaming Couch! So Jump Force is now a thing. And Decoy Games has gone onto releasing the Beta of Swimsanity! Luigi over at That Indie Studio is still cranking out The Last Hex for people. And Smash Bros continues to make waves (Sorry Swimsanity! had to give it to them). To summarize, a lot if happening with a bunch of different games. …

Episode 32 of Gaming Couch. Let's call this a new season..Season 5? Yeah sounds right. I want to get modern. I've always looked at the past in terms of games and what makes a good game. Now I want to see what the future holds and what newer, modern games have in store for us. Since I recently beat Hollow Knight and really enjoyed it, and we had an …

Episode 31 of Gaming Couch! I'm sorry in advance. It was a rough week at work and it reflects in this episode. Not the nicest in quality in terms of what I am capable of producing. The show must go on though, and I can think about what to do in the future to improve. Now, onto the show. Music is powerful, reallllllly powerful. We remember certain e…

Episode 30 of Gaming Couch! (Don't read the numbers they post. I have done updates and stuff so this isn't really episode '32'. Anyway...) Big old spoilers for Hollow Knight! I know the game has been out for a while. I just like to say it anyway. I have fallen in love with Hollow Knight. I finally got to playing it recently because I am a huge idio…

Episode 29 of Gaming Couch. I heard a man comment on something he read online about the gaming industry. This got me thinking about people and the things they create. I'll save all the details for the actual episode. I just want to let you all know something. You do you fam. If you want to make something take control of it and do it. Only you shoul…
  continue reading
 
Episode 28 of Gaming Couch. A lot of crazy things happen when playing/running a RPG game like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Star Wars, etc. The list goes on. I believe the most important part to all of these games, and what leads to crazy things happening, is how the players interact with the world. Obviously, it is up the Game Master to make the…

Episode 27 of Gaming Couch! First, a light read I want to share with everyone to warm the heart during this cold season. Just a famous actor sharing his love of DnD with some kids at a Children's Hopsital. Some good stuff. https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2019/01/08/Joe-Manganiello-Dungeons-and-Dragons-Childrens-Hospital-Pittsburgh/stories/…

Episode 26 of Gaming Couch. A little here and there of an idea that really comes to light at the end of the episode. I have discovered Kenshi recently. A survival, RPG, open world style game. Some cool elements to it but incredibly brutal. And Slay the Spire, with it's new final ending, really needs some Lady Luck to get through. Difficulty and Luc…
