Video games + Role playing games

Playlist has been deleted. ID: ”hi”[/sonarr_audioplayer]

This is a pretty specific episode, so feel free to skip it if RPGs and video games aren’t your thing.

Alex and Rob have been thinking about playing Elite Dangerous (that space game we’ve mentioned several times) but with a role-playing twist where we stay in character and make decisions in the game based on our character’s motivation. We’re a little stuck on how to turn this very “blank canvas” type of online game into a role playing game however. So, we’ve called in the expert, none other than… Mike Rapin! Mike will also be joining our group in the game. Maybe we’ll document some more about how figure this out together… maybe a totally new podcast just for the game.

By the way, for other episodes featuring Mike, you can browse the Mike tag here.

Find Mike on the internet most likely under “mikerapin” and I’m easily found with “robrogan.” As usual, follow/tweet at us via @SorryTopic!

Games, weddings, and language with Mike Rapin

Rob and Mike talk about games from DnD to Mario, wedding planning, learning Japanese, and other random crap.

I grabbed the intro and outro music from this great playlist! (Visit the website if any of these YouTube links don’t appear in your app.)

I love Takashi’s advice and comments about making a good platformer level on Nintendo Minute:

Japanese: The Game on Kickstarter (I don’t think you can buy the game anymore).

A couple videos that Mike mentioned were:

SMM2 Competitive Gameplay

SMM2 levels from Twitter

Mike’s SSMM2 level:

L91-WSC-J6G

And you can watch Rob die trying it in this clip.

Rob’s SSMM2 level:

04W-3LD-DNF

Have fun typing those in >.<
