Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone! This week’s episode is a good one to show any newcomers because we manage an actual introduction this time. We ruin it later but, hey, par for course.
As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Play (or the new Podcasts app), or Spotify or head over to our episodes page for even more options.
Both Madelyn and Clickbait Boyfriend are done with Birth by Sleep (even though his blogs may be a bit behind). Their lives have become empty. It’s chill. Emma, meanwhile, continues to be frustrated with Octopath Traveler, and its infuriating lack of interesting or cohesive storytelling. Fight me about it. With Assassin’s Creed and Hellblade coming up next time, we also have plans to return to those games soon.
Stormy skies have rushed over the IGN offices (wherever they are) as plagiarism accusations rain down upon their now ex-editor. The initial accusation came from the YouTube channel Boomstick Gaming. More and more followed. While IGN fired the editor in question, it remains to be seen how this will affect their image in the game journalism community.
Be jealous of our exotic travel plans. Madelyn and CBB take off to Rome while Emma packs up her life once more to return to college for her senior year. We talk a little bit about how the travel plans will affect the podcast (not at all) and the blog (a little bit) as well.
The blog remains hopping with the latest in our two biggest series: Split Screen and Clickbait Boyfriend. The latest Split Screen covers some fairytale vacations and some nightmare field trips. Meanwhile, CBB continues his way through Ventus’s story- sorry, Ven. Also, we see just how much crossover there is between True Detective fans and Kingdom Hearts fans. Let us know.
Coming up, we have a bit of a deviation from regular Split Screen, regularly scheduled CBB, an Octopath Traveler blog, an Octopath Traveler video, the Adventures of Noodletis and maybe more.
Question of the Fortnight
In celebration of The World Ends with You coming to the Switch (THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU PORT! THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU PORT! 2 PLAYER CO-OP!? YEAHHHH!!!!), we talk about what games we’d still like to see brought to the Switch. Listen to find out our thoughts, and let us know what you’re looking forward to seeing on the system. Or are you sick of ports? Because that’s a pretty valid position too.
Enjoy the episode! If you want to know what we talked about on last week’s full episode, check out the blog for Episode 43 right here. Look forward to next week’s episode where we plan to discuss Assassin’s Creed and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. This will be a doozy. Also remember to check out our YouTube channel for the Play This! series (new one coming this Thursday), Flashback Fridays, and Clickbait Boyfriend Behind-The-Scenes!
