Side-Quest 48. And the Cup is Mine!

Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone! We’re heading in to award season, so we embrace it with discussion of the Game Awards and the Golden Globes. Hard to believe 2018 is really coming to an end.

As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play (or the new Podcasts app), or Spotify or head over to our episodes page for even more options.

The Game Awards announcements

Since our last side-quest was our special 100th episode, we have trouble remembering what we did the last two weeks as opposed to the last four weeks. Emma finally finished Celeste and gives it a high recommendation for anyone looking for something new to play. She also continues her lukewarm journey through Valkyria Chronicles 4, begins the fabled Dad of Boy, and dives into Supergiant’s new game: Hades.

Meanwhile, Madelyn strives for the 4th star in Best Tear Apart Your Family Game, Overcooked 2. Also, both her and Clickbait Boyfriend are journeying through Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.

Weather Report

Hype about Joker in Super Smash Bros

Champ McDude is having a lot of adventures, even though Madelyn hasn’t been the one doing them: that’s right, Joker is coming to Smash Bros. We talk about whether or not we’re considering buying the game now. 

We also cover the other highlights from the Game Awards, including Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, the Crash Team Racing remake (Madelyn’s still crying), and other fun new game announcements.

Off-Topic Corner

Golden Globe nominations include super hero movies

In keeping with the award theme, Golden Globe nominations also came out this week! We lament our inability to keep up with any of the nominated TV shows or movies. It is pretty cool that Black Panther is nominated: whether or not you liked it, it’s nice to see that superhero movies can get recognized for their accomplishments. Oh, and Into the Spiderverse too, still need to see that.

Traffic Report

Traffic is going to pick up in the next two weeks, but it’s just the standard, usual stuff for now. That means that there’s two new Split Screens and two new Clickbait Boyfriends to catch up on, so get to it!

Things to look forward to: TWEWY Play This!, a Final Remix retrospective blog, superlatives from 2018, Adventures of Noodletis, and more!

Question of the Fortnight

Categories at the Game Awards

With all these awards, were there any categories you felt were missing from the Game Awards? And we’re not talking about those ones that they gracelessly skipped over during the show. If you could add a category to the Game Awards, what would it be?

Enjoy the episode! If you want to know what we talked about on last week’s full episode, check out the blog for Episode 50 right here. Look forward to next week’s episode where we plan to discuss X-Men: Legends and A Way Out
