No High Scores

First of all, my apologies for not getting this up by at least yesterday. A Monday post wasn’t going to happen with the Abner Con wrap-up, plus the drive back to Indy. Yesterday? That just went by quick… and I lost $7 at poker. Considering it was a $10 buy-in, that’s awful. What is up with the universe?

Anyway, we have arrived at Episode #87 of Jumping the Shark. The countdown to 100 episodes begins soon! This week it’s just Brandon, Danielle, and I as Bill had some late-breaking lost key scenario that pulled him out at the last minute. Keys, man. Nothing but trouble. So, for this hour-long show Brandon and I spend a good chunk of time talking in more detail about Deus Ex (now that we’ve made some progress), Brandon adds some praise for Quarrel, and Danielle shows some love for Crazy Machines Elements and Rock of Ages. After that, the topic du jour is skill at playing games and why we’re better at them than you. (No, not really.)

Todd Brakke

Todd was born in Ann Arbor with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and proceeded to spend over 16 years as a development editor for Pearson Education, publishing books, videos, and digital learning products under the Que and Sams Publishing imprints. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd has also been a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets.

  1. It’s a viscous circle. You suck and playing games, and then you suck at the reviews your write about them, so when you do a podcast, you’re inevitably going to suck at that too.
