Episode 7: Then I Get To Not Kill Myself

Phil FishIt’s our first episode with the new team, so come listen as we drop our new co-hosts Alex and Sarah into the deep end and see how well they podcast!

On this week’s episode we talk about the movement to stop pre-ordering games in 2015, and the perils of being an indie developer as illustrated by both Notch and Phil Fish. We also talk about Nintendo’s Amiibo shortages (and what Amiibos actually are for the uninitiated), and briefly discuss Majora’s Mask 3D and whether or not you should get a New 3DS specifically for the C-Stick in that game.

In addition to producing many different shorts and even spec pilots about videogames over the years, his favorite hobby is developing online games. After having some unexpected success with his indie MORPG NEStalgia, much of Ben’s free time is now spent running his very own gaming community.
