Have you noticed things getting dark around here? Why are people swearing all the time? When did you start wearing eyeliner? Looks like we've just entered the gritty dimension. This week after a particularly grim and brooding Comic Con, we talk about the various times when game franchises have taken a turn for the dramatic. Remember when the Prince of Persia got really into nu metal? You know you do.

This just in! Hackers have broken into the mega-city of Inkopolis and illegally modified their Splattershot weapons to fire ludicrous volumes of ink! And just went we thought Nintendo had built an impenetrable squid-city.
This week on the EXP Podcast, we dive into the reasons for and ramifications of the sudden increase of Splatoon 2 hackers. Will this tarnish the Switch or is Nintendo capable of weathing this storm... Tune in and join the discussion!

The word is out: people are surprisingly obsessed with virtual trucking. How do we know this? Thanks to an inadvertent leak, Valve exposed data that gave us an unprecedented look at the player counts of games distributed via Steam. The hole has since been patched, but the data we have is fascinating and can be analyzed for a long time to come. This week we take a look at some of the surprises and get quantitative when it comes to figuring out what the damn kids are playing these days.

This week on the show, we discuss some of the recent games we've been playing, which includes some of the best games of 2018 so far. Journey with us to Jurassic World Evolution where we care and nurture dinosaurs, to the land of the Nintendo Switch where we play such games as Celeste, West of Loathing, and the soon-to-be-released Octopath Traveler. We also spend a bit of time with Minit, a game where your play sessions are only 60 seconds long.
It's a big batch of games this week. Join us!
