Welcome to our first .5 episode! For this special occasion, the wonderful folks over at Local No.12 have bestowed on us an advance copy of The Metagame—basically a card game that a think take of gaming folks dreamed up that works as a competitive debate to spur intellectual discussion about video games. (The video on their Kickstarter for their project explains it pretty well.) We were so excited about it we decided to publish a podcast outside of our normal schedule and get the good word out to support both Local No.12 as well as their great, original game. Special guest and friend of AJBS Jeff “Switch” Sorensen from the Dangerous Kids podcast joins us.
Please comment on who you think won these rounds:
Which game is a better way to spend 10 years?
Switch: Angry Birds
Matt: World of Warcraft
Which game requires more finesse?
Steve: Any Kinect game
After you’ve left a comment, don’t forget to check out Local No.12′s Kickstarter and support their game. They have already reached their goal, but the more funding they get, the better the game, the more copies made, and the longer it can be offered. Thanks!
UPDATE: The Kickstarter has ended. Local No.12 has raised more than double their goal! Thanks to everyone who supported this awesome game. We will be having quasi-regular games of Metagame with various guests on the show, so look forward to those.
