A Jumps B Shoots had the opportunity to be one of the live streaming podcasts at Portland’s Stumptown Comic Festival 2012alongside veteran podcasts Dangerous Kids, Chronicles of the Nerd, Geek in the City, Going Last, Kaijucast, and Dawn Taylor Presents. It was also our first dive into the deep end of live radio broadcasts (thanks to Radio Stumptown)— it was interesting, and should give fans a rare look at the podcast sausage being made.

Come, listen to our attempts to stay on topic as we discuss the on-and-off again relationship that video games and comic books tend to have. What makes a good video game based on a comic property, and how does that process works? Also, the ever-talented pixel artist Paul Robertson is given an open invitation to be on AJBS, if only so we can yell at him about not making more video games.

Episode 6 – Grow Up, Guys

On this week’s episode, we welcome our special guest Tayo Stalnaker, fellow A Jumps B Shoots contributor and co-host of the Dangerous Kids podcast. On the docket is a discussion of tasteless gaming, from its earliest beginnings on the anything-went Atari 2600 to more modern examples of games that aren’t just in poor taste, but are just poorly-made games in general. This evolves into an examination of whether video games can be an effective medium in portraying mature subject matter, an issue that draws some interestingly devisive lines.

Episode 2 – Nerds We Long to Be

On this episode, our special guest Switch from the Dangerous Kids podcast joins the fray. We talk about how 2 Player Production’s coverage of Uncharted 3 is a breath of fresh air from the “Mountain Dew-swilling bro” culture the game industry usually associated with, followed by a discussion of Indie Game: the Movie and the importance of a strong indie presence in the industry. Topping it all off is an impromptu debate over the state of nerd culture in America, which brings up varying interpretations of what it means to be a nerd.
