Originally recorded on May 2, 2018
The DAC podcast crew is joined by a very special guest, Scott Gurney (aka 500_pts), multiplayer developer for New Blood Interactive, to talk about his work on the very-excellent DUSK, slumming it with 50 cent trash games on Steam, and the triumphant return of the old-school first person shooter. The boys chat a bit about what they've been playing lately, their personal histories with the FPS genre, and their deepest, darkest John Carmack fantasies. No, for real -- Chris makes Scott play a steamy FPS-themed dating game at the end of this episode, and things get a little... messy. Maybe skip past this part, Mr. Oshry? ;)
Topics include DUSK, Amid Evil, Wolfenstein 3D, B.J. Blazkowicz's sexual prowess, Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, the Build Engine, the cool baseball bat and dog powers from Rise of the Triad: Dark War, Catacomb Abyss, how much Lo Wang sucks, The Swords of Ditto, Darkest Dungeon, Nintendo Labo, Divinity: Original Sin, Mad Sector, Daikatana, John Romero's painted nails, John Carmack's cool brain, and Tommy's feet.
