Episode 9 - Local, Online, and Robots


It's our first listener submitted topic!

Local multiplayer vs online gaming. How can you navigate the pros and cons of both to help you build and maintain your relationships? Answer: Robots. After all, it's not the 90s anymore. The gaming industry as a whole is pumping out more online gaming experiences than ever before while games with local multiplayer offerings are far and few between. MasterWife and MasterJoe will be your trusty robot advisers with some neat tricks you can try the next time you set off to save the world with your (potential) friends.

BONUS: America, Robot Halloween, Buck Henry's Flea Market, Unrest in Mushroom Kingdom

RUNTIME: 50 minutes

EDIT: We said "Cave Story" but we meant "The Cave." Got our cave games mixed up.


Here's that puzzle MasterJoe mentioned from Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Grab a friend and try to figure it out! (It's really not that hard).


And don't worry guys, MasterWife has a robot head too and it's a million times cuter than MasterJoe's.
