In this episode, Silver Spook and Fitz discuss the possibility that reality is a simulation run by super-intelligent AI, the bogusness of IQ tests, surviving in the concrete jungle vs literal jungle, and embodied vs discorporate consciousness.

I just listened to the first one and liked it a lot. I especially enjoyed it when you talked about your respective backgrounds in Hawaii and Soviet-era Poland.

I will listen to some more soon. Have you thought of putting them up on iTunes or some other downloadable format. I want to be able to listen while I'm walking about with my phone in my pocket, and the YouTube app doesn't like that.

Thanks for checking it out, Stupot!

Sure, I will look into uploading the podcasts somewhere else like iTunes if folks might be interested in that. If anyone else has a suggestion, let me know also.  Would Soundcloud work?  I already have an account there.

In this episode, Silver Spook and Fitz discuss Ghost In The Shell, Bladerunner 2049, How not to make sci fi and comic book movies, and the really great ones of recent memory -- Deadpool, Logan, and District 9.

Regarding 2049, seems it's going to go the same way as the Johansson GitS film, A fun Sci-Fi in it's own regard but a pretty poor homage to the original, missing the core themes that made the source material so important.

I mean, in the second trailer alone there is a huge explosion, Gosling diving across the room to save Ford, a fast paced fist fight, flying car chase, a high speed car crash and one of those notorious 'I can shoot everyone in the room' jump cuts. Blade Runner was definitely NOT about action, it was a slow film soaked in dreary atmosphere, it was about exploring what it means to be human living on a planet that most have abandoned. I know it's a trailer, but considering Blade Runner had two 'action' scenes at most (if you can call them that) I don't think what we've seen in the trailer is a very good sign for this new instalment.

Besides, at which point did they say 'Hey, let's grade the whole film amber so it looks just like Deus Ex: HR! :-D

(p.s. still gonna watch it day one!)

I like to think of it as supporting the genre. If a film of this calibre does well in the box office, we will likely see more original work coming out of that genre, which is a good thing. I've had enough of super hero stories! ;)

I am also going to camp out at the theater in trenchcoat and mirrorshades and my wife will be in full Raccoon-like Pris make up.

Then, shortly after seeing it, break into full nerdrage on social media about how inauthentic and Hollywoodized it was. :D

If it at least brings *the original* Blade Runner high up on kids nowadays(tm) radar and primes younger audiences for games like Neofeud, then I am not going to complain too much about gratuitous explosions reflecting off Ryan Gosling's 8-pack abs.

Episode #7 - Technobabylon Creator James Dearden!

&feature=youtu.be

In this episode, Silver Spook tries not to flip out talking to James Dearden, the man behind Technobabylon, an amazing cyberpunk adventure game. James gives exciting news on Technobabylon 2 and his other projects, his take on Blade Runner 2049, cyberpunk generally, a future where flying cars exist only in Dubai, the dystopian / utopian potentialities of the internet, how he handled ethnicity, gender, orientation, etc. in Technobabylon, the State of Indie Games / Adventure Games, getting Technobabylon on VHS and Panasonic microwave.  Plus, Silver Spook and James express mutual love of Deus Ex, and why a game that is on par with the original cyberpunk FPS/RPG masterpiece will at last be made -- most likely by an indie studio.

Here's an audio file of the podcast if you just want the mp3.

In this episode, Silver Spook discusses the problem in the game industry of the norm of "crunch time" -- extreme, often unpaid overwork -- that causes physical and mental health problems, exploits workers financially, even causes divorces and children with absent parents, while executives continue to make millions or billions. What it is, why it happens, and some potential pathways to changing this damaging and exploitative practice.

In this episode, Silver Spook speaks with Mark Yohalem, writer of Primordia, a legendary sci-fi point-and-click adventure game and a big inspiration behind Neofeud.

Mark and yours truly discuss the State of Adventure Games which somewhat resembles that of Schrodinger's Cat (never quite alive or dead!), Primordia and the making thereof, Mark's exciting new 'mythological, mid-apocalypse RPG' in development with Wormwood Studios,  some insider game-dev shop-talk, Unity vs Adventure Game Studio pros and cons, Mark's and my favorite cyberpunk, the difference between depressing and melancholy, the psychological selling-points of post-apocalypses, why appellate lawyers may be cannibal shishkebabs in said apocalypse, and much more!

Silver Spook talks with Jonas Waever, the Chief Creative Officer of The Nameless Mod, the most epic and well-known Deus Ex total conversion mod of all time. Two veteran Deus Ex modders discuss why Deus Ex 1 still shows up in lists of "top 10 games ever", the historical context of the title, and what an indie cyberpunk FPS-RPG hybrid on par with Deus Ex 1 might look like. (Full disclosure: Silver Spook is currently working on an un-announced Deus Ex 1-like game.)

Other topics include a retrospective on The Nameless Mod by it's director, Terminus Machina (Silver Spook's Deus Ex total conversion), the nature of conspiracy in Deus Ex and how things have changed, takes on Blade Runner/BR 2049, Neuromancer versus Snow Crash, why single player narrative games aren't dead, and games industry shop-talk from two commercial indie game developers.

Japes and Christian (Silver Spook) also discuss:

-The difficulties and struggles of homeless populations and social decay in cities, which both developers dealt with first hand
-Game dev while Married With Children
-What it is like working with Keystone Games (Peahead Games' publisher)

Same. I almost exclusively listen to podcasts when I’m walking about or traveling to work, and YouTube on iPhone is a terrible combination for that. I’d be listening religiously if the audio was on iTunes or Spotify, but currently I’m behind by almost s many episodes as there have been recorded :-)

Topics include:
-Localhost and Aether Interactive's upcoming project, "Subserial Network"
-Techno-mysticism
-Whether an iPhone, the Philip K. Dick robot, or Alexa is conscious.
-Is the technological Singularity and subsequent superintelligent machines out salvation, doom, or something weirder?
-A psychoanalysis of why Elon Musk is launching Teslas into space as a form of mid-life crisis, and what that could mean for all sentient beings.
-What is love, what would the love of synthetic consciousnesses be like.
-What is to be done about billionaires, AI created by billionaires, and possibly billionaire AI?
-What is to be done about the impending electron revolt and socialist Valentine's Day.

In this podcast I'll be attempting to discuss some serious topics, including the suicides and deaths of some of my friends in the game and game development community. Many of my friends and colleagues in nerd, geek, and adjacent culture have been succumbing to depression, self-harm, contemplating suicide, or taking things out on others. This really breaks my heart, and this video is me trying to confront this tragic reality, deal with it myself, and perhaps help some of these guys out there who are in a bad place by sharing my story.

I'll be opening up about my experiences with bullying, isolation, and depression throughout school, being a virgin for 20+ years, feelings of inadequacy, hopelessness, lack purpose or direction. A lot of the things which a lot of younger men are dealing with now, and how I ultimately came to a better place, doing what I love (making video games I am passionate about, and are creatively fulfilling), with a woman whom I adore, raising two amazing kids, and have never been happier.

Remember, there is hope!
