Couch PODtatoes 20: Level Bashing

This is not, the greatest POdcast in the world… no, this is but a tribute. Couldn’t remember, the greatest podcast in the world.. no, this is but a tribute.


Well, we seem to be having a bad run with technical issues on this show. If it’s not me having sound and mic issues it’s the internet doing wacky things or this time the show not recording. This time we were blessed enough with both Murf and That Angry Dwarf for the show but unfortunately that one is lost to the ether now. It’s a shame that as we had an amazing discussion.

The topic for this week was levels and it wasn’t a very balanced discussion, just how much we dislike the current implementations. We talked about the different mechanics involved with levels as well as the areas of the game they encompass. I think it was unanimous, in both podcasts that the restrictive nature of levels needs to be lessened if not removed. That’s not to say there shouldn’t be gating but that it should be social in nature.There are a few elements we enjoy about levels and especially about getting that feeling of progression, I just feel like theri are better ways to approach that issue.

Anyway.. here it is soo ENJOY
