Alright everyone, this Monday we’re getting March Madness started early, as we begin the very first WDGR March Madness Tournament! See your favorite video game franchises go head to head in a battle of votes on Twitter! Who will outlast the other 63 franchises? Over the next few weeks we’ll find out!
64 video game franchises have been chosen and randomly split up into groups of 16. Will and Drew will have a live draft, choosing their favorites. Once they’ve been chosen, they’ll be seeded into a bracket, where they’ll be voted on Twitter. Voting will last for one week, and the game with the most votes will advance to the next round in the tournament.
Each week on the show, we’ll discuss the results and the upcoming matches, which will once again go out to Twitter for voting, until there is one Champion crowned.
Who will come out on top? Will Street Fighter defeat Super Mario? Will The Last of Us take out Uncharted?
Tune in live this Monday at 6:30pm ET to see how it all unfolds. Once the draft is complete, don’t forget to print out your own copy of the bracket and fill it out to play along. And, be sure to follow us on Twitter, @WDGRPodcast, to participate in voting!
I’m always a little late to the party when it comes to games, and the Hitman franchise is no exception. I am thoroughly enjoying my time with Hitman 2. The music definitely helps take things to the next level.
Niels Bye Nielsen brings his signature sound to the entire current Hitman trilogy of games. It’s a combination of symphonic and electronic that blends quite nicely with the universe, and gives the game a contemporary feel.
Greetings! #MusicMonday returns once again, this time, with a stunning piece from the masterful game that is Uncharted 4. “A Thief’s End” packs so much adventure, discovery, and exploration in its soaring orchestral theme. And what a theme this is! For all those that have played the Uncharted games, Nathan and his adventures are legendary, and this track encapsulates the Indiana Jones we all have inside of us. Buckle up for this one, you’re in for an epic ride.
I have a complicated relationship with Doom Eternal.
In Episode 079 of WDGRPodcast, I spoke at length about the game, and listeners may notice that I was constantly conflicted – for everything it did that I loved, it did something I hated. It’s this duality and confusion that frustrates me to this day.
When Doom Eternal is good, it is great. It is unspeakably amazing. You feel like a complete badass. You use the biggest guns. You throw the strongest punches. You jump the highest jumps. And Hell is so scared of you that they send every demon possible at you every chance they get.
When Doom Eternal is bad, it is infuriating. The word frustrating does not do it justice. The game made me so angry on so many occasions that by the end I was beating it out of spite. I wanted to literally say to the game “Fuck you!” just like the Doom Slayer says to every Imp he stomps on.
