Steven D Podcast Episode 15: Bob the Blind Man Gets a Taste of the Real World

Meet Blind Bob. Well, he prefers Bob, but we just won’t tell him that I called him that. 😀

In today’s episode, I play two games wherein our little friend Bob tries some rather interesting ways of getting around. First he takes a nice, not so peaceful little stroll through the world of Blinded Guide, a funny little game made by L-Works. Without so much as a cane or a guide dog, Blind Bob decides to first walk, then gradually speed up to a full on run, through a sidewalk littered with lethal obstacles. And I, equally blind, get the pleasure of guiding our adventurous little friend!

And then as if that wasn’t enough, Bobby decided to go and drive a car for whatever reason, and use it to plow down some cones. I’m sure you can guess that this is not the careless joyride he was looking for, but I doubt you can guess why. Let’s just say that the people in Oriol Gomez’s Danger on the wheel, really value their traffic cones – and knocking them down can and will have dire consequences.

Yeah. I bet you can already see what’s coming before even checking this episode out. Too bad Bob didn’t.

Steven D Podcast Episode 14: When it All Falls Down (bk3, part 3)

Ep 14

Let me tell you a story: there was once a mayor of a tiny little town under attack who said, “Find a safe place if you don’t want to die.”

And then, he died.

Listen to this rather amusing part 3 of my BK3 playthrough, as I complete the rest of stage 2 and most of stage 3.

Flying lamps? Oh yeah, plenty of those here.

What about bouncing desks that do damage by jumping up and landing on your head? Uh… yeah… those are here too for some reason.

Also, how can a swarm of bees drop glass light bulbs on to peoples’ heads? I guess that also begs the question, how many bees does it take to unscrew a light bulb?

Perhaps most amusing though are the security carts whose idea of stealth is to cut their engines so you can’t hear them — while you’re already attacking them. Apparently they didn’t get the memo that playing possum spares nobody from the tantrum throwing, lightening conjuring, shotgun blasting, evil psychotic maniac mayor aptly named King Godlord.

All of these can be found, and more, in this epic part of our adventure! As a bonus, something extremely amusing occurs that puts our “good hero” in his place. I just won’t say what it is or when it happens — you’ll have to listen to find out!

Steven D Podcast Episode 13: The Most Efficient Way to Settle an Argument

What happens when a bunch of pretty inexperienced players decide to jump on a death match style pvp fps and are handed a tona guns? Listen and find out! Oh and when you’re done, be sure to remind Lukenator that he is most definitely *not* the best player. He got owned. Seriously!

I think today’s takeaway is as follows: when it comes to causing the most destruction on the merciless march down the Road to Rage, I win the award. Or perhaps Alec. Too bad nobody will be around to award us. 😀

Steven D Podcast Episode 12: the Real Problem in Today’s Schools (BK3, part 2)

Ep 12

Today, I continue my lets play of BK3, started in episode 8 of the podcast. I complete stage 1 and move on to stage 2.

During this interesting part of my quest, I learn a few things: firstly, the abysmal conditions children face in schools. Seriously, I only graduated last year, but apparently we’ve devolved to… well not so friendly mascots and quite rude hall monitors. Second though is… the fact that indeed, nothing in this world is free, even that which is given to you.

As it turns out, both of these lessons were very painful to learn, but at least I survived. I can’t wait to continue this in part 3!

Steven D Podcast Episode 11: Watch Where You’re Going!

What happens when a blind guy hops on a motorcycle? No, I don’t mean to go for a quick little drive in a parking lot… I mean, gets tired of walking and the bus system and decides to drive to work.

The answer to that question is in this episode – this episode, where we learn not only why blind people are not permitted to drive, but also the consequences of getting knocked off a motorcycle going at really high speeds. I seriously did not know a human body could bounce so many times, or fly so far.

On the bright side, I got lots of money for doing that. It pays to waste your life doing stupid things. Also, if it’s any consolation… the last time I crashed, my body landed next to an ambulance or something… though I don’t know how much they truly could’ve done. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did!

Wanna try the game yourself?

That particular interface has been somewhat buggy in my experience, but that experience is also very little. Even still,

Steven D Podcast Episode 10: This is Why We Don’t Bring Fire Cannons to Birthday Parties

Clipping the microphone. Breaking the internet. Bursting bright blue birthday balloons and blazing blocks into oblivion. Sound fun? Join Baylee and I as we play a balloon popping mini game being worked on by Ivan Soto, because it’s bout to be my B day yall, and then Lazer breakout by the same guy who created Burger King ahem I mean BK 1, 2, and 3. Oh yeah, and watch what happens when I plug my computer in! It really doesn’t like that.

Links to games played

The following are the games I played. That balloon game thing is now released, so I’ll put it here as well.

Steven D Podcast Episode 9: Destruction Time! If You can Aim the damn Thing, Yukio.

Ep 9

In this episode, I begin by playing the mission mode of Marina Break, the breakout/pinball style game created by Yukio Nazawa, the same dude who created the BK series! And yes, I do spend like 3 minutes on two of the levels smacking the ball around – but it’s not because I can’t aim, it’s because Yukio the developer made it too hard. Yeah, that’s right. It’s not my fault at all! Ahem anyway, after that I demonstrate a Breakout concept of my own, and finally I end with a demonstration of the new voiceovers in Scramble! I hope you enjoy this Episode that lasted way longer than I thought it would!
