This week, the guys give their two cents about video game formats. They discuss the pros and cons of both the digital and physical copies of video games, and other forms of media. We weigh in on the positive aspect regarding digital, and praise it for the space saving aspects, and the ability to download game from anywhere. We praise physical on it's visual aspects. We enjoy seeing the shelf of games, and they have a certain permanence to them. We then go over our PHAT goals for a long ass time, and have some heated debates.
Enjoy the show!!!
This week, we start off the episode reading a rebuttal to last weeks episode on Piracy. This rebuttal was submitted to the Clan via our website, from Intercept. We disagree with some of the rhetoric, but appreciate the rebuttal. It's all about the conversation!
We then move into the main event. Reviewing Diablo 1. We discuss each element of the game, from it's simplistic and satisfying story, to it's incredible gameplay. We move into the eerie, and quite effective design of Diablo's scenery and Satanic imagery. This, naturally, leads into the games sound and music. We felt like the music really cemented the overall dark, and brooding tone of the game. Last, but certainly not least, we discuss the games replay value.
Once the Diablo review is done, we move into PHAT. We discuss both our sucesses and failures of our show resolutions, and go into some detail about the films we watched for the week. Enjoy, and special thanks to Intercept for the rebuttal!

This week, the guys weigh in on their stances on the hot, and often divided, discussion of piration in gaming. We talk about the way piration damages the economy, and how if everyone were to do it, there would be no games. We delve into some statistics, proving the loss of revenue, and jobs that is caused as a result. We move on to discuss Joe and Kalebs progress in Diablo, and find out why Joe has to restart the whole game.
We move on to discuss our PHAT goals, and where we are thus far. Enjoy the episode!
This week, Kaleb Craig and Cameron have finished Fallout 4! We start things off with getting a little background on everyones Fallout experience. Joe was consumed by Fallout 3, wasting almost an entire day to it's glory. Kaleb Schweiss, on the other hand, was screwed out of too many hours, and abandoned ship. Kaleb Craig and Cameron have an extensive love of Fallout 3, and were the perfect candidates for reviewing Fallout 4. Once we have everyone's background, we move on to reactions to the announcement of Fallout 4. We discuss initial reactions, which of course varied. Kaleb and Cameron then do a rundown of the story in Fallout 4. They give us the gist, including epic spoilers at the end of the game, and compare it to the third Fallout. WE head on over to the most important function in a video game, it's gameplay. We discuss the ups and downs of Fallout 4's gameplay elements, and move on towards the design of the game. From an outsider perspective, Joe wasn't too impressed with this games visuals, but Kaleb and Cameron praised it in return, citing the unique character models as a move in the right direction. Fallout 4's soundtrack is a mixture of atmospheric music, and oldies tunes. This sets the mood for the game in a decent manner, but Cameron found the music overbearing during cut scenes, claiming that he couldn't hear dialogue at times. The guys then touch on the games replayability, which is stellar in their opinion. Overall, Nude Clan gives Fallout 4 an 80/100. Here's the breakdown.
