Game Over! Retry? Podcast: Episode 17 - Shoehorn Multiplayer!

I kick off another segment by casting a wide net over "multiplayer games"...

We’re once again joined by Jason Wilson, who shares his thoughts on the implementation of multiplayer modes in single player-focused games. Harold tells us about his educational trip to the Ontario Science Centre, Jon reminisces about how he used to be good at Virtua Fighter 2, and we talk about player perspective in multiplayer campaigns, how drop-in-drop-out multiplayer affects solo experiences, and separating multiplayer experiences from single player experiences.
Work’s been busy this week, so apologies for the lateness of this podcast, and also apologies for not listing all the games referenced this week. We’ll be back on track next week…hopefully.
Just a note for listeners in Southern Ontario who'd like to check out the GameOn 2.0 exhibit, it ends September 2nd, and I highly recommend it.
