Built to Play 58: Dead and Dinosaurs

Built to Play explores the legal realities of games preservation, the utter nonsense around Metal Gear Solid V and why we love to feel vulnerable.

In this week's episode you'll hear from the following people:

  • Kendra Albert talks about how games are becoming increasingly online, and why that means they may not live forever. (00:10 - 11:50)
  • Daniel and Arman follow a NeoGaf forum to a Metal Gear conspiracy involving clones, head transplants and a would-be supervillain (11:50 - 28:00) 
  • Rommel Romero tells us about why Minority Media is working on a virtual reality game that asks you to study dinosaurs. (28:00 - 35:45)
  • We talk to the designers of Darkest Dungeon and Sunless Sea, alongside an English professor, about the appeal of the Gothic, and why more games don't give us full control. (35:45 - 55:50)

THANKS TO THE FREE MUSIC ARCHIVE FOR  "Algo Natural Rhythm" and "DARK MATTER" BY PODINGTON BEAR, "hey ragdoll" by Boyscout Discovery, "Eileen" by Lee Rosevere,  "Positive Space" by Cosmic Analog Ensemble, "Buildings Stay Afloat" by Augustus Bro Gallery Six and "Oxygen Garden" by Chris Zabriskie.
