Staring at Screens episode 22: Dee ARRRR Em

Staring at Screens sez:

Shiver me timbers! Avast, ye landlubbers — nope, I can’t do it. I can’t in good conscience do this hackneyed piratical voice.

Heeeeere I come to save the day! I mean, arr. To-day do be the release of Staring at Screens episode 22, and ye be risking coming face to face with Davy Jones hisself unless ye give it a listen.

This week: a king's ransom of gaming-related banter along with a roaring broadside full of piratey goodness! That is to say, our mateys at SAS have locked themselves in the fo'c'sle to yammer about that scalawag ye know as DRM. Hear ye:

In this week’s episode, Lisa talks about the first episode of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, the result of Feminist Frequency’s highly successful Kickstarter and that super-feel-good story about the father who hacked Donkey Kong so his daughter could play as Pauline; Vick is introduced to the excellent (and very jing jang) Uncharted 2; Dave does a bunch of collecting in the form of trinkets in Tomb Raider and ridiculous fish in Ridiculous Fishing; and Joel tries out the innovative platformer (of course it’s a platformer) Snapshot and reports a growing annoyance with SimCity.

RATION MY RUM IF YE DON'T LEND THEM YOUR EARS. RUN ALONG NOW.

...

It's quiet. Is he gone?
