Hello everyone, it’s been a little while since we’ve managed to get a regular post out. We hope you’ve been enjoying the podcasts that have been happening on a weekly basis however! If you haven’t listened to our latest episode you should go do that…right now. Or maybe after you’re done reading this, your choice.
Frantic and Grunt return for their last episode of 2015. In this episode they discuss Star Wars Episode 7 (spoiler free), Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami, more Halo 5 stuff, and their favorite games from 2015.
Frantic and Grunt come at you this week with a jam packed episode of video game goodness. Tune in for Fallout 4, Just Cause 3, Game Awards, gaming history, and even Pokemon!
Instead of writing articles, Frantic and Grunt bring you their third podcast where they talk about a few familiar topics and discuss the nature of DLC in video games.
Frantic and Grunt kick off their new podcast series by talking about one of the biggest releases to date on the Xbox One: Halo 5: Guardians.
Almost an exact month after Bungie releases The Taken King expansion for Destiny, they announce and implement micro-transactions into the game world. By now you already know how Frantic and I feel about micro-transactions in general; they work at earning some extra revenue for developers, but should be limited to cosmetic items only. Luckily the micro-transactions in Destiny are following this “golden rule” so far.
When Star Wars Battlefront 3 was announced I got extremely excited. Battlefront was one of the games I played non-stop during my childhood (among other games like Tony Hawk and Halo). Being developed by Dice many people assumed it would be Battlefield reskinned. Well the beta was released yesterday (October 8th) and I’d like to tell how my experience with it has gone so far.
Hello again loyal followers! Despite rumors that may or may not be circulating, Frantic and I actually are not dead. That thing called life has been getting in our way the past several weeks. However, we have been working on some stuff to bring you more articles on a regular basis and I think you’ll enjoy them. You can find Frantic and Luke posting all sorts of regular articles about Magic on our…well Magic portion of the site, go check it out!
I’m having a hard time coming up with the right way to type what I’m about to say because I realize the moment I step “out of line” in terms of wording I’ll be attacked. Nonetheless I’ll do my best but I figured I’d let you know this isn’t going to be your standard article that typically comes from Frantic Talks.
One of the numerous debates within the gaming world over recent years has been whether or not games can be considered art. Quite simply yes, games should be considered art just as much as society looks at paintings and classic literature as art. At the same time, we should not necessarily be comparing them to those forms of art either.
