Episode 239 of The Rich Dickman Show: Let's Go Cricket Team! It's Cody's Birthday Show and we didn't go all out. Cody runs the vacuum while Rem defends himself against Matt from NFHC. Cody is proud of Randy...for a second, and Randy has gifts - new bumpers! Randy mistakenly spells "shit" right, so we discuss making AI bots to carry on the podcast. McDonald's messes Alexa up, and we learn not to mess with Taylor Swift as we give AI a shot at the intro. Cody gets a Steam deck to play Half Life 2 while Randy tries to pass school uniforms as a prank; Rem messes with his son, and Stephen who hides a spider and makes people pee their pants! A math major needs help with an avocado problem - avocados are from Mexico - but Rem saves the segment without answering it. Take calculator 55378008 and turn it upside down; then solve this complicated problem about rats that has Cody being quite dickish for 20 minutes before Stephen addresses crypto situation & Epstein didn't Epstein himself (the literal devil does VO for our new bumper). Learn how keeping people dependent on you gives power & Matty watches cricket with money on line before Steve Irwin's Drop Bear Episode discussion ensues followed by Cocaine Bear talk & Pidgins carrying molley in NYC where Svenson weighs in with great comment before Cody gets gift while teaching Rem Buddhism to end the show.

Welcome to Encore our binge reading episode, where we chat to previous guests of the show about their latest releases. And today we're talking to Jillian Cantor about Beautiful Little Fools her re-imagining of an American classic from the viewpoint of the female characters. Hi there. I'm your host, Jenny Wheeler. Jillian last appeared on the show in July, 2021, talking about Half Life the Marie Curie story, the fictionalized story of the famous physicist who won the Nobel Peace Prize twice. You can find that in our backlist at the link below. Today's book, Beautiful Little Fools is rather different. It takes F Scott Fitzgerald's jazz age classic, The Great Gatsby and tells of the critical events in that story through the eyes of the three main women characters, Catherine, Daisy and Jordan.

Hello there, Jillian, and welcome to the show. It's great to have you back with us. Jillian Cantor: Hi, how are you? Introducing author Jillian Cantor Jenny Wheeler: I'm really good, thank you. Tell us, what's different about your book to the great classic Jillian Cantor: The original Great Gatsby takes place over one summer in this fictional part of Long Island and it's narrated by an outsider, Nick Carraway, who's distantly related to Daisy and becomes enamored with his neighbor, Jay Gatsby, over the summer. And my novel is narrated by the women who are in F Scott Fitzgerald's story, but don't really have much of a voice in it. So the things that Nick tells us about that summer often come up in my novel, but appear very differently from the women's points of view. And my novel also starts in 1917, about five years before the original Great Gatsby and then goes through the summer that The Great Gatsby takes place in. Jenny Wheeler: And by doing that, by adding those extra years, we also get a really clear idea of those women, Catherine, Daisy and Jordan, and how they might be interlinked and also how they are all in the net surrounding Gatsby himself. And that's a fun part of the story, to understand or to be given those interconnections. The women characters get their say Jillian Cantor: That was my fictionalizing, the story. In the original, the women are involved so much in the plot, the affairs and the murders and the parties and the glamor all revolves around the women, but in the original novel, they don't speak very much. We definitely don't know what they're thinking. My novel brings that all together and explores what that might have been. Jenny Wheeler: Run us through the process of how you got drawn into taking this on as your next book. What was the fascination for you in it?

To explore what it means to be human, Ben and Tao play with a pussy - a personified cat with an AI drone sidekick - while befriending wannabe artistic bipedal robots in feline post-apocalyptic, post-Homo sapiens adventure tale, Stray. It's not all highfalutin social commentary though, they do get to remote detonate mutant bacteria with a light gun strapped to their teeny weeny cat vests. Analysis includes discussion of dystopian storytelling and tropes, the role of animals in games, children's storybooks, whether art is a uniquely human venture, Tom Hanks, prison escapes in games, plus Ben shares why he's not fond of cats or domesticated animals in general. As usual, some major story spoilers towards the end of the pod. If you're going to play it, it's recommended you do so before listening.Content Warning: PEGI 12. Cursing. Animal cruelty. Egregious cockney accents.Clarifications:* All music for Stray was composed by Yann van der Cruyssen* The collective noun for cats is, apparently, a ‘Clowder'. Doesn't roll off my tongue either. The collective noun Ben used, ‘Posse', is ‘a group of people armed with legal authority', for instance, policemen.* The Road is a dystopian novel by Cormac McCarthy. There's nothing ‘basic' about it. Ben regrets the term!* The book Tao is clutching for is not ‘The Earth Remains', an entirely different and unrelated novel by Shelley Burchfield, but sci-fi classic, Earth Abides, a 1949 American post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by George R. Stewart. It tells the story of the fall of civilization from deadly disease and the emergence of a new culture with simpler tools.* Kurt Zouma's personal contact details are… not really going to be published here. That was a joke. Read the room, or alternatively, this article about his crimes against cats.* Here's details on the prevention of migraines using vitamin B2, riboflavin.* Machinarium was not from Annapurna Interactive, it was Amanita Design. It was released in 2009.* Tom Hank's new movie is called A Man Called Otto* Prison escape features in Fable 1 and 3, but it's also a story element in Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, The Witcher 2, Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Deus Ex, Dragon Age: Origins, Resistance 3, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and Dishonored to name just a few.Audio extracts:* Machinarium soundtrack by Tomas Dvorak* Prey* DePresno ft.

Welcome to Dev Game Club, where this week we continue our series on 2008's space survival horror game Dead Space. We talk about the fantasy of competence and the grounded elements of the tasks, and contrast that a little bit with the spells. Dev Game Club looks at classic video games and plays through them over several episodes, providing commentary. Sections played: A few more chapters Issues covered: a weird D&D one-shot, the player insert character, rebooting Space Quest, being in the right place at the right time, hitting all the tropes, set dressing to make a space feel lived-in, Tim makes an unintentional pun, diagetics around the map, committing to the level load, audio design, a sense of game development craft in earlier survival horror vs a more polished modern game, set pieces with slight difficulty spikes, learning the hard way that goop slows you down, a natural way to put timers in, perfect feedback, in space no one can hear you scream, everything coming together in one section, hearing the centrifuge in the outer hallway, the player recognizing his changes, paralleling the original mystery and narrative design, the hallway with the banging, changing the light levels as you pass into an area, delivering the space walk under constraints, teaching you that you can only go short distances, being deflating, landmarks and their lack, getting disoriented and having a moment of not knowing where to go, power nodes as keys to rooms, only soothing my OCD brain, designers liking the psychology of giving up a thing, unnecessary and manipulative friction, spells/Jedi powers, motivating the science fiction, "I slow the enemies down to make it easier to cut their limbs off," getting better at the player skills, a remote worker butcher, maybe breaking the game, echoing the monsters in the static of video communication, Drunk Souls. Games, people, and influences mentioned or discussed: Extra Life, Dungeons & Dragons, Child's Play, Half-Life (series), Star Wars, Liam Neeson, Space Quest, Alien (series), BioShock, Event Horizon, Mass Effect, Alien Isolation, Resident Evil, Republic Commando, Star Trek (obliquely), Lance Henriksen, Ian Holm, Nintendo Wii, Patrick Redding, Prey, Skyrim, God of War, Pipe Dream, Artimage, Dark Souls, Kirk Hamilton, Aaron Evers, Mark Garcia.

The Chronicles of Riddick, when it first released in 2004, was the definition of mediocre sci-fi schlock.  Riddick, played by Vin Diesel, came across as a generic edgelord, and it seemed to lean into special effects and spectacle over anything more substantial.  It's a direction that didn't play well with critics, nor with the fans of the previous entry, Pitch Black. So it was to everyone's surprise when a videogame set in this same world was released to widespread critical acclaim.  Vin Diesel, under his macho exterior, was secretly a bit of a geek, and was heavily involved in the development.  Critics praised just about every aspect of this short and tightly-made prison-escape, from the visuals, to the stealth, to the characterisation.But were those critics simply wowed by the glossiness of a cinematic FPS?  Are the individual gameplay mechanics in Riddick actually fun in their own right?  Or is this just another mid-2000's hybrid FPS game that is better off forgotten?On this episode, we discuss:Structure. To this day, Escape from Butcher Bay's non-conventional structure continues to impress modern audiences. Did it impress us? Stealth, shooting and investigation. Individually, these are sub-par. So what's Riddick's secret that brings these together into something special. Characterisation. Is Vin Diesel's beloved character simply a generic action hero, or is there more to him than meets the eye? As a prequel, does Butcher Bay limit Riddick's potential for development? Or does it set up Pitch Black's captivating final moments.We answer all these questions and more on the 97th episode of the Retro Spectives Podcast!—Intro Music: KieLoBot - Tanzen KOutro Music: Rockit Maxx - One point to anotherRiddick OST: Gustaf Grefburg—Is it worth watching the third Riddick movie, or is it just more of the same?  Are there any other obvious influences we forgot to mention outside of repeatedly calling out Half Life?  Is Dark Athena as bad as the reviews suggest?  Come let us know what you think on our community discord server!

In addition to the usual breakdown of the game's story and gameplay mechanics, the duo get into gaming loops, micro objectives and puzzles, corporate megalomania and mandatory agreement to terms and conditions, the role of banter and companionship in games, dystopian retro futurism, and if gaming companies should use unsigned musicians for their soundtracks to foster more variety and cultivate new talent.

A silent epidemic of chronic illnesses afflicts tens of millions of Americans: These are diseases that are poorly understood, frequently marginalized, and can go undiagnosed and unrecognized altogether. In her latest book – The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness – renowned writer Meghan O'Rourke delivers a revelatory investigation into this elusive category of “invisible” illness that encompasses autoimmune diseases, post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome, and now long COVID, synthesizing the personal and the universal to help all of us through this new frontier. O'Rourke is joined by ISB President Dr. Jim Heath, who has deeply studied long COVID and its similarities to other chronic illnesses, to discuss chronic diseases, how they've traditionally been understood and treated, and what the future holds. Meghan O'Rourke is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness and The Long Goodbye, as well as the poetry collections Sun In Days, Once, and Halflife. Her writing has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker, and The New York Times, and more. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Radcliffe Fellowship, and a Whiting Nonfiction Award, she resides in New Haven where she teaches at Yale University and is the editor of The Yale Review. Dr. Jim Heath is President and Professor at Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle. Heath also has the position of Professor of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at UCLA. Formerly, he directed the National Cancer Institute-funded NSB Cancer Center, was the Elizabeth W. Gilloon Professor of Chemistry at Caltech, and served as co-director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at UCLA until 2017.

Welcome to Dev Game Club, where this week we discuss Far Cry 2 with none other than Creative Director Clint Hocking. We talk about his early career before getting into the game proper. Dev Game Club looks at classic video games and plays through them over several episodes, providing commentary. Podcast breakdown: 0:43 Interview with Clint Hocking 1:07:12 Break 1:07:37 Outro Issues covered: starting out in writing, taking a terrible pay cut, good fortune, taking on many jobs, tough development cycles, making a perfect version of the first game, making the game in the last six months, reacquiring a brand, finding something fresh in the prototypes, open worlds and RPGs, taking new ground, fertile ground, "of course there's a game here," what you do when you don't have a corridor, playing on a harder difficulty, a world that's hostile wherever you go, forward pressure, enjoying playing your own game, making the better movie in the game than what's in your head, surfing the wave, the anecdote factory, playing at concert speed, the PC version vs the console versions, committing to the game, punctuating the sentence or the musical phrase, going all the way as developers, everything working together to create a physical bond that works towards just one or two moments in the game, holistic design, picking the place, reading up on colonial issues, not knowing if you'd make the game again, the exigencies of the medium, the difficulty of approaching some topics, a game that sparks different sorts of questions, bringing topics and concepts to an audience who might not encounter them, an actually mature game, the future creeds. Games, people, and influences mentioned or discussed: Splinter Cell (series), Assassin's Creed (series), Ubisoft, LucasArts, Valve, Amazon, Watch Dogs: Legion, Edge Magazine, Unreal Tournament, Crytek, Crysis, Prince of Persia, DOOM (1993), Castle Wolfenstein, GTA III, Morrowind, Oblivion, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, Battlefield 1942, Half-Life, John Romero, Resident Evil, Dead Rising, Tomb Raider, Alexandre Amancio, Black Hawk Down, Trespasser, Legend of Zelda (series), Dark Souls, Kirk Hamilton, Aaron Evers, Mark Garcia.

I know some of you want more PC love on the podcast. The problem is, I haven't played anything PC. I think we've literally covered every PC game I've played in my life on the show already. So if I play something new, bet your ass it's gonna get an episode of RTG. And our Patreons decided I should play Half Life last month, so here we are.   I didn't love playing with mouse & keyboard (in fact, I fucking hated it), but I sure liked this game. Even 20+ years later its release, I can see what a monumental, influential game this is. I really feel like it's one of those games every gamer should experience, and I'm glad I finally have. (The last 25% of the game sucks, though.)   My buddy Tyler is back this week, and we spent over an hour talking about Valve's game debut, and one of the most important first-person shooters ever made. Half Life is pretty dope, and it was worth going against my anti-PC heritage to experience.   And before we swing crowbars, I toss together another edition of the 'Remember The Game? Infamous Intro'!   This week, we talk about cloud gaming, and what role it could play in gaming in the future. Someone asks me to break down the new PS Plus tiers. And what does a game have to do to get me to buy it on multiple platforms?   Plus we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', too! This one features 3 of the greatest retro PC shooters ever: Duke Nukem 3D, DOOM, and Wolfenstein 3D.   Are you on social media? Of course you are. So follow us!    Twitter: @MemberTheGame Instagram: @MemberTheGame Twitch.tv/MemberTheGame   And if you want access to over 250 bonus podcasts, along with multiple new shows EVERY WEEK, consider showing us some love over at Patreon.

So...much...news! We had the Tokyo Game Show, a Nintendo Direct, a Sony State of Play, Ubisoft Forward, Capcom, Square Enix, and a ton more! Good friend of the show, Dravin, showed up this week to fill the Player 2 spot and help me sort through it all and somehow we made it. Also, I hear they caught the hacker that got Rockstar? We'll probably follow up in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned! And don't forget that next week's backlog will be all about Mystical Ninja starring Goemon and perhaps some bonus games? We'll see you then!

* Horror constructs! * Can be used when a full-blown Horror isn't appropriate to add flavor and mood to an adventure or location. * Black Mantis * Big, fast, nasty insect monster: Upper Journeyman challenge. * Has a little bit of a xenomorph vibe. * Bone Shambler * Undead construct, big ball of bones and spikes. * Slightly less tough than the black mantis but is still a fierce opponent. * Can overrun its opponents causing extra damage and knockdown. * Cadaver Man * Zombies… with an Earthdawn twist. High-Novice tier challenge. * Still retain some semblance of their personality. * FRENZY * Falsemen * Created by Therans as automatons * Strawmen and waxmen are low-powered, mindless cannon fodder in Parlainth's War Games. * Stonemen and Steelmen are tougher, officers and commanders. * They often have a basic personality. * Ghouls * Flesh-eating undead construct, feral pack animals. Mid-Novice tier challenge. * Damaging venom that goes inert if the ghoul is killed. * More powerful “leader” is presented in the GM Guide. * Sidebar about the “Cadaverous” mask to turn any creature into an undead/cadaver version. * Jehuthra * Giant spider-like construct created from a Namegiver. Low-Journeyman tier challenge. * Magical abilities: Frost Web binds a target. * Iron Web creates maze that divides a group of targets that the jehuthra will hunt down. * Cunning but not intelligent. * Plagues * Tall, gaunt humanoid that spreads disease. * Not physically imposing as an opponent, but it has illusion abilities that allow it to infiltrate or operate unnoticed while it spreads its disease. * Disease is slow-acting and contagious, could cause lots of problems even after being defeated. * Qural'lotectica * Amorphous blob of a body with hooked tentacles and drinks blood. * Ambush predator, moves slowly but has a paralytic venom. * Resembles barnacles from Half Life. * Spectral Dancer * Created from highly charming and charismatic individuals, cursed to have no ability to interact with the physical world. * Best way to deal with them is to soothe their torment by connecting with them, a social challenge. * Stormwraith * Horror corrupted air elemental * Aggressive, vicious, electrical attacks. * Difficult to damage with physical attacks. * Notable hazard for airships and air mining operations. * Cadaverous and corrupted masks to make Horrorspawn from other creatures.

Welcome to Dev Game Club, where this week we begin a new series on UbiSoft's 2008 series-establishing classic, Far Cry 2. We set it in its time, and talk a bit about shifting engine wars and attendant publisher/developer drama, before briefly getting into the tutorial. Dev Game Club looks at classic video games and plays through them over several episodes, providing commentary. Sections played: The Tutorial Issues covered: the UbiSoft open world formula, picking your UbiSoft ur-game, engine wars, branched engine work, getting into or out of the engine game, the open world first person shooter, a brief overview of Clint Hocking's career, games of 2008, grindhouse games, commitment to the first-person aesthetic, picking your character, setting their games in fictional countries, embracing African conflict, expositional value, setting up the chaotic situation, the diagetics of the game, mercenaries coming in, malarial effects, showing the systems, fire propagation, wishing they'd lean into the politics, disclaiming the team diversity to avoid political, having your cake and eating it too, tending to avoid modern realistic settings as players, the sales of the historical era, video game tourism, presenting variables, the diagetic map, the implicit simulated world and how the games get away from that, the onboarding, performance and enemy count and music, gatekeeping around what's a game, games where the interactivity shines through or justifies the choice to make it a game, putting clues together, simple choices that personalize, accretion effects, moments of calm, taking your decisions forward, being forced to the golden path.
