Frame Trap - Episode 29 "What We Want Out of Video Game Stories"

Podcast cover
Read more
CORRECTIONS AND TIMESTAMPS IN DESCRIPTION

On today's Frame Trap, the panel ruminates about video game storytelling and states what they appreciate most about their favorite gaming narratives. We also spend plenty of time discussing games including Fire Emblem Echoes, Prey, What Remains of Edith Finch, and more!

Corrections - Hey everyone. When I was listening back to the episode, I noticed I made a few errors when discussing my personal games during the "what we've been playing" segment. If there's anything I missed, don't hesitate to let me know. -Ben

Fire Emblem Echoes - Mages CAN attack units in adjacent tiles in other Fire Emblem games and the impression I gave is that they don't or that it's abnormal. They don't in Fire Emblem Heroes which I've been playing a fair amount of recently and it's the thing that was probably tripping me up. It was a dumb error. Sorry about that.

Cosmic Star Heroine - I thought I mentioned this in the episode, but just to be clear, characters can do a defensive action to "refresh" single-charge moves. So the water move that I mentioned can be used again as long as you refresh it first.

Monster Hunter XX - With alchemy style, I said that it takes more time to reach a higher number of shakes, so for example the meter will fill more slowly between shakes two and three than shakes one and two. However, this is wrong. After timing it, it seems as though the meter fills up at the same rate.
