GAMING: Little Big Planet, Spyro, Midnight Club and Guinness World Records

---

So this week was interesting. We decided to try to keep the podcast much shorter - a couple of minutes per game and only five games, but while that was a great intention, Jacob really started showing confidence in speaking and made some great comments during the podcast. As a result of that and us just being more relaxed, the original take ended up being 45 minutes long. I find it easy to listen to, but after twittering about it, we made the decision to re-record the podcast and try to keep it down.

This is the result of that second attempt - sub-20 minutes. Personally, I feel that we left out a lot of detail and felt a bit cramped, so we're now looking at doing even less games next time - maybe just one or two each episode. It's a toughy because while it's important to listen to your audience, I also don't want to hamper Jacob as he becomes more confident in speaking publicly, and I think his conversation flowed more naturally in the longer episode.

Anyhow, here are the timecodes and scores for this week's games:

  • 00:35 - Little Big Planet - SCORE 9.5
  • 04:35 - Guinness World Records: The Video Game - SCORE 8.5 (8 for adults)
