Real Mini: K and K in the Morning round 3

Kyle and Karrington give you dudes an update with what we are planning on reviewing and what we are playing. Some games we briefly discuss this episode are Dead Cells, Overcooked 2, and reviewed on our next big episode, Cosmic Star Heroine! After we chat about those games for a few minutes we go into a discussion on the split between Filip Miucine and IGN along with our thoughts on the entire situation! Make sure you check out our video version of this mini on our facebook page!

Real Dudes Ep. 45 There's No Way To Sleep!

This week Karrington reviews and discusses The Way Remasted on Nintendo Switch. This game brings up the questions of the meaning of life and what happens when we die. Did this game find the way into Karrington's heart or will it find itself a way out the door? Following that Cody dives into the tower defense game Sleep Tight by We Are Fuzzy. Is this the next sleeper hit for fans? or did Cody fall asleep while playing it? Find out how these games did and if you should check them out! After a brief break we try our best to answer the question "What is the most accurate gamer stereotype?" and this is a difficult one to answer. Especially since Cody and Karrington go way off topic and start talking D&D. How do the two topics intertwine? Let us know on twitter or facebook if you have the answer!

Real Dudes Ep 44. Towards Miles & Kilo

On RDP this week we tackle 2 incredible indie titles! The first game we talk about is the fun and cute adventure RPG Towards the Pantheon. Karrington gives us his thoughts and rating on this great game. Following that is the much anticipated Miles and Kilo. Kyle and Karrington go into a deep discussion about this sequel to Kid Tripp to talk about their experience playing the game!

After our short break we talk about some news related to the gaming and as well as the film industry. Finally we end the show on an off topic discussion which was inspired from our previous guest Patrick Hickey Jr. We debate over subject of “fanboys”. Can you call yourself a gamer if you are exclusive to one console? Are “die-core” gamers considered to be people that open to all platforms and just love games as a whole? What is die-core? Are people that exclusively play mobile games considered gamers? Check out the links to the games below!

Welcome All! To another great interview! This week we have Jan Serra from the indie studio Scarecrow Studios. They are currently working on their first game "3 minutes to midnight". Here all about Jan's journey to creating his own indie studio and his very first game! Jan and Karrington talk a lot about what we can expect from Scarecrow Studios! Dont believe us? This is what their website has to say, "independent multidisciplinary video game company specialized in creation of Point-and-Click 2D Adventure Games. The soul of our projects is a passionate team of dreamers and doers that do what they love and love what they do, and we think you will love it, too! And that’s not even a half of it. We are not a team because we work in the same company, we are a team because we respect, trust, and care for each other. Our view is that in order to succeed with this kind of games, technical and artistic creativity is the key." Listen in on this very exciting interview!
