I think Sony would make a killing. Great idea.
Sizzling brunette from the Twin Humanities podcasts.
Souls games. Tokusatsu. Coffee.

RE: Easy Allies Podcast - Official Discussion Thread
@Whoaness I was sad to see the Demon's Souls connections cut from Bloodborne, and wonder how many others were trimmed. Given that Dark Souls 3 carries so much fanservice from the first game, an interesting dichotomy in that regard.
On a From tip, i'm excited for what Yui Tanimura does next. I think the man's a genius, and Scholar Of The First Sin means the world to me.
RE: What is your favorite game and why?
Scholar Of The First Sin.
Became an incredibly personal game for me, with a story which continues to fascinate and ignite me, dancing back and forth with very real world stuff which became a huge part of the experience.
Beyond that, the fascinating development process - spotlighting the sheer genius of Yui Tanimura. A man who not only came onboard to rescue a broken game and get it shipped on time, but as solo director created some of Souls very finest levels as the Three Crowns Trilogy DLC. Still refusing to let the game go Tanimura continued with Scholar, remixing enemy placements, story, continuity, as well as introducing the character of the Scholar himself.
I continue to be utterly smitten with it.
But never forgetting the magnificence of Demon's Souls.
Still a terrifying enigma, with stunning design work and a world which pushes needles into me whenever I play it.
I've been here since importing the US Special Edition all those many moons ago, and I still can't quite get the measure of Miyazaki's first Souls game.
RE: What Podcasts (besides the obvious EZAP and Frame Trap) do you listen to?
Beyond Easy Allies/Frame Trap, 8-4 Play is always a fab - and near instant - listen.
Otherwise I veer between Chomp Chain, The Computer Game Show, Chat Very Good, VideoGamer, Don't Give Up Skeleton, Bonfireside Chat, Midnight Resistance.
I'm also involved in a few. Twin Humanities is a podcast covering the Souls games, with Oh-The-Humanities dancing off into games in general, coffee, telly, movies - all that kind of stuff :) [see link in signature if you fancy it]
RE: What makes a Great Game Trailer?
In the first instance, it came out of nowhere, so there was definitely a sense of the unknown as it played.
The way it worked on confusion, turned day to night, to rainy streets and the reveal of our hero - this time not a multi-billion dollar fighter jet of a soldier, but just a man.
The gorgeous jazz noir of Marty O'Donnell's score, veering into something very venerable and human, then bursting into gallant and suggesting such adventure with that daaa DAN DAAA at the end. brilliant.
RE: What was the Last Game that made you Cry Allies?
Boku no Natsu Yasumi
I'd not actually heard of Boku no Natsuyasumi - looks lovely!
