And so Random Assault reached the end of their fabulous weekend at PAX East 2013. But as we all know, while the ride is fun, the clean up always takes the longest. So here we have the longest part of the special with more stories, more interviews, more of everything you came for from Cards Against Humanity, Dive Kick, Soda Drinker Pro, Gearbox, expensive shits and so much fucking more. Check it out and I hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we argued, exhausted and loathed bringing it to you.

We are exhausted now.

Just the Tip: Asura's Wrath Part 2

Asura's Wrath, or Anime: The Game, hooked us so much with its sheer insanity, we had to split this Just the Tip into two videos. Watch as David, Josh and Derek play a few chapters.

The POW Block Episode 118 - Soda Jerks

Dustin Triplett joins us and Mitch stops by for the first half of the episode. Unfortunately for Willy Fresh, Mitch and David derail everything and jabber on about Rock Band Blitz and Kingdom Hearts 3D. Dustin shares his experience with Guild Wars 2 and we end the episode with a spoilerific discussion of The Walking Dead.

The POW Block 117 - Mighty Morphologies

This week Willy Fresh joins us as our new regular host and we discuss everything that goes on in Josh's brain. David keeps jumping from game to game with no real goal or outcome. Willy hasn't played anything, but damn does he remember some Power Rangers.

The Dream Machine Review

The past few years have been incredible for a certain type of genre lovers. Point and click adventure games have made a beautiful resurgence and I have been in heaven. Now Cockroach Inc. has merged yet another thing I love with adventure games, claymation. The Dream Machine is a surreal and dark adventure through the world of dreams and every frame of it is painstakingly rendered in clay.

I’ve always been a fan of claymation. There’s something about its unique look that fascinates me regardless of how bad the actual final product is (Gumby). Yet, claymation is almost exclusively used to make content for children. The Dream Machine’s unique style is not only not made for children, but it is incredibly unsettling and almost off putting and works beautifully. Throughout the first three episodes, and I assume the yet to be released fourth and fifth, there is meant to be something dark and ominous looming and the art, most specifically the character design, helps create that sense of unease.
