Welcome to the first episode of Lost Saves, Kritiqal’s new podcast on games, politics, and the reasons we play! This week Xavier Sales, Liz Lane, and Rhiannon Williams join me – Nate Kiernan – to discuss our earliest gaming memories. Why we were drawn to games, casual-game criticism, and ways we can welcome more people into gaming.
- Killing Time at Lightspeed
- Social media sadness
- Why I’m the only person who likes Twitter
- Halo and the holidays
- Early gaming memories
- The “casual” stigma
- Xavier’s childhood Zelda LARP
- Pajama Sam is still the best
- Five Nights at Freddy’s and disability in games
