Constantly Calibrating Podcast (Gaming & Geek Culture)

This week, we talk about the transition from videogames to movies, and what makes or breaks video game films.

 

Is it staying to close to the source material, or careening way far away from anything resembling the original concept (we are looking at you Mario Bros.)?

Is it possible to stay true to the heart of a game once it makes the transfer to film?


We ask and answer those questions, as well as geek out over Fallout 4 and Sony announcements. Tune in to get an earful of Constantly Calibrating!

This week, they guys have gotten their hands on the newest title from 343 Studios, and are giving it the onceover. 

 

They talk over the improvements since the last game, some new mechanics that have helped the gameplay, and how there is still room for improvement. And Brian is still an old man for not getting with the microtransactions program.

 

What are your thoughts on Halo 5? Did it live up to the hype?
