Levels Of Detail Podcast: Now With News Edition (12.03.10)

by Kasey Kagawa
Games and Gaming, News

My oh my, do we have an episode for you all tonight. Many interesting things happened between the last episode and tonight, so many that we had to push off some of the news until the weekend. Still, we have more than enough to satisfy your desires for the finest in low-fi gaming chatter. EA kicks Harmonix while they’re down, Sony tries and fails to one-up Microsoft’s Kinect sales announcement while Microsoft debuts a rewards program that’s equally unimpressive, Team Meat mocks PETA’s pitiful attempts to attention whore the Super Meat Boy release, another Japanese attempt at making a game for “Western” audiences looks like garbage, and the federal government botches their first DMCA copy-protection prosecution.

Oh, and if you’re looking for the video links I promised in the episode, the Mr. Minecraft video is here, and just because you deserve it, here’s a video of Tofu Boy in action. Remember, type “petaphile” into the character select screen, and not only will you get to participate in an awesome PETA troll, but you get a Steam achievement for doing so.

    I had an idea, that I talked about in IRC, for a game-like-thing where dancing actually made the music. You could save your creations and share them with people. You could set up your moves to control various types of instruments and trigger recording and replaying loops by body movements. So you could start out so that stomping would play the bass drum and make a loop with that, they play over that loop with your feet doing the snare drums. Or you could control the bass drum with right foot and the snare with your left foot. Raising your right hand might trigger a loop. Depending on how good the Kinect control is, you could even have various gestures trigger events.

    Come to think of this, I should totally patent troll this if no one else has.
