    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 179: Blue Waffle is Delicious

    Episode 179 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast has Blue Waffle in the title, and we suggest not googling that. With that disclaimer out of the way, this week we start things things off with jokes about spring, or the lack thereof. Carrie explains why Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher coming to Ghost Recon Wildlands in the latest update made her weepy. Once Carrie is done reminiscing, she talks in length about The Witness, a beautiful 3D puzzle game she has recently been playing on her Twitch stream.

    Mike Robles is back as a guest again. You might recognize his name as he has written a TON of new reviews for our site this year.

Oh, and Mike also humble brags about getting a lot of hands on time trying out Soul Caliber 6 at the Games Developers Conference (GDC) . Keep an eye out for that game later this year.

    They also chat about the Billy Mitchell controversy, people holding pop up raves in recently emptied Toys”R”Us buildings, the Blue Team’s waffles on Master Chef Jr. and so much more!

    “BEST WORST MOVIES” in March

    COMET TV is rolling out the red carpet for some of the best worst movies on planet Earth. They’re so bad… they’re awesome. Catch films like …

    Creature (1985)
    Gargoyles (1972)
    Jaws of Satan (1982)
    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Monster Dog (1984)
    Reptilicus (1962)
    The Milpitas Monster (1976)
    Vicious Lips (1986)

    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Cyberpunk might be all the rage right now, but Johnny Mnemonic was doing it before it was cool. Keanu Reeves stars as a data courier who traffics top secret information via an implant in his brain. Sounds cool, right? Not when that data ends up acting like a virus that could kill you dead if you don’t get the passwords in time.

    Reveal Trailer: Another Sight

    Pioneering Italian games developer Lunar Great Wall Studios revealed Another Sight, a surreal dreamscape fantasy game, set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2018.

     

    ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in 1899 towards the end of the Victoria era, in London. Built on heart, culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT brings to life our two leading characters: Kit, a refreshingly bold teenager, who loses her sight after the under-construction London Underground tunnel she was exploring collapses, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat – she meets in darkness. Together, they team up for an adventure through the unexpected, with Hodge an essential companion upon whom Kit will come to rely on.

    Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world both together and apart, using each of their unique talents to tackle environments and solve intriguing puzzles. Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society of the world’s greatest inventors and artistic minds such as Claude Monet, Jules Verne and other long-past cultural icons.

    Marco Ponte, CEO of Lunar Great Wall Studios said: “The world we’ve created for players to explore in Another Sight is so rich and engaging, filled with heart and discovery.” He continued, “We’re delighted to be showcasing Another Sight at GDC this year, and soon, we’ll be showcasing to the public. Another Sight represents our sentiments as a studio, that games should be emotive, with a unique and compelling experience born of cultural influences that provide different levels of meaning into the worlds we create.”

    KEY FEATURES

    EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.

    MASTERS OF THE PAST – Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.

    HIGHLY CREATIVE GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. The two central characters can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.

    About Lunar Great Wall Studios

With a wealth of experience, Lunar Great Wall Studios is already crafting a number of projects, the first of which is Another Sight, due to be unveiled at GDC 2018.
