BRB UK 133: Dog and Barrel

We are down and ready to get crunk, or words to that effect. Once again we are without the posh one here at team BRB UK, so that means that once again we have brought a guest to roam around the halls of Barrel Manor in Dan’s place and in terms of top guests you could grab for a podcast… you can get much better than this guy. In the past he has worked for IGN and Chair Entertainment but more importantly he’s currently the powerhouse behind the fabulous board game dedicated website Dog and Thimble, prep your ears for Hilary Goldstein.

So sit back and listen in as the guys discuss:

  • Working for one of the biggest entertainment sites in the world
  • Jumping over to Chair
  • Dog and Thimble origins
  • Guitar Hero prepares to return
  • Super shiney gold Amiibo action
  • We look at EGX Rezzed’s lineup
  • Evolve
  • The Order: 1886

    Thanks for the episode guys, and for securing another really interesting guest! Hadn’t realised Mr Hilary was still podcasting, and it’s board games so even better; will go check that out for sure.

    It’s almost a shame Guitar Hero got confirmed before Rock Band, way to steal the thunder :/ Always seemed like GH was more focused on being a game, and RB was more focused on pretending to play an instrument. No contest there! happy

    And cheers for the shoutoutthumbI am, basically, just a really dedicated BRB groupie tongue

    Yeah I always found that Guitar Hero games started to feel like a studio leaning on “well this is a pretend guitar game and that’s it, better start ramping up the fantastical effects to take the focus away.” Whereas with Rock Band it felt like they started working towards a goal of making it as an immersive experience as they could.

    Basically, Harmonix yay… Activistion boo.

    You can take my old spot as the official stalker to the BRB UK podcast team if you like?

    I agree there but as soon as Rock Band finally launched in the UK, I was happy enough to leave it alone. I’d be tempted to go back and stream it if the music wouldn’t get me in trouble. Maybe if I mute the sound and run commentary? hmmm

    Not sure, stalker is a bit of a negative word. But I do love your new curtains thumb
