Checkpoint Intimates: The Character Creation Conversation

Posted on October 5, 2017

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week on the show, Elliot and Sav are here to discuss the idea of character creation in video games. This has been available in many titles for some time now, from RPGs to WWE, to dating simulators and more. Do you make yourself in a game or do you play as someone else? How long do you take to make a character? They talk about specific examples of character creators, the good ones, and other elements that tie in such as when a games difficulty can be impacted based on the kind of character you make!
