Checkpoint Intimates: The Single Player Conversation

Posted on November 3, 2018

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, Cameron and Jian join forces to dissect the condition of the single player game. In a world that seems to see a big pressure for multiplayer experiences can the single player game survive? What can they offer us that multiplayers games can’t? Jian breaks down his experience with DOTA 2 and multiplayer games and why he moved his attention to games he can enjoy alone. Cameron breaks down why he enjoys multiplayer experiences but still has plenty of time for solo experiences. Cameron also talks on why he believes the myth that there is a war on single player experiences is preposterous, like, calm down.

Cameron knows what he loves. Witches, animated ducks and a strong burly female protagonist. When he isn't effortlessly defending Dragon Age II he is bothering either his husband or one of his many fur children.
