Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, we talk about Playdead's indie hit Limbo. In this title, players must guide a young boy through a creepy forest, a decayed urban environment, and a dangerous factory on a quest to find his lost sister. With a macabre asthetic, challenging puzzles, and solid platforming, Limbo is a little game of great value.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, we discuss some big Nintendo news: the New 3DS announcement, Mario Kart 8's awesome DLC, and Super Smash Bros.'s leaked (and possibly confirmed) roster. Is it too early for a new Nintendo handheld? And what's up with that name, anyway? Link and Animal Crossing Villager in Mario Kart? Sixteen new courses? Duck Hunt Dog in Smash? Lots of things. Many opinions. Such news. Wow.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, we talk about horror in video games. Whether it's the zombies of Resident Evil, the paranormal scares of Silent Hill, or scares manifest in other ways, the video game industry is no stranger to horror. Paul and Allen are notorious scaredy cats. We don't love horror, but perhaps we appreciate it? Find out here!

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode, the Turtle Jumpers take a break from video games and explain why they like--nay, LOVE--Dungeons & Dragons. D&D is the father of role-playing games. Using only pens, paper, dice, and imagination, you can embark on the most fantastic of quests. It's a story that YOU build, with combat, diplomacy, adventuring, and skillful challenges. Wizards of the Coast recently began unleashing the 5th edition of D&D on the world, and so now is the perfect time to jump in.

Welcome to Turtle Jump, the video game podcast of your heart and ours! We talk games, industry news, and in depth discussions of hot topics in gaming. In this episode we put on our speculation hats and rouse up some theories about how Nintendo might use amiibo, their new NFC-enabled figurine line set to launch in the fall. We know that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad, and many more titles will take advantage of the figures, and 3DS support will not be far behind. How else might Nintendo exploit the potential of this new product? We offer our thoughts on Pokemon, inter-game functionality, and more.

This week on TJ, the guys take you on the third and FINAL portion of our journey through a mystical land in this homemade D&D campaign, "The Hammer of Moradin." Dungeons and Dragons is one of the oldest games around, not to mention that it is considered the father of basically all RPG video games. There may be some more D&D content headed your way very soon. If you'd be interested in hearing some more campaigns and games by the two of us, let us know at...
