Turtle Jump Podcast

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.
