A podcast about Journey, feat. Matt Pascual & Jens Dietrich

Hello fellow Giant Bombers,

There are few things I find more gratifying than sharing a game experience with others. This is why Journey, with its unique anonymous, silent multiplayer, is so far my favorite game this year. It is also why, last Saturday, I saw down with Matt Pascual for a friendly Skype chat to discuss our time with the game.

As is my custom, I recorded and edited said conversation. Now, I am sharing it with you fine folks. I would love to year some feedback and discussion from y’all.

Many thanks to Jostein Hakested and the fine folks at the Rad Crew podcast for hosting our little impromptu podcast. This would not be possible without them, and I couldn’t be happier to be associated with such fine duders.

A relative size comparison of game world maps - fascinating!

The venerable Shawn Elliot tweeted these comparison pictures today. I have no idea where they came from originally (probably Reddit?), but they're pretty darn amazing, IMHO. Since GiantBomb scales down images by default, here are the links to the original source: Large Video Game Worlds, Even Larger Video Game Worlds.

Even the mighty World of Warcraft is dwarfed by Just Cause 2's huge open world 
 Hard to believe how tiny Just Cause 2's world is compared to Fuel. Too bad Fuel is completely barren.
