CORRECTION AND TIMESTAMPS BELOW Today on Frame Trap, we're mixing it up! We've got two panelists instead of the usual three, but the conversations are spicier than ever. We discuss heavy hitters like Injustice 2 and Fire Emblem Echoes as well as smaller things like GNOG and Werewolves Within. For the HOTTAKE, we consider how important it is to consider games from a global perspective. Correction - I incorrectly said that Metal Slug 7 has fights where enemies take up both screens of the DS. This is completely false. In fact, Metal Slug 7 is largely a single-screen game so I'm not sure where I got this idea since I definitely have played through it. -Ben TIMESTAMPS 02:56 - What has Kyle been playing? 03:13 - GNOG 11:50 - Farpoint 18:16 - Werewolves Within 21:18 - StarBlood Arena 23:03 - Fire Emblem Echoes 49:13 - What Remains of Edith Finch 51:31 - Marvel Heroes Omega 59:38 - What has Huber been playing? 59:50 - Injustice 2 01:20:49 - Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 tutorial (Ben) 01:31:02 - Friday the 13th 01:45:04 - Caught in a Frame Trap: Who Said That?!? 01:53:21 - What has Ben been playing? 01:53:39 - Vanquish 02:02:19 - Twin Peaks season 3 02:08:37 - HOTTAKE: How important is a global understanding of games? 02:31:25 - Emails

Frame Trap - Episode 29 "What We Want Out of Video Game Stories"
03:39:44
CORRECTIONS AND TIMESTAMPS IN DESCRIPTION On today's Frame Trap, the panel ruminates about video game storytelling and states what they appreciate most about their favorite gaming narratives. We also spend plenty of time discussing games including Fire Emblem Echoes, Prey, What Remains of Edith Finch, and more! Corrections - Hey everyone. When I was listening back to the episode, I noticed I made a few errors when discussing my personal games during the "what we've been playing" segment. If there's anything I missed, don't hesitate to let me know. -Ben Fire Emblem Echoes - Mages CAN attack units in adjacent tiles in other Fire Emblem games and the impression I gave is that they don't or that it's abnormal. They don't in Fire Emblem Heroes which I've been playing a fair amount of recently and it's the thing that was probably tripping me up. It was a dumb error. Sorry about that. Cosmic Star Heroine - I thought I mentioned this in the episode, but just to be clear, characters can do a defensive action to "refresh" single-charge moves. So the water move that I mentioned can be used again as long as you refresh it first. Monster Hunter XX - With alchemy style, I said that it takes more time to reach a higher number of shakes, so for example the meter will fill more slowly between shakes two and three than shakes one and two. However, this is wrong. After timing it, it seems as though the meter fills up at the same rate. TIMESTAMPS (Now game specific!) 07:17 - What has Bloodworth been playing? 07:25 - Forza Horizon 3: Hot Wheels 16:05 - Little Nightmares 23:04 - What Remains of Edith Finch / Unfinished Swan 47:30 - Persona 5 01:06:23 - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 01:11:42 - What has Ian been playing? 01:11:45 - Heroes of the Storm 01:20:20 - Conarium 01:22:57 - Nier: Automata 01:37:23 - What has Huber been playing/watching? 01:37:27 - Prey 01:57:24 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 02:06:45 - What has Ben been playing? 02:07:08 - Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia 02:20:15 - Cosmic Star Heroine 02:31:57 - Monster Hunter XX 02:41:54 - HOTTAKE: What do we want out of our video game stories? 03:19:22 - Emails
