This week on Random Assault, Matt attempts to bring up #GamerGate, but is swiftly thwarted. So instead he talks about how he thinks Breaking Bad is a terrible, terrible show. Then he talks about watching that show that Mitch won't shut the fuck up about. And then we read another fan-fiction dedicated to Matt. Actually, it's a very Matt-oriented episode. Prepare to get depressed.

Sombrero: Nick Robalik of Pixelmetal Interview at the Boston Festival of Indie Games 2014

Random Assault met up with one of the coolest developers at the Boston Festival of Indie Games in Nick Robalik. He was there to promote a new game by his studio Pixelmetal called Sombrero. Sombrero is n arena, deathmatch style game where killing is second and lott is first. Killing enemies only hinder their ability to collect more loot and capture checkpoints to increase their loot mulitplier. Things get pretty intense pretty fast.

Games aside, the interview dug up some pretty interesting points about Nick himself. Turns out, he's as outspoken and unabashed as us and is equally as sick of hearing about all the problems with gaming undustry and isn't afraid to voice his opinions. Having received a wide brunt of attacks related to the #GamersGate bullshit himself via Twitter, it's understandable why he feels the way he does. But it's the honest, candid and humorous opinions he's displays at solidify how cool he truly is. BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! Play Sombrero. BIAS! BIAS! BIAS! BIAS!

Trevor Stricker Interview: Jungle Rumble at the Boston Festival of Indie Games 2014

Sometimes, you have to take a break from all the games talk. Sometimes, you need stand back, take a look at your situation and make an ass out of yourself. Enter Trevor Stricker who is going to make that all possible. Veteran and friend to the show, Trevor was showing off the latest updates (not so much the latest VERSION of) Jungle Rumble. Very little is said about that, though. We've talked Jungle Rumble to death and so we take this interview spot to fuck around and laugh at ourselves and everything going on around us.Still check out Jungle Rumble, though.
