Everyone's favorite cuddly firebreather is finally making his appearance on Still Loading. This episode dives into the first game in the Spyro serie, Spyro the Dragon. I'm joined by my good friend Chris (@britishbondaddict) to talk about Insomniac's landmark PS1 3D platformer. We discuss why this game was so important for sony, how it feels to control today and we debate over if the music is good (I may have some hot takes).

This episode has long been in the making.

Back in August I shared on social media that I finally was having my mom on the show, though I kept it vague as to what she was coming on to talk about. This episode is a bit hard to describe what it's about, but at it's core it is a very personal episode for me. I'm joined by my Mom, my friend CJ and my friend Jamie to talk about the various memories of gaming growing up. And while this isn't focused solely on memories of a games, console or genre; it is focused on memories of gaming with friends.... kinda.

In the episode I call it gaming in a social space, if that even makes sense. This episode is filled with stories of times when I would play games outside of the standard living room setup or the classic game night sleepover. It is about the times when video games were bigger than the worlds they inhabited on the TV.

This episode is about Rocking Chairs, Halo 2 and LAN Parties.
