After a hiatus, we’re back with Ontological Geek podcasts again. This time, we (Aaron Gotzon and Oscar Strik) had former editor-in-chief Bill Coberly and Amsel von Spreckelsen as guests, and our main topic is bodies as a locus of morality in games, particularly sections where control is taken away from bodies and they are destroyed in a spectacle, which at the same time is the outcome of a moral judgment, such as at the end of a duel, like in Mortal Kombat‘s ‘finish him/her’ sections. Besides that, we talk about Darren Korb‘s music in Bastion and Transistor, and a variety of other games.
