When you play games as long as we have, you’ve no doubt dealt with some disappointment along the way. Disappointment comes in many forms, but learning to deal with that disappointment is key if you want to enjoy the hobby over the long term and avoid being “that person” on the internetz giving games zeroes and boycotting the developer. In this episode, Aaron and Chris explore some of the more common scenarios where we experience disappointment as gamers and discuss how to deal with it. In the assignments segment, Chris recounts his time with Dead Cells, an interesting roguelike with metroidvania ties.
