#21 Erika Vale

My Rule is as many controllers as possible.

This week we welcome Erika Vale to the podcast, host of Bristol Video Games Social. Erika tells us what it’s like to host a regular gaming-centric event, the paradox of having social anxiety and being a confident host, and what providing such a social space means to her.

Also we talk Game Gear and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon’s Trap, weird and wonderful platformers, JRPGs as comfort food, world design within Soulsborne titles, the strong personality of Vib Ribbon and Gitaroo Man, and the part that Final Fantasy XIV played in Erika’s transition.
