It’s been six months since we did a proper HAWPcast, and now we’re back talking about Thor 2 and Anita Sarkeesian and some other stuff.
So, yes. I don’t know why that exists, but it does.
Basically, we met a bunch of cool guys from Volition at PAX and E3 and geeked out at them every chance we could get. Anybody who follows our show knows we are big fans of the Saints Row games and their sense of humor. For. Example.
Then, at some point after we parted ways, some dudes at Volition thought it might be cool to do a Hey Ash pack. “We were talking about stuff we could do,” one of them told me, “and somebody suggested a Hey Ash pack and our producer turned around in his chair, deleted what we’d previously slated for December, and just said, ‘I typed it in the spreadsheet. We’re doing that now.’”
I have literally no idea why they would think this was a good idea, but we decided not to stop them.
Volition’s writers wrote all our dialog, and it’s really funny, and the “look out shorty, hit that dinosaur with your dildo laser” line from one of our episodes is actually in the game now and ahhhh nothing makes sense anymore

Here is a list of strategic thoughts I actually had while playing Redshirt:

Ash recieves a lucrative proposition.

In the finale to season four of Hey Ash Whatcha Playin, Ash finally faces off against the League of Girl Gamers and meets her ultimate enemy in the field of battle.
I’m really proud of these episodes, and I say that as someone who had almost nothing to do with them.

Castles in the Sky is a hug in videogame form. I had an enormous smile on my face and a warm feeling in my stomach upon completing it.
It’s also only $1.50. If you met someone on the street who told you, “I’ll give you a really really comforting hug and make you smile if you give me $1.50,” you’d probably…well I guess in all honesty you’d be like “ew no what” and that’s my fault for not thinking this metaphor through, but still. It’s cheap, sweet, and heartwarming.

I like it.
Saying too much else would be spoiling it.
So, I’d recommend that you just play it. I like it, and I think you will too. It’s on Steam now.
