DC Pizza Review: Potomac Pizza

So I just moved to the DC area for a great job opportunity and one of the most exciting things to come from all of this is I get to try a TON of new pizza places I’ve never had before. So let me just jump right in with Potomac Pizza:

IMG_6385

Crust: Outstanding hand-tossed style. I can’t put my finger on what it reminds me of

Sauce: Sweet, light, could use a bit more of it and a bit thicker.

Toppings: Very fresh, taste like they were all chopped up before I ordered.

Branding: Very small feel, though they have a little cartoon character illustration logo, their website feels dated. Not a bad thing, but it could all use an upgrade. Super nice on the phone however.

Overall 7/10 : Fantastic. A bit greasy, but that comes with my normal pepperoni habit.

 

Episode 10: Longing After IndieSpring Has Sprung

MetaVendetta Episode 10: Longing After IndieSpring Has Sprung

We made it through various delays, laziness, South by Southwest, obscure roadtrips, band practices and Titanfall – now it’s time to get our indiegame music on again. We have a full lineup this month, including Mitchell Mazurek joining us for his second MV. We’ve got some outstanding games and tunes to cover this month so please, lean back in your lazyboy and turn the volume up to eleven.

We also debut our first ever installment of “8bit Masterpiece Theater – Final Fantasy VII” part 1 of 478

Also, tell me someone that listens to this podcast understood the FurtherSeemsForever reference. I swear on my life there was a time that Chris Carabba didn’t suck.

Track Notes:

1. “Threes is the Bees Knees by Big Giant Circles from Threes!

I don’t think I’ve met a single person that hasn’t been obsessed with this game for at least a day or two. The aesthetic is simply adorable and clean. The music is reminiscent of Tetris, in that it keeps you in the moment. It does a good job to not stress you out either.

 

2. “World7bgm” by Note! from Simian.Interface

Simian.Interface is great for a few reasons. 1, the soundtrack is trippy and matches the offbeat style of the game. 2, it’s free. 3, I don’t know if I’ve ever played a puzzle game quite like this. It almost reminds me of those Riddler puzzles from Arkham Asylum – very cool. Editor’s Note: the soundtrack comes with a “paywhatyouwant” purchase of the game.

 

3. “Runaway Train” by Arne Horberg from Gunman Clive

A very cool take on spaghetti western for the very pretty Gunman Clive. I had a hard time playing this game on iOS, but now that it’s on PC, have at it!

 

4. “Myth-Born Dreams” by Connor Sherlock from The Rapture Is Here And You Will Be Forcibly Removed From Your Home”

What a pleasant surprise. Experimental first-person exploration gameplay. Mix in 3 separate narrators telling an erie Lovecraft audioplay and you’ve got a really cool…thing. I highly recommend giving this little game a whirl.

 

***A Dramatic Reading of Final Fantasy VII***

 

5. x-x-x-vmmmcmxi-2″ by Disasterpeace from The Floor is Jelly

Once again, the man who transcends this subgenre of music. Everyone pays attention when he releases something, and there is a reason for it. Disasterpeace delivers in spades with his work on The Floor is Jelly OST.

NOT INDIE #6. JibJig by David Wise from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest

Donovan Gentry’s favorite videogame track off all-time is this month’s non-indie song of the month – DKc2! You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out why.
