The SML Podcast – What Happens After A Failed Kickstarter? And The Kinect-less Xbox One

By Joe Cammisa



Monday night is here and it's time for The SML Podcast Episode 66: It's Too Damn Hot in This Apartment here on Bleeding Cool!

This week on the show we are joined once again by Len Stuart of SWDTech Games, who is unfortunately here to talk about what happens next for SWDTech after their Kickstarter for Pixel Noir did not meet it's funding goals.

We discuss where SWDTech and the crew go from here, the upsides to a failed Kickstarter, and how this might be a positive in the end for the team and the future of Pixel Noir, which is not dead by any means. We move on to talk about what we're playing and then read an email from Len himself, about what he's playing. Redundancy!

Also, as the resident Xbox fan, I give my thoughts on Microsoft releasing a new Xbox One console bundle that doesn't include the Kinect. I talk about why it's a bad move and how it has pretty much killed any potential the Kinect ever had.

Check out the mp3 of the show here or check out the YouTube version!

Music this week starts off with a request from Len, which is Atarible Lie from Inverse Phase off of his Pretty Eight Machine album followed up by a trio of songs from Final Fantasy XIV because I'm kind of addicted to it and I don't even care.

Inverse Phase – Atarible Lie

Final Fantasy XIV – Easter

Final Fantasy XIV – Coerthas Central Highlands

Final Fantasy XIV – Fat Chocobo

Thanks for checking us out and we'll see you next Monday with a new episode!
