Alden's Amazing Roblox Review
Summary: My son Alden likes Roblox (and gaming in general). In this podcast, I interview him on what he likes, doesn't like, and what he recommends everyone play (and avoid). Feel free to email us your suggestions for games: alden (at) aldengaming.com
I couldn’t peel away Alden from playing his Nintendo Switch with his friend from next door. So, here’s a quick 2 minute segment wishing you and yours a happy holiday.
It's Sunday morning, and we just finished eating the blueberry pancakes we made for brunch. While I'm cleaning up, I hear him yell "DAD I'M A BILLIONAIRE!!!", along with a lot of singing and chanting. I roll up with my computer, and we both end up recording our first impressions of Billionaire Simulator. In case you ever play this game in the future, remember... always get a store manager. Alden will be shouting this at you while you play, even when he's asleep at night.
We're taking it live again with Blox Adventures, a stylistic looking obby game where the breathtaking graphics are probably lost on my son. The thing he's fixated on is how to get down those darnfalnaggled fan shafts without breaking apart 30+ times. I tried those out too and was getting equally frustrated. So we do a relatively light overview of the game without too much depth. I will say that the shadow trail and trainer ball is infinitely annoying. Seriously, how can someone figure out where they're going in an obby when their path is obscured. Btw, that's Dad complaining. Alden's still trying to get past the air shaft.
Alden was seriously having issues paying attention to the podcast while playing "Work at a Pizza Place". It's probably the most edited version of the podcast to date. We're going to have to figure out how to get his attention so he doesn't zone into moving virtual boxes into pizza supply delivery trucks. There's always hope next episode.
We're back after a two week holiday break (that's the official version... truth is we taped a couple of shows but Alden wasn't into it). We're busting out with Slimulator, another variation of Bee Swarm, Pet Simulator, etc type of game. Alden will make sure you understand every person on the leaderboard in the game. In fact, he goes through literally everything he sees while playing the game (which seems to jog his memory better).
Alden and I are sick with seasonal colds. If you can make it through hearing sniffles, coughing and the grossness of wiping boogers on the couch, you'll enjoy this one.
Alden invited his friend Zoe onto the podcast and we ended up talking about her favorite game Minecraft. Yep, it's not a Roblox game, but the cute factor is off the charts on this short one. I type short, because it looks like I have a short in either a microphone, cable, or audio intake device. Going to have to investigate before our next episode. Enjoy this one in the meantime!
With a failed recording at hand, Alden and Daddy had to improvise to get this episode out the door. The end result was a recording session over vegetable soup, talking about Hide and Seek Extreme. We even recorded bonus footage of a fart beat. Yeah, we were being silly.
Since the first version of Flood Escape still has appeal AND gets a considerable amount of traffic to this day, Alden decided to feature it in another live podcast. He drifts a bit on this one, so his review will probably be a bit spacey. Enjoy!
We're experimenting with this episode and having Alden talk about Flood Escape 2 while he's playing it. He's a little distracted at times, but a lot more animated. This is also a fart-free episode, for once.
In this episode, Alden reviews one of the originals of Roblox gaming madness - Epic Minigames. We cover our favorite maps, how we work as a team, and more farting. Also, there's a secret that he doesn't want his mom to know about in this episode. Keep it between us, okay?
My son's heavy deep into Pet Simulator on Roblox. GravyCatman's to blame (partly), but he's been having a lot of fun with it. We talk about how Alden's been helping me out as a noob, and other aspects of the game he likes. Also, farts.
In our very first episode of Alden's Amazing Roblox Review, Daddy interviews Alden on Bee Swarm. The good, the bad, the informational. I might try to interview him during a game next time. :)
