Episode 7: An Intermission

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016 by Phil Savage

With Andy at EVE Fanfest, and the rest of the team on a post-deadline come down, nobody’s played anything new. Instead, Sam, Phil and Tom dig into their PC gaming origins – revealing the gaming obsessions of their formative years. What mystery flight sim hijinks first sparked Tom’s interest in games? Did Phil really endure Command & Conquer on a Playstation 1? How did a Mario game introduce Sam to the delights of PC gaming? All that, plus controversial opinions about Dragon Age 2.

This week: Samuel Roberts, Tom Senior, Phil Savage

Episode 6: Everybody’s Gone To The Pub

Monday, April 18th, 2016 by Phil Savage

It’s hard being a video game protagonist. Maybe you’ll run the rooftops of a pristine dystopia. Maybe you’ll unpick the mysteries of deepest, ruralist Shropshire. Maybe you’ll slog through a dungeon festooned with fiendish traps. Or maybe you’ll fight long into the abyss. And maybe the abyss also fights into you. Maybe there’s another option. Maybe there’s… the pub.

Discussed: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Dark Souls III, No Man’s Sky, Overwatch.

This week: Samuel Roberts, Phil Savage, Andy Kelly, Angus Morrison.

Take a left at the road of disappointment, past the TV actor with the inconsistent frame rate. Hang a right onto the bridge of disenchantment, stopping only to acknowledge the distant giant. Up the hill of chagrin you’ll see many a chef toiling through adversity. Pay them no heed, for you have reached your final destination: the Gazebo of Despair.

Discussed: Quantum Break, Dark Souls III, Overcooked, Scanner Sombre, Wrong Wire, Frozen Synapse 2, Tokyo 42, Enter The Gungeon, Seinfeld: Isolation.

Episode 4: The temerity to git gud

Monday, April 4th, 2016 by Phil Savage

Squawked from the gnarled beak of the ancient crow priest. Snarled from the dead lips of the demonic hell beast. Painted on the bow of your upgradable boat. Spoken from a door you’re still two hearts from opening. Echoed within the monotonous buzz of industrial power tools. It’s a taunt, no, an instruction: “git gud”.

Discussed: Hyper Light Drifter, DOOM, You Must Build A Boat, Stardew Valley, The Division, Steam shame, drilling.

This week: Samuel Roberts, Phil Savage, Andy Kelly, a drill.
