We kick off this episode with a discussion of canon and headcanon, and what it means to us as players! Paul revisits GTAV, Kris talks about the lovely new horror game SOMA, Paul talks new additions to Starbound, and Star Wars: Battlefront (the beta’s out!), when suddenly Paul’s dad is on the phone to discuss Broken Age, but he’s in the middle of a bridge. Then he’s carrying a ladder.
It — I — look, you just have to sort it for yourselves.
Composer and friend Austin Wintory (Journey, Banner Saga, Abzu, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate) joins us as he debuts his new 28 Plays Later theme (!), performed by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (!!) — then joins Kris and Paul for a boisterous discussion on scoring and composing for video games and movies.
Also discussed: being misquoted as clickbait, neuropsychology, floss, and the British infant river pollution epidemic (?). Listen in!
(for the curious — the stock music for the previous 25 episodes is “Green Screen” by Nicolas Major)
