When you have a lot of stuff going on, what kind of games do you turn to? Paul and Kris manage to discuss Dragon’s Dogma, World of Warcraft and a handful of other titles before succumbing to the slog of family life and minor illness. But just when things are at their bleakest… a surprise call from Paul’s Dad sets things right. Well, not right, really. Just different. Things get rotated slightly.
You know the kind — free-to-play, but with a gambling, collect-em-all element that teases you with trading your real cash for in-game currency. Paul remembers David Bowie’s Omikron: The Nomad Soul, then tackles Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, and Kris distrusts all exploding party box visuals.
Plus we look at The Room series, Wheels of Aurelia, and announce our new Patreon! Check out the video:
Despite the title, we actually haven’t talked about this stuff before! Kris and Paul receive some lovely emails from listeners like you, and discuss remakes and reboots, as well as a couple of newer titles: Darkest Dungeon and Pony Island, both excellent games in their own right.
Plus, thoughts on Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture (which is not by the makers of SOMA as Kris mistakenly says in the podcast), Psychonauts 2, and a non-NDA-breaking whiff of an upcoming review of XCOM 2.
