Digital Suffering #15 - Second Galaxy, Blasphemous & System Shock 3

9/17/2019
More
It's a packed show today so let's get started! Your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something kick things off with some first play impressions of new mobile releases 'Fist of the North Star: Legends Revive' and 'Second Galaxy' (which is also available on PC). One gets more thumbs up than the other... The second half of the show is more PC-centric, with the just-released Metroidvania-style 'Blasphemous', the been-out-for-a-while adventure-puzzler 'AI: The Somnium Files' and the...

Digital Suffering #14 - Din's Legacy

9/10/2019
More
We're all about the (mutated zombie) orcs this time around with your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something. Our carefully curated list of topics goes out of the window as we spend the entire episode discussing Phantom Limb's playthrough of the demo for the recently released 'Din's Legacy'. Listen through to discover such gems as: * It's like 'Diablo' meets 'Rad'. * The Minstrel gets no minstrel weapons or abilities(!?). * You become a passive monster (trust me, it'll make sense...

Digital Suffering #13 - Waking, Monkey King: Hero is Back & Oninaki

9/4/2019
More
Standby for a metric tonne of Kung-foolery with your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something! We talk about two forthcoming games, the dream-like 'Waking' and action-comedy of 'Monkey King: Hero is Back' and mull over our thoughts of the recently released 'Oninaki' as experienced through the demo. Having burned through the big releases we spend the rest of the show making astute observations of Nintendo's love of the gold coin. You won't want to miss it! Timecodes: 0:33 - Waking 7:28 -...

Digital Suffering #12 - Astellia Online, Lost Ember & Devil's Hunt

8/27/2019
More
It's podcast time! Your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something begin with the recent closed beta 2 test of 'Astellia Online' and what it revealed about how the game might turn out. The next game we cover is 'Lost Ember', an adventure game that graduated from Kickstarter about a wolf that eventually led to a conversation about a simulator of a goat! Our final topic is the 3rd-person action game 'Devil's Hunt', which is very much in the vein of 'Devil May Cry', but it looks to be a real...

Digital Suffering #11 - Greedfall, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey & Concrete Genie

8/21/2019
More
Welcome to another helping of Digital Suffering! Your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something get started on 'Greedfall', an action RPG set in a fantasy 17th century, that puts us in mind of... Dragon's Dogma? Following on from that, we look at 'Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey', a survival game that's a step above others in the genre. Need fire? Then you'll have to discover it! Want a weapon? Then you'll have to invent the pointy stick! Survive 8 million years to win! The...

Digital Suffering #10 - Remnant: From the Ashes, Eastern Exorcist & Bleak Faith: Forsaken

8/15/2019
More
Let's get this show on the road! Your hosts Steven Something, Pha-n-to-m Li-mb (Phantom Limb) and J-a-m-es (James) are in high spirits as we look at another batch of upcoming titles. First is 'Remnant: From the Ashes', an action-RPG with roguelike elements to the levels, with such a heavy emphasis on ranged-combat we wonder if that will greatly lessen the melee side of things. Next is 'Eastern Exorcist' (which was still titled 'Oriental Exorcist' at the time of recording), a gorgeous 2-D...

Digital Suffering #9 - Teppen, Blue Protocol & The Witcher

8/8/2019
More
On today's show, your hosts Phantom Limb, Steven Something and James (who materialises out of thin air halfway through) discuss a number of topics. We check out the newly-released 'Teppen' and wonder why it's not Hearthstone, we talk about upcoming 'Carrion' and 'Blue Protocol' (which sets us off on a 'Gravity Rush' tangent) and touch upon Kurtzpel. Wrapping up we take a peek at the teaser trailer for 'The Witcher' TV series coming to Netflix, and the bits of Henry Cavill that will entail....

Digital Suffering #8 - The Sinking City, Freedom Finger & Games Done Quick

7/23/2019
More
Welcome! Your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something take a look at 'The Sinking City' and come away very hopeful for how the game handles madness. We reminisce about similar games in the past, how nostalgia affects people perception of old games and about just how terrible the camera was in Super Mario 64. That Lakitu definitely had it in for us! Next, we take a look at up-coming indie 'shmup' 'Freedom Finger' whose art style we find very delightful, almost Python-esque. We also touch...

Digital Suffering #7 - My Friend Pedro, Harry Potter Wizards Unite & Auto Chess

7/16/2019
More
We're off to a flying start as hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something try to get James up to speed on the Playdate before the episode even officially begins! Beginning proper, the three of us gently critique 'My Friend Pedro' and then we go on a merry tour of the AR-based Pokémon Go clones starting with 'Harry Potter Wizards Unite', 'Jurassic World Alive' & 'Ghostbusters World'. Niantic's 'Codename Neon' gets dredged up (how many of you remember that?) briefly before we move on to the...

7/1/2019
More
Today's podcast brings you part two of our E3 coverage as your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something go through the news and details that have trickled out. We discuss 'Shenmue 3' being announced as an Epic Store exclusive and why it's a non-issue, we dissect 'The Outer Worlds' and its roots in the Fallout Franchise and we even attempt to count the forthcoming Final Fantasys (Final Fantasii?) announced at E3. After all that, we take deeper looks at the dreamy 'Sky: Children of Light',...

Digital Suffering #4 - The Playdate, Phantasy Star Online & Theremins!

6/13/2019
More
Today, your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something make a play date with the Playdate handheld gaming system... And we do our best to be as un-negative as possible. Or at least, one of us tries to be un-negative... We talk about the device's place in the hardware pantheon which leads us to reminisce about its contemporaries such as the Nintendo Gameboy and the Nokia N-Gage. From there we touch upon the Sega Dreamcast and I get lost on Ragol as I get all misty-eyed about Phantasy Star...

Join your hosts Phantom Limb, Steven Something and James (the new-ish guy) as we go on a deep dive into upcoming title 'John Wick Hex', a shallow dive into 'Toki' and remakes in general, and finally we explore the paddling pools that are 'Children of Morta' and 'Raji: An Ancient Epic'. All rights for images & video used belong to the respective rights holders.

Digital Suffering #2 - Control, Final Fantasy VII remake & Rage 2

5/19/2019
More
Your hosts Phantom Limb and Steven Something take quite the tour this time around. We start with a look at the forthcoming game 'Control' before musing about the Final Fantasy VII remake and remakes in general. Should they remain faithful reproductions of the original, or is it acceptable that they get updated and improved upon to account for the modern player? Oh, and the bits where we say "Advent Children", perform a mental substitution and replace that with "The Spirits Within"! Finally...
