God of War, The Magpie Murders, and Jurassic Perk - Staying In Episode 55

5/14/2018

Kerby is a great street game to play after dark, we all know that. That’s obvious. Bushido from GCT Studios is pretty strong too it turns out, as is that God of War jam from Santa Monica Studios. The latest performance of Macbeth by the RSC? That’s good too. And so are Anthony Horowitz’s The Magpie Murders, Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem, and Frank Herbert’s [...]

Avengers: Infinity War, Magic: The Gathering Arena, and the Cursed Book - Staying In Episode 54

Oh good lord, where to begin? You should know straight off the bat that there are huge Avengers: Infinity War spoilers in the last 30 minutes of this episode - which happens to be our longest ever episode! But don’t worry, we give you plenty of advance warning before they hit. Seriously though, don’t listen to that section if you haven’t seen the film yet. Also the language used in this episode is pretty blue at times, as the last few weeks have been… hectic, to say the least. We’re...

We do our best to not be absolutely insufferable about our Games Media Brit List nomination in this podcast. Are we successful? Probably not. What else? Oh yes! We’ve been playing The Battle of Polytopia’s multiplayer for months now - since the beta even - and we’re ready to talk about how this update adds to our impressions of the single player offering. Be prepared for INTENSE DISCOURSE. On a similar note, there’s a load in here about our recent experiences with

Ready Player One, Assassin’s Creed Origins, The Darkside Detective, and Dave Ryan from Link to the Cast - Staying In Episode 52

Up for some hot new video games action? Well tough, because we’re talking about why the shooting in Titanfall 2 is so gosh darn good. Sorry to pull a fast one on you like that. We cool? Cool. There’s also Assassin’s Creed Origins talk too, that’s kind of new, right? Regardless, it’s providing us some excellent opportunities to wander around Egypt and partake in a little digital tourism, a thing we’re also up to with the astonishing Yakuza 0. We were lucky enough to be joined by Dave Ryan...

Ten Candles, Hidden Agenda, and Cosmic Encounter - Staying In Episode 51

3/15/2018
More
Games, games, and even more games: that’s the general theme of this episode. There’s a big discussion about Cosmic Encounter and why you probably need to play it twice to really start appreciating its galactic strategy. And when we’re not ruling the universe, we’re mucking about on a boat in one of our favourite RPGs: Ten Candles from Cavalry Games. We also hook up to PlayLink on the PlayStation 4, checking out Hidden Agenda from Supermassive Games in the process, which is a tens [...]

Black Panther, Monikers, and Hunt for the Ring - Staying In Episode 50

How did Kris’s mum accidentally get involved in the Copenhagen drug scene? Could Sam figure out who “not the guy with the bolts” was? Which one of them manages to casually drop the phrase “Chekhov’s Gun” into a conversation? If you’d like to know the answer to these questions, give this episode a listen. And there’s some other stuff too… Like why one of us is absolutely head-over-heels in love with Hunt for the Ring from Ares Games, and how that lovely little Lord of the Rings-based...

Should 30 year old men be allowed to say “sick” and “dope”? By the end of this podcast the lads will have convinced you that no, no they absolutely should not. But light DIY tasks and watching Hey Duggee? Oh yes, that’s very much more in our wheelhouse. There’s a fair bit of LEGO in this episode too. Not only is there a contender for the worst LEGO sets ever created - Final Duel II - but there’s also our very divided opinions on The LEGO Batman Movie. Then it’s off to the concert hall we...

The Book of Dust, Ten Candles, and Metal Gear Survive - Staying In Episode 48

1/31/2018

✓ Board Games ✓ Video Games ✓ Good Books ✓ Invasive Medical Proceedures It’s another textbook episode of Staying In. There’s chat about a new fitness thing they’re all doing (well… almost all of them), a couple of minutes where they gush about My Brother, My Brother and Me, and a couple more minutes after that where they basically just rip off My Brother, My Brother and Me’s whole thing. Plus thoughts on Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust (and why it’s better than Harry Potter), a big...

Overcooked, Fortnite, and InnerSpace - Staying In Episode 47

It’s 2018 and we’re talking about Noel’s House Party A WHOLE LOT. That show was great and the board game is… well you’ll find out when you listen to the podcast… cheers, Robin. We also get to grips with the Nintendo Switch, Overcooked, Snipperclips, and think about why non-gamers might find it difficult to get into video games. Being the avant-garde gamers that we are, we then go on to talk about Fortnite and how we’re using our winning “hunkering [...]

Boss Monster, Guild Wars, Dungeons 3, and Greg Giddens from This is Xbox - Staying In Episode 46

12/31/2017

Pretty sure this episode is a good candidate for the “Most Gaming Chat on a Podcast” award which I just made up just then. There’s Stardew Valley’s farming loveliness, the chilly magic of Winter’s Day in Guild Wars 2, and the serenity of painting Bushido wargaming miniatures. Then there’s some very even-handed loot box chat, why PlayStation VR might just be better than Vive VR, and building and running dungeons in Boss Monster, Dungeons 3, and

The Christmas Special - Staying In Episode 45

Alright, straight up, if this is the first time listening to the podcast, maybe go back and listen to another one instead, as this is a slight departure from our usual brand of talking about stuff what we like. Because this is our Christmas special and, as usual, we’re doing our Secret Santa and waxing lyrical about this time of year. We discuss how we might fare at being three wise men, talk Christmas routines, weigh in on bread sauce, share presents, and reveal the greatest Christmas...

How do you do, fellow kids? Have you checked out Rhino Hero: Super Battle yet? Well we have and we think it’s lovely, and we tell you all about it on the latest episode. The equally lovely medieval city builder and tile-placing euro game Kingdomino gets a look-in too. If you’re after something equally breezy, then there’s also a discussion on why the cultural statements that Watch Dogs 2 attempts to make are at odds with its core gameplay, leading to a curious and jarring ludonarrative...

Thor: Ragnarok, DC’s Metal, and Creamfields - Staying In Episode 43

Thor and Hulk and Waititi, Batman and Snyder and Capullo - some combinations just work better than others, and we talk about them at length in this episode. Because first up there’s what we thought of Thor: Ragnarok (spoilers: we liked it a whole bunch), then a little bit of Goddess of Thunder chat, plus a whole bunch of spoiler-filled splurge on DC’s Dark Nights: Metal comics. Also one of us is going to see Above & Beyond, which immediately spawns a chat about illegal substances FOR...

If you’re a fan of turn-based strategy then boy howdy are you in the right place. Because there’s all kinds of tactics-based chat throughout, taking in Darkest Dungeon and the Crimson Court DLC, digital miniatures title Warbands: Bushido, and genre flagship XCOM 2. That’s a lot of strategy gaming. We also delve into The Polybius Conspiracy, a creepy new podcast from Radiotopia that explores a video game that never existed… OR DID IT? There’s also even more golf (it’s the new Witcher...

It’s perhaps the most exhausting episode ever, as Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero) strap on some wristbands, limber up, and take our places on the starting grid for lots of chat about sports. We discuss why Frubes may not be the best mid-workout drink, all the while tackling The Great King Size Chocolate Bar Conspiracy. We find out why one of us has been watching Nick Faldo sink shots at Pebble Beach while in the company of

Kris (@DigitalStrider) and Peter (@XeroXeroXero) helm Episode 36 of Staying In, as they talk about ground-breaking walking simulators, brand new mobile games, cutting edge cinema, and farming tools from the Iron Age. We’ve been making our first tentative steps into Albion Online the MMO from Sandbox Interactive, finding out what remains of Edith Finch in What Remains of Edith Finch, and discovering that we aresimply not good enough at games to beat Miles & Kilo. Plus lots of chat about...

Wonder Woman, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X, and deconstructing sheds - Staying In Episode 34

It’s a matter of life and death and sheds for Sam (@MrSamTurner), and a matter of taste for Peter (@XeroXeroXero) and his Rainbow Drops, in our 34th episode. It’s also a matter of fact that Kris (@DigitalStrider) thinks Wonder Woman is the best DC movie in years, and Dan (@ThisDanFrost) not wanting a Nintendo Switch after E3’s game reveals should probably be a matter for the authorities. There’s heated debate over the merits of the

We finally get round to talking about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as a group, as Dan (@ThisDanFrost) leads a nice chat about why we enjoyed it so much and how it’s a breath of fresh air. Kris (@DigitalStrider) and Peter (@XeroXeroXero) have both been playing even more Star Realms, which is impressive considering they’ve been sinking a load of time into two other games too: namely Onirim and Yakuza 0. We touch upon a lovely little game called

Like everyone else at the moment, we’re talking about American Gods in this episode, celebrating the return of “appointment to view” television with Neil Gaiman’s wonderful new work. There’s also chat about how TV can be accessible to new audiences by following the examples of “adventure of the week” stories such as those found in Red Dwarf and Doctor Who. Sam (@MrSamTurner) and Kris (@DigitalStrider) both get to talking about Batman: The Telltale Series as well as Breakfast Games™, whi...

For our landmark 30th episode we kick things off with a round of The Ikea Game™. Then we discuss how Android, iPhone, and iPad strategy and democracy game Subterfuge made us trust each other much much less. Sam (@MrSamTurner) and Kris (@DigitalStrider) recount their journey through an actual real life plague town to Alix (@EruditeWolf) and Peter (@XeroXeroXero), as well as touching upon a host of new board games.
