Hey hey! Remember us? We’re either back or still here, depending on your proclivities. But here we are with a fresh new episode full of all the mostly latest games. We realize that a certain biggest game of the year recently released, but we’ll get to that later.

We might be a week late, but we’ve got an extra long episode to make up for it! And you can thank Tacoma for that. That’s right, we’ve finally brought our deep dive spoiler chat of Tacoma with us and it is a doozy. Our thoughts on this one are a bit mixed, so check it… The post Rather Be Playing 32: Chrono (Heart)Break appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

Stevo is dead……… sick this week. So that leaves Elliot and Josh to carry the mantle! The show must go on, after all. So of course we took the opportunity to tell Stevo what to play. Josh and Elliot have played some great games that Stevo is still depriving himself of and the rest of… The post Rather Be Playing 31: Stevo = Luigi appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

Something special is in the air! Is it a blue moon? A shooting star? Mars at perigee? Even rarer! All three of us were spotted in the same room at the same time! So naturally we decided to play a ton of Rocket League and Towerfall. We may also have recorded our dirty thirty-eth episode.… The post Rather Be Playing 30: Octo Travels appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

Remember when we rolled Oxenfree in the roulette like a million years ago? Then there was E3 and travels, civilizations rose, civilizations fell, eons came and went. And that brings us to episode 29 wherein we finally finished Oxenfree! It was a great little game and we have a few things to say about it… The post Rather Be Playing 29: Emotional Juices appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

Happy Birthday America! And happy belated to Canada, our increasingly attractive cousin to the north! Elliot was in Montréal for Canada Day and he spent it playing Switch on la toilette! But now we’re all back in the states for our favorite excuse to grill various meats and set off explosives. Stay safe out there!

And we’re keeping the conference party rolling with E3 2018 Part 2! It’s only been a few days, but it’s E3! We had a lot to say and two weeks was too long to wait for the exciting conclusion to our E3 coverage! But that’s not the only thing going on! What’s that?

Right now, with a video game podcast based in Washington, DC, it is an exceptionally exciting time. Our city has its first ever hockey championship, and it’s E3 2018 time baby! We promise not to talk sports too much, but we had to mention it. It’s a pretty big deal for our little town, whether… The post Rather Be Playing: E3 2018 – Part 1 appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

Have you ever forgotten your own birthday? We sure did. Happy belated anniversary to us!

What kind of Rockstar gamer are you? Do you beeline from story quest to story quest until the end or do you go for every sidequest, collectible, and achievement? Or do you just see how many cars you can steal and people you can murder before you’re caught? With Red Dead Redemption 2 on the… The post Rather Be Playing 26: Red Deadwood Redemption appeared first on Rather Be Playing.

I mean not terrible as in bad, but terrible as in ‘hoooooly hell go easy on me!’ Of course we’re talking about Cuphead here. The game you hate to love and love to hate, but that makes you love it even more. And despite how hard and unforgiving it is, we finished it!

It’s another fortnight, another episode. But this fortnight we’re actually talking about Fortnite!

Welcome to another week of playing lots of games! Not only that, but we’re shaking things up with our format too.

This episode cuts the fat and serves up all the meat. We talk 100% games we’ve been playing this week. Not even any news stories make it in to the discussion. Speaking of those games, remember our roulette from two weeks ago? Uncharted: The Lost Legacy?

After the last couple of episodes being loaded with all these games being played left and right and up and down, we’re calming things down a bit this week. We’re slowing our roll and taking a more measured approach to these fine delicacies we call the 2017 game lineup.

It’s a new year with new games and new resolutions. And those resolutions for us are to… not play any of those new games? What? Why? Don’t we host a podcast about playing video games?
