Electronic Wireless Show Ep 17 - Roguelikes and Divinity: Original Sin 2

We're chatting roguelikes, roguelites, roguefites and roguelifes. None of these things mean anything. Pip is enjoying the blocky scampering of Rogue Islands, while Adam is fantasy-ing ll over the RPG world of Divinity: Original Sin 2. Brendan is just sitting there feeling sad because PIP IS LEAVING US.

Electronic Wireless Show Ep 16 - Pets in games, Fugl, Tooth and Tail

It's an animal extravaganza! We're talking pets in games this week. Alice joins us to praise a terrible raccoon Pokémon who's great at surfing. Pip adores the ghostly holo-cat of Tacoma. But I prefer a cute xenomorph. We also talk about birdy meditation of Fugl, the ratty wars of strategy game Tooth and Tail, and the ever-popular man-murder of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. On top of that, we confront the producer of The Sims 4 Cats and Dogs with some Quickfire Questions. Links: Have you...

Electronic Wireless Show Ep 15 - Life Is Strange: Before The Storm and XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

The podgang love videogames so much they met up in *real life* to talk about them in a room. Pip likes the new teen angst drama Life Is Strange: Before the Storm, in which she's been talking back like a brat. Speaking of which, special guest Chris Bratt from Eurogamer joins us to talk about XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, because we're sick of Adam's face. Meanwhile, Brendan is getting slap-happy in brutal facepuncher Absolver. Links: XCOM 2: War of the Chosen review:...

Electronic Wireless Show Ep 13 - Gamescom build-up, The Long Dark, Plunkbat

Pip, Alice and Adam gather round the podfire for warmth to talk about the lies (told by Adam) of Gamescom, the chilly wastes of The Long Dark, the beautiful rain of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, and the deadly climates of No Man's Sky. We then turn to you, to discuss reader's favourite in-game weather. And somewhere in the middle there's also a long discussion about karaoke, for some reason. Gamescom is like this: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/08/07/gamescom-2015-overview/ Artifact...

Electronic Wireless Show Ep 12 - INSIDE, Foxhole and TV show adaptations

Graham and Brendan man the podcast all by themselves. The topic: "What TV show deserves to have a good videogame adaptation?" Graham desires a road trip game based on anime Kino's Journey, whereas Brendan wants a cop management sim of The Wire. The listeners also have their say. But we've also been playing things. Limbo follow-up Inside gets the pair disagreeing over dark humour, while Brendan has been hunkering down in the sandbox multiplayer war-mongering of Foxhole. Links: Kino's...

Electronic Wireless Show Ep 11 - Tacoma, The Shrouded Isle and comfort games

We're talking comfort games - things you play when you feel down, stressed or sick. Adam cosies up in his cottage in the Long Dark, Pip faffs around in Zelda, and Brendan renames characters in Final Fantasy IX. But we've also been playing Tacoma, the new spacewalking sci-fi tale from Fullbright, the creators of Gone Home. So we also do some Quickfire Questions with Karla Zimonja of that very studio, as well as looking at what YOU play as a comfort game. Links: The Long Dark is survival at...

The RPS team gather to talk merch, and why it's often a bit rubbish. Pip will regale you with a story about a hidden dagger, while Adam has his own bloody airport tale. Brendan doesn't have any merch, because he THINKS HE'S TOO GOOD FOR IT THE SWINE. We've also played "transhumanist text adventure" Sun Dogs, in which we drink cocktails of bacteria and get swallowed up by solar flares between glimpsing beauty during our immortal post-human lives.
