Dear Esther Live, The LEGO Batman Movie, and Sunless Skies - Staying In Episode 49

2/17/2018

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
More
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

12/14/2017
More
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...

Paranoia, Kingdomino, and The Good Place - Staying In Episode 44

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

11/16/2017

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...

Darkest Dungeon, Warbands: Bushido, and The Polybius Conspiracy - Staying In Episode 42

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...

Everybody’s Golf, Eight-Minute Empire, and Zoo Ball - Staying In Episode 39

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

Albion Online, Baby Driver, and Scythe (not that one) - Staying In Episode 36

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

7/1/2017
More
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.

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.

It’s Sam (@MrSamTurner) and Peter (@XeroXeroXero) hosting Episode 29 of the show so - shock! horror! - there’s plenty of chat about intricate card games and curious indie video games. The pair discuss their first impressions of Fantasy Flight’s excellent RPG and LCG hybrid Arkham Horror: The Card Game, examining how it avoids ludonarrative dissonance through smart use of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Sam’s visited Sugar & Dice, a superb board game cafe in Liverpool. This then makes...
