We are a videogame podcast from the mouths and minds of people from the land of the videogame. We are a collection of current and former developers, publishers, journalists and players who talk about the games we love and loathe.
Listen back through the most recent episodes
It’s Persona time (much to Ben’s chagrin) so Max jumps into Atlus’ latest poppy JRPG while Paul tries to survive the harsh world of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. Gritty survival and heart stealing thieves? It’s a mix we can only call Toxic.
Join the team as Paul and Max spar over Bioware’s latest Mass Effect entry and Ben get’s his melee on with For Honor. And then, for a bit of extra flavour, we dive into the relationship of the Snorks and the Smurfs for some reason.
Move over Breath of the Wild, Nathan is declaring your time in the sun as 2017’s best game is over with the arrival of Yoko Taro’s NieR: Automata. In addition, the team analyse the fan and critical reaction to the latest entry in the Mass Effect franchise – Andromeda.
