Re: June 2021

Hi guys, I know this is a bit out of date and I'm sorry to bring up Darren's Diddygate masturbation story again but I just wanted to show some solidarity. I have my own sordid video game related tale of a first encounter with Madame Palm and her 5 lovely daughters. I must be a similar age to Darren ...

Re: 478 - Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is without a doubt the most visually spectacular video game I've ever played. I've played some native PS5 games since getting one at launch, and even though GoT is obviously a PS4 game the extra detail present in those games cannot beat the sheer artistry on display from Sucker Pun...

Re: Our next podcast recording (13.3.21): 460 - DOOM Eternal

Like a lot of the other contributors, I really liked Doom 2016. I played most of it on the train on my Switch (with my pro controller!) and I had a blast playing a couple of hours each day during my commute. Doom Eternal has been a different story, as I've bounced off it after playing the first 4 le...

Re: January 2021

Hi guys, this is a bit late but I just wanted to say a big thanks for everything you've put out in 2020. You've been an ever present companion through these strange times, soothing me while I attempt to temper the boredom of not seeing people by doing DIY, going for long runs, and walking the dog. I...

Re: 455 - Resident Evil 3 (2020)

I missed Resident Evil 3 back in the day as it came out shortly before the Dreamcast, which I picked up on launch, and I was dreaming of Code Veronica's amazing (i.e. drab and grey) 3D environments. This means I have absolutely no nostalgia for the game as I did with the stellar RE 2 remake (which i...

Re: 456 - Pokémon

I played Pokemon Yellow in the futuristic year of 2000 as a plucky 14 year old who had just started wearing baggy jeans and listening to nu-metal & hip hop. The reason I mention that is because I must have bought Eminem's Marshall Mather's LP shortly before playing it, as my main memories of the...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (3.5.20) - 417: Marvel's Spider-Man

I guess I'm going to be going against the grain here when I say I didn't particularly like this game. I was initially wowed by it. The graphics, the city traversal and the bright and exciting overall feel of the game blew me away for a couple of hours after first picking it up. But after that initia...

Re: 449: Super Mario Odyssey

Mario Odyssey is a wonderful, joyful, gaming experience. It's the first to really hearken back to Mario 64 and give players a place to just...muck about in. I loved the potential in each level as I moved on to each one, picking at the edges and exploring and trying to find the more obvious moons. Ev...
