    Episode 371: The Bitcoin Corruption of Austin Walker

    There comes a time in every PC owner’s life where you have to make some tough decisions. Well, for the better part of the last two years, one Rob Zacny has been slowly stemming the oncoming waves of failing computer components but his PC has finally bitten the dust. That means he’s spent the last week exploring the world of Cloud Gaming, and found that landscape treacherous. Austin’s way of saying “new year, new me” is to finish off some old games, revisiting Hitman 2 and Star Wars The Old Republic to finally put those to bed. Patrick is learning the beauty of HDR with new forms of streaming games to his phone, Cado is becoming his best hacker self in EXAPUNKS, and Rob is finally in on a little known rogue like deck builder called Slay the Spire.


    Discussed: Rob’s Streaming Adventures 3:12, Hitman 2 40:04, Star Wars: The Old Republic 43:00, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim 56:19, Demon’s Souls 1:01:50, Persona 5 Strikers 1:03:00, Slay the Spire 1:13:04

    Episode 368: A Holiday Netrunner Miracle

    Episode 368: A Holiday Netrunner Miracle

    We’re Back! After a hopefully restful and relaxing break, Rob, Gita, and Cado are here on this most auspicious of Mondays. We avoid the Great Slack Crash of 2021 by podcasting through it and talking about our breaks and how we spent the time. Gita got back into the God of War series and began to draw connections to the works of Michael Bay, and Cado got really into the “dead” Android: Netrunner card game while looking for his cyberpunk fix, and somehow ended up playing X-Wing instead.


    Discussed: God of War 5:11, Android: Netrunner 29:55, X-Wing 48:00

    Our Favorite Games of 2020

    Our Favorite Games of 2020

    The time has finally come to put an end to 2020, and as with any end of year extravaganza on a gaming podcast, that means it's GOTY time. Join Austin, Gita, Patrick, Rob, and Ricardo as they discuss the one game they loved this year, the one that stood out over the rest, the one that challenged them to overcome, the one that brought them comfort during this hellish year, or the one that put a mirror to our reality and stood in defiance of it.

One of the best game related podcasts

I heard about waypoint radio in a brazilian gaming podcast called Jogabilidade about two months ago and i can tell for sure that waypoint radio is one of the best game related podcast I know. Thanks, guys.
