In an odd twist of fate, this year’s Oscars are actually relevant for a video game podcast (not that that’s stopped us in the past.) Rob talks us through the Academy Award winning Colette, which was made as supplemental material for Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, a VR game that didn’t get a lot of buzz. Patrick has been checking out Returnal, a roguelike third person shooter from the creators of arcade styled classics like Super Stardust HD and Resogun. After the break, Austin takes us on a gardening tour as he nears the end of his side quest grind in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139.... Cado lost some time to Naraka: Bladepoint, a melee combat focused Battle Royale with solid combat design that works better than it sounds. Then the crew dives into the Question Bucket to learn about kettle chicken, halloween scares, and ramps. No, not those ramps!
