Episode 76: SPOOKTOBERFEST '23 - F.E.A.R.
If we're being honest, F.E.A.R. didn't really fill us with much fear, but it did fill a bunch of super soldiers with very slow-moving bullets that look cool. So, there's that.
The game does have horror leanings, especially with its Ring/Grudge influences, and we talk about that as well as the story, gunplay, visuals, development, trivia and much more!

Episode 75: SPOOKTOBERFEST '23 - Layers of Fear (2016)
BOO! Spooky season is upon us and, as we are contractually obligated, so is Spooktoberfest! Once again we bring you a terrifying dose of Halloween havoc with a whole month of horror podcasts.
Up first this year is Bloober Team's 2016 cult hit, Layers of Fear. Alex was genuinely terrified by this game, while David was a much braver boy.
We delve deep into the story of the game and do our best to explain all the subtle things you may have missed.
