    #36 Vault Theatre - Uncharted (2022) with Mat Roff

    #36 Vault Theatre - Uncharted (2022) with Mat Roff

    We’re back with a very special, one-off episode with Vault Theatre! Fresh out of the cinema and with our best pal Mat Roff, we take a very deep dive into Tom Holland’s first adventure as Nathan Drake. 



    It’s a very spoiler-heavy episode, so you have been warned. Has the film served fans of the game well? Does it live up to the Allan Ungar’s Uncharted Fan Film from 2018? We answer these questions and many more in this episode. If you haven’t checked out our very first episode where we cover Nathan Fillion’s interpretation of Drake, be sure to listen to it HERE. 



    We’ll return later in the year with Series Four and with guests galore - unintentional rhyming for the win. Just as a production note, we’re sharing microphones, so apologies about some of the quieter moments in the episode. 



    For more on Mat Roff, be sure to follow him on Twitter.

    #35 ‘Merry Christmas, Ange…’ – An Education of Eastenders with Daryl Baxter

    #35 ‘Merry Christmas, Ange…’ – An Education of Eastenders with Daryl Baxter

    It’s almost Christmas and it’s safe to say, this year’s been an odd one. So why not end it on an odd episode! In this off-piste special, this week’s guest Daryl Baxter, and regular co-host Vic decide to dust off the VHS tapes and educate Jase on some of the festive highlights of the East End.



    Yes, we’re usually all about the games, but as a festive extra-special treat, we’re whisking you off to the picturesque Albert Square at the most, err, ‘wonderful’ time of year, to talk you through its most memorable moments. There's also a quiz, so grab yourself a pen and paper and play along with us. Just bear in mind you will only win bragging rights, so do with that what you will at the Christmas dinner table.



    We wanted to take the time to thank you all so much for tuning in week on week! We’ve loved recording series three and we’re so pleased that you’ve been enjoying it. We’ll be back next year for a jam-packed Series Four!



    However you wish to celebrate this time of year, we hope you have a wonderful break and stay safe.

    #34 ‘The True Detox of Evil’ - Tomb Raider II

    Following hot on the heels of last week’s Tomb Raider triumph, we’re back this week to talk about its sequel, ‘Tomb Raider II: Starring Lara Croft’.

    We climb out of the tombs and into some stunning locations, as Lara takes us on yet another exciting adventure. So grab the keys to the speedboat, and we’ll meet you at the canals of Venice.

    What were some of your favourite moments of the second instalment? We’d love to hear them over on Twitter, @Vault_Unlocked.

    #33 ‘I Only Play For Sport…’ Tomb Raider (1996)

    #33 ‘I Only Play For Sport…’ Tomb Raider (1996)

    We know we’re well into Series Three and it’s surprising, even to us, that it’s taken us so long to discuss the birth of a franchise that would quite literally change our lives, and gaming, forever.

    In this episode, we’re excavating the story of Lara Croft and her first adventure we were able to join her on, back in 1996. We’re also sharing some of your tweets that you’ve sent to us about your favourite classic Tomb Raider moments.

    Were you a fan of all things Croft? Let us know on Twitter, @Vault_Unlocked.

    #32 ‘Gems of Yesteryear’ – A focus on Steam and the Nintendo DS

    With Vic admitting to Jase about her love of Hidden Object games, delving into the past appears to be yet another easy discussion in this week’s episode. Vic digs deeper into the relic that is the Nintendo DS, Jase lends an ear whilst telling us about the games he’s enjoyed on Steam.



    What are those seemingly forgotten handhelds or games have you been getting your hands on recently? Let us know by sending us a tweet over at the @Vault_Unlocked, on Twitter.

    #31 ‘Staff Announcement…’ A Shift at Two Point Hospital

    We’re clocking on for a shift at Two Point Hospital, where we chat about PC vs. PS4 gameplay, comparisons to Bullfrog's ‘Theme Hospital’ and a collection of highlights that we’ve found so far as we climb up the ranks in the world of medicine.



    How did you find Two Point Hospital? Let us know on Twitter @Vault_Unlocked!
