    Take a look around you. If things look different, consider that it might be because we're in the NEXT GENERATION, BABY. Sony sent Hamish a PS5, so he goes over his experiences with the hardware (the DualSense and SSD), Demon's Souls, Astro's Playroom and Spider-Man Miles Morales. He also finished Yakuza: Like a Dragon. and has some... mixed thoughts. Nico brought his own next-gen title to the table in the form of the unwitting face of the PS5—Bugsnax—and things get weird and dark. Nico also finally played Deadly Premonition 2 and we struggle to talk about it for fear of spoiling the first game. Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is legitimately one of the most fun shooter campaigns in years. Trust in yourself!

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.120 - Them's the Pumps

    We thank System of a Down for their service in what happened this week. Hamish has played through a whole bunch of Yakuza: Like a Dragon and it completely rules. Nico gives us his D&D Minute, and he also finished Mafia: Definitive Edition so we talk about that game at length for the third or fourth time in a row. Watch Dogs Legion is inadvertently the most dystopian game ever made. Descenders is a really chill game and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 just got an update that changes things up in ways we didn't expect. Just wait 'til the don hears about dis!

    Wawaweewa! There's a new Borat film out and one half of the cast has seen it because what the heck else is there to do in 2020! We also discuss why D&D is fun! Mobster accents in Mafia: Definitive Edition now that Nico has played it! Could Amnesia: Rebirth be in with a chance to win the prestigious Golden Pumpkin award? The conclusion to the Tomato Way trilogy! VR is the only way to play Star Wars Squadrons! Our best/worst fast food rankings! Why we're anticipating Yakuza 7 and Cyberpunk 2077! All this and more on this week's edition of the Writing on GamesCast! Dziękuję!

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.118 - I Just Arrived and I Suck

    The COVID Gamers are back to report on Big League Politics! No one's wearing masks! People are throwing fireworks at each other! But more importantly, just what the hell is Genshin Impact and why is it anime Breath of the Wild?! 

    Also discussed: Mafia Definitive Edition is some of the best crime fiction games have to offer. Nico is predictably in love with Baldur's Gate 3. Spelunky 2 seems like an incredibly well-made game that both of us dislike playing. Hades is the remedy to all of Spelunky 2's problems. Trackmania 2020 has a bunch of new tracks and it gives us a chance to go off about how terrible that game's UI still is. We have an idea for a Jackass-themed podcast that might actually be really great. All this and more on this week's episode of the Writing on GamesCast!

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.117 - Hawk Talk

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.117 - Hawk Talk

    We had way too many games left from last week that we forgot to talk about, so we needed to get at you again with another episode that thankfully didn't take four months to release. We talk Lynchian awkwardness before getting into the PS5 reveal/Bethesda Microsoft stuff. Online people are anti-art weirdos who remind us of Tipper Gore. We spend a good hour or so trying to talk about Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 but it's so perfect that we end up discussing basically the entire Tony Hawk franchise. Trackmania should be the biggest game on the planet but it's too much of a confusing mess and that's partially why it's great. Freedom Fighters is what would happen if you gave Mario a gun. Super Mario 3D All-Stars gives Mario a water gun which is kinda close. Flight Simulator turns into The Witness once you descend below those clouds. Thanks for listening to these Late-twenties Skateboarders for another week!

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.116 - Travis Bickle as The Hulk

    So, um, hey! We're back after perhaps the lengthiest break we've ever had—hooray for protracted moves between apartments and enduring mental trauma! After a brief look back at the last few months (and of course the obligatory hour of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure talk), we chill out a little bit to get back into the swing of things. Holy moly, a lot of games came out while we were away, huh? Hamish wonders why Marvel's Avengers isn't just the simple cinematic brawler it clearly wants to be (and talks about that Captain America costume). Nico convinces Hamish to get into Rainbow Six Siege in 2020. Fast and Furious Crossroads is utterly, bafflingly bad. Because Hamish decided to finish it after all these years, we finally get to talk at length about why Deadly Premonition is just legitimately one of the best games ever made (it's so good that Hamish gets hiccups, sorry). We discuss your favourite game you haven't heard of yet, Bad Guys at School. Oh, and we make brief mention of The Last of Us Part 2, as if that game isn't totally exhausting to talk about. 

    This podcast, for us, is a really nice break from the horrors of the real world and it feels good to do it again. Thank you for sticking with us, and generally just keeping going through this whole mess. We can do this, together.
