    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 93 - Why we can't stop playing Wilmot's Warehouse

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 93 - Why we can't stop playing Wilmot's Warehouse

    Wilmot's Warehouse is a good game about sorting boxes. Alice B likes to pile beautiful sunsets on top of one another. Brendan likes to store dangerous buttons next to the nuclear missiles. And I can't remember what boxes Nate likes. Probably eggs.

    Heroes of the Brinelands, ep 165 - Waking up in Snarlgrove

    Heroes of the Brinelands, ep 165 - Waking up in Snarlgrove

    Welcome back, brine fans. Our pen and paper RPG podcast is continuing its salty journey to the top of the pod charts with its fantasy tales of bravery and fishmongering. This week, the gang find themselves waking up in the cavernous city-state of Snarlgrove, nursing some terrible hangovers.

    Can Nate, Astrid and Alice B uncover the events of their previous night in the settlement? Or did they get so blackout wasted that it's impossible to tell? As usual, the only way to find out is to listen along.

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 92 - It's a family thing

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 92 - It's a family thing

    We're talking about families in games this week. Brendan likes the Mishima family from Tekken, who throw each other into volcanoes. Sin prefers the simple life of the Sims, and Matthew enjoys the magical tales of the Finch family in What Remains of Edith Finch.

    We've also been playing stuff. Children of Morta continues the family theme with some dungeon crawling. Gears 5 has some mother-daughter tension as well. And Ghost Recon Breakpoint ... well, I guess a special ops squad is like a family?

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 90 - The Gamescom 2019 warm-up

    Gamescom is next week, and it will see a few of the RPS treehousers zipping off to Cologne. In this pod, they prepare themselves for the mission ahead. Thumbs at the ready, maggots.

    Alice is looking forward to playing some Watch Dogs Legion, and seeing how much Laaaaahndaaaan they can fit into their game. Matthew is eager to see the Cyberpunk 2077 demo that was shown at E3, to see what’s what.

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 89 - Why we’re playing Streets Of Rogue

    Streets Of Rogue is a tiny immersive sim full of angry gorillas. We can’t stop playing it. This week, the pod squad are gathering to chat about why they think it’s so good. But also choose their favourite characters, from a drug-addicted investment banker to a tiny naked body snatcher.

    Also, it’s Astrid’s first appearance! Well, her first time on the main pod, anyway. Plus, a special patch notes quiz!

I like it quite a bit

Typically entertaining. Matches the oddball irreverent humor style of the website.

Acclaimed games writing outlet with an admirably harried-feeling podcast

With an assortment of hosts and co-hosts, the show tunnels into and around central topics (like romances in games or memorable rats). Hosts/writers are rich in articulation. Genre and platform preferences abound. Mostly they have fun. Sometimes friends get hurt, but nobody dies.
