    S3 Episode 18: everyone's loving Hades 2!

    S3 Episode 18: everyone's loving Hades 2!

    In the grand tradition established by one (1) prior release, Supergiant dropped Hades II over the weekend and we at the Electronic Wireless show podcast have all been playing and enjoying it bunches! So we wanted to talk about the game, why we're enjoying it, some of the new aspects over Hades the first, and just generally go 'Ooh, this game is fun, innit?'. Not a complex podcast this week.
    James isn't here, so Nate makes up some hardware news that's very exciting and yet disturbing, while he does have a mythology-themed mini game in the tower of jocularity. Plus: the games we've been playing this week, including a cute survival horror and RimWorld, still. Also, Nate asks me to explain what the hap was heckening with Helldivers 2, and if Joel remains safe.

    S3 Episode 17: a patch of patches

    S3 Episode 17: a patch of patches

    Over the past while a few gams have had post-launch patches, the exemplars being Starfield and Stardew valley, which have post-launch patches of different kinds and for different reasons. We take some time on the Electronic Wireless Podcast to talk about this patch of patches, and what it was like in the good ol' days, where a broken game came out and stayed broken, gosh darn it!
    Nate isn't here today, which means I can make fun of him for owning fish, or whatever it is he does, but in his stead James steps up with an RGB lighting-themed game where I have to guess what accessories people stuck lights on to turn into gamer accessories. This is because Razer stuck RGB lights on a pandemic mask and are in trouble over it now. Naughty Razer. Plus, we talk about the games we're playing right now, and dish you up some juicy recommendations at the end of the show.

    S3 Episode 16: the new hobbit life sim and our favourite The Lord Of The Rings games

    S3 Episode 16: the new hobbit life sim and our favourite The Lord Of The Rings games

    This week saw the first (small) look at the new and upcoming Hobbit-themed cosy life sim Tales Of The Shire, plus the news that Embracer group is splitting into three, including a Middle-earth And Friends subsection. We spend some time talking about The Lord Of The Rings games we'd like to see, plus our favourite Rings games from days gone by (and also Gollum, and also we do impressions of Gollum).
    Nate has been playing an impressive number of games, including one that did not allow him to invent the stick and therefore hampered his progress. We also talk about AI NPCs again, because one of them tried to get James drunk. Plus: some lovely recommendations to round off your weekly pod (one of them is a long life meat product).

    S3 Episode 15: everyone loves Fallout and the Fallout TV show!

    S3 Episode 15: everyone loves Fallout and the Fallout TV show!

    Here at the Electronic Wireless Show podcast we're nothing if not ready to jump on a bandwagon, and the hottest wagon in town right now is the Fallout TV show. We've watched varying amounts of Amazon's new adaptation of Bethesda's favourite post-apocalyptic RPG baby, so there are some mild (but not total) spoilers within, as we talk about the show, the show biffing the leaving-the-vault-moment, the best things about the games, the Righteous Gemstones, and how good Walton Goggins is just, like, in general.

    S3 Episode 14: battle royales, Vampire Survivor, and trend chasing

    S3 Episode 14: battle royales, Vampire Survivor, and trend chasing

    This week League Of Legends teased a PvE Vampire Survivors-like mode, and recently World Of Warcraft revealed a limited time PvEvP battle royale with pirates. What's going on? Is chasing trends a bit of a risky click? Should Age Of Empires II get a battle royale mode? All these questions and no more, just these ones, are discussed in this week's episode of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast.
    Plus: I am cursed by scaffolding again, and we recommend some lovely things that aren't video games, as is our way.

    S3 Episode 13: all work and no pay? Let's talk about free games

    S3 Episode 13: all work and no pay? Let's talk about free games

    This week you could get two horror games for free! Rental and Content Warning both launched for nada (albeit for a couple of days only in the case of the latter). Nate and I have both done work for free in the hope someone would retrospectively pay for it. Is it worth it? Is this how the internet is going to work from now on? Plus, what are some of our favourite free games? There are a bunch.
    We also talk about the science that suggests people process visual information at wildly different speeds (I know I shouldn't have said that some people just 'see more fasterer' or whatever reductive thing I said, please don't email me), Nate teaches me about some weird cryptids, and we recommend some sweet non-video game stuff, as per usual.

A Truly Entertaining Show

I’ve enjoyed each iteration of hosts, and while Mathew is truly missed, the bantelopes are still going strong. The byplay is excellent, and I truly appreciate the time the hosts take to bring a bit a lighthearted happiness to life.

The essence of why I love games - and RPS

I’ve been listening to the Electronic Wireless Show for well over a year, and while I certainly miss Matthew (RPS in peace), the new trio of Alice, Nate and James hasn’t missed a beat. The new format is fantastic, the Tower of Jocularity is a worthy successor to the Cavern of Lies, and I actually understand hardware on the strength of numerous metaphors involving cowboys and beans. Just as good as ever, highly recommend. (PS - best podcast music ever.)

Pretty Dang Good

Have been reading RPS for a long time now and decided to give this pod a listen. Highly recommend. Great accents with great content.
