PC gaming discussion with Rock Paper Shotgun's podcasts and audio pieces, including the RPS Electronic Wireless Show

    Ep 104: Mr Animal Peperami

    Ep 104: Mr Animal Peperami

    This week's Electronic Wireless Show is a bit quick and dirty - like a spiced pork meat snack. We loved talking about baddies so much last time that we've done a bit of a lateral move, and have each brought our favourite 'bad' game to the pod-table. Because secretly, all games are good.

    As ever, there is a healthy dose of chat along with our game talk. Nate's watery menagerie is multiplying at an alarming pace because all the animals are having sex, and he is also eating a lot of #BigOats, and basically Matthew and I want to talk about detectives again. Plus: weird old school adverts, KFC, and the return of the return of the Five Nights At Freddy's Book Club!

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 103 - The Worst Villains Ever (By Which We Mean Best)

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 103 - The Worst Villains Ever (By Which We Mean Best)

    This week the podcast talks bad, meaning good, and if we say a villain is bad then we mean they are not good, but bad. Make sense? Of course it does! Yes, we're talking about some of our favourite villains in PC gaming. Some interesting topics come up, including the utility of different kinds of villain, what kinds of villain are good, and whether Dr Eggman is a sad, sad boy.

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 102 - Here's To The Glorious 7s

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 102 - Here's To The Glorious 7s

    This week the Electronic Wireless Show celebrates the 7/10 game. Yes, we know RPS doesn’t have scores but the 7/10 is as much a feeling or a way of life. It’s those games that are a bit jank at the same time as being a bit genius, the ones that you love even though they’re a bit rough around the edges. Plus: more fish anecdotes, and how the TV show Friends could have been improved (the answer isn’t “delete Ross”, sadly).

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 101 - Chiefing Death (a pun)

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 101 - Chiefing Death (a pun)

    We're back! This week, we've reverted to a more traditional gaming podcast format by spending the first five to ten minutes talking about 90s kids' TV shows we watched. Did you miss us?? Remarkably, we do also talk about some video games, to whit: Halo 3 and Death stranding, which are two big beasty release from this week that VidBud Matthew and Nate have been playing. Unfortunately I, Alice, haven't been playing anything new, but is able to provide input - as well as sound effects! Yes, this week also sees the return of the much loved soundboard. Ooh la la!

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 100 - We give PC gaming a score

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 100 - We give PC gaming a score

    Rock Paper Shotgun doesn't do scores - until today! For a very special episode 100 of the Electronic Wireless Show, we've decided to finally ditch coherent critical analysis in favour of the comforting certainty of math(s). Over the course of the episode, Matthew, Nate and special guest host Graham (hi) assign numerical scores to 100 games, and then average out the results to deliver a single, definitive score for the entirety of PC gaming.

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 99 - The best bits from not-E3

    Electronic Wireless Show Ep 99 - The best bits from not-E3

    This week we’re being vaguely topical! Imagine that. Today, because we’ve come through what we might call phase one of the not-E3 livestreams (with phase 2 being Thursday's EA stream and the underway Steam Game Festival) we decided to behave like proper games journalists. We pick out some favourites and standouts from the Guerrilla Collective streams and the PC Gaming show – links to the complete roundups of every trailer and announcement can be found in the show notes.

Fantastic

I’m a simple American with basic sensibilities and I find the unapologetic British banter endlessly charming and endearing. I discovered the RPS channel through their absolutely epic almost-two year long let’s play of Divinity OS2. Matthew and Alice Ligouri are hilarious video hosts and there’s something like 81 hours of excellent entertainment to watch - highly recommend. This podcast is right in that wheelhouse: a really laidback vibe like sitting around with friends having a drink and a good conversation. And that music? I don’t know if it’s original or not but it’s so good, it sets the mood and adds to that British charm. Alice Bell is a great host, Matthew is excellent as always and Nate should be featured in other things a lot more as well. Incredibly funny! Look for the episode where he delivers Witcher 3 lines and the crew has to guess if they’re real or fake. Just a great podcast all around. Keep up the great work!

I like it quite a bit

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