26: Always the shotgun / DOOM (2016) & Yoku’s Island Express

In which two very similar games are discussed and dissected.

After hearing an extensive list of things Tom doesn’t like about DOOM, learn why Paul feels that, for all its exciting gunplay, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as punching a demon in the face.

Next up, after a very brief and exceedingly polite disagreement over whether the Yoku’s Island Express soundtrack is catchy or not catchy (#TeamCatchy), your hosts bemoan having to play yet another platformer / pinball hybrid with a dung beetle protagonist.

25: Lofty expectations / Dropmix, Pneuma: Breath of Life, Resident Evil, Samus Returns, The Playroom VR & 140

In which your hosts continue last week’s conversation about the games they’ve played through in recent weeks.

You’ll hear how Harmonix fared with their foray into tabletop gaming, why taking ‘What Should I Play Next?’ advice from a stranger on the internet isn’t always advisable, how two old remakes of two even older games manage to retain the magic decades after the fact, why a free game continues to be PSVR’s true killer app, and why 140 is something of an overlooked gem (again).

Games discussed:
Dropmix
Pneuma: Breath of Life
Resident Evil (2002 REmake)
Metroid: Samus Returns
The Playroom VR
140
