Episode 11: Uncharted 4, Stellaris, To The Moon and Danerys Nudes!
Danny's gonna level with you: Danny loves Uncharted 4. The final offering of Naughty Dog's seminal Uncharted series featuring the swarthy adventureface, Nathan Drake, is discussed at length, including persistent beard stubble, and the most ridiculous interactive cut scenes in video games like ever.
We talk about the latest episode of Game of Thrones, and the return of Danerys' super move, not to mention the fact that FINALLY two Stark children have encountered each other since that fateful day they all left Winterfell. Also, Jon very closely and meticulously inspects screenshots of the mother of dragons for evidence of photoshopping.
We talk a bit about an old-school 16-bit adventure game, To The Moon, with a rich story and engaging music. And Jon and Shaun geek out over a little-known and now really well-known game on Steam called Stellaris, which is racking up downloads and plays, and gets a little redonk as to the world-building, player options and procedural development.
Episode 12: Doom, Stellaris, Total Warhams, and Kuato has a Hairpiece
Episode 12 delves into some soul-searching and deeply moving discussion as to whether or not Kuato's receeding hairline in Total Recall is the result of friction, or normal mutant-pattern baldness. Semi-related (in that it takes place on Mars, we talk about DOOM, the apparent problems with PC audio, and some other differences of opinion. Also, DOOT!
We also bounce around some other Bethesda favorites, in particular the Dishonored franchise, and the problems with pointless player-character morality systems. Jon and Shaun are still plowing away at Stellaris, building empires, launching wars, enslaving vassels. You know, the usual.
And, of course, if you're reading this it means Total War: Warhammer War Total War War has already been released, and we'll be giving that game the real business, Oxford rules, in our next episode. Thanks for listening!
