The traveller returns! Marsh, Alex and Tom F reunite to spin a tapestry about the swinging spider platformer Webbed, to swath the tactical satisfaction of WH40k: Battlesector in silk, and to suck the liquidised Deathloop through their mouth orifices. Also discussed: Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Tights In Fight Spaces, and Darth Maul naked in a shower.
- Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new turn-based strategy game from the designer of XCOM, but with superheroes, cards and a lot of knockback.
- Fights In Tight Spaces is another turn-based game with cards, but it’s not fully out yet like we said, it’s still in early access.
- Quantic Dream are rumoured to be making a Star Wars game, which is compelling
- Marsh has been playing Webbed, a lovely physics platformer about a scuttling, swinging, web-spinning spider.
- The scifi novel Marsh recommends is Children Of Time. It’s also got spiders in, you see.
- Warhammer 40K: Battlesector is a blandly named turn-based game that nevertheless captures the spirit of tabletop Warhams.
- Deathloop is from the makers of Dishonored, but instead of rewarding non-violence and stealth, it offers you ample excuses to kill everyone you meet.
- Alex references this article about Deathloop invasions by Jeremy Peel.
- The currently popular version of Magic the Gathering for home computer is MtG: Arena.
