In which flesh-cubes are fondly recalled. Plus: the No Man’s Sky hype-rocket achieves escape velocity, Marsh is perplexed by CounterStrike’s workshop, Tom S takes a tumble in Tomb Raider and Tom F rifles through Costume Quest’s wardrobe.

And not only that! We revisit our favourite tech demos, talk about supernatural family-fixing game The Novelist, and slur our way through an extended discussion of Charlie Brooker’s excellent TV programme, How Videogames Changed The World.

Show notes

Our intro music is from the track Clambake by The Mandibles. Many of the band members now tour as Count Bobo And The Bullion.
