In which Marsh, Tom F and Graham welcome special guest Craig Pearson to the graveyard for the traditional bleeding ceremony, and offer up survival sim Rust, multiplayer swordfighter Nidhogg and Just Cause 2 Multiplayer as sacrifices.
Also discussed: the dangerous appeal of Elite: Dangerous, Starsector’s memorable mechanics and less than memorable name, and whether it’ll ever be possible to scare Craig. This week’s episode is a short one because Craig had to catch a bus.
