In which Chris, Graham and Marsh are joined by RPS co-founder John Walker to talk about Shadow of Mordor, Sherlock Holmes, Ethan Carter, FIFA 15, Shadowrun Returns, and somehow – across multiple subjects – various dads.

Also featuring an extended section on Les Miserables, an even more extended section on BioWare, and at least one substantial digression about Iceland. Then, a reader asks us why we don’t drink any more – entirely too late to prevent terrible irony.

You can email us at or follow us on Twitter at @crateandcrowbar. If you’d like to tweet us individually, Marsh, Chris, Graham and John.

The episode will be available on our YouTube channel soon.

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