It’s out with the old and in with the new. Or maybe vice versa. Chris plays Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a new expansion for the older New Order, Tom S sees Kerbal Space Program come of age, and Marsh falls over himself in physics-heavy RPG Exanima.
Plus! What 90s platforming series have to tell us about the plight of the Czech serf class in the 19th century; when no interaction is better than a trivial interaction; and the initial instance of the instance.
- Let me be abundantly clear.
- Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a oddly regressive standalone expansion to the freshly inventive Wolfenstein: The New Order.
- Chris did a (really rather generous) review of The Old Blood and people who angrily disagree with his opinion don’t think he’s old enough, or something.
- Kerbal Space Program has finally emerged from its multi-year beta chrysalis, and everyone loves it.
- Sometime pod-guest and PC Gamer wordperson Phil Savage wrote a review of Kerbal Space Program.
- Exanima is a standalone prelude to Kickstarted RPG Sui Generis with a very interesting physics system behind its combat.
- Marsh’s write-up of Exanima, plus very informative comments about Buddhism’s approach to mind-body duality.
- Werner the Herzog.
- I haven’t listened to it again, but I’m willing to bet our earlier episode “Stuffed In The Pain Funnel” has something to say about QTEs.
