In which we don’t talk about the Time War. Tom returns from Indiecade with myriad thoughts on, er, Myriad, the caveman japes of Tribal And Error – and much more! Chris and Marsh stem the Vermintide and ruminate on the conclusion of Life Is Strange.

Plus: Chris’s further, less effusive thoughts on Overwatch; what cartoons have to tell us about the location of elephant mouths; when football is morally inexcusable; the least appropriate music to play during a global pandemic; much discussion of rods of variously mythical and medicinal kinds; and our favourite in-universe explanations of respawning.
