Alex, Chris and Tom S discuss a brief spate of late-March game announcements before getting into Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. That’s it. It’s mostly Sekiro.

We’re very keen to avoid Sekiro spoilers in this episode, but we do talk about themes and mechanics and, in one case, a few details about different environments – but not much! Less than you’d see in the game’s trailer, as it happens.

Plus: PC gaming tech advice up to and including why an owl shouldn’t officiate your wedding, meditations on the value of this entire accursed enterprise, grunting sounds, SONC HEDG regret, and more.

It’s a low-hanging flute, but that doesn’t mean we can’t toot it for 45 minutes.
