Alex, Tom F and Graham muse on the eternal E3 news, marvel at itchio’s BLM bundle, lament pyromantic stealth game Wildfire, adore deck-builder Monster Train and flail further in Half-Life: Alyx.
- IGN’s eternal E3.
- The Escapist’s indie stream.
- Sony’s PS5 stream. I found it unconscionably boring, to my surprise and dismay.
- Undaunted: The Heretic One is, you know, the Heretic one.
- And Trepang2 is the FEAR one.
- The incredible Black Lives Matter bundle.
- John Walker has been doing a good job of picking out gems from the bundle.
- Wide Ocean Big Jacket, aka My Big Wide Open Morning Jacket. It’s in the bundle.
- One of the previous games from the same dev, Little Party.
- Be a cutesy teen bird in A Short Hike, and enjoy it, just to spite Alex. It’s in the bundle.
- Not mentioned on the pod, but puzzle game Ethereal is really interesting. It’s in the bundle.
- If Found is not in the bundle, but it’s nice.
- Quadrilateral Cowboy. It’s in the bundle.
- Pen and paper RPGs are to be found in the bundle too: e.g. the EXCELLENT Band of Blades (and the fantastically loopy Troika).
- Kids, Minit, Celeste are also games that are in the bundle. But why not look for yourself? In the bundle.
- Wildfire a sneaky, flamey game that is, alas, a bit of a damp squib.

- Choo choo, motherfuckers.
- Is Monster Train too much fun?
- Your strict and loving parent, Slay the Spire.
- The Peggle of Slay-the-Spire-likes, Overdungeon.
