Graham, Tom S and Chris launch a lifetime of fandom directly at the modest target area of Star Wars: Squadrons, setting off a chain reaction of space-spooge. Also: Zelda meets gacha in Genshin Impact.

  • Baldur’s Gate 3 has entered early access. It’s quite crashy at the moment, but you can befriend a walking brain. You’ll know in your heart whether to install it now or wait a year.
  • Steam’s Autumn Festival has ripened and tumbled from the tree. Will it be a mighty payload of fructose or dispense a mouthful of wasps?
  • Much anticipated tactical biffer Fights In Tight Spaces has a demo, as does whatever this is: Watch Me Stream My Mental Breakdown. There will be Bad Warhammer takes for weeks, too! Hurrah!
  • Genshin Impact is Very Zelda. But if you’re gonna steal, steal from the Breathst! Is that a pun? Very almost! For some reason, you have to get it from their site, via a bespoke launcher, rather than via Steam.
  • Please. Please. Feed Chris all the space microtransactions to sustain Star Wars: Squadrons. He’ll buy a Frisk Funko Pop if necessary. Anything.
  • Master the thrust with your Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4!
  • Signs of the Sojourner has a really interesting and elegant take on conversation-as-game.
