There’s a logjam down the River Take and Chris and Alex join Tom F to help clear it, smashing through Monster Train, Overboard!, Slipways, Unexplored 2, Necromunda: Hired Gun, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Subnautica Below Zero, and Griftlands. Where the river meets the sea, Chris and Alex drown some old games they once loved.
- Chris has been playing Monster Train, for you but not himself.
- God hates you in Overboard!, a mystery game in which you are the murderer from the makers of 80 Days.
- Slipways is a microstrategy game about constructing trade empires in space, released this week.
- Unexplored 2 is a roguelike RPG that’s procedurally generated from top to bottom. Alex spoke to its developer many years ago about the design of Unexplored 1.
- Chris continues his exploration of alright Warhammer games with the profoundly ’90s Necromunda: Hired Guns.
- Make your own Cyber-Mastiff – out of an actual dog.
- Tom has revisited Mass Effect via the recent Legendary Edition and strongly recommends repeating yourself.
- Subnautica Below Zero is a strong reminder of how good Subnautica is.
- Story-driven RPG chafes up against roguelite deck-building in Griftlands, which has now graduated from early access.
- Alex saves the spiciest of takes for Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus.
- Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2.
