Alex, Tom S and Graham retreat from the terrible non-fungible present into the comforting embrace of the past, with the sequel to cult classic Psychonauts, the recent remaster and expansion of Quake, and the last great real-time strategy game, Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance. Also discussed: a good boy, our hoarding instincts, and Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.
- The co-founder of Vine is creating NFTs out of videogame-style loot, without the videogame, and it’s selling for absurd sums of money.

- Japanese games are experiencing something of a renaissance, dominating Steam’s best seller charts for July.
- Psychonauts 2 is out! It’s a fantastic world to explore, blessed with the forgettable platforming we crave.
- Bethesda celebrated the 25th anniversary of Quake by announcing and releasing a remaster which makes it prettier and includes a new expansion and Quake 64.
- Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance remains an unrivalled strategy game experience, and it runs better than ever via Steam.
