Marsh, Chris and Tom S journey through the Moebius-inspired deserts of Sable, bash through the skeleton-filled dungeons of Diablo 2 Resurrected, and call for mother in the little adventures of Battlefield 2042. To close, they trade little kisses with the film adaptation of The Green Knight.

  • Sable is a beautiful, thoughtfully constructed adventure about the three verbs: map, climb and hoverbike.
  • Diablo 2 Resurrected released and is a great game, as per the original, but it could do more to explain to players why it’s fun.
  • Battlefield 2042 has had some open betas ahead of its November release, and it’s been teeing up cool explosions for Chris.
  • The Green Knight is a much-delayed adaptation of the 14th century poem starring Dev Patel.
  • The discussion of the film gets spoilery, but there’s a warning before diving into the muck (and other fluids).
  • We discuss the original poem in some detail, and you can find the original text online for free.
  • No less enduring a text: here’s the Taskmaster/Green Knight meme that Marsh references.
