Chris, Tom S and Marsh deliver the world’s very first takes that anyone has ever had about Elden Ring. Salute the skill of Bumbo, fear the knife-eagle’s fire-bollock, regret the crafting system and wonder, “Why is it always behind?”

  • Are show notes even necessary for this episode? Elden Ring is the new game from From Software, at least partially attributable to Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R. R. Martin. From Software also made Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III, Bloodborne and Sekiro – games which share many hallmarks with Elden Ring. But Elden Ring’s got a horsey.
  • That’s the show note. Farewell!
