Ram get mocked for playing ‘Project Eden’ an ps2 port from 2001 by Core Design. Bard looks at Endless Legend a 4x fantasy game which leads onto a discussion about the good and bad parts of 4x game. Skazz update us on his challenge by completing one game already ‘Shovel knight’. Bard who read the book, and Ram who hasn’t, discuss the latest Hobbit film and its excellent mounts. Skazz carries on tradition of  recommending game hes not played with Elite Dangerous and the re-release of Suikoden 1+2. We pay tribute the ‘Father of Video games’ and discuss shooting Skazz

Notes

A classic, underrated game, at least according to Ram – Project Eden

Bard 4x fix in Endless Legend

Skazz challenge update, Shovel Knight is now struck off the list

A film with Stags, Ram and horses, oh a big battle too – The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. And if your having trouble identifying all the dwarfs, here a handy chart.

A classic remake that Skazz recommends without having played it – Elite Dangerous

Another classic re-release with Suikoden 1 + 2

Meet the man who started it all, Ralph H. Baer the father of videogames. You may also remember his other classic with Simon

Welcome to another well planned and put together podcast. Skazz discuss playing Smash Brother on the 3DS and his through on the Wii U version and controller support on steam. Ram plays Alpha Centauri and shows what would happen if he was to became a dictator. Bard talks about Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and blows Ram minds with the logic of the universe, and then onto more wholesome task with Farming Simulator 15 and how Ram’s hacked it plus further Euro Truck simulator 2 adventures. We discuss the dark side of digital distribution and how the internet will help prevent history being lost, Bard talks to a cat and enjoys a more intelligent conversation and we end up in hysterics.

Notes

WiiU or 3DS, how will you play Smash Brothers

Explore your inner dictator with Sid Myers: Alpha Centauri

Illogical robots with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Destroy many trees with Farming Simulator 15

Get confused by which games you can play with PlayStation Vita TV

Rand(Nerds); Episode 23

This episode we start by talking crap from the very beginning including how were all ill with possible cases of ebolia, Bard saves the day by actually playing some games such as Styx: Master of Shadows, a game similar to thief with lots of spitting. And X-com, a game unlike thief and featuring no spitting. We look forward to Portal 2: Tag and the new smash brothers game leading into a discussion on how family friendly Nitendo is. We also talk about the embarrassment of owning an XBox One and what would temp us into installing Origin, creating our own version of the archers and where indie games are going wrong.

Notes

Play as a spitting goblin in Styx: Master of shadows

Take on aliens with low resources with X-com Enemy Unknown

A good looking fan made mode with Portal 2: Tag

See whats all the fuss about with the Smash Brother Nintendo Direct

The worst X-com with X-Com: The Bureal

Rand(Nerds); Episode 22

In this episode Bard has to go solo in a multiplayer game as no one else has played it despite having copy, Ram get creeped out with Alien: isolation right before we are attacked by aliens ourselves in the form of Skazz’s cat. Bard also looks at Freedom Planet. We look forward to Hotline Miami 2 and Kingdom Come: Deliverance a realistic medieval RPG. We also talk about how Hyperkin have been caught out plagiarizing with the Retron 5 We discuss both bad and good Alien films, the downside to close combat on laundrette bills, how none of us really like Fable, and why Paris is like London but worst

Notes

Have some friends? Try Gauntlet

Or if you prefer to to be scared senseless, fight xeonmorph in Alien Isolation

Or more lighthearted with Freedom Planet

Or indeed, massive violence with Hotline Miami 2

Or if non of the above, and fancy a sword for a mere $5000, look for the upcoming Kingdom Come: Deliverance

We wont support plagiarism for Retron 5, instead look at RetroArch

Yes it does exists, the ‘performance art’ of EXTREME ironing

Beware getting trapped, Tv tropes Conservation of Ninjutsu and Uncanny Valley

relive nostalgia with the PS1 start up

Rand(Nerds); Episode 21

In this episode, which features a new angle for our video viewers thanks to some new hardware, we discuss Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Skazz and Ram have a strange game swap when Skazz learns the joy of long distance driving in a big truck and develops road manners, and Ram starts with minecraft and how he performs massive land clearance to increase his sheep empire. Bard looks at the slightly disappointing Hyrule Warriors and a new Gauntlet game. We find out who’s the most obsessed with steam, with perhaps some surprising conclusions. Plus, how Skazz has been banned before starting a game

Notes

We mentioned it last month, well bard played it: Donkey Kong Tropical freeze

TheSuffolkRam collection of games, the crap Fist of Awesome, the hard PID, and the great classic MDK

You too can have your own environmentally damaging sheep farm in Minecraft

Or live out your dreams of driving a big rig across Europe with Eurotruck Simulator 2

Have your own podcast streaming laptop with the Asus G550

An arcadey mech simulator with Hawken

Notes

The pinnacle of gaming, driving a 40 ton truck across Europe with Euro Truck Simulator 2.

We twice mention Bayonetta and fail to properly discuss it

Take control of a Japanese girl band with Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

Experience the cold on a tropical island with Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

Skazz recommends: Classic Game Room Anniversary DVD

We look at the modern technology Apple Watch, iPhone 6 and Google Glass

The weird of camouflage, pink plans, black and white ships, and yes, a ship disguised as an island

You spend all your time descending into a volcano with a GoPro only to take a selfie

Yea! We’re one year old! We celebrate with cake which almost ends in disaster as is the Rand(nerds); tradition. We look at Metro: Last Light, Dishonored, Monster Hunter, The Wonderful 101, Portal 2 and Minecraft. We talk about how steam is killing the future of the high street. Bard talks about Planet Hulk, other superhero movies and story lines. We look at the new, as yet unnamed 3DS. TheSuffolkRam look back at The Walking Dead season 2 after the release of final episode featuring spoilers. We invent words, discuss how games are terrible at endings and multiple choices in game

Notes

A sequel so good we made up words Metro: Last Light, and watch TheSuffolkRam’s Lets play of it

A game TheSuffolkRam likes and Skazz and Bard hate Dishonored

And a game Bard and Skazz love: Monster Hunter

Odd look superheros with The Wonderful 101

A classic game with Portal 2

A strangely addictive block carving game with Minecraft

Why you should be more careful shooting mutants into space with Planet Hulk

How to make robots trust each other in portal 2
