Welcome to episode 141, Kicking off with discussing of our preferred lockdown supermarkets, and negotiation with Covid-19
Skazz kicks off with discussing the now western relase of Phantasy Star Online 2. A games that has been out in Japan for appormently 8 years. They’ve made a number of changes to the game, which Skazz is less then please about.
TheSuffolkRam has been playing very Deus Ex feeling cyberpunk game with Observer, a mostly walking simulator with some survival horror elements. A really deep dark word involving mind rape, nanobots that eat people, and a big evil corporation.
We talk about out newest feature, the Rand(Nerds); Game Night. We’ve played a couple of games. A co-op puzzle game We Were Here in which skazz freezes to death, drowns, and gets stabbed. whilst Ram gets murdered. Plus how we got totally owned in Hunt Showdown.
Ram talks about his continuing delve into HOTAS gaming, and his strange key configs.
We return for another of our games nights, this week trying out recent shooter Hunt Showdown.
We take on the roles of hunters trying to track down a variety of strange monsters in a horror wild west setting. Along the way we have to deal with strange creatures and other players who are also after the quarry and are quite happy to kill and steal to win.
This is our first try of the game, TheSuffolkRam has just player the tutorial mission, Skazz hasn’t played it at all. Watch us stumble our way around and get owned by other players. But overall we still had a blast and look forward to trying our luck again.
