We start up talking about Outlast, we completed our final part of our let’s play and give our final thoughts on the game.

Skazz then talks about Dauntless, the free to play Monster Hunter clone with cross-play, but with some quite bad flaws.

He then moves onto the ‘Dark Souls of Run and Gun shooters’ in cup head, he personally doesn’t find it as tough as everyone says and has some issues with the game style.

TheSuffolkRam has been playing Kona, a walking simulator set in 1970 rural Canada investigating strange going on’s and looking for a murderer.

Moving onto TV, Ram has been watching Amazon Prime’s new series, Picard, 20 years on after the supernova that destroyed Romulus, Picard finds a new reason to go back into space.

Rand(Nerds); Episode 126

Welcome to Episode 126

We kick off with discussing the game we played for Halloween, Outlast, we discuss how a great story can have poor execution and poor environmental storytelling, and how other games do it better. As well as some of the better animation and moments.

TheSuffolkRam starts talking about a game he didn’t end up playing with Bear With Me, an old school style point and click adventure in a Noir style with an interesting premise but some poor writing and design choices.

He then moves onto a more interesting game with Inside, an indie game with both and interesting style and story open to interpretation and some beautiful animation and lighting effects.

He then talks about I Am Monther, a sci-fi film released this year with some fantastic CGI and an old fashioned storyline

Notes:

Cliche survival horror game Outlast. Plus check out our let’s play here

Very old school style point and click adventure in Bear With Me

An excellent example of environmental storytelling in Inside.

Low budget but excellent design with I Am Mother

In case you through lift were terrifying enough, have a look at a machine room-less lift
