Hey Folks! Tonight we dive into a few topics that we did not have time for last week. First off Grace shares their adventures in Wytchwood, a game largely about crafting interesting potions. From there we talk briefly about first impressions with a wildly different Pokemon game, Arceus. From there we talk a bit about Chorus which dives into a longer topic about games that try different things without fully committing to them. This brings forth a long discussion about minigames and breaking up the rhythm of a game without doing it poorly. Kodra talks a bit about Celeste.smc which is a version of Celeste playable on the Super Nintendo. Then we wrap things up with a quick discussion about God of War on the PC and Bel’s thoughts in playing through it.

Tonight we are trying to get back into the swing of regularly recording shows. It was a bit of an odd week because no one saw Microsoft acquiring Activision Blizzard King before it was announced. We talk about this a bit, and Game Pass… then Bel shares a whole bunch of games that he has been playing from Game Pass. We also talk a bit about a game called OneShot that Kodra has been spending some time playing.

Hey folks it is that time again, time for the Games of the Year show. As is often the case we ended up with way too many things to talk about and could in no way fit them into a single show. As a result this week I bring you the continuation of last week's show as we run through the second batch of games. We covered twelve games in the first show and we cover the last seven games in this show. As you can tell when we go further into the list more active discussion happens as there is a bit more overlap in the titles.
Without further waffling, I bring you the second round of discussion.

Hey folks it is that time again, time for the Games of the Year show. As is often the case we ended up with way too many things to talk about and could in no way fit them into a single show. As a result I will bring you part one this week and next week it will conclude with part two. We have nineteen games to discuss this year, which means we left some ten honorable mentions on the cutting room floor just because there was nowhere near enough time. This is probably the most diverse list of games that we have compiled because as a group there was not a whole lot of overlap in the titles we played this year.
Without further waffling I bring you the first round of discussion.
