Can it really have been so long? It seems so. It’s episode 41! Jim and John gather once more to discuss matters of gaming, philosophy, and quite how tired everyone is. We’re all so tired. Enjoy John’s croaky voice, Jim’s pretty hair, and thoughts on shooters, Macs and the lack of gossiping murderer-based games. Plus bonus exclusive interview with Zombie Cow!
So we casually chat about the events of the past, the games we’ve been playing, and our plans for a national RPS holiday.
Naturally this means we discuss local alcoholics, uses for Lara Croft’s legs, and the magic of free things. There’s Max Payne nonsense, our interest in the new Tomb Raider, and questions on whether Portal was designed to look like a Mac. Then John reveals his balanced, reasoned position on Mac users.
We consider Mass Effect 2, now Jim’s playing it, which naturally takes us on to the nature of how philosophy is written. We wonder in which direction the FPS could head next. Then say goodbye to half our listeners.
Bob Came In Pieces DLC and the excellent new Sam & Max episode are spoken of. Then Jim outlines plans for more RPS community games. We wonder at how little corruption we perform, what our favourite fascist superheroes would be like, and why Tidying Up Games are the best of all games. And why Terry Wogan should be a voice actor in every game. In fact, here’s your bonus Zombie Cow interview question:
RPS: Why haven’t you got Terry Wogan doing a voice in your game?
DM: I didn’t think to ask him, I’m afraid. Why would I get him to voice anything? I don’t understand. Do you think he’ll be terribly (Terrybly) put out?
RPS: There’s no way you could have known. We decided it this afternoon. But still, why didn’t you?
DM: I didn’t feel Sir Terry’s vocal range was quite right for any of the characters in the game.
RPS: I’m not sure if I want to play your game any more.
DM: Fine. I’ll put in an Oirish filter on all the voices.
