Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talks Inside, Foxhole and TV show adaptations

ews12pod1

What sound drips forth from the audio tubes? It’s just the latest RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. Our topic this week is: “which TV show deserves a good videogame adaptation?” Maybe you feel Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Whatever could make a good survival game? Or perhaps The Handmaid’s Tale could be a great FPS? Probably not. Graham is convinced that road trip anime Kino’s Journey is a contender, while I’m yearning for a good The Wire or Wolf Hall game full of intrigue and politicking.

Meanwhile, Graham caught up with the sad boy brigade and played Limbo follow-up Inside, while I’ve been hunkering down in the top-down persistent multiplayer war of Foxhole. It’s just us two this week because Adam is gone and Pip has been possessed by a flu demon that makes her voice sound like it’s trapped in hell.

You can listen above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later.

You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts. Our happy music is by Jack de Quidt.

    The accents on this are great fun. “It needs to be, like, a high-sold”. A what now? Oh, Household. What on earth.

    Having watched LPs of it, I agree with Brendan on Inside. It looks kind of over the top attempt at unsettling imagery without actual purpose. Just being there.

    Also was this up at an unusual time for Podcast? I feel like it’s usually Thursday afternoon in USA.

    Also, feel better, Pip!

      +1 for the accents. Took me a while to get what these “key-aims” were all about.

        I kept hearing Guillaumes. On the other hand, it felt like I was eavesdropping on some local gentlemen in front of a roaring pub fireplace in Dumfries. Pleasant times.

    The Moomins?!

    I learned to avoid The Moomins early on, as the animated series that aired in Finland had the most annoying theme song. I could never get through that to actually watch the show. Still a good idea for a game, though. Just don’t put that song in there..
