Podcast: Electronic Wireless Show talks Life Is Strange: Before the Storm and XCOM 2: War of the Chosen


Who owns those odd voices? It’s the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show and guess what – we’re all in the same room, with our actual bodies. Unprecedented. And there’s a special guest this week too. Chris Bratt of Eurogamer joins us to talk about the alien-murdering of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. It’s a Brattcast! While Pip has been playing teen angst drama-llama Life Is Strange: Before the Storm and I’m still trying to discover an impossibly powerful attack in Absolver. Come listen.

You can listen above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later. There’s no theme this episode either. But we promise to get back to normal soon!

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

    But where’s the picture of the audio tub?

  2. TheCze says:

    I came here for a picture of the mysterious audio tub and was greatly disappointed!

  3. TheApologist says:

    Audio tub

    Also: I have never heard Chris Bratt say anything without sighing and shaking my head. I think it is because I am now fantastically old.

    Audio tub?

  5. R. Totale says:

    Is it me or is the closing theme at a higher pitch than normal?

    Yknow, until this week I had always sort of unconsciously assumed/imagined that there were some initial, core group of RPS founders who all knew each other from “uni” as you guys call it, or some other such thing. This revelation about the rarity of yr proximity to one another kinda makes me wonder about the actual origin story/creation myth..? I’d be curious to know.

    • Zorganist says:

      As far as I recall the RPS origin myth is that Alec, John, Jim, and Karen Gillan knew each other at PC Gamer, and then started RPS after growing tired of working for PC Gamer. Karen then left to play Thor in a Marvel comic series, Jim left to build robots, and John and Alec began surrounding themselves with youngsters in the desperate belief that doing so would slow their inexorable march to irrelevancy and death.

      Something along those lines anyway.
