Podcast: What games did we change our minds about?

Listen two years from now and it'll be good

I heard you don’t like our podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. But have you listened to 76 hours of it yet? Honestly, mate, it opens up after that. The 76-hour mark, that’s when it “clicks”. But I understand if you don’t have the time. Just skip ahead to this week’s episode, in which we’re talking about games about which we changed our minds. Listen in for the platformers we prematurely pooh-poohed and the Souls games that “sucked” before they were super.

John realised the brown caves of Spelunky weren’t so bad after all, when he returned to game years later. Alice B’s feelings on the grim castles of Dark Souls 3 flip-flopped all over the place (current mood: she doesn’t like them). And Brendan’s early scepticism about the Yakuza games was washed away in a torrent of ridiculous Tokyo drama.

We also have time to talk more about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. But also about the Bloodlines sequel. John and Alice recently saw a demo for this vampiric RPG, and they are quietly excited to see how it turns out.

You can listen on Spotify or just 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. Music is by Jack de Quidt, and we have never changed our mind about how good it is.
