Podcast: The most overlooked games of 2017

Listen now or be forgotten

Let us podcast, lest we forget. The squad of the Electronic Wireless Show chat about some of the most overlooked and underappreciated games of this year. Katharine thinks head-in-a-sack trip to the underworld Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice might qualify, while Adam praises the unsettling tales of Stories Untold. Brendan just wants more people to slap in skinny-person biffing game Absolver. But we've also been playing some other good 'uns, including the magical realist family chronicle What Remains of Edith Finch and naval tactical battler Mare Nostrvm.

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. Much appreciated music is by Jack de Quidt.
