The Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 124: the best maps in games special

Excuse me do you have the directions to a good podcast episode? Actually, I don't know why I'm asking: here at the Electronic Wireless Show we practically wrote the map. Ahahaha. Yes, episode 124 is all about the best maps in games, which means it is mostly an excuse to talk about Hitman. Nate enthuses mightily about Red Dead Redemption 2, and I get a…

The Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 123: the whales/Wales/wails special

It's the new year! And, like everyone else, as the first weeks of January creak by, we turn our thoughts to Sir Anthony Hopkins, two versions of whom join us on this week's Electronic Wireless Show podcast. Pick your favourite Hopkins in the comments. The Anthonies' surprise appearance was precipitated by this week's theme, via listener Malcolm, who emailed in with the suggestion 'best whales'.…

The Electronic Wireless Show podcast: the Christmas 2020 specialette

The RPS podcast network (comprising this podcast and The PC Gaming Weekspot) didn't want to leave you bereft over the break, so we've got a little Christmas Eve treatette for you, stuffed right down in your filthy stocking. Yes, it's a mini podcast - by which I mean about 40 minutes, which is actually quite maxi - where we just have a little chat about…

Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 121: the 2020 awards special

Welcome, gentle listener, to the 2020 Electronic Wireless Show podcast game awards special! No, not an entire show about Geoff Keighley's cavalcade of trailers (and some awards sometimes), but a bumper episode where we make up our own award categories, and then give them to the deserving games of 2020. These include The Ronseal Award for doing what it says on the tin (podcast not…

Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 120: the cyberpunk special

This week sees the triumphant return of Nate - or should I say The Electricity Cop, as this episode of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast goes down to Cyberpunk 2077 town. Matthew has played 70 hours of that game that everyone is talking about, so we ask him 20 questions about it (or, well, like, ten-ish, probably). These range from "what games is it most…

Podcast episode 119: the fashion in games special

Today we hit the yearly milestone of deciding it was finally cold enough to turn the heating on. You hold out as long as you can, obviously. Not made of money. Perhaps we could have lasted longer if we'd had very fashionable coats made out of the skin of a rare bat monster, such as you can hunt and kill in Monster Hunter: World. Yes,…

Feature: Feat. two people who don't know loads about JRPGs

Podcast episode 118: the best JRPGs special

I don't want anyone to be disappointed, but Nate is away this week so you've got an Alice 'n' Matthew special for The Electronic Wireless Show podcast, since I couldn't draft in a third body in time. Nevertheless, this week we had a grand old time, albeit one with less chat about animals. In fact, we manage to talk about games quite a lot! Historically…

Hearthstone’s Battlegrounds mode is a weaponised jumble sale

"Right then," snarls a puce-faced ogre of a man, after drinking the last crumbs from a bag of roast beef Monster Munch, "the dog or the spoon?". And sure enough, there in front of him, on the battered plasterer's table that serves as his desk, is a blurrily-painted porcelain dog statuette, and a bent tablespoon. If you give the big man a quid, he'll throw…

Podcast episode 117: the best small details in games special

This week, dear listeners, the Electronic Wireless Show podcast urges you to think small, as we take a look at our favourite little details in games that don't need to be there, and yet are. The strange Easter eggs, the loving little inclusions, the proverbial mint popped on the digipillow of your entertainment. Matthew talks about Red Dead Redemption 2, obviously, the big mass entertainment-liker.…

Podcast episode 116: the best food in games special

Welcome again, dear listener, to the Electronic Wireless Show, the best and most solidly on-topic PC gaming podcast the world has ever seen. This week, we invite you to be our guest, take a seat at our dinner table, and prepare for a hearty helping of chat. About food. Because this week the topic is all the best food in games, you see. I hope…

Podcast episode 115: the wintery games special

After the rip-roaring success that was last week's episode of The Electronic Wireless Show, where we talked about autumnal games and Matthew and I almost came to blows, this week's podcast is a sequel. Yes, this week we are discussing our favourite wintery games. There is, obviously, a discussion about what constitutes 'wintery', because I think a game being snowy isn't enough. Surprisingly, it is…

Feature: This one goes off the rails, not going to lie

Podcast episode 114: the autumnal games special

I won't lie to you listener, the ratio of games to not-games chat on this week's episode of the Electronic Wireless Show is pretty... it's pretty low. This may be the least amount of games chat we've ever done. Nevertheless: here is a podcast. This time it is about autumnal games - not games about the season, but games that are cosy, that are good…

Podcast episode 113: the dinosaurs special

Yesterday Nate observed that he is increasingly becoming a single issue voter and that single issue is "beasts". This week, therefore, the podcast is about the best dinosaur games. There is, of course, some haggling over what constitutes a dinosaur (does it include all birds and some robots?).Expect a lot of discussion of various incarnations of Jurassic Park, as you might expect. There is also…

Podcast episode 112: the excuse to talk about Baldur’s Gate 3 special

Alice Bee is back from holiday in time for a massive CRPG to enter early access, so this episode is supposedly about our favourite companions in games, but is really mostly about Baldur's Gate III, Larian's massive new Dungeons & Dragons-themed, reawakening-a-classic fantasy game. She and Matthew have both played a bit of it (Matthew a lot more than her), but we have a chinwag…

Podcast episode 111: the death special

Alice is on holiday, which means it falls to me to lead Nate and Matthew in cheerful conversation. Unfortunately I've been playing a lot of Spelunky 2 over the past two weeks, which means all our cheery conversation in this week's Electronic Wireless Show is about death. We talk about our favourite deaths in videogames, whether they be the systems-driven demise of a Crusader Kings…

Podcast episode 110: the ‘if you could have one superpower’ special

In a change of pace for the Electronic Wireless Show this week, Nate is on holiday and we're joined by special guest VidBud Colm Ahern to discuss our favourite special powers from video games. The title is actually a misnomer, because I immediately go on to say that really we're talking about weird or supernatural special powers, not super powers like wot The Avengers have.…

Podcast episode 109: the living a normal life special… live!

This week, we at the Electronic Wireless Show were digital innovators and did our podcast live and on camera as part of PAX X EGX. It went really well and there were no slight technical hitches where my camera kept resizing itself on screen for a bit near the start. Our theme was simulation games, partly so I could talk about The Sims a lot,…

Podcast episode 108: the movie tie-ins special

This week the podcast moves out of Nate's dad wheelhouse and into Matthew's film wheelhouse. It's a bumper and bumpy ride this week, as we discuss video game adaptations of them there Hollywood talkies! This does end up involving quite a lot of Star Wars chat, because there are so many Star Wars games. Tangents this week include Nate going on about Gimli a lot,…

How fast can you die in Crusader Kings 3?

Yesterday, I dived into the magical world of themed Crusader Kings III playthroughs, with this sobering exploration of what a man's life might look like if he cared for nothing except banging giants. I may return to my nightmare re-imagining of C12th Estonia at some point, but not today. You see, today, there's science to be done.CK3 is, emphatically, all about planning for the long…

Podcast episode 107: the Dad Games special

This week the podcast truly is the daddy of all podcasts, as we decide to talk all things dad in games. This of course means we must first establish what a dad game is. Are we talking about games that dads will like, or games about dads? And what is the crossover between the two?Eventually we settle on having a lovely chat about some of…
