Podcast: Every game released in November reviewed very quickly*

 There are too many games. November is over, but it was a big month, and our giant collective digi-trough runneth over with shooters, stabbers and clickers. It’s repulsive and very wasteful, quite frankly. Thankfully, the RPS podcast (aka the Electronic Wireless Show) is here to snort up the good ‘uns and stamp all over the bad ‘uns. This week the pod squad are running…

Podcast: Our early impressions of Artifact

 ID please. Hm. No, sorry, says here you’re into platformers. No entry mate. No, listen, I’m sorry, but this is an episode of the RPS podcast, aka the Electronic Wireless Show, and it specifically says right up there – look – that it’s all about Artifact. You know, the new card game by Valve based on Dota 2. Look, I don’t make the rules,…

Podcast: The best post-apocalyptic games

 The world ended this week. We documented the whole thing. But the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, will not go quietly into the abyss of human history. It's not going to be felled by the atomic blast of Fallout 76. It’s going down screaming. Screaming about the best post-apocalyptic games out there, that is.

Podcast: Of murders and mysteries

 Esteemed friends. I have gathered you here today to speak about a most terrible crime, perpetrated in this very room. Late last night, the RPS podcast, affectionately known to some of you as the Electronic Wireless Show, was found dead beside the divan. No, do not get up Mrs Leathershaw. The cushions have been washed, I assure you. But less clean than those soft…

Podcast: What makes you panic?

 Whoa whoa, calm down, breeeathe. Now, explain it to me slowly. The RPS podcast did what? They talked about the games that make them panic? Hm. That does sound like something those scoundrels of the Electronic Wireless Show would do. They’d probably talk about Subnautica and Duskers and SpyParty. Okay, well stay calm. That’s right. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale. There’s no need to –…

 Can you kick it? Yes, you can. Can you punt a ram? Yes, you can. Can you listen to the RPS podcast, aka the Electronic Wireless Show, as they talk about the best kicks in videogames?

Podcast: The bugs that make us laugh

 Hello, we’ve just released an update for the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. There were quite a few bugs and gltches in it before. But we’ve cleaned up the code and fixed several issues. Mammoths no longer fall from the sky during the intro music, for example. And we’ve sorted out the rat issue. We are still working on the duplicate Alices, however.…

Podcast: What games should get remade?

“There are too many remakes these days,” you say, as you take a deep vape. NO. You are the opposite of correct. The industry has simply not made the right remakes. That’s the opinion of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. Let's talk about it. What would we like to see get resurrected? Apart from Gex 3D, obviously.

Podcast: What is your dream game?

Dreams are for rookies. But the hosts of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, don’t know that. This week, they’re talking about their dream games. John wants a Robinson Crusoe-style survival game that isn’t so punishing to those who can’t reach the good coconuts. Brendan wants an open world talk ‘em up, or a chatty city block with obscene amounts of detail. But we’re…

Let’s talk about some of our favourites.

Podcast: The naughty games we weren’t allowed to play

Psst. I know mum said you weren’t allowed to listen to those hellions on your favourite podcast anymore, but the hosts of the Electronic Wireless Show won’t tell if you don’t.
