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…

Feature: If I made a video game I'd put references to noughties Flash cartoons in it too

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.…

I hope…

Feature: I think we might have split the timeline on this one

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…

Feature: Rawr, I guess

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…

Feature: Our favourite full stops.

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.…

Feature: Is this real life?

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,…

Feature: Dad not lest ye be dad'd

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…

Podcast episode 106: the Rezzed Tabletop RPG special

This week we have an extra special treat for you! It does mean we don't talk about PC games at all, though. Well, we do, but we talk about fake ones that we've made up.

Ave, citizens! Rome wasn't build in a day, but this podcast was built in a few hours, so you tell me which is better? This week, we're doing a Romans special. We talk about the games Romans appear in, the way they're portrayed, and the difference between Romans on console vs on PC. Also we talk a lot about the Pope, and ask the important…

Feature: But please, call me Animal

Podcast episode 104: Mr Animal Peperami

This week's Electronic Wireless Show is a bit quick and dirty - like a spiced pork meat snack. We loved talking about baddies so much last time that we've done a bit of a lateral move, and have each brought our favourite 'bad' game to the pod-table. Because secretly, all games are good.As ever, there is a healthy dose of chat along with our game…

Feature: For the greater good

Podcast: the worst villains ever (by which we mean best)

This week the podcast talks bad, meaning good, and if we say a villain is bad then we mean they are not good, but bad. Make sense? Of course it does! Yes, we're talking about some of our favourite villains in PC gaming. Some interesting topics come up, including the utility of different kinds of villain, what kinds of villain are good, and whether Dr…

Feature: If it's not good enough to be a 7, it's an 8

Podcast: here’s to the glorious 7s

This week the Electronic Wireless Show celebrates the 7/10 game. Yes, we know RPS doesn't have scores but the 7/10 is as much a feeling or a way of life. It's those games that are a bit jank at the same time as being a bit genius, the ones that you love even though they're a bit rough around the edges. Plus: more fish anecdotes,…

Feature: 100% podcast

Podcast: Episode 100, in which we finally hand out review scores

Rock Paper Shotgun doesn't do scores - until today! For a very special episode 100 of the Electronic Wireless Show, we've decided to finally ditch coherent critical analysis in favour of the comforting certainty of math(s). Over the course of the episode, Matthew, Nate and special guest host Graham (hi) assign numerical scores to 100 games, and then average out the results to deliver a…
