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.

We’ve heard reports of Cyberpunk 2077, Metro Exodus, Biomutant, Dying Light 2, Ape Out, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and…

Podcast: The worst endings

And then they all died in a nuclear blast. Oh, hello. Welcome to another RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. We’re chatting about endings this week. Good end, bad end, noncommittal end. We’ve got all the endings right here in one lump sum. An hour and nine minutes of audio distraction that you can use to ignore the coming apocalypse. It’s how we’re all going…

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…

Listen up, you’re drumming on my time now. What’s the tune? It’s the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show of course.

A lot of people requested this topic, so we’ve also done something special – a…

Podcast: The best magic and spells

What kind of twisted arcane knowledge is this? Oh, it’s only the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. That’s about as magical as a wet lump of tissue. But the words are nice to listen to. This week, we’re talking magic in games. What are our favourite spells? Should magic be chaotic and unpredictable? Or should it be arranged in an orderly tome? Come listen…

Podcast: Who are your favourite NPCs?

Ah, the non-player character. Stoic endurer of all our sadistic whims.

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. This week we’re talking about the games we weren’t allowed to play as youngsters, but did anyway. Alice suffered strict rationing of The Sims 2, and Dave (oh hello Dave) was looked at with…

The festival of dumb explosions known as E3 is over, but that won’t stop us.

Podcast: What are the best shooters?

Wait, didn’t we already answer this question? Never mind, the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, is not content with our list of the top 50 first-person shooters. Well, they're mostly fine with it (lists are stupid) but they still want to hash out this ageless question the old-fashioned way. By interrogating each other over the internet.

Podcast: What do we play with our kids?

The dadification of games continues. So we’re going full Dad this week on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, as we’ve been asked to talk about the games we play with our children. Alec’s daughter is excited by the unlockable characters in Rayman Legends (and she’s also strangely fascinated by Battletech). John’s son is a bit younger and likes to watch his dad diving…

Bit nippy in here, isn’t it? Let’s throw another game on the fire and warm ourselves with some electro-soup.

Podcast: Who’s your favourite robot?

Perhaps ~~you’re~~ the robot? Did you ever think of that, huh? No, it’s fine, you’re a human, a human who likes the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show.

Podcast: Being a critic makes games better (and worse)

Oh no. Somebody sound the “journalists discussing journalism” klaxon. Rattle it as loudly and furiously as possible, because the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, is talking about how being a critic changes the way we play. Don’t blame us, blame listener Aleksei, who sent in the theme as a suggestion. But please also forgive Adam, because it’s his last showing on the podcast (he’s…
