The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #4: Visual Storytelling

Podcast klaxon. The Electronic Wireless Show has recently awoken from the depths and has been going on a rampage, talking to developers like Tim Keenan of Duskers about science-fiction and Christine Love of Ladykiller in a Bind about sex, among many other industry sorts. We’re like real radio journalists!

In the final episode of this special run, we are talking to the makers of hack ‘n’ dash explorer Hyper Light Drifter and dreamlike detective adventure Virginia, and how both games aim to tell a story without using a single line of dialogue. Show offs.

The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #3: Sex

Stop sniggering at the back. The RPS podcast of yore has returned, as you might have noticed, in which we are chatting to all sorts of interesting people from the makers of 90s cyberpunk thriller Quadrilateral Cowboy to the creators of political elbow-nudging Orwell, and so many more.

In the third episode of this special #content we are talking to the visual novelists behind erotic adventure Ladykiller in a Bind and awkwardness sim One Night Stand. Yes, we’re talking to them about sex.

The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #2: Politics

Hello, friends. Our podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, returned last week to talk about science fiction in games with a trio of Independent Games Festival awards nominees. One of those interviewees (Brendon Chung of Quadrilateral Cowboy) went on to win dat big ol’ prize.

In the second episode of our IGF special, we talk to the makers of 1979 Revolution: Black Friday and Orwell about something called “politics”. You can find it below or stream it directly from Soundcloud. Read the rest of this entry »

The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #1: Sci-fi

It’s time to use to our radio voice. The RPS Electronic Wireless Show has historically been our not-very-regular podcast where we gather to tell each other how wrong we are about videogames. But this month it has mutated into something different. In the lead-up to this year’s Independent Games Festival, we interviewed a whole bunch of developers, all of whom have been nominated for some kind of award this year. We’ll be talking to them about sex, politics, and other things we’ve never understood.

In part one, we’re talking science fiction with the makers of Duskers, Quadrilateral Cowboy and Event[0]. Click onward to listen here, or find it on Soundcloud directly.

The Rock, Paper Shotcast Episode 5: Drunk On Tums

Another satisfied listener

Back once again for the renegade PC games blogging masters. Adam, Alec, Jim and John gather in one virtual place to talk about Diablo III, nu-XCOM, Game of Thrones, illness, Greece, The Call of Duty Company, EA and Kickstarter, their own massive ignorance, Goebbels and the mecha-Queen of England.

Edit – 60s-style hard-panned recording now replaced with a mono/centred one for your less psychedelic enjoyment.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show Episode 51

In episode 51 of the RPS Electronic Wireless Show, Jim and John catch up on the events that have taken place in the week since we last recorded. Events like the release of some games, and some games we have played. Those are the events we experience in our lives.

There’s chat about how great Tim Stone is, Jim’s racism against cat people, and we ponder why RPS readers like RPGs so much. John explains why he hates Modern Warfare 3 so much, while Jim moans about BF3’s doors. There’s thoughts on how open we really want our worlds to be, and then, perhaps not surprisingly, we turn to Skyrim. We talk Skyrim’s structure, exploration, quests and peculiarities.

RPS Electronic Wireless Show E3 Special

VISUAL IMAGE! Design me a better one, please.

Blimey, here’s a surprise. Dusting off our podcasting tools, John and special guest Dan Griliopoulos gather in a noisy restaurant to discuss what they’ve seen at E3 so far. Not only do you get to hear about Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Serious Sam 3, Payday, Torchlight 2, Saints Row: The Third, DUST 514, Dead Island, Batman: Arkham City, and many more, but also find out what they order, and then hear how long it takes to arrive! Hear the conversations of the neighbouring tables. Hear when Dan drops a knife on the dictaphone. Never hear anything else again.
