You know who's cool? You, obviously, for listening to the Electronic Wireless Show podcast. This week we're talking about games that make us feel like proper cool people, just like you - who, I emphasise again, are a very cool person. Matthew is not cool enough to be here this week, but I am joined by Nate, who is the king of cool (and crabs).
There's a Cavern Of Lies to test Nate's coolness, and we check in with Henry "The Vit" Cavill, but first, of course, we must litigate the different kinds of cool we feel, what counts as cool, and which games make us feel the coolest.
You can listen above, or on on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, or Pocket Casts. You can find the RSS feed here, and you can discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated room for podcast chat.
Music is by Jack de Quidt.Music is by Jack de Quidt, who is effortlessly cool.
Nate opens strong with Crab Fight, a game about crab's fighting.
Nate does actually find a way to talk about Age Of Empires II, which is fair, because he became pretty good at competetive play. Games like Factorio allow you to master complexities as well.
What about well hard games? My favourite soulslike is Bloodborne.
I continue my streak of mentioning Saturnalia every week by describing how finishing horror games makes me feel cool.
We talk about how it's cool to be smart, but not cool to want people to think you're smart. Genesis Noir is the former.
