This week the Electronic Wireless Show podcast finds itself briefly rudderless once more, as skipper Alice heads off to the Realm of Spiders to settle an old score. In her absence, I decided it would be fun for Matthew and I to play a game called Sweeten The Deal, which I invented once during a 24-hour layover in an airport. It almost works!
We get deep into the theoretical lore of the Need For Speed/FIFA expanded universe, engage in some even-more-intense-than-usual Sir Anthony Hopkins roleplay, and consider the potential benefits inherent in claiming to have invented Shrek. Matthew considers writing a magazine entirely about microtransactions and the Epic Games Store, and the podcast's pantheon of troubling supernatural entitities is expanded to include a being known as the Alabaster Titan.
You can listen on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later. You can also now discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated room for podcast chat.

The narrative possibilities of Need For Speed tie-in fiction are examined and found to be bleak indeed, while the Epic Games Store comes up for light debate. Let's be real here: this week was pretty light on PC games chat, even for the EWS.
