This week on The Electronic Wireless Show podcast, we get a little bit removed from the rails, as it were. Things aren't looking great for Starfield - or at least, they're looking mixed, as in the Steam reviews, and verified but nameless devs are responding to negative reviews with comments that are basically like "no, our space game is fun and you're playing it wrong". We laugh about this (but also discuss the role of Steam reviews and devs replying to them). As well as that, the lads have been playing, well, the same sort of stuff this week, James brings us talk of mini PCs, and Nate makes us play Dracula or Russell Crowe. Extremely normal.
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.
We record on a Wednesday, so some things may have changed by the time you hear this episode.
- Some person or persons who work for Bethesda are replying to negative Starfield reviews and it's coming off as kind of sad.
- This has reminded people of when they demanded players banned from Fallout 76 for suspected cheating appeal their ban via essay form.
- Replying to Steam reviews, however, is becoming necessary for some devs.
- Chet Faliszek says player numbers for The Anacrusis were inaccurate.
- Alasdair Becket King did another funny video.
- James brings up mini PCs (specifically the Ryzen Z1). Should we cover them more? Are they too mini?
- Also our parent company is investigating selling us the rest of the game sites in the network, DW about it.
