It’s all about the twooooooooooos this week.  We’ve also got a billion more episodes of Rick and Morty to look forward to, but who knows when those are coming out, so we discuss killing the time until then with disappointing sequels, mindless consumerism and the eventuality that someday we will all fill up a hotel room with 60 to 75 copies of our lifeless bodies.  Happy Mothers’ Day!

This episode we discuss:  More Borderlands, Underwater Claustrophobia, the White Wolf game that’s not a White Wolf game, slow boats, font adventures, Isometric Tomb Raiding, “free” Star Wars games, An intriguing new release, a not-so intriguing re-release, space sequels, high-concept graphic novels, recent Netflix comedy specials, the obscene size of the Prey demo, Switch sales, DC Streamin, Guys blowing up cars, a slightly disappointing rougelite, the dark caverns of John’s heart, and every Alien movie ever made.  We wrap it up by answering a listener question about where to go after Dark Souls.

Here’s the boss animation from Flinthook that Jake was referencing (It’s in the first 10 seconds – don’t panic that it’s a 6 minute video):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26HHmcKmXNk

News: Video Game Releases

This is where we put out some info about the games we think are going to be somewhere between decent and awesome that release today.  Typically we skip over the heavy hitters.  Sorry Call of Duty, but 8 million people usually already know about your release date.

Dark Souls – 360/PS3

Buy on Amazon

Developed by From Software (Kings Field, Armored Core, 3D Dot Game Heroes) and published by Namco Bandai (GUNDAM).  Darks Souls is the spiritual successor to the PS3 exclusive Demons Souls, a game well known for its difficulty level.  Our money’s already on this one.  If you have a habit of smashing controllers you might sit this one out.


Spiderman Edge of Time – 360/PS3/Wii

Buy on Amazon

Developed by Beenox (Spiderman Shattered Dimensions) and published by Activision.  Fans of the previous game, Shattered Dimensions and fans of the comics will recognize the two Spidey’s present, 2099 and normal continuum.
