The End is Nigh (the game where Rich Evans has a minor speaking role is coming to Switch in December.

As someone who has gotten to at least the normal ending, I would probably recommend this version. The short, but challenging levels are kinda more suited for something portable. Playing a few maps on a bus/train ride or waiting at an Airplane terminal kinda thing.

Be fore warned though the game is very tough. I don't even have a Switch yet, but I may pick this up for the collectible squishy.

Cuphead ruined the stream for me because they played it co-op and it's basically two guys staring at a game for 2 hours. Co-op games just kill any "podcast vibe" the stream has.

You know the more I watch the botw with max Landis the more I think he was the closest to click with the gang the most. So many of the other guests are like super passive with their comments. Max Landis came in and immediately was insulting rich, starting comments while watching the films that they all laughed at, and was super into the round table discussion.

As much as I love the Canadians his episode is actually super entertaining.

This is the reason he's my favorite guest out of those that I've seen. He was actually eager to break down the movies.

My thoughts exactly. Except for the order 1886. That was hilarious.

I like Max on the show but he always comes across a bit too fan-boyish (which he is of course) with the RLM crew. Neil Breen was the real star of that episode.

Colin has been great the last few times he's been on, the Vampire episode and the BOTW where he recommended the three films have been pure gold.

Quick update. Coming up next are a HitB about a sequel to some robot movie and a Plinketto BotW. I wonder if they're going to make the Plinketto Halloween themed or if they'd do another regular Halloween BotW like they usually do.

Based on an earlier Patreon update, it seems like they're doing more than just the Star Trek Discovery re:View this month, so don't give up hope!

I mean I was like Jack where I didn't even know what genre the game was. The only thing I knew was that it had the 30s look and that game journalists kept talking about it incessantly so I expected some kind of genre-defining/creating masterpiece like Minecraft or something. lol

For me, it's a clear example of why hype without any context can lead to confusion/disappointment. Which is why I totally understand the "it's a good game, but that's it?" comments on their stream and in this review.

Adding spoiler tags, since some may find spoiling the review as spoilers:

Jay calls it possibly one of the best sequels ever, Mike calls it boring but he likes aspects of it. They dive deeper, but that's the initial reaction.

The original is automatically better because it has actual music (instead of the bleeps, the sweeps and the creeps) and the sound design and mix aren't a fucking nightmare.

Mike hating on PR is one of his most correct opinions.

I was very soft on the original Blade Runner, as well. I guess I'm weird in that I prefer the theatrical cut to the directors cut. Haven't seen the final cut yet though.


The new blade runner is fantastic. It was basically everything I wanted out of Ghost in the Shell from earlier this year. Unfortunately seems like it isn't going to do well in the box office.

Hey, so, I watched Blade Runner last night and then the Re;View.

They're wrong about the unicorn being footage from Legend, right? I read that apparently it really was filmed exclusively for the movie.

Also I'm glad they pointed out the ridiculousness of Ford's "camp" accent during that one scene at the club, that killed me.

There's a lot of wrong information in their Re:view of Blade Runner. Harrison Ford also didn't purposefully tank the narration.
