Past Episodes

What Remains of Edith Finch is a narrative adventure game (read: walking simulator) that was released earlier this year on the PS4 and PC to high acclaim (it currently has an 88 on Metacritic, making it the 4th highest rated PS4 game of 2017.) It releases today on the Xbox and to celebrate its launch, Adam had the pleasure of talking with Ian Dallas. Ian is the Creative Director at Giant Sparrow, the developer of Edith Finch and its predecessor The Unfinished Swan.

Ian and Adam talk about what it's like creating an extremely detailed world that is 100% narrative driven, how the story was crafted, some of the challenges faced during development and some fun theories about the game itself.

If you haven't played What Remains of Edith Finch yet, it's definitely a game you should check out, especially if you are a fan of the genre:

Adam couldn't make it this week, but did add a bit of his own brand of flavor to our intro!

Dylan and Cliff talked Doomfist's addition to Overwatch, PS4 games coming to PS Now, Halo 5's upcoming 4k update along with four older Halo games coming to BC, the new Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne update, WWE 2K18 getting a Switch release date, our thoughts on the Castlevania show on Netflix, Splatoon 2's public beta dates and what Cliff thought about Salt Lake Gaming Con!

If that isn't enough, we also had some great listener questions, some great cheap and free games (and VR!) and a pretty good Troll Corner.

Adam and Cliff are out of town this week, so we pre-recorded a pretty much all Q&A episode that we think you are going to love! Lots of great questions generated a lot of really fun discussion!

I'm not sure if anyone is surprised, but everyone should be excited that there is a SNES Classic in the works! We go over the games, prices and release date and talk about how crazy it is that one of the games is the until now unreleased Starfox 2! We also talk about how stupid exclusive content is in the first Destiny, how Hunt: Showdown might have been the sleeper hit of E3, how you can get a Rocket League car IRL (well, a tiny one anyway) and a huge list of games you should grab on the Steam sale.

We answer questions from Vinny and Kevin and talk about a ton of free and cheap games you can grab in addition to the ones on Steam!

Happy Birthday to Adam! Besides the birthday festivities, we talked a ton about Destiny 2, including release dates for PC and consoles, the dates for the open and closed betas and what is going to be a PS4 exclusive and for how long.

We also talked about the sequel to Alto's Adventure, titled Alto's Odyssey and where it's going to be set and talked about how fan-favorite Undertale is coming to PS4 and Vita!

Nintendo released what appears to be the voice chat solution for the Nintendo Switch and it's... not great. On the other hand, their new online service (coming out in 2018) sounds promising. It also looks like we are going to be seeing some new Pokemon games, although not exactly what you might expect. We also give our E3 predictions, along with the complete schedule.

There are tons of free games you aren't going to want to miss and we play a bunch of games!
