You've heard of loving to hate something? Well, this week the Electronic Wireless Show podcast is talking about things we hate to hate. It's the games that we know are good, and really wished we enjoyed... but just don't. Some controversial picks here, I'm sure. The most significant digression this week is how Matthew is a serial killer who makes his victims into chocolate-coated mannequins, which runs throughout the whole episode. And how many sharks would Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn strangle at the London aquarium? Probably a lot.

Once again stealing a concept from a post by Alice0, this week we the Electronic Wireless Show podcast straps on waders to discuss our favourite sewer levels in games. We start off by talking about the sewers in Vampire - The Masquerade: Bloodlines, which we do not think are good sewers. There is also a brief debate about whether the canal level early on in Half-Life 2 counts as a sewer - at the very least, it has some grim pipes. Come for the municipal waste discussion and stay for the extended chat about sharks, the embarrassing email mishap I had this week, and a very special Cavern Of Waste Management.

This week on the Electronic Wireless Show podcast, we buy in to that corporate lifestyle by talking about our favourite fictional brands in video games. We talk about some absolute classics. Mmm, why I could go for a delicious glass of Nuka Cola right now! We have plenty of digressions this week as well, including a big thing about the whole beans on Weetabix thing, and giving Matthew a roasting because he says he doesn't like food that "glistens". Absolute nonsense. Full show notes: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/the-electronic-wireless-show-podcast-episode-128-the-best-fictional-brands-in-games-special Discord: discord.gg/rockpapershotgun
This week the Electronic Wireless Show podcast has been inspired by a post wot Graham did asking what the most underrated game is. We have ignored all the comments underneath and are going our own way. Alice, predictably, is the BioWare apologist, while Matthew and Nate bring some surprising nominations to the table. Also some Egypt. Full show notes: www.rockpapershotgun.com/the-electronic-wireless-show-podcast-episode-127-the-most-underrated-games-special Discord: discord.gg/rockpapershotgun
Here at the Electronic Wireless Show podcast, we believe in magic because, as regular listeners will know, we are all lighthearted, cheery souls, with nary a curmudgeon who bangs on aquarium walls to be seen. At least, we believe in magic in video games, and that's the topic of this week's episode. We may have already done this one, I'll be honest, but I don't remember it, so no harm, no foul. Digressions include a whole thing about whether a lever counts as 'technology' (it does not) and what it is like to get a blood transfusion. Plus, there is a magical Cavern Of Lies provided by Matthew - one of the most funnest yet.

Welcome once again, gentle listener, to the Electronic Wireless Show podcast. This week's episode demands that you tread carefully and quietly, in case you disturb Nate, or awaken the Ken Loach he has trapped in a shipping container in his garden, for we are discussing the best sneakings in games. Our favourite stealthy-me-dos. We also bring you a long tangent about Zoos, a brief discussion on the wonderful lack of complexity in the baddies in Indiana Jones, and a lot of anger at Matthew because he likes banging on the glass at aquariums because he is a monster. Nate threatens to bury him in the desert. Also, there's all the aforementioned Ken Loach stuff, which goes on a long time. Plus, I bring you a Cavern of Lies that becomes, alas, a Cavern of Sadness.

Excuse me do you have the directions to a good podcast episode? Actually, I don't know why I'm asking: here at the Electronic Wireless Show we practically wrote the map. Ahahaha. Yes, episode 124 is all about the best maps in games, which means it is mostly an excuse to talk about Hitman. Nate enthuses mightily about Red Dead Redemption 2, and I get a word in for Ubisoft, specifically how the Assassin's Creed games prove that Ubi are good at maps, actually. Apart from that, we don't actually go on too many tangents, although we talk about swearing for a bit. Matthew also does a lovely Cavern Of Lies on hidden Easter eggs on game maps.

It's the new year! And, like everyone else, as the first weeks of January creak by, we turn our thoughts to Sir Anthony Hopkins, two versions of whom join us on this week's Electronic Wireless Show. Pick your favourite Hopkins in the comments. The Anthonies' surprise appearance was precipitated by this week's theme, via listener Malcolm, who emailed in with the suggestion 'best whales'. Because we thought there might not be enough whales in games, we also added Wales (the country) and a special wails (the sound) Cavern Of Lies. Tangents this week include, fairly obviously, whaling and what whales might taste like, what role Matthew would have in a whaling operation, and events we have attended where actors have been dressed as video game characters. Also: Matthew reaffirms he didn't eat any fruit as part of his main Christmas meal.

The RPS podcast network (comprising this podcast and The PC Gaming Weekspot) didn't want to leave you bereft over the break, so we've got a little Christmas Eve treatette for you, stuffed right down in your filthy stocking. Yes, it's a mini podcast - by which I mean about 40 minutes, which is actually quite maxi - where we just have a little chat about what games we'll be playing over Christmas, and some of our Christmas traditions.

Welcome, gentle listener, to the 2020 Electronic Wireless Show game awards special! No, not an entire show like Geoff Keighley's cavalcade of trailers (and some awards sometimes), but a bumper episode where we make up our own award categories, and then give them to the deserving games of 2020. These include The Ronseal Award for doing what it says on the tin (podcast not actually sponsored by Ronseal, so it does sort of feel we're missing a trick here) and the Very Tiny Men award for tiniest men.

This week sees the triumphant return of Nate - or should I say The Electricity Cop, as this episode of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast goes down to Cyberpunk 2077 town. Matthew has played 70 hours of that game that everyone is talking about, so we ask him 20 questions about it (or, well, like, ten-ish, probably). These range from "what games is it most comparable to?" to "what about the performance issues?" and also "have you been watching The Mandalorian?" Plus, we get the thrilling conclusion to Matthew's ConeGate aka Game Of Cones aka the Conetto Trilogy, and a Cavern Of Lies that has to be heard to be believed.

Today we hit the yearly milestone of deciding it was finally cold enough to turn the heating on. You hold out as long as you can, obviously. Not made of money. Perhaps we could have lasted longer if we'd had very fashionable coats made out of the skin of a rare bat monster, such as you can hunt and kill in Monster Hunter: World. Yes, from this thrilling segue you'll now be aware that this week's episode of The Electronic Wireless Show is all about fashion in games. We talk about Dark Souls, we talk about Hitman, we talk about Fable. All the hits! Since Nate is regrettably still bust, it was just me and Matthew again, but we fill the time by discussing peacocks. Plus! The second instalment in the ConeGate Conspiracy. Will Matthew be able to secure a parking space? Will the scaffolding go up okay? Catch up today, and stay tuned for a further update next week.

I don't want anyone to be disappointed, but Nate is away this week so you've got an Alice 'n' Matthew special, since I couldn't draft in a third body in time. Nevertheless, this week we had a grand old time, albeit one with less chat about animals. In fact, we manage to talk about games quite a lot! Historically speaking, JRPGs didn't often come to PC, but the times, they are a changin', so we have plenty to chat about. There aren't none diversions. We talk quite a lot about scaffolding, for example. Don't forget to tune in to the Five Nights At Freddy's Book Club spin-off podcast.

This week, dear listeners, we urge you to think small, as we take a look at our favourite little details in games that don't need to be there, and yet are. The strange Easter eggs, the loving little inclusions, the proverbial mint popped on the digipillow of your entertainment. Matthew talks about Red Dead Redemption 2, obviously, the big mass entertainment-liker. Diversions this week include the fact that Nate imagines game characters are whatever size they appear on his screen, conspiracy theories about Avril Lavigne, and a five minute extended series of in-jokes that will sort the TRUFANS of EWS, the Shergar's Heart Squad, from the fake haters.

Welcome again, dear listener, to the Electronic Wireless Show, the best and most solidly on-topic PC gaming podcast the world has ever seen. This week, we invite you to be our guest, take a seat at our dinner table, and prepare for a hearty helping of chat. About food. Because this week the topic is all the best food in games, you see. I hope I laboured that point enough. We cover all manner of games, with only a brief mention of Skyrim, and a more extended chat about Final Fantasy XV and Monster Hunter. But to be honest we spend most of our time talking about actual food. Conversational diversions this week include how dead bodies are transported around cruise ships, and our death row meals. Death comes up a lot, actually. It gets kind of dark. But in a fun way!

After the rip-roaring success that was last week's episode of The Electronic Wireless Show, where we talked about autumnal games and Matthew and Alice almost came to blows, this week's podcast is a sequel. Yes, this week we are discussing our favourite wintery games. There is, obviously, a discussion about what constitutes 'wintery', because Alice thinks a game being snowy isn't enough. Surprisingly, it is Nate who tries to keep on theme this week, and Alice that goes off on upsetting tangents. Wonders never cease! We also spend some time discussing Skyrim, i.e. whether it is on or off the wintery table. Tangents include the Vic Mignona lawsuit and Matthew becoming the sort of person who hangs out by canals. Also, thank you to listener Kitku, who sent us a very nice email telling us how great we are.

I won't lie to you listener, the ratio of games to not-games chat on this week's episode of the Electronic Wireless Show is pretty... it's pretty low. This may be the least amount of games chat we've ever done. Nevertheless: here is a podcast. This time it is about autumnal games - not games about the season, but games that are cosy, that are good to play when the evenings are drawing in and wish you had a log fire to sit in front of. Although perhaps not, because on one of many tangents Nate describes how one time a pigeon wrapped in a binbag fell down the chimney in his childhood home. So. Other topics not related to games include hyperforeignisms and what member of a family is, psychologically and emotionally speaking, representative of the concept of autumn. There is also a very tense Cavern Of Lies, where Matthew does impressions of Baldur's Gate characters (only slightly undercutting the tension). Reminder: Matthew is, incredibly, not a professional voice actor.

Yesterday, Nate observed that he is increasingly becoming a single issue voter and that single issue is "beasts". This week, therefore, the podcast is about the best dinosaur games. There is, of course, some haggling over what constitutes a dinosaur (does it include all birds and some robots?). Expect a lot of discussion of various incarnations of Jurassic Park, as you might expect. There is also a long tangent at the start about toilets because Matthew signed in to the recording as 'Toilet Lawyer', which is probably less expected, and a pretty credible impression of the Queen from Nate. Nate also recommends a bunch of early access or indie games that will be of interest to dinofans, although one of them is "I can't remember what it's called."

Alice Bee is back from holiday in time for a massive CRPG to enter early access, so this episode is supposedly about our favourite companions in games, but it's really mostly about Baldur's Gate III, Larian's massive new Dungeons & Dragons-themed, reawakening-a-classic fantasy game. She and Matthew have both played a bit of it (Matthew a lot more than her), but we have a chinwag about it and the characters in it nonetheless. We do also get to chatting about our actual favourite companions from other games, though. There are mentions for some old reliables that I bet some of you already knew were going to come up, as well as some surprise entries from new up and comers. We like to keep things fresh here at the Electronic Wireless Show. Just don't hit your head on all the digressions, or in this week's Cavern Of Lies, which is a lil' D&D treat.

Alice is on holiday, which means it falls to Graham to lead Nate and Matthew in cheerful conversation. Unfortunately I've been playing a lot of Spelunky 2 over the past two weeks, which means all our cheery conversation in this week's Electronic Wireless Show is about death. We talk about our favourite deaths in videogames, whether they be the systems-driven demise of a Crusader Kings king or a shooter protagonist permanently snuffed out by a scripted sequence. We also talk about the end of swarms, Matthew's strange theories about What Remains Of Edith Finch and Call Of Duty, spoil the first season of The Walking Dead, and a lot more.

In a change of pace for the Electronic Wireless Show this week, Nate is on holiday and we're joined by special guest VidBud Colm Ahern to discuss our favourite special powers from video games. The title is actually a misnomer, because I immediately go on to say that really we're talking about weird or supernatural special powers, not super powers like wot The Avengers have. An example, that we talk about at in fact, is Max's power to rewind time in Life Is Strange. Our diversions this week are less likely to involve the term "bumeggs", but we do spend ages talking about whether or not a character in Resident Evil 7 has a beehive for a bum or not. Also, it turns out that we mostly want special abilities that facilitate the acquisition and consumption of food. We did record this around lunchtime, in fairness. To make things more confusing, the Cavern Of Lies this week is superhero themed, specifically around 2002 strategy game Freedom Force.

As you all know, we here at The Rock Paper Shotgun Electronic Wireless Show podcast love to innovate and do things that nobody has ever done before. That’s why we did a live podcast episode! I know, I know. This has never been attempted by god nor human. But hold your applause and gasps of wonder until you’re listening to The RPS Electronic Show Live – The Living A Normal Life Special, part of EGX Digital! The theme, living a normal life, is partly so we could make a terrible pun that doesn’t quite work on live/life, but partly because in 2020 normal life seems a dream, beyond the reach of our grasp. Not if you have games, though! So, in this episode, we chat about the games that let us simulate a life, be that a tiny but more attractive version of your own in The Sims, or one where you are a cruel and capricious god in Black & White.

This week the podcast moves out of Nate's dad wheelhouse and into Matthew's film wheelhouse. It's a bumper and bumpy ride this week, as we discuss video game adaptations of them there Hollywood talkies! This does end up involving quite a lot of Star Wars chat, because there are so many Star Wars games. Tangents this week include Nate going on about Gimli a lot, the terrible Mothers' Day present Matthew nearly got for his mum, and what film series LEGO should tackle next (spoilers: it is the work of Lars von Trier).

This week the podcast truly is the daddy of all podcasts, as we decide to talk all things dad in games. This, of course, means we must first establish what a dad game is. Are we talking about games that dads will like or games about dads? And what is the crossover between the two?

This week we have an extra special treat for you! It does mean we don't talk about PC games at all, though. Well, we do, but we talk about fake ones that we've made up. Today we're joined by special guests Meg from EGX and ReedPop video producer Dean to for an actual play of our new free tabletop RPG, EGX Rezzed The RPG! EGX Rezzed The RPG was written by Grant Howitt, of Rowan, Rook and Decard, and our own Nate Crowley. It is a madcap dungeon crawl adventure through the Tobacco Dock, and it's free for you to download and play right here: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/08/20/we-miss-rezzed-so-much-that-we-turned-it-into-a-free-tabletop-rpg/ Full show notes: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/08/20/podcast-episode-106-the-rezzed-tabletop-rpg-special Discord: discord.gg/rockpapershotgun
