The Synics make their way through a dialogue tree discussing all this Disco Elysium. Hear what we think about this fascinating point and click RPG. In the news: Unreal Engine 5 demo release, the evolution of this years E3 announcements, and the shady underworld of black market Animal Crossing deals. Also we welcome (and eventually ban) our first Twitch chat troll!
Take a seat on the virtual couch and chat with the Synics all about the 2008 Indie Rogue-lite platformer Spelunky (which kicked their collective asses). A quarantine fueled whatcha playin’ is massive this episode, along with troubling news that Gearbox employees are allegedly getting shorted on their bonuses from Borderlands 3. What are your thoughts on spelunky?
The Synics sharpen their gardening tools and struggle through a few seasons of Stardew Valley. Hear what they think about this charming indie farming sim. Berto comes back for a monster Whatcha Playin’ segment, Garrett mini reviews the Sonic movie, and Corona Virus has developers pulling out of gaming conventions left and right. (Apologies for the shaky audio on this one, we were recording on-the-go over hotel internet).
Join the club (#sssgameclub) and take a seat on the virtual couch as the Synics take a critical look into Void Bastards. Garrett Rants on Twitch drama, Tim takes aim at G2A controversy, and Berto struggles to not buy the new Pokemon game in the synical spin. What did you think of Void Bastards?
The Synics reboot this week with an in-depth conversation all about video game remakes, remasters, and rereleases. Find out what we think about what makes remakes great, mediocre, or absolutely terrible. We talk EA and Epic talking nonsense in parliament, Andrew Wilson talking nice in an interview, and the impending doom of the auto chess genre. Stick around to the end to hear Tim read our first hate mail!
