MisanthroPlay 2018: The State of the Podcast

Folks, I know you were expecting your bi-weekly episode of MisanthroPlay on Friday, but unfortunately we need to take a few weeks off due to last minute scheduling conflicts. Don't worry, nothing's up, and the show will go on--the beginning of 2018 has been stupid busy, and it's just getting busier/stupider.

We hope to be back on track by March, and we will be squeezing in a couple of bonus episodes before then. But for now, here's a few things you may have missed.


The Supergiant Deep Look

We recorded a suite of episodes over December that showcase all three of Supergiant's games. Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre are three unique hybrid RPGs that each explore a world in flux, and what it means to put things right. You can find all three episodes here, and we hope you check them out because we think they're all quite good. Beware of spoilers, though.


Appearances on Retro Encounter

Robert made a few appearances on RPGFan's Retro Encounter this month, too. The first of which is an episode on OFF, Mortis Ghost's postmodern cult hit that ponders the nature of the Hero's Journey. He also took part in a round table on Chroma Squad, Behold Studios' Super Sentai send-up.


Thank you for bearing with us during this busy period. Be sure to check in on Friday for a mini-episode in which Alva and Robert discuss their first few hours with Monster Hunter: World.

Writing Round-Up, March 2017

by Robert Fenner

As always, I've been awfully slack about sharing my work here. But that doesn't mean I haven't been working away. Check out what I've been up to, even if it's not front page news.

Sporadic, but With Good Reason



Disgaea 5

Disgaea 5

I know it's been awhile since I've updated here! If you're following me on social media, you've likely deduced that this is because I have recently joined the staff at RPGFan.com as a reviews/previews editor. Which is exciting news! I'm certainly excited about it! RPGFan is a site that I have followed and respected for over 15 years, so it's a dream come true that I've been offered the opportunity to work with them. I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity.

Of course, this comes with the trade-off that I have less time to work on my independent games writing. But rest assured, I'll still be updating about weird games when I have the time. I'll shortly be updating the latest episode of MisanthroPlay Podcast with Alvin Chua, that we're both very excited about.

In the meantime, why not check out some of my writing for RPGFan? I've recently penned reviews for PC indie darling Undertale as well as Disgaea 5 for PS4. Click the pictures above and have a peek.

Thanks so much for bearing with me during this exciting and busy period.
