#65 Top o' the Table to Ya


Robert and Alva are BACK, to talk about the symbiotic relationship between video games and tabletop games. We talk Steve Jackson Games, Operation Sundevil, the weird systems of Palladium's Robotech RPG, Baten Kaitos, Fallout's origins as a GURPS adaptation, and how apps are becoming more and more ubiquitous as gamemaster stand-ins.

We Play: Cultist Simulator, Mad Max, and Battletech.

#64 Undead Souls


The servers may be dead, but MisanthroPlay lives: Alva and Robert discuss the impact of Demon's Souls, FromSoft's unlikely and esoteric action RPG that would forever change the face of video games. Even after all these years, we still don't know how World Tendency works.

Also, We Play Far Cry 5, Swords of Ditto, Sky Rogue, and a return to No Man's Sky.

#63 Back from Hiatus


It's the second of the month, so grab this pod and come on! Robert and Alva reconvene after a month of thrills, chills, and spills, to tell you what they've been playing. This week, we chew over the new Shadow of the Colossus remake, Romancing SaGa 2, Celeste, Iconoclasts, Full Metal Furies, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, and a certain re-release makes us bring out that age old chestnut: is Bayonetta feminist? 

We'll be back in two weeks with an episode on the recent server shutdown of Demon's Souls, so write in with your thoughts and memories. 

Valentine's Special - Doki Doki Literature Club (feat. Samer Farag)


Surprise! Cocoa Controller's Samer Farag joins Robert for an in-depth and spoiler-filled discussion of Doki Doki Literature Club, a romance visual novel about Japanese high school girls, poetry, and definitely nothing else. It's best that you play it before listening, and you definitely should, as it's both free and short.

Happy Valentimes, MisanthroPals!
