#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.

#50 Over the Hill


Life Begins at 50

A MisanthroPlay for the Discerning Mature Set

We did it! Alva and Robert celebrate their milestone episode by talking about anything and everything. From the canonical MisanthroPlay Origin Story, to passport woes, `90s cyber cafes, sharks using keycards, and buying video games from a denim-clad Charlie Brooker, no topic is taboo.

We Play: Sonic Mania, Ys Seven, the No Man's Sky patch, and Apathy ~Midnight Collection Vol. 1~. Nobody plays White Day because Robert's delivery goes missing.

And we open the MisanthroMailbag to read your letters! A big thank you to everyone who wrote in, and to all of our listeners who've stuck with us for fifty episodes. Here's to you.

Corrections: I (Robert) erroneously called Detention an Indonesian game, when it is in fact a Taiwanese game. Sincere apologies for this embarrassing foible.

Episode #29 A Kou Shibusawa Podcast

Episode #26 Power Suit Paladins and Mages with Mullets


Start booting up the Apple II and grab your swords, shields and Hall and Oates records, because it's time to MisanthRolePlay in the 1980s.

Robert and Alvin trace the genesis of computer role playing games, from Ultima and Wizardry in the West, to Japanese Wizardry remakes and Falcom's Dragon Slayer in the East.

This wee in We Play, Out There and Reigns, along with some very outdated hot takes on No Man's Sky. Better late than never?
