episode #66

Content Warning: discussions on dysphoria, dysmorphia, anorexia, depression

This week, Robert and Alva have an extended discussion on their own experiences with gender dysphoria, body dysmorphia, and the general horror and malaise of existence, before exploring a trio of excellent games that explore these themes: Sundae Month’s Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor, Kitty Horrorshow’s Anatomy, and Anna Anthropy’s dys4ia.

We also have a related conversation on the now-outdated Cyberpunk 2077 transphobic tweet debacle (since the recording of this podcast, CDPR’s social media manager has been outed as a proper bigot chud), and the trans character Rosetta seen in the Valkyria Chronicles 4 demo.

We Play: Food Fantasy, Shin Megami Tensei Dx2, Dead Cells.

#52 A Dirty Pair of Shooters

We're a little late this week after running into some editing trouble, but we managed to shoot through. Alva and Robert discuss Vic Tokai's Battle Mania duology, a pair of Mega Drive shooters that meld Forgotten Worlds with Dirty Pair. Prepare for more trouble!

This week in We Play: Destiny 2, WhiteDay: A Labyrinth Named School, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, the Etrian Odyssey V demo, and Amazon's Running Diet.

Episode #16(bit) The Sega Saga: Mega Drive & Saturn

episode16.jpg

VISUALSHOCK! SPEEDSHOCK! SOUNDSHOCK! NOW IS THE TIME TO PODCAST HEART ON FIRE! Yes, we're talking about Sega! Robert and Alvin take look at the founding of Sega and their arcade output, before giving each other Cyber Razor Cuts to focus on their halcyon years in the early-to-mid 90s: Particularly, their Mega Drive/Genesis and Saturn consoles. We both have a lot of fond memories here, perhaps too many to fit into one podcast! We salute you, Sega.

In What Have You Been Playing?, Alvin enjoys Subnautica, Kirby Planet Robobot, and experiments with Dolphin VR, while Robert grows exasperated with Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (read his review here!) but falls in love with Black Closet.
