Episode 129 - Rogue-Lite Living
Nothing to talk about but plenty to say? Sounds like another relatively successful episode to us. John tried out the Battlefield beta, Lee continued his Wolfenstein binge and Brooker finally started Deathloop. All is right at Character Unlock Towers this week.

Episode 128 - SOLD!
A full house this week, and there was a fully loaded and really good looking Playstation experience since the last episode.

Episode 127 - Just The Two Of Us
John has hidden himself away for a week. So that just leaves Lee and Brooker to dissect the news for the last week or so and chat about the games they've been playing. From Hades (again!) to Dishonored (again!) to Raji and The Medium. The boys survived without John... Just about.

Episode 119 - The Legendary Episode
With the remastered Mass Effect trilogy now out, two thirds of our hosts are balls deep into the Shepherd adventures. While another has been so busy celebrating cinemas opening that he played almost nothing. No prizes for guessing who is who in this. But come listen in to see if you're right.

Episode 118 - Returnally Yours
Plenty of stuff to talk about this week. Sony fleecing devs, and trademarking xbox games. No one is playing Anthem any more and loads of games getting the High FPS treatment on XBox. Lee and Brooker are here to discuss, at length, the ups and downs of Housemarque's latest slice of Bullet Hell insanity. All three of us get into the myriad of games they've gotten into this last couple of weeks.

What games really disappointed you in the last generation? That's the question Lee poses to the group in this latest episode as the guys chat about the games that annoyed them in the Xbox One/PS4 era. Outside of that, it's chatting about the delay-loop that Deathloop appears to be in, a digital E3 and Streets of Rage 4 DLC. All before we get to the list of stuff we've been playing.

Episode 114 - A Comfy Pair of Slippers
It's March. There's nothing new out. The boys have pretty much given up and are sat playing the same stuff they've been playing all year. So, they shook it up. And instead of talking about the games they are playing, they spend a bit of time chatting about those games that you can go back to over and over again. Those games that you can jump on because you don't know what else to play, or you've got an hour to kill. Come join us.
99 minutes | Feb 25, 2021
Episode 113 - Time for the Jingle
A ton of stuff to get through this week. From New PSVR to GT7 delay, to Vampire The Masquerade woes and Sony games on PC. Oh, and apparently it's Pokemon day soon. Who knew? Along with that we played some games, and all suffered through Lee's choice of game for February

Episode 112 - Epically Pwned?
Who's down for a digital E3 this year? No? How about buying the source code off of someone that can't spell and uses the phrase "Epically Pwned"?
