Quality Assurance – Daikatana

Today we release our new show upon the world. We invite you all to come and behold the glory of Quality Assurance, the monthly show where we talk about the positive aspects of some of gaming’s most derided titles with a special guest star! For our pilot episode we tackle the iconic Daikatana with the very classy Liam Hill (designer for Defiant Development and previously Lionhead).  Please enjoy.

Next month we will be playing Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust.

We've played a lot of games and sometimes we've done it in unusual ways. What ways? I'd tell you but then listening wouldn’t be so vitally important.

Elevator Pitch - Stasis

We talk Chris Bischoff, the man behind the exciting and gorgeous sci-fi, horror, adventure game Stasis.  Unfortunately there is no video to go along with this pitch today as google hates everyone but we make up for it with Chris' charm plus James and Paul shutting up most of the time.

Ben plays his favourite game, anticipation after pre-ordering an XBone, Paul gets really into Forced and James plays some kinda real life game. Urgh how dreadful. Harmonix has an awesome looking new game in Thumper, we learn our morals from a robot in Doki Doki Universe and Nintendo shows us why we can’t have nice things. A big bunch of awesome looking kickstarters including one Paul almost forgets to discuss because he’s an idiot.  All that and more!
