Catching none of them!

Christi and Ian tackle some contentious subjects including the viral AR craze sweeping the world about catching them all, in a back alley somewhere. We equally praise and hound some free to play games, and we dabble in the world of defining what a roguelike is.
Christi gets in some low blows, and Ian takes a roasting regarding his “buyers remorse” over Necropolis.

Warming our Sporrans!


 We face the challenge of a BrExit decision, whilst trying to remain wistful and cheerful about gaming.

Christi and Ian wax lyrical about the summery offerings served up by Steam and the other shinies that seem to distract us constantly… all the while fending off the memory loss of old age and an arthritic claw-like grip on our controllers.
