Nurture Face Furniture

Christi and Ian slather themselves in follicle oil and pontificate on the game gluttony we seem to be caught up in at the moment. We climb the dizzy heights of interactive storytelling, point our LIDAR into the darkness before us and immerse ourselves in 360 degrees of freedom and wistful use of a couple of clown noses on a futuristic sticks. Join us on this adventure, and lather up for a good time!

A Bit of a Stooshie

Christi and Ian become a bit rowdy in this episode when we get all giddy because it is “Mass Effect Day”, and theres a bit of gushing about the Switch, it’s games, and the overwhelming number of good games to play at the moment. Ian is sick of diddling all the diddlies and is desperately trying not to PSVR any time soon. Christi references Dark Souls, Ian mystically chants the word “roguelike” several times in an desperate effort to get others to join his cult.

The Brut@l Interview with Richard Wood

The Laserbeards celebrate their first guest with a revealing interview with fellow beard-meister Richard Wood of Stormcloud Games, developers of the newly released action dungeon crawling homage to ASCII roguelikes, Brut@l.

 
Either side of the Interview, Christi and Ian jibber jabber about other games, including the little known sepia coloured space walking simulator No One’s Sky. (More accurately the Zeitgeist culture shaking procedurally generated No Man’s Sky),
Join us, but beware this week is filled with a too much over-excitement and can be a bit “sweary” at times.

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.
