Oooooh. Duly noted, and thanks! Might pester The Lady to experience this with me. Alternatively, Jas - fancy trying a new podcast?

Like I said, I've not listened because I'm not into the subject matter but the group it's associated with are very funny, very warm and very SJW, so I have no hesitations recommending it. The host, Jeremy Greer, hosts an X-Men podcast I didn't think it was worth sharing with y'all.

Aye that's worth a go I think, even though I never stick to regularly listening to casts that I do enjoy.

I'll also give The computer game show a go as well especially if they talk about R6 Siege. Thumbs Up!

Aw c'mon, using that tune is the cheapest way to get Supernatural fans invested ever!

Yup I heard the first half of the first episode of Monster of the Week, and I'm enjoying it thus far.  It's interesting just how many things I missed: mechanics, car references (not being into my cars at all), or just bad acting.  

I like that they're slagging stuff off, despite loving other stuff, and always with (what sounds like) smiles on their faces.  The group of podcasters have good chemistry, so I can definitely see why you li-

That's a lot of podcasts Drunka how do you fit them all in with 400+ hours of Mario Kart 8, is it like I said due to travelling (Think Andy said he listened on commutes which is stuff I don't do) etc and I guess much like me playing FM17 can play something like Kart & listen to a cast at the same time.

Out of the ones listed the only ones I'm interested in are the TCGS and I like the idea of the book club style ones but I would want to be playing the game and Zero said about us doing that sort of thing when Switches online goes live and we have our NES games.

Also, EofGizmo has talked about it for his blog a bunch of his mates playing a game a month, I think the first was going to be Super Mario RPG.

That I would just take part in those instead.

I'd assume with 400 hours of Mario Kart there would be ample time for listening to podcasts... I don't travel much these days, but obviously my general lack of love for game sound helps me stay on top of them. If it doesn't have a lot/good voice acting odds are strongly on the sound going down and the pods going on (unless it's a text based game obv).

I couldn't do that unless it was something like FM17 that I don't need sound.

But how many games *need* sound? I've played a lot of games where it is 100% essential to the atmosphere - Hellblade wouldn't be half as good, but did sound add anything to Steamworld Heist? No. Would I have enjoyed Celeste any more with the sound? No, it was all about the platforming to me.

To be honest I didn't that much of those with sound as I played on the Switch whilst watching to NVC or something on Netflix. I was thinking more on the lines of Zelda, Ni No Kuni, Uncharted, Persona etc which is mainly what I play personally which has story that I want to be engaged in and sound would help.

See Persona 5 is a game I listened to things along with a lot of the time. Dungeons are long without plot, it also has a very limited track list that gets super repetitive - listen to the lads instead.

It would take me out of the experience in something like that.

I did say I got into this podcast network after their Dark Souls show . . .

When I lived in Somerse, I mostly listened to them at work, whenever I wasn't on the shop floor. When I lived with my parents, I had an hour's walk to and from work. Here, I listen to them while trekking to and from museums, shrines, parks etc.

As usual, you can pretty much ignore all of andy's opinions.

Yeah what I thought and you can't really listen to a cast in a 15/20 car journey to work.

I sort of agree with Andy but more on the lines of what games don't need sound which is likes of Celeste, Kirby, FM, FIFA, Kart 8, I think all those could be played without it but most of my gaming are narrative driven where it is important and I just couldn't play a Persona without it.

I'm hoping that I won't stir up too much controversy here, but I feel that sometimes the music in a video game is worth listening to.

Sure are and I may understand why Andy might not like some games that the music helps with the experience, that I personally think are Top 25 of all-time.

To pick Celeste - of all platformers, Celeste, where it was the music that made it magical in the prologue, where I grabbed the soundtrack off Bandcamp as soon as I'd finished the game...

I love me a "video game book club" style podcast so that one by the guys behind Bonfireside Chat will be getting a download. Thumbs Up!

I had a quick gander and one of the two Drunka posted that do that are talking about Bioshock Infinite this week, I've not given it a listen as it's like over an hour & half long but I do have a bit of a thought on that game and another that came out that year but I see we don't  have a new random thought thread yet Sad

On actual podcasts, I gave TCGS a listen again this week and much better as they call the Switch, VITA 2 at the start and bring up the Jaguar that you've got me on board (that is a pun).
