Have you ever wanted to rule the world? How good do you think you would be at it? Elliot got to find out with a very tumultuous go at Crusader Kings II. How did he do? How many people did he befriend? How many did he plot to kill? Tune in to his epic tale of intrigue, betrayal, and mostly cowardice.
But Elliot isn’t the only one playing old games. Josh took another shot at Parasite Eve to see how well it’s held up these last few decades. Remember that game? Aside from being the brightest spotlight our favorite powerhouse of the cell will probably ever get, it was also a pretty groundbreaking video game. So if you’ve played it before, enjoy his trip down memory lane. And if you haven’t, you’re in for a real treat.
Stevo tops us off with Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which he’s finally finished. He’s got some deep takes about it and the message it conveys. It’s an important game for many reasons, to be sure, and something we highly recommend everyone experiences soon. He’s got Josh and Elliot ready to boot it up, so this might not be the last you hear of it with us.
And of course, we’re all chipping away at Cuphead, our roulette roll from last week. And it’s haaaaaaard. We heard it would be. We knew what we were getting into before we started, so why did we do this to ourselves? We do get to hash out advice towards the end of the episode, so maybe our next run will go better and we can have it beat by next episode. Maybe?
Until then, come join in on the discussion! Leave a comment, tweet us at @rbpcast, or shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll talk about it on the next episode. You can also check out our Twitch stream at twitch.tv/ratherbeplaying. See you all in two weeks!
