That’s right, you’re not hallucinating: we do love Super Smash Bros Ultimate. And also, there is a brand new (old) episode of Rather Be Playing on your podcast app! Why new (old)? Well this is an episode we recorded way back in December! The three of us were actually together in the same room for a rare moment. Needless to say it has been a really busy January and half of February. But we’re still here and have no intention of going anywhere anytime soon! If you’re still subscribed to the cast, thank you so much. We’ll get back on track and make it up to you with some fresh new episodes very shortly.
While it’s been almost two months since we recorded this, not a ton has changed in the world. So it mostly still holds up. It’s also our end of the year celebration episode, and it’s before our #NoNewGames2018 pledge ended, so it is kinda timeless in the same way disco is. We think you should be able to hop in and feel right at home.
As for the episode itself, we celebrate the amazing year 2018 turned out to be. We take our victory laps as we look back on the games we finished and the backlog space we cleared. We also talk about recent purchases and near-future plans. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is one we couldn’t ignore and we are loving it, if you couldn’t guess from the episode title. We also talked a bit about Overcooked 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2, plus a ton more as we gush about the 2018 games we finished and loved.
Going forward you’ll start seeing regular episodes again. Just bear with us as we clean out some cobwebs and freshen things up a bit. In the meantime, come join in on the discussion! Leave a comment, tweet us at @rbpcast, or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 (hopefully) two weeks!
