Jeff Davis! They’re here! And we’re talking all about spoooky halloween things on this week’s episode, such as a brief history of Spanish nightmares as they relate to Blasphemous, the horrors of catching gods in Pokemon, running to/from/as ghosts in Ghostrunner, screaming at the top of your lungs in Holdfast, cowering in the dark in Amnesia: Rebirth, questioning existence with Umineko, and also Watch Dogs Legion is forgettable despite existing. We also have a terrifying discussion of crunch, work/life balance, and the importance of understanding what is involved in making a game.
Also, and for the last time, if you are able as a US Citizen, please vote for Joe Biden in the upcoming election.
