Episode 295: Why Is This Hotdog Doing That?!?

ERob made a trip all the way to NYC just for this week's episode! No, he didn't record with us in house, but he did get to see an early look at Baldur's Gate 3, the next isometric RPG from Larian Studios. He's excited by the game's apparent freedom in combat, where physics, spell effects, and a bit of creativity can go a long way. After the break, Patrick has been checking out the weird parts of Dreams, where Mickey can kill Goku and the food can look good enough to eat. Discussed: Baldur's Gate 3 1:25, Dreams 33:22, Candyman trailer reaction 1:11:38 (Content Warning for the sounds of horror movie violence from 1:14:34 - 1:17:05) For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Episode 295: Why Is This Hotdog Doing That?!?

Outer Wilds Spoilercast

Outer Wilds came out in 2019, at a time when politics in the US were at their most divisive. And yet, this game managed to be full of hope, and tell a story about community, crisis, and coming to terms with finality. A game where you explore a clockwork solar system might not seem like the best structure to deliver a narrative, but the folks at Mobius Digital managed to make a world that feels alive and full of history, even as it dies time and time again. Join Austin, Patrick, and Cado as they discuss their time exploring the solar system, having existential crises, and finding hope in the future. Stick around after the outro for some game news and a politics corner! Discussed: Outer Wilds 00:00, Games News 1:55:05, Politics Talk 2:05:45 For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Waypoints 45: Uncut Gems

EIf there's one thing the internet at large has said about Uncut Gems, it's that it's extremely anxiety inducing. People have posted their heart rates from fitbits showing the wild spikes, people talk about needing something to calm them down in order to get through it. Like much of the internet, it's easy to think this is mostly hyperbole, but after experiencing it first hand, we at Waypoint Radio can confirm they weren't joking. What really makes Uncut Gems special isn't just its expertly crafted, frenetic, and at times claustrophobic movie making, but also the critique of capitalism and all its influence on the people stuck within it. Join the Waypoint Radio crew as they discuss different readings of its message, the meta-textual casting, and which scenes made them the most anxious.

After the break, Cado and Patrick have played the Kingdom Hearts III Re: Mind DLC, and of course are still confused as to what the hell is going on. We may have to invite a certain Keyblade Master back for a future episode of Lore Reasons! Cado then takes us through Temtem, the totally-not-Pokémon game that has a lot of good ideas that should totally make their way back to Pokémon, and Patrick shouts out his new favorite Super Mario Maker 2 creator.
