The Staying In Podcast - four pals talk video games, board games, movies, and absolute nonsense

Bandido, Outriders, Burgle Bros 2: The Casino Capers, and Mark Robinson of Link To The Cast - Ep126

May 1, 2021


00:00 - How you might know if you’re Unbreakable.

04:38 - Burgle Bros 2: The Casino Capers from Tim Fowers, is the sequel to a board game we first talked about on Episode 1 way back in 2016. Playing as a team of criminals on a caper, sneaking about and trying not to cause a commotion, this impressive follow up to the first game has been well worth the wait.

15:42 - Games you'll put in a bag (working title).

18:36 - The puzzle-like, reverse labyrinth board game Bandido from Helvetiq and Coiledspring Games has a small footprint, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quality.

23:05 - The understudy for bread.

29:47 - What the f*** is OUTRIDERS, eh? We find out more about Square Enix’s always online combination of Gears of War and Borderlands, how it relates to Cowboy Bebop, and if it’s really a cover-based shooter if it doesn’t want you to stay in cover?

42:59 - Solo tabletop roleplaying in Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu, with Alone Against the Dark, a 7+ hour long openworld-ish gamebook of cosmic horror, deadly encounters, and timekeeping.

All that, and chocolate bar conspiracies, with Kris (@DigitalStrider), Peter (@XeroXeroXero), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Mark (@lithiumproject).

A big thank you to Mark Robinson for joining us. You’ll no doubt remember him from Ep85, or from his excellent video game podcast, Link To The Cast. It’s available on all major podcast platforms, and we highly recommend you give it a listen, including Episode 200, which has a whole lot of wonderful guests (plus Pete) talking about their favourite games of the Xbox One/PlayStation 4 generation.

Note: sometimes we'll have been sent a review copy of the thing we're talking about on the podcast. It doesn't skew how we think about that thing, and we don't receive compensation for anything we discuss, but we thought you might like to know this is the case.
