Descent Into Dread Vol. 1, Skater XL, and Targi: The Expansion - Ep108

August 1, 2020


00:00 - 15,000 who-gives-a-toss credits.

11:21 - Skater XL is an entirely skill-driven skating simulation and it's been fascinating seeing it progress from Early Access to full release. Plus the year extreme sports games started coming back, and our history with the best in the genre - y'know, stuff like Skate, Thrasher: Skate and Destroy, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

29:13 - A smashing yurting holiday, the joys of outdoor BBQ, getting all excited about pizza ovens, and the luxury of indoor toilets.

32:51 - Caliber Comics has a new horror anthology called Descent into Dread: Vol. 1 up for pre-order on Comixology and in print on Amazon, and we've been sent a copy for an early look. And it's been lovely to dip in and out of its genre-blurring, expectation subverting stories.

42:42 - We've been exploring the superb two player series of games from Kosmos. Lost Cities is a game that gets a ton of table time, Kahuna gets better and better the more you play with the same player, and what we think just might be the ultimate two player game: Targi.

All that, and pizza-related activities, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Kris (@DigitalStrider), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).

OH! AND! We mention at the end some tea-themed Spotify playlists we've made, which you can listen to here.

Quick 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.
