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

Halo: Reach, Decrypto, and Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #2 - Ep94

January 1, 2020


00:00 - Halo: Reach is out as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection so we head down memory lane to discuss the series.

16:00 - Do we make it to 2020? Find out at the end of the show! :o

20:15 - As usual, we've got the hottest takes. This episode? Our thoughts on Sam Neill going topless in sci-fi horror movie Event Horizon.

25:07 - Marvel's Spider-Man is wrapped up, but after the game's ejected from the PS4 we wonder if open world narratives work well in video games, and how important roleplaying can be for the overall enjoyment of being in these worlds.

44:25 - Decrypto and its first expansion Laserdrive are brilliantly thematic, 1950s spy-ish board game that really does make you feel like a codebreaker. Another banger from Coiledspring Games, we reckon.

56:38 - The end of the lovely BGG Secret Santa 2019 experience, and jumping in two-feet-first with Multi-Man Publishing's Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #2.

All that, and Halo as an adjective, with Dan (@ThisDanFrost), Sam (@MrSamTurner), and Peter (@XeroXeroXero).
