It’s time for the great Spookytober Celebration! For your own safety, listen with the lights on.
Week in Geek: Andrew plays the ludomodular board game, 504, while Dan wraps up Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Cthulhu Called, No One’s Home: In the interest of Spookytober, Dan and Andrew return to famed horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft, and one of his most revered (and culturally important) stories, “The Call of Cthulhu,” as well as discuss the really fun silent film version made by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.
The Horror Returns: Andrew and Dan discuss what is likely the scariest of all horror movies: the not-very-good-but-hey-at-least-they-tried-something-different sequel! WARNING: contains discussion of Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
The Doctor is IN: In light of the news that David Tennant would be returning to the role of the Doctor in audio form with Big Finish, Dan and Andrew discuss the interesting implications.
Next Week: THE END! Video game endings, that is. Good ones, bad ones, weird ones, lack-of-ones. Endings are all over the place and, with games especially, carry a lot of emotional and narrative baggage with them so that it’s nearly impossibly to please everybody.
