GameEngineStart Podcast - Bear Swag

Posted by Euan 13 March 2014

Ever seen a grizzly bear take two attractive receptionists up to a penthouse hotel room with a pot of honey? Calum has, and he got a point of insanity because of it.

On this episode…

We Played…

  • Euan finds Calum just chillin’ in Dust: An Elysian Tale, breaks and then rejoins the F2P mechanics of Warframe, and prepares to be destroyed by the internet in Dead Nation: Apocalypse
  • Calum dives into Risk of Rain, cultivates a village in Banished, and finds out that Diablo 3 is actually a really good game now that it’s fixed.
  • The continuing story of Calum’s pen and paper adventures takes interesting bear and (literal) arse-kicking turns. I would listen to that if it was it’s own podcast…
