105: Trigun: Humanoid Typhoon or Gentle Breeze?

We're continuing our anime-themed Octal FM series! Sefran has watched anime for most of his life, but Jalada has watched almost none. We're changing that. This time, Jalada has been watching the western-themed cult-classic Trigun.

Sound-byte 063: A JoJo's Reference <Ani-byte>

In this Sound-byte Sefran has the floor and continues his mini-series coinciding with his 'Anime Project 365', where he plans to watch an episode of anime every day for the whole of 2020 in an effort to catch up with shows that have passed him by.

This time, Sefran has been watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure to try and work out what the hype and memes are all about.

104: Game Club - Metroid II: Return of Samus

In this Game Club we continue our exploration of the Metroid series, which we last covered in episode 68. This time, it's the Gameboy classic; Metroid II.

Sound-byte 062: Super Mario 3D All-Stars

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. Jalada pre-ordered Super Mario 3D All-Stars and in this episode he gives us his hot take.

103: eSports revisited

In this episode we revisit the world of eSports, a topic that has been a bit of a recurring theme at Octal FM but we haven't properly revisited for a few years. In particular we discuss:

  • How eSports has grown since we last spoke about it.
  • How it has been affected by COVID-19.
  • What we think is next for the industry.

Sound-byte 061: Flight Simulator 2020

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. In this episode, Jalada and Sefran rag (perhaps) a little too much on the new Flight Simulator 2020, which Jalada has been playing.

102: Lockdown Games

In this episode of Octal FM we discuss games that we've found good for lockdown, and others we think might work well for you too.

Any game can be a 'lockdown' game if you're super in to it, but in the episode we pick out a few categories and specifics, including...
  • Games to relax: Elite Dangerous, Telltale Games back catalogue.
  • Games to focus: Cook, Serve, Delicious!, Monster Hunter, VALORANT.
  • Games to organise: Animal Crossing, Civilization VI.
  • Games to socialise: Final Fantasy XIV, JackboxTV.

Sound-byte 060: Apple vs. Epic

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently, or what's been happening recently in the world. Today, Jalada fills Sefran in on what's been going on between Apple and Epic.

101: Mechanics of Death Stranding

Sefran has been itching to talk more about Death Stranding ever since he started playing it; in this episode we discuss some of the interesting mechanics in the game. This episode is pretty spoiler free, so if you haven't played Death Stranding yet, don't worry!

Sound-byte 059: Griftlands

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. Sefran has been playing deck-building rogue-like Griftlands.
