121: Game Club - Super Metroid

In Game Club, we pick a game to both play separately that we've never played before, and then come together on the show to discuss our thoughts. This time, we're cheating a little because Sef has played this, but we're returning to the Metroid series with Super Metroid.

Sound-byte 078: Hold on to your Fez

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. We were recording a main show episode with Toni, and she stuck around for Sound-byte to tell us what she thought of Fez on the Nintendo Switch.

120: Reconnecting with Death Stranding

Given that Death Stranding was one of Sefran's games of the decade and he raved about it so much, it was always going to be on Jalada's list to play. So in this episode, now Jalada has completed it, we discuss (with some spoilers) how we both feel about it.

118: Code Geass: Jalada of the Rebellion

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 Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.
