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 play the latest installment in a series very close to our hearts; Age of Empires IV.
It's been a while since we last had a guest host join us; but today we're joined by Martyn for the first time. Martyn is a friend of the show and agreed to come on to discuss getting started with role-playing games. Not the video game ones, the real-life ones. We discuss how to get started, recommended games, different types of RP, DMing, LARPing, and more!
In our retrospective episodes we take a look at the mammoth multiplayer first-person shooter series that is Counter-Strike. We'll start right at the beginning with the beta mod, look at the troubled development of Condition Zero, where it's at now and our relationship with it. And finally add some classic Octal FM hot takes about the series' future.
