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.

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!
