Sound-byte 068: Reviewing our 2020 game predictions

Sound-bytes are our shorter episodes about what we’ve been up to recently. We've been busy recording our 2020/21 episodes of Octal FM where we look back at our games of 2020, and games we're looking forward to next year. In this Sound-byte, we take a look back at what we thought about this time last year to see if any of it came true or not.

109: Enter Player Two

In this episode Sefran tells a bit of a story. A story of trying to introduce video games to someone who has really...never...played...video games. He tried a whole bunch of games and tactics, but what didn't and what did work may surprise you.

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.
