We've released 6 episodes about No Man's Sky:

080: Games that Disappoint

In this episode we each pick out three games that we were so hyped about, but ultimately left us disappointed.

078: No Man's Sky Beyond (Expectations)

In this episode we take another look at No Man's Sky, in particular its rather unique development cycle, and how Hello Games have handled its infamy.

022: Back this podcast today!

In this episode we talk about early access games. Everything from their origins, where we think they're going, and some of our favourite and least favourite games we've backed or bought before release.

019: The 'in-game' illusion

In this episode we discuss how video game advertising and trailers have changed, why 'footage captured in game' means nothing, and whether any of this matters at all.
