    Not sure I get the Paz Ortega thing, unless she's that character from Metal Gear 5 that has a nuke...

    Someone mentioned games they need to play for GOTY and Jeff said they should just play Celeste. That makes it odds-on in my book. A dark horse would be a game that everyone except Jeff likes.

    It wasn't, it's what happened to him when his house burned down a couple of years ago.

    You need to do some conquest battles for each side to get at certain cultists but other than that it's a bit pointless.

    This week I 'ave been mostly listening to: Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want. Remember being into this lot ten years ago but they've slowed down and got grumpier since. For people that like Swans, Nine Inch Nails, Dillinger Escape Plan and Girl Band. Touring in April so grabbing tickets now.

    What are people's feelings on weapons? I'm using a staff for multiple enemies, which was good for hitting those pigs with collateral, and daggers for 1v1 fights. Seems to be working. Agree that the boar was the toughest enemy in the game. I'm now 80 hours in.

    Make sure to look at the levels of each area on the map, the low and high-end are the numbers either side of the shield icon. I seem to remember Athens is relatively high. Phokis and Lokris are a bit lower, they're north-east of Kephalonia. Areas will level-up as you do (my whole map is now 60-60 as that's my level) but can be too high for you earlier on and I think that will hide quests. Athens has quite a lot of them.

    Their follow up, 'Return of the Obra Dinn' has some interesting design too.

    I think Dead Cells is the game they've been most uniformly positive about that Jeff also likes. Think Astrobot will get in there too.

    Completely in love with the Swedish band Viagra Boys at the minute. Just followed up some really promising EPs with a fantastic album. For fans of Idles, Fucked Up and Protomartyr. 'Sports' is my favourite track.

    I did love the utter disgust that Kassandra had for that dude who was playing for both sides in the war to keep it going even though I do exactly the same thing. Get Sparta down to zero in one of their zones and then go to bat for them in the conquest battle.

    24 hours of drumming. The man is incredible. Finished on Freebird and got a PB for it.

    Saw them Saturday night in Nottingham. Remain an exceptionally tight live band, as long as you like their guitar and drums stuff. Firestarter was an awkward fit they've reworked it again and it just fell flat. Nothing off Always Outnumbered... Which was a shame as Girls would've given the set me variety. That light show is astonishing. At one point Maxim came out into the crowd just near us about 1/3 of the way back but no one noticed him.

    I really enjoyed that podcast. Jeff as a video game historian is always a joy. Particularly enjoyed older bits I wasn't a listener for. Abby's contribution was so cringe worthy. I guess it was meant to come across as jokey but it just felt contemptuous.
