Episode details

Ben and Tao arrive in character (and with a new microphone!) to confront their demons and run through the cheerfully derivative action RPG/ Diablo-rip-off-hack-and-slash, Wolcen Lords of Mayhem. The duo chat about inexperienced devs, lag spikes and game breaking bugs, gender stereotyping, coop multiplayer, why feeling like a bad ass has limited appeal, if Wolcen and Candy Crush Saga have something in common, and whether the grind of loot farming is a curse when it comes to replayability. No real spoilers.

Content Warning: PEGI 7. Some mild language. Lovecraftian level gore. Seriously, more than an abattoir.
