Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Tune In | RSS

This is it folks. This is our very last episode. So let’s make it a party, shall we?

We had a very lively Twitch chat to join us as we celebrated 139 episodes of WDGR. Will and Drew talked about five games each want to beat after the show ends, including some long time thorns in their sides like Sekiro and Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Plus, the two open up an extensive mailbag one last time, and take some time to address their future projects.

Special thanks to our Patreon Producers – Nick Naylor, Shannon Willis, Keith Zallinger, and PancakeRonin!

#MusicMonday – Spiritfarer: “Stella’s Departure” by Max LL

Our weekly Music Monday segment has always been about highlighting VGM that moves us, or makes us feel something in some way. Today, I’m feeling pretty sad, as tonight we’ll record our final episode and retire the podcast indefinitely.

So, what a better song (and better game) to end Music Monday on, than with “Stella’s Departure” from the excellent Spiritfarer soundtrack by Max LL. The game was one of my favorite games of 2020, and while it was a difficult game to play during the pandemic, I found it strangely soothing then, and it’s strangely soothing and appropriate now.

After all, the entire game is about learning to say goodbye.

Thank you for everything. I love you all.

It’s the penultimate episode of WDGR, and as the clock ticks down on the final episode of the show, Will and Drew get together once more to chat about video games.

Will brings us up to date on his Death Stranding experience. The game is getting even weirder, but he’s into it. What is working for Will? Why hasn’t he checked out with the creep factor?

Drew’s also diving into Twelve Minutes. How does the game sit with him? Is he enjoying the point and click puzzle adventure? Does he find himself losing interest?

All this, plus Black Myth: Wukong, Quake in 4K, Hades, and the SNES 30th Anniversary!

#MusicMonday – Death Stranding – “Bridges” – Ludvid Forssell

Folks! #MusicMonday returns with another fine track from Death Stranding. I am starting to fall in love with this game, in a strange, strange way. The soundtrack is so uniquely captivating with it’s haunting, ethereal tone. Ludvig is a favorite composer of mine and he has no doubt accomplished something special with this score. Towards the end of the track, the vocal chants remind me of anime’s such as Ghost In The Shell and Akira. I hope you find it to be something special.

Plus, Hades has landed on Xbox Game Pass, and Drew’s thrilled to dive into the Underworld. What are his initial impressions of the action-packed rouge-lite? Does he find himself craving “one more run?”

#MusicMonday – “Once, There Was An Explosion” – Ludvig Forssell – Death Stranding

#MusicMonday is back with a powerful punch. “Once, There Was An Explosion” is a deeply invigorating piece that starts slow and mysterious, and then overwhelms the listener with arpeggiators and massive orchestral swells. It is a truly original sound that fits right into Death Stranding’s nightmarish dream world. I hope you find some enjoyment out of this theme.

WDGR Podcast Episode 135: Maybe The Controller Will Wash The Dishes

Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Tune In | RSS

With the announcement of upcoming Director’s Cuts for Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima, Will finds himself frustrated by the choices, as well as the gaming community. Are these upgrades to the PS5 versions worth the cost? Is Sony just charging extra for DLC? Or, is this something that’s been going on for decades already?

Plus, Drew has spend some time with The Ascent. Although his time has been brief, he’s got some in-depth early impressions of the game. Where does he sit with the cyberpunk twin-stick shooter?

All this, plus a weekend beach wedding and much more!
