Will and Drew are back together solo once again, and they have a ton of stuff to talk about – Drew’s been grinding away at Octopath Traveler, while Will finally beat God of War. Plus, Will’s diving in to Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Drew’s Turbo-Grafx 16 Mini has arrived!
It’s a windy day here in WDGR Land, but that hasn’t stopped the duo from chatting about games! Will continues to be enthralled with God of War, while Drew provides an update on Doom: Eternal, and what led him back to Octopath Traveler. Plus, he chats about a new purchase: The Red Strings Club.
All this, plus Final Fantasy VII Remake stuff, thoughts on mini sodas, the best breakfast sandwich, and more!
This song is among the first tracks I heard in Octopath Traveler, and immediately fell in love with it. It’s relaxing and soothing and mysterious all at once. The main melody gets stuck in my head for hours, and makes me eager to dive back into the game immediately.
I’ve been putting in a decent amount of work into Octopath Traveler, but this past week I’ve stalled out. I’ve had a lot of editing to do and when I have had time to game, I’ve been too tired to play. I admit, I do feel like I’ve taken a bit of a step backwards in my consistent progress. But I have a few days off, so I’m hoping to regroup and put some decent time back in.
After weeks of poking and prodding, Will knuckled up and beat a game! Which game? What was his mindset? How did he manage to pull off this miracle? And how did he decide to continue with this game, rather than abandon it? When should a player decide to abandon a game?
Plus, a new Nintendo Switch model is heavily rumored (again). What is expected from the revision? What do Will and Drew expect to see?
All this plus listener mail about comfort food games.
It’s an action-packed episode this week, as Will and Drew talk about games they’ve beaten and games they want to beat. Will is itching to play Final Fantasy Tactics, but he’s knee-deep in Octopath Traveler, and just purchased Astral Chain. And Drew is figuring out how to hide the bodies in Serial Cleaner, but he just beat Gris, and has a full review.
All this, plus a deep dive on dolphin notebooks and much, much more!
