TGI 559 – Save the Rogue-Lite Multiverse
With Jocelyn off for a few weeks, Ryan welcomes guest co-host Ridiculous Hat to talk video games, and we have a good amount to work with! Starting things off, Hat goes over his main rotation games (Hearthstone, Marvel SNAP, Runeterra) and his investment in a Steam Deck. Next we move into Trinity Fusion, a brand new rogue-lite early access game available on Steam, then chat about Hat's time with the adventure throwback Case of the Golden Idol. Finally, we close out the show with Ryan's deep sea adventures in Dave the Diver and Hat's vacation travel Switch games (Wildfrost, Have a Nice Death, Dredge, Sports Story). Moving into the news, we see a bit of a trend with film and TV adaptations of video games featuring Vampire Survivors, Twisted Metal, and Gran Turismo. Finally, we close out the show with our thoughts on the release of Redfall.
