#114: The Autumnal Games Special
1 hr 16 min
I won't lie to you listener, the ratio of games to not-games chat on this week's episode of the Electronic Wireless Show is pretty... it's pretty low. This may be the least amount of games chat we've ever done. Nevertheless: here is a podcast. This time it is about autumnal games - not games about the season, but games that are cosy, that are good to play when the evenings are drawing in and wish you had a log fire to sit in front of.

Although perhaps not, because on one of many tangents Nate describes how one time a pigeon wrapped in a binbag fell down the chimney in his childhood home. So. Other topics not related to games include hyperforeignisms and what member of a family is, psychologically and emotionally speaking, representative of the concept of autumn. There is also a very tense Cavern Of Lies, where Matthew does impressions of Baldur's Gate characters (only slightly undercutting the tension). Reminder: Matthew is, incredibly, not a professional voice actor.
