The Rotating Platform

A podcast about videogames

Month: October 2014

Episode 5: Get your cartilage ready

Matthew likens Sunset Overdrive to Tony Hawk shooting fireworks and flaming bowling balls out of himself, Mark thinks a little too much about what’s on Agent 47’s mobile phone, and Alan kicks off our new A Capella Game Tunes feature with a noise that unnerves us more than any Hallowe’en horror. Plus: SPACE ARK.

We want your badly-sung game songs and — and! — your favourite Metroidvania games for consideration in Space Ark next week. Email trp@therotatingplatform.com, tweet @rotatingpodcast, stick something on our new Facebook page, or pass your message to some chipper Cockney street tyke and send him on his merry way, the young pest.

Episode 4: You killed the other orc!

Your ears will never be the same again! Fill them with some amazing “true” “facts” about No Man’s Sky that we’ve “discovered”, thoughts on zombies past (Undead Nightmare) and present (The Evil Within), another predictably terrible Jam With The Band cover, and a predict-o-name game idea that brings Trisha “Trisha” Goddard and Dolph Lundgren together at last. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Episode 3: Fizzy cola bottles from a tube

This week, we give Alien: Isolation and Shadow of Mordor a right good discussing, reveal some unlikely-sounding “facts” about the man behind Minecraft, discover we like Newsnight about as much as we like Banjo-Kazooie — and throughout, we’re haunted by some kind of ominous clanking sound from the deep. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Episode 2: Thinking outside the cardboard box

(Recorded 23 September 2014)

Never let it be said that The Rotating Platform is a small-scale affair, no sir. This episode, we take in the full sweep of videogame history, from Horace Goes Skiing to Destiny (just those two games, you understand — not much of the stuff in between); we effortlessly invent GTA VI; and Mark completely misremembers the names of cities in Elite: Frontier. Plus: SPACE ARK.

We love hearing what you think! Not everything you think — that would be too intense. Just stuff about the podcast. Email us at therotatingplatform@therotatingplatform.com or do the tweets at us using @rotatingpodcast.
