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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
