Episode 28: Greener’s World of Peril

Remove the protective film from your earholes: we’ve got an episode for you to ram down there. And it’s full of surprisingly relevant stuff just this once. We play Just Cause 3, Xenoblade Chronicles X and Star Wars Battlefront. In Predict-o-names, we find out what happens when  Nathan Drake falls on hard times. And we experiment with ‘visual podcasting’. Which doesn’t work at all. Plus: SPACE ARK.

  1. A question for you fine gents, and especially Matthew. XCX’s music: I’ve heard both good and bad about it. How does it compare to XC’s? Gaur Plains remains one of my favourite vidyagame musics ever.

    • The music is not as good as Xenoblade’s, but what soundtrack is? There’s less of a orchestral sweep – though those epic tunes do exist – and slightly more electronic music, which is probably why people have issues with it. (The vocal tracks are very divisive.) It’s kind of indicative of the game as a whole – it has a harder sci-fi edge than the first Xenoblade, which makes it trickier to fall in love with. But it’s still epic.

      On a personal note, am a huge fan of composer Hiroyuki Sawano – his soundtrack for Gundam Unicorn is superb, and a good taster of what he does here.
