3 - The Idea Guy

I don’t know why we go to such dark places when we record these podcasts, but luckily the games always brings us back to a mostly happy place.

Unless we’re talking about No Man’s Sky; then it’s a discussion about who’s really at fault here for this whole debacle. Is it Hello Games? Is it Sony? Is it the consumer for not doing their due diligence of researching something before you put money into it? As Will always says, don’t preorder videogames.

While you mull that over and come to the realization that maybe you shouldn’t have believed everything you heard all those months ago, you can take solace in the fact that BioShock 2 is the undisputed best game in the series. If you weren’t convinced before, allow Robto explain.

If that’s too much to handle, perhaps you can retreat to your own reality via PlayStation VR and hide from the harsh truth that maybe you just prefer bad games. For some of you, virtual reality might be a little much and for those people, this month’s guest Joe R. suggests a little something called Phantasy Star Online 2.

Sometimes though, you need a little companionship. No, not that type of companionship you weirdo; I’m talking about man’s best friend. The only thing better than a dog is a robot dog because robots are awesome and so are dogs. ReCore? Maybe not so much, according to Justin and Leroy.

Once you’ve done all this, if you still feel the need to go outside and experience things, might our regular Joe suggest hopping into your WRX and cruising the glorious outback in Forza Horizon 3.

Also, in case you couldn’t tell by the picture above, we talked about the show Roundhouse at some point. I don’t know why. We just did.

Anyway, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this month’s episode, drop us a line at podcast@thedigitalbench.com.
