New episode! We talk for almost an hour on the Stanley Parable and The Beginner's Guide, and I think it's one of the best conversations we've ever had!

Spoilers, obvs.

The premise is simple: we have too many games in our Steam profiles that go unplayed. To remedy this, we've decided to play 2 random games from our profiles then come together to discuss them.  With a show every fortnight, that's 4 games a person per month that we’re going to experience and report back on. Should be good times.

This episode we cover: The Blue Flamingo, The Dream Machine, Bone: the Great Cow Race, Hector: Episode 2, The Stanley Parable, and The Beginner's Guide.

Next time we’ll talk about: Vertical Drop Heroes HD, Volgarr the Viking, Company of Heroes, X-COM Apocalypse, Gal Gun Double Peace, Space Pirates and Ninjas 2.
