Episode 345: Three Turkeys and a Caveman

Sometimes a game comes along and you think it’s ideal, a perfect expression of it’s component mechanisms, and that nothing more should be added. Then, as Patrick learned this week, sometimes a sequel drops and it’s somehow an improvement on what seemed like a closed loop. Spelunky 2 is that game, and Austin and Patrick have been playing it! Join them as they talk through the new mechanics, their time with the original, and the possible rekindling of old rivalries. After the break, Gita and Cado have been checking out the raids in Destiny 2 and talk about the experience of raiding for the first time, Austin has another update on his Crusader Kings III dynasty and his murderous offspring, and Cado’s been feeling nostalgic playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 and listening to “Superman” by Goldfinger on loop.

Discussed: Spelunky 2 3:15, Destiny 2 raids 40:11, Crusader Kings III 48:50, Star Renegades 1:16:34, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 1:35:06
