It’s time to wrap up the story of Wei Shin in our second half of the game club. Fred and Jam pick up after “the wedding” and wrap up the main storyline along with side missions and impressions on the base game. Then they delve into the relatively large bundle of DLC that released on the game (and is included in the Definitive Edition).

This week Fred and Jam tackle technical difficulties and announce the community’s Top 10 lists, and declaring the official winners. After that there’s plenty of community talk and plans for the future. Happy Holidays everyone. This amazing episode art is thanks to listener SieOne’s Christmas card, which we scanned to show off for all. You’re all great.
This week Fred and Jam delve into the Triad underworld as an undercover cop in Sleeping Dogs. They go over the creation of developer United Front Games, the sordid tale of development and name changes, complete with a cancellation and resurrection under a new publisher. Finally they tackle the first half of the campaign, complete with side quests.
It’s that time of year again: fundraising. We love to do this show but it costs a bit of money and we need all of you wonderful listeners/readers/community members out there help us pay the dues. Fred goes into the many ideas we have going into this year’s fundraiser and when to have it, along with the potential vision for next year’s content. Please give this a quick listen and shoot us your feedback either at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Contact page.
By listener request (but also because they love the film themselves) Fred and Jam delve deep into the Nostromo to cover Ridley Scott’s Alien from 1979. Plenty of discussion about what separates the film from others in the franchise, why it’s considered a horror movie, and a slew of information from behind the scenes.
Everyone’s got a bunch of Game of the Year award shows starting around this time, but how many can say they are celebrating the titles that came out 20 years ago. Fred and Jam take a bunch of retro games, a bunch of retro categories, and make the award show we should have gotten in 1996 but never did.
