Whilst Richard is off doing important journalisty-type-things Matt is joined by the now-infamous indie developer Resulka to play Dead Island and drag the ongoing conversation from “puppets in abusive relationships” to “highly trained snakes”. Can her antipodal charm bring a touch of class to the proceedings? Or will it just be a mess of crude…

Tangential Recreation 1×16 – Resulka Is Still A Brazen Hussy

Megadrive co-op classic Toejam & Earl provides the backdrop as Matt & Rich pull the weighty corpse of conversation from “why we shouldn’t be taught Shakespeare” to “puppets in abusive relationships”. Along the way Richard manages to to inspire the episode title with his insistence on being libellous and topical, and Matt displays blind optimism…

Tangential Recreation 1×11 – Itchy S**t Fingers (UnEpic, PC)


Richard gets creative with his cursing – as in  literally “invoking an evil fate upon another” as opposed to harsh language – whilst Matt resorts to damning with faint praise as the duo tackle this week’s moving wallpaper – Francisco Téllez de Meneses’ platforming tabletop RPG simulator UnEpic – whilst dragging the ongoing conversation from…

Tangential Recreation 1×08 – Still Chasin’ Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt

Tangential Recreation 1×03 – Everybody Hates Quan Chi

youtubeMatt and Richard take to the sands of the arena, using Mortal Kombat (2011 – not 2009 as Matt keeps saying!) as a backdrop whilst they discuss (amongst other things) The Witcher 3, female character models, Dragon Age and the (not so) recent debacle of AAA games being released in an unplayable state. Meanwhile, the duo kick-off a prank war of attrition which is bound to end in death. Or at the very least embarrassment.

Tangential Recreation 1×02 – Weaponised Care Bear Stare

youtubeIs it a podcast? Is it a Let’s Play? Why not both? Matt n’ Rich spend another hour cleaning up after Kris Kringle’s homicidal redecorating spree as they discuss (amongst other things) the feminism of Bayonetta, which Planeteer powers suck the most, the emotional context of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, naughty Amanda Winn-Lee and the perils of being an anime fan in the 90s.

Tangential Recreation 1×01 (Pilot Episode) – HOW MANY MOONS?

youtubeIs it a podcast? Is it a Let’s Play? Why not both? Matt is joined by the inimitable Richard Cobbett for the first in a new series that shamelessly/lovingly (delete as applicable) rips off GeekPlanetOnline’s very own Tangential Deviation podcast! Two men, one co-op game and one conversation left to ramble for about an hour. What will they talk about? Where will the conversation end up? And who will end up battered to death with bits of dead Elf?
