In this episode, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) take on two aesthetically sensual titles from Dutch developer Playdead Studios, Limbo and Inside.  Both games are very similar in nature, but the guys examine their differences and break down what elements make them unique; a prominent RF Generation member also drops in to give his thoughts on the games.

Prior to their discussion of these titles, the guys are joined by a special guest and friend of the show to discuss Perfect Blue, a classic, once highly-sought after anime that was recently brought to Blu-Ray.  Are these games and this anime worth adding to your library, or do a few or all of them miss the mark?  Are these game too violent? And what do we make of these games "soundtracks," and maybe to some, lack thereof? The answer to all of these questions and many more in Episode #61 of the Playcast!

2017 was a very weird year for me. I was in a funk for much of the year and not really enjoying any of the things that I used to love so much. I wasn't happy running my game store, I didn't want to air guitar to my favorite bands, I wasn't exercising or eating healthy like I typically do, I wasn't watching cool sci-fi movies or TV shows, I wasn't reading any new comics, I wasn't socializing much if at all most months, and for the first time I can ever remember I didn't really have a desire to play games when I had the chance. It was a lame year and 2018 started off just as depressing. Early in 2018 though I was able to get control of my mind once again and make some important changes in my life that made me start to appreciate things again and see the joy in all the things I used to love so very much.
