Boy! We kick off Norse Month at SnG headquarters with a big episode devoted to the reboot of God of War. We loved this game and paired it with the sweet and peppery Springbank 15. Enjoy folks!
After drinking the elixir of life that is Amarut, (the first Indian whisky on the show), the gents talk Magic: Arena and Pixel Junk Monsters 2!
Edit: At the time of recording, MTG: Arena did not have a tutorial. The game was updated in mid-July with a New Player Experience package, including a tutorial and challenges to unlock intro decks for new players.
A wee talk about Reigns: Her Majesty.
A wee talk about DND.
A wee talk Subset Games' "Into the Breach"
A wee talk about GDC 2018
We finally did it - we recorded a Breath of the Wild episode! Graham got a Switch, and he beat Zelda. Then, out of the kindness of his heart, he begrudgingly lent Will the Switch so his co-host could play the new hotness. The gents chat about their experiences with BotW over the once-lost-to-time Stronachie 10. A rather fitting scotch that bears a resemblance to our sleepy hero Link, having been forgotten to time for nearly 90 years.
A wee talk about Numantian Games' "They Are Billions"
It's that hygge time of year. Get cozy and make a connection as Will and Graham get smoky with the Ardbeg 10, and talk all things Stellaris and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus.
The gents discuss the year of games that was or were in 2017.
Will regales Graham about his Dead Cells adventures in our fifth Wee Dram.
Graham discusses the psychotic explorations of Ninja Theory's Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
A month removed from the PC release of Destiny 2, Will and Graham discuss the hits and misses of the monstrous sequel from Bungie. They also drink the ONLY whisky from Wales. It's not a scotch, but hey, what are you gonna do. Love, SNG.
The boys sip on the really quite fantastic Glengoyne 18 year, and it better be! It's got to be the most expensive scotch we've featured on the show. THEN: It's animation madness at SNG headquarters! Will and Graham get into South Park: The Fractured But Whole and dive even deeper into Cuphead. Both games are inspired by hand drawn animation, but only one is totally gorgeous! Listen to find out which one!
Will talks about his romps with 'I am Setsuna'.
Will and Graham are back with their second Wee Dram! A hyper-focused, concise, nerd-out on Crowbar Collective's recreation of Half Life 1; (deep breath) Black Mesa!
The phenomenon that is known as PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds invades Scotch N' Games' headquarters this month. Will plays a ton and Graham joins in on the fun. We compare another Japanese whiskey, the Nikka Coffey Grain, to our past episode's choice, the Nikka Coffey Malt.
Welcome to Wee Drams, our new segment that delivers laser focussed episodes directly to your ear balls. In Wee Dram 1, Will talks all things Hollow Knight, a tight, devilishly difficult and gorgeous 2D game from developer Team Cherry.
For one time only (probably), we're drinking a Japanese Whisky! Fresh back from a whirlwind tour of Japan, Will gifts us with the Nikka Coffey Malt, a deliciously sweet whisky with incredibly strong hints of vanilla. Nikka was founded by Masataka Taketsuru in the late 19th century and is now one of the most popular Japanese whisky concerns. We pair it with the equally delicious PREY, a simply great 'bioshock-like' game from the makers of Dishonored. Enjoy! We love you
We wrap up our two-part series on Mass Effect: Andromeda and try to decide if we're getting old, or if the game sucks. Episode 59 is a no-holds-barred close-up look at the story, gameplay, strengths, and weaknesses of the game. The Bunnahabhain 12 fuels our discourse, so pour yourself a dram and join in on the discussion!
