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!
The boys bring it all back around and dive deep on Mass Effect: Andromeda. The first of two episodes dedicated to the much anticipated continuation of the Mass Effect franchise, episode 58 contains our first impressions of the game. Pour a dram, put your feet up, and join us on our exploration of the Andromeda Galaxy. Slainte!
The boys drink the hard to pronounce, and probably even harder to drink Ardbeg Uigeadail; quite possibly the most punch you in the face scotch we've had on the show to date! We rightfully pair it with the equally tough XCOM 2.
Officially known as Episode 56 1/2, the boys re-record one of the best podcast episodes ever. Sorry you missed it, it was tremendous, really great, one of the best, but it had distortion. We sip on the enjoyable blend, Monkey Shoulder, and talk about Breakfall's Starwhal, Le Cartel's Mother Russia Bleeds, and dive into Playdead's Inside.
The gents spend time with the Classic Laddie, a smoky, boozy scotch from Bruichladdich. We pair it with Will's Jotun adventures and Graham's zany times with Frog Fractions 2. And, in what seems to be a trend, Will gets into Witcher 3 and the boys get real, real deep into the Gwent Beta.
Graham and Will wrap up 2016 with their Game of the Year and Runner Up. A quick trip down memory lane! Happy New Year!
The boys enlist in some future and past first person shooters! Graham and Will dive deep into the Mech-Warrior-meets-Human-Flight-Simulator: Titanfall 2. As well as muse on the macabre Battlefield 1, a game focused entirely on the First World War. It became increasingly difficult not to compare the two games, especially after a liberal amount of the Glenlivet 15yr!
The boys expand on some of their favourite games! We explore the newest installment to the Baldur's Gate series Siege of Dragonspear, as well as The Witcher 3 DLC Blood and Wine. Of course, Graham gets utterly consumed by Gwent. We pair it all with the salty yet sweet Kockdhu AnCnoc Flaughter. It's a Romp of Otters!
In a quest to overwhelm our senses, we played a bunch of games this episode! We've got Lethal League, Crawl, Overcooked, Reigns and get deep on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! We pair this all with the Deanston Virgin Oak - a sweet, boozy scotch. Enjoy folks!
We proudly present our 50th episode! And before we get way to excited about celebrating an arbitrary numerical milestone, you should just listen to the episode. Will and Graham talk about Hyper Light Drifter, Doom 2016, and No Man's Sky!
The watch begins with the Tullibardine 225, a strong, fruity scotch aged in Bordeaux casks. Graham and Will then get into Overwatch, select some characters and vie for play of the game.
This episode of SnG is 2 years in the making! We fell in love with The Banner Saga 1 way back in 2014 and the hotly anticipated sequel is finally out. Join us as we get into the nitty gritty of Stoic Studio's fantastic followup, The Banner Saga 2. We also drink a rare scotch, the Hazelburn, from Campbelton, a lesser known scotch region home to only 3 distilleries. Enjoy!
Listen to our 47th episode to learn about Will and Graham's time with Duelyst, Halo Online, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and much much more! We bring back an old favourite, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Come listen to what some reviewers are calling "certainly a recording of voices" and the high praise of "it's certainly not silence when you press play!"
The FPS indiepoclypse is upon us! SNG follows up on our Witness adventures then gets thematic with a look at Firewatch and SUPERHOT. Our scotch is the mysterious and spooky Cù Bòcan, a lore heavy peaty scotch from the Tomatin Distillery. Enjoy our 46th episode responsibly! Or don't!
