    Such a range of topics, all of which were great to listen to! Even discussing what geese do when the cameras go dark…

    I’ve recently been wishing i could experience Portal 2 again for the first time. I love the script, the puzzles, the story progression, the atmosphere, especially in the old Aperture labs. Still a great game to me, but it’d be better if i didn’t know how to do all the puzzles and exactly what’s coming.

    Dark Souls 1 would be another pick, overcoming the struggles, learning how the map twists around on itself leading to some surprising shortcuts and landscapes, and generally discovering From Software games.

    Side note: Pretty confident i heard the DS3 death music at some point during the Dark Souls section… IT FOLLOWS ME.

    100% would love to re-play the secret of monkey island as if for the first time, everything about that game made it a joy to play.
