The Hookshot Podcast finally returns, bearing the gift of humour.
Well, bearing the gift of a discussion about videogame humour anyway.
It's the end of 2012, the year of Hookshot Inc.'s birth and what better time to subject oneselves to the WarioWare imperative: REFLECT!
In this the seventh episode, Will, Keith, Christian and Simon discuss eight of their favourite downloadable games of the year, unpicking the likes of Fez, New Star Soccer, Letterpress, The Walking Dead amongst others.
This week the Hookshot Inc. team turns up to the studio in black clothes and with ashen faces to discuss that most morbid of subjects: death (in video games).
Settle down with a stiff drink and a reflective soul as we stare the end full in the face and come away invigorated.
This week the Hookshot Inc. crew take the subject of fighting in video games and give it a good seeing to.
Or, at least, the best seeing to that four mildly fey men who have spent most of their adult lives playing video games and not working out can muster.
This week the Hookshot Inc. team discuss 'build', the act of construction in video games.
Hear about Simon Parkin's alpine lodge in Minecraft, Chris Donlan's Little Big Planet tinkering and Keith Stuart's feral children.
In the second episode of the Hooshot Inc. podcast the team discuss 'Twitch' - a style of game that covers everything from Super Hexagon to Robotron.
As the nights draw in and the cold issues its solemn daily reminders of humankind's mortal fragility, what better way to bring a little warmth to existence than with 20 minutes of four gentle white boys excitedly talking about downloadable video games?
In Hookshot Inc's inaugural podcast episode Chris, Keith, Simon and Will tackle the word 'FUN'.
