Picture the scene - flowing fields of green, green, grass sweep before you, trees rustle in a light wind, a single blackbird perches on an old stone wall pecking at the moss as the ground disappears behind you, then you see it, in the middle of the field ahead of you, singular, alone and prominently stood tall...
YES, that's right folks, this week's episode of Scary Granules comes straight from the depths of all things tubular!!
In honour of co-founding podcaster and part-time granny-botherer Glowbear buggering off to Ireland for a bit (what the hell is family?!) this weeks episode is Ireland themed!
...i.e. just an excuse for me to put really racist stuff in the show post!
:D :D :D :D
So bask in the leprechauns,
Brad Pitt's terrible accent,
and the ol' tricolour,
while we make a miserable attempt to entertain!*
In this week's show we talk about XCOM a little more, indie games like Xenonauts and Prison Architect are chattered about, Glowbear regales us with her Slender experiences, and we discuss the torrid secret of where Superman 4 was REALLY filmed.
(atleast bits of it.)
We also introduce an exciting new segment that probably won't come up again because we have no idea where to go with it! Not to mention making some classy film suggestions and discussing the possibility of games developers getting tax breaks in the UK. And don't worry, we ramble loads.
And the best part of the show?
Nobody died this week!
Enjoy the show.

About Panzadolphin56 One of us since 9:54 AM on 05.06.2011
I'm celebrity author and renowned street mime Panzadolphin56. This is my blog. I write things here.
...in case the blog bit didn't give that away.
Anyway! To the left you'll find my latest blogs, and beneath this you'll find a fairly comprehensive list of most of what I've written over the years (unfortunately some stuff does eventually get bumped off the list.)
I like to write from a fairly critical standpoint about games, usually analysis or talking about issues that interest me, I also do retrospectives from time to time, talk about games I've been playing, write the funny things that come into my head, and very occasionally do some crappy art.
I am mostly a story person, good mechanics are good mechanics but button pressing never does anything for me. I like Horror, I like Cyberpunk, I like Neo-Noir (especially crossed with Cyberpunk), I like good art and good writing, I like games that cut against the grain or choose to challenge social or industry norms in some way.
I don't have a single favourite game but I am a big fan of the MGS games, Snatcher, the Forbidden Siren series, Silent Hill 2, the old-school Resident Evils, Advance Wars and Power Dolls, among many, many others.
