Hello all and welcome to the latest episode of Lapsed Gamer Radio. This week, it’s the regular crew of Mark Overwatch, Stuart and Cev, and we are joined this week by the velvet voiced Ryan Hamann from the mighty Cane & Rinse and Sound of Play podcasts.

This week we answer important listener questions covering the gaming in the media to over eating sausages, along with the cursory glance at the gaming news with the teams occasionally eccentric take on it.

We also run through and discuss games we have been playing recently. The games covered include: THE STANLEY PARABLE (DEMO), KERBAL SPACE PROGRAM (DEMO), HITMAN, THE WITCHER III – BLOOD & WINE, OVERWATCH, SPLATOON, SPACE GRUNTS, ONE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, NIER, YAKUZA 4, PERSONA 4 GOLDEN, MEKORAMA and lots more.
