Episode 76 – The One With Red Dead 2


We talk about a lot in this episode, but there’s maybe nothing more tantalizing than Rockstar’s teaser for Red Dead Redemption 2! Plus, Battlefield 1, listener questions, and Mary Poppins’ sex life (FINALLY).

Episode 75 – The One With Paul’s Game Overdose


It’s wayyy too many games for Paul this week, as he shares his enjoyment of We Happy Few, Quantum Break, Mafia 3, and more. Plus, Kris revisits the zombie parkour of Dying Light on Steam, and nearly gets lured into Overwatch‘s seasonal horror theme!

Episode 74 – The One With William Pugh and Discord


We’re back, with a rambling mess of an hour featuring an interview (?) with William Pugh of Crows Crows Crows and designer of The Stanley Parable. Definitely one of our favorite guests! Plus, how William started working with Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland, Mr. Robot meets Watch Dogs, and experience the high-stakes, real-time telephony war between Skype and Discord!

Episode 73 – The One With WoW, Wario and Wintory


It’s a powerful episode as Paul and Kris explore being dominated by WoW, Wario and Waluigi’s genitalia, and drunkenly talk to our friend Austin Wintory at PAX West 2016! Don’t desert this episode — ah, dammit, that’s a reference to something in the podcast. You wouldn’t get it yet. That was dumb of me to assume you would.

28 Plays Later, live from the Wyvern Theatre at PAX West 2016! Paul and Kris talk about PAX, Kris’s Gears of War 4 experience, answer audience questions, and receive a little help from Elias Toufexis, the voice of Deus Ex‘s Adam Jensen. It’s a magical hour of video game silliness!!

Episode 71 – The Short One Before PAX


PAX West is upon us! Come see us in Bandland, Level 6!

Episode 70 – The One With Neon Case Lights


In this episode of 28 Plays Later, we discuss 28 PLAYS LATER: THE ALBUM! Yep, we have a comedy album, that you can buy online, OR you can get your hands on a physical signed copy at PAX West!

We also talk about the perils of being tired boys, the gauche frippery (its a word) of most gaming rigs and gaming attire, asking the question… why is the gaming aesthetic inside games often to considered, yet many gamers spray money at the ugliest junk imaginable in real life?

PLUS, Paul weighs in after a morning mainlining Deus Ex: Mankind Divided! Is it a worthy follow-up to Human Revolution? And again… WE HAVE AN ALBUM! Below, you can see the first box of copies, covered in a film of Paul’s glee-induced sweat. We really think you’re going to love this. Enjoy the show!


Episode 69 – The One About Romance Guy and No Man’s Sky


A very special NSFW episode of 28 Plays Later! Paul and Kris discuss sex and romance and their evolving place in games. What games have portrayed sex in the best light? Can sex be a gaming mechanic? Why are the early days of video games full of awful representations of it? Also, a challenging new peripheral.

PLUS — with the game in full release, we discuss our early takes on No Man’s Sky for PC. We like it, but it’s not all procedurally-generated roses.

Episode 68.5 – The Short One With Bali Pauly


A quickie from Paul’s vacation on Bali — Kris and Paul prepare for No Man’s Sky, and for next week’s episode 69, where we’ll be discussing how love and sex are portrayed in video games. Hot, sexual sex!

Do you have any examples of games that did sex and romance right? Horribly wrong? Is it necessary in the games it appears in, or is it always an uncanny-valleyesque stumbling block? Let us know here in the comments, or on our Facebook page!

Episode 68 – The One With Headlander, Abzu, and More Qs


This episode we look at Double Fine’s and Adult Swim Game’s Headlander, the beautiful underwater Abzû, and absorb more of your listener questions! Plus: Kris’ beard length as an indicator of overall poor health.

(And the horror game Kris was trying to remember: Scorn. Seriously, it’s… unpleasant.)
