In this penultimate episode of 2018, we dive deeper into some of the best games of the year including The Return of the Obra Dinn and Monster Hunter World. Nick also recommends Ashen as it just might be yet another sleeper hit in an already stellar year. Krispy bites off a bit more than he can chew when World of Goo comes up and an innocent question about Santa suddenly takes a very dark and very unexpected turn.

    I find Nick's view on cannibalism kinda weird/interesting. Although it's a human taboo in a certain situations I think it's acceptable if 1). The person your eating is already dead and 2). If it's a life or death situation. Nicks anti-cannibalism position is based on his view that cannibalism "will change you as a person". In my view I think burning, stabbing or shooting a living person will do more damage to my psyche than eating an already dead person for survival purposes. (P.S I really do enjoy these thought provoking topics.)

    I'm happy that I managed to catch Nick playing Obra Dinn on the feed. Much like Portal 2, I want to give this game to other people to watch them play through it. It was a delightful obsession when I played it and watching the gears turn/not turn and seeing light bulbs turn on brings me joy. I wish I knew who the others had difficulty with and would have loved to see them get through it, but it's probably less stressful to play off the feed then on it.
