The new Doctor and a Skyrim virgin

In the inaugural episode of NerdsPLUS, we discuss the downfall of Telltale Games, Jodie Whittaker as the latest incarnation of Doctor Who, and hear some thoughts from the one person on earth who hadn't yet played Skyrim.

Most of the stuff we talked about this week

  • Skyrim: (Xbox 360 Version): If we have to tell you what this game is I'm astonished you're listening to this podcast.

  • Made in Abyss:  Crunchyroll's Anime of the year winner and all around fantastic piece of media with only a few more penises in it than you're expecting.

  • Layers of Fear - PC horror game where you play a painter slowly losing his mind while trying to paint his masterpiece. Good, schlocky, hallucinogenic fun.

  • Saga comic: A space opera which manages to creatively and believably combine magic, sci-fi, emotive storytelling and quips like 'suck my haemorrhoids'.   

Next week's homework

  • Classic 2008 Anime film Summer Wars which kick-started the age of Sword-Art Online.

  • The absolutely chill and definitely not terrifying visual novel Doki Doki Literature Club.

  • Dominion board game: Can't tell you much about it yet because we haven't played it but I feel like it's going to test our friendships.
