Episode 73 - Control

16May

In this month's episode of the Playcast, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) work to crack the mystery of Remedy Entertainment's newest release in their altered world universe, Control. The guys discuss their thoughts on the game's story, the combat and other forms of gameplay, the graphics, sounds, and whether or not this may be the game for you. Shawn is a self-proclaimed fan of Remedy games, and Rich is a newcomer, so you'll find out how this experience appealed and put-off both of them.

While last month's episode of the ConcertCast was a bit of a downer due to all of the show cancellations due to COVID-19. The guys spirits are uplifted as they are joined by a very special guest, Marisa Dabice of the band Mannequin P@#%y. She and her bandmates' 2019 release, "Patience," was honored as one of Pitchfork Music's 2019 Best Rock Albums of the Year. Not only is Marisa a talented musician, but an avid gamer as well. She and the guys discuss the current and future perils of 2020 for musicians and concert attendees, her newest album and what's she's working toward, and of course, her history with video games and what she's playing now. We're breaking new ground on our show with this interview and we hope that you enjoy it.
