21/01 18:45 - Idle Thumbs 246: Mesmerized, Process, and Anxiety
This episode contains three documented favorite words of Nick Breckon, age 3. Mesmerized: Jake tries a Vive for the first time and briefly forgets his friends, loved ones, and the world around him. Process: Chris spends more time with Just Cause 3 and his feelings become increasingly mixed....
14/01 15:24 - Idle Thumbs 245: Psyching Out That Bear
You soar over a Mediterranean villa and find it so thrilling you think, "Hey, I'll build myself a new computer so this looks nicer." In the time it takes you to have this experience and this thought, a plastic robot toy built in 1985 completes Super Mario World. You remember throwing out the...
07/01 07:30 - Idle Thumbs 244: Heroes vs Villains
Jake Rodkin has vanished. In his absence, we discuss Bushido Blade, Yakuza 5, Rainbow Six: Siege, and the obscure Japanese open-world game Mizzurna Falls. Which can mean only one thing: Steve "Hot Scoops" Gaynor has returned.
31/12 19:26 - Idle Thumbs 243: Idle Thumbs Demo Disk Q1 2016
The new year should be treated as a time of opportunity. A time to seek out fresh experiences, to get motivated to try some things you normally wouldn't. It's also a time to collapse in a tired heap and take a break to recharge. It is for both these reasons that we're bringing you an Idle Thumbs...
24/12 19:18 - Idle Thumbs 242: A Simple Goat
For many, this is the season of cheer and joviality, a time best spent close to family and loved ones. For others (like Nick Breckon), its the perfect time to dip a first toe into Dwarf Fortress and disappear from this world altogether. Plus, Chris shares his experiences with the top-down shooter...
17/12 02:39 - Idle Thumbs 241: Suddenly the King of France
Your favorite creators are coming back, they've brought your favorite games, and to play them all you have to step into this skintight vibrating body suit. Plus, Nick returns to Crusader Kings 2 with disastrous (if unsurprising) results, and we stare straight into the surreal heart of the Frog...
09/12 22:13 - Idle Thumbs 240: Mikami's Iconic Hat
Come in, come in? Ah, I'm surprised to see YOU wearing that hat. But welcome. My name is Dr. Caligari. I mean Dr. Strangelove. Actually, call me Dr. Langeskov. Sit back and let's take a look into your history. Boy, there are a lot of murders, aren't there? Very?densely packed. And more tweets...
03/12 17:35 - Idle Thumbs 239: Trash Can Sally
It seems like whenever you move, she moves. Whatever drives her, she sees to know a lot about you, but you don't know where she came from, where she's going, or how you can see more of her. You sit alone in your settlement and hope she comes by again.
26/11 02:16 - Idle Thumbs 238: From Earth to Pluto
Now that the mobile companion apps to our favorite hardcore economic simulators and open world roleplaying games have sucked all the time out of our lives, we take a deep dip into the Idle Thumbs mailbag.
18/11 21:19 - Idle Thumbs 237: Momazon Prime
Fallout 4 has us in its thrall, but we still have questions. What would a Fallout sequel be like if it was set in the Middle East, or South America? If you're a Raider and your parents immigrated from Tuscany, does that make you a Tuscan Raider, or a Tuscan-American Raider? Why do you have to...
12/11 20:08 - Idle Thumbs 236: Twenty-Year-Old Weird House
This house survived three wars, countless natural disasters, and the end of civilization as we know it. If these walls could talk, the stories they could tell might change your life. Unfortunately for these walls, they'd look pretty great lining my settlement's new basketball court. Sorry, walls,...
05/11 05:47 - Idle Thumbs 235: Plaited Haircut of the Whale
Our attention is split three ways this week, all thanks to Anno 2205. Jake sits in his island city patiently awaiting the new Super Mario Maker update. Nick spends his time on the moon, never sleeping, launching missiles until there's nothing left to nuke. Spaff sits alone in the arctic, huddled...
29/10 19:36 - Idle Thumbs 234: Mister Neighbor
Mister Neighbor has something great in store for you this week, once he's changed into some comfortable shoes. All he has to do is walk out of frame and suddenly you're somewhere new. You hope Mister Neighbor takes you to the factory to show you how the machines put together your favorite things,...
22/10 00:47 - Idle Thumbs 233: World of Blanks
When walking through a place you've walked many times before, you see a small hole in the ground, decide to climb in, and now you're falling forever and ever and ever, unable to stop, unable to return to the life you had before you found the hole. This is the video game Downwell and this is Chris...
15/10 17:57 - Idle Thumbs 232: Happy #DishonoredHalloween
Not so long ago, on a night not unlike this very night, the people braved the sewers of rats, donned their nice masks, and celebrated the first Dishonored Halloween. You should have been there. Now, three years later, Dishonored Halloween's gone corporate?a sold-out shell of itself that's not...
08/10 04:58 - Idle Thumbs 231: Computer Processing Unit
Using this custom-built glimmering console of knobs and sliders, we have calibrated the podcast to be perfectly suited to your taste. The sliders have also been tuned to provide you with incredibly fat bass, a catchy counter-melody, and a breathtaking view. The view initially featured twelve...
01/10 00:17 - Idle Thumbs 230: A Farewell to Junior Mints
An era ends as we say goodbye to Danielle "Junior Mints" Riendeau, who is off to New York for love and (somehow) lower rent. We are saying goodbye to Danielle in three ways: by talking about the new Cities Skylines expansion and its improved offerings in poop flow management, by playing hours of...
24/09 00:11 - Idle Thumbs 229: Sneaking for Carl
This week we deal in fear. Danielle (who is fearless) finds a new horror game love in SOMA, Nick's time with Metal Gear Solid V comes to the confusing and bleak end he feared was there all along, and Jake is feared lost, last seen entering a ghost house of his own creation. Chris fears a hedgehog...
17/09 00:59 - Idle Thumbs 228: New Game Plus or Minus World
If this description seems brief, if we're hard to get ahold of right now, the answer is very simple and not that inexplicable: We can't stop playing Super Mario Maker or Metal Gear Solid V. There's only one thing that will make us stop, and it's an opportunity to talk about them on this podcast.
10/09 05:48 - Idle Thumbs 227: Quiet The Clown
Roughly 50 percent of this podcast is about Metal Gear Solid V, but we somehow manage to sneak in a tidbit here and there about our time with Satellite Reign and completing Lara Croft GO, Danielle's adventures with a real live clown, and a surprise-filled bag of candy for the video game baby.
03/09 16:13 - Idle Thumbs 226: "Console Wars and Hedge Dog" or "The New Far Cry 2"
Get carried away on our balloon of delight as we dive into Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, a game that stirs up memories of something we loved dearly, long ago. Then, we'll let you in on the "Sad Space Dads" craze that has taken the gaming world by storm. If that isn't enough, stick with us...
28/08 03:46 - Idle Thumbs 225: Read Our Lips
Read Our Lips: It's-a me. This week's episode may require you to use your imagination a little more than usual. Danielle plays the hell out of Super Mario Maker but as for her final verdict, you'll have to read between the lines. Chris and Spaff play the almost indescribable Pipedreamz and...
19/08 23:30 - Idle Thumbs 224: Ms. Petman
You are a mess, humanity. Your criminal investigators are a joke at best, and your justice system is terrifying and weird at worst. Your cyber security is easily bypassed, with commands that seem almost fictional. You cannot even assemble your own furniture. It's probably best we just take it...
12/08 20:03 - Idle Thumbs 223: Troll Clone Today
Welcome to our tour of nightmares. When on the tour please do not bully our security robot. In this, our first chamber, we keep our rejected user-generated Sonic the Hedgehog characters. Sorry, no, you can't turn the limb physics off; they just move that way all the time. To the left, our Fallout...
07/08 21:14 - Idle News Podblast: Her Story Spoilercast
Our long-awaited Her Story spoilercast is here! We sat down to discuss our thoughts on Sam Barlow's excellent FMV murder mystery, from its mechanics to the nuances of its plot. If you haven't completed the game, you will be spoiled!
06/08 02:09 - Idle Thumbs 222: The Bubble Guy
This week we engage a randomly-rolled Steve "Hot Scoops" Gaynor for a series of increasingly-escalating heists and near escapes in The Swindle. Though he is cut down in his prime?side-swiped by a rainbow- and dollar bill-emitting enemy vehicle?it looks impressive as hell when the resulting...
30/07 01:42 - Idle Thumbs 221: Meet the Kerfluffles
As the world closes in, you sit alone in a dark room, sweaty and tense, your eyes unwavering from the events unspooling on the monitor. Animatronic pizza creatures are clawing at the door. Shelter dwellers demand answers after months of forced breeding, papal collusion, and suspected...
22/07 17:36 - Idle Thumbs 220: Life Finds a Way
This week we guess at how life might begin, and are shown many ways it might end. Here, in the middle, is a podcast. Spaff evolves while showing off Gang Beasts at Evo, Chris weighs the value of a new life versus a long and celebrated one after some startling developments in his Fallout Shelter,...
15/07 23:42 - Idle Thumbs 219: Idiots Laughing
Join us on an accidental tour of our own history of first person shooting, from Doom to the new game that is also just called Doom. We also play a fan-made mod sequel to Portal 2, discuss Activision's baffling foray into first party total conversion modding with the upcoming Call of Duty Zombies...
08/07 23:59 - Idle Thumbs 218: Yanis' Last Move
Unlike some, we live in a bountiful place. A place where the stars stretch out before you, full of life and endless, a place where soccer is played by not just Mario but glowey demons and even cars, a place where every gun is unique even if that is the last thing you want. We live there so enjoy...
01/07 22:40 - Idle Thumbs 217: To Have a Life
You strap on your VR headset and log on to the terminal. It's a Windows 95 system: you know this. You rifle through dozens of unsorted video clips revealing a fractured prophecy of inevitable robot domination. Sinister, shadowy figures dance and leap in the periphery of your vision. You glance...
24/06 21:45 - Idle Thumbs 216: Super Hypercast
After years away, we found ourselves this week trapped in surreal spaces filled with otherworldly lights and sounds, dodging indistinct figures that triggered sensory responses unlike any offered in the normal world. We wore virtual reality headsets, and we went to E3.
17/06 23:06 - Idle Thumbs 215: Flirtation & Procreation
Abandoned and alone, Chris and Nick hunker down in the studio while everyone else braves the harsh wastelands of E3. Join us for an intimate and lively chat about social simulation, our fantasies of a historical New York city builder, video game sweaters, our inevitable AI-dominated future, and...
10/06 22:14 - Idle Thumbs 214: Ship It, Droopy
It's a raucous week on Idle Thumbs. D4 brings out Danielle's chowder-championing inner New Englander, Chris can't stop collecting cats, Spaff spoils Life is Strange, and Nick descends into a virtual reality waking dream. Here's Droopy McCool to play us out. Let's give him a round of applause.
03/06 19:46 - Idle Thumbs 213: Build the Nublar
Terraforming is complete. The fences are placed. Administrative staff is happy, buzzing away in their newly-zoned facility. This is it. This one will be perfect. But no, work halts: An error message. The face on your screen is not one you recognize. It's definitely not Dr. Wright. "Ah ahh ahh."...
28/05 01:32 - Idle Thumbs 212: DMCA Dad
Lies are told, governments fall, goats are visited, flatulent messages are decoded inaccurately, secrets are conveyed in whisper and then forgotten, and E3 is predicted with unprecedented precision. Adventure, thrills, titillation await.
20/05 23:50 - Idle Thumbs 211: Spector's Oil
Danielle continues to tear through every major release thrown her way, Spaff disappears into a brutal world of trial-by-drum-and-bass, Chris wishes he would suddenly lose control of parts of his body at random in group situations, and Jake thinks he has played a video game once in his life, but...
14/05 05:17 - Idle Thumbs 210: Pro Fish Smart Fish
Pro Fish Smart Fish, Dice and Card Fish / Diablo III and StarCraft II, Twilight Struggle and Defcon too / A week of draws and decks and rolls, of seats too hot and wars too cold / That's this week's podcast at a glance, its half-rhymes masked with assonance.

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
02/09 15:17 - [EchoPlayer] An Extra Life
EchoPlayer.com expires on the 9th October and I’m finally leaving that domain name behind. However, for those of you who have stumbled across this site in its past 5 years of life, I’m continuing it through the aptly named An Extra Life. It’s currently in development and...
21/09 08:30 - [Industry] Console User Interface
If there’s one thing that this console generation has brought - aside from increased technical-wizardry and possible motion gimmickry - it’s more-sophisticated graphical user interfaces. The PlayStation3’s XrossMediaBar, Xbox 360’s Dashboard and the Wii’s…...
20/09 09:00 - [Culture] Favourite Games?
Although perhaps not the best example of gaming’s social acceptance, it is quite telling that neither MySpace nor Facebook - the two largest social networking sites on the web - currently feature a designated area for you to input your “Favourite Games”.
You can tell the...
19/09 09:00 - [News] Theme My PSP
The recent 3.70 firmware update for the PSP has brought along the option of official custom themes for the device.
Available to download from the UK PlayStation site, the majority are related to a certain game and are quite cumbersome to use - except the excellent Cookies theme (I’ll...
18/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Destroy All Humans Again
Following the previous nostalgia-tinged post, I thought I’d now take a look at Destroy All Humans, as it too features a prominent and memorable setting - a humorous portrayal of 1950’s USA. Again, this is a past review of mine, at the time of the game’s release. A sequel has...
17/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Way Beyond Good & Evil
Writing about the joy of exploring Rapture in Bioshock brought back fond memories of my time exploring another distinctive and rich world - Hillys, in the seminal Beyond Good & Evil. For old time’s sake here’s a look at a review I wrote way back when (slightly tarted-up). If you...
14/09 09:25 - [News] PS3VR
Early next year Sony is set to release PlayTV in certain PAL territories (including the UK, thankfully), allowing people to watch and record digital television on their PS3 through a combined TV tuner and personal video recorder.
Although Freeview players are becoming cheaper and more...
13/09 19:06 - [News] Newsbyte 01
Yakuza 3 confirmed for PS3. Sadly it’s currently Japan only, like no.2.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction dated. October in USA, November over here.

13/09 18:50 - [EchoPlayer] Newsbyte 00
Although staying abreast of all the happenings in the gaming world is interesting and exciting, it’s also quite laborious at times. Unless you have something particularly noteworthy to report, you often end up recycling what everyone else has already said - with the majority of it being...
13/09 09:10 - [Upcoming] Behind the Killzone
After E3 2007’s showing of Killzone 2, my interest in the game has grown exponentially. Visually it was actually pretty close to the pre-rendered trailer that was shown many moons ago - rivaling Crysis in many respects. Atmospherically it seems to be very strong - hopefully it won’t...
24/09 22:40 - [Old Portables] New GBA Model Released (Not Micro)
In officially the quietest launch ever, Nintendo released a new version of the GBAsp in America. Absolutely nothing changed? apart from the screen. It?s significantly brighter. And it?s backlit, not sidelit. The joy.
Also, the button which previously toggled brightness on and off now...
23/09 22:36 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS WiFi Details in October
At Iwata?s fact filled TGS speech he also talked a bit about the upcoming WiFi service for the DS. It?s set to launch in November worldwide and Iwata said that full details will come in October.
So stay tuned for that.
23/09 22:35 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS Price Cut (predicted it you know?)
Yup, today NoE announced a price cut for the NDS taking effect from the 7th of October.  This coincides with the launch of 2 new DS bundles.
The console on it?s own will now cost £89.99 and the brand new pink DS with Nintendogs Dachshund version will retail for...
06/09 22:37 - [Sony PSP Games] 185,000 PSPs sold in 4 days.
Sony?s PSP console has become the fastest-selling games console of all time in the UK, selling a huge 185,000 units in its first four days on sale, perhaps even more via the online markets.
High street store enjoyed an incredible weekend, grossing a whopping £33.3 million in hardware...
18/08 22:20 - [General] Xbox 360 Launch Details
Yesterday afternoon, Microsoft announced the plans for the Xbox 360 launch at the Games Developer conference.
Although Microsoft did not state when the launch date will be, we were all given the much talked price and bundles. I can reveal that there will be two separate bundles available to...
17/08 22:17 - [Old Portables] GBA Micro Dated
The third iteration of the Game Boy Advance will hit Europe on November 4th priced at £69. It?ll come in silver, blue, pink and green colours with more faceplates coming later
Thsi seems to be the latest piece of news in what I expect to be a minor news revolution inorder to ease the...
01/08 22:12 - [Games] Resident Evil 5 details
Announced sometime ago for the PS3 and XBox 360, Resident Evil 5 is naturally set after the previous game and is already looking sumptuous. IGN reports on the latest issue of Famitsu Xbox which includes a new interview with the game?s producer Jun Takeuchi.
Most interestingly is the...
21/07 22:22 - [Sony PSP Games] PSP Games Priced
Sony has been contacting retailers and telling them how much first party PSP games are going to cost. After spending £179.99 on the value pack you will then have to spend £34.99 to buy games like Wipeout and Ridge Racer.
So, despite having to wait 6 months for launch and having...
30/06 22:11 - [Consoles, General] Japan not keen on Xbox 360. Loves PS3 and Wii.
It would seem that despite a solid E3, Microsoft are still having problems cracking the Japanese market. Famitsu did a survey of the gaming public, asking what next gen console they were most interested in. 42.2% said they prefered the Revolution, 39.8% went for the PS3 and a pathetic 18% went...
31/05 22:09 - [Games Based on Movies] Peter Jackson’s & EA’s King Kong Game
Eurogamer has a nice selection of shots from Peter Jackson?s King Kong the upcoming game based on the, naturally, upcoming movie.
Unlike the majority of film tie ins, produced by EA and the like (mainly EA), which are quite horrendous, this game is worth your attention as it?s being...
