My Little Riding Champion is finally here and Luke made it out of the escape room just in time! Furries, Luke may or may not wish to speak with you but dry cleaners should definitely write in. This (probably) makes sense in context so you should just press play now.
Luke continues to have strong feelings about Fallout, but thankfully there's always another horse game on the horizon. Oh and if people could stop making Playstation exclusives, that would be great.
Luke tries to take his mind off being stuck in Fallout by experiencing the trauma most Australian schoolkids went through in grade three when they read Storm Boy for the first time. He also flashbacks to playing Flashback... 25 years ago when it first came out. But, as is his way, it always comes back to horses.
"The spiritual successor to My Horse and Me Two" - what game could Luke possibly be describing? Leave your Fallout shelter, forget about shape-shift detecting and join us for another gin-soaked adventure.
You could say that it's been a week pax-ed with excitement but there's no time for wordplay when there's a whole wave of up-and-coming games, developers and studios to cover!
Luke gets back into the swing of things after surgery by playing Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. Unfortunately he cannot share his patented pain meds and gin combo with listeners - the audio is a bit rough this week folks. But hey, why not hear what we sound like in person and say hi at PAX?
This has been a week of personal growth for Luke as he fulfills a promise to a fan and prepares for the surgery that will see him transition to a whole new platform for the foreseeable future. Hannah is also concerned that Luke has spent many hours in Forza 4 but cannot accurately state which country he's been driving in, but that's what happens when you drive under the influence of clear liquids in the comfort of your own home.
This week we ask the real questions - can Luke really pick a game of the week without playing it? Is Waluigi invited to the party? Who is in charge of Red Dead Redemption's horse testicles? Also if Elon Musk could please buy Telltale Games that'd be great.
Telltale Games is no longer telling tales and it's probably Hannah's fault. Luke has (finally) finished Tomb Raider and is annoyed at an unrelated flower festival.
This week on Save File... Luke is not interested in backstories, context, Jumanji without the Rock or changing his outfit multiple times just to raid tombs. He is very excited to announce the PAX competition winner and play some classic games on the Switch. Hannah also appears.
We ask our listeners for a lot of things this week (unwavering support; to get Luke’s audition tape as a Shenmue voice actor into the right hands) but we also give a lot in return. In addition to Luke’s general edicts on whether we should be excited or terrified about upcoming games such as the Grand Tour and Delivery us the Moon, Luke also offers (threatens?) to hug visitors in the street. What more could you ask for? No ads? Steam keys? A dedicated Save File email address? Mysterious announcements about an upcoming competition? Don’t worry, we have those too!
This week, Luke needs all the dating advice he can get from Super Seducer as Hannah is remarkably unsympathetic to the loss of his favourite hat. The tragedy continues as he finishes Telltale Games' final chapter of The Walking Dead, loses a bit of steam in We Happy Few and ads return to Twitch. But there's a week of Shenmue I and II to look forward to, plus a free steam key for a lucky listener so it's not all bad news.
This week on Save File, Luke has a Save Fail when he admits to getting flirting tips from Super Seducer. We learn about some new career options, Hannah discovers that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is not even remotely spooky and Luke shares his upcoming games of the week. Twitch followers already saw us "play" #WarGames and everyone is invited to watch us argue our way through Overcooked 2.
The second episode of Getting Cozy is here for your listening pleasure!Once again Luke is joined by his wife Hannah to talk the latest in games.
We're very proud to present the first episode of Getting Cozy - Luke's new podcast about video games!He followed through on something he said he was going to do and we're all very impressed.The plan is for this to become a weekly show so once we have a few episodes ready to go we'll be splitting it off into it's own podcast.Let us know what you think: [email protected] or click on the social media button at the top of the page to find us in other places on the webs.
