Horror Movies: “At least my bread”

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the delay in getting this out to you guys, some travelling and working the gruelling ordeal of Le Burger Week got in the way. But, no fear! We are here to feed your gnawing hunger for more Player’s Guide.

This week Jackson has finally subdued, restrained, and…. I mean; has finally convinced Daniel to let him talk about horror movies. Your hosts get into some of their favourites, and what works for them when it comes to horror.

This may seem like an odd topic to be covering now, at the beginning of September, with the most spooky of months just around the corner, but worry not – your hosts have something excellent cooking for Halloween.

They also have some recommendations:

This week you should play Avalon/The Resistance 

This week you should watch Little Witch Academia Season 2 aka anime Harry Potter

Spooky Stories from Friends

Happy Halloween everyone!

This week, in keeping with tradition, Daniel and Jackson are bringing you some premium spook. Unlike past years, though, they have done something a little different. With the help of some of their previous guests, they are bringing you a collection of spooky tales.

These tales range from true-to-life experiences from the guests, to stories from friends, to creepypasta; so turn off the lights, grab some candy, and get ready to have your bones chilled.

Also, some business. The audio effects we used for this podcast were:

Cosmic Horror: Some Form of Obliteration

Hello…

Welcome to another podcast featuring Jackson and Daniel. This one is about… nothing. We have vague recollections of discussing the ins-and-outs of the Cosmic Horror genre… but by now it’s all blackness and static.

The only things survive the haze of madness are these recommendations:

This week you should play Overwatch

This week you should read The Langoliers by Stephen King, which can be found in the collection Four Past Midnight. 

This week you should watch Erase

Ghosts: So Everywhere

Happy Halloween everyone!

On this most spooky of holidays, Daniel and Jackson present to you a podcast about ghosts. Could you really have expected anything else?

Both of your hosts have a soft spot for the ethereal, so there is plenty of good discussion to be had, even if Jackson mis-remembers the details of The Conjuring, and they both forget to mention Ghostbusters – AT ALL! Seriously, what the hell, guys?

Something they didn’t forget, though – recommendations:

This week you should watch We Are What We Are

This week you should play Assault Android Cactus

This week you should read Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

Horror Games: Judging Daniel

Good evening everyone!

To celebrate the second anniversary of Player’s Guide Jackson and Daniel have something special in store. Since there will be three podcasts posted in October, they have decided to devote the entire month to the horrifying.

The first Halloween podcast features Kevin in a discussion about the horror genre in video games. From Silent Hill to Five Nights at Freddie’s, horror and the associated tropes have been a part of gaming for years.

Of course, they also have some recommendations for you:

This week you should read Arkham Asylum – A Living Hell 

This week you should play Undertale

This week you should watch The Babadook 

Bonus: 

If anyone is curious about the indie horror game that Jackson can’t remember the name of – it is The White Chamber.

 

Creepy Pasta: Calling Out the King

Boo! This week we are preparing for Halloween and in order to get you into the mood we’re talking about spooky stories! It turns out, in the internet age, creepypastas are one of the best ways to experience some excellent chills, so we end up talking about them a lot. I have attached a couple of our select favourites below to put you in the mood:

If this isn’t enough for you, we’ve actually managed to keep our recommendations on-theme:

You should read Call of Cthulhu 

You should watch American Horror Story 

You should play Off

Pokemon Halloween: “Hey man, wanna buy a Mew?”

The second podcast has arrived! This time there’s guests, lots of talking about Pokemon, and some things you should watch/read/play before getting your costume on for Halloween.

We’re slowly learning the ropes or recording and working WordPress. Our current priority is figuring out a way to make the podcasts downloadable for you from this site.

There will also be more blog-type posts released as supplementary material for the podcasts, both Daniel and I will be chiming in with some stuff we may have missed and still want to address.

I hope you enjoy what we’ve got for you this week. On November 9, we’ll channel the lingering scent of evil left over from Halloween and talk about villains.
