Podcast The Electronic Wireless Show episode 188: special the best noble failures of video games

This week on the Electronic Wireless Show PC gaming podcast, we talk about the best of our favorite noble failures, like the time I tried to make feta and red onion muffins. Haven’t touched the muffin tin since. No, sure, these are our favorite video games that took big leaps but didn’t quite hit, a theme supported by Nate Crowley – and he kicks us off with a discussion of the infamous Jurassic Park tie-in. Trespass. Try spelling “Jurassic” correctly the first time; I too have never been able to.

Diversions this week discuss classic British underground tourist attractions Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge, and how Matthew’s life might have been different had he been Wookey Hole’s witch mascot. Nate bought a model kit for one of these huge digging machines, which he says is “about as big as an Alsatian” and “essentially a trash bag full of beams”. So he’s turning it into an Orc sewage treatment plant. Standard week to be honest.

Connections
Obviously yes, Trespasser, the game where you had to look at a tattoo on your chest to check how much health you had left.

The Council worked so that Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong could also work, but better.

Vampyr is the worst vampire game to ever have a truly brilliant take on blood as a leveling resource. It was really almost brilliant!

Also, the “no quest markers” idea in The Sinking City was a really good idea that didn’t pan out in practice, when you were basically doing manual Google maps.

We also discuss whether Spore is a noble failure. Answer: maybe??

Papa eel fills a pit under his house with eels.
