The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast Episode 158: The Best Spacecraft In Special Games
In honor of the new DLC for Outer Wilds, this week on The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast, we discuss our favorite spaceships in the games. In the process, as we discuss some games, there is a lot of talk about the origin of the spaceship as a “space house” – the central area where all of your friends hang out – both in the games and in the larger space media. Plus, Nate has a big Star Wars themed cave of lies, and indeed gives us a terrible scare.
This week’s digressions are a great discussion of Matthew’s dental situation, and a semi-argument on what planetary circumstances would be sufficient for me to agree to go to space (e.g. a planet covered with a very good Soupe). Also: is Elon Musk’s divorce the origin story of Warhammer 40k?
You can listen on Spotify, or higher, or go directly on Soundcloud where you can download it for later. You can also now chat about the episode on our Discord channel, which has a room dedicated to podcast chat.
The music is by Jack de Quidt, much more ethical than your average space billionaire.
In space, no one can see your merchandise.
We are obviously talking about Outer Wilds, but also The Outer Worlds.
Nate remembers the huge ships in Free Space 2 and talks about how he found FTL “simple”, even though it is an incredibly tense game.
Tell yourself what else feels like home: Normandy in Mass Effect! Knights Of The Old Republic also has a good space house.
Dead Space has an incredibly spooky space house.
Do you know who has big ships? Guys in armor in Warhammer 40k.
Rec. this week are for Foundation, the Apple TV + show based on the Asimovs Foundation story series, the new non-fiction book by Shon Faye The transgender issue, and to make a “Ham Bowser,” which Nate has now decreed as a beef and pepper puff pie, with a whole eel inside. Hooray.
