The Electronic Wireless Show podcast episode 206: the most relatable characters in games

Following our Halloween particular final week, The Digital Wi-fi Present podcast right this moment strikes away from the monstrous to the relatable (which in our case doesn’t preclude monstrosity). We discuss concerning the characters that we relate to most, and in addition I discover a method to point out Saturnalia once more. Tune in subsequent week to see if I can sustain my streak!

Matthew being away this week implies that Nate takes on the position of the anti-Matthew, and we speculate about which video games we predict Matthew would in all probability discover relatable. For myself and Nate the themes embrace unhappiness and drudgery. However there’s excellent news, as a result of Nate has remembered to make me a Cavern Of Lies this week! Hooray!

You possibly can hear on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud the place you’ll be able to obtain it for later. It’s also possible to now focus on the episode on our Discord channel, which has a devoted room for podcast chat.

It’s also possible to get the RSS feed here or discover it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts.

Music is by Jack de Quidt, who is just too extraordinary to be relatable.


We theorise that Matthew would consider himself as a Yakuza character, we’re simply unsure which.

Nate goes to the Horizon Zero Daybreak effectively and attracts up unhappy bro Erund, who’s a pleasant man simply getting via it.

By way of job drudgery I speak about Papers, Please and the marginally much less grim Wilmot’s Warehouse, the place you’ll be able to type of make your personal enjoyable and job satisfaction whereas finishing up rote duties.

Who would you most relate to out of the solid of Hades? I went for both the luxury boy who does not get on together with his dad, or the anxious head-monster. Nate stated Hades, for a nuanced cause.

In different dad information, Nate does not wish to labour the God Of Battle level. And in semi-related speaking factors, he does just like the unhappy giants in The Banner Saga.

Arguably there are some relatable moments in Crusader Kings when somebody unexpectedly has to take over the throne once they simply wished to be a pleasant European weirdo spare royal.

I associated to unhappy younger adults just like the protagonists in Life Is Unusual or hell-drinking sim Afterparty

I type of do not relate to the characters in Saturnalia as a result of I’d simply disguise inside by the hearth till every little thing had blown over.

Basically, although, we relate quite a bit to the grim NPCs making an attempt to develop cabbages or what have you ever in RPGs like The Witcher 3 or Bloodborne.

Suggestions this week are Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curosities, with specific reference to Crispin Glover’s excessive Crispin Glovering in episode 5, and All Quiet On The Western Front – each on Netflix.
