    Hey guys, I’m finally doing some “mindNumbing” work and have a chance to listen 🙂

    Tryggvi, knowing your taste, you should stay away from A Handmaids Tale: it’s too real and very bleak = I love it (it matches my dark soul) 😀

    Give Killing Eve a shoot – for some macabre light-hearted fun 😉

    Rune, I’m waiting for a PS4 sale before purchasing Detroit. Beyond: Two Souls didn’t warrant the full price.

    Didn’t get a chance to hear the review – but I really enjoyed the banter – great stuff guys 😀

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Well, Jim, I tried getting into Beyond: Two Souls, but decided to stop – it wasn’t worth my time being a parent and all 😉 I completely understand why that would’ve turned you off Detroit: Become Human, but I am here to assure you that this feels MUCH better. I would go so far to say it harkens back to the Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) days, but with much more believable visuals and acting. It is one of the first games I have ever played, where I feel like my actions have very tangible and lasting effects. For my money, it is totally worth full price.

      Also, for the visuals; they really did an astounding job on the teeth!

    Cheers Jim!
    I don’t know if you’re listening to the latest one, but we have started The Handmaids Tale and I’m not a huge fan. Although I respect most of the craftsmanship, I just don’t get “horrible for the sake of horrible” mantra. Also, the premise bothers me a little as I have more faith in the human spirit than this. Having seen only 6 episodes, my feeling is that this show is taking itself a little too seriously. I hope it picks up a bit as we are still hanging in there.. Down but not out 🙂
    I hope we can help with the mind-numbing stuff Jim and I appreciate the feedback!
