It's the most wonderful time of the year i.e. the last working week for us at the RPS Treehouse, and therefore the last week of the Electronic Wireless Show podcast for 2023. We take a look back at the year that was, in very broad terms - was 2023, in fact, a good year for games? - share our favourite games of 2023, and talk about the games we're playing right now. It appears Nate is quite unfamiliar with time travel films. We also think up some some resolutions for next year, and you've also got our regular recommendations to look forwards to at the end of the show. Plus, Nate does a thrilling end of year quiz with a question for each month. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
You can listen above, or on on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, or Pocket Casts. You can find the RSS feed here, and you can discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated room for podcast chat.
Music is by Jack de Quidt.
We record on a Wednesday so some things may have changed when you listen to this.
- Many many developers were laid off this year that over a third of all our posts under the "layoffs" ever were from 2023.
- There was a strong reaction to The Game Awards this year. I was also a bitch about it, and I stand by that.
- Some games we liked this year: Hi-Fi Rush, Baldur's Gate 3, World Of Horror, Mediterranea Inferno, Against The Storm, and Rogue Trader.
Recommendations this week are Farrington's Mellow Yellow honey and mustard salad dressing, Netflix show Russian Doll, and secret musical Wonka.
