This week we welcome back previous guest Jordan Erica Webber to join us in a good old natter about just how much Alien: Isolation terrified Cara (extremely) and whether it can fulfil its impressive promises. We also end up talking about The Sims a lot. Did you know procedurally generated Friends episodes are a thing in The Sims? They totally are, and they’re terrifying. Meanwhile Cara asks us what we’re looking forward to in 2014 and we answer a barrelful of questions, including ones on usefulness of Steam Machines and the appeal of Euro Truck Simulator.
- Cara’s alien preview
- Alice and Kev, Robin Burkinshaw’s excellent tale of homelessness in The Sims.
- Steve Hoggarty’s review of The Sims 2: Ikea Stuff.
- Garfield minus Garfield is disturbing and surreal.
- Tom Armitage made the Friends thing Cara talks about, but we couldn’t find a link to it.
- Adam Smith on Eurotruck Simulator.
- Steve Hoggarty drives around in Eurotruck Simulator.
