I feel like Below has gotten to that dog pile stage where an initial bad taste (the intro, perhaps) just leads to hyperbole and fashionable hate. Even in this podcast, you guys were a little inaccurate with the criticism. The game leads you along more than you indicated. The grass trails really do lead you directly to where you're supposed to go.

Yeah, sure the game is a fairly ruthless rogue-like, and that's not everyone's cup-o-tea, but it actually does a real nice job of leading you just enough to make you feel like you've discovered something without being a complete open ended situation with zero guidance like a lot of folks seem to be saying.

Though I don't think you all realized, this was a very Xbox Game Pass heavy episode! Below, Ashen, and Kingdom Two Crowns are all free on Game Pass, as are, from your top ten list (spoilered in case people don't want to know):


Gardens Between and State of Decay 2. I think there may have been another Game Pass game in your 10-6, but I can't remember what it might have been off the top of my head.

Anywhere to access yall's top 10 lists?

Once next week's show is up the GWJ staff top tens will end up on the front page. We'll list them in there!

When GRIS went gold, did they call it AmberGRIS?

I’ll show myself out.
