Listen to Episode 9 of the Waypoint UK Podcast: Unpicking ‘Persona 5’ and ‘Nier: Automata’

Here be spoilers. Again, HERE BE SPOILERS. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Right. Persona 5's (pictured above, screenshot courtesy of Atlus) been out a while, and Nier: Automata and Breath of the Wild, too. So for this episode of the UK podcast, Kate Gray and Sayem Ahmed are, alongside the regular noise of Mike (me, hi), discussing as many pros and cons about those games as is possible in… let me see… about an hour and a quarter.

There are so many spoilers in this podcast, seriously guys, so many spoilers. So if you don't want spoilers, for any of the above games, go and listen to something else


Sayem, alas, can't join us "in the studio", so do forgive the audio quality on his Skype call. But as the man who interviewed the directors of both Persona 5 and Nier: Automata for Waypoint, he's absolutely the right dude to be talking about these awesome games, right now.

Kate, meanwhile, has plenty to say about Zelda. As do I (and yes, I have a bit of a cold), especially on its unexpected really dark side. And there's more besides! We address some reader/listener questions, and have a lovely chat about how our favourite sweets might go down amongst the Mass Effect universe's Krogan population. They could suck a fruit pastille, couldn't they? Also: kissing. Mostly in reference to this.
