Summer is ending, and what better way to kick off Spooky Season than Demons and Heavy Metal? Patrick has been spending time in Metal: Hellsinger, the rhythm shooter that artfully blends heavy metal with skeleton killing. Then, Ren brings us a look at Gloomwood, a Thief-inspired boomer shooter, which then leads us into a discussion about why Thief’s magic hasn’t been recaptured (yet). After the break, we learn Rob’s checking our next 101, System Shock, and enter into a lengthy Question Bucket that’ll likely make you squeamish.
