Random Encounter 204 – Can Bad Games Ever Be Good?

The banner shows game art of a female with pink hair and a young man with a green pompadour and pink jacket from Cyberpunk 2077, and character art from Fallout 76 featuring a mecha suit and a young, dark-featured man looking intense.

On this episode of Random Encounter, Jono has braved the wastes of
Appalachia in Fallout 76 and, well, it’s not as bad as it once was. Despite not expecting to get into it so soon, Greg has been playing Cyberpunk 2077, and so has Tooker, so they have some thoughts to chat out on this incredibly contentious release. A fun question from our guest panelist and chatter rounds out the episode, so enjoy!

Featuring: Greg Delmage, Jono Logan, John “Tooker” Tucker; Edited by Greg Delmage

As a fan of the RPG oeuvre, it seemed only natural that Greg Delmage should join RPGFan on the Random Encounter podcast (and sometimes reviewer)! When not auditioning or doing what he can at RPGFan, Greg enjoys adventuring with his swell partner Annette, helping raise their daughter, and playing many a board and video game! Want to chat all things Nintendo, Final Fantasy or Harvest Moon? Greg is always down.

You guys said there's a difference between a bad game and a broke game. People get mad about a broken game, while people just move on from a bad game. That's a good take on the reactions between a recent bad game people got over and forgot about (Godfall) vs. the nonstop clusterfuck that Cyberpunk is.

Appreciated. It's not always easy taking an objective view on the games we love heh. I do hope CP2077 gets its act together, though. Thanks for listening as always, WC!
