Random Encounter 279 – We Cannot Tell a Lie!

Random Encounter 279 We Cannot Tell a Lie - Artwork of Cyberpunk 2077 and Lies of P

On this week’s Random Encounter, we’re diving into a piece of DLC that redeems one of gaming’s biggest disappointments, a Souls-like that cannot tell a lie, and a classic celebrating its 30th anniversary.

First, Aleks guides us through the shadowy world of Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty. Does this DLC redeem 2020’s Cyberpunk 2077, or does it miss the mark? Following that, Noah takes us into the steampunk-inspired, puppet-filled realm of Lies of P. Does it distinguish itself in the crowded Souls-like genre, or does it deserve to be swallowed by a whale (or shark, depending on which version of Pinocchio you’re familiar with)?

To round out the episode, it’s the 30th anniversary of the classic Squaresoft action RPG, Secret of Mana. Does it still hold its own in today’s gaming landscape? As we’ve recently learned, regardless of your answer, it’s sure to inflame opinions online!

Featuring: Jono Logan, Aleks Franiczek, and Noah Leiter; Edited by Jono Logan
