The old 45 isn’t just a slang term for an LP, it’s also the latest episode of Random Encounters.

We start things off this week with Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, the more old school of the recent Tomb Raider releases and a great time for anyone looking for a bit of couch co-op action.

Next up is Final Fantasy III. Though not the most remarkable game in the series by a longshot, FFIII is a nice little piece of nostalgia for anyone who still remembers when this series was about 4 warriors of light and a certain crystal.

Finally, in our main topic, we look back at 10 years of the PS3, exploring the ups and downs for Sony’s Rocky story of a console. How did Sony possibly come back from the beating they were taking earlier in the generation? Listen in to find out.

Review: ‘Absolver’ – The Alchemist’s Punch

Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.

‘The Elder Scrolls Online’: There’s No Place Like… Anywhere Else

I wasn't simply drawn back by the fanboy nostalgia for one of the titles that helped shape my gaming tastes to this day. No, the decision was primarily taken because remembering what games like this meant to me back during my illness made me consider what it was that I found so appealing about them, and ESO in particular.
