This week on Random Encounters we’re talking a few more of our favorite forgotten gems. Making appearances in the conversation are Super Paper MarioThe Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher BayTearawayOddworld: Stranger’s WrathPuppeteer, and Risk of Rain.

But before that we open up a bit about what’s been keeping us busy for the last week or so. Stardew Valley is a game that can absolutely suck you in, so be careful before you pop that one on. And who knew a little farming town could have such a dark background?

Bioshock HD comes in for a bit of play as well, and depending on how you remember it, you might be somewhat shocked about how well it still holds up, minus the lack of dual-wielding of course.

Tune on in for all of this and more.
