This week on Random Encounters we’re talking a few more of our favorite forgotten gems. Making appearances in the conversation are Super Paper Mario, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, Tearaway, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, Puppeteer, 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.

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.
'Batman and Harley Quinn' doesn't hold a candle to the 90s show it's inspired by, but fans could do worse.
Hostiles is an admirably executed work about accessing the damage done to the collective psyche of western America in the late 19th century.
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.
