After the news from the industry, Heinrich and Jörg let the games be games and report what’s new in the world of series, films, music and books.
This is an additional episode for our $5+ Patreon supporters. Here’s how to listen to the full program: https://www.patreon.com/gamesveterans
This time it will take a while before we move to the off-topic departments, because last week was full of current reports with a retro reference. Jörg also reports on his Gamescom-Adventures and Heinrich from his spaceship wear with the youngest R type. A listener question later, we start with our cultural tips for September. Also included: fiery dragons, stressed chefs, tough Swedes, the Sandman and a surprisingly good prequel to the predator-Film.
