Creepy, quasi-religious cults seem to be all the rage in games this year, with heavy hitters like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and now Far Cry 5 using them as major plot points - so this week, erstwhile hosts Brett Elston and Henry Gilbert rejoin the show for a look at five of gaming's most unsettling and influential cults. Then it's time to dive into Star Trek: Bridge Crew, Friday the 13th, Danger Zone, Sonic Mania, and the arcade games you wish had gotten a home release.
