Ready to face what lurks in the shadows? No? What if you had... A DOG? Greg Moore rejoins us this week for a look at five horror games that pit you and a canine partner against unspeakable terrors, after which we'll get into The Good Life, be surprised about God of War coming to PC, and look at the settings you'd like to see in more horror games.

Metroid Dread has launched the series in a suspenseful new direction, and given us an excuse to spend this week talking about some of our favorite horror games set in space, with special guest Alex Faciane of Chilluminati and Super Beard Bros! Then it's on to (of course) Metroid Dread, Back 4 Blood, the official announcement of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy, and the childhood toys you think deserve great videogame adaptations.

There's something inherently eerie about an empty or abandoned hotel - especially if it's only been abandoned by the living. With Framework's Tony Wilson on board for our second week of Spooptober '21, let's look at five highly memorable haunted hotels, after which we'll talk Far Cry 6, Metroid Dread, Hot Wheels Unleashed, the Twitch hack, and your dream Mario-movie casting.

Today marks the return of Spooptober, when all of our shows are Halloween-themed for a whole month — but since it's just getting started, let's ease in with guest Greg Moore and five games that let you play as a psychopomp, someone who guides the dead into the afterlife (or, y'know, just punches their ticket, one way or another). Then we'll pivot to ActRaiser Renaissance, Death Stranding Director's Cut, Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye, last week's Nintendo Direct (including THAT casting news), and whether you like episodic games better than stories you get all at once.
