Episode 14-5 Creative Games with Chris Baines

  1. Oh, and now that I’ve finished the episode…….That No Man’s Sky OST is SO GOOD. I heard a track on VGMJB and promptly bought the whole enchilada. The drumming sounds a lot like Civil Twilight, but with some beautiful synth work straight out of SURVIVE and the like.

    Oh, and being from the West Coast, where we’re deprived of Herr’s, whenever you guys talk about them, it reminds me of The Office episode where Jim and Karen go on a search for a bag……which results in one of my favorite Andy quotes: “Did you check…..your butt?”

    There was also an Arrested Development quote in this episode, wasn’t there?

    1. Oh geez, sometimes we quote shows and I can’t remember, though it’s almost always The Simpsons.

      So yeah! The Office takes place in Scranton PA which is middle-PA, but closer to the east side 🙂 and Herrs is big Pennsylvania brand! They were searching out the salt and vinegar variety of chips, which I believe is the superior chip, but Pernell’s the one who eats during recording haha!

      I just started No Man’s Sky a few weeks ago, and it’s great! But I feel like it’s punishing me for not knowing what to do right away, which is a little annoying. So lots of trial and error and suffocating in the vacuum of space. GREAT MUSIC though!
