Doom Ray

Doom Ray August 26th 2014: Guardians Of The Galaxy

In this episode of Doom Ray Kyle and Toby discuss Guardians of the Galaxy. In this screaming fan girl edition of the show questions asked include: Is this the birth of the new Star Wars? Where and how does it fit into the wider Marvel universe? And, is Chris Pratt the sexiest man alive? (the answer is yes...yes he is).

Doom Ray August 20th 2013: Gunpoint and Shadowrun

In the latest episode of the Doom Ray games show regular host Kyle Jobson and Toby Rutter discuss the massive commercial and critical success of the indie title Gunpoint. They also discuss the new Harebrained Schemes RPG Shadowrun. Is this a cyberpunk classic or does it hit a little wide of the mark? Thanks for listening. 

Doom Ray July 26th 2013: Batman vs. Superman

In this week's Doom Ray–in the absence of Ashley–Kyle and Toby discuss the highs and lows of superhero games. From Superman 64 to Batman Arkham City and everything in between. They also touch upon the subject of the up-and-coming Batman vs Superman film. Enjoy the show and, as always, stay classy San Diego.


Doom Ray July 14th 2013: Is Bigger Better?

 Following the success of our Rezzed special, regular Doom Ray host Kyle Jobson reunites with Toby Rutter and Ashley Khan to discuss the age old argument of quality vs quantity. Does a game have to be 100 hours long to offer value for money? Do indie games give you more bang for your buck? This plus a slightly awkward discussion about girls from school. Next week we will be looking at Rockstar's potential magnum opus Grand Theft Auto V. Enjoy and, as ever, thanks for listening.

Doom Ray July 3rd 2013: Funded!

In a follow-up to our obscenely popular interview with Lars Simkins–the one man team behind the ever increasingly impressive Frontiers–we take a more in-depth look into the features that make this game so special. We also talk about the success of the Kickstarter campaign, and the next step on the road to Frontiers. 

Some strong language at the start.

This week regular host Kyle Jobson is joined by Ashley Khan, Dev QA at Codemasters and Toby Rutter Lead Character Artist at Flix Interactive. They discuss the many highs and not so many lows of the Rezzed indie game show that took place in Birmingham UK last weekend. They also take a wider look at the direction of indie games and the renaissance that it seems to be experiencing. Enjoy, and thanks for listening.

Doom Ray Special: Lars Simkins Frontiers Interview Pt. 1

This week's Doom Ray is something a little different. In a two-part epic interview we talk with Lars Simkins, designer of the the incredible-looking Frontiers. An awe-inspiring open world exploration game lovingly created by one man. Lars has a background in VFX with credits that include The Hunger Games, Breaking Bad and the stunning Pushing Daisies. Now he has turned his  considerable talents to games design and the results look nothing short of breath-taking. If you're as blown away by Frontiers as we are, check out the Frontiers Kickstarter and consider backing it. Thanks again to Lars for his time and for giving us a glimpse behind the development of this stunning game.

Part Two is now online here.
