Games

When asked, Holly was most surprised by Bioshock - a franchise which Liam & Laura have enjoyed in-depth, a few times over. Bioshock is a lore-rich franchise, taking place in an under-water dystopian ruin. We highly recommend Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

If you're interested in some of the other titles we discussed, please see the following links: Minecraft; Dance Dance Revolution (DDR);

Liam & Ben did, in the end, get round to playing some Hydro Thunder on PSOne. You can watch the entire thing unfold below, in all it's pixelated glory!
