A short, late show (sorry!) this week as half the team is wracked by sickness and general poor health. Nonetheless! We celebrate the cold, clammy embrace of Tuesday’s PS4 release Octodad: Dadliest Catch, catch up on inFAMOUS Second Son’s groundbreaking Photo Mode and FEZ’s mindbending puzzle design, share an incredibly valuable Dark Souls II listener tip and reveal those coveted new releases for Tuesday, April 22nd.
Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a PS4 game where you play an octopus masquerading as a human, trying to get through your daily life. Unfortunately, since you have no bones, doing even the simplest task without revealing yourself to your normal human wife and kids can become quite the challenge. Part of the joy of Octodad is making him fumble and flop around, and we’d like to announce that we are bringing that joy into the real world with PlayStation Move support! You, too, can flail your arms like an octopus! (Don’t worry; you can still use a DualShock 4 if you’re feeling timid.)
Have you ever felt out of place? Just don’t feel you’re good enough, no matter how hard you try? Maybe you’ve got something to hide from the world. Maybe you’re not really the perfect human husband and father of three, but actually an octopus. This is what Octodad: Dadliest Catch is all about. You have a loving wife. You have adorable kids. They, however, have no idea of your secret cephalopod nature.
