The first (official) episode of the Waffling Taylors podcast is here!

A couple of things that you need to know going in:

  • We have the microphone!

I have a Blue Yeti microphone

Thanks to Djstump for this, by the way

and what’s better is that I brought it with me this time. So the audio recording should be a much higher quality.

  • Colds abound

I’ve done what I can to remove the few coughs and sniffles that ended up in the recording, but a few are still present. I’m sorry if the sound of Squidgey-Fidget sniffling a few times weirds you out.

  • Language

Whilst we don’t swear on the podcast, we do use the words `boobs` and `sex`. These are in the context of defining actions or features of both Jurassic Park Tresspasser and The Sims.

As such, we recommend that you give this episode a listen without the presence of little ones (or folks who might be offended by the uses of those words).

External Links of interest

Links to the music used in the podcast can be found below. Definitely check them out, because they’re amazing tracks by awesome musicians.

Things We Got Wrong

Occassionaly we get things wrong. In this episode we go the following things wrong:

Parasite Eve in Europe

I incorrectly said that Parasite Eve had a censored European release. This is wrong.

Parasite Eve has never been released (officially) in Europe. I’ve been unable to track down specifically why

Leave us a comment below if you know why. We’d love to know.


We sometimes find things out about a game that we discuss on a podcast, after it’s been recored and published.


There is a really Wilamette in Illinois. There was also one in Oregon


Leave a comment in the section on this page

or by heading to if you’re listening in a podcatcher

and let us know what you liked, what you didn’t like and which games you’d like to hear us waffle on about next time.

Until then,

Game on!
