The Eurogamer Podcast #26 - The return of the Velvet Owl

What a hoot.

By Christian Donlan. 17/01/2017

Oh listen, you know how we never have guests? We have a guest! And listeners to the Golden Era of Eurogamer podcasts - by way of clarity, the current era is the Uranium Era - may recognise Will Porter, also known as The Velvet Owl, also known as the man who's written for video games including but not limited to Alien: Isolation, Need for Speed Shift 2, and No Man's Sky. Also, he used to write for Eurogamer. And some magazines.

Will's here to talk about his work writing games, and about the Nintendo Switch, which you may have noticed now has a price and a release date and a lot of peripherals. We get into all of that, and then I explain the wonders of Mystery Diners. And we talk a bit about the Guardian's Blind Date column. And a bit about Clive James. And an imaginary Nintendo console that you can only play around corners. Frankly, I'm a bit of a liability.
