Weekly: a closer look at Pride Week, lamb cults, and more

Recapping the last week for you.

Today on the Weekly show, we're talking Pride Week, as well as recapping the rest of Eurogamer for you.

My guests wrote some of the wonderful pieces we published as part of Pride Week last week. They are show newcomers Ed Nightingale, a news reporter on Eurogamer - who you'll recognise from the Newscast - and, all the way from tabletop land, Dicebreaker senior staff writer Alex Meehan. Alex often writes the Dicebreaker Recommends posts you see on Eurogamer each month.

Ed helped organise Pride Week this year so we begin with his thoughts on it, before moving onto his interview with the first openly trans eSports caster, Eli "Captain Fluke". She's blazing a trail in the Rainbow Six Siege and Valorant worlds and helping power a self-fulfilling loop of change there.

Alex, meanwhile, wrote about how a visual novel game called Arcade Spirits: The New Challengers provided her with a safe space to enjoy her sexuality away from the preconceptions and pressure sometimes attached to it. She also wrote about loud and proud tabletop RPG Thirsty Sword Lesbians, calling it "a glorious escape from inhibition".

I also talk a bit about my Pride Week interview with Mr Dragon Age, David Gaider. It was a genuine career highlight, that one.

You can catch up with everything you might have missed in Pride Week in our handy roundup article. It was a brilliant week. A big shout out to Matt Wales for putting it together, and to Lottie Lynn and Ed for helping him.

New faces! The wonderful Ed Nightingale and Alex Meehan.

Also on Weekly, we talk about super-exciting new Devolver game Cult of the Lamb, which I've just fallen in love with; we take a closer look at timeline-altering horror game Eternal Threads, which Vikki has just reviewed; and we whisk through the recent Nintendo Direct, singling out the announcements that stood out to us. Ed manages to also talk about Lady D stepping on him again as he looks forward to Resident Evil Village DLC, Shadows of Rose. That, plus everything else that caught my eye around the site last week.

I'm Bertie, this was Weekly, and we'll see you next week.
