Games With Toasty Supercast #1 - Talking About Hype, Diablo 2, Metroidvanias and Yooka-Laylee?
Welcome to the first, and slightly experimental, episode of the Games With Toasty Supercast! What makes the cast super? I dunno, it just sound cool I guess. Instead of tackling one topic, I aim to cover a bunch of subjects and talk about a bunch of cool gaming stuff. Slide on into the toaster and dial that nob to roughly 2.7 - things are going to get crispy.

Off Brand Toast - NHS Mental Health Services Are A State
Today I do something a bit different. I wanted to do something a bit more serious, and less about the games industry and so thought I would make a spinoff segment called Off Brand Toast. This episode was quite the rollercoaster for me to even start, let alone record. It's just me talking about my story, and discussing why the NHS needs to be better.

Dealing With Game Difficulty and Parenting
Today I take a look at difficulty in gaming and how it applies to kids and parents. Difficulty is always a touchy subject, and I thought I would once again shed a bit of light on the matter, this time from a perspective not commonly considered.

Let's Talk About Easy Modes In Dark Souls...AGAIN
Since Darks Souls inception there have been discussions, debates, arguments and wars over whether or not it requires an easy mode. It is a battle that gets waged every couple of years, usually around the launch or announcement of a new game in the series. With Elden Ring bounding onto the scene, it's that time again and I thought I would chip in my opinion...hopefully for the last time.
