This Week at Remap

Patrick Klepek

The past week was less restful than I’d hoped, a combination of solo parenting two kids while my wife recovered from COVID, wondering when and if the rest of us would wake up with COVID, trying to navigate whether nine days after testing positive is enough distance to attend Thanksgiving, and finally, if your three-year-old throwing up several times on a drive to Wisconsin is a sign that she’s motion sick or sick sick. Thankfully, none of us seemed to contract COVID, but nine days was not 10 days, so my wife spent Thanksgiving at home with the family she’d contracted COVID from, who was still recovering themselves. Oh, and it turns out it was motion sick and not sick sick. Still, it was a very gross drive to Wisconsin.

  • MONDAY: Patrick interviewed the developers of Hi-Fi Rush (again!) and Blasphemous 2 (for the first time!), as part of his ongoing interview series.
  • TUESDAY: We mapped out the next few weeks of Remap, ahead of the holidays and how we’re handling the holidays. (It’s pretty similar to last year.) We also committed to A Cool Idea that we can’t talk about for a few months.
  • WEDNESDAY: Remap Radio will record a lil’ early this week (feat: Janet).
  • THURSDAY: Patrick and Cado only scratched part of their King’s Field itch with The Ancient City, and will scratch more with the Field’s-inspired Lunacid.
  • FRIDAY: Remap Radio hits podcast feeds, while Cado checks out a bunch of the new content in Destiny 2. (Patrick will try to join them, time permitting.)
  • P.S. Over the break, we published two podcasts, including the conclusion of My Turn, covering Michael Bay’s Armageddon, and an After Dark functioning as a postmortem for the launch of Remap’s website. Movie and TV podcasts return in early 2024, under a tweaked format. Your suggestions are welcome!
