#8 Baxter's Top Three - A Chat With Daryl Baxter

The Vault Feb 25, 2019

#36 Vault Theatre - Uncharted (2022) with Mat Roff

#36 Vault Theatre - Uncharted (2022) with Mat Roff

We’re back with a very special, one-off episode with Vault Theatre! Fresh out of the cinema and with our best pal Mat Roff, we take a very deep dive into Tom Holland’s first adventure as Nathan Drake. 

It’s a very spoiler-heavy episode, so you have been warned. Has the film served fans of the game well? Does it live up to the Allan Ungar’s Uncharted Fan Film from 2018? We answer these questions and many more in this episode. If you haven’t checked out our very first episode where we cover Nathan Fillion’s interpretation of Drake, be sure to listen to it HERE

We’ll return later in the year with Series Four and with guests galore - unintentional rhyming for the win. Just as a production note, we’re sharing microphones, so apologies about some of the quieter moments in the episode. 

For more on Mat Roff, be sure to follow him on Twitter

#22 ‘Ooh, Don’t We Keep Harp-ing on!’ – A Soundtrack Special

We’ve always loved talking about the music throughout many a game, so we’ve decided to dedicate an entire episode to talk about our favourite soundtracks in greater depth. Also, there’s a storm brewing, so if you enjoy the soothing sounds of rain, you’re in for a real treat.

Make sure to stick around until the end of the episode where we’ve been lucky enough to be able to include the theme of ‘The Last Revelation’ by Peter Connelly, from ‘The Dark Angel Symphony’. Peter composed the music for Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Tomb Raider Chronicles and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. A franchise that many know is very close to our hearts.

Peter and his team created a Kickstarter campaign to fund ‘The Dark Angel Symphony’, a retelling and an extension of many incredible tracks from the Tomb Raider scores he’s composed over the years.

Find out more about The Dark Angel Symphony by clicking the link below; here you’ll be able to purchase the soundtracks, uncover more about the successful project, get to know the team and treat yourself to some real artefacts.

The Dark Angel Symphony Website

We’d like to give a massive thank you to Peter for allowing us to include one of his tracks in this episode. We hope you enjoy this beautiful piece of music, just as much as we do.

What soundtracks make those fine hairs stand on end for you? Do you agree with some of our picks? Let us know over on Twitter @Vault_Unlocked! Be sure to check out our soundtrack threads on there too, where we’ll be posting the links to these awesome scores and songs.

#18 'That's A Nice Photo!' - The MCM Manchester Comic Con 2019 Special

In the last episode, we talked our predictions for our upcoming trip to MCM Comic Con in Manchester. This week, we're diving into what happened at Manchester Central, who we met and what you lot could expect from attending in the future. Also, we have a grass update (which is what you're all tuning in for really), and the most stupid thing Vic's ever seen in a Cinema - EVER.

#17 'Bread & Grass' - You voted for more chat, we're sorry.



Anyhoo, you all voted yes to #TheVault switching things up and including a little more chat on the podcast, and by 'eck have we delivered...A LOAF OF BREAD. It's also story time on all things 'Moped C***', for those who asked to know the saga. 

We're also talking about #MCMManchester and the excitement that the event will bring, blimmin' woop. There's a slither of gaming in this one, but not as much as usual. You asked for it, you only have yourselves to blame.

Do you have any annoying stories you'd like to share regarding your area? How about your favourite type of bread? We'd love to know. Please do send us a lengthy and well-penned email to Alternatively, you can send us your grammar-free grievances over on twitter, @Vault_Unlocked. We love to hear from you, so please, we beg of you, talk to us.

#16 'There's Been A Murder...' - The 'Murdered: Soul Suspect' Special

#16 'There's Been A Murder...' - The 'Murdered: Soul Suspect' Special

We're back after a massive hiatus (soz about us, thanks for sticking around), and this week we're talking about Airtight Games's #MurderedSoulSuspect. As per, it's spoiler central once again, but we have left some things for you all to find yourselves. Also, the ending hasn't been unearthed, so you'll have to work out who the Bell Killer is with our Ronan. No, not Keating, O'Connor's the name and slaying demons is his game.

IMAGINE if it was Ronan Keating - BARE HILAR.

Anyhoo - please let us know what you thought of the game over on @Vault_Unlocked on Twitter, or you can email us at, to fill our dusty inbox.

#15 'What If?' - A Dev For A Day

In this week's episode, we're getting all hypothetical on you and pretending that we have the dreamy job of coming up with the concept for a brand-spankin' new game. Fun times all round - well, kind of, being as the subject matter can be serious within said plots - but hey, we're wanting to make you feel a myriad of emotions, so step off yeah?!

What would your ideal game be? Are you the star in your own masterpiece? Let us know by tweeting us at @Vault_Unlocked or pinging us a lovely little email at

#14 'I've Got A Problem, Mike...' - The Until Dawn Special

It's another long episode today as we dig Supermassive's 'Until Dawn' out of the vault, for a good, in-depth and slightly hap-hazard review. Obviously, it's a good opportunity for Vic to talk about imaginary husband #8774 and Oscar winner Rami Malek, and Jase to perform his #8774th eye roll.

We also have an unexpected guest on the podcast today, the ever popular Mr. Annoying Angle Grinder, apols about him hun x

#9 Playstation Classic - The Casual Review

The mini box of joy and confusion is a topic we're getting our laughing gear around in episode nine. A small disclaimer - Vic's got some very, ahem, strong opinions on 'Jumping Flash', if you're a fan, we'd suggest perhaps skipping this one. But just hit play anyway 'cause we're needy and like to know you're there.
