Ready your peanuts and Crack Jacks, because we're going out to the old ball game to revisit the glory days of Seattle sports hero Ken Griffey, Jr. Certified Mariners fan Josiah Coolidge stops by to help the non-sportos get a grasp on the finer points of the game, discuss what it was like to be a fan during the height of Griffey-mania, and play through a couple of surprisingly great baseball games.

Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt / Rugrats in Paris: The Movie (With Lynsey Pennington)

May 20, 2018

This week, we're doing our best to preserve our fond Nicktoon memories in the face of games so bad, they make us envy Melville the bug (look it up). Lynsey Pennington joins us once again to discuss the history of Klasky Csupo's classic cartoon, fumble through the rules of a maddeningly opaque board game, and question why the hell Rugrats in Paris takes place in Paris at all.

Fighting Force 64

April 29, 2018

This week, we're taking it to the streets for the quaintly antiquated brawler FIGHTING FORCE 64! We delve into the history of beat-em-ups, discuss the STREETS OF RAGE sequel that could have been, and prove that winners actually do sometimes use drugs as Steve struggles to podcast behind some substantial painkillers.

Star Wars: Episode 1 - Racer (With Jessica Cartwright and Nicole Vettese)

April 22, 2018

You voted, and we obliged! For our 25th episode, we played STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 - RACER, perhaps the only redeemable thing to emerge from the monstrous disappointment that was PHANTOM MENACE. We're joined by U64 favorites Jessica Cartwright and Nicole Vettese, who help us discuss movie scenes that would benefit from the RACER treatment, speculate about the cumbersome title, and help determine whether kamizake racing is actually a valid strategy.

RAMPAGE Extravaganza! (With Dan Reese)

April 15, 2018

As a classic gaming podcast, we get so few chances to be on the cutting edge of anything, so when the opportunity arises, you know we've gotta jump on it. This week, we played two versions of the arcade classic RAMPAGE (World Tour and Universal Tour), and then, in a bit of a break in format, we take a group trip to the movies to see, and review, the new Dwayne Johnson blockbuster "Rampage!" How does this big-budget tentpole compare to the languid thrills of the original? Tune in to find out! 

Also, we're very excited to announce the winner of our listener contest! You voted, so for our 25th episode, we will be playing: STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 RACER! Thanks to everyone who participated!
