BONUS: Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (with Elliot Jay O‘Neill and Danny Rosewell)

September 22, 2021

Rock on! We've got a new bonus episode courtesy of our top-tier Patreon supporters! 

Elliot Jay O'Neill is back, along with first-timer Danny Rosewell, to talk about GUITAR HERO III: LEGENDS OF ROCK, the biggest and maybe the best of the storied GUITAR HERO franchise and one of Woody's favorite games ever! We're looking back at the heyday of the 2000s, when every home had an array of chunky plastic guitar controllers and all was right with the world.

Wipeout 3 / Wipeout: Create & Crash (with Delaney Saul)

September 18, 2021

Who's got big balls? WIPEOUT does, apparently! This week, we're playing two games based on the summer game show sensation, and we're tagging in our friend Delaney Saul to help us manage the madness! We played WIPEOUT 3, which attempts to capture the obstacle course goofiness of the show in a simple platformer, and WIPEOUT: CREATE & CRASH, which lets you customize your own courses!

Star Fox Zero / Star Fox Guard

September 11, 2021

Hop in your Arwing and join us as we take on Fox McCloud and company's big Wii U adventures, STAR FOX ZERO and STAR FOX GUARD! The former is STAR FOX as you remember it, with lots of aerial combat and barrel-rolling action, but upgraded with beautiful graphics and some new vehicles to cause carnage with. GUARD takes the series into untested territory with an odd tower-defense style game! 

If you want to hear more STAR FOX, be sure to check out patreon.com/ultra64pod, where we're doing a complete deep dive on the series!

September 4, 2021

We're covering a ton of ground this week; we're discussing nothing less than the biggest game of all time, and we've rarely been more out of our depth! MINECRAFT is a sensation unlike anything else in gaming history, but our intrepid hosts have almost no experience with the block-busting blockbuster, so we've tagged in an actual 9-year-old to help us get our bearings. Plus, we're looking at the Telltale Games adventure MINECRAFT: STORY MODE, a star-studded interactive movie set in the MINECRAFT universe! It's gonna be a fun one, y'all!

Sniper Elite V2

Sniper Elite V2

August 21, 2021

We're taking aim at sniper games this time around with the cult favorite SNIPER ELITE V2, the game that finally lets you shoot Adolf Hitler in the junk. We take a look at sniping as a genre, look at the surprising success of the subgenre, and question whether realistic bullet physics are fun or just cool in theory.
