BONUS: Best of the First 100 Games!

January 2, 2019

We've got another surprise bonus episode for you guys! Since we just played our 100th game for the show, we thought it might be fun to go back and acknowledge some of the best and worst of the show so far. We debate over which games had the best graphics, music, and multiplayer, as well as the bad games we secretly love, the weirdest games in the library so far, and many more categories!

December 29, 2018

Another day, another game with baffling cover art we need our audience to interpret. This week, we played FORSAKEN 64, and since we had no idea what it was about, we asked our beloved audience to send in their imagined plot descriptions, and man did they deliver, with some of the smartest and funniest plots we've heard yet. We're joined by the hilarious Tyler Detrick, who helps us parse out just what FORSAKEN is about.

Tis the season for blasting Cacodemons and wielding double chainsaws! This week, we played DOOM 64, the N64 exclusive port of one of the most influential and successful games of all time. We delve into the fascinating history of id Software, explore the controversy that surrounded the title at every turn, and desperately try to see what the hell is going on. Happy holidays, everyone!

December 15, 2018

Prepare to crack your virtual bullwhips and don’t forget your fedora, because this week we’re swinging into action with everyone’s favorite archeologist/ adventurer with INDIANA JONES AND THE INFERNAL MACHINE. Indy’s first foray into 3-D was bafflingly a Blockbuster exclusive on home consoles; did the poor distribution give Indy’s game a raw deal, or does it deserve to be lost in a warehouse? Find out now!

Monopoly (with Katie Bray and Danielle Rupinski)

December 1, 2018

This week, we're joined by Danielle Rupinski (owner of the Rook and Rogue board game pub) and Katie Bray (all around awesome person) to discuss the N64 adaptation of MONOPOLY, the world's most famous board game. Join us as we dig into the sordid history of the game, it's evolution from a socialist teaching tool to a capitalist fever dream, and it's reputation as a destroyer of families.

All-Star Baseball 99 - 2001 (with Josiah Coolidge and Dan Reese)

November 24, 2018

We're trying something a little different this week! Since baseball is inherently kind of boring to talk about, and since we've already covered it once before, this week Steve and Woody provide running commentary as Josiah Coolidge and Dan Reese play ALL-STAR BASEBALL live in the studio! Expect thrilling action, rambling non-sequitors, inappropriate references to 9/11, and lots of cheesy announcer voices!

November 17, 2018

And the theme song is stuck in your head.... now. This week, we played the candy-coated platform YOSHI'S STORY, a game that, for all it's saccharine cuteness, is pretty divisive among gamers. We're joined by our old friend Lynsey, and by Kyle Duncan Graham, host of the Infinite Grenade Launcher podcast. Special thanks to Kevin Kim for the recording on Kyle's end.
