De-FUN the Police! (Ep 409)

De-FUN the Police! (Ep 409)

January 11, 2022

We talk about perhaps the most acceptable(?) form of police misconduct that we've heard about. Konami find new and exciting ways to whore out their popular IP's for as many cynical Schrute-bucks as they can gather. Carrie has Walked to the End of Final Fantasy XIV, and Take-Two "Micah's" their way to mobile gaming dominance.

The Fighting Game of Life (Ep 408)

The Fighting Game of Life (Ep 408)

January 6, 2022

Holy hell we have NFT news to sort through this week, so we're definitely doing that. Brad also is a proud Xbox owner now so he and Micah talk the unbridled fun that is Halo Infinite multiplayer and why Forza Horizon 5 not being a great racing game really isn't a problem. Brad has been hooked on some unexpected Switch game in Unsighted and One Step from Eden. Ubisoft is reaping what they sowed, and Riot is back in the news with some good news for the suit brought against them.

That‘s a Real Nice Lack of Bargaining Power Ya Got There (Ep 407)

December 14, 2021

Activision Blizzard employees seem on the cusp of the first big unionization effort in the games industry. You'll never guess what Activision corporate is trying to do in response! We have impressions of Loop Hero, Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon, The Matrix Awakens, and Halo Infinite. We also talk about the Game Awards being relatively lackluster, and Brad walks Micah through what is probably going to be the craziest F1 season ending you'll ever see, and who's to blame?

Ode to Sleeping Dogs (Ep 406)

Ode to Sleeping Dogs (Ep 406)

December 7, 2021

Final Fantasy XIV might have the best community in the video game universe. Activision can't stop collecting bad press with layoffs at Raven Software. A now-former Sony executive got to star in a low budget version of a Chris Hansen show, and we wax poetic over one of the greatest games of its day.

Most Ambitious Failure (Ep 405)

November 30, 2021

Terrence is back after a slow news week that sees us talking about Mortal Shell, Darkest Dungeon, Hades, Days Gone, and Spider-Man in Marvel's Avengers. Mass Effect is going to become an Amazon show, and we're scared. Is Cyberpunk 2077 on a No Man's Sky-esque redemption arc? And we vote for The Game Awards live on the show!

The Pies that Divide Us (Ep 404)

November 23, 2021

We of course dig deep into the Bobby Kotick story, why you should never trust a rich, white CEO, and how Activision's defense of him will cost them in the long run. We have a bevy of game impersonations including for the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, Shin Megami Tensai V, Halo Infinite, Ruined King, the Steamworld series, and Outriders.

Pokemon Simp (Ep 403)

Pokemon Simp (Ep 403)

November 9, 2021

The future of monetization in games looks pretty bleak as the biggest publishers voice their support of the NFT bandwagon. We discuss why this is likely to be a historically bad idea. Devolver Digital is now publicly traded; how could this change their goals? We also give our take on the Shin Megami Tensei V kerfuffle, and how could WWE get it so wrong with Keith Lee?

None of You Have an Excuse! (Ep 402)

None of You Have an Excuse! (Ep 402)

November 2, 2021

No one has any reason to miss one of the best under-the-radar games of two console generations ago! Bobby Kotick makes a meaningless gesture to appease the Activision board while finally making at least one meaningful reform. Nintendo finally nails Bowser but it might be a lean Switch Christmas. We also talk about our most embarrassing gaming moments and what games had our opinions fluctuating as well played them.

Characters Are What You Remember (Ep 401)

October 26, 2021

We discuss why the Uncharted movie misses the point, how Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy benefitted from low expectations, why Fortnite had to die so that other Apple developers may prosper, the Switch Premium Online rocky start, and why overcoming fear is overrated.

Episode 400!

Episode 400!

October 18, 2021

It may be our 400th episode, but it's business as usual for us, and for Ubisoft apparently as Micah shamelessly purchased and played FarCry 6. We also talk Back 4 Blood and put a bow on Metroid Dread. Carrie patiently explains to the olds on the pod what the hell an NFT is, Brad rages about Nintendo's greed, and Sony says "bet" to a company looking to step to them in the world of unlicensed accessories.
