By listening to this episode you will learn: how to select the appropriate robot dog for any situation; operating procedures for the Belus-07 railway vehicle in case of apocalypse; how to get through the first hour of Dragon Quest VII in only three hours
We’re participating in the Extra Life 2016 gaming marathon for charity! On Saturday, November 5th, we’ll be raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network of hospitals by playing games for 24 hours straight. We hope you’ll tune into our livestream, cheer us on, and pledge your support for our team by donating a few dollars toward our fundraising goal. Any amount is appreciated! You can contribute here:
Kitchen thievery in Overcooked, naked ninjas being shot out of cannons in Ninja Launcher, and Adam Jensen’s sunglasses. One of those things is not like the other… but to find out you’ll need to listen to this week’s episode! Also: Randy is still (not) dead (hopefully) and we flashback to Flashback: The Quest for Identity.
D.J. risks prison time playing AM2R, the Metroid II fan remake. Without Randy around, the conversation quickly devolves into Final Fantasy and Star Trek, but it’s mostly because Paul played Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander. Mostly.
Paul and D.J. report in from the first ever PAX West. Hear about Dragon Quest Builders, The Silver Case, World of Final Fantasy, PAX Game Show Night, and more!
D.J. returns to the Deep Dungeon to find a new way to play Final Fantasy XIV, then rolls a healer in popular Internet meme, Overwatch, because maybe there’s more to gaming than killing people. Meanwhile, Randy kills people with zillions of grenades in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided yeahhhh siicckkkkk
Randy continues his new life of intergalactic trading in No Man’s Sky. D.J. watches people play every arcade game at once, then tries to come to terms with the final Final Fantasy. Paul explains how kitchens work.
No Man’s Sky is out so we can definitively answer everyone’s remaining questions, like: Are there really 600 trillion planets, or did they just copy/paste the same 3 over and over? How do I shot gun? And which multiplayer mode is best? D.J. goes swimming.
Randy pops heads off (and back on again) in the 70s sci-fi-vania, Headlander. Paul is still playing only Monster Hunter. And D.J. would have finished Last Window by now if protagonist Kyle Hyde could drag himself out of bed at a reasonable hour.
D.J. emerges from Final Fantasy XIV‘s deep dungeon to talk about its new Deep Dungeon mode. Paul navigates Batman through some jankiness. Randy has questions about Persona 4‘s take on hot social issues. Also: The final round of the Backlog Attack begins!
In this audio series of dramatic podcasting you’ll find: an in-depth conversation about the new Nintendo NX, an emotionally charged soliloquy about Monster Hunter, some internal dialogue about Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and even some comments about Ghostbusters!
Pokemon Go? Check. Monster Hunter Generations? Check. Final Fantasy XIV? Check. Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel? Check. Yep, sounds like another show from your friends at Video Game Hangover. Also—this should be good—Randy plays Bloodborne.
We look up from our Pokedexes just long enough to avoid being hit by oncoming traffic and also to discuss the Pokemon Go phenomenon. Also, did we play Resident Evil 7?
As seasoned video gamers, we know a little about what makes a cool game. We strive to talk about only the coolest games every week. Like Boxboxboy. That’s cool. Inside? (That’s a game.) Also cool. Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard? Sorry. That’s not a cool game.
The blips and bloops are back! We take a listen to some of our favorite game music mariachi covers, Groove Coaster remixes, and songs appearing in games that rhyme with “Unsmarted: Jake’s Fmortune.”
This year, at E3: Tom Clancy’s robot dog! Norman Reedus’s weird body! Games about war! Games about burritos! Typography! JRPGs that look like Mass Effect! And the Pacific Northwest, but everywhere!
We continue our month-long deep analysis of the infamous Uncharted 4 scene where Nate eats his own brother. D.J. is still stuck in a Final Fantasy XIII hellworld. And the Backlog Attack returns!!
Randy returns to describe Uncharted 4 with the very highest of adjectives, while D.J. is much less favorable on Final Fantasy XIII. Somewhere in between, Paul enslaves a mushroom race.
