Join us as we answer 2017’s most burning questions: What is it like owning a dragon-cat-dog-bird-thing? How not-terrible is Watch Dogs 2? Is Paul stuck in an Animal Crossing time loop? What’s your social security number? Also, D.J. attends a stage play.
We reflect back on the games of 2016: the ones we loved, the ones we were only mildly enthused about, and the ones that made is stare blankly at our phones while we wandered into traffic.
D.J. and Paul listen to how one classic Final Fantasy song has evolved over the series’ 30-year history.
**SPOILER ALERT** On this special mini episode, Paul is joined by his wife Courtney and they chat about their co-op play through of Batman: The Telltale Series. Spoilers abound!
Good riddance, 2016! We cap off the year with a mailbag full of your questions and a round or two or three or four of our beverages of choice. Who will get eaten this time??
Put on your headphones and join us as we listen to the greatest video game music from this terrible year.
Paul embarks on the anime road trip of a lifetime. D.J. takes a (short!) break from rebuilding Alefgard to hang out with a robot buddy. Randy tries to figure out why everyone’s dead.
Randy finds his new ninja lifestyle oddly unsatisfying. Paul is trapped in the PlayStation 1 zombie wasteland of his dreams. D.J. is also trapped, but in an annoying space pod. Also Dragon Quest Builders Dragon Quest Builders Dragon Quest Builders.
We survived Extra Life last week and then started playing even MORE games so we could chat about those GAMES this week. Games like Alphabet, Nium, and Letter Quest Remastered. Also this week: dogs and survival games.
Have some semi-coherent rambling after staying up too late playing video games. And then… our Extra Life live show, ha ha!!
Paul attempts to drag Randy and D.J. into the depths of the Civilization VI rabbit hole. D.J. is tricked into playing a video game by a spooky grandma. Randy learns about how the people of Norway benefit from sustainable energy.
Paul replaces homes with slightly nicer homes. Randy learns what to do about a soggy toad. D.J. decides to loiter in a vacant virtual house where the Target employees can’t find him. And Nintendo introduces the Slapchop.
Randy tries to determine if Paper Mario: Color Splash is finally the game that justifies the Wii U’s, well… Wii U-ness. D.J. descends into Thumper‘s spooky rhythm dimension. And yes, Dragon Quest VII.
We get a glimpse of Paul’s nascent Dragon Quest Builders addiction as he recounts his time with the demo. Meanwhile, D.J. makes the responsible decision to only play games for 15 minutes at a time, and, doing the opposite, Randy plays Picross 3D.
Paul and Randy revisit New Deus Ex‘s grim future where cybernetic superhumans can’t stop breaking into their neighbors’ homes to steal their snacks and drinks. Also, we play Virginia: The Official Game of the U.S. State, and Dragon Quest VII is.
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!
