John de Lancie joins us this week to chat about his favorite games like Dishonored, Tales from the Borderlands, Volume, and updates us on his Backlog. Also: Randy sounds like Bob Ross having sex to Jazz music, whilst eating Fig Newtons. Wat.
Paul and Randy are stuck in Fallout Shelter while D.J. tap dances on somebody’s face in Final Fantasy XIV‘s Frontlines. Also: Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Mark of the Ninja, Dead Rising 3, and Super Mario Maker.
The gang discusses the best reasons out of Gamescom to get an Xbox One, none of which are Mafia 3. D.J. wonders what would happen if Perfect Dark and Halo fought each other. Paul binges on episodes of Galak-Z. Randy spells seven words.
The whole gang is back together so it’s time to talk about every video game: South Park: The Stick of Truth, Gravity Rush, Rocket League, You Must Build a Boat, LEGO Batman 3, etc. Plus more Guacamelee racism, and D.J. discovers what happens when they put Battlefield into Final Fantasy.
D.J. is joined by a mystery guest host who talks him through the Eorzean job crisis in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. The same mystery host, who is definitely not Paul because he’s finished The Last of Us, plays Guacamelee wonders why Canadians are so racist towards Mexicans, maybe.
Damage Dealing Wizard Character can utilize the following abilities:

Upon reaching level 30, Damage Dealing Wizard Character can be promoted to Damage Dealing Sage.
On this week’s show, we play game music. Beat the summer heat with icy cooldown songs, exit music for games, and the raddest opening stages of the 90s.
A message from Video Game Hangover about Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo.
In the final act of Video Game Hangover: The Garbage Trilogy, everyone’s favorite crimefighter, the Batmobile, returns to shoot more missiles at spaceships. We discuss the first two episodes of The Wolf Among Us, and Her Story Is A Good Game You Should Play It.
In case you were worried, we, too, have opinions on the Batmobile. Meanwhile, Xenosaga turns D.J. into a biblical scholar, or maybe he’s just telling people that because it sounds cool.
DESTINY MEGA-SHOW!!!! (Just kidding, please don’t leave.) On our 200 millionth episode, backlog celebrity Al Parker joins us to uncover our true feelings about loot. We also get into Magicka (the old one), Dragon Age (the new one), and some cheap beer.
It’s E3 time again and we’re here with our impressions of all the latest Es!
We ask the Crystal Ball of Gaming (totally real) to grant us our E3 wishes, like a release date for The Last Guardian (no), a new F-ZERO (no) or for Geoff Keighley to experience human emotion (no). Instead of playing that other game, D.J. builds a boat.
We hear about an unexplored side of Splatoon from our resident kid and squid, Randy. D.J. alternates between angsty Pacific Northwest teen and angsty Tokyo teen assassin. Paul refuses to set foot in a casino, but maybe a Witcher slot machine would change his mind.
After years of anticipation, we finally discuss the international smash hit: Puzzle & Dragons. Paul plays a game about a beard albino. D.J. doesn’t play anything. Also, Backlog Attack 2015 looms.
How did you fill the time in your days/nights/weekends before The Witcher III came out?
On this week’s show, Paul and Randy are distracting themselves with Invisible Inc., Klei’s fun-but-stressful new tactical espionage thing. We also dig into a couple of 3DS eShop oddities, Stretchmo and Adventure Bar Story, and Randy finally delivers his promised update from his Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth playthrough.
We also ruminate on our lifelong struggles to balance gaming with being a productive member of society. It’s harder than it may look from the outside.
When is a squid not a squid? When it’s a human-squid girl/boy hybrid. But what if this hypothetical hybrid hu-squid were to transform suddenly into a full squid? A definitive answer eludes squidymologists to this day. Anyway, we played Splatoon.
We regret to inform our listeners that D.J. Ross fell in battle during the great Burrito Wars of Cinco de Mayo 2015. Never forget.
Randy and Paul somehow find the strength to carry on, however, and this week they weigh in on big Suicide Squad news, PC gaming’s big night at E3, and the big new scheme to get gamers off of their big fat asses.
The guys also drown their sorrows in games, including Cities: Skylines, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, and Never Alone.
Silent Hills is canceled and Konami is in the middle of self-destructing and we’re just sitting here StreetPassing.
Randy plugs in his Xbox One to make sure it plays video games, but alas, all it does is play the new Star Trek trailer (which looks suspiciously like Star Wars). Meanwhile, Paul locks himself in a room and D.J. jumps off a cliff to avoid being bled on by Superman.
