It’s our annual Hungover Hangover special! Join us for a special extended episode where we take your tweets, emails, and voice messages! Thank you for your support, and boy are you in for a doozy.
We bought two of Sony’s new PlayStations and boy, are our arms tired! We also played a Nintendo 2DS without buying one, then took a break from playing games to look at some in a museum. Finally, Burial at Sea is the BioShock Infinite DLC of the Year.
Between all the grinding, collecting, and microtransactions, it’s amazing we even had time to record this week’s show about the extremes we go to for some games. We’ve also got talk of Saints Row IV, Tiny Death Star, and (seriously?) more on Pokemon X/Y.
With next-gen consoles right around the corner, we’re laying the PS3 and Xbox 360 to rest this week with all of our favorite stuff from the current gen. Also: Pokemon X and Y (we actually played it!), AiRace Speed, and Nintendo’s Swapnote dong debacle.
We’re having a spooOOoOOOOoOoky time playing Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and deciding if we like this new direction horror games are headed. Also, we played Splinter Cell Blacklist with the community and lived to tell about it! So we tell you about it.
Writer/director Rob McCallum talks with us about his upcoming indie documentary, The NES Club.
It’s the Pokémon episode you’ve been waiting for, featuring three guys who have never played Pokémon! Also, dungeonmaster Randy rolls an elf in an RPG. D.J. plays a gritty first-person shooter. Matt tries a demo… OR DOES HE? WHAT’S HAPPENING??
What’s better than staring at a GTA Online error screen? How about hanging out with creepy, wooden versions of Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe? We dish on Beyond: Two Souls, are seriously confused about Flashback (More Bros Edition), try the new Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies demo, and check in with Randy’s JRPG Corner, featuring Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl.
We pay our respects to the late Hiroshi Yamauchi by looking back at the big N’s history and sharing some of our favorite Nintendo memories. In the Hangover: We like GTA5 when it doesn’t make us torture people, and D.J. learns to sew in Final Fantasy XIV.
Brace yourselves. It’s a full hour dedicated to the Grand Theft Auto V of video games: Grand Theft Auto V.
We stick the fork of mercy into the Summer Backlog Attack, because it’s time for us to stop playing old games and start stealing cars. We also stick multiple forks (with varying degrees of lethality) into Splinter Cell Blacklist, and Paul’s still playing Diablo III? Oh, it’s the new Diablo III for Consoles. Also, we’re super excited for Watch Dogs but maybe it’s just because the Internet is a big place and we get lonely.
In the Hangover, Randy’s playing Killzone: Mercenary, which is a first-person shooter you play on a handheld, D.J. is unusually restrained about Final Fantasy XIV, and Paul is already sick of Grand Theft Auto V.
We’ve got your Spelunky-flavored Viewer Mail, and we announce the grand prize winner of the Backlog Attack contest! Is it you?
Is there any good reason to pick up an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4 on release day? The truth is out there! This week, we’re playing The Fullbright Company’s Gone Home (no spoilers!), Spelunky, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Jet Set Radio, and weighing in on the next-gen console release dates.
RAGE! RAGE! RAGE! We’re letting off some steam over the things in games that make us mad. (Then we’re binge eating.) In the Hangover, we’re playing Splinter Cell Blacklist and Spec Ops: The Line. Also, your comments from Twitter on Viewer Mail, and the final weekly challenge in the Backlog Attack contest!
Are you a game collector or just a hoarder? This week, we’re talking about the nuances of video game collecting and how well we’ve been able to resist the allure of that shiny, new collector’s edition.
In the Hangover, we’re playing Steamworld Dig, Brothers: Two Sons of Mothers, Divekick, and D.J. rants a little about Shadows of the Damned‘s Big Boner.
We’ve also got highlights from the ongoing Backlog Attack contest, plus your Viewer Mail comments!
Oily men, oily, oily men! This week’s show is all about oily men (somehow). But then we talk about how Nintendo’s doing, so don’t worry.
The Backlog Attack is in full effect this week, as we play through Resident Evil: Revelations, Spec Ops: The Line and Shadows of the Damned
We dig into the controversy surrounding Vanillaware’s Dragon’s Crown this week. How often do a developer’s creative decisions (and possibly, their personalities) detract from your gaming experience?
We also make some progress in the Summer Backlog Attack: Randy gets into, Mindjack, the second on his list of triple-F titles, and D.J. explains why Analogue: A Hate Story maybe shouldn’t have been on his list in the first place. Meanwhile, Paul tries out the gravity-bending co-op of Ibb and Obb.
As always, we feature your comments from Twitter in Viewer Mail! And listen carefully as we announce a new, backlog-themed contest that you won’t want to miss!
