The Most Ridiculous Games Ever Made

February 11th, 2020

This week Paul takes us through some of the most absurd and bizarre games that were ever published. We invite you to sit back, relax and marvel at that fact that hard work and actual money went into making games that let you the player- be a slave to a boy band, fight crime with dance as a pop-star, fall down a toilet and dodge fecal matter to stay alive, play a clown that beats up baby penguins and so much more.

Ep. 56 - Ultima 7: how awesome is/was it?

December 24th, 2019

Ultima 7 is regarded by many as one of if not actually the best RPGs of all time. But is this just nostalgia speaking? What would it be like to play it today? Paul played a bit of it recently in preparation for the Richard Garriott interview, which he unfortunately missed, but it would be a shame to let that research go to waste. Find out what an Ultima 7 noob has to say to a veteran.

Ep. 43 - Shawn Mills (The Sierra Adventure) interview

September 22nd, 2019

Shawn Mills launched a Kickstarter campaign for his book, "The Sierra Adventure: The Story of Sierra On-Line" and it broke its goals before we could even get him on the show. For those of you who haven't ordered a copy yet, he joins us today to give us a glimpse of what to expect.

Also, our episode is a bit louder this week, and will continue at this volume moving forward. As it turns out, I learned that previous episodes were much quieter than the podcast standard.

Ep. 40 - Paul’s Magical Technicolored Dream Cast

August 20th, 2019

In what seems like a missed opportunity this episode is not about the Sega Dreamcast. However it is Paul's first attempt at hosting the show and he takes us through three topics in a desperate attempt to keep you entertained. Topics discussed are 1) The Sims: Ancestry Simulation Edition 2) What are we playing... mate? Reviewing the Blade Runner game and Resonance by Wadjet Eye. 3) Reader Question(s). We hope you enjoy!

Ep. 36 - Which Game World Would We Live In?

July 23rd, 2019

Only our Patreons will know the utter failure of an episode that took place before this one did. In this episode we actually talk about stuff, but we clearly didn't spend more than 5 minutes thinking before hitting the Record button...

Water Cooler 2: Battle Royale

July 21st, 2019

Ric and Paul decide to stay relevant by discussing Battle Royale. We assume that when everybody says "Battle Royale" these days they're referring to the awesome movie from 2000? Well of course they are. What else would they be referring to?
