Ep. 53 - EcoQuest: because why not?

Our cyberpunk series was not a hit, so we decided to double-down on a game nobody's invested in. This is a game. And this is an episode about that game.

Ep. 51 - Neofeud: beautifully flawed

November 2019 continues, and so does our cyberpunk theme. This week we explore Neofeud, and discuss how a crude and unpolished game comes together to be greater than the sum of its parts.

Ep. 50 - Blade Runner (the adventure game)

It is November 2019, which means that Blade Runner is now a present-day documentary! Back in the late 90s, people regarded the PC game adaptation as the last great point and click adventure game. Today, we know that's not true, but why did people think that? We discuss that!

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

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

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. 39 - Which Game Endings Would We Change?

Paul is back! But alas, with each new re-beginning, there is a not-really-ending. Cryptic? Well hey, speaking of endings, Ric and Paul discuss which game endings they most want to change!

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

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

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?
