Gonna be honest here. Was never a fan of the Pat the NES Punk videos. That being said I stumbled upon this podcast a few weeks ago and gotta say it is pretty fantastic. I highly enjoy the fact that both Ian and Pat are passionate about what they do and are giving honest reviews and up to date news. One thing I’ve noticed as I’ve gone backwards through the ol catalogue is Ian always sounds like he’s exhausted and 1-2 steps away from losing it. ( I don’t mean this in a negative way) The poor guy just sounds like he’s tired of the shenanigans... We’ll Ian in those tough moments of life might I recommend a trip to rancho relaxo with the champagne of beers..a miller higher life.
