    EP 68: Check a Look! -or- What's the Online Gonna Be?

    EP 68: Check a Look! -or- What's the Online Gonna Be?

    This is the episode where we look at trailers. Trailers. Trailers. Trailers as I was gonna call it. But then I didn't. Xbox Series X presentation, Nintendo's Direct Mini, Ubisoft and, the best damned presentation on the planet: Devolver Digital. There's also more Last of Us 2 talk and Menji gives a bit of insidery news about the Midnight Ghost Hunt alpha test.

    Last of Us 2 Spoiler Time Stamp: 13:32 - 18:30

    EP 66: E-Faux -or- How Maverick Learned to Stop Worrying and Love E3

    It's E3 time which means normally the air would be palpable with hype and fresh trailers. Well, E3 is AWOL this year but the hype and trailers are in full effect. It's time to talk about the Playstation 5 reveal and the state of E3's future.

    EP 64 pt 1: 30-Day Video Game Music Challenge -or- The First 10 Days

    Despite the unrest of the world around us, we still want to be a place where people can escape to, for even a little while, and find some positivity which is what games are supposed to be for anyways. As such, we took this time to ponder over some things that make us truly happy: Video Game Music. After some lengthy discussion we delve into the first 10 days of the 30 music challenge. Well, technically we already delved into all 30 but the episode would've been just way too long.
