Jeff Gerstmann brings his extreme knowledge of video games, the video game industry, and energy drinks to you each and every week.
009: Contacting Customer Support
Jeff Gerstmann doesn't have his Atari Hotels shirt and this, friends, simply will not stand. Your votes determined the live outcome of this three-month merch fiasco. Also we're talking Grand Theft Auto VI, Trackmania servers, the future of Mortal Kombat, and... do you think Sony will raise the price of the PlayStation 5? No, right? R... right?
BONUS: Game Boyz II Men 00 - The Intro!
Jeff Gerstmann and Glenn Rubenstein have been in and around the game industry since the early 1990s. And now, for the first time, they'll get into that history. Here, in the intro episode, we set up how Glenn got his start writing for a newspaper in the first place and the disturbingly bad video game that nearly derailed this friendship before it ever got started!
Future episodes of Game Boyz II Men will appear exclusively on Patreon for folks at the Co-Conspirator tier or higher!
008: BYO Minecraft
Xbox gets a Discord integration, Ubisoft gets to cancel a few games, and somehow virtual reality just got more expensive? What? Also your final word on Stray along with some hot talk on MultiVersus, Ex-Zodiac, Live A Live, and more! This podcast is a podcast!
007: Ill Mannered Playas
It's been so long since John Riccitiello has come up on a podcast that I practically forgot how to spell his name! But here we are, and now I remember exactly where all the I's go. Let's talk about Unity and Escape Academy and Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium and Warframe... and Soulframe??? Also: Bay Area Hip-Hop and Ganbare Neo Poke-Kun, the perfect match!
Episode 006: The Emptiest SteelBook™
E3 is back on the menu as ReedPop steps in to help run the show, Jeff Gerstmann offers his thoughts on the Exoprimal beta, the Klonoa reissue, and the sheer audacity of shipping a God of War Ragnarok collector's edition version of a game that comes with a SteelBook case but doesn't actually come with a game disc to put in it.
Episode 005: Kreayshawn Defense Force
Jeff reviews the Steam Deck, digs into some Last Call BBS, talks up DNF Duel, and gets into the news, including that Skate 4 trailer, the new Atari compilation, Zero Wing coming to the Switch, and that stupid blockchain console that's been making the rounds. Also Asher Roth is discussed? Are we going to have to start a hip-hop podcast around here?
Desperate Red Bull Machine
Finally, 100% Gerstmann, nobody adulterating him but himself.
