    Captain Skyhawk

    Captain Skyhawk

    Soar where no podcast has gone before!
    No one noticed when they launched. And now it might be too late to stop them! In remote corners of the globe, Genesis Gem invaders are draining Earth's energy and "feeding" it to their space station. When the power drain is complete, the Genesis Gems plan to vaporize 2 Dudes and a NES with a deadly laser blast.

    You, dear listener, are Captain Skyhawk - the only person who can stop them!

    Climb aboard your hi-tech F-14VTS jet - fully equipped with the latest in deadly weapons! A unique spy satellite viewer lets you see your entire plane as you battle the Genesis Gems forces over amazing gridscape graphics! Whether you're soaring over the mountains at Mach 3 with Justin, or floating in hover mode with Michael, your F-14VTS will measure up to any challenge!

    When you run out of firepower, just rocket up to your space station and Michael's Wifey will load you up with Phoenix missiles, Hawk bombs, and more!

    The final challenge is still to come! You must destroy the dreaded Genesis Gems podcast. Fire up your afterburners, Brother! It's time to fry some Gems!

    Pirates!

    Pirates!

    Ahoy, you swarthy gold swiping, ship sinking sea dog!
    Modern warfare is no match for the fierce realism of Steven Michael and Aaron. Aye, matey! That's why plundering and pillaging are back in style, as you command the role of a high seas high-jacker. Either an English Buccaneer (Michael), Dutch Adventurer (Justin), Spanish Renegade (Aaron), or French Explorer (Steven Michael), each with a different skill level and strategic impact.

    As a swashbuckling Bit Brother, you'll barter with Aaron, trade for hidden treasure maps, negotiate with an unscrupulous Steven Michael and forge alliances with Justin who'd just as soon stab you in the back than float you a loan for new ships. But that's only half the battle! You'll also assault other game systems (Sega Genesis), sword fight with Michael, lay siege to CRT TVs, and fire your cannons broadside at an armada of rival podcasts.

    Arrrg, me swabby! Don't think it's all fun and destruction. Because if your bloodthirsty crew isn't kept happy boarding and burning enemy vessels, or if your navigation skills leave them shipwrecked on a jagged Caribbean reef, they won't think twice about using you for shark bait. Fortunately, if events do take a nasty turn, you can save the statistical loot you've captured and return with a vengeance on another day.

    So keep your eye (the one that doesn't have a patch over it!) on your ultimate objectives - power, fame, prestige, gold, land, and the hand of a beautiful maiden - and you'll find the sailing smooth and your "red beard" scraggly!

    Catchup with Steven Michael from Facebook

    Catchup with Steven Michael from Facebook

    Psych! You thought this was going to be the Pirates! episode didn't you? Well, we did too. Unfortunately, most everyone couldn't make it on this episode. However, Steven and Michael had already sat down so they figured it might as well serve as a chance to catchup and talk games and life anyway.

    Look forward to several topics including: PS5, wild birds, therapy sessions about obsessing over side quests in games, $GME, and and a lot more!

    Yoshi's Cookie

    Yoshi's Cookie

    Michael and Justin are filling in at the Cookie Factory, and they need your help! Fresh baked cookies roll out of the ovens. It's up to Michael to sort and stack 'em before they pile too high!

    Line up a row of the same kind of cookies either vertically or horizontally, and they vanish! Clear the screen to move on to a new level of cookie chaos. Matt Raithel of Graphite Labs appears from time to time to stir things up. Play for high score, or head-to-head against a fellow Bit Brother. The mouth-watering madness doesn't let up!

    And be sure to keep some cookies close by, 'cause you'll get the munchies during this lip-smacking good time!

    Wall Street Kid

    Wall Street Kid

    Where life, love and money all depend on how well you play the game.

    Justin can make billions of dollars when he deals with the giants of Wall Street, the Bit Brothers community. Not only does Justin take risks by playing the stock market and buying up GameStop stonk, but he must prove that he can uphold a high standard of living.

    Michael dreams of fame and fortune and this Life Simulation game is his way to the top. He can taste the victory of success, but only if he is strong enough to face the challenge of life, and buys up all the GameStop stonk.

    Now, are you ready to deal? YOLO, buy some tendies.
