Episode 140 – The One With Gambit and the Marstons
PAX Melbourne is almost upon us, and as such we’ve been kicked about the ear, nose and throat with scheduling and prep insanity. BUT! We have hand-woven this basket of astisinal madness for you: an extra-long, extra-chunky episode of 28 Plays Later in which we discuss (among other things) Gambit’s explosive powers, excess pins, child fermentation and testicle physics. Come with us, why don’t you, on this journey of gaming mayhem?
Episode 139 – The One With Paul Jaywalking
Money talks, and Paul walks — directly into traffic in this call-in podcast about how to make our PAX Australia show a truly special one. Problem-solve along with us as we strut and fret about our hour upon the stage.
Episode 138 – The One With Actual Nicolas Cage
Because you demanded it, Paul shares an excerpt from his interview of Nicolas Cage for the movie Mandy — plus, Destiny 2: Forsaken, and what makes an actual hero, besides murdering thousands of henchmen and for some reason sparing the head villain for courts to deal with? Also: John Wick takes aim at more insidious evils in our exclusive prequel!
Episode 137 – The One About Spider-Man (PS4)
Paul and Kris swing through the delightfully friendly neighborhood Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, and Kris bares his secret Destiny 2: Forsaken shame.
Episode 136 – The One With Freaky Friday
In this horrifying episode, Paul calls Kris just as he’s passing through an atmospheric disturbance, and they begin to switch bodies. Will they be able to prepare one another in time? What hijinks will ensue? Will said hijinks be strictly legal? All hail the blood moon! All hail C’Nth’fth’gn, high inquisitor of the glorious bi-millennial phase shift of K’norr!
Episode 135 – The One With Azeroth, England and No! Man’s Sky!
There’s SO MUCH in this crammed episode! Here’s a rundown for you:
* Paul’s new book, Loose Units, is available NOW! We chat about the rigors of churning out a book, especially one as gritty and challenging as this one. For our overseas listeners, you can – and should – pick a copy up on Amazon, or in all good bookstores!
* We talk with Darren P. Williams, Senior Software and gameplay engineerand Dusty Nolting, Lead Character Artiston World of Warcraft! Battle for Azeroth, the new expansion, hits today and we asked them the hard hitting (read: stupid) questions!
* We delve into what makes We Happy Few such a great antidote to the Ayn Randian nonsense that hung around Bioshock’s neck (seriously, We Happy Few is great. Check it out.)
* We talk Kris’ innante urge to cheat on the super No Man’s Sky: Next! Gasp as Paul takes him to task! Shudder as Kris kind of straight up admits he has a problem! Will he get the help he needs?

Kris and Paul are funny boys. They make me laugh every episode, very good. Highly worth putting in your ears and in your brain.
It's pretty good.
A wonderful mix of genuine insight into games and entertaining tangential nonsense.
