This is a podcast that's nominally about bad games. In reality, it's about the horror of daily life, GameFAQs Gold, strange combatants in the battle of Good vs. Evil, and a singular patriarch known only as Crick. Every Monday, Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross choose a game at random from the titles submitted by listeners, play it, and venture off on a freeform discussion that winds between the topic at hand, and the absurd.

    466: Dragonfable

    466: Dragonfable

    Dragonfable is the long-forgotten followup to Adventure Quest, and somehow it still runs, and somehow you can still play it. Cribbing heavily from the hyper self-aware diction of webcomics in the mid-2000s, this is a repetitive, grindy RPG that's perfectly at home on this show.

    465: The Adventures of Gilligan's Island

    465: The Adventures of Gilligan's Island

    Gilligan's Island is a hell named after its devil. The incompetent first mate of the S.S. Minnow bumbles about with an efficiency that cannot be accidental, ensuring that the island's flawed inhabitants will never again see another shore. Gilligan's Island is also a corny 60s television show which, for some reason, got an NES game made of it in 1990. It contains multitudes.

    464: Galerians: Ash

    464: Galerians: Ash

    Galerians for the PlayStation is a flawed but interesting survival horror game, existing today primarily for people who are passionate about that era of the genre. Galerians: Ash is beloved by none. Picking up right at the end of the original game, Ash follows the continuing adventures of Rion through the world of Basically Akira, trying to stop synthetic humans from destroying the world. But they made it an action game and they shouldn't have done that.

    463: Feel the Magic: XY XX

    463: Feel the Magic: XY XX

    Will Hughes joins Kole once again to talk about the DS launch game "Feel the Magic: XY XX", which is best described as "horny Warioware". We end up talking about the game quite a bit, though Will does frequently bully Kole the whole time. There's nothing to be done about it.
    Special Guest: Will Hughes.

    462: Zoop

    462: Zoop

    Gary went and caught Covid, so this week Kole is joined by the AV Club's Will Hughes to talk about Zoop, the shallow puzzle game that magazines in the 90s put a lot of effort into getting people to buy. And since Gary isn't here, we kind of go hog wild on talking about things that would otherwise send him into the stratosphere.

    Covid Plans and Apology

    Covid Plans and Apology

    Hey everyone! Announcement time. Gary caught Covid-19 and circumstances conspired to make it so we can't have a show this week. To give him time to recover, we're skipping this week, and I (Kole) will be hosting the next two episodes of the show with special guest Will Hughes, Gary's friend.


    We hate missing episodes of the show, and we really try not to make a habit of it. We apologize for not having new content for you this week, and we thank you for whatever patience you can extend our way.

That cameo felt as long as March 2020

Put on these gloves. Sorry they're wet.

Gary and Kole sometimes discuss games of varying quality and spin off into amusing tangents unless the game is secretly good. Mostly, the games are bad and the banter is great.
