8 guys with 8 very different opinions team up every week to discuss games in a specific topic - what are the top three games featuring a character with a moustache? What RPGs did we play last month? We also pick one game each month to take a closer look and explore from beginning to end! Come for the bizarre intro theme, stay for the trivia.
45: Dead By Daylight
The Beat of the Month crew continue to celebrate October by taking a spin through a recent horror game phenomenon - Dead By Daylight. Maybe not so much a deep dive as a shallow wading, but we took a few 'stabs' at this online multiplayer horror game to see why it has garnered so much attention. Do we fully understand all the ins and outs this game had to offer? Hmmm....not really. But we played enough to share our initial impressions. We also include some 'live' audio clips of us in the middle of a few matches. Whether you are a seasoned killer or just trying to survive to see the light of day, there's something here for everyone to enjoy - including as always some 'Dead' trivia. So find a dark corner, put your headphones on, and join us!
44: Top 3 Zombie Games
We continue our coverage of Zombie games with a look at our top 3 zombie games of all time! Of course some Resident Evil games are bound to make the list, but which ones may surprise you...or maybe they won't (spoiler: Resident Evil 2 and 4 are really good). We cover the heavy hitters as well as some lesser known Zombie games. As usual we cap things off with Zombie trivia. How many weapons from Zombies Ate My Neighbors can you remember? More than us? Take a listen and find out!
43: Zombie Games
October is here and the Beat of the Month crew is celebrating by playing some Zombie games! We look at some classic remakes with Resident Evil 1 and 3, zombie mode in Call of Duty, a more story based zombie game with Telltale Game's Walking Dead - and more! We also touch on some newer games like Resident Evil 8 and (while not a zombie game) the brand new Deathloop. As usual the crew has a large variety of games to talk about, so even if scary games aren't your thing we've got you covered. So sit back, protect your brain, and join us!
42: Super Metroid
The Beat of the Month crew continue their journey through space as they try to eradicate the Space Pirate menace. Heralded as one of the best games of all time, join us as we share our thoughts on Super Metroid. Is it a perfect game...well we're not all sure about that. But it's certainly worth your attention. So join us as we anticipate the release of Metroid Dread and take a trip with Samus on one of her most famous adventures!
41: NES Metroid
With Metroid Dread approaching, the Beat of the Month crew decide to take a look at where the series all began. We dust off our NES controllers (OK not really...we played on Switch) and take a journey through Samus' first expedition to foil the space pirates' plans. We talk about the good, the bad, and the Ridley as well as how revolutionary this early NES game was and the impact it still has. We also cap things off with some Metroid series trivia that really tests the crew's (Mother) Brain.
Next week we go further in our journey with a deep dive on Super Metroid - so please join us now and in one week as we prepare for the imminent arrival of Metroid Dread!
40: Top 3 Open World Games
It's a big, open world out there with lots of games to be played. But sometimes, a decision has to be made. The Beat of the Month crew run down their Favorite Top 3 Open World Games of all time (with a few cheaters adding in honorable mentions). Where do your favorite Open World Games fit within our list? We also round out the episode with some Open World trivia. Think you can guess the names of these games with only 3 words. Yeah you probably can, we could - but you won't know for SURE until you give it a listen!
Takes me back
These guys remind me of my buddies from back home... Not so young, kinda dumb, and I swear I hear a cat. You can’t help but laugh and reminisce.
Great Fun Listen
I really enjoy their personalities
Funny and Informative
They get better with each episode! Keep it up.
