    The Last of Us is the Second to Last of Us (For Season 1 at Least!)

    The Last of Us is the Second to Last of Us (For Season 1 at Least!)

    We're so close to the end of the Retro Gamers '100 Games to Play Before You Die' list we can almost taste it!
    This episode we're discussing the penultimate game in the list, which is 2013's The Last of Us (26).
    Perhaps more cinematic experience than fully fledged game, Jay and Eddie discuss Naughty Dog's zombie-esque magnum opus... and they've actually both played it for a change!
    Sooo... tape up a few shivs, throw some nails in an old tin can, pour yourself a glass of vodka then stuff a rag in the neck of the bottle, and most importantly sit back, relax and enjoy the Second to Last of Us in Season 1!

    Are We Still Stalling? You'd Bethesda Believe It... Please Don't Fallout with Us!

    Are We Still Stalling? You'd Bethesda Believe It... Please Don't Fallout with Us!

    That's right, much like a long-past-it's-best sitcom or gaming franchise, we're dragging out Series 1 of the Bucket List Gamers Podcast just a little bit longer while we work on the final two episodes!
    So this time we're hoping to get a little bit of that Fallout TV Show rub by talking about Bethesda games, and the show itself!
    We also discuss the importance of Indiana Jones's whip, why Argonians are the master race and the future of the podcast itself!
    Enjoy!

    We've said it before and we'll say it again... we don't really recommend you purchase anything from www.geekcrate.co.uk.
    Jay received 2 Pokemon crates that really weren't worth what they are asking for them, so from our personal experience we just can't in good conscience tell you to go and buy one too.
    BUT, one of our Patrons did purchase the Star Wars one, and that ended up being pretty decent so it seems like a mixed bag.
    If you REALLY are hell bent on buying one though, use our code 'BLG' at checkout for 15% off, and it'll help us out too!

    It's Time for a Recap! (Yes, We're Stalling...)

    It's Time for a Recap! (Yes, We're Stalling...)

    That's right, for our 51st (NOT 50th!) episode we're taking a look back through the list and discussing all the games that we have covered so far.
    We promise that we DO have a good reason for stalling, and it will hopefully make the penultimate list episode far better than it would have been if we had rushed it out.
    Will that penultimate episode be next week? We wouldn't count on it... but for now you can listen to us talking about stuff we've already talked about.
    It's not as bad as it sounds, honest! I mean it's not a clips show, right?
    Enjoy!

    Two Middle Aged Men Review a Game for Toddlers... and Turrican 2!

    Two Middle Aged Men Review a Game for Toddlers... and Turrican 2!

    This Episode Jay and Eddie are talking about a game they probably should have covered off as part of a previous episode; Turrican 2 (81) from 1991.
    The game that would eventually become a licensed Universal Soldier tie in, Turrican 2 takes side scrolling difficulty to a whole new level... and not in a good way!
    But Turrican takes a backseat in this episode, as the boys turn their attention to the gaming behemoth that is... Bluey!
    Why have two grown men played a game designed for toddlers? How could they possibly spend over 40 minutes reviewing it? Should they have put this kind of effort into reviewing the other games on the list?
    All good questions, perhaps you'll find the answers by listening in!
    Enjoy!

    Hey! Listen! Is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time the Best Game Ever?

    Hey! Listen! Is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time the Best Game Ever?

    Well, according to Retro Gamer Magazine, no.
    That's right, this episode we're looking at The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (2) and for the first time in a while we've found a game we can be truly positive about!
    Don't worry though rant-fans, we still find time to have a little moan about a few things along the way!
    So whip out your Ocarina, pour a nice cool glass of Lon Lon Milk and settle in for over an hour of nostalgic guff!
