This is a podcast that delves deep into some of the most popular, and lesser known video games of the past. Play along with three completely unqualified gamers as we explore the nuances of a different title each month. More than just another review, this is an analysis of the development process, level design, story, game-play mechanics, legacy and more. Join us as we break down a game from inception to completion as well as its impact on the industry as a whole.
We are Daniel, Nate, and Jay; and we are here to ask you a question.
Is a man not entitled to listen to our podcast?
"No!" says the man in Washington, "I'm pretty sure at least one of them is a socialist."
"No!" says the man in the Vatican, "They are an affront to God."
"No!" says the man in Moscow, "They poke fun at King Putin."
We reject those answers; instead, we chose something different.
We chose the impossible. We chose...Command Center.
A podcast where the gamer would not fear the censor.
Where the conversation would not be bound by petty morality.
Where the boys would not be constrained by deadlines and episode release schedules.
And with the click of your mouse, Command Center can become your podcast as well.
Now, would you kindly be sure to like, rate, and subscribe?
Roller Coaster Tycoon 2
Have you ever wondered what would happen if a roller coaster "malfunctioned" and sent a load of people flying off the end of a track at mach 2? Have you ever wanted to take all those whiney, problematic people in your life and drown them in a lake? Have you ever wondered what V-sync could do to enhance those nights you spend alone? Well wonder no more, we cover all these topics and more in this months episode as we revisit a game from our childhoods. Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 was a staple in my CD-ROM tray back when I was a youngin' and looking at it with fresh 30-something eyes was painful at times, but definitely worth the ride. And after all is said and done, stay tuned to find out what game we'll be playing for next months episode so you can play along and join in on the discussion!
Return of the Obra Dinn
After a holiday hiatus the boys are back! We took a little time off because of some real world events and of course the holidays, sorry for not giving a heads up ahead of time but, as they say, shit happens. Hopefully you guys played Return of the Obra Dinn like you were supposed to because we are finally going to talk about it. Along with all the other games we got into during the break including Rimworld, Read Dead Redemption 2, Jedi: Fallen Order, and more. And don't forget to listen till the end to get the skinny on what our next game will be, it's the first game we are playing by request and we're pretty excited about it!
Yes this episode is quite late. No, we are not very sorry, chalk it up to just another 2020 woe. Good news is the world hasn't ended...yet. We aren't dealing with radioactive fallout, there aren't roving gangs of thugs, and most importantly we don't live in Arizona. Yes, that's right we played Wasteland 2 over the last month and have some hot takes on the importance of antacids and discourse on the finer points of Snake Squeezin'. Don't ask, just listen.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
If you've got a thing for men in tights, deep baritone voices, hanging ominously from gargoyles, and capes, then I know of a great club down the street that yo-......wait, no, I know of a great game that you would love! BATMAN! Arkham Asylum was our homework for last month and some of us even went above and beyond to play some of the other games in the series as well. Tune in to find out what the boys thought of this 2009 Game of the Year and to learn how we managed to tie Woody the Woodpecker into an episode about Batman. It's easier than you might imagine. Plus get the skinny on what next months episode will be about!
Halo: Combat Evolved
It's time to go back to a modern classic! Admittedly not quite a hidden gem, but with the Master Chief collection FINALLY being patched to the point of playable, the boys just couldn't resist. We'll see if this re-skin of a beloved game will be up to snuff for famously fickle gamers. Spoiler alert: Cortana is looking THICC, Sergeant Johnson was a named character in the game, and the three of us have no future in our budding choir careers.
We're also super excited about the title we will be covering next month so listen through to the end so you can play along with us!
So far I have only listened to your KSP episode and I was really impressed with how articulate and entertaining you guys were. I’m now a new subscriber.
My favorite gaming podcast! It’s like a book club but with video games
These guys are absolutely hilarious; unlike many gaming podcasts out there, the hosts actually have chemistry with one another. I feel like I’m sitting there having a conversation with them. The format is well structured and they seem to be picking the right games. Keep up the good work!
Recommended, even if you haven’t played these games
So far I haven’t played any of these games but I like hearing these guys talk about them.
