CORE 241: The Future Is Made of Gamers
What happens when more and more in political power use gaming and streaming as a tool to reach voters? We discuss how this works and how it might work in the future. Also, Warcraft is really good right now for Scott and Jon. The Solitaire Conspiracy still suits us. Hades still owns our souls. Emails about EA and star wars and way more!
CORE 240: Ball of Duty
Wow Prepatch has us interested again. Modern Warfare lets you shrink it a little. Spider-Man gets a cat. Monster Hunter gets a movie. Animal Crossing is a Among Us game it turns out. Scott plays Final Fantasy 14. Hades still a threat. A mashup and more!
CORE 239: Talk Into My Ear
What is Luna and do you want it? Or are there already too many gaming streaming services. Steve enters Smash and some are not happy about it. Sony does a hardware breakdown of the PS5. Nvidia cards are WAY back ordered now. Baldur's Gate 3 is in EA. Scott played and really liked Neir Automata. Shocking we know. Hades, Forgone and The Solitaire Conspiracy get a look too. Hades especially. Squadrons is...ok we think. Great emails and more!
CORE 238: Open Your World
What even is crunch in gaming and what can be done about it? Also early Series X impressions are in, and they are good! Among Us dumps sequel and goes back to the first game. A bunch Metal Gears make their way to GoG. Peter Parker looks different on PS5. Scott talks about his effort to scratch the right open world itch he has right now. Shadow of War, Watch Dogs 2, and Just Cause 4 on deck. Jon rightly loves Hades, but not Super Mario All-Stars 3D. Spelunky 2 is pretty great though. Beau finished Banner Saga 2 and is ready for 3! Our /paid on Steam and more!
CORE 237: Baby Sleeping Place
HUGE week of discussion. Let's start with Mike Morheim announcing today that Dreamhaven is his new games company, with sub studios, Secret Door and Moonshot. All of what that means and could mean. Plus, preordering PS5's and Xboxs is harder than you thought. Also GTX3080's for that matter. A big discussion about the Xbox plan, and how their HUGE acquisition of Zenimax/Bethesda could impact things. 7.5 BILLION dollars is a lot of dollars. No Man's Sky goes further than we thought. Shadow of War. Art of Rally. Avengers goes on hold. Disgaea PC. The Banner Saga. And your emails and more!
CORE 236: Throbbing Logos
Sony took the virtual stage today, and we have price and dates for PS5. Also a look at Final Fantasy 16, Mile Morales, The Plus Collection, and Ragnorok, a God of War sequel. Mad Max, Wasteland 3, Luigi's Mansion, streaming some cooking and guitar playing, and The Beau Zone Layer!

I’ve been a fool.
As someone who listens to various audiobooks and podcasts for the majority of my work day I have done myself a serious disservice by not checking out this pod sooner. I’ve listened to the Instance and a lot of other blizzard and Warcraft podcasts for years. I’m a huge nerd, that’s right I said it and stand by that. This show is everything a gamer would ever want to listen to. It covers multiple platforms, genres, pop culture and other Hoopla. This podcast is incredible. The chemistry between the three is really a joy to listen to. Thank you so much guys for the amazing content and will continue to like, listen, and subscribe. Gamers rejoice this is your podcast.
Love all you Guys do
Guys I love everything frog pants, very long time listener, but the Scott yelling at things he’s scared out sound board button, please lose it, it’s grating annoying and not in the least funny, please ditch its use across all the frog pants shows.
Great. Podcast when they talk about games.
Want a podcast hosted by 3 woolens who know nothing about politics l, but will spend 1/3 of the episode talking about radical left politicians who are fighting for open borders sanctuary cities and taking away guns? Then this podcast is for you. People who prop up the left and put down the right with no knowledge of politics but will slam it down your throat. If you are also a main stream media shill who takes msm as fact then you will probably like this country ruining circle jerk too.
