    Ep. 38 Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain (1996)

    The realm of Nosgoth has been invaded by the dark forces of the Daydreamcast! Bro couldn't make it (of course I know him, he is me) but Murph and Calvin team up to discuss E3's legacy, the new shows that have filled in to replace it, and then they follow up by talking about Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. A game with a unique tie to E3 and a very curious developer background, nothing is a more fitting way to spend this episode than to go to a random shackled person on the wall and drain their life force!

    Ep. 37 Bioshock 2 (2010)

    We go deep sea diving in this new episode of the Daydreamcast! Teaming up with Youtube star AesirAesthetics, Murph and Bro tackle all sorts of topics like game development, Spiritfarer,Pac-man, and our game of the week: Bioshock 2! Is a man not entitled to the sweat of this podcast? And sweat we do, Bioshock 2 is a special title that both refines the gameplay and makes a more personal story out of the more allegorical effort of the original title.
    Oh, and we talk about the State of Play. Yipee.

    Ep. 36: War of the Monsters (2003)

    Kaiju and content creators clash! The only podcast that's a complete knockout! Our normal hosts (Bro and Murph) take their corners and Stephen joins the fray! Stephen is our kaiju expert, ranking monsters with his buddy Calvin on another cast. We talk about a collection of indie games, such as Spelunky 2, Norco, Citizen Sleeper, Say No! More, and Spellcaster University. Murph goes into his Yakuza minute, which will expand into many minutes as his franchise ambitions unfold. Then our Kaiju Minute explores how they reflect in different games, and maybe in some unexpected ways. Then we all clash with our game of the week. Murph is sentimental about it, but can modern sensibilities make this towering giant come crashing down? Only one way to find out!
    Huge thanks to Jack Davenport and Ryanparius, Jack has done our intro and Ryan has done our variety minute segue.

    Episode 35: Harvest Moon (1997)

    Well dear listeners, we've decided to settle things down and go a little more relaxed and quiet this episode. Murph and Bro discuss some indie games they've played, Murph particularly discusses The Stanley Parable Ultra Deluxe, and then he explores the first entry in his new retrospective: Yakuza. While less crazy and refined than its successors, it still delivers a solid foundation for a franchise. Then, we discuss farming in video games. All two of them (just kidding). After all is said and done, we play the SNES title Harvest Moon and discuss the ins and outs of turnip farming.

    Ep. 34 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team (2005)

    Gotta Catch 'em All! Only, we aren't catching them all. Instead, we're rescuing some after like fifty flights of stairs. Join Bro, Murph, and David from the Twin Geeks show as we dissect the rogue-like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: DX. Before that, we talk about the new Kirby game, and whether it sucks or blows. Then, we put a cap on Resident Evil as a franchise and Murph announces his next game franchise exploration. For the Variety Minute, we go for the ambitious topic of Pokemon spin-offs. Wish us luck!

    Ep. 33: World of Goo (2008)

    Talk about a sticky situation! This episode of the Daydreamcast Bro and Murph explore the icky sticky ooey gooey wiiware title World of Goo! We also talk about Resident Evil 3's remake, Elden Ring (again), and we analyze how goo functions in video games. Gooigi will reveal the truthigi. Murph then gushes about World of Goo's 10/10 aesthetic and mechanics. This goo structure builder and physics simulator made a huge splash in indie games, but how does it play today?
