    Off The Deep End Episode 45: Ultima IX Ascension (Patreon Special)

    Off The Deep End Episode 45: Ultima IX Ascension (Patreon Special)

    Somehow... Jeff has returned. Braden and Chris force him back in front of a microphone to talk about Origin's infamous Ultima IX as a special bonus episode. The three Deep Endists cover such delightful topics as the game's troubled development history, its numerous gameplay problems, and disappointing story. Will they learn what a Paladin is? Does anyone still get that reference? No? I'm sorry. I've failed you all.

Just another Viking ,

Lovely show from lovely people

You know you can trust Gino as he's down on Super Mario Sunshine.

Content I want from people who are alright

I appreciate the sheer amount of content that I can sit through since I listen to a lot of podcasts, but the rotating co-hosts can be either fine or annoying to listen to depending on who it is. Slightly harshly worded, but I still like listening to most of them.

Gillbertbee ,

Games!

The analysis is super interesting and the hosts are hilarious! Definitely a worthwhile listen!
