It’s time to gather round your console and join the finest gaming community in all the land. If you are looking for equal parts random life story and absurd video game analysis, then join hosts Eric, Dan, and Tom every few weeks for a light-hearted, tangent-filled romp through gaming history.
Sidequests - Ep. 16 - 2022 Game of the Year Show
It's time for our favorite show of the year! Find out which games secured our top spots and try to resist to the urge to buy some of the recommendations... because we each failed to do so.
Retro – Ep. 232 - Doom 3
Hold on to your brown trousers! It's a four man show for the first time in ages as we play Doom 3, bask in the glory of 90s internet...and regret the dark path that takes us down.
Sidequests - Ep. 15 - The Scorn Disappointment, Plague Tale is Back, and the Hope for Better Games
Just when we thought this year couldn't get any worse, we played Scorn. Fortunately Plague Tale: Requiem and the anticipation of upcoming games give us hope that the year might round out with a bang.
Retro – Ep. 231 - Lost Planet
Armed with the finest of TENG, we land on the cold plains of EDN-3 and find that exploring Lost Planet is just a big waste of time.
Retro – Ep. 230 - MoCon 2022 and Brutal Legend
It's time for the annual pilgrimage to MoCon! Will the lads have the same hotel room? Will they survive? Will Zack be arrested? It's all possible at MoCon! Outside of this year's shenanigans, we also have a brutal time trying to slog through Brutal Legend.
Sidequests - Ep. 14 - Moving Sucks, Heroes of Britain, and What Games We Think Won't Be Crap
The horse may have died long before it got to Eric, but that won't stop us flogging it even further as we return after a two month hiatus! Hear all about Eric's cross-country move, the heroes of Britain, what we've been playing (or not playing!), and our thoughts on all of the latest big announcements including Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, Starfield, and more.
Almost 5 Stars!
i would put a 5 star review but whoever keeps typing away on the keyboard in the background kinda distracts from the conversation. my only nitpick
A wholehearted pip pip
Ignore the reviews from the mouth breathers who want to hear another run of the mill gaming show where two dweebs give a clinical breakdown of a game. There’s many podcasts like that but what sets some apart are the personalities of the hosts, which is what brings me back to factory sealed. Their gaming knowledge is second to none and I like the longer form episodes because I’m often listening to them at work, and let me tell you it’s a major upgrade from the wastes of oxygen I work with. Unfortunate Mike isn’t on the show anymore but the content is still great. Keep it up guys.
I’d hang out with these guys
I’ve been listening for over a year now. This podcast is full of wonderfully random chaos. As a gamer and a game collector I love the insight and passion shown to each game. Thank you for all that you do and keep it going!
