    Fantastic Neighborhood 131 – The Convention Scene

    Fantastic Neighborhood 131 – The Convention Scene

    We want to podcast. We got them pods deep within us and we need to get them out. But we are going to temper our expectations and start slow. Maybe one, one and a half a month. Gotta ease back into it.

    This weeks months podcast has us recollecting some of our favorite parts of GDC and PAXEast, talking about the games we are playing right now, and Jon’s parenting skills.

    And as always, you can reach us at letters@fantasticneighborhood.com, or by calling 720.HOODIE.6 (720.466.3436). Follow Fred, Jon, & the show on Twitter, and like us on Facebook. If you’d prefer to get us on Tumblr, we are there. Subscribe and rate us on iTunes, and now on Google Play.

    Jon at GDC Day 1

    Jon at GDC Day 1

    Jon went to GDC. Jon. Anderson. GRRRR….

    In keeping with our storied tradition, he is reporting his day one wrap up of the games hes played and the things what he has seen with his special co-host and games journalist Tyler Treese (@tylertreese). Not me, the guy who he started podcasting with.

    The show image represent betrayal. That is all. Enjoy your podcast built on lies.

    Fantastic Neighborhood 130 – Surviving 2016

    Fantastic Neighborhood 130 – Surviving 2016

    It’s been a while. Truth be told we did record a different episode 130 before this one, but fate had other plans and wiped our recordings out. But we had to get together to discuss this year didn’t we? Yes we did.

    This episode we are also joined by young Alex O’Neil who helps us count down the least worst of 2016. Enjoy! Or don’t! 2016 really was kinda rough.

    Fantastic Neighborhood 129 – No Man’s Podcast

    Fantastic Neighborhood 129 – No Man’s Podcast

     

    Space. The final fro… SPACE! GONNA GO TO SPACE!

    In this episode Fred and Jon wax poetically about all the space games, the space movies, and being pandered to with 80’s nostalgia. They had space in the 80s!

    Jon also shamelessly plugs his new podcast, The Bro-C, the best and probably only The O.C. re-watch podcast on the earth. But not in space. If you are in space you should check it out though at www.thebro-c.com!

    Fantastic Neighborhood 128 – The Return

    Fantastic Neighborhood 128 – The Return

    Look, I’m not saying that there is a direct connection between us not recording new episodes and how horrible everything in the world has become, but you cannot deny the correlation.

    So just to make sure we are doing everything we can to bring joy to the rest of the world, WE’RE BACK! New games, new show format, same old hosts. Well, mostly the same. Jon wears tank tops now, and Fred is recording it an echoy room (Hes gonna fix that next episode. Promise.) but it still the same discussion and banter you love!

    So join us once again as we discuss some games and maybe some other stuff here on Fantastic Neighborhood!

Well Produced

Jon and Fred play off of each other conversationally that adds to the enjoyment of listening to the discussions on gaming. Definitely worthwhile to listen to and hope they continue to put out such engaging podcasts.

It’s all about games, games, games...

#Actually, it’s about ethics in games journalism.

I love that this show isn’t afraid to talk about some of the issues surrounding gaming culture. While they are two white dudes with differing opinions, they mostly treat each other with respect and seem to prioritize people over products. YAY!

Probably the best amateur video game podcast out there.

You guys, this is the Giant Bombcast of video game podcasts. That’s no hyperbole, this show is great. The two hosts, Jon, a designer of game and software distribution tools, and Fred, an ad-man, have great chemistry.
Every other week, Fred and Jon talk about what they’re playing, issues or trends in the industry, and game club. What is game club, you ask? Like a book club with games. The two hosts play a game, dissect it, and discuss its finer points.
On off weeks, they release a shorter, one topic affair called “Fantastic Neighborhood Gaiden.” Sometimes to argue, sometimes to recount the history of a favorite gaming trend, the off weeks are always interesting.
