    A Bad Port of DOOM is Better Than No Port of DOOM - DOOM 6: Phobos Lab

    Andy, Sam, and Aaron (or is it Scorpion?) take on Phobos Lab, the fifth level in DOOM (1993)!

    In this episode:

    A bunch of stupid horseshit! A discussion of the naming of the levels! Finding secrets and new power ups! John Romero's next game! Dr. Grant is Doomguy! Yes from Jurassic Park!

    Also, we discuss DOOM for the Super Nintendo! The highs and the lows!

    And does Yoshi have some...problematic views?

    All this and more in a pixelated episode of One Stage at a Time!

    The Lara-Su Chronicles Traumatizes Us - Sonic GG 14

    The Lara-Su Chronicles Traumatizes Us - Sonic GG 14

    Seriously. Do NOT search for the Lara-Su Chronicles.

    We are joined by Ed Tirado and Jared Vandergriff as we take on Scrap Brain Zone, Act II, in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Game Gear!

    It's an interesting stage, but maybe not good?

    Also, we discuss Robotnik and his relationship with the woodland creatures and the Overlanders! Also, woodland creatures are apparently excellent at warfare and murdering people.

    We discuss Sonic comic books, including the ongoing Ken Penders drama. Do you know what an echyd'nya is? And do you know what the Lara-Su Chronicles are? If you don't, you're one of the lucky ones.

    All this AND MORE in this unfortunate episode of One Stage at a Time!

    Dead Doomguys Everywhere - DOOM 5: Command Control

    Dead Doomguys Everywhere - DOOM 5: Command Control

    Your comrades bodies litter the floor and you're tearing through hordes of imps and demons!

    Joined by Sam Ingersoll once again, we take on E1:M4, Command Control, in DOOM (1993)! We discuss this interesting level and the man who designed it, Tom Hall, a man ahead of his time!

    We learn the secrets and discuss new items found within the level, such as the hazmat suit! We are confused then in love with how DOOM teaches us how to play without teaching us!

    We also wonder what in the hell happened with streaming and Doctor Disrespect a few weeks ago.

    Andy suggests that if you're not playing on at least "Hurt Me Plenty," then you have no business playing DOOM.

    And, finally! Uh...is that a swastika?

    All this AND MORE in this reich-eous episode of One Stage at a Time!

    Scrap Brain Zone Sucks Compared to the Genesis Version - Sonic GG 13

    Scrap Brain Zone Sucks Compared to the Genesis Version - Sonic GG 13

    Ed returns to take on Scrap Brains Zone: Act 1 in Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Game Gear!

    In this episode, Aaron gets cancelled! Like, immediately.

    We discuss the odd name that is Scrap Brain. Aaron forgets what system we're playing on! We compare the Game Gear version to the Genesis version and how it kind of sucks when put side by side.

    Also, Aaron continues his one-sided beef with The Gaming Historian and we talk about ALL the Sonic games for the Game Gear and Genesis.

    All this AND MORE in a visually gross episode of One Stage at a Time!

    Wave After Wave of Enemies - DOOM 4: Military Base

    Wave After Wave of Enemies - DOOM 4: Military Base

    Make them feel the bite of your sword! Joined by special guest Sam Ingersoll, we take on Military Base, E1M9, the first secret level in DOOM (1993)!

    We talk level design, challenges, pentagrams, and platforming in the game!

    We speculate on demonic factions at war with one another!

    We talk about gibbing once more and interesting ways to take on demons with a chainsaw!

    We also talk about Team Fortress 2 and the racist robots currently infesting the game.

    And finally, we discuss John Romero & John Carmack, 2 of the creators of DOOM! And their tres chic hairstyles.

    All this AND MORE on a secretive episode of One Stage at a Time!

    Sonic Can't Kill Eggman - Sonic GG 12

    Clashing with Robotnik at the end of Labyrinth Zone! Yes, we're playing Sonic the Hedgehog for the Sega Game Gear, Labyrinth Zone, Act III!



    We discuss the epic(?) battle and the differences between this version and the Master System version! We also explore other versions of the good doctor, including the Sonic '06 version of Robotnik and Eggman Nega!



    And is Robotnik more powerful than anyone truly suspects? Is it even possible for Sonic to defeat Robotnik?



    All this and more in a villainous episode of One Stage at a Time!

lionduh ,

Interesting!

Really cool podcast about video games and history factoids! Didn’t know a lot of the stuff that they talk about. Pretty cool!

WIILLdaBEAST ,

They are worth your time!!

That Andy is one handsome man. I don’t know Aaron personally, I’ll just assume the same.

Seriously though, definitely worth a listen.

🍄🐢

It never fails to astound me when people are able to spend 30 minutes talking about a 2 minute work, be it a song, a movie scene, or a level from a video game.
