Always a good time

An enjoyable roundtable discussion on an off the road retro game of the week without trying to go out of their way to be wacky and over the top like every other show tries to do.

a fun listen

i'm not a big podcast guy, but i enjoy this one. it's basically three middle aged guys talking about video games. none of them are hardcore geeks, none of them are extraordinarily knowledgeable; they come across as typical male gamers in their 30s-40s.

the earlier episodes began with a cool chiptune-flavored theme song; this has been replaced in the latest episodes with a terrible, incoherent punk song with lots of random game titles yelled out. a bit annoying to sit thru every episode.

the main host, jeremy p, presents the show like a young child doing his best impression of a radio DJ for his parents. a former video game store employee (he sure sounds like all the ones i've met), he has a chubby tongue and talks way too fast, causing him to frequently trip over his words. he also seems to take pride in being an ignoramus when it comes to video game history, and frequently mispronounces game titles and character names. still, he keeps the show moving at a brisk pace and maintains a cheerful demeanor.

jeremy g, also known as old man grumpus, is the second host and he does seem to know his onions when he chimes into the conversation. unfortunately, his tone is frequently sour and he usually has few positive things to say about the game being discussed. ultimately, his contribution to the show is inconsequential.

billy is the third host and does not appear on every episode. unlike the other hosts, his speaking manner is charming and easygoing. his southern drawl is peppered with self-deprecating humor and droll anecdotes from his past (indeed, he is the only of the three who is actually funny). his opinions are insightful and his judgment towards the game under discussion is usually spot on. his contribution is definitely the main draw of this podcast and is ultimately what makes it entertaining.

together, these three do a good job painting a picture of three typical American adult male gamers in a way that other podcasts and shows don't. i say it's worth a listen--just skip the episodes without billy.
