    BONUS: What Remains of Edith Finch with Scott Burger

    We're joined once again by one of our top-tier Patreon supporters to bring you a special bonus episode! Scott Burger returns to discuss WHAT REMAINS OF EDITH FINCH, a beautiful and unique game from Giant Sparrow that attempts to tackle issues you rarely see explored in video games. This is a game about death, family, trauma, healing, and mental illness, and it covers a lot of ground in it's scant two hour run time. Plus, Scott and Woody talk about their experience growing up on the game's setting, Orca's Island!

    Bayonetta / Bayonetta 2

    Bayonetta / Bayonetta 2

    It's time to strap some guns to your feet and get real sexy, because this week we're playing the wildly over-the-top action epic BAYONETTA series! From the creators of DEVIL MAY CRY, BAYONETTA features a hypersexual heroine, a gleefully nonsensical plot, and some of the best action gameplay around. Thanks to a nice bonus disc included in the Wii U-exclusive BAYONETTA 2, we're playing both games in the series so far, grappling with some of the themes of the series and discussing Nintendo's bizarre decision to adopt Bayonetta as one of their own.

    BONUS: Kirby Super Star (with CJ Baker)

    We're back once again for the first in our last batch of Patreon-funded bonus episodes! Our Wonder Red-tier Patreon supporter CJ Baker returns to discuss his entry into the Kirby series, the exceptional SNES game KIRBY SUPER STAR! This 1996 classic packs a ridiculous amount of value into it's simple cart, demonstrating the pink puffball's elasticity in more ways than one! We're breaking down all 8 substantial modes on this game, from an abridged remake of the original Game Boy KIRBY to an ambitious Metroidvania-style adventure. Plus, Woody's favorite party game! 

    A very special thanks to CJ for his support over the years! The Wonder Red tier has been discontinued, but there are still dozens of episodes of bonus content at Patreon.com/ultra64pod, now a flat $5 a month!

    Ben 10: Omniverse / Ben 10: Omniverse 2 / Monster High: 13 Wishes / Monster High: New Ghoul in School

    We've got a quadruple-dose of cartoon-based games this week, and like those sexist Happy Meal two-packs, we've got options for boys and options for girls, although really the best option might be neither. First, we're playing two games based on the Cartoon Network action series BEN 10 OMNIVERSE, about a young boy who can transform into 10 different alien warriors. Then, we're enrolling in MONSTER HIGH, two games based on the hit fashion doll-turned-multimedia franchise, starring a clique of fashion-forward monster girls.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    The XENOBLADE series has been kicking around in some form or another since the late 90s, but it's only recently that it has ascended to a Nintendo-blessed blockbuster franchise. This week, we're playing the Wii U-exclusive entry in the series, XENOBLADE CHRONICLES X, which takes on more of a spacefaring sci-fi aesthetic with faster combat and big honkin' mechs to drive around. We're digging deep into the origins of the series, and seeing how this one compares to the rest of the highly-acclaimed RPG series.

    Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge

    Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge

    Sharpen your blades and join us as we play what may be the goriest game on the entire system! NINJA GAIDEN is one of the rare series to innovate the action genre in two completely different eras, on the NES and on the original Xbox, but Ryu Hayabusa's star has dimmed a bit in recent years. Today, we're playing his one and only entry on the Wii U, a remastered and expanded version of NINJA GAIDEN 3 called RAZOR'S EDGE! While NG3 was considered a disappointment, RAZOR'S EDGE tries to reverse the game's fortunes with refined controls, new touch screen abilities, and lots of cost-of-living improvements.
