Episode 193: Pre 3 2019

We stand on the precipice of E to the Three. The portcullis has opened; the City of Angels beckons. Who will join our scouting party to see what the land of electronic entertainment holds?

One eager adventurer stands up: Dylan Ilvento; another: Nelson Johnson; a third: Joe Wetmore.

Lastly, a wanderer, long traveled, ready to leave this heady life of Virginian video games and head to the City That Never Sleeps –  we welcome Ruthie Edwards into the fold for one final quest.

Games include Old School Runescape and Mario Kart Tour.

Episode 192: Tsundere Jay

In a week of fact checks, we find out what we know and what we don’t know about ourselves, each other, and – most importantly – Sergeant Slaughter’s acting credits.

We go on a quest for the latest Oculus hardware, run through some Void Bastards, get spoilery on Undertale, and repeat the words “Shinobi Prosthetic.”

Games include Overwatch, Undertale, Deltarune: Chapter 1, Brawl Stars, Void Bastards, Sunset Overdrive, Hades, AFK Heroes, Marvel Strike Force, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Layers of Fear, Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series – Episode 1, Blade and Sorcery, Baldur’s Gate, Mordhau, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Episode 190: Understory; Cave Tale

We reconvene to discuss fighting games of all shapes and sizes as well as the looming spectre of loot boxes’ nefarious ends.

Epic Games marches across the gaming landscape, swallowing as many exclusives and studios as they can. Is this good for devs? Is this bad for consumers? All we can say for certain is it’s a weird time for games, with the console wars seemingly subsiding only to reemerge on PC.

Games include Pop’n Music 14 FEVER!, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mortal Kombat 11, Injustice 2, Hypnospace Outlaw, Undertale, Artifact, Brawl Stars, Sunset Overdrive, and Alice: Madness Returns.
