About the Show
This is a podcast that's nominally about bad games. In reality, it's about the horror of daily life, GameFAQs Gold, strange combatants in the battle of Good vs. Evil, and a singular patriarch known only as Crick. Every Monday, Gary Butterfield and Kole Ross choose a game at random from the titles submitted by listeners, play it, and venture off on a freeform discussion that winds between the topic at hand, and the absurd.

Episode 49: Darkwing Duck
August 10th, 2014 | 29 mins 27 secs
Script Treatment: Duck Generations. EXT. -- DAY: Donald, Scrooge, Darkwing, and Jason Alexander waddle into a liquor store, shades perched precariously on their bill. Each squawks incomprehensibly, as if trying to out-fury each other.
Episode 48: Toys
August 4th, 2014 | 28 mins 34 secs
Hey Robin Williams: You cool, dawg? Can't quite settle on a single voice there. We're on to your "spaghetti against the wall" garbage. Black preacher? So played, and kind of racist. Nobody actually remembers when you were any good at anything.
Episode 47: Dudes With Attitude
July 28th, 2014 | 33 mins 2 secs
We were walking the perimeter of the Crick estate, shoring up the tree line and clearing brush. Michael kicked aside some beer cans, and chuckled quietly to himself. "What's so funny?" I asked, wiping my brow to keep the sweat bees at bay.
Episode 46: Master Chu and Drunkard Hu
July 21st, 2014 | 25 mins 54 secs
Mark another tally up on the "Canonical Worst Games" wall. Odds are good we're going to clear this pantheon out. One day a hard rain is gonna come, suffering style.

Wherein we consistently miss the easiest target.
Episode 44: Legacy of the Wizard

Episode 43: Godzilla
June 29th, 2014 | 25 mins 55 secs
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound he pulls the spitting high tension wires down. Helpless people on a subway train scream, bug-eyed as he looks in on them.
Episode 42: Shadowrun
June 22nd, 2014 | 28 mins 37 secs
Mediocrity is the most mortal sin of all. So we'll kindly excuse ourselves out the side door.
Episode 41: Cho Aniki
June 15th, 2014 | 30 mins 20 secs
This might be the third rail, but I'll bend over and take it. Spray your disapproval all over me if you must, but I believe, to the very last drop of my being, that we need more positivity in this world. If it has to come in the form of Cho Aniki, in its
Episode 40: Strider
June 8th, 2014 | 29 mins 38 secs
Like thieves in the night, we assassinate a game that is misguidedly referred to as a "classic" by some poor souls who don't know any better.
Episode 39: A Week of Garfield
June 1st, 2014 | 31 mins 38 secs
Being on a weekly format, we've had to cut some corners. Syndication is tough, so in order to keep our quality consistent (if mediocre), we've farmed the creation of these shows out to a network of corporate subsidiaries.
Episode 38: Felix the Cat
May 25th, 2014 | 26 mins 16 secs
Come with us to a time before sound, when dancing cats were no longer condemned as signs of witchcraft, even though they carried bags of tricks. To a time where Kole, unstuck in time, actually liked Felix the Cat at a young age.
Episode 37: Superman 64
May 18th, 2014 | 31 mins 2 secs
Faster than a frightened cockroach. More powerful than my aversion to the sun. Able to disappoint your parents in a single loan. It's Superman 64!
