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 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!
Episode 36: Horse Isle - The Secret Land of Horses
May 11th, 2014 | 36 mins 35 secs
Jenni from Video Games Taco joins us to answer the most pressing question of our time: "Is horses like cars but with meat?"
Episode 35: Samurai Ghost
April 27th, 2014 | 35 mins 37 secs
It’s strange but true, but customs that we attribute to a given locale often have shared roots. For example, did you know that seppuku and pumpkin carving come from the same, misguided place? Listen to the end to find out!
Episode 34: Harley's Humongous Adventure
April 13th, 2014 | 30 mins 5 secs
There are many ways in which a man can be small. Let's take stature as a given. There's also pettiness, deceit, closed-mindedness... All of these diminish us. What else diminishes us? Shrink rays of our own design.
Episode 33: Body Harvest
March 30th, 2014 | 28 mins 34 secs
In the long view, the Ninentdo 64 might be Abject Suffering, the system. In our initial estimate, the NES seemed like the most fertile and hateful ground... but the N64 is a remarkable moment in history where everyone's reach exceeded their grasp.
Episode 32: King of Dragons
March 16th, 2014 | 38 mins 3 secs
We're not proud, and we never said we weren't hypocrites. We also never promised to do things like "actually talk about the game we're supposed to talk about". That's your bad. You assumed that.
Episode 31: Episode 31: Ballz 3D
March 2nd, 2014 | 35 mins 57 secs
Squares. Circles. Tetrahedrons. The stately geodesic dome. Icosahedrons. Cubes. Hypercubes. Sentient cubes. BALLZ.
Episode 30: Cool World
February 16th, 2014 | 39 mins 57 secs
How does a person feel when they stare into the smoldering, waiting eyes of their creation? When it clambers for your attention... wanting love, wanting validation... wanthing to feel something, ANYTHING. That's how God feels about you ever day.
Episode 29: Yu-Gi-Oh!: Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel
February 2nd, 2014 | 44 mins 37 secs
Not everyone knows the creation myth for anime. One day in a peaceful village in Japan, a truck carrying a surplus of decimal places from the war overturned, spilling extra zeroes and permanently altering the population. What was once 20 was soon 20,000.
