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.

    January 23rd, 2023  |  35 mins 57 secs

    Nobody knows why, but people in the 90s thought if golf video games had comedians in them, maybe that would connect with the kids?

  • 487: Tootinis

    January 9th, 2023  |  35 mins 51 secs

    Tootinis is a game that feels like a student project that ended up getting a little money behind it. Very little money, mind you. So we're fully in "Please Be Cool" mode because all these people did was make a weird kids' game with baffling characters and a very funny intro.
