Episode Ten

Current State of the Video Game Industry

In the second of two episodes we recorded while Pat was in town, we take a look at the current state of the video game industry, out who we achievement stalk, ponder what the true definition of a AAA video game is, discover the origin of Lara Croft’s bust size, go down a rabbit hole of video game sex scenes, ultimately realize that the video game industry does a pretty damn good job of representing minority protagonists, and learn that you should never attribute to malice what you can attribute to negligence.

Formative Video Game Experiences

This week we talk about the formative video game experience we had as kids, tell you why it is okay to blow into a video game cartridge but never a pregnant lady’s vagina, explain that Nintendo Power was basically console wars propaganda, share our lingering fears of some one erasing our save files, and realize we sold our childhood so we could buy the next generation of video games.

Episode Eight

Cards Against Humanity

This week we’re not focusing on a specific topic, instead we’re playing a game that turns us all into the most offensive people that you’ve ever met: Cards Against Humanity.

And for that reason, we’ve decided to protect ourselves with secret identities. Sort of.

Get ready to be completely offended as Pancho Batwings, Banana Johnson, Code Name: Kids Next Door, Indiana Bones play Cards Against Humanity, explain how they were trolled by a sixty year old man, discover that Indiana Bones has a side job at the Temple of Groom, learn which one of them is uncircumcised, quote the Jesse Spano Caffeine Pill Freakout, and go down a Top Gun rabbit hole no one saw coming.

Reference material from the episode:

Cards Against Humanity can be purchased from Amazon here, or you can download it (legally) as a PDF and print your own here.
