Ep26: Ridiculous Fishing is Ridiculous

This week Steve laments his own gaming hypocrisies and Jon steadfastly defends the despicable *woman beating simulator* known as Tomb Raider. You know, the one with no tombs in it. To be fair, he primarily supports the gameplay mechanics, and disapproves the hitting of women.

Two beefs are generated in this episode, chiefly with game IP's that shit out an additional, numberless sequel after it's story arc has already been satisfactorily closed, and an organic beef grew out of a complaint about Polygon's overly-high review scores.

We also want to thank all of you wonderful listeners (of whom we just became aware of). There are far more of you than we ever thought, and to say that this is something of a dream being realized would be pretty accurate. So for that we extend our deepest thanks.  Now would it kill you to leave us a review on iTunes? CheersThx

This week, games covered are Mark of the Ninja, Tomb Raider, Sim City,Ridiculous Fishing, God of War: Ascension, Gears of War: Judgment, Infamous 2, and Little Inferno (which frankly sounds bananas).

In case you were wondering, the intro is called "Breakthrough" by Ben Landis, and can be found on the Chiptunes = Win album, along with many others that I use for the low background stuff.

The outro music is called "Hexapod" by the incredible BLAZAR.

Ep25: Shim Shitty

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. This week we tackle the catastrophic Sim City launch, We discuss why EA is literally Hitler, and round it off with a listing of all the studios EA has bought, milked dry and then closed.

We also touch on The Walking Dead TV Show, Swamp Thing comics, the "Riker's Beard" moment in every serialized TV shows, and we give out a lot of really bad parenting advice.

Games discussed this week include (but are not limited to) XCOM, Real Racing (iOS), Sim City,the God of War: Ascension demo (as well as the God of War franchise as a whole), and Organ Trail (iOS). 

A lot of downright grumbling and complaining in this one, but it's probably worth it, so you should still listen anyway.

Ep24: Screw Raiding Tombs, Let's Just beat Lara With Sticks For 6 Hours

Oh knock it off. Of course we don't condone the severe and prolonged beating of gaming's favorite exploretress... we do find it distressing how willingly Crystal Dynamics throws her under the grisly bus, though. Anyway...

As a black chasm of newslessness descends on the gaming industry in wake of the PS4 announcement, we are left with fully-healed voices and absolutely nothing to say.

At least Jon played something new, namely Real Racing 3 on iOS, and the new Star Wars tables for Zen Pinball. Steve just played God of War HD and Surgeon Simulator 2013.

Thrill, as we wait for the God of War: Ascension demo to download over the PlayStation Network. Gasp, as we discuss PS3 power supply replacement, and coo as we fawn over our brand new iPad Mini's.

This is the second-shortest GamePunchers ever, so.... .....I'm not sure where that sentence was going. Enjoy?
