LISTEN ON STITCHER

In case you were wondering, the intro is called "Breakthrough" by Ben Landis, and can be found on the Chiptunes = Win album. The outro music, as always, is the amazing "Roll With the Changes" by the immortal REO Speedwagon.

Our intro bumpers are all performed by the amazingly talented voice artist Kathryn Haywood, and she can be found, communicated-with, and booked on her websiteThank you Kathryn!

Ep76: Jon's Cup is on the Table

We are laughably tired and dulcet this week. Sure, you can blame magnets all you want, but personally I think  its the He-Man cartoon remakes that are to blame.

Ep74: This Guy Needs Pants, Stat

Ep73: The Streisand Effect

Jon is out this week with the Benz, but check this out:

The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.

It is named after American entertainer Barbra Streisand, whose attempt in 2003 to suppress photographs of her residence in Malibu, California, inadvertently generated further publicity.

Games discussed this week include Rayman Legends, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, Xcom Enemy Within, Threes!, Day One Garry’s Incident, Hexcells, Badland, Word Mage, Last of Us, Rust!

Ep71: Winterlude :(

Yes, it's a shitty portmanteau... blame Canada. Anyway, this week Steve and Fraser have a chit chat about games and stuff. Jon was unavailable this week, which is understandable since he must remain in the hyperbolic chamber for several years after living under the ocean all his life.

*May not actually contain discussion on Lando Calrissian.

Ep69: Fraser Vs. Russians

Technical difficulties abound in this week's episode (Thanks, Steve's laptop!).... but we do get to talk about Blizzard's Magic: The Gathering-a-like, Hearthstone and Tim Schaffer's return to the glory days of yore in the point and click adventure game Broken Age. Then, Fraser regales us with tales of his squabbles with some Russians in the Minecraftian horror that is Rust.

Ep40: Star Wars Machete Order

First off, apologies for the background hum noise on this episode... must be magnets or the government. Anyway, we somehow manage to cram about 300 different topics into just over an hour's worth of podcast -- Shriners, Water Country USA, the optimum sequence to watch the Star Wars saga, Microsoft's PR battle, Don Mattrick's highly lucrative move to Zynga as its new CEO, and Sony's E3 pandering...  I've no idea how the show formed this way... it happened. It just happened... emergent podplay and all that.

Oh, here's the link to the alternate Star Wars viewing order Steve talks about this week: Star Wars Machete Order

This week we cover such marvelous games as Octodad, Walking Dead: 400 Days, Rust, Minecraft, The Last of Us, and Witcher 2

Some of the Jedi masters among you may have noticed that we've gone back to the original music, and so... much groceries to Darren Korb over at SuperGiant Games for granting us permission to use the whole Bastion Soundtrack for the musical accompaniment. You are the wind beneath our hotwings.

You can buy the album here.

Anyway, we hope you enjoy this. Also, if you have the time, leave us a comment and let us know you're listening.

Cheers!
