Ep 82 – Post-PAX, Outragers, Nintendo Switch

Episode 82. March 20th, 2017. This episode is a bit all over the place in terms of topic, but we think it’s worth the listen.

Ep 81 – Switching It Up

Episode 81. February 28th, 2017. Mike and Andrew spend this episode talking about games for the majority of it (yay!) and shift around a bit with retro gaming and collections of gaming (eBay collectors beware!). Ultimately Andrew’s difficulty of having a gaming collection is how do you show it off, or even begin to decide […]

Ep 75 – We’re Alive + Post-PAX Stuff

Episode 75. September 20th, 2016. We’re alive! Sorry we’ve been so poorly communicative of things lately. With the new job and some other side projects that took some priority in life, Andrew’s gaming has been disheveled. That said, we’re back and we’re talking about life and things at PAX (skip ahead like 15 minutes or […]

Ep 55 – Xbox One Experience & The Division Beta

Episode 55. January 31st, 2016. WARNING: Andrew goes on a rant this episode. It’s not like a rant rant, but he’s just confused about the Xbox One. Trying really hard to enjoy the console but it’s hard to ignore the flaws. That said, as much of a train wreck of an episode this week’s is, we […]

Ep 53 – Deleted Mario Maker Levels, The Division & More

Episode 53. January 16th, 2016. Mike and Andrew chat about video editing to start, but end up talking about how Nintendo is apparently deleting Mario Maker levels that are “unpopular.” Andrew thinks it’s bullshit.

Episode 50. December 21st, 2015. Mike and Andrew record the last podcast of the year, discussing game of the year choices.

Episode 45. November 15th, 2015. This episode discusses Fallout 4. Oh and we somehow we tangent off into Black Friday sales, but then back into Fallout 4.

Ep 39 – Realtalk: Nerd Culture and Being a Decent Person

Episode 39. September 27th, 2015. Nerd Culture has made major headway in the last decade, but still gets a bad rap. Recently a friend made a joke that just didn’t sit well with Andrew, regarding “nerd” culture. Why do we find the need to criticize the nerd/geek because they like Marvel, Pokemon, Mario, or any […]
