This is episode 89, and it's the one where Jake actually beats a game or two. There's a brand new Ground Game, and both Jake and Travis learn a lot about themselves when they must each eliminate a beloved game franchise from existence, for all eternity. (Just hypothetically, we don't have that kind of power.)
So Jake is pretty hungover in this, "The Super Mario Bros. 2" of podcast episodes, but he powers through with the help of Trav and Red Bull (not a sponsor). Discussion around the games that they are playing like, Apex Legends, Crackdown 3, and RDR2 keep things moving until they get to the mad-lib discussion.
Guess who's back from *clap *clap *clap *clap deep in the heart of Texas? You guessed it, Jake! After his absence for the past few episodes, he and Trav have some catching up to do. With a handful of games beaten, anecdotes, and plenty of options for an episode title, and a discush that is revived from Halloween, 86 is maybe the Polykillest Polykill episode ever.
Jake is still hard at work at the top secret research facility in the big-hat state of Texas which means Briz is back once again! He carries on the traditions set forth by Jake and didn't beat any games while Trav knocked Golf Story and a few classics off the backlog. Listeners have a few questions for Briz before the two hosts get cozy and talk about a few games that freeze them to the core. It's a good time, check it out!
Fresh off of being awarded 2018's Podcast of the Year, the show endures an immense shakeup as Jake steps away and Briz has to fill in. All the regular fare is here including some custom tunes by the greatest rap duo on either side of any river.
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Brizzy Awards, where the categories are made up, and the points don't matter! This is where I highlight some of my favorite things from the year in gaming, so settle in and let's see if your tastes are as good as mine!
Jake grabs a few armloads of Switch games to close out the year, almost too many to name here! The collection has grown to 85 at the time of this recording with many more to come! Thanks for watching! Watch Caleb J Ross on YouTube, he's great even if he just holds his beer.
Having missed much of the scheduled beta sessions for dumb reasons like "family", "vacations to Disney World", and "parental responsibilities", I finally got to play the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. this weekend. With about 5 hours under my belt, I managed to explore a little, finish a handful of quests, and team up with a stranger so I feel like I've experienced enough of the game to give some initial impressions.
Boy oh girl, do I love that SHINING series! I JUST spent a sizable load of my hard earned cash on a mere disc that convinces my GameCube to load an emulator that will play my Game Boy games on the console! I have been WANTING that disc for a couple of years now but the price was climbing HIGHER and HIGHER! No one wants to pay $70, $80, dare I say $NINETY for a single little disc that isn’t even a game. I had to finally grab it though and I needed a game to test it all out on so…
