The nine squared episode of the podcast brings Jake and Trav together again to discuss the games that they are playing, beating, and restocking! There are a slew (slough? slue?) of listener questions which round out the topic of discush and bring a ton of laughs and insight!
On this very special episode of the cast, Trav and Jake welcome Pam from Cannot Be Tamed and Media Mavens! The trio discuss games new to their respective backlogs, games beat, and what's up next! Trav and Pam geek out about their love of true crime and how it relates to games!
Red Dead Redemption 2 has descended upon Jake, while Trav is almost halfway through with Spider-Man. Of course, more beats and additions are covered as well as, and listener questions and resolutions round out the discush.
To get in the spooky spirit, Jake and Trav decide to read some video game-centric creepy stories from the Internet. Some are pretty funny, and Travis reads some of them. Jake starts an unexpected RPG and Trav just keeps play little Gameboy games. I guess they count though. Happy Halloween!
Do you want to play a game? Like a really juvenile game about video game antagonists? Well, Jake and Trav do, since they're weird. They also mention some of the games that they have beaten, added to their backlogs and more. Listen along and get in the Halloween spirit.
Jake and Trav are back from Videogeddon 26 and literally fall face-first into the studio to record the latest episode. With the closure of TellTale games, they decide to reminisce about some of their favorite, now-defunct studios. Of all the normal beats, pickups, and terrible jokes are present, but with a road-weary and hungover sheen.
Well, Jake and Trav have been at this for three full years now, so that's a thing that gets discussed a little in this episode. They also answer some listener questions, as well as discuss the games that they have bought, sold, traded, hawked, fenced, bartered, stolen, and hustled.
This time around Jake and Trav talk about their love of the Nintendo Switch. From the games that they want both released and yet to come, to the convenience and joy this little fun machine give them. Pickups, beats, and on the radar cover a wide array of games as there are plenty in each category this time! Also, Nintendo Switch!
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…
I have been holding off playing my Sega Master System ever since I changed out my CRT’s for PVM’s because I needed to get RGB cables to hook the console up to those fresh, sexy professional video monitors. Unfortunately, for a few months, my RGB cable/amphetamine dealer did not have those particular cables in stock. But finally, after what seemed like YEARS, I went to check and the Master System cables were in stock so I tossed those in my cart with some uppers to boot and was ready to get my party started. The cables arrived just yesterday and I needed a game to play and test the system out on so I could see just how sexily wonderful the PVM’s made the Master System look.
I always thought this game was a weird tie-in to a TNT action drama that would be extremely under budgeted, janky as hell, and not really necessary. I wasn’t wrong, but I must say… it’s not that bad. My curiosity was piqued when scrolling through a list of N64 games, I saw this one listed under the fighting game genre. Fighting game? I didn’t know this was a fighting game. I had imagined an action-adventure Ocarina of Time wannabe where a polygonal Lucy Lawless runs around a forest stabbing rabbid goblins with her giant sword.
Jake loads up on caffeine and can't go outside because of the storm so decides to shoot a pickup video of all his recent Nintendo Switch pickups for his collection. Fast paced entertainment! Jake's collection: https://collection.gamevaluenow.com/s... Thanks to Frankie@vyprstryke for the loot!
