Two weeks have passed since Jake beat more games than Travis, and it looks like an 8-bit retro fire was kindled 'neath the haunches of Travis. More games were added to their collections and they wind up the episode with a pretty cool game designed by Briz. So, listen and share as usual, please.
I guess they knew this would be a longer episode. Should be called "The Waiting Game" instead am I right? Anyway, I guess it's longer because they actually beat some games this time and had plenty to talk about. They also play that one game from that other episode where they both independently brought up Tonya Harding. Weird.
Welp, the Polykill boys are back from a trip to C3 and Too Many Games and discuss their pickups, hangouts, and what they are playing and trying beat. With a pile of beats under their belt and some listener questions, Jake and Trav wax verbose about their gaming life over the last two weeks. Check it, share it.
Well, Jake and Trav had a lot of catching up to do since the last episode. Wild pickup stories, 5K magic tricks, collection updates, some E3 reactions, and more. A few games come in and out of the backlog of each host and it seems that Jake may never get his backlog sorted.
You know the drill by now, yeah? Trav and Jake are back at it and have managed to lighten their backlogs a bit more since the last episode. The discussion turns to games that they would replay because they love them, and others that they would NEVER replay because they love them.
Well, the boys are back with a slew (slough?) (slue?) of new games to talk about! They each manage to see some through to the credits as well as just play away on a bunch more. Rage 2, Days Gone, Panzer Dragoon Zwei, and more see discussion time, and favorite video game vehicles closes out the show!
Location, Location, Location. This episode's discussion centers around some of the Trav and Jake's favorite gaming locations via a fun little guessing game. More games were conquered and jettisoned from the backlog and as always a few new ones trickle into the collection.
After a visit from The Single Banana, Jake and Trav take a tour back through their backlogs and 2019 gaming resolutions and provide updates on where they stand with each. Jake is skulking through FarCry New Dawn, and Trav is just playing weird NES games. Jake is making some small progress toward completing his 2019 resolutions, and Trav has already chipped a fair away a fair amount.
The loneliest number of everyone's favorite yellow fruit joins Jake and Travis on an adventure through their backlogs and favorite NES titles. They talk about some deep cuts and fan favorites on the most classicest of video game systems and manage to make a few jokes along the way.
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.)
