All of Them


Previously on Pawlykeeeeel

Trav completed Nier Automata and Resident Evil 7 while Jake reverted to beating zero games.  Jake did pick up Destiny 2 and is looking forward to playing more Uncharted Lost Legacy.  The end of Half-Life, Bethesda’s secret game, and the weird-ass Atari box round out the Hot Jakes.  Favorite adventure games and ones high on the to-do list serve as the TAWPIG AHHFF DITTSTCUCCHHH.



Hot Jakes

News topics that Jake has an opinion on

Jake OLLIE’S the following

DOOM and Wolfenstein II on Switch (HELL AWAITS)



Completed Games or Retired:

  • Trav:   Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance (PS2), QuackShot (Gen), Ren & Stimpy: Stimpy’s Invention (Gen), New Super Mario Bros (DS), Ratchet & Clank (PS4), Mega Man 4 (NES)

  • Jake:  Destiny 2 (Beaten) 3DS catalog (Retired)



Jason, @NJRetro, who turned all his friends against him because he makes poorly timed boner jokes, beat Jotun.


Taylor, @muragaru553, MightyQDawg, and Duke all finished Mega Man 2, a game about a confused tween who licks pickles erotically for fun.


Diego, @alatinolawyer, finished ChronoTrigger, a game about friends who time travel to find if an Axe growing out of their grandpa’s head was genetic or because he smoked pumpkins since his twenties.


Ryan, @itsrocketsauce, completed Walking Dead New Frontier, a game where a young girl survives long enough to know that the smell of dungeons really do remind her of home.


Cliff, @Cliffhikes, who has always believed that eating (a) crotch  requires both hands and a good appetite, finished Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry.


Josh, @FranticSociety, a guy who has a special instagram account of his dog gnawing on nothing but goblins finished Sonic Mania.


Caleb, @CalebJRoss, finished Nier Automata, a game where sexually provokative androids scour a desert looking for their lost weasel


Frankie @Vyprstryke and JD @PlayNListen beat Destiny 2.  Frankie and JD of course two guys who met online in a chatroom for people whose greatest fear was waking up naked with lasagna on their face.


Dean @Round_2_Gaming was forgotten about last week so his beats for the last month include Final Fantasy Theatrhythm, Mega Man ZX, Uncharted 4 as well as Yoshi’s New Island and Metroid Samus Returns on 3DS. Samus in that one, of course, returning from a dark stint as a washed up bounty hunter turned drunken TSA agent in Colorado Springs.  Welcome back Samus.


Kyle @DOPLIC beat two contrasting titles in DOOOOM and PonyIsland.  PonyIsland of course about the life and times of Pablo Escobar and his cocaine fueled dreams of being a pony.


Myles @FlockOfNerds finished Unfinished Swan, Yakuza Kiwami, and Touch My Katamari which we would totally do but when we try Myles tells us he still needs to wash it.


Musty @MustyHobbit finished Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 and Ori and the Blind Forest, a game where nature gets wasted on mouthwash and tries to mercilessly kill you.


Jeffrey @SelfDestructow finished Walking Dead Season 2, Far Cry 4, and Drive Drive Drive… the latter about a getaway driver who tries to escape a children’s hospital with a cooler full of organs.


Scott @VGCollectaholic, who once sunburned his johnson so bad he still gets turned on at the mere thought of aloe, finished Nier Automata and Destiny 2.

Added to Backlog:

  • Trav: Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance 2(XB), Mega Man X (SNES)

  • Jake: Mario+Rabbids, KAMIKO, Severed
