Episode 89: Franchise Madness

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.)

Episode 86: One-Flesh Spin Kick

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. 

Episode 85: Winter Game Advisory

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!

Episode 84: Briz & Diddles

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.

Episode 83: Laying Down the Log

2019 is here! Episode 83 sees Jake and Trav share their games beat, new resolutions for the new year, and some general tinkering with the format of the show! But were they able to complete their 2018 resolutions before the clock struck 12? Listen and find out! 

Episode 82: A Christmas Honker

In the final episode of the year, Jake and Travis breakdown their favorite gaming experiences of the year with a load of superlatives. There's even a recap of listener favorite moments from the 2018's Polykill episodes, so, thanks for those. Of course, it wouldn't be Polykill without pickups and beats too! Thanks for another great year of the podcast, and we'll see you in 2019! 

Episode 81: Kill Bill, One Cup

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! 

Episode 78: Creepy Pasta

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! 

Episode 76: Telltale and other Fond Farewells

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.

Episode 75: Yeargasm 3: Through-Thinking Men

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.  

Episode 74: Beat and Switch

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! 

Episode 72: Live from Chicago

Recorded before a live studious audience, this episode sees Travis and guest hosts James (RetroPixel) and MustyHobbit (Second Breakfast) join on the show in Jake's (aww) absence. The usual segments are in play and cities in games is the topic of discush. 

Episode 71: Well, That Was Weird

In the Seventy-First episode, Jake and Trav discuss the upcoming Chicago event with the Cartridge Club, their latest pickups, and what they have been playing since the last show. The discush is a new idea, and the serendipitous turn of events is staggering. Seriously, like one of the weirdest things ever. 

Episode 70: Frankie Goes to Polywood

This is the 70th time that Jake and Trav sat down behind the mics to records an episode of Polykill, but the first with Frankie aka VyprStryke. They discuss their pickups, beats, and some of the biggest games they have yet to conquer. Or something like that....I didn't really pay attention. 

Episode 69: Live E3 69ing

You read that right. This is Jake and Trav at their most adolescent. The 69th episode was recorded live before about 17 Twitch viewers (not including themselves) and consisted of a ton of silly jokes and E3 reactions. Some big games are knocked off of the backlog, and Jake names his first pickups of the year.
