Episode 19: Hearthstone Magic The Kingdom of Hearts Gathering

What a week! Mojang gets acquired by Microsoft for $2.5 billion and… Notch seems a little sad. ISIS (yes, the terrorist group) is using GTAV as a recruitment tool and parents everywhere are now justified in their hatred for the franchise. Kickstarter alters it’s Terms of Service in the hopes of having a bit more teeth […]

Episode 18: I Am Your Density

Yeah.. we shoe-horned that pun didn’t we?  Destiny is out! We talk about it and attempt to give it the benefit of the doubt.  Joe talks a bit about the amazing local co-op of the console port for Diablo 3, and we turn a brief PAX recap into a conversation about the games we’re looking […]

Episode 17: Two Joes… One Nikk

We’re baaaAAAaaack!  We took some time off, but we missed you. On this episode we honor the late, great Robin Williams and bask in his awesomeness. To alleviate our sadness we tossed in some convo about the new Silent Hills announcement that stars Norman Reedus and showcases the talents of two creative powerhouses… Guillermo Del Toro and […]

Episode 16: No Woman’s Sky

This weeks episode takes a look at the highlights from E3 2014. At the top of the episode, we take a look back at our foray into the FuckThisJam gamejam with our game ‘…fish’.  We take a look at the press conferences from the big three and we also highlight some of the standout games (Destiny, […]

Episode 13 – A Billion Dollar Twitch

YAY! Episode #13!  We officially kick out the jams on this one.  For those keeping score at home, we hit up topics like YouTube buying Twitch, Jeff Vogel’s post on the bursting of the indie game bubble and the upcoming game jam, FUCKTHISJAM.  We mention some stuff we’ve been playing, like Space Engineers and Wolfenstein: […]

Episode 6: Pre GDC 2014

In this episode, we do a pre-GDC rundown of possible (and probable) reveals and we reminisce about previous expos. Did you know Shaquille O’Neal is making a successor to Shaq-Fu? You do now. How about Glenn Beck’s Tesla vs Edison movie? This topic hit’s a pretty close to home for us, especially after spending a […]

Episode 4: Whales & Strippers

Time was a huge factor this week, but somehow its a longer episode than most and we cover a TON. Take a listen, send feedback… in that order.  This episode covers the possibility of a Minecraft movie, Ben Kuchera’s op-ed on mature games exploiting sex workers, and game monetization with respect to “whales”. This ep’ is […]

Episode 3: Twitch Plays Humanity

Holy Helix Fossil, Batman! This episode covers some old stuff, like Gilman Louie’s speech at DICE… and some new stuff like the mixed blessing of Irrational Studios closing down, and of course… TwitchPlaysPokemon. We go into politics, the definition of anarchy, and the religions being preached from within the epic social experiment of TPP itself. […]

MtG: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 + Lost Coast Double Trouble IPA

Many moons ago (circa 1996) while in the throes of junior high, I was frequenting a store in upstate New York that specialized in baseball cards (Bo Jackson was my dude!) and comic books (Jim Lee era X-Men, Batman, etc). The shop was slowly allowing table top games and their supplements into its crowded shelf […]

Metro: Last Light + Stone Imperial Russian Stout

It’s SUMMER-time!  In the greater Seattle area, this is always a wonderful prospect. The rain and dreariness we get nine months out of the year decides to dial it back a bit and 70ish degree days with minimal clouds give way to the best time of year. Granted, it’s early in the season (“June-uary”), so […]
