Episode 87: Kugelschreiber

Lola Shiraishi (game industry freelancer & producer) joins us this week as we take a look at Former State Senator (and game hater) Leland Yee’s conviction, the dramatic difference a decade can make in games, and the whole debacle surrounding Spintires. For the Lightning Round we analyze a theory that eSports is ruining PC gaming […]

Episode 39: #Teledildonics

Remember, it’s not about the size of the podcast, it’s how you use it.  This week we investigate the rumors around the Konami/Kojima split and then weigh in on YouTube’s entry into the game-streaming foray. We get psyched for the Ready Player One movie news and the inexplicable existence of Russian Halo.  And finally we finish […]

Episode 38: Mixtape For My Bae

Big news from Nintendo this week and Joe E., Joe A., Nikk and Nate grab the mics to help each other understand it. We pour some pints from the Bushnell Brewery, sift through this weeks video game news and compare ’90s mixtapes to playlists.  It’s the same. But different. In this episode: – Nintendo announces it’s […]

Episode 34: Molydeuxs And Don’ts

What starts as an innocent Dr. Seuss homage segues into a larger, unplanned allegory about context.  We make mention of the new iTunes “Pay Once & Play” feature, and subsequently turn our attention to Jon Ronson’s New York Times article that revisits the Justine Sacco/Twitter debacle (note: we come dangerously close to falling into the […]

Episode 23: Mass Password Simulator

This week we welcome our friend Michael Chambers into the fold to help us make sense of the super-disturbing “Hatred” trailer (we’re not linking to it), as well as kick off ANOTHER new segment in which we bastardize the old Password game-show. It gets hilarious. From there we revisit Kim Kardashian’s influence on mobile gaming […]

Episode 20: Guy In Pink Suit Loves Drugs

New stuff this week!  The boys take a new Ten Words or Less segment out for a spin to describe games they haven’t played yet. Joe Erskine was out this week, so Joe Arroyo takes over the host-throne.  As per usual however, it’s mostly a bunch of dudes jawing about video games (amongst other things). […]

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 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 15: Loosey Goosey

This edition is loose, delightfully all over the place and supremely entertaining.  On this episode of Cheat Codes we talk about Valve’s VR headset, the (possible?) end of Computer and Video Games Magazine, and Apple’s new iOS dev language ‘Swift.’  The lightning round culminates in a robust shout-out to our friend, Trent Reed.  Go ahead, get […]
