Oh No! Video Games!

We love this game. We talk about it for far too long. We talk about it without any concern for spoilers, so, keep that in mind!

This is one of those times where everything about the podcast fits together! We're just Mat and Tom this week! It's episode 69! We talk about homophobia in Hitman Absolution! There's some recording issues where, sorry, the wrong microphone was recording on my end, but it's not that terrible. Sorry!

Hey! I edited this for the first time in about a month! I hope I've remembered how to do it!


Dota 2! - Lords management is a weird genre and it either resonates with you or doesn't. I think I like it! I still don't know anything about it!

Heads Up, Hot Dog! - Balance Hot Dogs on people's heads. Don't think too much about why.

Asphix! - A game that uses the honour system. You hold your breath if you character goes underwater and press a button to die if you breathe in. It's rare to allow the player such a level of exploitative ability! 

TF2's Cool Halloween Mode! - Josh describes it as interesting, it ends on Monday so if you're reading this after then? I guess... Wait until next year?

Prison Architect! - Martin created the perfect prison, but do things go his way??

Xcom! - Still an incredible game!

Risk Legacy! - We can barely talk about why it's cool, but keep bringing it up!

Dark Heresy! - Y'all should know about Dark Heresy already!

Dark Heresy!

I was really sleepy this episode, there were long periods while editing where I realised I was actually hearing this stuff for the first time because I had been staring vacantly into space while it actually happened. Hotline Miami! Frog Fractions! Probability 0! Prison Architect! That Slender game! Hawken! Continuity!

There's this band called Brite Futures and they used to be called Natalie Portman's Shaved Head but then they had to change the name for legal reasons and it's a huge shame, because that name only gets more funny as it gets less topical.

ON!VG! Episode 56: From the Creators of Duke Nukem Forever

Hey Tom is uploading the episode this week and he's never done that before so if it's all gone wrong it is probably the fault of internet goblins.

Thanks to Alex "Singyamatokun" Davis, The Glowing Stars and you the listeners.

No Mat this week he was at Gamescom.

The naming convention for episodes of Friends was interesting because, for the most part, the names of TV Show episodes only serve to help super-fans and the production staff. You'll rarely catch anyone saying "-30-", you'll hear them say "The Last Episode of The Wire"

Not that I'm a fan, but Peter Kay used to have a spot on Channel 4 called That Peter Kay Thing, named because it wouldn't matter what the show was called, if you were talking about it down the pub the next day then you probably wouldn't have said the actual title.

So, yeah; for you. This one's the one right after all the Tentacle Bento Stuff.

Oh, we talk about the Feminist Frequency Kickstarter too, which you can and should totally help fund.

We literally get Darker and More Heretical in this, the second season of Dark Heresy.

If you liked the show before we do more of what made it great.

If you never listened before then it's not too important that you do to catch up but you'll miss all sorts of callbacks.

Listen intently, as we murder people that don't deserve it and make exceedingly terrible life decisions.

If you're going to feature a homosexual relationship option in the game, make it in line with the content of the heterosexual ones. Anything less cheapens your sentiment.

Episode 37: ChatChatChatChat

ChatChat. ChatChat? ChatChat.

This week's podcast is "incrungibung", as we talk about Cart Life, the Syndicate and The Darkness II demos, and the finest elevator simulator ever made. It's probably a bit more "raw & uncut" than normal, but das how we do.

Josh edited the podcast, so naturally, you get some Pokémon dubstep this week. "Pokémon Red&Blue (I Won't Let You Take Me Seriously)" comes courtesy of Credulity Kills. And of course, The Glowing Stars play us in and out ever so graciously.

How good is Alex "Singyamatokun" Davies' art, you guys? Seriously.

Still early in the year. We aren't playing a lot of games. I mean, I'm playing a lot of games. I played Catherine and can't talk about it for two weeks! I'm playing Soul Calibur V too and I'm still not able to talk about that. Oh well.

So, on top of the theme tune this week The Glowing Stars also let us use tracks from their colab album with Awkward Terrible. Get the album at: "http://awkwardterrible.bandcamp.com/album/horchata". We've used the songs "George Jetson's Inflatable Cop" and "Nicholas D. Wolfwood". They're great! So are the other tracks on that album!
