Favorite Weapons in Video Games pt 1


A lot going on this week! We do an Anime Check-in, where Ron discusses his first gentle steps into the world of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Joey talks about his continued love for Sailor Moon (despite the annoyingly limited monster vocabulary in season 2), and Paul shares some thoughts on recent Love, Death & Robots episodes. We also come up with a plan to update our fantasy video game draft in the near future, so stay tuned for that. In terms of what we’ve been playing lately, we got a little Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a smattering of Mario Party Superstars, a dash of It Takes Two and The Quarry, and Paul celebrates his first video game figure purchase (of the Geralt Ronin figure from Dark Horse Direct, link in timestamps below). Our feature is (some of) our favorite weapons in video games! We run out of time to cover all of them, so look forward to a future episode with more!

State of Play and Summer Game Fest


E3 season is upon us, even if the show itself is once again missing in action. In its absence, we propose claiming the term “E3” as a broad term meaning “big summer announcement season.” After this year’s Summer Game Fest, we need something… more exciting, and “E3” still sparks excitement in many of us. So… happy E3, everyone! Does that work? We’ll workshop it. Paul, Ron, and Joey talk about what they’ve been playing, but then a dramatic text rips Ron away from us (cue dramatic reality TV cut and tense music), leaving Paul and Joey to chat about Sony’s State of Play and the Summer Game Fest showcase. Resident Evil 4, Final Fantasy XVI, Lady D, The Rock, The Last of Us, and so much more. We also chat about what we’ve been playing, including No Man’s Sky and Elden Ring. Next week is our Pretty Pixels After Dark, celebrating episode 69, so join us for lots of painfully awkward sex talk!

Odd Gaming Associations


Slight change of plans, dear listener. Paul is out of town again this week, so we’ve pushed the “favorite weapons in video games” episode back a few weeks and are, instead, talking about some of our weird (and not weird) gaming associations. Ron and Joey talk a brisk jaunt down memory lane and share some associations we have with specific games. Which game do you suppose one of us used No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom album as a soundtrack for? And which of us was watching Dateline, playing Doom, and listening to Nine Inch Nails’ The Downward Spiral? We also meander in and out of related memories, including Zours candies, The Box (a music video dial-in show from the 80s/90s), gaming snacks and more. We also talk about the partner lineup for next week’s Summer Game Fest, KotOR coming to Switch, Sailor Jupiter, and what we’ve been playing.
