We took a little time off because of some real world events and of course the holidays, sorry for not giving a heads up ahead of time but, as they say, shit happens. Hopefully you guys played Return of the Obra Dinn like you were supposed to because we are finally going to talk about it. Along with all the other games we got into during the break including Rimworld, Read Dead Redemption 2, Jedi: Fallen Order, and more. And don’t forget to listen till the end to get the skinny on what our next game will be, it’s the first game we are playing by request and we’re pretty excited about it!

Yes this episode is quite late. No, we are not very sorry, chalk it up to just another 2020 woe. Good news is the world hasn’t ended…yet. We aren’t dealing with radioactive fallout, there aren’t roving gangs of thugs, and most importantly we don’t live in Arizona. Yes, that’s right we played Wasteland 2 over the last month and have some hot takes on the importance of antacids and discourse on the finer points of Snake Squeezin’. Don’t ask, just listen

If you’ve got a thing for men in tights, deep baritone voices, hanging ominously from gargoyles, and capes, then I know of a great club down the street that yo-……wait, no, I know of a great game that you would love! BATMAN: Arkham Asylum was our homework for last month and some of us even went above and beyond to play some of the other games in the series as well. Tune in to find out what the boys thought of this 2009 Game of the Year and to learn how we managed to tie Woody the Woodpecker into an episode about Batman. It’s easier than you might imagine. Plus get the skinny on what next months episode will be about!

Aye dios mio! The boys tackled the cult classic Grim Fandango last month. But more than that, we got into the gritty details of Bill Shaver’s life, the finer points of the decline of adventure PC games, and the lasting impact that the game made on the PC gaming scene. But don’t let that distract you from the fact that It’s a game that came out back in 1998 when undertaker threw mankind off hell in a cell and plummeted 16ft through an announcers table.

Ahoy ye scurvy landlubbers! Set your sights on the open sea and take a trip of adventure with the boys in the Command Center. Sid Meiers is known most for Civilization, but he has dipped his toe in many waters, including the Carribean. This month we took on his try at a pirate simulator and had a hell of a time with it. We also are pretty excited about next month’s episode which will be our 1 year anniversary of broadcasting. We picked a great game for you all to play along with so don’t miss out and don’t forget your dramamine!

More boosters! More struts! NO! WAIT! EJECT EJECT EJE-……*Revert to launch*

Why wait for Elon to take us to Mars when you can do it yourself right now from the comfort of your own sad basement apartment? 2020 is finally here which means we are that much closer to the release of Kerbal Space Program 2. With this in mind, the boys decided to revisit an old favorite. If KSP teaches us anything, it’s that there is a silver lining to any failure…EXPLOSIONS! YAYYYY!!
