  • Episode 190: Pass The Rot

    27/11/2021 Duración: 03h43min

    It's a month full of stuffing yoiur face with turkey and discounted products, so it's only natural that this month's podcast also be filled to bursting with all sorts of discussion. Uzuki joins me in talking SMTV, FFXIV, and a whole heaping load of nearly all things Xbox.

  • Yoko Taro's Football Management Simulator

    23/10/2021 Duración: 03h24min

    The big problem with putting off the next recording to wait for new things to talk about is that we become crushed under the weight of content. Uzuki joins me in deseprately trying to sift through the weeks of reveals, trailers and new games that caught our attention. Spoilers: it's a lot. Also Spoilers: this episode is mostly spoiler-free, so stick around to hear our impressions on Inscryption, Tales of Arise, Re:Kinder and a whole bunch more I've already forgotten about.

  • Episode 188: Amity Is A Precious Baby Who Must Be Protected

    04/08/2021 Duración: 02h21min

    After getting the ugliness surrounding a certain storm-named studio, Quill and Uzuki join me in a mostly positive, feel good episode where we praise some of the best new releases in both videogames and animation, including The Owl House, He-Man, NEO The World Ends With You, The Great Ace Attorney, and (unsuprisingly) a whole lot of Final Fantasy-related stuff. Get comfy and listen to the good vibes!

  • Episode 187: Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Spoilercast

    11/07/2021 Duración: 03h06min

    Uzuki joins me for a (mostly) Final Fantasy-focused episode. At long last we offer our thoughts and theories about the PS5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake and its Yuffie DLC Episode. Between the two of us, who has the crazier, borderline fanfiction predictions for the series going forward? That's right, I said "series", because this is defintely going to go on longer than a trilogy of games.

  • Episode 186: Put Faust in Dead by Daylight

    29/06/2021 Duración: 03h43min

    Snuggles, Uzuki, Blue Map, Quill......and Chaos.E3 talk, Guilty Gear talk, Demo talk, Ratchet and Clank talk. Chaos talk.

  • Episode 185: Maybe I Should Put A Disclaimer In This One

    01/06/2021 Duración: 02h23min

    I swear, Blue Map always brings out the best and worst from me. It's an otherwise chill episode this week where we recap on a few things already mentioned, like the rumored Final Fantasy Origin, the perils of PC gaming, how Invincible is great despite the meme, how Cruella might somehow be better BECAUSE of the meme, and how Overwatch's porn market has outlived the game's at this point.

  • Episode 184: In This House, We Stan Nero The Sable

    25/05/2021 Duración: 03h12s

    Uzuki joins me today to mock me about my recent birthday and deteroriating flesh, followed by a lengthy speculation about the very-possibly-real rumor surrounding Final Fantasy Origin and what implications that game may bring for the rest of the franchise going forward. We also mourn the passing of Berserk author Kentaro Miura, the struggle for 10,000 achievements, and some positive discussions about Bioware for a change.

  • Episode 183: What Does Dango Taste Like?

    18/04/2021 Duración: 02h09min

    It's fluffy and squishy. Is it candy? Is it a meal? I want it.Quill and I get talking on Monster Hunter Rise, the return (?) of watching movies in a theater, the return (!) of PC gaming, the latest Resident Evil 8 news, and I think some anime gets tossed in as well.Listen!

  • Episode 182: That's How Ninjas Do It

    08/03/2021 Duración: 03h38min

    A whole year stuck at home...sure has been insane, huh? I mean, not for me, it's been bliss, but I'm sure it's inconvenienced some folks out there.Good thing the videogame well hasn't dried up, though it is starting to drop a few inches. That's why we need to stick to our fan favorites, as Quill demonstrates with the latest Nintendo Direct and Pokemon news, and I do with Final Fantasy VII, aka the reason for the existence of the latest State of Play. Uzuki is a lot more well-rounded and drops a few games of his own. Ending Song: "Descendant of Shinobi" (Yuffie's Theme) Vocal Cover by Lizz Robinett

  • Episode 181: Game of the Year 2020 Discussion (Part 2)

    20/01/2021 Duración: 03h01s

    It's the second part of our Game of the Year deliberations, where we take one final look (at least I really hope so) at 2020 and see which games get the coveted crown of Game of the Year.

  • Episode 180: Game of the Year 2020 Discussion (Part 1)

    16/01/2021 Duración: 02h49min

    One of the benefits of 2020 being a monster hellscape year that felt twice as long as it actually was is that it never feels too late to reminisce about its videogame releases. Myself, Blue Map, Beeb, Shadowfire and Uzuki look back at the post apocalyptic remains and come to agree: hey, there were some darn good videogames that came out. Better therapy during these dark times than actual therapy (note: please actually do get therapy if you need it).Our first half of the 2020 discussions start off with Best Visuals, Best Soundtrack, Best Characters and Best Moments. Spoilers will be given an advance warning as needed.

  • Episode 179: The Game Awards 2020 (plus Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X impressions)

    15/12/2020 Duración: 03h13min

    This episode's almost as big as the PS5 itself; a long gap between recordings (as well as Blue Map's long overdue return) means a whole lot of fat to chew. We talk PS5, we talk Xbox Series X, we talk Sephiroth, Franchise revivals under new legally-distinct monikers, Cyberpunk 2077.....yeah, that happened...and so much  more! 

  • Episode 178: Less Corona, More Korone

    30/10/2020 Duración: 02h15min

    So many much grinding.Even when playing current games, my brain has been working overtime in preparing for the next generation. Beeb and Uzuki are less obsessed, but no less entertaining in this jam-packed Halloween episode, featuring spoooooooky voices!* *okay, in truth our recording got a bit messed up due to connection issues, so you may experience instances of weirdly-pitched commentary. I edited it best I could so it should still be perfectly listenable. Sorry about that, contrary to our motto we aren't professionals.

  • Episode 177: Games About Pigeons

    22/09/2020 Duración: 04h21min

    Been a while since Shadowfire and Uzuki joined in, so we've got a real SUGOI DEKAI episode today. The three of us talk about the PS5 event, the launch games, Final Fantasy XVI, Avengers, and my newest shame: Vtubers.If you manage to listen through all that, there's another segment where Beeb and I talk some more PS5 stuff in addition to the latest Monster Hunter Direct (I guess there were some other games in there too). Intro: Eekum Bokum But It's A Song (Kyle Allen Music)Outro: Final Fantasy XVI Trailer Music Re-Created (Alex Moukala EXTRA)Ending: Bury The Light (Casey Edwards Ft. Victor Borba)

  • Episode 176: More Joker? You Got It!

    02/09/2020 Duración: 02h21min

    You'd think there would be more free time during this stay-at-home lifestyle, but it took a bit of time before one of my regulars became available. Beeb and I try to catch up to current events with a healthy dose of discussions involving comic properties, comic silliness, corporate toxicity, next-gen speculation (well, more like frustration), fantasy....yeah, all that good stuff.

  • Episode 175: EVO Must Evolve Or Die

    08/07/2020 Duración: 01h32min

    It's not the most pleasant of conversations today, but Blue Map is still eager to talk through some of the latest bad news surrounding the FGC. We also try to lighten the mood with discussions about open world games, OLED TVs, and telling anti-mask people to go to hell.

  • Episode 174: Friends Not Included

    29/06/2020 Duración: 02h44min

    Beeb joins me for a whole lot of Nintendo Switch-related talk, thanks to a collection of coincidences that helped add some hidden gems (at insanely discounted prices) to an already extensive list of games. A few of the other common topics pop up as well: Anime, Final Fantasy, the growing existential terror that permeats throughout 2020....all good stuff.

  • Episode 173: Soft Maybe

    04/06/2020 Duración: 02h23min

    Blue Map is finally back after a long overdue absence, so the two of us get to talking about the state of fighting games in the hopes it can distract us from the state of everything else. We also briefly speculate on the PS5 event (before we knew about its postponement, see the aforementioned state of everything else), talk about why Robocop is cooler than Terminator and Cobra is cooler than G.I. Joe. Lil Stamp (FFVII Remake) Song by Megami33:

  • Episode 172: Final Fantasy VII Remake Spoilercast (Complete Game)

    05/05/2020 Duración: 02h58min

    We're holding nothing back this time, from full spoilers of the Remake, the original game, the Compilation stuff, to unrestrained fanboyish excitement. The four of us unanimously loved Final Fantasy VII Remake and can barely contain ourselves from deep diving into every possible element. The characters, the story, the big unanswered questions and what it means for the future, it's all here. Today's guests include LockedOnTarget and Uzuki, as well as the years-long return of VagrantWinds. The last time he was on, we were still speculating on FFXV! 

  • Episode 171: Final Fantasy VII Remake Impressions (Chapter 1-3)

    13/04/2020 Duración: 02h26min

    You don't know how good it feels just typing out that title...the game that many have anticipated almost as long as this podcast has been up has finally arrived.LockedOnTarget has returned right on time to join me in discussing the first three chapters of the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Spoilers JUST for those three chapters (and a couple for chapter 4 that slip out, sorry). The original game gets spoiled a bit as well, so keep that in mind before you listen.
