On The Level Podcast



Join us as we plunge head-first into the world of videogames. Amusing, informative and a little goaty.


  • Episode 160 - Back at it again

    16/02/2020 Duración: 01h25min

    After a small hiatus Grandpa remembered how to push "play" and "record" on the old tape-recorder and so we're back! A lot has happened in the intervening months so we cherry pick a few topics in order to get ourselves match-fit again...

  • Episode 159 - Joker/Dancer

    19/10/2019 Duración: 01h15min

    Death Stranding spoilers, review embargos, Stadia hype, WWE 2K20 suplexes back a few generations, Fortnite is off, Fortnite is on and so much League of Legends on this weeks episode. Plus: is the Joker any good? After banging our heads together over it; neither of us are entirely sure. But, lordy there's a lot of dancing.

  • Episode 158 - PS5 & PS Now

    11/10/2019 Duración: 01h06min

    It was a quiet, unassuming few days but unbeknownst to us Sony had a few things to say for themselves... And what a bizarre triple whammy!? PS Now takes a price tumble, cuddly Shawn quietly leaves and the PS5 gets and official name: PS5. Gasp.

  • Episode 156 - Nostalgia

    23/09/2019 Duración: 01h14min

    We'll always have Paris... and Final Fantasy 7. After a excessively long loading time we are back in the game, and this week we catch up on some of the bigger stories and ask why it is we keep going back to Final Fantasy 7.

  • Episode 155 - Consoles or Games

    05/08/2019 Duración: 01h25min

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Actually, who cares; the more important question is whether the console sells the games or whether the games sell the consoles. The answer isn't quite as obvious as either of us originally thought and the whole conversation nearly gets derailed when we fall out over an argument about VO (I'm right, btw).

  • Episode 154 - SDCC 2019

    29/07/2019 Duración: 02h01min

    Can you ever have too much of a good thing? Marvel & Disney are certainly exploring the boundaries of that sentiment if their Phase 4 plans are anything to go by. We also had another look at Square's Avengers game - only we didn't see it (and it looks like we won't at Gamescom either). And, of course, Kojima keeps going the full Kojima.

  • Episode 153 - Switch Lite/Fishing

    22/07/2019 Duración: 01h35min

    The worst kept secret of 2019 (so far, at least!)has been spilled but will we all lap it up like hungry cats? If history is anything to go by then yes. The Nintendo Switch Lite is here to bury itself in your heart until the inevitable "distracted boyfriend meme" / Switch Pro scenario in a few months time. Maybe. Also, Harry wants to fish.

  • Episode 152 - HMS Censorship & Seamen

    08/07/2019 Duración: 01h33min

    Ahoy! Sony acts the prude and Nintendo lets it all hang out? Will Marvel's Avengers have a break out showing at SDCC? The Sims gets a Semen Cafe? We keep a look out on the horizon for plenty of other news so join as we set sail on the good ship "Censor" and enjoy a complimentary cool and refreshing glass of "Definitely Milk."

  • Episode 151 - Money & Garbage

    01/07/2019 Duración: 01h36min

    Games should cost more but they don't... yet, but is that about to change dramatically with all those attractive streaming services you'll be tempted to waggle your wallet at? Also pissing in bins.

  • Episode 150 - E3 2019 Autopsy

    24/06/2019 Duración: 02h14min

    We're back,baby! We've got a black light and a whole box of latex gloves so let's start prodding... it's the E3 2019 autopsy party and you're all invited! (There is liberal use of the, perhaps, dirtiest of swear-words; so fair warning. We also say EA a fair bit.)

  • Episode 149 - Death Stranding

    03/06/2019 Duración: 01h38min

    Yup, it's a video game. It'll be nonsense; good looking, mechanically sound nonsense. You know this already. Aside from the 8 mins that Kojima splooged onto the internet earlier this week we go through the most recent batch of pre-E3 leaks and rumours. Sorry, "leaks."

  • Episode 148 - Getting Into Bed

    27/05/2019 Duración: 01h41min

    Absolute filth this week - so many new couplings it's like the cover of some grotty gossip rag! Microsoft and Sony, Sony and Hollywood, Fromsoft and George RR Martin, Epic and everyone (or Epic and nobody), but all Simon wants to talk about is teeth...

  • Episode 147 - Rages & Plagues

    20/05/2019 Duración: 01h54min

    Two big games out this week with one deserving success far more than the other; is that fair? Also Randy puts his foot in it, a whole load of Ubisoft bods put their foot in it, Harry gets animated about DOTA and Simon gets an awkward boner over animated foxes.

  • Episode 146 - Days Gone & Sonic

    06/05/2019 Duración: 01h55min

    Days Gone is incredible! Days Gone is awful! Days Gone is average! (delete as applicable). Seriously though; what the Hell is going on with the reviews for this one? We dig in and try to figure it out. Plus our thoughts on Endgame, the Saint's Row movie and that Sonic trailer. Come back Bob Hoskins, all is forgiven.

  • Episode 145 - Star Wars Celebration '19

    21/04/2019 Duración: 01h34min

    Gonk gonk gonk gonk gonk gonk gonk and a few words about PS5s, discless Xboxes, ropey Capcom arcade sticks, Wuggles, laughable Game of Thrones and bland, white protagonists. Gonk.

  • Episode 144 - Cheats and Accessibility

    15/04/2019 Duración: 01h55min

    Following on from our (unfortunately truncated) conversation on Sekiro, we take another look at it from the perspective of accessibility and what we think about cheating. And ahead of the reveal of the Jedi Fallen Order, at the time of recording at least, we have brief discussion on some of the Star Wars things coming our galaxy in the not too distant future.

  • Episode 143 -Sekiro/Expectation

    01/04/2019 Duración: 01h32min

    In a sort of delicious twist of irony we even found recording our discussion of Sekiro a little too hard - a technical Gremlin caused us to lose a good chunk of the back half of our discussion! We manage to get through the news with nary a hiccup and we do have a solid chinwag regarding From Soft's latest, so it's not a complete disaster (unlike whatever the fuck that Apple Arcade arse was all about).

  • Episode 142 - Stadia Reveal

    25/03/2019 Duración: 01h32min

    It's here and it might well be the future but the big question is WHY Google decided to get in on the whole game streaming business. Did the next-gen arrive already or will Stadia be consigned to the room with all those Google glasses?

  • Episode 141 - Devil May Cry

    11/03/2019 Duración: 02h03min

    For a franchise that almost started my accident, Dante and the boys haven't done half bad for themselves... With the launch of the exceptionally well received 5th entry (in the original continuity) Harry attempts to explain the story line(s) to Simon. It's weird. But not as weird as "real doll" foot monsters.
