Episode 145: Good to be Rogue

– In the latest episode, we change formats slightly and instead of reading the news, we just cover topics.  The topics for this show were about Nintendo and who they are attempting to be at this time and if they can compete with Microsoft and Sony in the console space and do they want to compete with them.  We also list our most anticipated games of 2017 and briefly discuss Project Scorpio.  Then we talk about Carrie Fisher and her unfortunate death over the holiday followed by her mother, Debbie Reynolds passing away the next day.  And finally, we have a long spoiler filled discussion of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Episode 144: Sh!t-Storm

– The group of three host for this show didn’t even remotely come close to being on topic this episode.  This year has pretty much sucked for gaming, like much of the rest of the year, and the show is starting to reflect that.

Episode 136: Fractured Butthole

– In this episode, we tried, and tried to get a full recap of E3.  But it wasn’t in the cards for this show.  First, we had a devastating thunderstorm that knocked out power 30 minutes into the show.  We got the Xbox presser covered, but everything else had to be covered later.  The second show the next Tuesday covered the rest of E3, but the software that we used to record, DIDN’T RECORD!  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?!?!  So, I bring to you the only part that we managed to get.
