Episode 108: The Game Changer

– In this episode, we rage against the gaming industry for letting three broken games get released that require fixes and patches. And we can’t seem to focus on anything else, either.

Episode 66: A Reach Around

– In this episode, we talk about how the Ouya might not be the run away hit right out of the box.  And then we talk about games and which Star Trek movies were the best and debate on whether Galaxy Quest is one of them.  Enjoy the show.

Episode 60: End of the World Show

– In the last show ever (unless the world doesn’t end), we talk about a lot of things.  We get into the gun control/video game violence not being the problem in today’s society.  We also attempt to conquer the game of the year question, and to our surprise there were very few good games this year.  Enjoy the show and I hope you live long enough to hear it!

Episode 54: No, It Happens To Everyone

– In this episode, we, the collective at Mad As Hell Gamers Radio break Godwin’s law and complete go off the rail in terms of political correctness.  We also talk about various games such as Forza Horizons.  We also completely lack any enthusiasm about the topics we covered.  Please come back and listen again.
