Dana and Cody are joined by special guest (and Cody’s roommate) Michael Parr to talk about the best and worst games of 2018 — and what’s on the horizon for 2019.
We sneak in one last 2018 game before our Game of the Year episode: The delightful indie platformer Celeste from Matt Makes Games.
We dive into one of Dana’s favorite games, Kingdom Hearts II. Cody loses the plot, Dana has a bone to pick with Pirates of the Caribbean and they both think Mickey Mouse saying “Xehanort” is hilarious.
Cody and Dana couldn’t wait for the full game to release, so they went ahead and did an episode on the demo for Toby Fox’s next game, Deltarune.
Dana and Cody may be landlubbers, but that didn’t stop them from loving Lucas Pope’s seafaring adventure, Return of the Obra Dinn.
Cody and Dana step into the fog once again to tackle Silent Hill 2.
Dana and Cody brave the foggy streets of Silent Hill and find that it has more scares than you’d expect from a 20-year-old game.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider wants to take the franchise to a more complex, dark and “woke” place to wrap up the new trilogy. It faceplants straight into problematic, melodramatic and cliche territory instead.
The second of our vacation mini episodes! The topic this time: The return of PlayStation and Nintendo 64-styled graphics to gaming.
To tide everyone over until our next full episode on Aug. 30, we have two special mini episodes lined up this week and next. The topic this time: Bad games that we won't subject each other to for the sake of podcasting.
Dana and Cody sail the drained seas with Okomotive's delightful first game, FAR: Lone Sails.
Minor spoilers since it's a pretty short game, but we keep the ending under wraps.
In case you missed it in the episode, we're going to be on vacation soon, so no full episode until Aug. 30 (not sure what game yet, but we'll keep you posted). BUT, we'll have shorter mini episodes lined up in the meantime.
Cody and Dana jump through the doorway into the minds of Tim Schafer and Erik Wolpaw with Double Fine’s Psychonauts.
Cody and Dana take a look back at one of the more successful video game franchise reboots — Tomb Raider (2013).
Spoilers begin at 26:00. Next episode: Quadrilateral Cowboy (2016).
Dana and Cody play the most ambitious crossover event in history — no, it's not Avengers, it's Kingdom Hearts. We dive deep into the history and circumstances around the first installment in this behemoth of a franchise.
