December 12th, 2015 | 38 mins 4 secs
Is it great when two solo projects somehow give insight on the original collaboration? That's what we have here as The Stanley Parable is split into Head and Heart versus HaHa.
Episode 48: The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth
November 28th, 2015 | 44 mins 54 secs
Edmund doesn't fuck around with new content. Each time he's decided to update this game, it's been delightful and voluminous. Listen to Nick and Gary explain what the expansion brings, why it's neat and why you should Check It Out!

Nick Glauber and Gary Butterfield, "Get off my dick about Undertale."
Episode 46: Shadowrun Hong Kong
October 3rd, 2015 | 35 mins 46 secs
Nick and Gary hack into Shadowrun: Hong Kong. It's slightly worse than Dragonfall but that's like saying 9 dollars is slightly worse than 10 dollars. You should definitely play this one. As a quick admin note, we're going on a brief hiatus while Gary deal
Episode 45: Super Time Force Ultra / Sonic Dreams Collection
September 12th, 2015 | 35 mins 41 secs

August 29th, 2015 | 30 mins 6 secs
Nick and Gary get Fingered, then take on Rocket League. Two games marked by their simplicity but so different in terms of depth.
Episode 43: Her Story / Guild of Dungeoneering
August 1st, 2015 | 27 mins 56 secs
A narrative heavy game with a very original interface and a deck building roguelike hybrid this week. Big ups to both! Note: the devs for Guild of Dungeoneering gave us review copies.
Episode 42: Towerall: Ascension / Duck Game
July 18th, 2015 | 24 mins 57 secs
Couch co-op is not dead so put away your thinkpiece! Nick and Gary and Brayton play some Towerfall and Duck Game. Check out www.youtube.com/watchoutforfireballs for video!
Episode 41: You Must Build a Boat / Ridiculous Fishing / TAS-100
July 4th, 2015 | 34 mins 40 secs
It's a triple feature! Nick was kind enough not to make me play TIS-100. So, it's filthy casual game chat for a while before Nick talks about the newest entry in his niche of niches.
Episode 40: Pillars of Eternity
June 20th, 2015 | 49 mins 36 secs
The years of golden CRPG gaming continue with this amazing Kickstarter offering. Nick and Gary finally weigh in on Pillars of Eternity and, fuck yes, is it special.

Episode 38: Infinifactory / Nuclear Throne
May 16th, 2015 | 29 mins 55 secs
Nick and Gary get mutated with Nuclear Throne and throw our brains against Infinifactory. These two games are neither A) Dark or B) Despised! Hooray! Nick and Gary take a crack at Infinifactory and Nuclear Throne.
Episode 37: Tower of Guns / Roundabout
May 2nd, 2015 | 33 mins 41 secs
Nick and Gary examine some games from yesteryear, literally. It's a break from our grimdark leanings and crankiness from last episode, though not without some crank.
Episode 36: A Good Snowman is Hard to Build / Jazzpunk
April 18th, 2015 | 26 mins 16 secs
Nick and Gary roll up on A Good Snowman is Hard to Build and Jazzpunk. It's hard to find a pair of games that left us so "meh" but here we are. Listen for details.
