Black Panther

Matt, Brian and Bill get together and talk about what they've been playing. Matt is figuring out that the only game that holds any meaning for him is The Witcher 3, Brian is playing Starcraft and working too hard (possibly related) and Bill is getting schooled on Fire Emblem Warriors by his son. We then dive into Black Panther, going over what we liked and didn't.

Game of the Year 2017

Another year, another GOTY award for Rocket League. This time the Switch version claims the honors, and it might be the best version yet. The whole crew joins in as we discuss the year's biggest story lines and our favorite games from the past year.

The Last Jedi

Brain, Matt and Bill get together to discuss their thoughts on The Last Jedi. What they liked, what they didn't like, Brian's love of dad humor and overuse of pronouns. Much like The Last Jedi, this episode probably could've used better editing.

A Very Final Fantasy Christmas

Final Fantasy celebrated it's 30th anniversary recently and we decided to talk more about the franchise that inspired a generation of fans and nostalgia that has been subsequently sacrificed at the high resolution alter. Matt also pontificates on how there will almost certainly be no repercussions from Net Neutrality being overturned (segment brought to you by Comcast). We wrap up with the games that all of us should've played but only some of us have.

Blizzcon, Japan, and Super Mario Odyssey

In this episode, we wonder if Battlefront-gate is just the beginning and if micro-transactions and FTP style content are the new normal. Brandin recaps Blizzcon 2017 and Matt recounts searching for sailors in Yokosuka for some reason. Brian goes on a journey in Super Mario and we discuss the IGN staff walkout and generally men being awful because it's a day ending in Y.

Another Final Fantasy Episode

Matt, Brandin and Bill have a wide ranging discussion about the news from the past couple of weeks - from the shooting in Las Vegas to the President taking on the NFL owners.  We chat a bit about Unsung Story, Divinity II, why Brandin still plays Counterstrike and then dive into the Noclip documentary on Final Fantasy VIX.

PAX West 2017

We survived another year of PAX!  Brian, Matt and Bill are joined by the ever sensuous Brandin as they dicuss what games they played, meandered by, and saw the line for and said forget it.  In addition, Matt is not alone in his Witcher obession, he was joined by an entire theater full of people in one of the best panels ever since it's about one of the best games ever.

Summer Musings

The Absolute Boys of Summer check in with what they've been playing. Bill tells more dad stories and concedes his son is better at games, Matt can't stop talking about Final Fantasy, and Brian has quit his day job to become a Walking Simulator Curator. They also recap some of the latest game industry scandals before scolding Matt for not seeing Spider-Man.

E3 2017

It that wonderful time of the year again where everyone gets overly excited about five minute trailers for games they're already going to buy!  But before we dive into E3, we discuss how Fire Emblem Echoes is the Fire Emblem we all need.  After that we go over the major happenings at E3.

What Remains of Edith Finch

Listen in as Matt, Brian and Bill discuss Prey, the latest Fire Emblem and go indepth with their thoughts on What Remains of Edith Finch and how good narratives in games matter.
