Episode 40 – The Rental Service Episode

Part of the fun in not planning a strict episode script is seeing where conversations will take you, and feeling free to follow them as far as they’ll go. What starts out as a brief mention about Megan finishing up Suikoden and beginning Legend of Dragoon turns into a discussion about turn-based battle systems with reflex rewards, renting games repeatedly, then covering all manner of rental services: video games, movies, and even Legos! We slip in an overview of Riot Games’ first board game Mechs vs Minions, but honestly (and strangely,) this episode is mostly about rental services.

(Unfortunately, SwagBucks is no longer offering the $10 moneymaker deal for a 2-month Gamefly subscription. But we’ll let you know if it ever returns!)

Episode 20 – The illustrious digbickqt scootin’ stallions

It’s a misnomer to call us a gaming podcast. We know that no one listens to us for gaming news, they listen because we’re entertaining and have great chemistry. Case in point:¬†we’re in the middle of E3, but talk about it for only a minute at the start and end of the episode. We’d rather talk about:

  • Megan buying KCON NY tickets while sitting at a red light;
  • Yungoos looking like Donald Trump;
  • playing Final Fantasy Explorers > KCON sponsorship > Ticketmaster sponsorship > Donald Trump sponsorship;
  • how Megan is so easily convinced to keep her cable subscription;
  • the awkward decline of E3
