    Writing on GamesCast Ep.137 - Oh That New Cowboy Bebop's Out

    2:59:28

    We're back after a month of Nico's life basically exploding! Hamish has been subjecting himself to the live action Cowboy Bebop and it is rough. Joe Pera Talks With You is the most earnest show on TV. Limp Bizkit Still Sucks. Shin Megami Tensei V seems to be very good at what it does even though the Switch can't handle it. Forza Horizon 5 is exactly the same as Forza Horizon 4 with even more shite patter, and it's one of the best games of the year. The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Definitive Edition is the kind of mess that's hard to even comprehend. Nico chops lemons. Call of Duty Vanguard thinks you are the dumbest piece of sh*t on the planet. Putting Never Meant on a mixtape and learning every System of a Down song on guitar to impress girls in high school. Inscryption is weird and cool and we can't really talk about it for spoiler reasons. Reach up and grab a bean! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.136 - FINISH IT

    3:31:37

    It's been a while since the last podcast and there are a ton of games we should probably be discussing, so of course we spend the equivalent of a feature-length film talking about, well... feature-length films and TV shows we've watched. Why Nico was so disappointed by The Many Saints of Newark (as well as Hamish's first full foray into The Sopranos), Spider-Men both Raimi and Recent, Jackass 3D because of course we have to talk about Jackass some more, why Pig is amazing and Nicolas Cage is a fantastic actor, 12 Angry Men's send up of people who don't like sports, Al Pacino going mental in Glengarry Glen Ross, the fraught relationship between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, and Norm Macdonald's comedic legacy.  Oh, I guess we also talk about Deathloop's mediocrity, why Planescape Torment might be Nico's new favourite game, dismantling a car as you're taking The Long Drive in it, the Dread X Collection, and a lengthy reflection on being confronted by the people who made a thing you've criticised.  Don't worry, the soundboard is still here too! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.135 - They Call Me Modem Man

    2:56:30

    The Ol' Gamin' Geezers are back to talk about... wait, actually, we do talk about games this time! Hamish beat Lost Judgment, so we have finally got an episode out on time to talk about something pre-release! Nico talks about WarioWare: Get it Together!, has finally started playing Bloodborne properly, as well as "some game made by some guy," Rift Wizard. Skatebird is wildly disappointing in every way except for the actual birds (don't worry, Nico took notes) and I Am Fish is kind of exactly what you expect. We reflect on Bitbusters, discuss the entire Matrix series in detail and make it clear we have not learned our lesson with the dumb sound effects. We would apologise, but we find it too funny. Hope you enjoy our King Diamond impressions! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.134 - I Put the Screw in the Eva

    2:30:34

    There's a new Evangelion movie out, and Hamish has been collecting Japanese gangster blu-rays. Somehow in all the Takehsi Kitano talk we manage to narrowly avoid another hour-long segment dedicated to Fast and Furious, but only just. Twelve Minutes is so stupid that trying to explain it gives Hamish hiccups (spoiler warning from 1:15:30 to 1:42:30 approx). Lotta Yakuza: Like a Dragon talk. Nico has played Lego: Builder's Journey, and has some thoughts on that Quake remaster. Oh, also Hamish got his soundboard working again. Sorry in advance.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.133 - What Do You Meme?

    2:11:14

    Apologies for the shorter episode today—we were both delirious with the heat and the fact that we started late because we were laughing about stuff off mic. Oh, also we don't talk much about games at all this episode. Why do you listen to us again? Instead we discuss seagull infestation, our pal you don't know, Nico watching all the Fast and Furious films, that Jackass 4 trailer (and the unfortunate fate of our long-talked-about Jackass podcast, at least for now), the unexpected career twists and turns of the Dudesons, Gundam games, and how people talking about art nowadays drives us into deep despair. This was a fun one. He was a crumb of a boy. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.132 - Life is Un-DARE

    3:02:39

    The soundboard was messing up Hamish's audio, so Nico has to pick up the chaotic slack—don't worry, it's still a mess. After an hour talking about the Fast and Furious films, awful Marvel TV shows and IGN reviews of old Simpsons games (let's just say the wellbeing of developers is a *remarkably* recent consideration in the public eye), we actually talk about some stuff we've been playing! Hamish got an Xbox and Nico has been playing a bunch of Game Pass games—Forza Horizon 4, Descenders and, uh... Dungeons and Dragons Dark Alliance. Lego Builder's Journey is maybe the closest a game has come to legitimate photorealism, while Cruelty Squad looks like a complete nightmare (but might actually be game of the year). Oh also Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart is a great tech demo and a fantastic game... for kids. Shame should hang like a... actually nah, I'm not going to do the IGN thing.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.131 - Happy 5th Birthday, Writing on GamesCast!

    3:31:10

    You read that right, we've somehow been doing this podcast for half a decade, and to celebrate, not only are we doing our traditional E3 roundup (breaking down all the big reveals from Microsoft and Bethesda, Nintendo, Square Enix and... Intellivision?!) but we also have a wealth of special guests—including Patrick Stewart, Peter Griffin, Homer Simpson and Winnie the Pooh! Thank you all so much for supporting us for so long!  (also, we only became aware in the editing stage that the audio quality of Hambo's side of the recording was pretty shaky for some reason, with numerous pops and scratches. Rather than record the entire three and a half hours all over again, we figured we'd post it anyway. Apologies for the dip, we've found the source of the problem and it will be fixed for next time) --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.130 - A Mess

    2:51:42

    We're both just... so sorry. Some new games came out! Resident Evil Village, Pokemon Snap, Nier Replicant Ver.1.22474487139... (with spoiler talk at 1:32:34), Returnal, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and discussion about Hitman 3! We do discuss these things, we promise. It's just on you to do some digging to find it in amongst the complete and utter chaos of our new soundboard obsession. We promise we'll have more restraint next episode. Baby in a zoo. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.129 - Rockin' Knockers

    2:40:15

    You know the drill by now—nothing new released, so we talk for a frankly weird amount of time about Shaun Ryder's various projects, including one with an ocarina player and questionable album cover. Nico has played nothing and Hamish has been streaming! He dives deep into all things Oddworld, which has put Soulstorm in a new light. He also got a bunch of people to buy Bad Guys at School—making this podcast the biggest advertising drive the game has had. Together BnB is both underwhelming and ridiculously entertaining. The duo get upsettingly deep into the world of early 2000s softcore porn parody films. RIP Prince Philip!  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

    Writing on GamesCast Ep.128 - A Great Pog Day

    2:45:37

    Daft politicians are on Cameo now and it turned Nico into the Joker. Video games! The spirit of OG Prince of Persia is alive and well in Oddworld Soulstorm, Genesis Noir is a fantastic animated movie that they shouldn't have slapped a bad game on top of, Narita Boy is a game that looks better than it plays but goddamn it looks good, Nico finally finished Deadly Premonition 2 and is still slogging through Yakuza Like a Dragon. Also certain speedrun communities have the worst patter, neither of us has seen the Snyder Cut and our lives are better for it, we explore the daft games Hamish has been sent via Keymailer, and a conversation about Wacky Races takes... one of the wildest turns we've had on the podcast in quite some time. I gotta tell you, The Big Chungus sends his regaaaards. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support
