Episode 92 - Boredom Setting In

With regular guest Lee joining the boys last minute for a video chat this week, Episode 92 is less of a focussed podcast and more of a two hour recording as the lads ramble on and on and on.

Much discussion was had about past, present and future Assassin's Creed with the announcement of the viking flavoured next entry. Johns been playing with trains, Brooker has been playing with time and Lee has been playing... Everything.

Join us in a couple of weeks for our latest co-op challenge exploits!

Episode 91 - The Struggle is Real

A bumper edition to keep you going during lockdown...

Elsewhere, Brooker is struggling to finish Doom, Lee is struggling to justify an Animal Crossing purchase and John is struggling to stay awake!

Episode 90 - Isolation

Quarantine may be getting to your usually delightful hosts this week. John has sunk hours into a game that ISN'T Football Manager and... AND... Brooker is singing AND playing games.

What the hell is going on?

Episode 89 - Characters Locked Up

Yup. In the midst of a country-wide lockdown, the boys have still managed to get together and find stuff to talk about.

Regular guest Lee Loveridge joins John and Brooker to chat about Left 4 Dead 2, the guys' latest entry on their 2020 co-op challenge. As well as talking about Ori and the Will of the Wisp, the Vanquish remaster, Doom Eternal and why money probably shouldn't ever be spent on the latest Assassin's Creed game!

Will being cooped up in their houses drive the lads crazy? Were they already crazy? Why the hell are they singing Safety Dance?

Episode 88 - Netflix and Films

Movies, movies, movies.

Brooker has been away watching movies, but managed to squeeze in a cheeky 20 hours to play some XCom.

While John got into Call of Duty's new Battle Royale mode and The Witcher.

Episode 87 - Asking For An Angry Friend

Once again we welcome our favourite co-op partner Lee Loveridge to the podcast to wax lyrical on his choice of CU Co-Op challenge game for the month of February.

So come listen to the guys chat about Gunfire's Remnant and a whole host of other games as well as a surprise angry rant that DIDN'T come from Brooker.

Join us...

Episode 86 - Feeling The Need

Welcome to another short, sweet, and only half game filled episode of the podcast.

At least we're slightly better at keeping on track this week and we get to the games a bit quicker. You know, after the Apple talk.

Episode 85 - A Little Bit of Everything

This is getting daft now.

With little in the way to talk about news wise, the early part of this episode went around all the subjects imaginable. 

From WWE Wrestling, to local concerts and loads in between. It doesn't get better when new of the log delayed Uncharted film sends one of the hosts off on a film rant!

Still, there were games to talk about. Ashes Cricket, Rugby 20, Kakarot and What Remains of Edith Finch.
