Re-Play Radio (For Now) Episode 35: The Fourth Inaugural Completely Meaningless Video Game Awards, or “The Goaties”

 

Continuing their annual tradition of doing only one podcast a year, Steve and Bryan return with a hefty, two hour-plus chunk o’ audio goodness as they pick apart the highlights, the lowlights, and the side-eyes of the year that was 2013 in video gaming. Thrill to the discussion of which games had the best moments in badassery, the greatest production values, the most interesting stories, the best uses of Aerosmith! Look on in awe as the boys dare to challenge the prevailing media and community narratives surrounding The Last of Us! Cower in fear if you haven’t played all the games you wanted to finish because there are a lot of spoilers in here! Will the boys agree on 2014’s best game? Will there be hurt feelings? Will the term “ludonarrative dissonance” be used? You’ll have to find out by downloading it here.

Bryan and Steve sit down to talk about the best, worst, and indifferent games of 2012 in the Third Inaugural Completely Meaningless Re-Play Radio Video Game Awards! This year’s categories include Best Story, Best Badassery, an impromptu Best Twist category, Best Multiplayer, and more, as well as console and platform-specific nods for the best each of the major platforms had to offer. What game will climb, battered and triumphant, above all others to win our Game of the Year? If you have been paying any attention to us at all on Twitter it will not really be much of a surprise.

Geekspeak Supplemental #16: We’ll Damn Sure Avenge It

http://captainbloggington.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/the-avengers-team-image-jpeg-cropped-proto-filmcritic_reviews___entry_default1.jpg

This week, long-time friend of Geekspeak Brian Swafford stops by to chat with Bryan about Marvel’s superhero magnum opus The Avengers, which Bryan already reviewed for some Web site if you want to read that while you listen. Find out if this movie was worth the time, money, and…you know what? No pretense. We basically spend 90 minutes  talking about how awesome it was and why it was so awesome. So if you like talking about awesome things, you’ll like this. But make sure you only listen AFTER you’ve seen the movie because SPOILERS ARE PLENTIFUL AND WE BASICALLY RUIN MOST OF THE MOVIE. With that caveat out of the way, hear two guys take an overly academic approach to a movie about dudes in tights by clicking here.
