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.

Re-Play Radio Episode 34: Someone Else Might Have Gotten It Wrong

walking-dead-1

Just over 9 months after our last episode, the new Re-Play Radio is live! 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.

Download the show here.
