Number 69 - Street Racer, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 3D Blast

Number 69 - Street Racer, Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 3D Blast

Three more games. 
And good ones at that!

Punch your mates (or your AI mates if you find yourself riding solo) in an early competitor to Super Mario Kart with Minty, zip around as an Opossum who finds itself adorned recklessly with a rocket propulsion system atop its back with Chris, and look quizzical at Sonic's roughshod attempt at an isometric adventure game with Jonathan.

Additionally, enjoy a discussion on veritable hot potatoes: videogame violence, uncouth youth, and digital literacy; some extremely late to the party views on Playdead's Inside; the perils of Kickstarter funded independent games; and technobabble that fuelled the 16-bit console wars!

And all of that within a spritely 32 minutes?! YES!

Bonus Level - Summer Special

Bonus Level - Summer Special

Take shelter from the UK's unseasonably warm start to the summer, by allowing the cool, soothing tones of three doofi (doofus; plural) talk sunny, bright weather and sunny, bright games.

Find a comfy spot in the garden, crack open a fizzy pop, then injure your neck as you twist to best utilise the sun's searing rays to illuminate your Gameboy's monochrome screen, sharing all the while in the summer gaming memories of three young men who could probably do with getting outside a bit more.

Football! Progressive rock! Balance boards! Family holidays! It's all here. As well as, of course, the usual nerdy discussion on games past, present and future that we assume you all harbour an insatiable taste for.

BLUE SKIES FOREVER

Number 71 - Banjo-Kazooie, Sonic & Knuckles, Sid Meier's Pirates!

Number 71 - Banjo-Kazooie, Sonic & Knuckles, Sid Meier's Pirates!

Marvel as three ostensibly sober adults appear inebriated through sheer early 30s tiredness, as the boys discuss their 71st favourite videogames of all time.

Let Minty sleepily teach you why Banjo Kazooie a particular treat for the neurodiverse. Allow Jonathan to elucidate you on the echidna, and reflect on how accurately Sonic & Knuckles portrays this egg-laying mammal. Finally, let Chris refresh your GCSE English skills by recalling the difference between the definite and indefinite article in a tangential aside when discussing Sid Meier's Pirates.

Games, eh?

Number 74 - Terraria, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Creatures 2

Number 74 - Terraria, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Creatures 2

In our most disparate trio of games yet, our three gamers discuss their 74th favourite video games of all time! Elsewhere, voyeurism, a sad fat man, a little red fella and a multitude of hats collide in our weekly video game chat! Oh, and Jonathan destroys Minty’s precious childhood memory. Whoops.
