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.

In the most punctuated episode of Our Three Cents yet, Chris becomes an accountant, Jonathan becomes an anarchist and Minty becomes an antagonist!

Also, slammed own on the Our Three Cents round table of discussion by a Twitter fan is the matter of video game movies. Coming hot on the heels of our thoughts on Detective Pikachu, we dive into a deep dissection of literally EVERY video game cinematic adaptation ever made and those to come!

This week on Our Three Cents, sickness (rotten colds) abound with Minty and Jonathan delivering the episode from their respective death beds (not actually dying). Thankfully, Chris is on hand to bring the energy and enthusiasm, divulging some deeply personal pudding-related predilections, revealing some fascinatingly pedantic trivial tidbits, and mourning the untamed spirit of Kurt Cobain. All the while in their paracetamol-induced hazes, the chaps concoct the concept for a Super Crash Bros racing compilation! Bon.

This episode serves as an endearing study of friendship, co-operation and stories about caves! With Tetris fever still rife in the Our Three Cents camp - will the boys be able to stay focused enough to recount their 87th favourite video games of all time? Sort of. But really not.

Number 88 - Worms Armageddon, Life is Strange, Pokémon Rumble World

In a jam-packed episode this week, we have our first repeat entry - the chaps are more riddled with Worms than ever before! In a surprising video game industry twist, Tetris is the suddenly the most revolutionary title on the market again - life really is strange! And whilst Minty plays with his suspiciously-designed pocket monsters, Jonathan explains why Blowfish Studio’s Minesweeper Genius is better than Red Dead Redemption 2! Discuss.
