Alden's Amazing Roblox Review, Episode 27 - Natural Disaster Survival + Epic Mini Games
I was trying to figure out some Roblox games that Alden's friend Srihan (who doesn't play video games... he's more into nature) could play with him.  So, we fell back on some of the classics Alden used to play when he was much younger. So, we're featuring both Natural Disaster Survival and the newly redesigned Epic Mini Games. Btw, I neglected to turn on both microphones, so you'll hear me and Srihan talking in the background very softly.  You'll also hear Alden's voice easily pierce your ears at different intervals, but that's a kid for you. :) Hope you enjoy it!

AARR #25 - Blox Hunt
My son often looks at what his Roblox friends are playing to get started with new games.  Blox Hunt was one of them.  It's an interesting approach to a hide-and-seek game, where you can disguise yourself as an object (and run around when you get caught as one). Besides defining what a hider and a seeker was (over and over and over again), we did manage to both be seekers at the same time.  Were we able to find all the hiders before time expired?  You'll have to watch to find out. :) ----- For reference, here's everything we know about the game: Video Promo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9bZmgPJ258 Roblox Game Website - https://web.roblox.com/games/70005410/Blox-Hunt-v2-7-3 ----- If you'd like to subscribe to our video stream of this podcast, you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/Zj7v8vtrAzM Feel free to leave your thoughts and game suggestions for us in the comments.  (We do read them, and might feature them on a future recording.)

AARR #24 - Deathrun
Here's another favorite of Alden's that he's been playing a lot of... Deathrun.  Since I'm terrible at the game, I spend more time describing the waiting area than I do the actual gameplay. All the same, he shows no mercy when he's the trap master, and almost survives a solo performance towards the end.  Hope you enjoy it. :) ----- If you'd like to check out our new YouTube channel, you can go here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzlNzZHvs_dYw5tbPPHm4g/ Feel free to leave your thoughts and game suggestions for us.  (We do read them, and might feature them on a future recording.)

AARR #23 - Legends of Speed
We're finally on YouTube!   While our podcast has been going on for about a half a year, we finally made the transition to streaming video.  But man, those files are gigantic to upload. You can view our new channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzlNzZHvs_dYw5tbPPHm4g Anyway, we get into Legends of Speed... a really fun game with a lot of easy game play and dynamics that keep it interesting.  My son is still playing it at the time of this upload.  I think he's at Level 78 or something. Enjoy the video! PS - My son wants to give a shoutout to FGTEEV, though I don't think they care much. :) ----- Feel free to leave your thoughts and game suggestions for us in the comments.

AARR #22 - Broken Bones IV
From last week's nightmarish experience with the Zomboss slide, we totally lose it and keep playing the highly addictive Broken Bones IV.  Some of it is explaining the game, while the rest of it is marveling how our Roblox characters crush and break nearly every ligament and bone in their bodies.  Hope you enjoy it. :)

AARR #21 - 💀-Dr.Zombie's Slime Slide-💀
Not too long ago, a glitchy but very humorous game was on Roblox.  The physics were off, things would crash and break apart without warning, and many of the vehicles were usable at best.  All in all, we had a blast playing it. Fast forward to this week, and the original authors of Dr. Zombie's Slime Slide have corrected a lot of those glitches.  While Alden and I enjoyed revisiting the game, it didn't have that same sort of glitchy magic we were looking for.  In fact, this is the first game where we can't remotely recommend anyone trying it. But hey, form your own opinion and try it here: https://web.roblox.com/games/214277763/Dr-Zombies-Slime-Slide --- As always, thanks for listening, and give us a decent rating and review on iTunes and Spotify.  We do read them, and wait till we have critical mass before showcasing them on a future episode.   Enjoy your week. :)

AARR #20 - Balloon Simulator
This is easily the longest podcast we've every recorded, all for a single game.  Balloon Simulator was a Roblox game we explored at length, with color commentary from Alden all the way through.   It's worth noting that Alden eventually became a godzillionaire after just playing the game for two days. Hope you enjoy the podcast!

AARR #19 - Alden's Friend Review (featuring Srihan K.)
We're back for a series of brand new episodes of Alden's Amazing Roblox Review!  But, before we get into the games, Alden had his good friend Srihan K. over who was visiting from Richardson, Texas. Alden and Srihan talk about Srihan's favorite activities, his love for karate, the kind of food and drinks he likes, and other topics.  We also get into Alden's recent eye injury and talking about garden plants.    It's a variety of topics for our first time back.  Hope you enjoy it.

AARR #18 - Speed Race
We were off for a week (it was Daddy's fault), and we're back with Speed Race.  It's a bit of a deceptive game, where it rewards you with speed but you'll likely finish if you take your time.  It's breakneck pace was pretty fun to play, and it was monetized to the max.  It was kind of sad. Bonus is that you hear Alden meowing like a cat for no particular reason, and a new ranking for games in the form of grunts.   ----- If you have feedback on the show or would like to suggest a game, leave a comment or write to spiderbird@yahoo.com.  Thanks for listening!

AARR #17 - Reading Your iTunes Reviews
We're taking a break from reviewing Roblox games to find out what y'all have been writing about us on iTunes.  Most of you have been very kind, but the majority of the reviews left us wondering.  We do appreciate the honesty though! Feel free to leave reviews in the future, and we'll be more than happy to include them in a future podcast, be they bad or good.  It's just fun to hear what others have to say. Have a good week!

AARR #16 - Hole.IO
WHAT??!?  Not a Roblox game??? Yep, we're going off the reservation and showcasing a simple online game that we've gotten quite good at.  It's Hole-IO, where you basically have everything fall into you for points.  As mentioned on the podcast, find the parks, swallow the smaller buildings within the first minute, and you're set to dominate. If you have future game recommendations for us to review, you can send your suggestions to robert@dallasdesignsprints.com. Thanks for listening!

AARR #15 - Boulder Simulator
Have you ever played a Roblox game that blatantly defies the laws of physics?  Well, probably all of them.  But THIS one allows you to control a cubical boulder that grabs skyscrapers, moon landers, bridges and smash other boulders.  That's right, it's Boulder Simulator. Alden and I have been playing this game for a few months.  Pro Tip:  Once you can get to the Moon to get your "m's", do it.  You level up much faster and there's less competition. Hope you enjoy the show!

AARR #14 - Car Crushers 2
Alden and I give Car Crushers 2 a go, and mostly end up trying to crash into one another by the time all was said and done.  There was a lot to explore, and I think we may have gotten to a small percentage of what the game had in it. Overall, this was a very well done game... but hardly anyone to play with anywhere.  Need to make those billion dollar vehicles more accessible than they are today me thinks.

AARR #13 - Sprinting Simulator
While uploading this episode to start the new year, I just discovered that Roblox took this particular game offline for review.  So you can't play it, and you'll have to suffer my person explaining the details of the game.  The only redeeming part of this podcast is when my son somehow jettisons me off the world a couple of times. All the same, welcome back... and enjoy the show. :)

AARR - Happy Holidays! See you in 2019!
I couldn’t peel away Alden from playing his Nintendo Switch with his friend from next door. So, here’s a quick 2 minute segment wishing you and yours a happy holiday.

AARR #12 - Billionaire Simulator
It's Sunday morning, and we just finished eating the blueberry pancakes we made for brunch. While I'm cleaning up, I hear him yell "DAD I'M A BILLIONAIRE!!!", along with a lot of singing and chanting. I roll up with my computer, and we both end up recording our first impressions of Billionaire Simulator. In case you ever play this game in the future, remember... always get a store manager. Alden will be shouting this at you while you play, even when he's asleep at night.

AARR #11 - Blox Adventures
We're taking it live again with Blox Adventures, a stylistic looking obby game where the breathtaking graphics are probably lost on my son. The thing he's fixated on is how to get down those darnfalnaggled fan shafts without breaking apart 30+ times. I tried those out too and was getting equally frustrated. So we do a relatively light overview of the game without too much depth. I will say that the shadow trail and trainer ball is infinitely annoying. Seriously, how can someone figure out where they're going in an obby when their path is obscured. Btw, that's Dad complaining. Alden's still trying to get past the air shaft.

AARR Ep010 - Work at a Pizza Place
Alden was seriously having issues paying attention to the podcast while playing "Work at a Pizza Place". It's probably the most edited version of the podcast to date. We're going to have to figure out how to get his attention so he doesn't zone into moving virtual boxes into pizza supply delivery trucks. There's always hope next episode.

AARR Ep09 - Slimeulator
We're back after a two week holiday break (that's the official version... truth is we taped a couple of shows but Alden wasn't into it). We're busting out with Slimulator, another variation of Bee Swarm, Pet Simulator, etc type of game. Alden will make sure you understand every person on the leaderboard in the game. In fact, he goes through literally everything he sees while playing the game (which seems to jog his memory better).

AARR Ep08 - Speed Run
Alden and I are sick with seasonal colds. If you can make it through hearing sniffles, coughing and the grossness of wiping boogers on the couch, you'll enjoy this one.

AARR Ep07 - Minecraft? (Feat. Zoe)
Alden invited his friend Zoe onto the podcast and we ended up talking about her favorite game Minecraft. Yep, it's not a Roblox game, but the cute factor is off the charts on this short one. I type short, because it looks like I have a short in either a microphone, cable, or audio intake device. Going to have to investigate before our next episode. Enjoy this one in the meantime!

AARR Ep06 - Hide and Seek Extreme
With a failed recording at hand, Alden and Daddy had to improvise to get this episode out the door. The end result was a recording session over vegetable soup, talking about Hide and Seek Extreme. We even recorded bonus footage of a fart beat. Yeah, we were being silly.

AARR Ep05 - Flood Escape (Live)
Since the first version of Flood Escape still has appeal AND gets a considerable amount of traffic to this day, Alden decided to feature it in another live podcast. He drifts a bit on this one, so his review will probably be a bit spacey. Enjoy!

October 15, 2018
AARR Ep04 - Flood Escape 2 (Live)
We're experimenting with this episode and having Alden talk about Flood Escape 2 while he's playing it. He's a little distracted at times, but a lot more animated. This is also a fart-free episode, for once.

AARR Ep03 - Epic Minigames
In this episode, Alden reviews one of the originals of Roblox gaming madness - Epic Minigames. We cover our favorite maps, how we work as a team, and more farting. Also, there's a secret that he doesn't want his mom to know about in this episode. Keep it between us, okay?

EP02 - Pet Simulator
My son's heavy deep into Pet Simulator on Roblox. GravyCatman's to blame (partly), but he's been having a lot of fun with it. We talk about how Alden's been helping me out as a noob, and other aspects of the game he likes. Also, farts.

EP01 - Bee Swarm
In our very first episode of Alden's Amazing Roblox Review, Daddy interviews Alden on Bee Swarm. The good, the bad, the informational. I might try to interview him during a game next time. :)
