A very Co-operative Christmas
It's Christmas and we're back after a short break. We talk all of the many announcements of the past few weeks, and get into our favorite games of 2018. Not to mention what we've been playing these past three weeks.

About last night
It's the week of November 11 and we've got games to discuss! We talk more Red Dead, Into the Breach, The Quiet Man, and Diablo III on Switch. If that's not enough we give you the scoop on all the reveals at Blizzcon and X018 with just enough time left over to talk about how exhausted we both are.

2018 Halloween Spooktacular
Happy Halloween or Day of the Dead, I suppose. After a brief hiatus we return to talk Red Dead 2, Tiny Barbarian, more on Megaman X, and Castlevania on Netflix. Don't let the title mislead you, we've all but forgotten it's Halloween.

Wakanda Forever

Nintendo Update: Please Stop
We're late this week, sorry about that. We talk Tomb Raider, Telltale, the new PlayStation mini, the sorry state of Nintendo's online service and we explore the horrors of the internet to learn just what a "Bowsette" is.

The Sun is in our hands
It's the week of August 26, 2018. We talk about the history of Wario, games that rubbed us the wrong way on a first play, and the latest in news. Eric is playing Mercenary Kings and I'm revisiting Shenmue, it's been a weird week.

The life and death of Luigi Mario

Rabbids are "cool"
Another two weeks has come and gone so we recap our gaming habits for the week. Everything from Octopath Traveler to some good old Donkey Kong. We discuss Dead Space 4, a game that will never exist, and end things with talk of those special games we can always come back to. • All music is the original work of Ed Baquet: https://soundcloud.com/emfb-music-1

Everything that happened at E3 2018
E3 is over and there's a whole lot to talk about. Microsoft steals the show with a rather lackluster showing from EA. Nintendo dedicates 20 minutes to Smash and surprises like Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 2 remake pull our attention. Apologies for the lackluster audio, new mics are on the way!

E3 2018
It's almost E3! The biggest show for video games, it's also our very first episode so we've got a lot to cover. We talk about some Castlevania successors, Detroit: Become Human and our expectations and hopes for this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. News is leaking like a sinking ship this week so I'm sure we already sound like idiots!
