"On the Rampage or is it the Couch?" with Brian Colin - Original Air Date: 04.04.2019
In Season 3 Episode 13, we have a little bad luck. Our guest, Brian Colin, White Castle Hall of Fame inductee, artiste extraordinaire, and creator of the popular characters in the game RAMPAGE oversleeps and misses the first half of the show. Next, Mark has repeated disconnect issues with his Houston based internet provider.  When Brian Colin does make it to the show (right in the middle of What's in the Juke), we have a little technical difficulty bringing him in.  But! Have no fear! We've edited out most of the shenanigans to make the episode paletable.   When we finally get things on the rails, we Brian about his involvement with games like pig skin, xenophobe and Zwackery, who his inspirations and mentors were that drove him to his specific style, and we quiz him about HIS favorite games growing up. He shares how he got into the industry, what it was like working at Bally, his success with RAMPAGE, and more. Needless to say, Brian's interview turns out to be STELLAR with a promise of returning to do the show again in the very near future! Original Air Date: 04.04.2019
