  1. Your Uncle’s Beach House 43: Rebuild of Evangelion

    Evangelion is over. It's time to talk about the Rebuild movies! We've eschewed our usual summaries just to have a broad conversation about the movies, especially the just released finale. The third and final end of Evangelion. If you've done your homework and watched all the movies please enjoy us reckoning with the final conclusion to this series we all used to care about, long ago, in a different time.

  3. Disco Elysium

    We wake up in a nightmare of runaway neo-liberal capitalism and find ourselves wondering where the potential of Communist revolution is, and then we have to record a podcast about detective RPG Disco Elysium! In this lengthy conversation, we cover everything about what it means to make a world and say things through art, and whether Harry and Kim can ever truly find peace in such a broken world.

    We are heavily indebted to the Waypoint Radio spoiler-cast over Disco Elysium for covering much of the game in advance and making our job easier in terms of getting into the weeds. We say so in the episode, but please listen to their podcast ideally before you listen to ours, as we reference it from time to time.

  4. How ‘Blaseball’ Fans Help Create the Game They Love

    Bored during the pandemic? Maybe you should try betting fake money on a league of simulated baseball teams where imaginary players like Jessica Telephone and Jaylen Hotdogfingers are regularly incinerated, undergo life-altering surgeries, and become … encased in giant peanut shells?

    Welcome to "Blaseball," the absurdist browser-based game that has captured thousands of imaginations and spawned an obsessive fandom that creates art, backstories, podcasts, multi-verse wikis, and even music about the events that transpire on the simulated field — which is then incorporated into the game itself.

    Alli and Jen talk with Felix Kramer, a member of the "Blaseball" development team, as well as Elliot Trinidad and Bria Davis, two volunteer "groundskeepers" who manage the game's rocketing community. They discuss what makes "Blaseball" so special, why the fandom is radically different than those around scripted entertainment, and their plans for the new season in 2021.

  5. ABNORMAL MAPPING 105: KENTUCKY ROUTE ZERO

    This month we discuss a game that has been coming out as long as we’ve been doing this podcast as we head down the Zero to discover what awaits us in the great american indie game and its sprawling nightmare of decayed capitalism. This turned out to be one of the most difficult games we’ve ever covered, but I also think it resulted in one of our best discussions. Please enjoy!

  6. Men of Lower Fiber #54: Paradise Killer

    It’s our December game!!! Hope this helps bring some warmth to your holiday season and Jason welcomes on Renata Price, games critic formerly of Fanbyte who somehow enjoyed Paradise Killer even more than Jason. It’s a real love fest. Hope you were able to play! (Unlike lazybones Corrigan and sluggard Ben)

    After the introduction they get into the development (9:00) then dive fully into gameplay and spoilers not long after that (13:45). After LOTS of high level PK talk, they bring it back down to play a lovely round of “What’s The Drink? What’s The Song?” (60:00). Then Ben joins for a few minutes (67:00) where they talk about a few Black developers that are doing some amazing work, as well what our next game is, coming to you the first Friday in February 2021!

    Thanks again to Ren for joining the pod and please stay tuned for our HOLIDAY SPECIAL out next week!

    As always, you can find the podcast in these places:

    iTunes: https://goo.gl/ddhs94 Android: http://goo.gl/oibiSt Stitcher: http://goo.gl/VTFQLM

    Notes Jason’s drink was a tequila sunrise and his song was “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” by R.E.M. Ren’s drink was a weird, custom, colorful Starbucks Frappuccino, but made by a hipster in a liminal space and her songs were: “Death Spiral” by Dirty Projectors “I Know the End” by Phoebe Bridgers “You Missed My Heart”, also by Phoebe Bridgers

  7. Episode 5.1 - Kentucky Route Zero: Act I - Act IV

    It’s taken just over 7 years, but Kentucky Route Zero is finally complete.

    As a game that blends point-and-click adventures, community theater,

    magical realism, modern folk tales, a little bit of Southern Gothic, and a

    whole lot of horses, it was destined to be a game that I was destined to

    love. For this episode, I got Luke and Ashley to join me in a far more

    in-depth exploration than I was initially planning. Needless to say, both

    Part 1 and Part 2 will be cock full of spoilers, so if you’re at all

    interested in playing the game for yourself, you have my most enthusiastic

    recommendation to do so.
