Graham and Steve explore the potential pitfalls of digital ownership rights in the wake of Sony closing their legacy platforms’ storefronts. They also riff on monster fights, the Mortal Kombat movies, being a Viking, and much, much more.
Some format changes and some scheduling tweaks are incoming for the boys this week! Talk of digital pricing, awful fans, and Australia’s classification system largely dominates discussion, but there’s still room for 400 vocalists, Godzilla, and ‘live’ Amazon purchases as well!
In an episode bitten the technical issues bug, the boys look at Outriders, being a space idiot, and one of the worst movies humanity has ever created (as well as Steve’s plan to fall farther down the hole of terrible movies) Also: Microsoft now owns Bethesda, the fiasco around The Sinking City, politics in Fallujah, and the next Must Listen of 2021!
The boys are back for another year! But before jumping into 2020 proper, they first need to handle all of the business of Game of the Year! Check out all of the best that 2019 had to offer, and the deliberations to arrive at those decisions!

In the penultimate episode for 2019, Graham and Steve talk about how they’re getting ready for GOTY by checks notes playing games from 4 years ago! Besides that, there’s also talk of The Outer Worlds, acquisitions, Valve’s hardware business, Stadia issues (again…), and plenty more!
As we move towards the end of 2019, the news well is starting to run dry, but fear not: the boys will always find something to talk about! This week, news on Stadia’s disappointing launch, a new Half-Life game, The Game Awards nominees, and first impressions on Disney+!
Finally, a slow news week! But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t things to talk about. No, no, no! This week, there’s more Outer Worlds talk, plus shaky streams, Graham’s uncertainty towards Death Stranding, collusion, and plenty more!
Another week, and another swathe of news to discuss! That’s right! Games news in November! This week, Graham and Steve are curious about Blizzcon, EA games going back to Steam, what’s happening in The Outer Worlds, and so much more!
