If someone doesn’t know what popping and locking is, how do you show them? Steve wants to know. If you play video games around your kids, how do you hide your competitive ugliness? Jason wants to know. And everyone wants to know the best creative curses to utilize when the children are around.

What’ll it take to make Jason pay for a Patreon? A cool Irish name. What’ll it take for Steve to get excited to go to space? A spike-covered dark god who needs killing. What’ll it take for Jason to brave the darkest of all possible dungeons? Putting it on his Vita. What’ll it take for Steve to finally appreciate his family? Turning on permadeath.
We start off with the newest Mario game coming straight to a device probably currently in your pocket, then try to figure out who the new half generation of consoles is for. After that we learn that Steve used to think robots were normal and that his kids try to win his love by opening chests. By the way, Jason killed all the Pokemon.
We’ve mined our brains to craft this video games podcast just for you! We start this first episode with a very laid back discussion of No Man’s Sky and how it really makes us wish there were more Lakitus in the world. Then, it’s on to Titanfall 2 and the future of branding in video games. If you’re craving buffalo wings and sugary soda after you listen, we’ve done our job well.

When you have a random week, your podcast follows suit. True to form, the guys chat about the wise teachings of Bob’s Burgers, Jason’s involvement in the recent Splatoon Global Testfire (not a fart joke, sorry), and Steve using Mortal Kombat X to come to terms with a life-long fear of Freddy Krueger.
In the second segment, it’s time to get serious and focused, with topics like the return of Robot Pirates and Atland, and what they mean to the webcomics landscape together. Also, there is an infinite canvas comic out now (The Boat) that you must see to believe. After the outro, Steve owns up to his selfish ice cream consumption and the guys invent the flash mob tandem cropdust (that is a fart joke, also sorry).
