Tangential Recreation 1×17 – I Don’t Even Know What Borscht Is

/var/www/gpo podcasts/wordpress/onemorego/wp content/uploads/2015/11/gpo004 omg feed flash

Whilst Richard is off doing important journalisty-type-things Matt is joined by the now-infamous indie developer Resulka to play Dead Island and drag the ongoing conversation from “puppets in abusive relationships” to “highly trained snakes”. Can her antipodal charm bring a touch of class to the proceedings? Or will it just be a mess of crude…

Tangential Recreation 1×16 – Resulka Is Still A Brazen Hussy

/var/www/gpo podcasts/wordpress/onemorego/wp content/uploads/2015/09/gpo004 omg 1x16 feed flash

Megadrive co-op classic Toejam & Earl provides the backdrop as Matt & Rich pull the weighty corpse of conversation from “why we shouldn’t be taught Shakespeare” to “puppets in abusive relationships”. Along the way Richard manages to to inspire the episode title with his insistence on being libellous and topical, and Matt displays blind optimism…

Tangential Recreation 1×11 – Itchy S**t Fingers (UnEpic, PC)

omg_feed_flash

Richard gets creative with his cursing – as in  literally “invoking an evil fate upon another” as opposed to harsh language – whilst Matt resorts to damning with faint praise as the duo tackle this week’s moving wallpaper – Francisco Téllez de Meneses’ platforming tabletop RPG simulator UnEpic – whilst dragging the ongoing conversation from…

GUEST SPOT! The Richard Perspective

Untitled-2

Over on The Richard Perspective YouTube channel Matt guests on the Game & Watch show, providing (slightly bemused) commentary on painfully bad edutainment adventure game Mean City. Dive into Frank Miller’s Lazy Town! Learn English! Find out what the Weasley family does with their squibs! Avoid the chicken!

15 Minutes of Pain 30 – I want a DEEP FRIED FISHY

youtubeMatt has impressive tackle and a sturdy rod, but he always fails to impress with tiddlers. But enough about his personal life, because there are far more amusing ways to put his dignity on the line, like making him play the PC conversion of Sega Bass Fishing – an old Dreamcast game which required a motion sensor – using a standard controller. Hooray for Humble Bundles!

NOBODY LIKES YOU, OWL! – Drunk Horror Episode 2 (One Night At Flumpty’s 2, PC)

youtube“If your light’s turned off then you’re safe (Or are you?)! If your lights are on, then they’ll come find you and rip you a brand new face!”

Three sheets to the wind and with no idea what’s going on, a very sweary and terrified Matt revisits a yolksy nightmare as, armed only with his diminished wits and a bottle of reasonably-priced tequila, he faces off against the twisty Flumpty Dumpty in spoof-sequel One Night At Flumpty’s 2.

Tangential Recreation 1×08 – Still Chasin’ Chitlins, Whiskey and Skirt

youtubeThis week’s tangent starts Matt and Rich at “Whingeing man-children on the internet” – which prompts discussion of the recent drama over at Reddit – before slouching, like a chimpanzee riding on a series of segues, towards “considering canon” by way of Shovel Knight praise, overlooked games, the Austrian Oak and a debate on the preservation of gaming history.

15 Minutes of Pain 28 – Taste My Dead Dog! (Spelunky – PS4)

youtubeMatt pops on his fedora (the official adventuring kind, not the OK Cupid douchebag kind), straps on his trusty whip and lights a torch to go exploring in some procedurally-generated catacombs. Riches (loose change), fame (everything’s trying to kill him) and an epic adventure (everything succeeds in killing him) are all for the taking as 15 Minutes of Pain encounters the instantly-classic Spelunky!

One More Go 5×12 – E3 Special Part 1

omg_5_1400_e3_2015

Matt is joined by The Black Dog Podcast’s Lee Medcalf and a returning Aaron Darlington to discuss some of the news and trailers coming out of the 2015 E3 show in Los Angeles. In this first episode the trio talk Fallout 4, the dangers of Excel spreadsheets, the perils of preordering from Game UK and…

I Want To Believe – Gone Home Episode 1

youtubeMatt explores a seemingly abandoned family mansion with darkened rooms and even darker secrets in Gone Home, an interactive story which uses a video game interface as its medium. Where is the Greenbriar family? Why is their new home empty, apparently ransacked? And just what is it that the protagonist’s little sister doesn’t want her to find? (WARNING! This is a complete playthrough: spoilers are ahead!)

One More Go 5×11 – Highs of Arcadia

One More Go Cover Art Season 5 300x300

The Unbreakable Kimmy Hallam returns from her sickbed – proving that females are indeed strong as hell – and rejoins Matt to talk about growing up with coin-op games. Nostalgia abounds as the pair discuss the cabinets, the games, the weird and wonderful hardware, the roar of the arcade and the smell of the crowd.
