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


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…

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!

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.

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!)

Tangential Recreation 1×03 – Everybody Hates Quan Chi

youtubeMatt and Richard take to the sands of the arena, using Mortal Kombat (2011 – not 2009 as Matt keeps saying!) as a backdrop whilst they discuss (amongst other things) The Witcher 3, female character models, Dragon Age and the (not so) recent debacle of AAA games being released in an unplayable state. Meanwhile, the duo kick-off a prank war of attrition which is bound to end in death. Or at the very least embarrassment.

15 Minutes of Pain 26 – Dragon Spooge

youtubeGrab a bottle of Rolling Rock, slip on your white shirt and armour up with a pocket protector – Matt may not be famous enough to have any fan games based on his exploits, but as luck would have it there IS a game based on another YouTuber who gets ranty and sweary whilst he plays terrible games. Will Angry Video Game Nerd  Adventures be a wry satire of the awful fodder that forms James Rolfe’s playlist? Or is it just as bad as the titles it lampoons?

15 Minutes of Pain 25 – I Did A Splat

youtubeMatt turns to his bloated Steam library – replete to bursting with games he can’t remember buying, and which he’s beginning to think are breeding – and finds indie BASE jumping simulator AaAaAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. It’s a good job that he’s trained Richard Cobbett on Viscera Cleanup Detail, because it’s going to need one hell of a janitor to clean up this mess. And what’s with the puppet?

Tangential Recreation 1×01 (Pilot Episode) – HOW MANY MOONS?

youtubeIs it a podcast? Is it a Let’s Play? Why not both? Matt is joined by the inimitable Richard Cobbett for the first in a new series that shamelessly/lovingly (delete as applicable) rips off GeekPlanetOnline’s very own Tangential Deviation podcast! Two men, one co-op game and one conversation left to ramble for about an hour. What will they talk about? Where will the conversation end up? And who will end up battered to death with bits of dead Elf?

15 Minutes of Pain 24 – Tea & Jeopardy

youtubeHe’s failed at surgery. He’s failed at making toast. He’s failed at being a goat, a suicidal pig and a drunken security guard. But now Matt faces his greatest challenge yet – a challenge which will take all of his skill, wit and co-ordination. Mr. Ted craves tea and biccies, and there’s only one hapless hero who can provide them: welcome to the hell of Tea Party Simulator.

15 Minutes of Pain 16 – I’m In Pig Hell

youtubeMatt’s had an interesting week full of technical fail – but when the going gets tough, the tough head on to Steam and find a game that costs £0.09! And so witness, dear viewer, as your cordial host gets to grips with a porcine death wish in the most frustrating level design since I Am Bread with Android puzzle conversion Squishy The Suicidal Pig. On the plus side, however… a new Corpsey!

15 Minutes of Pain 13 – Sweet Baby Jesus, Save Me

youtubeMatt bows to public demand, risking both his nerves and his clean underpants, and delves once more into the world of horror gaming. The challenge makes Slenderman’s woods practically comforting; our hapless hero must journey into the terrifying containment cell of a creature known only as SCP-087-B, his only goal to get as far into the labyrinthine maze as possible. Can he pull it off in his usual stoic manner? Or will he receive complaints about shattered eardrums?

15 Minutes of Pain 10 – Slendy’s Gonna Get Me

youtubeIf you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise… because Matt’s left behind a pair of incredibly full underpants. Yes, like a masochistic court jester he’s decided to do something incredibly unpleasant to himself in the name of entertainment and play his first horror game – the infamous creepypasta-influenced “Slender: The Eight Pages”. Will he bravely face down the terrifying Slenderman and collect the eight journal pages that assure his freedom? Or will he dissolve into a blubbering, whimpering mess and shatter your eardrums with his surprisingly high-pitched screams? Probably the former, right?

15 Minutes of Pain 09 – Nobody Said That There Would Be Spiders

youtubeMatt tumbles head-first into surreal cartoon wilderness survival game Don’t Starve. Can he possibly live to see the dawn of another day without supplies, without tools, without shelter and – perhaps more importantly – without a volleyball with which to create a suave and witty companion? Or is he destined to be eaten in the dark by a Grue? One thing’s for certain: as survivalists go he’s less Bear Grylls and more Burt Gummer (but without the guns).

15 Minutes of Pain 05 – Copyright Nightmare

youtubeWhat’s the one thing better than a zombie game? A zombie game loaded with a ridiculous number of mods! Matt resumes his war against the legions of the undead with Left 4 Dead 2, and this time (thankfully) Clements’ diseased colon is nowhere in sight; instead, however, he has to rely on Deadpool’s shoddy aim, capture the Master Sword and endure the unmitigated terror of the Cookie Monster. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get slapped with a stupendous lawsuit…

15 Minutes of Pain 00 (Pilot) – It Never Gets Any Easier

youtube15 Minutes of Pain
: one game, one clueless gamer, no instruction manual and only fifteen minutes to figure out what’s going on! In the pilot episode, Matt attempts open heart surgery with a bare minimum of knowledge, a complete absence of training and patience and all the steadiness of a neck massager on a roller-coaster as he attempts to get to grips with Surgeon Simulator. What could possibly go wrong?
