The Cobbett returns for a new challenge – namely creating sprite-art for randomly generated video games in Minecraft! But rather than whistle while they work, the dynamic duo have one of their traditional rambling chats, taking the conversation from “highly trained snakes” to “terrible PC game mods”.
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!
Matt and Rich kick-start the conversation with “video games on the tip of your tongue” and end with “whingeing man-children on the internet”. Along the way the stumble over the likes of The Toxic Avenger, The Shitting Owl of Badon Hill, crude pre-teen game customisation and the idiocy of bigotry. 60 minutes on the clock; let the rambling begin!
Matt and Rich return to the Realm of Tangents and get knee-deep in the dead! The original Doom provides the backdrop as the pair discuss (amongst other things) DLC nightmares, real-life Pip-Boys, the oeuvre of Mr. George Lucas, the unfortunate comedy of the Doom spin-off novels and why in retrospect Ghostbusters is a very dodgy movie indeed.
Is 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?
