Re-Play Radio (For Now) Episode 35: The Fourth Inaugural Completely Meaningless Video Game Awards, or "The Goaties"


Continuing their annual tradition of doing only one podcast a year, Steve and Bryan return with a hefty, two hour-plus chunk o' audio goodness as they pick apart the highlights, the lowlights, and the side-eyes of the year that was 2013 in video gaming. Thrill to the discussion of which games had the best moments in badassery, the greatest production values, the most interesting stories, the best uses of Aerosmith! Look on in awe as the boys dare to challenge the prevailing media and community narratives surrounding The Last of Us! Cower in fear if you haven't played all the games you wanted to finish because there are a lot of spoilers in here! Will the boys agree on 2014's best game? Will there be hurt feelings? Will the term "ludonarrative dissonance" be used? You'll have to find out by downloading it here.

Re-Play Radio Episode 33: Mass Effective

Re-Play Radio returns with a whole lot of Mass Effect. First it's an update on Skylanders, Simpsons: Tapped Out, and Journey in What Else. Then we have a spoiler-heavy conversation about Mass Effect 2, after Bryan sped through the game like a champ. Finally, Steve gripes about people spoiling Mass Effect 3 in the Rant, which gives way to general paired ranting about internet entitlement.

Plus, Mordin! You must listen.

Re-Play Radio Episode 32: Sonic Wonderfall

Re-Play Radio speeds back with a whole lot of blue hedgehog. First it's What Else with talk of Skylanders, Gotham City Impostors, Soul Calibur V, and more. Then, it's a Sonic double-shot as we use Sonic CD to spin-dash our way into talking about Sonic Generations. Finally, Bryan gives a you what-for with a lesson in why Nintendo shouldn't pursue the iPhone market.

We also talk quite a bit about the Golden Corral's "Chocolate Wonderfall." Look, it was a weird night, and you should probably just listen.

Re-Play Radio Episode 29: The Ladies Call Him Sly

A new Re-Play Radio, you say? Surely that can't be right. That show ended when Steve became a rich humor magnate, and Bryan was eaten by that giant wildebeast. But no, it's true. Bryan escaped from the wildebeast belly and Steve lost all his money betting on underground dragon races, so the two got together again to record another podcast. So now you have to sit there and listen to it.

The duo cover such thrilling topics as iPad gaming, Bulletstorm, Tiny Tower, Bastion, and Duke Nukem Forever in What Else. Then it's on to Sly Cooper, which more-or-less morphed into a larger discussion about the series, and then about furries. Finally, Steve ditches his pre-planned Rant notes to talk about happenings with the 3DS price drop.

All that and ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL are just a download away.
