  4. If you want weird games, the developers at Usaya have you covered. One of their most prized creations stars a young woman who encounters a freakish monster that can only loosely be considered a horse, but possesses the head of a man. It also happens to be a dating simulator (with quite a few microtransactions). Fittingly, Usaya titled their strange, horrific creation, "My Horse Prince." It has amassed something of an underground cult following as an oddity on mobile devices, and, hey, we even prominently featured My Horse Prince in an article about Usaya a while back. While not even remotely one of the best games of all-time, its profound weirdness at least deserves a look. With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode.

  6. The gang tries to recover after a robbery gone wrong.

  8. Released a year and some change ago, Dream Daddy aimed to offer the world a wholesome experience that combined the drama of raising a teenager with the romance of dating a number of conveniently available dads. With the backing of the Game Grumps and solid writing that deftly navigated around stereotypes and exploitation, the game stood apart from the typical dating sims. Now that the wave of enthusiasm has died down, a second look at this friendly and colorful visual novel is more than warranted. Can a dating sim be considered one of the best games of all-time? And, if so, does Dream Daddy reach those lofty heights? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.

  10. It's the beginning of August and Tabletop Appreciation Weekend awaits us later this month. For the past few weeks, I wracked my brain to try and figure out a good way to kick off the lead up to the weekend we all come together as gamers over all things tabletop gaming related. Then I realized that I was being silly; I already had the perfect way to do that up my sleeve, and I had been working on it since last year with a small group of collaborators. That project is We Wanted Adventurers, a liveplay Dungeons & Dragons podcast. A liveplay podcast follows an unscripted recording of a traditional tabletop roleplaying game, with all of the goofs and drama that comes with the territory. The show follows a motley trio of unlikely heroes as they bumble into adventures both big and small across the fantastical continent of Nevarrone. I take on the role of the Dungeon Master, or DM, acting as the omniscient narrator of events and agent of fate over the fictional events within the game. Extra Life contributor Marcus Stewart takes on the role of Sean Valjean, a bard trying to rekindle his love of music. Kevin plays Arakiel, a barbarian wanderer born with a cursed fate. Finally, Alex appears as Pribi, a feared pirate captain who lost everything when his ship sank to the bottom of the sea. The adventure begins as a bard, a pirate, and a barbarian wander into the coastal city of Faragos.... It took a long time to put all the pieces together, but we can finally reveal the show to the world! The first two episodes are available now and new episodes will be released every week for the foreseeable future. You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and (soon) iTunes. You can follow the show on Twitter, too. Let us know what you think of the show!

  12. Guitar Hero released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2, quickly becoming a phenomenon that spawned years of plastic guitar shredding. With a slick, novelty controller and a punk art style, the plucky title became a party attraction everyone could enjoy.

  14. The PlayStation 2 title that blended the magics of Disney and Final Fantasy into one crazy package, Kingdom Hearts captured the imaginations of a generation of gamers with a smorgasbord of previously unthinkable crossovers the likes of which had never been seen in video games before. The action-RPG, though regarded by many as a classic now, was conceived of as a big gamble that Disney and Square were only willing to take because of the ailing finances of their respective companies. Now, more years than many would care to admit later, the third official installment of the series seems to be on the brink of release. So we have to ask.... Does the original Kingdom Hearts hold up as one of the best games of all-time?

  16. We're going all the way back to the arcade heydays of video games this week! In 1980, Pac-Man became one of the biggest games of all-time. It consumed billions of quarters, caused the music and film industries to view video games as genuine competition, and paved the way for its strange successor. Ms. Pac-Man technically improved on Pac-Man in almost every respect and offered gamers the first playable woman in gaming history. It also has one of the oddest development origins. While many might put Pac-Man as one of the best games of all-time, can the same be said for Ms. Pac-Man?

    E3 2018 - Day 3

    E3 2018 was a wild ride, to be sure. Last year, we brought you audio and video recaps of each day we spent at the show. This year, we tried to do that, but ran into some technical hurdles that made video impractical and audio tricky. We still recorded our impressions of the show each day, but we couldn't upload them to share with all of you... until now! We weren't able to upload our discussions recapping the reveals and experiences of E3 due to technical difficulties. However, we persevered and made the episodes anyway. Our third episode features Jack Gardner, Naomi Lugo, Marcus Stewart, and Zak Wojnar discussing the second day on the show floor.

  20. Released during the height of Prequel Mania (which was a thing before they came out and reality set in), Star Wars Episode I: Racer quickly became one of the best selling sci-fi racing games of all-time. Racer managed to translate one of the most memorable scenes in the prequel films into a game full of a worlds never before seen in Star Wars, the thrill of speed, and plenty of flaming/exploding podracer engines. It might not have aged from its N64 days, but at the very least it's worthy of an honorable mention. With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode. Outro music: Final Fantasy VII 'Cosmo' by MkVaff (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03750) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!

  24. It has been long requested and finally done: The Life Is Strange episode is here! Naomi and Jack dive into all things Life Is Strange, from the theories to the story and how meaningful it can be, warts and all. Dontnod, the creators of Remember Me and the recently released Vampyr, really did well with their sophomore effort - did they do well enough to make a game that transcends greatness to be considered one of the best games of all-time? Play it, listen to the show, and judge for yourself. Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
