We're channeling our best Michael Pachter and giving you a glimpse into the gaming future in 2015. Will Microsoft put the smack down on Sony? Will Nintendo release Zelda Wii U? Will indie developers run out of ideas? Will the Gamebuddies podcast continue? Tune in to hear us make a bunch of wild speculations we can't possibly back up.
You've probably heard other video game podcasts already give their "Games of the Year" for 2014, but we've been putting this off until 2015 because we needed the new year to refresh our energy so we could hash it out in the studio. What does that mean? Well, it means this episode starts off like a typical podcast and quickly devolves into Mike trolling everyone in the room. It's PANDEMONIUM. It's CHAOS. It's the Gamebuddies 2014 GAMES OF THE YEAR.
JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. Enjoy our free-form discussion about our favorite Playstation games and the console's legacy. Spoilers: there are a lot of JRPGs on our list. We also talk about what we're playing, the inaugural Playstation Now, the Game Awards, the new Zelda Wii U footage, and why the Cardigans named their second (first?) album after a pretty good racing game. Happy holidays!
For every console exclusive blockbuster, there are a handful of titles that get overlooked. We discuss a few hidden gems that we think you might have missed that are totally worth your time. We also talk about what we've been playing, whether or not DLC is a rip-off and Call of Spacey, bro. You know. The usual stuff.
Hey there buddies, It's that time again to listen to: Ali, Mike, Austin and Matt talk about VIDEOGAMES! Specifically, we talk about Destiny, Shadow of Mordor and Borderlands 2, and for the main course, we talk about how we have changed as people who play games and how games have changed –– at least, we try to do that.
There was a time when movies based on video games were a sure thing in Hollywood. But with flop after flop like Super Mario Bros. and Double Dragon, studio executives became more cautious about adapting blockbuster games to the big screen. Still, the occasional box office smash like Tomb Raider and Resident Evil proved that a movie based on a video game IP could be successful –– and even watchable. Join Mike, Matt, Austin and Ali as we discuss the cinematic masterpieces of our time and the future of projects still in limbo.
Summer is here! And with it comes a drought of new releases.

We're back! Join Mike, Matt, Austin and Ali as we catch up in this long overdue episode. In just under three hours we talk about the games we've been playing, grade each E3 press conference and talk about our most anticipated games of 2015.
