Episode 11: Gamebuddies Games of the Year: 2014

January 7, 2015

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.

Episode 9: Night Trap and the Formation of the ESRB

December 1, 2014

It seems so innocuous now, but a game featuring all the hallmarks of a cheesy, low-budget B-movie became part of video game history by helping spur the creation of the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Episode 6: Movies Based on Video Games

August 16, 2014

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.
