We're finding our groove in 2019 with another MOLMF genre favorite: a walking simulator! However, this one has a bit more strategy and puzzling than most of the ones we've covered in the past.

Starting off 2019 with some classic Star Wars gaming! We covered the original KOTOR a few months ago, so make sure you check that one out too. But really, just two great SW titles.

Happy holidays to everyone! Thanks for joining us for our year-end celebration episode where we count down some of our favorite moments and games throughout the year in the form of an awards show.

We've both been neck deep in western games the past few weeks, including this LucasArts classic: Outlaws--the first ever western FPS. Hope you got a chance to play it, b/c it was definitely a nostalgithon for us. Here we go...After the intro, we talk making-of and development (3:30), then talk gameplay (12:00), before getting into some unsettli ...…
 
Halloween's over but we're keeping the creepy supernatural stuff around for one more episode. This month we dove deep into the recent release, Unavowed, and it was thoroughly entertaining.

It's that time of year again: Ye Olde MOLMF Holidayspookstravaganza!!! This year we've selected a contemporary terrifying masterpiece: Doki Doki Literature Club.

We're keeping with our Star Wars theme this month and diving into one of the most highly-acclaimed RPGs of all time: Star Wars - Knights Of The Old Republic. It was a LONG GAME. No joking around, it's Baldur's Gate, but it's close, as each of us put in at least 30 hours into this thing.After a intro and development segment, we're quickly joined ...…
 
It's been awhile since we quested on the side, but we've been planning this one for awhile. We're excited to have Saffyre Falkenberg on to discuss the ethics of video games. We cover everything from the decision trees of Telltale games and light/dark side of KOTOR, to the Dragon Age approval system and if you can beat Super Mario Bros. without ...…
 
We ran into some difficulty with this pod. Experienced a few time loops...oh well. Hope they didn't make it into the final edit. Experienced a few time loops. Hope they didn't make it into the final edit. Had a blast playing this game, so get on it and play for 3-4 hours before listening. Super fun...and a bit creepy. Enjoy!Start off introducin ...…
 
That's right: MORE STAR WARS! This month we're diving deep into all things Battlefront 2 (2017 edition).

Hope you had a chance to play it too. Enjoy!Back to the classic MOLMF order this week. We start off with the background of the game and development, then ...…
 
Welcome to a very deep, dark episode of Men Of Low Moral Fiber! We're keeping things REAL this episode and don't shy away from some of the darkest themes we've ever covered in MOLMF. We really enjoyed What Remains of Edith Finch, but at the same time, the game deals with a LOT of death and heartbreak, so we went with that and kind of dove into ...…
 
We're moving onto a new operating system in this episode as we eye a whole new era of nostalgia. This time we're talking all about the N64 Star Wars classic 1996 Shadows of the Empire! The boys played this game like crazy back in the 90s and find it a treat to revisit. Hopefully you got a chance to do the same!After the intros they get into the ...…
 
We're back after a month off to bring you all one of the highest-acclaimed LucasArts games ever: Grim Fandango.

Friend of the podcast, Nick Bontrager joins the boys as Grim is one of his all-time favorites. Thanks again for joini ...…
 
Merry Holidays, everyone! We hope your gaming year was as gleeful as ours.

Thanks again for listening! Hope you have a great vac ...…
 
We finally did it! Another classic SCUMM game. Oh man, this is why we do this podcast. Hopefully you enjoyed playing Zak as well, but even if you didn't, you'll probably still get a kick out of this blast from the past. We do some quick intro information, we get into the history and making-of around the 5:45 mark, and really get into the gamepl ...…
 
It's LOOOOOM!!!! Yeah, it's a SCUMM game, but it's even weirder than any of the other ones. Don't like verbs? How about playing tunes with a distaff instead?? That's right, it's super weird. That being said, we had a blast diving into another LucasArts classic. Hopefully you did to. Enjoy!After some quick intros, we start up on the history and ...…
 
This month we're bringing you another new game!!! I know...it's weird. But we're not apologizing for it, b/c we really enjoyed this little ditty.

50 years ago today...______________________And until we get another MM sequel, go get Thimbleweed Park here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/569860/Thimbleweed_Park/By molmfpod@gmail.com (The Overthink Podcast Network).
 
Have you ever played a game you weren't sure was a game? Where there weren't any rules and no story to follow? In fact, it almost seemed more true and real than anything in your life had ever been up to that point? Yeah. That's this game. Or at least it comes close to that a few times. Anyway, we really enjoyed Everything, and we highly suggest ...…
 
Another game from this decade! Weird, right? I promise we'll get back to vintage games at some point, but for now we're playing the instant classic, Gone Home. Think Firewatch stuck in a mansion. Pretty fun, right? Well it was! We had a great time playing it, and hope you did too. This episode is pretty spoiler-heavy, and the game is pretty sho ...…
 
Got a short one for you today. Look out for the Gone Home ep dropping Friday though. What a game. Thanks again to all of our current Patreon supporters! We just wanted to spread the love to see if anyone else wanted to jump in and get some of those sweet perks and rewards that they've been receiving. For instance, for $5 a month, you'd get ever ...…
 
We're visiting another classic this month, but this time it's a game that we never played in the 90's. Somehow Full Throttle slipped through our grasp in 1995, but we're joined by a guest who fell in love with the game as a young boy. It's yet another Tim Schafer jam and we had a blast playing it. Definitely a classic game that we were sorry to ...…
 
We had a blast playing Sam & Max Hit The Road with Sean a while ago, but we didn't quite get our S&M fix, so we decided to get into our oversized fish statues and dive deep into the gator-infested world of Sam & Max. It's a deep, rich history that is much more than just video games, and we get into the beginning, the middle, and the future (?) ...…
 
We're on a Ron Gilbert kick as of late, and this month is no exception as we're playing the 2013's The Cave. Kind of a new spin on the original Maniac Mansion style game, with a much deeper philosophical spin, and about 1000 more puzzles. So yeah, that's what we did with our month. Hopefully you got to enjoy some of this game too. Let's get int ...…

No ‘90s game for us this month! Nope. This month we play the brand spanking new Thimbleweed Park! It only came out a month ago, so we’re getting on this train pretty early. From the creative minds of Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick (Maniac Mansion & Monkey Island), this kickstarted game was a blast from the past. A delight to play a new game that ...…
 
That's right! Sam and Max Hit The Road was is back! And while they haven't made that elusive "Remastered Edition" yet (maybe someday...?), we were still excited to get back into one of our childhood's biggest time wasters. Man oh man, this game is hilarious, crude, and just an overall blast to play. Hope you got to enjoy some of the gameplay th ...…

Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things. Good thing we're not Jedi (and yes, it's plural), because we this month we're all about adventure and excitement in Star Wars Battlefront. This game is GORGEOUS. And while yes, it lacked in a few areas, the sheer size of the levels and details of graphics is just insane. Hopefully ...…
 
Thanks for downloading our first ever "State of the Film" special episode! Today we're talking all about Star Wars. That's right, we cover all 9 Star Wars films, including both "Rogue One" and the recently announced "The Last Jedi" (that comes out in 9 months).

We start off with some changes to the theme song (ooooohhhhh), then after a quick intro we get into the history/making of stuff at the 4min mark, then at 22min in we get into a ...…
 
A big part of classic video game history that is often looked over is the text-based game. During Jason's last semester teaching, he assigned all of his students to write and develop a text-based game, all on their own. Out of that assignment, there were dozens of very interesting, original games, but after the students all played each other's ...…
 
We're taking a month off from gaming as we spend time with our families this holiday season, and we hope you get to do the same as you relax by the fire eating gobs of pie and candies laced with peppermint-flavored additives. And as you relax a bit, hopefully this snowy episode will warm your heart as Jason and Ben reflect on the great guests, ...…
 
If you watched Westworld, then you're probably deep into your withdrawal symptoms by now. If you can see and hear clearly enough, listening to this should help! We couldn't get enough of the show, so we decided to do a little Side Quest on it. We talk everything from Ed Harris' creepy smile to why a mother would want to bring her kid into Westw ...…
 
We take another detour from the past in this month's game and jump forward to the year 2016...even though in the game we jump back to the classic SCUMM year 1989...but yeah, we played this year's indie sensation, Firewatch. Hopefully you got a chance to play it, but if not, it's only about a 4 hour game in total, and it's riveting and interesti ...…
 
Welcome to the second part of a 2-part crossover uber-episode! We teamed up with the Electric Fancave team and did two joint podcasts, or "crossover" podcasts this week. We were lucky enough to be on this week's episode of Electric Fancave (link at bottom), and they honored us with their presence by being on our podcast. The topic for both epis ...…
 
One of the highest selling games in LucasArts history, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, is a definitely blast from the past as we return to our roots with both Indiana Jones and another classic point-and-click adventure game. After a quick intro, we get into the history of the game around 3:10, then around 16:30 we welcome in cousin and ...…
 
That's right! We're taking one last trip into the Star Wars universe in 2016 with the space simulation goodness of 1993's X-Wing. It was definitely a challenge, with some pretty epic moments along the way, and Ben and Jason and still alive to tell the tale. So strap in and sit down with your favorite beer and song and join us for this week's MO ...…
 
On this month's episode, we're talking all about Telltale Games' Game of Thrones series. We played through the game and while we loved it, be forewarned that it's a bit NSFW. Alrighty, after a quick intro, at around the 3:30 minute mark we get into the history of Telltale Games and some of the games they've made. Then at around 11:30 we chat ab ...…
 
On today's podcast, we're talking about the classic 1995 Steven Spielberg epic: The Dig. This game was awesome, but like a lot of video games, it had a few Low points that really pushed us to the Brink (get it...? Oh, you will...). Anyway, we hope you got a chance to play it, but even if you didn't, we hope you enjoy this episode! Per usual, we ...…

During our Secret of Monkey Island episode with Corrigan Vaughan, we ended up having a great conversation about some of the commentary and impact that video games have (specifically Monkey Island, but we expound outside of LA games as well), and the widespread stereotyping of characters and people groups within them.We do touch briefly on the f ...…
 
Our most anticipated game finally hits the wifi waves today: The Secret of Monkey Island. Debuting in 1990, this game still holds up as one of the greatest ever.

Hey gamers! Thanks for listening. Today we're talking all about two of our long time LucasArts favorites, Star Wars: Rebel Assault I & II.
