Apologies in advance. Chamberlain and Chance are quite powerful, almost mystically so, but they could not prevent storms in Alex's vicinity from stealing his internets prior to the completion of this episode. Enjoy your time with him while you can, as he is still enjoying his time with Yakuza Like a Dragon. Chamberlain finished Soul Hackers 2 (spoi…
 
It is true that there is very little new to play at the moment, but there were certainly a lot of videos of games that we will play in the future. Hopefully. Nintendo, Sony, Ubisoft and Capcom of all companies released a ton of information. If you love farming sims, Nintendo is there for you, along with some Zelda game. Ubisoft is making *gasp* mor…
 
Chamberlain is excited! Someone on the internet, this time is was Crystal Dynamic, said the words 'Legacy of Kain.' This is more than enough to create false hope that will be surely be crushed. He knows this, does not care, and is hiding in Soul Hackers 2 to avoid any further questions. Alex remains firmly ensconced in Destiny 2. The fine, fine Bun…
 
Many months ago Alex fell in love with Inscryption. Chamberlain played it and did not, because he often times dislikes good things. Chance promised that, should Inscryption ever come out on console, he would purchase it. Once again, Alex was right. Chamberlain was at least smart enough to stop playing Saints Row, so he has that going for him. And A…
 
GamesCom Live has come and gone, and if you were smart you did not watch it, opting for the trailers that were conveniently uploaded shortly thereafter. In them we learned that Dead Island 2 is a real game, that The Callisto Protocol may not be everything we hoped and that Where Winds Meet will directly support the Chinese government, but what are …
 
Good lord, this is two days late. Just push it out and maybe no one will notice. They certainly won't be aware of Chamberlain's absence, as Chance and Alex are more than up to the task of filling in his usual contribution. Complain about something, be old, whine a bit, and done. Episode in the can. No if only someone else had access to the podcast …
 
Did you know it was possible to be entertained without pushing buttons? Chance spent most of his weekend exploring this strange, voyeuristic world with Prey, Sandman and Final Boss before returning to the fold of controllers with Red Dead Redemption 2 and Overwatch. Alex spent money on Destiny 2 and that means he is damn well going to play it and C…
 
Apologies in advance for this meandering episode, there is just not that much to talk about in the game world right now. Chance is still replaying Red Dead Redemption 2 and thinks that maybe, just maybe, he was a little too mean to it the first time around. Chamberlain got into a drunken fight with Live a Live, kicked it to the curb, and instead is…
 
Chamberlain, Chance and Alex talk about cats! Not Stray, we covered that last week, this is the story of a stray cat and his misadventures. Far less importantly, games were played. Alex is doing God's work with his PS5 by finally playing through Spider-Man Miles Morales. Chance started a new character in Elden Ring, swearing it would be different t…
 
This week we learn that pressing circle to meow, when coupled with an interesting if well worn post-humanity story, is more than enough to keep Chamberlain invested in a game. The cat shenanigans of Stray are not enough for Chance. He requires more to be amused, like sticking people with pulse bombs in a new game, or sticking people with pulse bomb…
 
No one is immune to the relapse. Alex is back and has returned to Elden Ring, playing a build that he had previously called boring. Chance took a few moments away from the Overwatch 2 beta and put some time into God of War to make sure that he was still in the mood for Ragnarök, and he most certainly is. And Chamberlain spent money that was origina…
 
We have all been waiting for news on God of War Ragnarök, and we got it, sort of: a release date and 30 seconds of trailer. Chance was so upset by this that he had a bad day in the Overwatch 2 beta before realizing that changing the frame rate settings made things unplayable for him. Chamberlain was so upset by this that we walked away from a medio…
 
It's Cuphead day, a day celebrated only by Chamberlain! Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course has arrived and has wasted no time reminding Chamberlain that he is not actually good at videogames, he just plays a lot of them. Alex is still lost in No Man's Sky, as it offers a cosmic respite from the dumpster fire of current events. And Chance is wreakin…
 
Chamberlain and Chance have both played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder's revenge! One of them appreciated the shallow, kiddy pool approach and reveled in the nostalgia of arcade days long past. The other was disgusted by its lack of depth and character progression, giving up before finishing. Basically Chamberlain enjoyed the game for what i…
 
You aren't going to believe this (I almost didn't) but Chance did not play Elden Ring this past week. This does not mean that he is never going to play Elden Ring again, but he did flit about between a whole bunch of other titles, ending up on Grand Theft Auto V, of all things. Alex uses the almighty power of his PS5 to play Touchlight II again and…
 
Chamberlain, Chance and Alex decide to collectively ignore terrible rumors about a very important game that is still VERY MUCH COMING OUT IN 2022 and instead go over the blasé mediocrity that was this year's Summer Game Fest - the not quite the Keighley's but still lots of world premiers, only mostly games that no one cares about. And Callisto Prot…
 
You can blame Time Warner for our missed week (ask Alex, he will be back next time). Lots to catch up on, especially the Sony State of Play. Callisto Protocol is coming out this year! Street Fighter 6 really exists and actually looks good! Stray is coming out in a few weeks! PSVR2 fails to impress! The first salvo of not-E3 season has been fired an…
 
Apologies to all his fans, but Alex is not here this week. He is busy making, as the kids say, fat stacks. Instead you have two old men talking about games! How enthralling. Chance is still playing Elden Ring, making a reputation for himself as a savior and helper. And Chamberlain finished up Rogue Legacy 2, the new LEGO Star Wars and Trek to Yomi.…
 
What you have here is the rarest of Chamberlain Chance and Alex episodes. It is a episode to be treasured, put up on a shelf, and listened to only on the most special of occasions. To do so more often would not diminish its specialness, but it would make just about anything else you do in life much less enjoyable. Appreciate the majesty of Alex hav…
 
Fear not! After a week's forced hiatus Chamberlain, Chance and Alex have returned! Chance is no longer playing Elden Ring, he is living Elden Ring, having taken up residence in a specific area and assisting any and all who summon him. Bonus internet points to any listener who gets him in to a game. Alex has returned to Mass Effect Andromeda and is …
 
Chamberlain here. It is with all seriousness that I must place a trigger warning on the first twenty or so minutes of this week's episode. Not for us being crude, or using bad language or me having bad opinions, because those things all do happen and we are unironically proud of all of them. No, real life intrudes on my friend Chance, and Alex and …
 
Chance would like to make it VERY CLEAR that he did not noy enjoy invading other players' games in Elden Ring. He killed them, honorably of course, just to see how it felt. It felt hollow, so he returned to the hero role. Alex has gotten past the boring part of Tiny Tina's Wonderland, the game, and found the best part, the endgame. And Chamberlain …
 
Chamberlain returns and work has been done, at least work in video games, which totally counts as work. Grid Legends, Kentucky Route Zero, the excellent Young Souls and the Tiny Tina vehicle that really is just Borderlands with the thinnest possible coat of fantasy spread on top. Sorry Alex, it's just Borderlands again. Chance is here, because he i…
 
The title is a true statement that cannot be refuted. This does not necessarily mean that everyone loves Tiny Tina, but they should. Also this week, Chamberlain is missing (he was in Nashville and avoided the Grand Old Opry for reasons), Chance and Alex play a little more Elden Ring and no one gets slapped. Sorry to dash your hopes on that one.…
 
Chamberlain returns! In his absence he finished Horizon Forbidden West, which he doesn't spoil anything about, and played Infernax, a nifty little indie that is the perfect after dinner mint to sixty plus hours of machine slaying. Chance and Alex? They are still playing Elden Ring, but they both made time in their schedule to watch Turning Red, so …
 
Chance and Alex love Elden Ring so much that they decide to marry it. Invitations will be sent out. Gifts will be registered for. A hall will be rented. And once the guests arrive and the music begins to play Elden Ring will leave them at the alter, crushing their dreams, with nothing but a 'git gud' as it passes the church doors. They will of cour…
 
You already know how this episode is going to go. Chamberlain is playing Horizon Forbidden West, is enjoying it, but has a few nit picky complaints. Surprise, he also managed to play 30 minutes of Elden Ring! No surprise, he hated it with ever fiber of his being. Chance and Alex stand in solidarity, naming Elden Ring as a potential game of the year…
 
Chance has declared in Elden Ring Eve, though he is having so much fun with Horizon Forbidden West that he almost feels bad about putting it down. For now. He will come back to it eventually, for sure. Chamberlain does not celebrate Elden Ring Eve for he is of a different faith, one that celebrates mediocrity and jank, meaning that he still hasn't …
 
There is comfort to be found in jank, especially eurojank, an ersatz genre that Chamberlain has an ill advised fondness for. So he is still playing Edge if Eternity. In spite of its terrible crafting, bad voice acting, simple combat and general JRPG bloat he is having a good time and refuses to hear reason. Chance gave up Chamberlain's taste in gam…
 
For the first time in many, many months Chamberlain, Chance and Alex are all playing the same thing at the same time: Dying Light 2. Or at least they were. Chamberlain uninstalled the game in disgust at around the hour and a half mark because of, well, reasons that make sense to him and no one else. He then ran home to a eurojank JRPG. Alex has che…
 
At time of recording Dying Light 2 was mere hours from launch and our heroes deal with the stress in different ways. Alex, being of sound mind and body, bought his fiancé a Switch so she can play Animal Crossing and then passed the time by looking at free games on the Epic Game Store. Chance, being of sound mind but not as sound a body, continues t…
 
Chamberlin is here. He voice isn't but he is physically behind the mic. He suffered through the hushed whispers of Chorus to find the pretty good space shooter inside, then bounced off of Nobody Saved the World and settled on F.I.S.T.. Alex has proved himself superior to Inscryption, having finished in in a mode 8 times more difficult than the one …
 
Chamberlain here. I was asleep at time of recording. Not sure what the bug was/is but I am slightly better now and will certainly be better tomorrow. Thanks to Chance and Alex for making sure the show goes on. So Two Out of Three Ain't Bad. In the day since this was recorded Meat Loaf died. Bat Out of Hell was the first CD I ever owned, played loud…
 
January is usually rough for new games but the first two weeks of 2022 have been barren. Chamberlain is using the time to catch up on last year's not quite AAA games, finishing up Lost in Random, Kena, The Takeover and starting Chorus, none of which are amazing but are all better than a swift king to the fellas. Alex has started Last Epoch, a game …
 
Welcome to 2022, in which all the deferred gaming dreams of 2021 will come true! This means that Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, Dying Light 2, STALKER 2, Breath of the Wild 2, God of War Ragnarök and Starfield will all come out AND will all be good, right? Chamberlain, Chance and Alex indulge this fantasy while catching up on last year's indie…
 
It wasn't easy, but Chamberlain, Chance and Alex are all in the same place at the same time and have managed to winnow down a year's worth of games to their top fives. The year was not as bad as any of them remembered but there is not the same level of agreement between them as past years. Is there fighting between them? Maaaaybe. You will have to …
 
The podcast continues to operate at one third power, this time with Alex missing, his presence required by the late stage capitalist machine (he had to work). In his week off Chamberlain finished Halo Infinite, which was okay, House of Ashes, which was not really a game, and started Guardians of the Galaxy, which really isn't much of a game, either…
 
Prepare for the most disjointed episode ever. Not only is Alex not present due to technical difficulties but Chance and Chamberlain are attempting to record while watching the first hour of the Game Awards. Watch along while they deal with a 3 second difference between their streams! Chamberlain has finished up Far Cry 6 and moved on to the scifi v…
 
It's December and there are no new games. There is only the anticipation for new games and the nostalgia for old games. Unless you are Chamberlain. He didn't get enough of the UbiGame with Assassin's Creed Valhalla so his is submitting himself to Far Cry 6, in spite of his own admission of not liking it very much. Chance is still playing Metal Gear…
 
Happy Thanksgiving (if you are in the US), and if you are Canadian, a general congratulations is in order. No Alex this week, he is busy doing important family (and future family) related things. Chamberlain is here, fighting the good fight in the hostile retail environs of the fourth quarter, so all he has to offer is some tiny progress in Far Cry…
 
Chamberlain is back and all he wants to do is go fast in shiny cars. Forza Horizon 5 is there is fill that need and Far Cry 6 is not quite up to the task. Chance, in a fit of bored desperation, repurchased Metal Gear Solid 5 and has suffered no ill effects, though overdosing on Kojima word salad is a constant danger. And Alex gave the League of Leg…
 
This week, Alex admits he has a problem. It's a true, deep seeded addiction that can only be sated with loot based dungeon crawlers of the highest quality. He bought the Diablo II remake and has not stopped regretting it. Chance has stayed busy with Darkest Dungeon II, getting so good at it that the developers had to make the game harder for everyo…
 
Chamberlain was late to recording and so, rudderless, Chance and Alex talked about Darkest Dungeon II. And then they talked about Darkest Dungeon II some more. And then they talked about how good Chance was at the game and how bad Chamberlain was at the first one. Chamberlain played a little bit of Inscryption and disagrees with Alex, and the rest …
 
Fresh off of a mediocre time with Metroid Dread, Chamberlain returned to Tales of Arise and finished it. He now has blue, two different color eyes, wields mismatched long swords and has a tortured back story in which he was influenced by the will of the planet, therefore nothing he does is his fault. It is the Aether's fault he didn't love Dread. A…
 
Last week Chance bemoaned Metroid Dread's full price when compared to its run length. This week Chamberlain puts that to the test (Chance was right). Alex spent his whole week playing Diablo 3 and listening to move podcasts. The killing of demons can be a mantra of sorts (Chance was right). And Chance, without warning, bought, and has had the temer…
 
Neither Alex nor Chamberlain have anything nice to say about Tales of Arise, but only one of them was smart enough to stop playing it. And you know who that was. Instead of wading through bad writing and boring characters Alex has been wading through defeated hell minions, hip deep at times, as he has thoroughly and completely broken Diablo III. He…
 
Prepare yourself for uncharted podcast territory. Chamberlain cannot make the normal recording time, but he has things to say, so he is recording a bit all by his lonesome. More importantly, Chance and Alex are here for you, together, ready to comfort your ears with tales of Diablo 3, Death Stranding and Midnight Mass. Also, someone out there on th…
