Dan and Chris have been best friends for over 35 years. They have gone through many life experiences together. Since 2016, along with a few other friends, they endeavored to start a fan run comic convention in Rochester, NY. There have been many trials and tribulations of that, but they were able to successfully get that convention running, and have ultimately had a lot of fun doing it! We love nerd culture.

James' torture this month continues as Krissi takes him to a spooky mansion on the outskirts of Raccoon City, where agents of STARS came face to face with the first modern Survival Horror game.

Konami threw their hat into the survival horror genre in 1999 with the first Silent Hill game on the original Playstation. When it became a huge hit, they quickly greenlit a sequel for the then new Playstation 2.

The blue blur marked Sega's most effective attempt to become a major player in the console space, and for a few years in the 1990s the first entries in the series made the Genesis (or Mega Drive) a close competitor to Nintendo's home systems. James and Krissi are joined by KrunchyLex to chat about the hugely successful and highly influential first …
 
Casual gaming is a... contentious subject at times, shall we say. A lot of hardcore gamers deride the people who play them, and far too many of them are mired in microtransactions coupled with other sneaky tricks. But there are some legitimate gems amidst the dross out there, and Krissi is going to share what she believes to be the cream of the cro…
 
Justin Toner pinch hits for Krissi Harding while she continues to sort out her internet matters, and he discusses Koei's long running spin-off of a game series based on a novel based on actual history.

Dan and Chris are just a couple of typical guys who have been best friends …
 
Eating a ghost in Pac-Man. Picking up a treasure in the Legend of Zelda. The smack of a fist in Street Fighter II. These sounds (which don't actually appear in the episode, but plenty more do!) have meaning attached to them, whether implied or informed by experience. James and Krissi look at some that work great, and some that don't, and have a gra…

It seems in the quest to claim your leisure spending money, board game makers and media IP holders have found common ground by combining their ideas into variations of classic games you never knew you wanted, and in some cases never wanted in any way, shape or form! We're talking stuff ranging from misanthropic Monopoly editions to the baffling ide…

The trackball is a piece of arcade hardware that is evocative of its time, and in particular a quartet of legendary games from Atari: Missile Command, Centipede, Millipede and Crystal Castles. James has so much fondness for these games, that Krissi indulged him by letting him devote an entire episode to them. Okay, she didn't need much convincing, …
 
We conclude our discussions on the original Star Wars trilogy with, of course, Return of the Jedi. No movie is perfect of course, but what made this trilogy of movies so enduring that they have spawned so many books, tv shows, movies, and so much more?

A long time ago, in a theatre not too far away, an almost forgotten movie called "Star Wars" was released. Now we're sure most of you have never heard of this, so we thought it would be a great idea to talk about it, hopefully in a way you've never heard before. Be careful, we have a very bad feeling about this podcast... Monkey Business stars Chri…

James, Krissi and Pembroke W Korgi embark on a journey through all the crazy rumors surrounding the digital past time.

If you never laughed at our jokes before... wel…
