Welcome to spring! To celebrate the new blooms on the trees and new baby animals springing up everywhere, we're playing a game entirely centered around death and dying...but in the cutest way possible! Seriously though, this game was heavy, and light, and well, basically EVERYTHING to us. So much so, that we had to bring on a special guest, Corriga…
 
Someday we'll make it back to a 1980s LucasArts game...BUT NOT TODAY! This month we're diving deep into Donut County and loving every sugary crumb of it. It's not often a game is created, designed, programmed, scored, and produced by just one person...but this one somehow was and it's kind of a masterpiece! So get your pink boxes ready and your dus…
 
We're getting back to our roots and really pandering to our target audience (and ourselves) with this month's throwback: Escape From Monkey Island. Released in Y2K, this beast of a puzzle-monkey-kombat-adventure game is full of some of our favorite characters, locations, inside jokes, and even a nod to the name of the pod itself! Hope you get a cha…
 
Happy holidays to all and to all a good pod! Here are our end of the year awards for all the games we played. We talk plenty of games, but also LOTS of tangents. Hope you enjoy it. And stay tuned for our bloopers and bleepers highlight reel at the very end. It's a doozy. It's been a great ride and we're looking to many more years of gaming together…
 
It's our December game!!! Hope this helps bring some warmth to your holiday season and Jason welcomes on Renata Price, games critic formerly of Fanbyte who somehow enjoyed Paradise Killer even more than Jason. It's a real love fest. Hope you were able to play! (Unlike lazybones Corrigan and sluggard Ben) After the introduction they get into the dev…
 
For the first time in the history of MOLMF, we're not publishing our game on time. 2020 is still 2020. So while our Paradise Killer ep is still a few weeks away, Jason and Ben got together to have a little conversation about some of their favorite games they've played recently, as well dealbreakers they've discovered over the years. Enjoy! And of c…
 
Happy Halloween!!! Hopefully you're finding fun ways to celebrate the spookiest of holidays, full of plenty of candy and terrors--I know we are! We played the terrifying and surprisingly thoughtful and story-centric tale Little Nightmares, and we're bringing it to you a week early so you can rightfully celebrate All Hallows' Eve with our scariest e…
 
We took a quick break from Little Nightmares to play another MOLMF classic: Star Wars Squadrons. It's a new Star Wars game so of course we had to play it and we were even lucky enough to bring in our old Friend Of Low Moral Fiber Sean Thompson to help us take her for a spin! Thanks again to Sean for joining us! And of course, you can always find us…
 
We downloaded this game YEARS ago, so it's a pleasure to finally get to talk about it as we welcome in Dr. Wendi Sierra onto the pod as a scholar, game developer, writer, and Oneida tribe member. We start off getting into who Wendi is and diving into her area of research, then we dive into the game itself and all of our experiences playing it. Afte…
 
We're running things back...to earlier this year. That's right, it may be a new game, but it definitely hearkens back to the games of yore that inspired this pod in the first place. Hope you get a chance to play it! It's another one of those great episodes where the history and development just smooshes into the gameplay with no discernible separat…
 
FIFTY EPISODES! We're so happy to have been doing this podcast for 50 full episodes thus far and hope to bring you another 50 more over the next few years. Thanks again to all of our listeners and supporters for all the encouragement and engagement over the years. Hope you enjoy this special 50th episode! Today we're re-playing Thimbleweed Park to …
 
Thanks for bearing with us as we took the month of June off. It's great to finally be back, and we're looking forward to so many more great games this year! First off, it was so fun to finally go back and play these two games. Reminded us of why we started MOLMF in the first place. Secondly, we spent some extra time this episode talking about what'…
 
We fell in love with Undertale this month. Hopefully you got a chance to play it with us, just like our guest did (who somehow managed to play it much better than us...jeez), Corrigan's sister, Ed! Thanks for joining us! After some introductory info and jibber-jabber we finally get into the development of Undertale (17:30) and talk about the specif…
 
Jason, Corrigan, and Ben all watched the 20-part documentary series "Double Fine Adventure" all about the making of Broken Age (see our last episode for more details on that game). It chronicled everything from the artwork to the development to the budget to the reception, and wow. It was jam-packed full of golden nuggets that we hope to distill do…
 
We're keeping it pretty fresh this month and playing a game that's only 5 years old! That's right. We're on it. And due to the terrible state of the entire world today, we're bringing you another Side Quest this month! Huzzah!!! Now to the episode at hand... Corrigan, Jason, and Ben were all around twiddling their thumbs, so they dive right into th…
 
It's been too long since we've side quested, but we felt like this would be a fun series of quests. First up: 1993. And wow, what a roster of games from that year. Sit back and relax as Jason, Ben, & Corrigan take you for a trip down memory lane with some of the standout games from long, long ago... Oh yeah, if you enjoyed this episode, please shar…
 
The trio is back! And we're diving into the newly-finished indie pentology of Kentucky Route Zero. Hope you were able to give this one a shot, because it's one of those rare truly unique and special games. And while each of us differed on our overall love for it, we all were blown away by different aspects of the game and had plenty to talk about i…
 
We're welcoming back an old FOLMF this week to help us launch SEASON 5 of Men Of Low Moral Fiber, Tyler Weaver! He's joined us for previous Star Wars games, so this one was right up his alley. Hope you enjoy the show! After a quick intro, we get into the development (4:00) which bleeds into gameplay eventually (18:30). Then we play some delicious W…
 
We're only a week or two late with this episode, but hopefully it brings you some cheer as you settle back into your normal work/school/life weeks post-holidays. We had a blast recapping 2019 in this episode and handing out awards to the best, worst, and MOLMFiest games of the year, as well as looking ahead and dreaming about what joys 2020 will br…
 
Hope you're having a great holiday season and great end to a wonderful decade--the decade that brought us all MOLMF!

Give it a listen and let us know what's on YOUR list! molmfpod@gmail.com FYI: Our Holiday Special will b…
 
We're diving deeeeeep into The Stanley Parable this month as we debate whether or not we listen to that ever-present voice in our heads constantly telling us what to do. We hope you get a chance to play this marvelous game because even though the three of us differed on how much we liked this game overall, we each really appreciated different aspec…
 
Tis the season... Star Wars season!!! There's a new Star Wars game coming out this month, and the last film in the Skywalker Saga coming out next month, so we figured why not play another classic Star Wars game from the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight/Kyle Katarn series? So we did! We start off talking about the development of the game (3:30) and get into …
 
Happy Halloween! It’s officially scary season here at MOLMF headquarters and we’re excited and terrified to play Among The Sleep. Wow…definitely a horrifying-at-times kinda game, but some really high highs for sure. Go get this for Switch and enjoy it like we did! We pretty quickly get into the development of the game and the company behind it (5:0…
 
This game blew us away! Really a fun surprise and we hope you had a chance to play it as well. Corrigan couldn't be bothered to play with us this month, so it's just Jason and Ben running around the galaxy, blowing s#@* up...but we thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. You will be missed dear Corrigan, but we're excited to have you back next month! Th…
 
We're talking all things Ringo this week in this fighting/RPG/open-world strange game from earlier this year. Jason walks us through the making of the game and we all dive fist-first into the gameplay as (most of us) were able to beat the whole thing this month. After the intro, we get into the making of the game and why we (Jason) chose to play it…
 
It's officially Stranger Things season, and we're keeping things strange on the pod by talking all about the 2015 episodic adventure Life Is Strange.

After some high level tomfoolery, we finally get into the development of the game (5:00), and dive deeeeeep into the gameplay eventually …
 
We played more of Jason's students' text-based games! They're really amazing.

We're back to our Monkey Island-ing ways in the third of the Monkey Island epic pentalogy, and while it's a bit of a departure from Ron Gilbert's first 2 games, it's more of the same for us as we welcome back Corrigan Vaughan to the podcast to discuss all of her piratey adventures along the way! We get into the background and making of the game at …
 
Just like the nostalgic feelings this game brought to us, we welcomed back an old favorite guest, Sean Thompson! Lucky for us, he was able to join us for the WHOLE THING. So enjoy that... Some intros and dev talk, then into the gameplay (7:30), and give a bit of an overview of the plot at (19:30). After a few follow up questions to the story (32:30…
 
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. Hope you had a chance to pick up Kôna this past month, because it's definitely a mind-bending, terrifying, intriguing game. Here we go... After the intro, we…
 
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. We spent over 75 hours combined completing this one, so we hope you enjoy the podcast as much as we enjoyed playing the game! After intros and backstories, we get into t…
 
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. As usual, Ben is very well organized and follows the rules while Jason gives way too many winners per category. Happy holidays and hope you enjoy the ep!…
 
We've both been neck deep in western games the past few weeks, including this LucasArts classic: Outlaws--the first ever western FPS.

After the intro, we talk making-of and development (3:30), then talk gameplay (12:00), before getting into some unsettling …
 
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 joined again by R…
 
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 kill…
 
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 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 ge…
 
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 that…
 
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 hi…
 
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 joining u…
 
Merry Holidays, everyone! We hope your gaming year was as gleeful as ours.

Thanks again for listening! Hope you have a great vacatio…
 
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 gameplay a…
 
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 dev…
 
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.
