The title says it all. It's been such a busy week that I completely forgot I even do this podcast, so as the evening of today creeped up, I remembered, "Wait...don't I do a weekly podcast about games and crap?!" So here we are with a thankful episode you can easily skip if you want, but if you choose to give it a listen, expect a shorty featuring a…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc rages through these corridors, those corridors, and morridors in Alien Rage, a game about raging as you try and kill every alien before they kill you first! It's a fitting title for a shitty title in this episode with the witty title; by the way, when I was a kid, I performed in a piano recital. Anyway, s…
 
Marc starts things off this week with a bit of backward compatibility talk, before diving into what they've been playing, including a party game that's no fun for parties of one, a resource management sim with oral and anal sex, and a visual novel with barely, if any, romance. If any of that sounds interesting to you, give this episode a listen and…
 
Well, Turkey Day is almost upon us, so what better way to celebrate stuffing our faces than to talk about cannibals?! Join Shawn and Preston for a chat about what happens when your plane gets stranded, why Preston won't fly with Shawn and why you may want to avoid hotdogs... Cheers and bon appetit!

This week's episode is short, but sweet, with not one, but multiple treats. There's an RTS game on consoles that controls surprisingly well, a classic shmup that's good whether you're a fan or not, and a solid platformer inspired by 8-bit classics. If any of this sounds good to you, give this here episode a listen while you poo. You're sure to have…
 
Gather round, gather round, it's time once again for another Cryptid Encounter! And what better way to celebrate our 20th encounter than to chat about everyone's favorite bulbous-headed forest dwellers: The Melon Heads!? So grab yourself a snack and lock the doors... cuz these little folks might just be outside your house! Cheers and enjoy the show…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc goes on a handful of online dates in Five Dates, a game about, well, online dating that is, surprisingly, nowhere near as cringey as it could have been. Your buddy may be a bit of a weirdo creep, but the dates you go on are far from weird and creepy, so if you want that online dating action without actual…
 
This week's episode has a couple of point-and-click adventures, a dreamy game that's sometimes a nightmare to play, a game all about fishing that finds me fishing for reasons to stick with it in its current buggy form, and a bloody Micro Machines-type game that's surprisingly okay (but just okay). Also, there's a new season and a new map for Apex L…
 
This week's episode is a bit of a downer with a handful of disappointing games and only a few bright spots. From a remaster that feels more like a port to a cheap and ugly twin-stick shooter, there's not too much to get excited about this week, unless you like yourself some retro FPS action or metroidvania-esque games and, let's be honest, who does…
 
Ok folks, it's time again for another "Fact or Faked" episode, and this time it's city VS city as we share the unfortunate tales of 2 cursed towns: Ashley, KS and Centralia, PA. Both share unfortunate endings, but only one tale is true! Cheers and enjoy the show! Voicemail: 913.662.3144 - Email: pixelatedparanormal[at]gmail[dot]com…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc shows just how much they're willing to do for a Patron, shitting their pants, making no kind of sanse, all while spying on murderous furry robots in Five Nights at Freddy's, a game that takes Chuck E. Cheese and changes it to Fuck U. Please! Anyway, something-something, it was a self-induced hell, but onl…
 
Well it seems as though the internet Gods are punishing Preston again, and Stephen is on vacation, so that means that Shawn is all by himself delivering a little news that hit the headlines recently. Hippos, Felonies and missing people... Oh my! Cheers and enjoy the show. Voicemail: 913.662.3144 - Email: pixelatedparanormal[at]gmail[dot]com…
 
This week's episode is another full one, but unlike some of the more recent episodes, this one features many games Marc enjoyed, including a fairly traditional rogue-lite with great art and great mechanics, and a linear survival game set in a surreal world that's both a joy to explore and discover. If you want some spice and variety in your life, g…
 
Another week and another jam-packed episode full of many different games, from twin-stick shooters, to virtual reality survival games, and even a simulator all about fixing rovers. There are good games, okay games, and bad games, but which is which will only be learned by listening to the podcast, so grab them earbuds, turn on the hot tub, and enjo…
 
There comes a time in your Paranormal researching life where you just gotta stop and ask yourself: "Are all these blurry videos of Bigfoot and Little Green Men just a bunch of hog-wash?!" Well, we don't don't know the answer to that question, but we've had our fair share of WTF moments in our day, so on this episode, Shawn and Preston dive into som…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc descends down hills while dehydrated in Descenders, a game all about dominating mountains one course at a time, lest you fail and have to start over from the beginning. It's basically a downhill mountain biking roguelike and it's super rad. Anyway, something-something, I just want a new Downhill Dominatio…
 
This week's episode is jam-packed and overflowing with games, games, and more games. Whether you're a fan of shooters, adventure games, puzzle games, platformers, or anything in between, there is something for you here (unless you only play racing games...sorry). Is what's here any good? Well, that's a whole 'nother story and something you'll only …
 
Marc is even more out of their mind this week thanks to an unexpected death in the tech family that led to a surprise spending of lots of money. But who cares about that?! What you really care about are video games and video games they got, including one that talks way too much, thinks it's so funny, and is unabashedly inspired by Metal Gear, and a…
 
Hot off his return flight from Vegas, Shawn joins Preston to discuss what it’s like to sit in the crowd of an auditorium-sized psychic reading, from the Jersey Shore Medium herself, Theresa Caputo. Then they jump into some bizarre fudge-related news! Yup… that’s right, we said fudge. So grab your favorite candy bar, put your feet up and enjoy the s…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc rides pains, brains, and automofeels--even I think this is terrible--in Psychonauts...1, naut 2, a game where you enter the minds of NPCs and see what happens when you pee ‘nside...or something like that--doubling down on the terribleness, eh. Psychonauts originally came out on April 19th, 2005 for PC and…
 
Marc is ever-so-slightly out of their mind this episode as they talk about future projects they'd like to work on before eventually getting to what they've been playing, including yet another Overcooked-esque game, a game where YOU are fish, and a Pokemon clone that even kind of clones the name. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this here episode and hope y…
 
It's not often that you come across bizarre creatures during wartime, but by golly, we found a few. On this episode, Shawn and Preston discuss the Crocodingo and Ol' Green Eyes, 2 strange monsters that stalked townsfolk and soldiers alike, during the Civil War. Cheers and enjoy the show!

Marc breaks hearts this week speaking the hard truth about SkateBIRD--spoilers: it's not good. In addition to crapping on SkateBIRD like birds crapping on StreetCURBS, Marc talks about a Resident Evil wannabe that gets one thing right, but everything else wrong, and a game where you make shakes on a plane that's surprisingly plain. Anyway, that is …
 
It’s that time again, folks! Lock the doors and turn the lights down low, 'cause baby, we've got another installment of Pixelated Paranormal’s Late Night series, and it’s another steamy one! We’ve got saucy spirit possessions, haunted paintings, robot rights and yes… the long awaited Naughty Gnome Novella! So just like last time, stay up late with …
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc shoots their way through the forests, villages, caves, and ruins of Jumanji: The Video Game, the video game all about Jumanji: The Movie. Not the original movie starring Robin Williams, but the new (good) ones, starring The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, that one Jonas brother, the guy who’s …
 
Marc feels nothing on this episode as most of the games discussed just don't click with them, from a game about shooting demons that was doomed to fail from the start, to a game that wants so badly to be classic Grand Theft Auto that you can't help but (unfavorably) compare the two. Anyway, that is it, that is all, if you hear the phone ringing, do…
 
This episode is short, but sweet, and lacks any game that'll make you want to get on your feet, disappointing all of you Gloria Estefan fans out there. From a murder mystery, to an animal-filled adventure, and even a game that feels like Groundhog Day, not one of them stands out as something you need to play. That said, if you want to know why you …
 
Ka Ka, Tookie Tookie! We’re back again to round out our dive into the bizarre phenomenon of Flying Humanoids, this time diving into modern day dinosaurs and some bizarre cases of dismembered flying heads! Cheers and enjoy the show! Voicemail: 913.662.3144 - Email: pixelatedparanormal[at]gmail[dot]com…
 
On this episode of Attack the Backlog, Marc hacks and slashes their way through the forests and deserts of Cat Quest II, the sequel to Cat Quest, which adds a playable dog companion and doubles down on the cat puns with dog puns to go along with ‘em. It’s still as cute as it ever was and brings the series to Xbox for the first time. Cat Quest II or…
 
This episode isn't quite as jam-packed as the last two, but there is still plenty to get excited about, like Marc going off on why the sharpening setting on TVs is garbage and a game played exclusively through audio cues. Anyway, as always, thanks for listening and I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful rest of your day. Games Discussed: Dungeon Ex…
 
Look up there, in the sky! It’s a bird… it’s a plane… no, no it’s Batman? Or Spring Heel Jack? Or just some guy with a jetpack? Since the dawn of man, humans have dreamed of soaring up in the clouds, but WHAT IF our skies were already inhabited by strange humanoids wearing metal wings? Or perhaps witches, shrouded in black? Come on then and join us…
 
This episode has it all, from romancing vampires and serial killers (but no romancing vampire serial killers) to wrestling with Boo from Super Mario Bros. and Shredder from TMNT! Do you like card battling and Diablo-like games? Want a combination of the two? Well then... Do you like fantasy-themed tactics games of the non-final kind? If you said ye…
