Live Show: How does Dark Souls II on PC stack up against consoles?

It's impressive
Apr 25
// Spencer Hayes
Whenever you bring up the Souls series of games, you have to talk about the absolutely terrible PC port of 2011's Dark Souls. Let's be real, Dark Souls on PC was not developed by someone who cared about the PC market. Three y...

Live show: Finishing up Beyond: Two Souls

I can only imagine what happens afterward
Apr 24
// Spencer Hayes
I have very few qualms with calling Beyond: Two Souls a bad game. From it's incredibly poorly executed QTEs to its incredibly hamfisted writing there is very little in there that I would call decent, and even fewer examples o...

Apr 21
// Spencer Hayes
Seriously, will we ever shut up about Valkyria Chronicles? Short answer: No. Long answer: "Oh my god why didn't anyone play this game. It's seriously brilliant and it deserves even more praise than it gets." But that's not th...

There was a time back in middle school when flash games ruled a large part of my attention span. So many classics, surely you all remember that one with stickmen and tons of violence? How about that other one about violent st...

It's still not a Bear Force One game.
Apr 10
// Spencer Hayes
I wish there were witty things to say about Broforce, but what can you even say about this masterpiece? It's a co-op (bro-op) game about shooting tons of terrorists as the protagonists of your favorite action movies. This see...

Apr 02 // Spencer Hayes
[embed]272790:53238:0[/embed]   Now, while I'm being sneaky down here it's time to talk about our really rad giveaway we're doing on the channel. We're handing out a copy of Watch_Dogs when it releases. Want to enter? Hit that subscribe button on the channel OR send in a postcard. The details are down there under the post. Go check it out if you care. Oh, and all of the giveaway stuff will be handled off of Twitch so don't worry about crazy Twitch laws. 
My apologies to the Anthropy family.
While I was growing up my mother always taught me that revenge was a dish best served cold. Well Mom, today the dish is being served lukewarm. If you checked out our previous Dark Souls 2 stream you'll remember that Phil insi...

If you've never heard of the game TUG I wouldn't blame you. I mean, I had only learned about it a few weeks ago. As my producer Bill Zoeker (Zoey) pitched it, "Think like Minecraft but for your weird hipster people Spencer." ...
