Episode 102: With Paul still taking time off, Ric and Anna seize the opportunity to talk about a non-adventure game, and decide on Sim City.

Episode 101: That hiatus was inadvertent, but it was nice to have a break! Ric's mic is currently out of commission so his sound quality takes a hit as he makes do with a cheap headset. Oh and by the way, we talk about Les Manley a bit. If this write-up makes Les Manley sound rather irrelevant, then you pretty much understand his role in gaming his…
 
Episode 100: Ric catches Anna and Paul off guard with an impromptu On The Spot Challenge to determine the best classic puzzle game of all time - Lemmings vs The Incredible Machine!

Episode 99: We put it off long enough! Considered by many as the best point and click adventure game ever made, or at least a better story than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, we finally discuss Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

Episode 98: In the final entry of our October horror series, Anna and Paul played The Blackstone Chronicles, an undiscovered gem well worth the effort that is required to play it on a modern day system.

Episode 95: We kick off our October horror series with an interview with David Homb, everybody's favourite photographer-turned-demonically-possessed worst husband in the world, or at least the actor that played him in Phantasmagoria (we cannot vouch for anything he does in his personal life beyond our knowledge). Come check out this fun and casual …

Episode 92: The interview that Paul, Anna, and Ric never thought would happen!

Episode 90: When you describe a game as great, that would generally imply that the game is also fun, right? If you ask us (which you didn't, but hey), these games didn't get the memo.

Episode 85: This week, it's Anna's turn to put Ric and Paul on the spot and challenge them to cast live action adaptations of video game characters.
