One of humanity's greatest regrets is that we never existed at the same time as dinosaurs, and therefore never got to fight them in a planetwide Thunderdome for control of existence. So instead, we imagine the conflict over and over in videogames. This week, Chris picks out five of the best games to feature human-on-dinosaur violence, after which w…
 
Videogames aren't always the most welcoming medium for newcomers, and one way they can confuse is through their titles; some series are easy enough to decipher, while others are Byzantine jumbles of numbers and subtitles. With game-industry legend Chris Baker on board, we look at five series with nonsensical titles, after which we'll dig into Summe…
 
If they were to happen in real life, the events of a lot of videogames could leave a person seriously messed up - and yet, videogame protagonists always seem to effortlessly bounce back in time for a new adventure. Every so often, though, the events of one game will leave a hero at their breaking point in the next, and this week we invite Tony Wils…
 
Back in the '80s, Rambo (along with a lot of other action and sci-fi movie franchises) had a huge influence on game developers, and there was a point when the standard uniform for serious arcade action heroes was just a pair of pants and a headband. This week, TL Foster joins us for a celebration of five of gaming's most memorable John Rambo clones…
 
Roller Champions is out this week, so to mark the occasion, we decided it'd be as good a time as any to look at five action games starring rough-and-tumble badasses who are strapped into a pair of roller skates the entire time for some reason. Then we'll talk about Microsoft Flight Simulator's Top Gun expansion, Pac Man Museum+, EA acquisition rumo…
 
This week was sandwiched between an elaborate MultiVersus Trailer and the new Rescue Rangers movie, so naturally our thoughts gravitated toward children's TV animation — specifically, five of our favorite games based on it — and we invited Jeremy King of the Film Heat podcast on to help us talk about it. Then it's on to Sony's latest PS+ announceme…
 
With this week's release of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising — a side-scrolling prequel to the upcoming JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes — we've invited Anthony Abatte on for a look at five other times big games gave players a little taste with all-too-brief (non-demo) prequel games before launch. Then we'll slash our way through Trek to Yomi and Sa…
 
Some (mostly older) game consoles launched with generation-defining games packed into the box; others found them a little later down the line. This week, we'll take a look at five of the best games ever to be added as a bonus after their native consoles had already been around for a little while, after which we'll get into Nintendo Switch Sports, T…
 
Dune: Spice Wars hit early access on PC this week, and its based-on-the-movie-based-more-closely-on-the-book status inspired us to invite Ryan Harig of Conspiracy Therapy on for a chat about five games that directly adapted novels and short stories. Then we'll get into Norco, Sony's game-preservation efforts, the Mario movie getting delayed, and yo…
 
With The Batman hitting streaming this week, our dormant interest in The Caped Crusader has been rekindled, and we've invited Dan Amrich on for a chat about five of the best (non-Arkham) Batman games. Then we'll get into the Ghostbusters VR reveal, Sega's alleged Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio reboots, and the properties you'd like to see folded, ine…
 
Even the best games aren’t flawless; in fact, some even have moments that can (almost) derail the whole experience. PNB’s TL Foster joins us this week for a look at five of the most glaring examples, after which we’ll get into Chinatown Detective Agency, the Kingdom Hearts 4 reveal, Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s box-office success, and the creators you’d …
 
There's an argument to be made for videogame graphics being TOO detailed when that detail starts to include rendered, clearly visible buttholes on little dogs, giant pigs, and other things we won't mention here. But we WILL mention them in the show, as Tony Wilson of Framework joins us to talk about five games that didn't hide their shame, after wh…
