GHX Ep. 14: Full House

• August 2nd, 2017

This episode is a packed house with Wolfy and guest Chase joining Fred and Trees, but the discussion is worth the crowded conditions. Tangents begin immediately but eventually they get back to discussing modern console wars, vacations, the current Switch library, and Sonic's sordid legacy.  The venting continues with a lenthy "Just Stop" section resulting in the longest (but one of the strongest) episodes yet.

Future’s Past

• July 26th, 2017

This week Fred and Jam handle a slew of listener comments followed by the first part of the discussion on backward compatibility.  New consoles playing old games seems like a no-brainer that should be in every console, but over the course of history it was never consistent by any manufacturer.  Our duo compare the consoles that were backward compatible and how useful the function was in their own past.

Geralt of Rivia

• July 19th, 2017

There are plenty of RPGs in the world and there are plenty of worlds in the high fantasy genre, but few are as robust and diverse as The Witcher series.  Jam had to miss this week, but Fortengard takes his place to discuss not just the games, but the world of The Witcher and specifically its protagonist Geralt.  Discussions are had on the origins, influences, characters, and of course video games that all stem from a home base in Poland.
