The End Is The Beginning

• December 20th, 2017

Here it is, the big one, the final podcast that Fred and Jam are doing on the regular.  It by no means signifies an end to this show, these hosts, and especially the content.  Instead it's GH101 taking a stance that properly covering games requires time and consideration, especially when it comes to picking the best medium (audio, video, article) to cover a game or topic.  The rest is in the hefty 3+ hour show, so we'll just let the hosts explain it.

The History of Visceral Games (aka EA Redwood)

• November 13th, 2017

This week Fred and Jam discuss the surprisingly large library of games developed by Visceral Games, formerly EA Redwood.  Recently closed in the production of an unnamed <em>Star Wars</em> title, the studio was responsible for far more than the handful of titles everyone knows.

GHX Ep. 19: A Wild Strip Mahjong Appears

• November 2nd, 2017

This week we are hurting as technical issues continue to plague our show (mostly edited out), Trees gets injured and can't make the show, Jam needs sleep at some point, and our guest has to cancel.  Fortunately Strip Mahjong joins at the last minute and what results is an amusing and thought-provoking discussion.  Topics include whether or not gaming is for kids anymore and a love letter to Microsoft's recent efforts followed by lightning round, Splatoon 2, Mutant Football League, and of course "Just Stop!"

This episode features a massive three hours dedicated largely to the Wolfenstein franchise.  Most are probably aware of the more recent shooters and the 90s game from id, but there's a lot more to tell about this somewhat underappreciated series.  Fred and Jam start with the original title on the Apple II and move all the way to the upcoming sequel this Friday.  Segment 2 is all about community questions and segment 3 wraps things up with some neo-retro gaming from both hosts.
