Metal Gear Cybercast: Parents and Spouses Edition
Episode 33! After a brief hiatus, the Cybercast is back and ready for action - and it's a sneaking mission. Before D&D soak in the sure-to-be-everlasting-genius that is Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, they felt the need to explain the series history to their loved ones. Davis attempts to fill his wife in on the backstory of Big Boss and his three crazy cloned kids, while David and his father have a heart-to-heart on both the series as a whole, as well as the plot for the upcoming entry. The Cybercast: it's a family program.

Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland (DS)
Episode 29! In part two of our first-ever-accidental-Zelda-stravaganza, we barter with the cartoonish capitalism of Freshly Picked: Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland for the Nintendo DS, per Parker Higgins' suggestion/demands to us. What follows are our musings on Jodie Foster, Adam Smith, Laverne and Shirley, a 35-year-old man who decides he wants to be a fairy, and the increasingly thin thread connecting all of them.The Electric Cybercast: killing our idols since 2014.

Bonus Episode! David's out on the road and regales us with his tales of the far-off land of San Francisco and GDC. The boys discuss virtual reality and Bright Eyes because we are so indie and cool and hip and wear hoodies with thumbholes cut out of them and you just wouldn't understand.

Dark Souls Series
Episode 25! With Joe Russ's challenge from last episode echoing in their ears, the boys venture forth into exploring the decrepit underbelly of the Dark Souls series, and instead spend a half hour talking about their broken toys, Punk'd and mid-2000's emo.

Here and There Along the Echo
Episode 19! Sometimes the only winning move is not to play. Or it's to dial a phone number and listen to an old man talk about snakes.
