Episode #38 - Genesis Does What Vatican't
There are two questions we should ask ourselves before we die - what is God's plan and how many videogame consoles did he own growing up? He's not a real gamer if it's less than three, bottom line. From the onset, religion in videogames has always been a taboo topic - but why? On today's episode we finally get real and take a theological approach to our favorite hobby. So in the name of the Father, Son and Sega Genesis...let's pray.

Episode #37 - 1-UP All Night
Just as Mario finishing every level, we have finished 2021 only to find out our princess is in another castle. But the joke is on her because last year was ugly and we hated her anyway. So aside from resolutions to trim our gaming diet we also proudly present the first episode of the new year. Today we talk about games we played for hours without sleep, bad ideas from friends, funerals for nuns, the trolls of twitter and much more! So tell us, gamer - are you ready for your second playthough?

On today's bonus episode, we discuss the 1954 novel "Lord of the Flies" and its themes of human impulse, individuality, and the loss of innocence. Just kidding, we just put videogame characters on an deserted island and see who kills who first.

OMGame Boy mini-cast: Episode #22 "GG, Jeff G!"
They say that "life, uh, finds a way". And with that we finally found a way to dedicate an entire episode to the only videogame appearance (probably) of the weirdest actor ever - Jeff Goldblum. Join us in watching the secret ending of a 1997 Jurassic Park game no one remembers - not even Goldblum himself!

Episode #34 - Simp Bizkit
Sidekicks. They get in the way more than they get to the goal. They're like heroes... but not really. Video games are no different. Our digital journeys are filled with countless sidekicks, companions, simps - call them what you want - and they drive us crazy with ill-timed commentary, horrible aim and "block the doorway" physics. Why can't we get away from them? When will they get the hint that we aren't interested in them sexually? In today's episode we take the time to do extensive research on all of gaming's most popular NPCs. Are they helping us for the good of the mission or, as Mr. Durst would say, did they do it all for the nookie?

Episode #33 - The Notorious B.F.G.
Mars and Hell have alot in common. Both are orange in appearance and can be annoyingly hot. Kind of like lasagna. But unlike that Italian dish, the other two were visited by bulky action heroes and at one point also contained the most coveted video game weapon of all time - the BFG. On today's episode, we went to Hell and back to bring you everything we know (and didn't want to know) about DOOM, the weapons, the games, the comic book and much more. So without further ado..."Rip & Tear"!

Episode #32 - Ehrgeiz and Dolls
Let's be honest: fighting games suck. We can button mash & keep holding the block button all we want in Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or some random one-off (see: this episode's title), but it's all BS. Honestly, who could stand there and take a 25 hit combo to the face and not be instantly dead? On today's episode we pause our game, check the moves list and get in the ring with some of gaming's most overrated and even unknown competitive fighters. The jig is up. The gloves are off. Who's got next?

OMGame Boy mini-cast: Episode #17 "Are Video Games Art?"
Famous film critic Roger Ebert once declared that video games could never be art. But did he ever take in account if art could be video games? In today's episode we showcase two pieces of art that could very well prove Mr. Ebert wrong. (Also on YouTube - https://youtu.be/vFaqOpkp6KM)

Episode #31 - Poké Diem
The year is 1996. It is a blissful time of ALF, pogs and Tupac. However, a dark animal abuse simulator was on the horizon. It was Pokémania! But where do you even begin - the cards, the anime, the hundreds of video games? On today's episode, we'll expertly guide you through the entire Pokémon franchise as best we can. From Abra all the way to Zubat! And we won't even hide the fact that we would rather be talking about literally anything else. And we mean ANYTHING!

OMGame Boy mini-cast: Episode #16 "8-Bit Box Office"

OMGame Boy mini-cast: Episode #15 "The Legend of Zelda Rubinstein"
What hasn't been said about "The Legend of Zelda"? For 35 years, it continues to capture the hearts of anyone that ventures into the magical land of Hyrule to help Link save the princess, stop Ganon and save the world. Today, we pay homage to it by not paying homage to it. Instead we're celebrating Zelda Rubinstein, the actress from the 1982 film "Poltergeist".

Episode #29 - Konami Code of Conduct
We live in a society where humanity adheres to certian codes. Moral codes. Codes of Law. Garage Door Codes. Codec Code frequencies. But what if there was just one code that rose above the rest. A code so powerful and universal it transcended all of space and time as we knew it. In today's episode, we dissect the most famous video game cheat of all time - the Konami Code. I think now is as good a time as any to UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, START the revolution, don't you?
