Whew. It's been a long couple weeks for us. We put out three episodes of the podcast within three days, and amid all the hubbub, we never announced what our next episode would be!
Our next episode for Jan. 25 will take a look at Gorogoa by Jason Roberts.

Dana and Cody continue their PAX South 2018 coverage by playing Keita Takahashi's Wattam, Donut County, Rival Megagun and Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition. We also talk about the joys of tabletop RPGs with some Pathfinder.
Cody and Dana hit the expo floor at PAX South 2018 to talk about Florence, Gorogoa, Party Hard 2, Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, Crossing Souls and more.
We'll be back tomorrow with another update from the show floor.
[W]hat makes us human? And what [I]s our purpose in life? Cody [A]nd Dana chew through the existential terror of NieR: Automata’s far-flun[G] science fiction drama with … complicated feelings.
Cody and Dana sit down to decide What's In A Game's inaugural 100 Percent Totally Awesome, Ultra-Legit Game of the Year.™
No spoilers this time, just our thoughts on some games we really loved this year.
Cody and Dana play Toby Fox's subversive, goofy, heartfelt ode to Earthbound, Undertale. If you need a pick me up after the last year, this is where you should start.
Light spoilers throughout, but for real spoilers start at 21:52.
Next episode will be What's In A Game's 100 Percent, Totally Awesome, Ultra Legit Games of the Year™ talk. Don't miss it!
Cody and Dana tuck, roll and dive through the surreal, fashion-forward kingdoms of Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch.
No real story spoilers, but some gameplay surprises throughout. (SPOILER: IT'S A REAL GOOD GAME).
Next episode, we'll chat about Inside (2016) by Playdead.
Cody & Dana take a look back on Remedy's ode to Twin Peaks, Stephen King and Hitchcock, Alan Wake (2010). Has it held up after seven years? In some ways, yes. In others, not even close.
To get everyone pumped up for Halloween, Dana and Cody dive into some of the most dreadful games out there: ANATOMY, Grandmother, CHYRZA and 000000FF0000, all by developer Kitty Horrorshow.
All these games are super short, so we enter the spoiler zone around 14:14. Most of them are also free, with the exception of ANATOMY.
