GHX Ep 19: A Wild Strip Mahjong Appears

leave a comment »

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!”

GHX Ep. 18: Technical Disaster

leave a comment »

This week Fred and Trees return with a new format, but the same great content.  Main topics include games that we return to and Fred’s lack of loot box thrills, followed by 5 of the community’s “lightening round” topics, and then getting to know your hosts.  Don’t think we forgot “Just Stop” because it’s there too.

GHX Episode 14: Full House

leave a comment »

This episode is a packed house with Wolfy (overclock.net) and guest Chase (learnedfromgaming.com) 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 lengthy “Just Stop” section resulting in the longest (but one of the strongest) episodes yet.

GHX Ep. 13: Previously On…

leave a comment »

This week it’s Fred and Trees again discussing upcoming game releases, hugely priced deluxe editions, and alternative forms of XP before the show even takes off.  Topics include returning to games after major updates and titles we like to watch played instead of play ourselves.  It all wraps with some insightful “Just Stop!” segments.

GHX Ep. 12: Just Having Fun

with 2 comments

This week it’s just Fred and Trees as they ring in American independence.  Listener mail sees a lot of Nintendo Switch talk (and Fred just found one in the wild), but for the most part it’s all about having fun playing the games of summer.
