This week the schedule is all messed up so it ends up being only Fred and Trees.  They do manage to have a great discussion including putting final comments on last week’s That Dragon, Cancer debate, retro gaming at summer vacation spots, and next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).  Fred will be attending the show and bringing tons of podcast content next week, so stay tuned.

GHX Ep. 9 Addendum: That Dragon, Cancer

with one comment

After the comments shared on Gaming History X Episode 9, particularly in regards to the That Dragon, Cancer discussion, Eric felt more needed to be said especially from a different perspective.  We feel that all perspectives should be given equal opportunity to speak up, so Fred and Eric delve into the criticisms leveled at the game, it’s religious content, and the developer’s response to its sales.  The conversation goes a bit longer than necessary, but we felt it was worthwhile to keep unedited.  Note: Unlike most episodes, this show does not contain adult language.

This week Fred screws up again and it’s only him, Trees, and Jam.  This doesn’t stop them from a long-winded discussion on modern YouTube videos and commentary from the younger generation.  Additionally there’s talk of FMV titles, Early Access, and the horror genre.

GHX Ep. 7: Modern Retro Show

leave a comment »

It’s just Fred, Trees, and Jam this episode, but with a slew of great listener mail and plenty of solid topics the show most definitely goes on.  Jam is looking back on console killer apps, Trees is reminiscing about Disney Infinity‘s legacy, and Fred is wondering if the Scorpio even has a chance.

GHX Ep 4: Just…Stop…

leave a comment »

Fred and Trees are joined by Jesus of the Horrible Gamers Podcast to discuss a bunch of things going on right now that, quite frankly, bug us.  Instead of it being a whine fest the trio actually break down why these problems exist and how best to deal with them.  Additionally there’s reader mail and a “Just Stop” for good measure.
