The National Pastime – Episode 14

Hosts: Melvin, Ryan, Megan, Zack, Sofia

The last episode of the season and possibly our best episode yet! Our hosts this week discuss hyperviolence in video games, but the conversation evolves into so much more.

Show Notes:

  • Just keep in mind that we recorded this early May so we didn’t know about FFXV yet…
  • Melvin also says something with Halo and green blood that he confused hearing somebody talk about it rather than actual source. SORRY!

The National Pastime – Episode 12

The National Pastime – Episode 12

Hosts: Melvin, Megan, Kayley, Ryan

This week, our hosts talk about who they’d be on a sitcom set and backwards compatibility in games and the next gen!

Show notes:

  • It should be noted that we recorded this at the end of April so there’s a lot of stuff about next-gen we didn’t know yet for the conversation, but it doesn’t affect the conversation THAT much.
  • Oh, also, I didn’t realize until after the episode but we never really finalized what kind of sitcom character Ryan would be. I think he’d be more of a Joey (from Friends) character cause he has lots of sex and is dumb =D

The National Pastime – Episode 6

The National Pastime – Episode 6

Hosts: Melvin, Brodie, Clayton, Kayley

This week our hosts discuss the game they’d play if they were forced to play only one game from now until the end of time, as well as their game of the generation!

Show Notes:

  • So sorry guys! Zack and Megan were in the next room doing stuff, and their voices kind of carried into the background of the podcast. At one point, Kayley and I will whisper about it. Sometimes it’s not too bad, but sometimes it is >.< Most of the podcast is good aside from that.
