This week on the podcast, we're adding what is critically known as one of the worst games if not the worst game of all time in Dark Castle for the Sega Genesis. You play as a bumbling, stumbling knight(?) who has to defeat the Black Knight who throws beer cups at you. Along the way you'll discover wretched platforming, terrible hit detection and incoherent level design. Where do you think it'll fall on our Endless List?
We start Spooktober off with another Uwe Boll addition to the movie list as we add Alone in the Dark. Not only is this one of the lowest rated video game movies (according to Rotten Tomatoes) but it's also one of the lowest rated movies of all time. It stars Christian Slater, Tara Reid and Stephen Dorff in an action thriller with creatures, photon bullets and so much more. Where did rank on our video game movie list?

This week on the podcast we take a detour from RPG September to play a classic arcade sports game, Windjammers. Our first ever Data East game on the Endless List brought us pong/air hockey in 90s Street Fighter form. The addictive gameplay and classic style makes it a timeless classic in the pick up and play space. Join us as we add it to the list.
This week on the podcast, we did it! We finally recorded an episode on Suikoden! The game that is the precursor to the legendary JRPG. You take the role of the Hero as you search all the lands for the 108 heroes, otherwise known as the Stars of Destiny, and battle the corrupt empire! Where did this game land on our Endless List?
This week on the podcast, we're adding our second game in the September RPG month, it's Mass Effect. Sorry Suikoden has been pushed to next week due to unforeseen circumstances. We appreciate your patience. We know you must have such anticipation. But yes, Mass Effect: It's a game! You probably know about it! The Normandy, the Mako, Saren, Wrex, Garrus and all your favorites are here! Where did it land on the Endless List?
This week on the podcast, we start our RPG month with Pandora's Tower for the Nintendo Wii. This game made by Ganbarion was part of Operation Rainfall which brought Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower to the North American market. This action RPG makes novel use of the Wii's motion controls also tried to combine the story elements of Shadow of the Colossus with the dungeons of the Legend of Zelda to some success and some failure. Where did it land on the Endless List?
This week on the podcast, we watched Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Film's take on the Prince of Persia franchise. There's a lot of white people in this movie about a prince from Persia. There's also video game action shoehorned in everywhere and really bad writing (as expected!). Where did it land on our Video Game movie list?

This week on the podcast, we're adding one of the games from the first wave of indies in the early 2010s. Limbo brought us great level design, sound design and a gloriously thick a e s t h e t i c. The puzzle platformer from Playdead showed what the indie scene was capable at the time. Where did it land on our Endless List of games?
This week on the podcast, we're adding the first game in the series from Sega's second mascot and first mascot platformer, Alex Kidd in Miracle World. We explore the origin of Alex Kidd, the gameplay, the story, the music, the graphics and so much more as we add it to our Endless List of Video Games. Where did it land on the Endless List?
This week we prove our credo that we will add every game ever to the Endless List as we add NBA 2K13 specifically the Nintendo Wii version to the Endless List of Video Games. This is the last game in the series made for Nintendo platforms until the advent of the Switch. It's got a lot of motion controls! It's got piss poor graphics! But it's pretty fun! Where did it land on the Endless List?
