They tried to kill it…but it was beyond all science! Yes, former hosts of THE PURE MOOD PODCAST celebrate their triumphant return with an all new video game podcast! Every week, join Erik Robinson and Zane – sometimes known as the Man With No Voice – as they discuss all things gaming – from the classics to the contemporary, from the human faces behind the games to the nostalgic memories that keep us playing to celebrations and satires of the medium we love. ARCADE TIRED is the video game comedy podcast the regular folk ain’t ready for!
05:10 – 09:00 – Microsoft Helpline is here for you.
09:00-26:18 – RARE is maybe possibly kinda making a new CONKER or BANJO or other video game, the PS4 promises 30+ titles by the end of the year, and Zane continues to ride the Microsoft roller coaster of H.A.T.E.
26:18 – 47:25 – To make our parents as proud as possible, Zane and Erik offer a review of the twelfth episode of the 2003 FOX series F-ZERO GP LEGEND – ‘Flashback’! Racing, orphans and space pirates have never been such a cruel siren song.
47:25 – 52:03 – WoW, trolls!
52:03 – 1:00:00 – Feel life getting you down? Are the unbearable pressures of the modern world causing you panic and alarm at every corner? Do you crave the safe, comforting memories of your childhood days? Sometimes, you have to call a friend and reminiscence about when the world seemed to be a brighter place. Like in 2002 when they made an FPS about time-traveling gingerbread men.
1:00:00 – 1:30:00 – Look, we’ve been over this – video games are made by people! People like you or me! No, it’s not magic, listen, I can show you photographs of – no, it only looks like that character did that because of programmers and animators and – no, sorcery wasn’t involved in any way, that’s just… This week, two guys named David start off as innovative designers and end up changing the way the business world thinks about games.
