Episode 27: Gyrados Jim’s Gyrados Gym for Gyra-Bros

A trainer’s first Pokemon is arguably the most important impact on how their fighting style develops and more importantly how they grow as a trainer and as a person. So naturally, the Pokemon that best map onto our personalities are a goopy snot dragon, a swole fish with large calves, and a metallic pangolin walled off from emotions. Fortunately, Tom Zalatnai from Up for Discussion and Blasting Off Again stopped by to remind us that there is good in the world, and that a Pokemon can be used to improve society and are not just for Instagram fan pages.

Episode 26: Butt Thwomp Nation

Despite the fact that we’ve made it abundantly clear that we don’t know Science, our field team at Debate This Labs are studying the various colors of Yoshis to answer one very important question: Which color of Yoshi is the best? Is it the fire-breathing red yoshi, the flying blue yoshi, or the butt-thwomping yellow yoshi? There can only be one champion in the ensuing Yoshi Race Wars, because those are the imaginary stakes we’ve established today.

Episode 25: Hold That Conference Call, I’m Jungling!

We here at Debate This Corp, LLC, want to make a game but we don’t really know anything about game development. But there is one thing we do know about, and that’s Corporate America. So we would like to present to you, dear listener, our pitch for a massively-multiplayer online RPG based in the world of 9-5 office jobs. You know how cool it is to shoot fireballs from your hands? Well what if instead of fireballs, those were witty social media posts and JIRA tickets?

Episode 24: Talkin' Tungsten

It is the year 20XX. Gigantic monsters have appeared from the depths of the Pacific Ocean to wreak havoc, and so our only option is to build larger robots largely themed around specific elements and/or animals to combat them. The only thing standing between us and absolute destruction is the combined power of Flash Man, Guts Man, and Armored Armadillo. We’re screwed.

Episode 23: Burt Belker, Regional Sales Manager and Master of Chaos

The poor DC Cinematic Universe just can’t catch a break. We thought there might be some momentum with Wonder Woman, but then Justice League and Batman vs. Superman happened. So it’s time to force a heel-turn. We’re going to recast some of the more iconic heroes that have had some less-than-stellar appearances at in the theater. Get ready for some new, hot takes on Superman, Green Lantern, and the world’s greatest detective...Man-Bat!

Episode 22: It Takes Two to Orangutango

War. War never changes. Except when the latest Fallout game gets bored with its lack of NPCs and decides to incorporate a hipster gorilla, malicious disembodied hands, and a delusional man shouting about “catching ‘em all.” In addition to our pitch for this new, unofficial DLC, we add to our pantheon of false actor gods.

Episode 21: The Actual Tripp Pants of Shia LaBeouf (ft. Alex Clark)

Kingdom Hearts is the unexpectedly glorious mashup of Disney characters and Final Fantasy. With the release of Kingdom Hearts III fast approaching, we’re going to try and capitalize on its success by creating our own mashups of two beloved franchises. These games have everything: sentient yoga pants, Pyramid Head’s warm apple pies, a sober Johnny Depp, and an uncomfortable amount of zippers.

Episode 20: Enter the Vibration Dimension

It’s the holiday season, so that means it’s time to shower each other with good will and material love. The Debate This! boys are exchanging gifts in the form of crappy third-party gaming peripherals. Have you ever wanted to get kicked in the chest by Scorpion? How about firing a gun with your vocal cords? Santa wouldn't touch this garbage with a ten-foot pole.
