Episode 39: Tom Nook's Strungle in the Jungle (ft. Tom Zalatnai)

For the first stop as part of this year's Spooktacular Express, we're going to visit the delightful and whimsical world of Animal Crossing, where everyone is always happy, smiling, and certainly not murdered. So imagine our surprise when our passengers' visit was cut short by the news that Mayor Tortimer's dead body was found floating in the river covered in stab wounds. And it's up to us to find the killer.

Episode 38: The Spirit of the Baltimore Ravens is To Win

Metal Gear Solid is a very silly game. Please bear that in mind while we explain the premise of this week’s episode is that the military has decided that it’s somehow up to us to stop all the biggest, baddest bosses of the MGS series by unleashing a single Kirby to lead us to victory. So now instead of a flame crown or ice breath, Kirby is going to acquire psychic powers, four tentacle arms, and a really big gun.

Episode 29: In Between Pennywise Thighs

The Top Generals of the World’s Military need our help! The R&D department of Debate ThisI Corp. has been tasked with developing a new weaponized vehicle, so naturally we’re going to pull blueprints from games because that is a totally normal thing to do. Instead of boring old helicopters, how about the AV-49 Wasp from Halo? Why drive that tank when you could fire napalm from a reinforced ice cream truck? Bomber planes not providing the ummph you need? This warp star is guaranteed to provide much more explode-ier results!

Episode 28: Agent Kirby’s Pillow Palace

DC’s Blackest Night arc in the mid-2000s finally accomplished the thing that 30 years of comics preceding it couldn’t—it finally made the Green Lantern cool by adding other Lanterns of different colors of the spectrum. So we decided to overlay some of our favorite Smash Bros characters onto these lesser-known Lanterns to make some truly unstoppable forces. We’ve got a zombified R.O.B. that worships death, an Incineroar with rage-induced bloodfire vomit, and everyone’s favorite eldritch horror, Kirby!

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.

SIDEBAR 4: Undying Light

December 7, 2018 was a big freaking' day y'all.

Since we were all gushing over it all day, we figured we'd get together and record some initial reactions.

Episode 16: Werewolves Don't Always Wear Jorts

Spooktacular Express continues this as we talk about classic movie monsters. In the usual Debate This! flair, we ask ourselves what if old-timey movie monsters got their hands on a video game power-up. We’re serving up a ooky spooky potluck chock full of metal vampires, a Time Lord mummy, and werewolves who just gotta go fast.
