Episode 33: Make America Gotta Go Fast...Again

Oh Sonic...our very fast boy with a very complicated past. He’s been a street fighter, an Olympic athlete, a zero gravity surfboard racer, and even a knight facing off against King Arthur. We decided to give everyone’s favorite blue hedgehog yet another second chance by fixing some of Sonic’s more pained gimmicks. Our crack team of armchair-quarterbacking game designers are proposing massive overhauls to Sonic and The Secret Rings, the Werehog, and the edgy ‘dark’ version of Sonic whose power is gun-having.

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.

You can check out Tom’s work and other shows on the Upford Network at upfordnetwork.com.

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.

We’ve got a pitch for you: We follow a pair of couples around with cameras while they shop around for their dream home. We will present them with a series of different types of homes in different neighborhoods around their desired location and people can experience the kinds of things that go through their minds as they make the decision. Oh, that’s already a thing? Well, what if we put these houses in nightmare eldritch hellscapes? Cool.
