Episode 44: Batman & Blackouts

In the year’s final camp episode Ben and Doba sit in a cabin that slowly and surely just loses all its electricity, leaving them to sit in the dark and talk to a microphone for about two hours. Oh, and Paul Terry shows up a bit too. Don’t worry, Doba didn’t screw up the microphone settings this time.

This week’s big topics include stupid kids at camp, the Professor Layton movie (and how it proves Inspector Groski is the shit), the bunches of anime Doba’s been watching, Santa Claus VS The Devil, Animal Crackers, and of course the new Batman movie.

Oh, and Merry Christmas in July RTM fans!

GUEST APPEARANCES: Paul Terry

ENDING SONG: Space Ducks ~ Daniel Johnston

EASTER EGG(S): Ben reads a comic he doesn’t remember drawing/Merry Christmas in July Decaff and KingKing

Episode 43: Ben Is Better Than Joe Bush At All Things Ever

While the rest of camp staff goes out for cosmic bowling and fun times it seems Ben, Doba, and Joe Bush just don’t feel like being social or fun. So they sit in a Dining Hall to record a podcast. Also, Doba screwed up the microphone settings for this one and it sounds like crap. So be warned…

This week’s big topics include running Rockets, Professor Layton soundtracks, the Jesus Lean, Community season 2, Daily Lives of High School Boys, Mega 64 Version 3, Wanted, Se7en, Sonic Generations, Joe Bush’s Top Ten stuff, Professor Layton & The Last Specter, Wii Sports Resort table tennis, and Namco developing Smash 4.

GUEST APPEARANCES: Joe Bush (of Games&That Podcast)

ENDING SONG: Daddy, Why Did You Eat My Fries? ~ Marceline

EASTER EGG(s): Doba talks about possible future plans

Episode 42: Screeching Songbirds Of Pain

Ben and Doba sit in Cabin 17 on this day recording a podcast with Joe Bush. Clay was gone because Clay is dumb. This is around the point in the summer where we all just get tired as hell so don’t be surprised when we sound exhausted. Because we are. This results in a lot of singing from Ben and Joe, and then Ben abandons us to go talk to people outside, but we don’t blame him so don’t worry.

Also, quick warning: The first half an hour or so of this episode is pretty NSFW. Do not listen to it through loud speakers. Trust me on this one, just… don’t do it.

This week’s big topics include camp changes, Malcolm in the Middle, G4 TV, The Megas and Brentalfloss, new OCRemix songs, Whisper of the Heart, Tales of Earthsea, Clerks, Professor Layton, Ocarina of Time, Dave Mirra’s Freestyle BMX is basically like Morrowind, Final Fantasy IX, Super Mario 3D Land is really easy, and Bubsy 3D.

Oh, and Happy 4th of July American listeners!

GUEST APPEARANCES: Joe Bush (of Games&That Podcast)

ENDING SONG: Agadoo ~ Black Lace

EASTER EGG(S): Doba and Joe Bush kill time while Ben is outside

Fun fact about this episode’s ending song,the chorus is actually a camp song we sing all the time in the Dining Hall. We had no idea it was an actual song until this week when Paul (our cabinmate and Ben’s roommate) found it. So that’s pretty cool.

Episode 41: RECORDING BREAKS ARE GO!

Oops, were we supposed to record these in one solid run? Cause that didn’t happen this week! This episode was recorded in Cabin 17 at the same time that Games&That was recording their podcast across Staff Village in Cabin 4. After they finished they burst into our cabin and the space time continuum probably crumbled a little bit.

This week’s big topics include huge classes at camp, The Other Guys, This Is My Jam, lack of free time, Space Jam, Community, water polo, The Colbert Report, Dora’s World Adventure, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Professor Layton & The Curious Village, Atom Zombie Smasher, Toy Story 2: The Game, Bubsy 3D, Crash Bandicoot, awful games, Army Men games, T-Rex, Crab Nicholson, and a Civ II is kept going for ten years.

GUEST APPEARANCES: Paul Terry (sort of), Joe Bush and Clay (of Games&That Podcast), Sam, Marty

ENDING SONG: Must Land Running ~ Stepdad

EASTER EGG(S): None this week, we didn’t have time. Sorry folks.

Episode 40: Read The Game’s Instruction Manual

This year’s first camp episode comes with a title that just does not roll off the tongue at all. It includes guest appearances from an uncontrolled amount of staff members just wandering into good old Cabin 17. Because what are doors and knocking?

Also, we’re now officially a member of the SMYN Network! That’s awesome and we hope you’re as excited about it as we are!

This week’s big topics include us being back at camp, the new SMYN Network, ABBA, Toradora, The Cat Returns, Doomsday Arcade, Breaking 2: Electric Boogaloo, The Grey, Men In Black 3, Troll Hunter, Mr. Show, Harley Quinn’s Revenge, Persona 3, Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, and the return of camp stories.
