Episode 33 – Location Test

This is, without a doubt, our favorite episode yet.

Dave sat down with legendary game designer Sal DiVita and went¬†over his amazing career. For those unfamiliar, Sal helped invent the Action Sports genre with the team at Midway Games, creating NBA Jam and NFL Blitz, before moving onto Psi-Ops, TNA Impact! and many others. Sal talks about what it was like to work on Coin-Op hardware, what it’s like to be a perfectionist, and what he’s up to currently.

Episode 32 – Dave interviews Tom Carbone

If you love Darryl-heavy episodes you might as well turn back now. This is not the episode you are looking for.

If, on the other hand, you enjoy hearing video game development stories from days long past, you’re in luck.

Episode 30 – PAX East 2015 Part 2

The guys start off this episode with some insider PAXAMANIA talk…and also how Dave screwed Darryl out of meeting Swery (sorry!). Then they take listeners on a brief tour of Boston’s Chinatown (it’s very nice, actually), before Dave reveals one of his friends is in fact an awful, awful person. They wrap up their prepared remarks with a lot of talk about Dragons Age and Destiny, before wrapping the show with some emails where Dave learns that his random criticisms re:Canada do, in fact, hurt.

Come for the laughs stay for the giant Lang head.
