For reasons that you don’t understand, YouTube’s Alex Rubens slams into your room/office/car and starts bumping “The Boys Are Back In Town.” You thank him for his contribution to The Culture, then notice there’s a new Team GFB Radio after a bit of a dry spell. You download it, and now, inexplicably, here we all are. You press play.
No notes! Suck it!
The guys are at it again! Darryl talks about his plans for Memorial Day weekend, and Dave recaps his visit to Japan. In emails, Andrew sent in an update on his cross-country trip that he first wrote the show about way back in Episode #59, which is pretty crazy.
At the time of recording it was right before Mother’s Day, and the guys have plans, big plans! None of these plans, however, are enough to stop them from discussing the big news of the week! Dave and Darryl talk at length about the Square-Enix/IOI split and ponder about the fate of HITMAN. In other, less important news: Dave is ready for his 5k, and he went to Dallas for 3 days and saw some cool stuff.
NO NOTES THIS WEEK HOLD THAT L NERDS
They guys are back for more hot Zelda talk, and if you’re interested in the nitty-gritty details of why Dave’s kids are grounded, have we got a podcast for you! On top of that Darryl talks Puyo Puyo Tetris, Mario Kart and even more vidja games.
Oh, and they guys met DA HOOP GAWD, nbd.
Another show with no real theme, or overarching agenda. Just a random grab bag of shit. There’s some hip-hop in there, more Zelda talk, Dave getting screwed out of some great shoes and a hoodie, Osmo, and emails!
The guys close out the show with a BEEFY S-Town spoilercast, so if you’ve listened to that, check that out for our basic-ass thoughts on the podcast.
Please excuse that the GFB in the title of this show isn’t the same one we used on the show. They are just both that good, couldn’t doom one to history’s scrap pile. Sue us (me).
Darryl is out of pocket this week, so Dave brings Travel Bestie Kelly Wallick on for ANOTHER ONE. They chat about that X12 life, The Sims, Nioh, and the Star Trek podcast Kelly and Dave have been workshopping (but never actually recorded) for a bit. Please send us your feedback, so we can ignore it.
The guys are all over the map on this show, but there is some video game talk nestled in there (Nioh, Ghost Recon) if you’re into that. Look, I’ll be honest. When we record shows without cohesive themes it’s really difficult to construct meaningful, bespoke show notes. Listen to this show and try it for yourself. It’s legit pretty tough!
