Hope you're all doing well during lockdown, cuz we're trying to find games to keep us entertained that aren't CoD or ACNH. This week, Caty played a bit of the (still mostly embargoed) Xenoblade Chronicles remaster, while Josh tried out the new Streets of Rage joint. Then we dig through a pile of listener questions, diving into games vs film, annoyi…
 
Take a break from taking a break and join us as we discuss all the biggest games of the season. We're taking a deeper dive into FF7 Remake from a FF7 newcomer's perspective, Call of Duty Warzone, more ACNH, board games, and Anno 1800, which is way better than the screenshots would ever have you believe. We're also answering listener questions about…
 
We break quarantine to hang out with Austin Walker (Waypoint Radio, Friends at the Table) and discuss some of the biggest games of the month - Final Fantasy VII Remake, which captures at least some of the magic of the original, and Animal Crossing New Horizons, which has been softening our brains into mush for almost a month now. We wrap up with so…
 
We are on lockdown and we are obsessed with Animal Crossing, just like you are (perhaps). Here's us talking about it for an hour and a half. We try to keep the spoilers to a minimum, and do our best to give you a little warning when we're gonna drop the names of objects and functions we've acquired. BAD END is proud to be part of SUPERCULTURE, a ne…
 
Take a load off from your days of isolation and come hang with the BAD END crew as we talk about the new Call of Duty, Ori, and CoD. We're also delving into the specifics of taste and our perspective on videogame crit. BAD END is proud to be part of SUPERCULTURE, a network of podcasts and websites dedicated to the underobserved. Tweet us @supercult…
 
One of us went to PAX East, one of us is playing a game under embargo, and one of us played a bunch of beloved games that are no longer protected by the sheen of newness. We discuss the Metroidvania frustrations of Hollow Knight, the woes of min-maxing in Noita, and Animal Crossing's influence. BAD END is proud to be part of SUPERCULTURE, a network…
 
With one co-host gone this week, the remaining two end up shooting the breeze for like 2 hours straight in this one. We discuss the new Dragonball Z game, we rag on Ori and the Blind Forest, we talk about Slay The Spire and the concept of "perfunctory" game mechanics, and we answer a very, very long list of listener questions. We've also got a fun …
 
dramatic voice Wherein lies the magic of videogames? Is it in the understated brilliance of Kentucky Route Zero? Is it in the schoolyard fantasies of Magic: The Gathering brought to digital life? Is it on The Beach being snatched up by the beak of a seagull? Or is it somewhere else? Join us on BAD END 67 as we attempt to find the answer in an unlik…
 
A thought: maybe "influential" is not a net positive when assessing a game's quality! We talk about the idea while discussing AGDQ and digging through our backlogs. Kyle enjoys The Witcher 3 despite living in a post-Disco Elysium world, Caty is surprised at how well FFVII holds up, and Josh finally gets to unleash his inner hacker with Quadrilatera…
 
To wrap up the decade, we're joined by Ben Pack of Giant Bomb and talking about our favorite games of the 2010s.

BAD END is proud to be part of SUPERCULTURE, a network of podcasts and websites dedicated to the underobs…
 
You might know Tim Rogers as any number of things: a pioneer of "New Videogame Journalism," a prolific game developer, a video personality, an industry consultant, a friend of Suda51, Mr. Rogers' relative, a CPA. He is all of those things, and that's why he's uniquely qualified to talk about all of the videogame-related things that happened this de…
 
Indie games have come a long way from their roots as a way to spite Roger Ebert (kidding!), and we've teamed up with rebind.io founder Emily Rose (@caravanmalice) to discuss the decade in indie, from "AA" hits to powerful "micro-indies." We explore the impact of influencers, the birth/death/resurrection of indie game journalism, the importance of p…
 
A new Pokemon game is out, so we're asking the question that everyone asks when a new Pokemon game comes out: Is it the Pokemon game I've always dreamed about? We also discuss the weird lack of hype surrounding Half-Life: Alyx, which when you think about it, should be the most hyped game of the decade. Finally, we wrap our conversation on Death Str…
 
It's here. The new Kojima game. Death Stranding. Secure your cargo straps, crack open your Monster Energies, slap that blood bag, and come along as we delve deep into this ~generational phenomenon~ of a game. Then we've got a grab bag - the new Hearthstone game mode and how terrible we are for playing it, some snazzy new board games, Guitar Hero vs…
 
Outer Worlds. Modern Warfare. Disco Elysium. It's Big Game season, folks, and this week we've got some of the heaviest hitters of the year. Listen to us talk about why Disco Elysium is awesome, why Outer Worlds is the videogame equivalent of a limp pool noodle, and why Modern Warfare is at least a 7.5. Special thanks to our Patreon subscribers, and…
 
This week, BAD END is joined by a special guest - San Francisco Chronicle food critic Soleil Ho (@hooleil). As a fellow gamer, Soleil talks to us about the parallels between food and videogame consumption and criticism, her love for Harvest Moon, and the importance of evaluating games and food in their social contexts. After that, we discuss the in…
 
Usually we have a few games to play between episodes of BAD END, but this week we had more than 50 thrust upon us with the launch of Apple Arcade. We talk about some of the highlights, like the rhythmless rhythm game Sayonara Wild Hearts and the hilarious What the Golf. We're also talkin' Goose Game, Bloodstained, Apex, and Destiny. Special thanks …
 
So there’s a bunch of new games coming out and we’re doing our best to play them all, but sometimes you don’t have time to tack a Borderlands 3 onto your massive game log. That being said, we’re playing the crap out of Overland, Creature in the Well, and Gears 5 (sorta). We also talk about Apple Arcade, Disco Elysium hype, board game store ecosyste…
 
It's Bad End 55, and this episode we're talking about Control, the new game from Remedy that's incredible - but with a few caveats we can't quite get over. Then we discuss Telling Lies, that new FMV joint from Sam Barlow (Her Story) - a game whose main character might be a little too good at acting pissed off. Finally, Caty goes deep on Ancestors: …
 
This week, we're joined by videogame critic/journalist Cameron Kunzelman of Vice Games, Paste, and Kotaku (among many others). We pick apart Dragon Quest Builders 2 and the still-beating heart of crafting games, the 8-person multiplayer game Project Winter, and the lizard-brain capitalist appeal of card games. From there, we take a deep dive into c…
 
WHAT is UP everyone it's Bad End podcast episode 53, this time featuring the academically-minded internet personality Mike Rugnetta (@mikerugnetta on Twitter).

Bad End 52. We've got that new Wolfenstein: Youngblood joint, where you play co-op as BJ's daughters to kill nazis in the 80s. Then we're talking Mario Maker 2 and the joys of playing through a theoretically-infinite number of new Mario levels (even if it doesn't work out that way in practice.) Finally, we're meditating more on Teamfight Tactics, w…
 
Now wise and grizzled in the aftermath of our 50th episode, BAD END is back, and this time we're joined by intrepid reporter Luke Winkie (@luke_winkie on Twitter) to talk about Autochess games, The Metroidvania Discourse, Apex Legends, and whether or not it's a good idea to colonize mars. Special thanks to our Patreon subscribers, and shout out to …

We're back as a trio, and this week we're serving up the latest in gaming drama: a new little handheld console called Playdate that lit the indie community on fire this past week. We're also talking about Oculus Quest, which is awesome, Katana Zero, which is dope, and Steamworld Quest, which... meh. Special thanks to our Patreon subscribers, and sh…

Sit down, crack open a beer or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice, and talk games with the Bad End crew, baby.

Two weeks have passed since BAD END 41, and much has happened. Josh has continued his descent into Apex Legends obsession. Devotion, a Taiwanese horror game, became the hottest sensation on Twitch and was promptly "cancelled" for including a satirical asset that flared up some geopolitical conflict. Sad, since it might be the best walking simulator…
 
Squad up and join us on this week's BAD END for the new Battle Royale that's sweeping the nation: Apex Legends! We talk about the game's gunfeel, online play, the rapid proliferation of Apex culture, and meme appeal. Then we discuss Kingdom Hearts 3, which, for Josh at least, was a bit of a disappointment. To end things, we've got reader mail about…
 
Josh is gallivanting in Japan so Caty and Kyle take the time to finally talk about videogames for adults, like Fortnite.

As "mature" gamers, we miss out on a lot of big gaming trends. In order to correct that, we've recruited Josh's little brother to talk with us about what today's teens are into. We discuss the future of single-player games, esports, speedrunning, high school gaming cliques, and the elephant in the room: Fortnite. 0:44 - High School Gamers 17:31 - S…
 
Happy New Year everyone. Bad End is back. This week, we're talking about Smash Bros and the continual out-of-touchness of fighting games.

Listen, share, and give us so…

There's a lot of games coming out this month, but you know what? Sometimes... even we gamers lose that spark in our hearts that tells us we MUST GAME 24/7. We burn out. We cruise along. We play one game on-and-off for months at a time. We stare slack-jawed at our Steam backlogs wondering if we ever enjoyed games at all. We worry that our love for g…
