OH NO! There's a new flagship which means we could waste no time in bringing you everyone's favorite digestible audio content: the Flagship Tournament. This year the rules are even more arbitrary and honestly I edit over a lot of it, so just...you just hang in there okay? Also there is a video of this exact same episode that you may find more consu…
 
We're still hanging out in the late 90s and early 2000s with more arcadey classics! This week was almost Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, but we JUST did a PS1 game, and 3 is better anyways, dangit! This is one of Matt's favorite sports games and something Hunter has little to no fondness for! Is this a game for skaters or is it a corporate sell out? Can …
 
Codex 3: Vigil is finally proven to be real and we were (mostly) not lying! The biggest introduction is the 25th faction to Twilight Imperium, The Council Keleres. So rather than give you an episode overviewing the codex, this topic is big enough to break away and just sit down to theorycraft what we think will be the right moves to make with the K…
 
Matt and Hunter were in the same place for a weekend, which is why you're getting a few episodes in a row of this particular era and breed of video game. This time, it's one from Hunter's childhood, vehicular car combat legend Twisted Metal 2. So many things about this game are "out-dated," but does that make it bad, or does that make it a product …
 
The Galactic Council is being a bit self-indulgent this month. This episode is detailing the exploits of the very chaotic Community Plays TI discord server. Set up to allow multiple people to simultaneously operate one faction in a play by forum format, these games immediate devolve into memes and inexplicable choices and we are all the better for …
 
It's time to get cool again and talk about one of those college dorm classics: GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64. There are a lot of folks out there who hold this game firmly in their nostalgia, and today we're here to tell them to let it go. This one can die and be a historical event. We also bring back crowd favorite as well as introduce highly a…
 
The Root Winter Tournament has been going on since November of 2021, and it finally has a Championship match in sight. To celebrate and prepare you all to go check out that game, we brought on Guerric and Lily to walk us through how the tournament has gone so far and what Root even looks like these days! Turns out the game keeps getting smarter and…
 
This one is a stone cold classic straight out of Matt's Nostalgia Bag. Is it the perfect Kirby game? Can such a thing exist? Does Hunter have any room left in his big video game noggin for this pink cutie? Am I going to keep asking questions until I feel like this episode description is sufficiently long? Yes. Music by nightcorey. https://soundclou…
 
We wanted to get nostalgic and talk about how far we've come. What was going to be a general overview decided to get more narrow. So today, we're talking about the history of 3rd Edition and how it improved on what came before but also paved the path for 4th Edition. We'd love to give the same treatment going forward to 2nd and 1st edition, so cons…
 
Well today is a weird one. Matt has come a long way in his relationship with difficulty and frustration and this is a chance to put that to the test. But the real test is the fact that Hunter is actually playing and trying to beat Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy for the first time while recording the episode. Experience the highs and the lows in…
 
The kind of content we design for newer players changes over time, and this particular episode is probably a long time overdue. As the community has grown and analysis has solidified, a lot of terms have started to stick in place. Some of them are logical expressions of ideas, some of them or horrible tangentially related jokes about a concept. Non…
 
The darkness. The light. The heart. The chains. The shoes. Is this the most important episode of the show? Probably. Donald Duck is like a wizard and Goofy is a knight? Shut up and quit asking questions. Come for the Disney, stay for the clothes and pop music. It's time for us to embark on our Kingdom Hearts journey. Theme by nightcorey. https://so…
 
We're continuing our investigation of the Vuil'raith Cabal, and today seemed like a good chance to do a progress report. We come to you not with highly analyzed takeaways, but instead a handful of notes and anecdotes that we're gradually using to build a case for Cabal. Think of this like us "showing our work" when it comes to experimenting with fa…
 
Wowee, what a treat. Our dearest friend and board game designer Dane is here to present the upcoming release of Codex 3: Vigil! There's a slew of new things packed in it, most notably an ENTIRE NEW FACTION. We cover it all in some broad strokes, and reveal a few specific components. This is slated to drop later in April, which we had too much fun w…

We're digging through the early Nintendo 64 catalog today with one of the earliest big Star Wars video game projects. Lauded as a movie without a movie, Shadows of the Empire had the full backing of Lucasfilm to be cross-media success. There's a lot of history to this game that is somewhat lost to time and will that be enough to carry it in our stu…
 
This is a Galactic Council episode. I repeat, this is a Galactic Council episode. There are many, many places out there where you can get this kind of content, but today you're stuck with these two idiots. I would say that no one asked for this, but turns out a sizable enough percentage of patrons did, so here we are. Here's some top 10 lists from …

Today is the splendid arcade classic from Arkansas' own Dona Bailey! Centipede by Atari has such an original look and feel that it easily stands out from so many games at the arcades of old. Good arcades are hard to find these days, but if you can find this cabinet in good condition, it's absolutely worth the time! Music by nightcorey. https://soun…

Are you a new or experience player trying to find a new group to play with? Or are you scheduling a game and decided to invite a new friend to join your typical group? Maybe you're looking to play online for the first time casually or in a tournament. Well we hope this episode can be a resource for you. In it we discuss what it's like to join a gam…
 
There are a lot of genres this show has yet to tap and it's honestly a crime that it took us this long to do a stealth game. But boy, we're gonna go ahead and come out strong with IO Interactive's 2016 revival of the Hitman series, the kick off of the World of Assassination trilogy that you can acquire ALL of now as part of a Hitman 3 super collect…
 
Enter "Season....3? 4. 3?" It's a new arc of the show where we, you guessed it, dive deep into the board game Twilight Imperium. How deep? Well now we plan to do cover a single faction over the course of numerous weeks. We don't anticipate every faction getting the same structure, but we're starting with Vuil'raith Cabal and they're in a bit of a r…
 
We're returning to the NES for the first time since our flagship episode about a significantly more well known game. Journey to Silius is a game famous amongst a certain generation but it's memory has been lost to time for many. So, can this game stand up to the resurrection? Or will we have to hire a machine to go back in time and kill it before i…
 
Elden Ring is the game everyone is talking about and we want to feel included! The structure of this show prevents us from probably doing an episode on this game for many months because we would like to have both actually played it, but we didn't want that to stop us from getting to ignorantly yell about it. So join us on this journey as we all sta…
 
This coming weekend will conclude the massive 2022 Patreon Tournament Qualifiers. 480 players have competed in 80 games and now those winners will match up against our 136 players who received a bye into the Prelims. So how will those Prelim games differ from the Qualifiers? And more important, how is one expected to WIN one of those confounded gam…
 
It's been all peaks and valleys this last month over here on OGA, and we round it off with top billing: Katamari Damacy. This is a deeply original game that checks every box. Level Design, atmosphere, humor, music. It's all rolled up in there and the mass is quickly breaking beyond the scope of the list. This game is the barometer by which we estab…
 
The Galactic Council chose the right option this month! The Qualifiers have been raging in the background and we haven't done any sort of overview of how it's been going. But Stads over at The Qualifier Report has been keeping up with EVERYTHING and is here to spill the details. We chat statistics, share some stories, tell you some of the best game…
 
It's our first venture into a proper fighting game and we lead with a tragic story from Matt's past. It's the genesis of Matt's anger towards video games and the game that turned him off of fighting games. Will nostalgia redeem this derivative classic?
