Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 36 – A Crudely-Drawn Cartoon Dog

This week, AC draws a bad drawing, and it’s all Rob’s fault. Plus we discuss Kira Kira Star Night DX, a new game for the Famicom that someone actually bothered to put onto a cartridge and sell in stores! What a time to be alive. Plus Rob  shares pro strats for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, then admits he has yet to win a single game, while AC has been busy modding his Wii. And then we wrap it up with a genuinely fun music-themed quiz!

Speaking of music, why not throw us a bone and go check out meandmyshadow.rocks, the website for our pals Me and My Shadow, who made the intro music for our dumb show. Do it you bastards!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 35 – Stream of Nonsense #5 – You be the bait!

It’s Steam of Nonsense time once more, and the lads are brimming with ribald humour for your ear holes to absorb and for the demon in your head to turn into brain pictures for your imagination to enjoy! This week Rob has been playing the Duo mode in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, while AC has finished playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and is enjoying having his family back in Australia. Also in this stupid episode, the boys discuss crocodile DNA, Steve Irwin’s untimely demise, hunting Mr. T for sport, Cody Gough’s anger issues, AC as the model Australian, Blondey McBlondeFace, sexist impersonations of the opposite gender, Mickey Mouse’s enema, BitSeizure memories, the inevitable disastrous end to this podcast, parental sacrifices, whether having kids is a bad idea, and Harrison Ford swiping stuff from the set of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Fantastique!

Our theme music for the show was loving handcrafted for us by two humans from the United States by the name of Me and My Shadow.  Check out their musical stylings on the world wide weebs at www.MeAndMyShadow.rocks or soundcloud.com/me-and-my-shadow

Game/Life Gaiden – Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Link and Zelda cosplay

In this very special Gaiden episode, AC joins two American types, Cody Gough, host of the Game/Life Balance US podcast, and Chris Ferrell of the All Things Good and Nerdy podcast, to discuss the mystery and magic of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That’s right, it’s an international collaboration baby! And the best part is, I didn’t have to record it or edit it or anything which is basically like heaven for me. So put on your sexy green leggings and grip your master sword tightly as the lads take a very deep dive into one of the best games of 2017 and discuss exactly what makes it so darn wonderful.

If you liked hearing Cody talk – and let’s face it who doesn’t (except Uncle Stabbo) – you can check out all their awesome Game/Life Balance US podcasts at www.gamelifebalance.us.

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 34 – The Wall

This week our intrepid heroes jumped out of a perfectly good plane and fell headlong into an island of murderous lunatics. Also we played Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds a bit. So join us as we share our thoughts on its ups and downs in our Featured Game segment! In our Game/Life Balance segment, AC’s balance swings solidly in favour of life after beating The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in time for the (hopeful) return of his family from Japan, while Rob is on leave and has been spending his time building a wall in Fallout 4. Plus the usual poorly-conceived quiz and constant unsavoury jokes – hurrah!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 33 – Silent Breakfasts

Put on your ninja masks and keep an eye on your stealth meter because good gosh with gravy it’s another episode of Game/Life Balance Australia! This time our featured game is the beloved arcade beat ’em up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Toitles (the only acceptable pronunciation). Plus Rob shares his new sneaky morning ritual, while AC has been stealthily hunting for an elusive PC Engine EverDrive. And to wrap it all up, Rob unleashes the most evil quiz ever devised by a human mind. So if you enjoy listening to AC suffering then you will enjoy this one quite a bit – I know I certainly do!

Our intro music is way way better than we deserve, and was put together by two crude dudes from the USA who go by the name of Me And My Shadow. So do yourself a favour and check out all their other stuff at www.MeAndMyShadow.rocks or soundcloud.com/me-and-my-shadow

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 32 – Man Flu of the Butt

Yeah that’s right we’re still making these. Largely out of spite. But if you’re still listening then you’re in for a gosh darn treat because our featured game this week is a genuine stone cold classic, the arcade beat ’em up par excellence, Double Dragon! We cover the original arcade version plus the various home console ports, including our beloved Master System port and the downright shoddy NES port too. Plus in our Game/Life segment Rob tells us a tale of nappy rash woes, while AC has been sinking all of his copious free time into Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And in honour of Bimmy and Jimmy our quiz this week is all about ports! So that should be fun or at least tolerable shouldn’t it?!

Our theme music (which let’s face it is better than we deserve) is made by two charming gentlemen from the US who go by the name of Me and My Shadow. Check out all their fine musical stylings at MeandMyShadow.rocks! Do it now. NOW.

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 31 – Thrust the wand, milk the cow

AC is back again from the land of the rising sun, just in time to record another episode of your least favourite podcast! So hop on board the hype train with us for what I like to call a “pity listen,” as we delve into the Nintendo Switch game that literally everyone is talking about! In our Balance segment Rob shares tales of his adventures in the Wasteland, while AC shares tales of his adventures in the exotic lands of the East. Plus there’s a poorly-constructed quiz and the usual constant homo-erotic sexual innuendo that you’ve all come to know and love. Fantastique!

The Game/Life Balance Australia theme is the fruit of the loins of two lovely boys from the America, Me and My Shadow. Check out their other musical stylings at www.meandmyshadow.rocks!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 30 – Stream of Nonsense #6 – Morlock Fan Art

Another of the Queen’s fortnights has come and gone, and because the number of this podcast is divisible by 5 it’s time once more to snuggle up with your hairy pals Rob and AC for another foray into the darkest recesses of the human mind that we like to call Stream of Nonsense! In this calamitous episode: AC has to travel to Japan AGAIN, and Rob quits social media and wonders whether in doing so he is a trailblazer or a luddite. Plus: guys need a lot of time on the toilet, red light districts are closer than you think, Rob has a time travelling time travel machine (for time travelling), AC ponders purchasing a Switch, and we wax poetical on the joys of 2D platformers.

The Game/Life Balance Australia theme music was loving hand crafted using locally sourced sound waves by the outstandingly talented Me and My Shadow. Check out all their other stuff at www.meandmyshadow.rocks and soundcloud.com/me-and-my-shadow

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 29 – Dear President Abe

This week the boys dived into the dumpster of video game history and came out with the Sega Saturn version of Street Fighter: The Movie. And by that we mean the game based on the movie based on another different game. Is your head hurting yet? Well it sure will be after listening to this podcast, wherein Rob shares his brilliant new strategy for getting PC games on the cheap, and wherein AC complains that there weren’t enough panty shots in Pretty Fighter X. Plus we play AC’s favourite quiz of all time ever which he loves more than his own family. I give this podcast 17 thumbs up!

The Game/Life Balance Australia theme was dreamed up by two dreamy boys from the United States, Me and My Shadow. Check out their other stuff at www.meandmyshadow.rocks and soundcloud.com/me-and-my-shadow

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 28 – The Parrot Sketch

Everyone seems to be talking about Zelda these days, and in this episode your high-larious hosts Rob and AC eagerly jump on that bandwagon like a couple of talentless hacks to discuss the Gameboy classic, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Plus Rob hasn’t been playing any games, and AC went to the movies. We also have a fun new quiz so that’s good isn’t it? And if you’re wondering why we’re late again this week, Rob just forgot to edit it. That’s right, he forgot that this podcast is a thing. Such a disappointment, that lad.
