Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 3 – Toad’s been reading leftist literature

Third time’s a charm. This week our Featured Game is Super Mario 3D World, for the (technically still current gen) WiiU. Also in this rambunctious episode, Rob tells the saga of moving to his new home, while GLB brand ambassador AC had a guest spot on the CAPMAX Hypecast! Plus we find that child labour is profitable, UnReal World is a weird game, Toad is a commie and heavy metal bands have very similar names to ’90s FPS games. Who knew?!

AC’s Collection 2016

 

So it turns out AC is a hoarder. I mean retro gamer. (I mean hoarder.) Join us as we descend into the warped mind of AC and check out some of the “cool” stuff that he owns. I’m sure it will be “fun.” Hope you brought a packed lunch!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 2 – Press the C Button to Fart

This week we cast our minds back to the most bodacious and radical year of them all, 1987, to reminisce about the best sports game of all time, California Games. Also in this ribald episode, Rob pitches an original new video game IP, while AC discusses seeing John Cleese and Eric Idle live, and then confesses to drugging his father and making him play arcade games. Plus we insult the entire nation of America and serve up the usual quiz and other garbage. Video games are wild!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 1 – Hot and Spicy Politics

Oh dear Lord no, somehow the authorities let Rob and AC record podcasts again! It’s episode 1 of Game/Life Balance Australia, but don’t call this a comeback, we’ve been here for years! For our reboot episode, we take some time to explain what the heck happened while we were away, why we changed the name of the podcast, and our international conspiracy with our American pals Cody and Jon. For our Featured Game, we delve into the mysteries of Capcom’s Alien vs Predator, while in our Game/Life segment Rob spends 20 minutes complaining about being a dad and then tries to convince AC that he’s actually really happy about the whole thing. Plus AC spills the beans on his MAME cabinet, ruining its resale value, and Rob describes his time playing the adorable puzzle-platformer Unravel. Finally we end with a quiz that was probably way too clever for this show to begin with. GLB is back baby!
