Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 11 – True Grit is good

With AC out of commission this week, Rob drags in a special guest to fill his extremely large, stinky shoes: Cody Gough, host of Game/Life Balance US! In this wide-ranging episode Rob and Cody do a lot of learning together. For example, we learn that without AC the show will run really really really REALLY long. Yep it’s nearly 2 hours of Rob and Cody this week so sorry about that… Actually, why I am apologizing to you, you’re getting 1 hour and 44 minutes of free entertainment. You should be more grateful you little twerp! We also learn other things too, like Rogue Legacy (our Featured Game for this week) is quite good, the origin story of the Game/Life Balance brand, Australia is a terrifying hellscape full of murderous animals who want to kill you, the amount of farms per capita in our respective lands, and the Cohen brothers remake of True Grit is a good movie. Game/Life Balance Australia is the podcast that makes learning fun!

Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 10 – Stream of Nonsense #2 – The Breakfast Show with Fat Mike and The Weasel

Mothers, lock your daughters away because gosh darn it if it ain’t Stream of Nonsense time again. This week Rob is unusually coherent because he’s on antibiotics that prevent him from drinking. Yay! In this whale of an episode we discuss narrative dissonance in Skyrim, muse on the pitfalls of parenthood, reflect on how the hype for DOOM effected our impressions of the game, brainstorm new ways to insult and upset Jonathan Martin, and reminisce on our favourite childhood TV shows, coming to the eventual conclusion that some stones are best left unturned. Plus AC builds a crib, Rob has a sore throat (poor diddums), and there’s also a quiz at the end if you can last the distance.

PS: congrats to AC who, following the recording of this stupid episode, is now a new happy pappy daddy doo doo!
