Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 24 – The Bart, The

AC is in Japan, so what does he do with all of his time in this land of fascinating culture? He watches old Simpsons episodes and plays video games inside of course! (Duh…)

This episode Andrew is joined by special guest Andrew..Lynch. That’s confusing, let’s call him by his nickname “L-chan”. He loves that. AC and L-chan talk about the newly released information on the Nintendo Switch, the Japanese Switch event, gambling fake money in Salty’s Dream Casino and why anyone would actually want to buy a Neo Geo AES console (Hint: I *REALLY* wanted one!)

This episode’s featured game is Worms WMD, an actual modern game (that plays like all the older Worms games, that’s a good thing. Trust me) and AC quizzes his guest co-host with “Was it a Console?”

Oh, and the Simpsons comes up a little bit. Seriously. That’s all we do.

We watch the Simpsons…

Game/Life Gaiden: AC plays the Famicom Classic Mini

T’was a dark and stormy night… AC was left all on his lonesome in Japan one evening, so he decided to record a Gaiden podcast!

Andrew is in Japan at the moment and managed to get his hands on a Famicom Classic Mini (The Japanese version of the Mini NES), join him as he goes through the library and gives his thoughts on the choice of individual games and the system as a whole!

Go on, give it a listen, it’s good for what ails you!


Game/Life Balance Australia – Episode 23 – Ringing in the New Balance… Year… Sneakers!

Well we made it to the end of 2016, and I’m sure nothing bad will happen in 2017 so we can all feel really relieved and happy, right? So why not join Rob and his lovely, long-suffering wife Meg as they celebrate the new year in style by drinking wine, nibbling hors d’oeuvres and reminiscing on the year that was. What could be more laid back than an Australian summer? Nothing! So we decided to follow suit and do a very laid back podcast for you. So there’s no format, just a married couple chatting for a little less than an hour about the Lego Harry Potter HD remaster for the Playstation 4, plus our personal highlights in 2016 and our plans for 2017. And because there’s no AC in this episode, it’s 25% less funny than normal but 2000% less insufferable, so it kind of balances out.

The Game/Life Balance theme was handcrafted from locally sourced ethically produced musical sounds by the extremely talented bespoke artisanal musicians, Me and My Shadow. Go check out their latest album on bandcamp ( It would make them happy boys.
