26 - The Zone Zapper, by Pod Your Own Adventure

26 - The Zone Zapper (With Dan, Max and Titas)

Hello, weary adventurer! Come with me, Dan, Max and Titas on a trip to Mobius so we can see how much of a pillock Sonic the Hedgehog really is. The last book we read by these authors, we came to the conclusion that they’ve never played a Sonic game. The new one, well…

Over the course of this book we discuss moral relativism, game mechanics as expressed through text, and who you can really call an ally in this messed up world. Also at one point my internet cuts out and everybody starts talking about this hot mess.

The intro and outro music is Sport Acapulco by Man and Birdmen, and the cover art for this episode was created by Titas himself. If you want to support the podcast you can help us out on Patreon and get access to a lot of great perks. If you would like to attend the live show, details are available right here!

Ode to Greed (techno remix), by OVERKILL Soundtracks

if you know me, i’ve probably spent a good while hollering about how fantastic the payday 2 soundtrack is to you over the last year or so. i think this track added a couple of patches ago is probably my favourite out of the entire lot.

this track comes from the Big Bank level, in which you take down an enormous bank—you can see just how enormous from the Big Bank trailer overkill put out to tease the DLC. however, the soundtrack for payday 2 is usually loud electronic beats and wonderful drums mixed with grungy and driving guitars and bass, so when this trailer came out backed with a (custom-penned by simon viklund, the game’s composer, as it turns out) massive opera song i wasn’t really sure what to expect for the actual level!

i played it for the first time the other night and this wonderful remix started playing. it’s completely perfect in every single way and i adore this game’s stupid action movie sensibility and soundtrack



Here's A Lovely Picture

09 - Zone Rangers

The second instalment in the Sonic Saga! Dan and Titas join us again (Lord Mune is really ill right now) and we go on a journey through Moebius and 90s nostalgia. Sonic and Tails respec in this one, but could we have minmaxed harder? Let’s find out.

Here is the drawing of Sonic that Titas sends me halfway through the show. It will all make sense in time.

The intro and outro music is Sport Acapulco by Man and Birdmen, and the cover art was created by Harley.
