59 – Deadliest Warrior w. Mitchell Sanregret & Dustin Meisinger

WHO? IS? DEADLIEST?

Mitchell Sanregret & Dustin Meisinger are here to talk about a show with a dope premise and a fizzle of a finish: it’s Deadliest Warrior!

We run through all 33 match-ups as Mitch & Dustin try to remember or guess who was the deadliest warrior – at least as the show/Slitherine Studios was concerned. Not only that but we also discuss the video game Chivalry‘s mod for Deadliest Warrior; the definitive gaming experience for this series.

24 – The Legend of Zelda w. Celeste Birzgalis

Hey! Listen! Celeste Birzgalis is here for a full retrospective on The Legend of Zelda franchise!

We work our way through the 15+ entry video game series, falling into tangents and whatnot throughout the way. We suss out what makes a successful game, in our own opinions, be it story, gameplay, or presentation. And of course we have a grand ol’ time trying to figure out the timeline and some of the weirdness of the Zelda series.

So hopefully you enjoy our incredibly nerdy, feature-length discussion of some of our favourite games. You can find more amazing nerdy things at Celeste’s cosplay page here (https://www.facebook.com/LinktotheCharizardCosplay/).

12 – Video Games & Speedruns w. Lance Mudryk

In the chair today is none other than video game speedrunner, among other things, Lance Mudryk. He’s here to give us a crash course on the Speedrun community: what they do, why they do it, and how one goes from casual gamer to shaving seconds off a GoldenEye run.

We define a bunch of video game terms, discuss why speedrunners tend to focus on older/retro games, and reminisce about Justin.tv – or as you younglings might now it as Twitch.

If you’d like to take a look at Lance’s first world record you can do so here (https://rankings.the-elite.net/~Taber/time/143194) or see all of his Speedrun-goodness here (https://rankings.the-elite.net/~Taber).
