I Am You and You Are Me21/01/2019 Duração: 02h04min
As the podcast delves into its official unofficial second season, the cast catches up on their recent gaming forays (which basically means a lot of Ric gushing about mobile/handheld games while Toast and Kerf fish into the hollow recesses of their memories for something to contribute). Stay tuned in a couple weeks' time for Part 2!
Riley's a Piece of S*** and Won't Stop Barking Ever Because He Thinks He's a Great Dog but Really He's Just Sub-Par29/12/2018 Duração: 01h36min
Back from a short break, and with an obnoxiously long title, this episode of the HLTB podcast sees hosts KerfMerf, UltimateZombieToast and NinjaRic talking about the games they beat. By which we mean the games Ric beat, because he's a loser with no life or friends and he's not as handsome as Kerf and his glorious red beard anyway.[Three guesses which one of us handles the RSS uploads]You can also look forward to your regularly-scheduled host segments, a question from the forums, and the usual amount of off-topic conversation!
Don't F*** With Frenzy06/11/2018 Duração: 01h57min
Giddyup, pardners! This episode, our hosts (and a special guest from the West) go through their latest completions, laugh at Kerf's Sonic OC, and get lost in bible-based retro gaming. There's also another installment of the fan-favourite segment, Ricommendations.
Kids Need To Die!12/09/2018 Duração: 02h26min
In perhaps the most morally questionable episode yet, the cast (who is almost unanimously on death's door), discusses plagiarism, the Israel/Palestine conflict, and euthanizing literal children. Special guest pokepaw's kind heart prevents us from committing crimes against humanity. Theme music by Alex Eliades. Intermission music by Acidjoker. Follow us on Twitter @HLtBPodcast
The Neverending Podcast24/08/2018 Duração: 02h19min
Saddle up adventurers, because we're taking this episode of the HLTB Podcast on a pseudo text-based adventure, which can ONLY have good results. Featuring our second guest host Uvehj (Dave?), we have a grand old time discussing the Game of the Month, Stories, as well as the Monster Hunter series. As always, be sure to give our Twitter a follow @HLtBPodcast! (Intermission music is "Gryphons of the West" from the Tyrian 2000 soundtrack by Alexander Brandon)
It's a Funny Story08/08/2018 Duração: 02h16min
Tired of hearing the same three voices every 2 weeks? Be tired no more! The main hosts are joined this episode by their very first guest host from the HLTB community, Anthony! In addition to the usual video game talk, there is a disproportionate focus on Christian children's television and ego-stroking. For the forum question, they discuss the most memorable gaming protagonists.You can check out more of Anthony's music at anneisalive.bandcamp.comAnd, as always, make sure to follow us on Twitter @HLtBPodcast
Setting My Bulge Aside...25/07/2018 Duração: 01h40min
The hosts are back in full form with more digressions about bad movies and genitalia than you can shake a stick at! Ric and Toast flex their fanatical muscles for Chrono Trigger while Kerf does a trial run of his new host segment. It all rounds out with a discussion of the best and most memorable villains in gaming. Be sure to follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HLtBPodcast
Fear is the Greatest Motivator16/07/2018 Duração: 01h07min
On this relatively short, intermissionless, and questionless episode of the podcast, the hosts catch up on their backlog progress from the past month (with Kerf, as usual having way too many games to talk about at once) and share their increasingly warlike host segments--with the potential for the audience to influence their future! Then they end with a plea to the listeners to come aboard as guest hosts.
Choose Your Fighter21/06/2018 Duração: 02h38min
This just might be our longest episode yet! Listen as we ramble about the pros and cons of current-gen consoles! Sleep through Kerf's far-too-long list of recent completions! Judge Ric for his bad taste in games! And wait on the edge of your seat for Toast's paradigm-shifting forum question! We're not exaggerating whatsoever!
E3 2018 Minisode14/06/2018 Duração: 55min
In this short bonus episode of the podcast, the hosts talk about the most intriguing-looking games from the major E3 press conferences.
Podcast of Narcissists30/05/2018 Duração: 01h41min
Picking up a discussion from the HLTB forums, the hosts talk about different options for nominations and votes for the Game of the Month. Toast introduces a new host segment, and then they discuss cheating in games and their favorite gaming content creators.Theme Music "Pod Willing" by Alex EliadesIntermission Music "See Sixty Funk" remixed by Mazedude, retrieved from OCremix.org
I Can't Move On Without You16/05/2018 Duração: 01h45min
In this BLEEPing episode of the HowLongToBeat podcast, the BLEEPing hosts can't stop themselves from using BLEEPing curse words. Nevertheless, they press onward, discussing their favorite game trailers, what series they've played the most games in, and what themes and mechanics they'd like to see more developers use. After the intermission, they enter a Ric-centric discussion to recommend games for his new New 3DS!Theme music "Pod Willing" by Alex EliadesIntermission music "spirit law" by melody and Detective Tuesday courtesy of OCremix.org
I Can't Stop My Face From Making Faces25/04/2018 Duração: 01h54min
Our bold heroes(?), Kerf, Ric, and Toast, first discuss their principles about video game retirements before moving into a conversation about the current Game of the Month, 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors (which again devolves into talking about Danganronpa). They close out by talking about their recently beat/currently playing and questions from the forums, including: How did we get our usernames? What's one game we wish we had never played? And what games do we most want translations of? They also say what games they will nominate for May, but only one of them actually follows through with it (Hint: It's Kerf).Theme music "Pod Willing" by Alex EliadesIntermission music "Solid Snake's Cigarette Break" by Alexander Bornstein from ocremix.org
Let's Blame the Pope11/04/2018 Duração: 01h58min
Blasphemy abounds in this episode of the HowLongToBeat Podcast. The hosts catch up on 3.5 weeks worth of gaming, interview UltimateZombieToast, and answer such pressing questions as: Do you ever replay games, or is it "one and done"? What games have the best stories? What is the longest time it has taken to beat a game from start date to finish date?Intermission music "Hoy, Small Fry!" was remixed by HyperDuck SoundWorks and retrieved from OCremix.orgTheme music "Pod Willing" by Alex Eliades
Get Tactical21/03/2018 Duração: 02h06min
Shaking up the formula yet again, this time the hosts use their (poorly managed) time to discuss Tactical Role-Playing Games, Kerf and Toast ask NinjaRic the tough questions, everybody savagely owns one another, and they all close out once again with updates on their playthroughs and questions from the forums.Theme Music "Pod Willing" by Alex EliadesIntermission Music "Clock Tower" remixed from Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow soundtrack by Rize, retrieved from ocremix.org
I Would Play 900 Hours...04/03/2018 Duração: 01h47min
...And I would play 900 more. On this episode, Kerf, Ric, and Toast answer questions from the forums about the longest amount of time they've put into a game, when to mark a game as complete, and what their ideal gaming setups look like. We briefly touch on March's Game of the Month, Fatal Frame, before gloriously derailing. Ric and Toast interview Kerf about his life in and outside of gaming, and we close with an update on our backlogs.Theme Music "Pod Willing" by Alex EliadesIntermission Music "Far Away" remixed from Mirror's Edge soundtrack by Synesthetics, retrieved from ocremix.org
Start Timer20/02/2018 Duração: 02h09min
In the inaugural episode of the HowLongToBeat Community Podcast, the hosts, Kerf Merf, NinjaRic, and UltimateZombieToast (plus featured guests: doggies) talk about the games they've been playing recently, including a swath of obscure Nintendo DS games and the February 2018 Game of the Month, Odin Sphere. They also make travel plans to beat each other up.Theme Song "Pod Willing" by Alex Eliades
