Shhhhh... keep your voice down! D'ya wanna see some... I don't even know if I can say this here, but I've got some reeeeeeeeal intereting pictures. Found 'em on a website I know I shouldn't be on, 'cause it says I need to be 18 or older to enter. Y'know, the kind with all the boy parts and lady parts and other parts showing. Shhhh, I told ya to keep quiet! My ma's got ears like a jackrabbit. I also got this here podcast, but I don't know if you'd be interested in that. Just two nerds talking...

When we last left our heroes, they had resolved themselves to cleanup duty in Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor. How did Stef and Denton deal with the rigors of space sanitation, poverty, and gender dysphoria? The answer may surprise you (or maybe not at all).   Games: Final Fantasy XV Night in the Woods Fragments of Him Crypt of the Necrodancer Superhot Not a Hero NieR: Automata Diaries of a Spaceport Janitor   Music: End of the Unknown (Adam & Eve's Theme) by Keiichi Okabe (from NieR:...

Stef and Denton dropped the ball again. Or more accurately, they dropped The Silver Case. Into Mt. Doom. It was the only way to be sure. In lieu of their regularly scheduled Silver Case discussion, Stef talks about better living through Pokemon raising, while Denton still won't shup up about Persona 5.

STEF FOUND THE 'MURDER, SHE WROTE' BOARD GAME AT A PAWN SHOP AND SHE ALSO PLAYED THE GAME AND TALKED ABOUT IT ON OUR PODCAST TOGETHER ... ugh, where am I? Must have blacked out there for a minute. I was just about to tell all you fine folks about how we played Inside for this month's Game Club entry. What did Stef and Denton think of the game? Did they get anything out of it? Should Cronenbergian body horror ever be rended with the same beautifully realized physics engine again? All this and...

The votes are in, and... it looks like opinions on Oxenfree are mixed. Stef and Denton stand united on Pokemon Go, however; we just can't overlook the game's contradictory, urban-centric design.

Finally, the long-awaited double Game Club episode! This week Stef and Denton talk Read Only Memories and Anatomy--two games that could not be more different from each other. We laughed, we cried, we pissed our pants.

This Cast Are Sick is back with another episode and 100% less bookgame club! Denton, a victim of a series of accidents (as are we all), was unable to purchase his copy of Read Only Memories, so we have postponed this episode's gamek club in favor of talking about... what we always talk about. Is Overwatch overdone? Did Nightcry's impressive Kickstarter produce anything of value? Will people ever stop caring about video game review scores? These questions and more! Answered! Kind of.

For the book club... er, game club? Bame club? Goo- Let me stop you right there. The Let's-Discuss-A-Vidyagame segment visits the depths of the ocean with adventure horror game SOMA. Were Denton and Stef satisfied with the bounty of Davy Jones' locker or would they rather throw it overboard like an elderly Titanic survivor would a priceless jewel?

Finally it's time to talk about Kentucky Route Zero! But not really. Ultimately, it proves quite difficult to talk about a game that's unfinished, but hopefully Stef and Denton give you some idea of what's so special about this very unique game.

For this episode's assignment, Stef and Denton played through Cibele. CY-bell. Si-BULL. While they might not be able to pronounce the title, they had plenty to say about this game of teenage love in the digital age. Yes, it is time to get romantic. Hi-cha-cha-cha-CHA!

A fog as thick as pea soup hangs over the cemetery. A crow caws menacingly at some distance from the graves. Suddenly, a flash of light, a thunderous crash, and now, a half-decayed hand pokes up from the soil.

But it's not too late to love you, gentle listeners.It's been a while, but what do we do when we fall off the horse, Mr. Wayne? That's right; we clamber back onto the boat. What better way to herald our triumphant return in this, the year of the sheep, than to extoll the virtues of 2014, a year which was totally garbage by most accounts.OP- Lovely Mountain by Calum Bowen (From Lovely Planet)Intermission - Kamek's Theme by Koji Kondo (From Yoshi's Island)ED - Too Late to Love You by Ben...

What's that you say? "Horrendously late again," you say? "Recorded over a week and a half ago," you say? Well aren't you just a Prompt Peter. Nobody likes a Prompt Peter. That is, except a Show-Up-To-The-Party-Unfashionably-Early Margret. A person of your standing should be careful who you keep in your company.In this episode, things get real. Like, REALLY real. Smell-o-vision real, even. Stef and Denton talk about the role of realism in games and what that should...

Hope you have your brown pants on, Listeners, because by the end of this terrifying episode, you'll realize that those aren't Fun Size Tootsie Rolls you're sitting in.Now for the good news: I have pulled out every stop de-roboticizing this podcast and am happy to announce that the audio this time is at least 30% less robotic.

Welcome to a somewhat belated episode 3. Denton went to TGS this year and was able to play a few things. Stef has been playing Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, but we are not allowed to talk about that here since it violates a blood oath we made with the pagan gods of electronic gaming.Games in this episode:Push Me, Pull YouRelativityMillion Onion HotelLurkingLittle Witch Pie DeliveryBand Saga (Looks like Roger Hicks got the Kickstarter funded in time!)Lovers in a Dangerous...

After the REAL Episode 2 was spirited away in the night by government agents, this "Episode 2," indistinguishable from the real thing, stepped up to take its place. Today we talk about what we've been playing, self-imposed etiquette in Dark Souls, and some news-y things. E-mail us at thiscastaresick@gmail.com with just about anything and there's a good chance we'll talk about it on a future podcast.Games in this episode:Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DSThe Walking Dead Season...
