Spoony Bard Podcast: Episode 71: Not the Octopus



Hello and good morning everyone.  Today is a grand day because we have a brand new Spoony Bard Podcast for you, and it is about the best game in the world Disgaea!  Stark and I sit down and have an almost focused conversation about the history, the highs, the lows, the best and the even betters of the franchise.  If you think this is just a plow to spend an entire episode talking about the newest game, which just came out a couple of weeks ago, you would be about 100% correct.  Not to worry though, we also talk a bit about the new Pokemon game that just came out as well as the new Tales of game.  Remember to hit us up on iTunes for a review, because it really does help and let us know what you think in the comments.  You can also email us if you want your shit to be read on the show.


The Spoony Bard Podcast: Episode 70: Great Landing, Great, Great Landing

Great, Just Great

Stark and I are back at it again, this time, again, it is more of my fault.  Work ended up getting away with me, as did vacation and the like.  I am sure that no one wants to hear excuses as much as they want to hear the next podcast, so that is what I am going to give them.

This time we talk about many things, but first of which is Pilotwings for the SNES and other systems.  We also talk about rocket belts and the club that you get into when you fly one of those in real life and how Stark doesn’t seem to believe half the things that I say at a time.  All in all we are back and hoping to make this happen more regularly then we have been ignoring it.


I am calling it fan art even though Casey kind of works for the site.  He doesn’t pod with us, even though he streams and draws.  Screw you.  This was amazing and made my day:

Probably the best landing


Spoony Bard Podcast: Episode 68: Night Time Neptunia



I started off calling this episode 67, it is 68.  I am sorry.  I just had just left work and looked it up during my lunch break.  I am sorry.

If I told you that this pod went off the tracks moments after it started I would be lying to you.  I think the problem is that when we don’t record for lengths of time we just have crazy ideas of things that we should tell the world.  Everything from the worst porn experiences that we could think about to… well pretty much anything that wasn’t edgy mascot games, which was the topic.  I think we can all agree that I hate mascot games and Stark.  I have since watched the third EVA movie, 3.33, and I still stand by saying that I would rather have been home then hanging out with him recording–even though it was kind of a confusing train wreck of a movie.

So Stark’s birthday is coming up on the 17th.  We are going to be doing a live event at his apartment where we drink way too much and play video games.  It came up that if anyone wanted to donate they could.  I will be putting in a donation link at the bottom if you want to buy him booze.  We will drink it on the stream, with a webcam on us.  You are allowed to tell us what to buy if you donate, or pretty much if you leave a comment.  Please keep in mind that we will try to buy it, but if we can’t find it please tell us what shelf too buy off instead (basement bottom shelf, for example, or Top Tier Awesome).


This Week in Stream: 4/19/13

Moon.  Always pick the moon.

Gillman and Zack are at it again! This week we are playing Duck Tales 1 and 2 for the NES, along with the re-releases on GameBoy. We provide our color commentary and thoughts about how just terrible I am at these games. Let us know what you think and feel in the comments!

Spoony Bard Podcast: Episode…. 67?: We learned NOTHING



I went into these games expecting, at best, to learn something about debilitating illnesses/flossing; I came out with a new hero.  His name is Rex Ronan and he can cure ANYTHING with his mixture of not caring, combat rolls, and magic lasers.  In his free time he punches holes in reality to other worlds, just so teach them how to party on a level that we feels is acceptable.  I heard that he is not only best friends with Slash, but he is the reason that Guns and Roses broke up; Axel Rose isn’t nearly as cool.  They had to make the game that he was in unplayable and confusing because if it was based on his real life no one would do anything besides play it and wish fondly that he was there dad.
