The Backlog Busters talk about their history with sports video games and what they want in a non-traditional future.  What games the would like to see in the video game hall of fame (or whatever that was called).  What games did they choose for March and did trashturkey really change his gobble gobble to waggle waggle?

Backlog Busters 3 (A Night in Sin and Punishment)

Backlog Busters 3 (A Night in Sin and Punishment)

March 30, 2018

Did the grrouch and the turkey finish their games?  What does serge think about his first ever walking simulator?  Was it a stimulating simulation or were those boots made for walking on out of there?

How about the Turkey?  Were his sins punished appropriately?  Did he get his waggle on?  Was the waggle the punishment and was the WiiU the Sin?

Also listen for conversations involving a Future Log and what did the Podfather ask that generated a discussion?

Special shout-outs to @theninformant for Feeding Serge in Pennsylvania, @fluxtaposed for exchanging beer with serge and @skinnymattK who might never sleep again thanks to his new family addition!

Backlog Busters 4 (OxenLink to the Past)

May 5, 2018

Join us this week to find out if the Turkey thinks that one of the all time classics holds up to its hype and as the grrouch plays another game that is all story and no gameplay. There will also be discussion on babies and termites but sadly the guys didn't delve into termite babies. What is a future log? What is a backlog builder (hint, it's not a new IP coming to switch) and how did Adam Leonhardt get a segment named after him?  Thank you to all our Backloggers who help make this show possible!!!

This month the guys fail at recording a podcast and then fail at trying to piece it back together. Is anything going to be audible? Are their segments? How cohesive does it all sound? We also introduce a new segment "Adopt a backlogger" and Skinny Matt https://twitter.com/skinnymattk is our first adoptee. Please forgive us, this is the best we could do :)
