The old becomes new, in a pod cast by two,
as a title once lost becomes found.
Chris and Jake plunge in to the new Darkest Dungeon,
and Besiege delights as it confounds.
Sean joins Chris and Jake before the ad break,
and Gex lore is run into the ground.
18/02 23:44 - Idle Thumbs 198: Missing Molyneux
On Mars you don't have to turn around to take a selfie, thanks to recent developments from our trading company's offworld patent lab. Pardon the cough.
12/02 05:30 - Idle Thumbs 197: What Happened To Us
This week on Idle Thumbs we talk about our crippling addiction to Destiny, our experiences in a recent AAA first person zombie survival game, and why Far Cry 2 might not be that great after all. What happened to us? We were joined by special guest Justin McElroy of Polygon and the My Brother, My...
05/02 06:24 - Idle Thumbs 196: Ode on a Grecian Hat Sale
It was the 90s, and there was time. There was a quiet space left in between, room to decide for yourself what was what. But then Mario had to go and open his big fat mouth. Now he never shuts up.
28/01 06:15 - Idle Thumbs 195: Business Guys On Planes
Jake goes back in time with Grim Fandango Remastered, Nick makes sure the trains run on time in Mini Metro, Danielle moves time forward in controlled and user-selected increments in Majora's Mask 3D, and Chris talks about a dead guy coming to life, limbs flailing, cursing at everyone. Somewhere,...
21/01 23:50 - Idle Thumbs 194: A Grave Ghost
The match is about to start, the anticipation so thick you can see it in the air. Dust2, of course. You strap on your MicroSoft HoloLens (Pimple edition, bought new) and scan the crowded auditorium. Aimbots found: Six. Wallhacks: Eighteen. You're not sure why you even came. You put the device...
14/01 15:31 - Idle Thumbs 193: General Interest
It's road trip week. Buckle your torn-off seat belt, and put the Elijah Wood Flipper movie on the in-van VCR because we're going to Disney World. Not responsible for any injuries of any kind including death.
07/01 20:28 - Idle Thumbs 192: The New Blindfolded Fool
You've delved too deep below the sea, to a time before human memory. A voice from your past won't stop echoing in your head, telling you lies, telling you about space, telling you things you've heard so many times before.
01/01 02:46 - Idle Thumbs 191: Not the Greatest, but the Best
We ring out the old, and ring in the new, with what may be the oldest conversation in the existence of our medium: What is the best video game of all time? Not the greatest, mind you, but the best. See you in 2015! (Thanks to Matter magazine for sending us on this quest as part of their video...
24/12 19:13 - Idle Thumbs 190: A Very Spectrum HoloByte Christmas
It is the season of giving gifts, unless you are Sean Vanaman, who only seems to receive gifs. Danielle and Chris get deeper into Dragon Age Inqusition, which mostly means Iron Bull talk. After that, it's time for a holiday mailbag trip through the digital back alleys of the competitive Smash...
18/12 17:47 - Idle Thumbs 189: Serious Ma'am
Alone and in a strange place, a robot types furiously at a terminal keyboard. "dir" it writes. No response. "asdfghjk," it continues, to similar success. It glances around, looks back at the keyboard and then the screen. "load Dragon Age."
10/12 23:53 - Idle Thumbs 188: A Refined Baby
With the end of the year coming up fast, Jake and Danielle are joined by Patrick Klepek of Giant Bomb, to pull back the curtain on the deliberations and distractions involved in picking the Games of the Year, and to share some surprising travel tips the modern gamer may find useful.
03/12 23:58 - Idle Thumbs 187: Half a Brain
Nick and Sean are transfixed by the supple, majestic fur of Far Cry 4, Chris crosses a road better than anyone in the room (but not better than his friends), and Jake stares at a real brain on a real plate.
26/11 21:33 - Idle Thumbs 186: Doctor DNA
It is time to give thanks. Join us in giving thanks for inexpensive content updates, for the Super Smash Bros. metagame, for mobile free-to-play experiences, for elephant slaughter, for knowing one's own gaming limits, for blockbuster pseudo-reboots, and for Chris and Sean arguing about basically...
19/11 06:39 - Idle Thumbs 185: Beppo's Hole
Beppo's Hole is not a place one wants to spend very much time (it's kind of a rollicking mess) but here we all are so let's make the best of it. In Beppo's Hole, Danielle catches the scent of Far Cry 4 but can't stay and truly enjoy it until later. In Beppo's Hole, Chris serves himself up the...
12/11 07:18 - Idle Thumbs 184: Super Pools 'n' Ghosts
This week the 90s are back, but what if they came back wrong? Holiday reviewing season has Danielle in its grasp, but that may mean she has just been playing a ton of upcoming Nintendo and Sega games. That and Advanced Warfare. As the old saying goes, "Behind every Dorito is a gross, super-ripped...
05/11 19:28 - Idle Thumbs 183: The Anonymouses
As you get older you begin to wonder if the culture has changed, or you have changed. Are you in a place now where you're just unreachable by marketing, not by force but because you are drifting out of sync with the cultural consciousness? Last time you stuck your head up and really looked around...
29/10 03:49 - Idle Thumbs 182: I Am Suspicious of Myself
A lot of aliens were defeated this week, but at what cost? Danielle finally reaches the end of Alien: Isolation, having given the game a complete day of her life. In Beyond Earth, Jake, Chris, and Nick have shot some giant worms and roving green animals, but aren't sure what that means, or why...
22/10 05:03 - Idle Thumbs 181: Rumors & Hearsay
The Fiver! Chris, Jake, Sean, Danielle and Nick bring you all the rapid-fire hot gossip you desire, from our hellmouths to your ears. This week's scandals hot off the press: Nick's latest Lords Management misstep leads to the product's erasure, leaving onlookers agog. Woman swoons at news,...
15/10 22:39 - Idle Thumbs 180: Wars & Pieces
Through examining the clues laid before us, interrogating everyone in sight, and making mental leaps heretofore unperformed by man, we deduce that no matter what they tell you, in video games you'll never be the Sherlock Holmes of the story; you're always Watson, and you always have been. Plus,...
08/10 06:19 - Idle Thumbs 179: Shadow of Something
We all live in the shadow of something. We all have our daemons. When Chris set foot in the world of Alien: Isolation, all he could think about was the time he killed a billion Orcs who never forgot him. When Danielle played Alien: Isolation, all she could think of was how the love affair would...
01/10 05:03 - Idle Thumbs 178: CS Losers
Join us as we all embark on our own personal trips through the dusty dunes. After 15 years clean, Sean gets a taste of Counter-Strike and is feared lost, Chris embarks on a journey of the mind on Desert Golfing's back 1500 and comes out changed, Jake falls through a time hole into his past, and...
24/09 01:07 - Idle Thumbs 177: The Good Ones
Humans of your own choosing have meticulously picked the contents of this episode from over three thousand podcast segments. Following the curation process, they will be algorithmically suited to your tastes by a robot. When the system does its job, you're happy. You get exactly what you want....
17/09 22:32 - Idle Thumbs 176: The Classic Alien Form
We sit in a dark room, split into factions by our actions or perhaps fate, conspiring to destroy each other for reasons unknown. We steal food from each other's mouths. We eye our friends' chosen partners jealously, vying to make them our own. Yes, we have been playing board games, so get ready...
11/09 01:18 - Idle Thumbs 175: It's an Itchio
You wonder what your destiny may be but stop; that's not important now. With focus you will master this. With precise, uninterrupted attention you will ascend higher than you ever have before. You will see the two thousandth course. You will diffuse the bomb. And you will master the lore of the...
03/09 22:46 - Idle Thumbs 174: Live from the Metropolitan Ballroom
We went to PAX and recorded an episode live in front of a bunch of wonderful people who could all hear us, though we could not hear one another. That didn't stop us from trying to communicate, and we think the results speak for themselves. This episode was rated 3 out of 5 hosts by all in...
27/08 20:53 - Idle Thumbs 173: Ridonkulous Rift
I heard that social justice war has changed / But I'd always heard social justice war never changes / In the end it doesn't matter anyway / Because this is the dawning of a brand new day / Where it doesn't matter what you've heard / Cause I'm the social justice wizard.

Elevator music...
21/08 01:38 - Idle Thumbs 172: http://malaise.ennui/
Pleased to present this podcast to placate the people that prefer Thumbs... Pleased. Thanks. Past the part that permeates the pod (the Playable Teaser) presenters take polite turns pontificating, talking, pushing their played titles. Parse this peculiar transmission, permitting the playful...
13/08 18:49 - Idle Thumbs 171: The Curious Case of the Rhode Island Reader
In life, and in the games we played this week, time continues to advance whether you want it to or not. Move forward, look back, or stand still, the inexorable march to the end continues unabated. So when you click on that dead body in the trunk, for God's sake seize the opportunity and do...
07/08 00:26 - Idle Thumbs 170: Esophagus Sarcophagus
A weekend of non-stop sci-fi movies accidentally begets an episode filled with the first person corridors of today and yesterday, and the gross things they're made of. Plus: Chris encounters the Necrodancer and Jake plays PC games from his couch for the first time.
31/07 01:19 - Idle Thumbs 169: On Blade
Things have really gone to hell. It's all a big cacophonous mess. Sean and Danielle gave up the podcasting for a life of dealing drugs aboard a cruise ship to a man who worships John Madden. Jake just plays the same old games every night, a worthless old man. Chris... well who can even tell...
23/07 21:02 - Idle Thumbs 168: I Like the Hair
A podcast teaches,
But never ceases
To deliver speeches,
Sweet as peaches,
And soft as cheeses.
A podcast reaches,
While on the beaches
Or on the creases,
When eating pizzas,
With your nieces,
Like pyschokinesis,
In bits and...
16/07 23:46 - Idle Thumbs 167: And That's Why Skeletons Fart That Way
After a weekend of unparalleled successes and unmitigated failures, we talk through the difference between conceiving of something, and making it actually happen. There's also a long look at what it means when the knowledge and advances of modern technology are applied to game design philosophies...
09/07 23:22 - Idle Thumbs 166: Cyberpunk Cop-Killer
Look, I'm not sayin' Tawmmy shouldn'ta been sent up for doing what he done to all them cahps, but they got stunnas, what else is he gonna do? Also I heard from Stacy?ya know Stacy. Whose fathah died?

02/07 22:01 - Idle Thumbs 165: KeLo. Is. Here.
The question posed: Was Nick really in love with his Wii U, or was it all a bizarrely detailed dream? To find the answer, we ventured deep into Nick's mind, probing the darkest wells of his psyche, the inkiest depths of his soul. The journey cost lives, ended friendships, conjured up some very...
25/06 17:37 - Idle Thumbs 164: The Seed of a Sneeze
Lungs howling, eyes watering, mouth agape, you stare into the light. With your throttle down and thrusters on, your search for that satisfying release intensifies, but each passing moment serves to only charge your panic?will you find it? Is it there? Is it you? Then, finally...Gesundheit! Video...

02/09 15:17 - [EchoPlayer] An Extra Life
EchoPlayer.com expires on the 9th October and I’m finally leaving that domain name behind. However, for those of you who have stumbled across this site in its past 5 years of life, I’m continuing it through the aptly named An Extra Life. It’s currently in development and...
21/09 08:30 - [Industry] Console User Interface
If there’s one thing that this console generation has brought - aside from increased technical-wizardry and possible motion gimmickry - it’s more-sophisticated graphical user interfaces. The PlayStation3’s XrossMediaBar, Xbox 360’s Dashboard and the Wii’s…...
20/09 09:00 - [Culture] Favourite Games?
Although perhaps not the best example of gaming’s social acceptance, it is quite telling that neither MySpace nor Facebook - the two largest social networking sites on the web - currently feature a designated area for you to input your “Favourite Games”.
You can tell the...
19/09 09:00 - [News] Theme My PSP
The recent 3.70 firmware update for the PSP has brought along the option of official custom themes for the device.
Available to download from the UK PlayStation site, the majority are related to a certain game and are quite cumbersome to use - except the excellent Cookies theme (I’ll...
18/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Destroy All Humans Again
Following the previous nostalgia-tinged post, I thought I’d now take a look at Destroy All Humans, as it too features a prominent and memorable setting - a humorous portrayal of 1950’s USA. Again, this is a past review of mine, at the time of the game’s release. A sequel has...
17/09 09:00 - [Impressions] Way Beyond Good & Evil
Writing about the joy of exploring Rapture in Bioshock brought back fond memories of my time exploring another distinctive and rich world - Hillys, in the seminal Beyond Good & Evil. For old time’s sake here’s a look at a review I wrote way back when (slightly tarted-up). If you...
14/09 09:25 - [News] PS3VR
Early next year Sony is set to release PlayTV in certain PAL territories (including the UK, thankfully), allowing people to watch and record digital television on their PS3 through a combined TV tuner and personal video recorder.
Although Freeview players are becoming cheaper and more...
13/09 19:06 - [News] Newsbyte 01
Yakuza 3 confirmed for PS3. Sadly it’s currently Japan only, like no.2.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction dated. October in USA, November over here.

13/09 18:50 - [EchoPlayer] Newsbyte 00
Although staying abreast of all the happenings in the gaming world is interesting and exciting, it’s also quite laborious at times. Unless you have something particularly noteworthy to report, you often end up recycling what everyone else has already said - with the majority of it being...
13/09 09:10 - [Upcoming] Behind the Killzone
After E3 2007’s showing of Killzone 2, my interest in the game has grown exponentially. Visually it was actually pretty close to the pre-rendered trailer that was shown many moons ago - rivaling Crysis in many respects. Atmospherically it seems to be very strong - hopefully it won’t...
24/09 22:40 - [Old Portables] New GBA Model Released (Not Micro)
In officially the quietest launch ever, Nintendo released a new version of the GBAsp in America. Absolutely nothing changed? apart from the screen. It?s significantly brighter. And it?s backlit, not sidelit. The joy.
Also, the button which previously toggled brightness on and off now...
23/09 22:36 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS WiFi Details in October
At Iwata?s fact filled TGS speech he also talked a bit about the upcoming WiFi service for the DS. It?s set to launch in November worldwide and Iwata said that full details will come in October.
So stay tuned for that.
23/09 22:35 - [Nintendo DS] Nintendo DS Price Cut (predicted it you know?)
Yup, today NoE announced a price cut for the NDS taking effect from the 7th of October.  This coincides with the launch of 2 new DS bundles.
The console on it?s own will now cost £89.99 and the brand new pink DS with Nintendogs Dachshund version will retail for...
06/09 22:37 - [Sony PSP Games] 185,000 PSPs sold in 4 days.
Sony?s PSP console has become the fastest-selling games console of all time in the UK, selling a huge 185,000 units in its first four days on sale, perhaps even more via the online markets.
High street store enjoyed an incredible weekend, grossing a whopping £33.3 million in hardware...
18/08 22:20 - [General] Xbox 360 Launch Details
Yesterday afternoon, Microsoft announced the plans for the Xbox 360 launch at the Games Developer conference.
Although Microsoft did not state when the launch date will be, we were all given the much talked price and bundles. I can reveal that there will be two separate bundles available to...
17/08 22:17 - [Old Portables] GBA Micro Dated
The third iteration of the Game Boy Advance will hit Europe on November 4th priced at £69. It?ll come in silver, blue, pink and green colours with more faceplates coming later
Thsi seems to be the latest piece of news in what I expect to be a minor news revolution inorder to ease the...
01/08 22:12 - [Games] Resident Evil 5 details
Announced sometime ago for the PS3 and XBox 360, Resident Evil 5 is naturally set after the previous game and is already looking sumptuous. IGN reports on the latest issue of Famitsu Xbox which includes a new interview with the game?s producer Jun Takeuchi.
Most interestingly is the...
21/07 22:22 - [Sony PSP Games] PSP Games Priced
Sony has been contacting retailers and telling them how much first party PSP games are going to cost. After spending £179.99 on the value pack you will then have to spend £34.99 to buy games like Wipeout and Ridge Racer.
So, despite having to wait 6 months for launch and having...
30/06 22:11 - [Consoles, General] Japan not keen on Xbox 360. Loves PS3 and Wii.
It would seem that despite a solid E3, Microsoft are still having problems cracking the Japanese market. Famitsu did a survey of the gaming public, asking what next gen console they were most interested in. 42.2% said they prefered the Revolution, 39.8% went for the PS3 and a pathetic 18% went...
31/05 22:09 - [Games Based on Movies] Peter Jackson’s & EA’s King Kong Game
Eurogamer has a nice selection of shots from Peter Jackson?s King Kong the upcoming game based on the, naturally, upcoming movie.
Unlike the majority of film tie ins, produced by EA and the like (mainly EA), which are quite horrendous, this game is worth your attention as it?s being...

Edward CastronovaAs you may know, football (soccer, not handegg) is broken. The game as designed is strategically light (not enough scoring, too much luck - from a Euro game? How odd) and it has fallen victim to two unrelated forms of corruption, the unelected-international-body corruption that...

18/02 23:58 - Sam & Max: Episode 203 - Night of the Raving Dead
Review: "It's a reasonable length for this type of episodic game though I would have liked to have done more in the TV studio. It?s the darkest of the series thus far but you?ll be smiling rather than ducking under the desk or covering your eyes.... Another fun episode with a few good laughs....

12/01 17:36 - Next Life
Review: "I think it could have been awesome. Shorter, sharper, and throw out the arcade puzzles. Eke out the punch line, and then get to the resolution. Like the TV series I mentioned, Next Life got lost. I desperately wanted to rate it higher, but in the end what it wasn't smothered what it was.

02/12 22:18 - Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder
Review: "It's an investigative game with a difference due to a quite novel interface. You collect clues and objects as in any detective game but in this one you are able to mix and match them and come up with new clues. This you do in the 'thought window'..."

News: Third installment in the popular pure-puzzle adventure series set to tease brains and challenge minds in February 2008.
11/11 20:26 - Sam & Max Episode 201: Ice Station Santa
