Break out the four-eared rabbits and your lucky leprechaun’s foot; you’re going to need all the luck you can get for Podcast #13, the first “GameCola Podcast” ever to appear on the GameCola YouTube channel. We’ve tampered with the laws of physics to present you with a podcast that you can hear…and see! This process is so revolutionary that we haven’t even invented a word for it yet.
“The Unlucky Podcast”, as we call it, stars GameCola staff writers Michael Gray, Michael Ridgaway, Zach Rich, and Nathaniel Hoover. Discussions cover all sorts of random topics, including save points, how companies can get away with releasing a string of lousy games just because of the name attached to them, live multiplayer versus online multiplayer, and voice acting in the Mario games, to name a few. In case the discussions aren’t scintillating enough, there’s a silent playthrough of the Sega Genesis game James Pond II: Codename RoboCod running in the background. Really, there’s no hidden metaphor or deep significance to the choice of game; it’s there so you’ve got something to look at.
Now, go look at it already!
[Editor’s note: The video below is a re-upload; just pretend you’re watching James Pond as you listen.]
