This week on Sega Addicts, we release one of the Lost Episodes from the vault that we probably possibly have, recorded on July 18th, 2016.  In it, we continue our two-part discussion on Skies of Arcadia, debate whether or not video games based on movies have to be terrible and why or why not, and we share some of our favorite TV shows, among other things.

As an added bonus, get a glimpse into what we deal with for you, the listeners, in our weekly battle against the forces of Push-To-Talk.

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss the hypest puzzle game you never wanted us to talk about again, Columns!  We debate that scourge of "gamer entitlement" we all keep hearing about when it comes to false advertising and buyer's remorse, most regrettable gaming purchases, and we field someone who seems to have a crush on our resident baby, @DrCullenPHD.  Good times all around!

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss everyone's favorite not-Space Harrier, Galaxy Force II! We discuss how we feel games could best touch on social issues without being preachy, share our list of games we've beaten (or come close to beating) in the arcade, and get straight-up "laxative" in this piece. That's right- nobody's more "laxative" than Sega Addicts!

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss Gearbox's greatest creation, Aliens: Colonial Marines!  We also talk a bit about what games have ever made us feel deeply for them and what we have to put in to get something equal out of the experience.  To top it off, we start getting hyped up about the upcoming 24-hour Dreamless Dreamcast marathon, taking place on September 17th. Don't miss it!

On this episode of Sega Addicts, we dive into a two-part Game of the Week with the Dreamcast classic RPG Skies of Arcadia!  We discuss whether outdated jokes and memes in video games are a problem that can be solved, Brett gets Deep in that Silver, and we talk a little bit about why we could never be sky pirates.  Seriously, don't hire us.  We'd be terrible.

On this special 4th of July episode of Sega Addicts, we talk the most patriotic Sega game of all time, After Burner, and how it totally doesn't rip off Top Gun or anything like that!  We share our own version of the founding fathers signing the Declaration of Independence, but with goofy video game characters, and we spend a bit too long making fun of Seinfeld.  What's not to like? (?)

In this episode of Sega Addicts, special guest @Chumsknifeblade joins us to discuss a Sega classic featuring the smarmiest, smuggest kid ever, Kid Chameleon!  We share genres of games that we suck at but love anyway, talk about some of our favorite cover songs, and laugh at some guy's ultimate misfortune of having his house burn WHILE it's being taken by a flood.  RIP in pieces, probable meth lab.

On this episode of Sega Addicts, Nick the prodigal son returns to discuss Deep Duck Trouble with Donald Duck!  We discuss whether or not a story can have a satisfying ending while still leaving room for a sequel, reveal Nick's true identity as a teenage girl in a skin suit, and spend way too long talking about Pop-Tarts and sharing the truth about the Great Toaster Pastry War of 2680.
