The Sega Addicts Podcast

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss the oddly fun 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker for the Dreamcast!  We spend some time coming up with the worst combinations possible for a game and try to pitch it anyway, get hype to play some Tennis 2K2 for next week, and slap the shit out of each other with puns galore.  What in the hell happened to us?

This week on Sega Addicts, special guest @DrCullenPHD joins us as we talk about a truly timeless classic that could be considered one of Sega's most influential works, Space Harrier!  We discuss what gives games longevity to each of us, talk about a fan making a fan game of a fan making a fan game, (fangame-ception) and make a lot of jokes that we really probably shouldn't have.  Let the good times roll!

This week on Sega Addicts, we discuss the odd game yet bitchin' soundtrack that is Decap Attack!  We discuss how long it usually takes us to get attached to characters in games, pump up Shenmue 3 and Yakuza 5 as they represent Sega in the Golden Joystick Awards, and share our first video game crushes as well as some valuable dating advice that you should definitely never take. How have any of us ever dated anybody?

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.
