069 - Wolfenstein 3D

069 - Wolfenstein 3D

We spend a lot of time talking about the large, in both stature and accomplishment, man who laid the foundation for the game that would put id Software on the map: Silas Warner. His life was fascinating even though he wasn't as successful as he probably should have been. We also discuss about how crazy John Carmack was/is and how Wolfenstein 3D sold extremely well for being a shareware release.

Alex also yells about Nazis for a minute, of course.

068 - True Lies

The end of SchwartzGiving is upon us as we discuss the Arnie as action spy and final James Cameron team-up: True Lies. We talk about Bill Paxton, Tom Arnold, and how surprisingly into Jamie Lee Curtis at least one member of the crew is. It might get awkward.

067 - Terminator 2: Judgment Day

SchwartzGiving continues as we talk about one of the few sequels that far surpasses it's predecessor: Terminator 2: Judgment Day. We really tried to examine how this movie would feel watching for the first time and gush over all of the great iconic scenes as well as contemplate how time travel works. That last part doesn't work so well.

062 - The Critic

062 - The Critic

It's good... in a bad kind of way... you could almost say IT STINKS! This week Caleb hosts as we talk about the Jon Lovitz failed adult primetime animated comedy called The Critic. The guys have an odd relationship with this cult cartoon as it should in theory be much funnier than it is, but it's dated references are probably keeping it from being timeless. Yet again we pitch a Netflix revival with some modern twists, will they listen to us? Hire us for millions?

054 - Tetris

The history of this week’s subject is a murky tale of copyright law, Cold War drama, and psychological manipulation. It’s one of the most popular games of all time - Tetris!

Caleb crams as much as solid information possible into this week’s episode, Brandon tells a fun story about how his parents are thieves, and Alex has something to say about everything (as usual). Colin is out for the week, but he’ll be back!

053 - Super Nintendo Games

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, S-N-E-S or Snes; no matter how you say it, the gray and purple video game box was an incredible evolution from the original Nintendo.  The new, more powerful hardware enabled developers to create games that were bigger, better, and more beautiful.  The library that accrued over its 10 year lifecycle is incredible.
