Episode 97: Circle of the Moon Onceover

April 24, 2016

Wherein medibot and I recall and review a video game we genuinely like. Nathan Graves is a plodding oaf who, sometimes, can outrange his opponents.


Episode 72: Paper Mario & The Problem of Quake Hammer

September 2, 2014

Wherein medibot and I try for over an hour to figure out something we don’t like about Paper Mario.


Episode 67: AI in Video Games

May 23, 2013

Wherein we give our listening audience a reprieve from Magic and talk about something else. To my great surprise and satisfaction, we actually do a pretty good job of it.

I recently changed some of the site structure and how the feed works. The skullscast should now be visible any way you use to get at it, and the feed backlog should go as far back as our first cast.

Send all questions to @skullsasked on twitter. We also have in case you want to use that.



Episode 64: Sparkling Dragons

March 14, 2013

Can’t exactly deliver what I promise with this one. medibot and myself review a pair of games that the each of us played, following the success of our formula from last time.


Episode 58: Charles Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden

January 3, 2013

Have a look at the game for yourself here. We recently watched a friend play this game, and felt like talking about it. It is excellent for more than mere comedy.


Episode 55: Skullsasked Bonanza

November 30, 2012

Wherein medibot and myself answer three questions and raise many more.


Episode 54: Dungeons

November 12, 2012

Wherein medibot and take a tasting of dungeons.

Is there a word for going to a sampling of things you know are going to taste bad but you’re going there to see how bad or because you have to for some other reason? A tastelessing?

No, that sounds like we’re leasing taste.
Which we aren’t. Skip it.


Episode 41: Rise of the Videogame Zinesters Review, Chapter 4

September 10, 2012

Wherein medibot and myself continue our misbegotten effort to read an entire book to you without actually reading the text of said book to you. We all have to learn reviewing skills sooner or later and this is our time.

Hey, that’s one of the books messages! This is our time!


Episode 40: Rise of the Videogame Zinesters Review, Chapter 3

August 28, 2012

Wherein medibot and I deliver incoherent arguments based on not-agreed-upon bases and different source material (the book and notes on the same). Paraphrases are not quotes. Quotes are not safe. Blood will fly and fur will be spilled.


Episode 39: Rise of the Videogame Zinesters, Ch.2

August 26, 2012

At this point I may as well be reading the book to you. Pretty sure that’s a no-no, though.

“No-no, though” is also fun to say.
