And here we are! The final Sockscast of 2014! The Game of the Year festivities come to their logical conclusion today with Polly, Rhete, and John counting down the top 5 games they played this year, pointing out a little disappointment here and there, going over the last haul of reader lists, and hopefully spreading some generally good feelings all around! Thank you to everybody that's stuck with us and guest hosted through this silly little podcast idea getting off the ground, and we'll catch you all in 2015!
2014 has officially wound down for the most part and it's time for Polly, Rhete, and John to start discussing their personal favorite games of the year, starting from number 10 and working their way up to number 6 today! We also have a glut of listener-submitted lists we'll be reading throughout to keep the festivities going! Was it YOUR list we read? Or maybe YOURS! Only one way to find out!
Otherwise known as "The Accidental 3D Sonic Games Discussion Episode," as John spent the last few weeks blazing through Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Rhete painted the world of Sonic Colors, and Polly...just wants to argue with John about this whole thing! After all the Sonic talk we find time to discuss other fun games like Freedom Planet, Cloudbuilt, FarCry 2, and Monument Valley!
Giant Bomb forums moderator (and star of his very own Flappy Bird clone game) MooseyMcMan joins the Socks Crew this episode and brings some tall tales of the latest Call of Duty and some fun go-karting action. Meanwhile, Polly just can't seem to bring herself ot leave the basement, Rhete's fighting a war of his own, and John still can't get enough self-imposed punishment in his videogaming!
The Sockscast gets loosey-goosey this week as Twitter's Very Own RaquelineRe joins us to find out what everybody's been up to for the last couple of weeks. Rhete seems to have lost himself down a Legend of Zelda rabbit hole, Polly's been witnessing the end of humanity as we know it, John's STILL can't get over Gone Girl, and Raquel's spent her time being utterly smashed. And lastly, will we ever get the answer to the most important question of all? Tune in and find out!
This episode of the Sockscast comes barrelling out of the gate with John crossing an important entry off his fabled "need to finish" list, Polly motorbiking cross country and wrecking any fools that get in her way, and Rhete instigating a discussion about not one, but TWO of the PS2's most fondly remembered games. Stay tuned after that to find out about John's very serious condition and, of course, YOUR EMAILS!
If you're fishing for podcasts today, then you've nabbed yourself a mighty mammoth of one!
Jetstorm4 tells us all about his JRPGs, Polly recently re-caught the Metal Gear Solid bug, Rhete's playing with puppets, and John's all about that Dragon Warrior.
After that, Rhete, John, and Thom engage in a THREE GODDAMN HOUR dissection of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. You will know every little detail about Nintendo's time-traveling adventure after today's episode!
Maple rejoins the Socks Crew as we brazenly dive head-first into our promised roguelikes discussion and yap on and on about the good and bad of all those fancy perma-death games everybody loves so much. Once that's out of the way, we engage in some pointless, though interesting enough to be included in a podcast banter before burying ourselves in all the email you kind folks sent us this week.
: Due to technical difficulties, this week's episode will be split into two installments. Skype wasn't playing nice so, tune in later this week for Episode 3.2 where we'll have a knock-down drag out discussion about roguelikes!
Twitter pal Maple makes their Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net debut as we discuss the finer points of the games we've played, some actual news for once, and finally answer the question of who the REAL Sockscast sex symbol is!
Bpwner joins the Socks Crew for this installment of the Sockscast as we spend another three goddamn hours yapping about them crazy videroogames!
This time, Polly finds herself planet hopping, John revisits the end of Persona 4 with some Shin Megami Tensei IV sprinkled in, Bpwner still isn't bored of the Borderlands, and Rhete tells us about his friend "Big Ron." After all that excitement, we dive head first into an extended discussion of the Contra series that you all probably knew was going to happen at some point, so let's just get it out of the way now!
After what feels like a majillion years, Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net finally has its own podcast! Join your amazingly knowledgable and endlessly entertaining hosts Polly, Rhete, and John Thyer (Crono Maniac) as they explore the uncharted territory of videogame-related podcasting.
Join them as they yap for almost three hours about such hard hitting and relevant topics as Jamestown, Dragon's Crown, Majora's Mask and a whole shitload of other Zelda, and an hour-long discussion on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive's recent 25th birthday!
