2018 almost feels like a bit of a blur games-wise, but that doesn't mean your pals at the Sockscast don't still have things on lockdown as they dive head first into their own personal top 10 Games of 2018 lists, and try to figure out if people who sent in contributed lists are "users" or "listeners." Today, we'll be having a look at entries 10 through 6.

Today, they'll be counting down their number 10 through 6 picks for the best ten albums of 2018!

Sockscast Episode 84 is a tale of two podcasts! Polly was deathly ill for the first half, but two weeks later returned to life and was able to recount her journey through the end of both Persona 5 and Steins;Gate 0. After that, John played himself a whole crapton of JRPGs, and Rhete's (surprise, surprise) been watching himself a whole lotta Japanese Cartoons.

And after all that's done, we have ourselves a little half-hour discussion about Toby Fox's DELTARUNE and everything that entails.

Also be sure to check the previous post down there to find out how you can get in on all the Game of the Year shenanigans as we wind down the year!


Sockscast Game of the Year Podcast Listener Submissions Open!
November 14th, 2018

It's gettin' to be that time of year again, and I swear to god, I probably begin this post the same way every year, but you'll have to just deal with it YET AGAIN! Because I already got ya! You read it! Sucker!

Anyway, yep, we're taking listner/reader lists to read during our Game of the Year podcasts this year, and if there's some games you wanna blabber about, all you have to do is follow these simple instructions:

1. Get a list of three games you enjoyed this year together. They don't have to have been released this year. If you played it this year, it's fair game, so go ahead and include Bubble Bath Babes on Famicom, we don't care!

2. Write a brief summary about why the game's on your list. Try to keep it within a reasonable 2-3 sentences. If things end up too long, we'll just paraphrase.

3. Send that list off to Shoot that list right on over to our inbox BEFORE THE EVENING OF DECEMBER 15TH. We'll be recording the Game of the Year podcasts on the 16th, so if you're any later, you won't make the cut.

So, there ya go. You got about a month to get your things together and have your list read on the podcast! Best of luck whittling those lists down!

Polly Dungeon: Behind The Scenes
September 18th, 2018

First and foremost, thanks to everyone that's given Polly Dungeon a shot and sent feedback. Myself, Rhete, and Ghosty are all so happy that so many of you have enjoyed our cute little game!

As a bit of a thank you, I've added a sort of Making of/In Progress page on the Polly Dungeon site to sorta give you an idea of what the game looked like while we were working on it with some various commentary tidbits.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks again for playing and all the feedback.

The adventure of a lifetime awaits! All you gotta do is click that link, grab the game, create your own Polly, and see if you have what it takes to survive the dungeon!

Polly Dungeon was created by myself with the help of Sockscast co-host and best pal, Rhete, and lovely and talented (though, a bit of a lurker) Ghosty. It was a blast to get to work with two of my closest friends on a cool and very silly thing, and we hope you get some enjoyment out of it, too!

Oh hey! I know, it's been a while, but I can promise you we're definitely not dead, as this three-hour and twenty minute episode of the Sockscast can attest!

This episode is a lot of catching up with everyone with John dabbling in some alchemy and checking out that hot new Zelder game, Rhete is back to watching every anime in existence and playing literally every single videogame, and something's bugging Polly, but we can't quite figure out what.
