Level 131 - Co-Op and Op-Eds

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude, Matrarch

We welcome back Michelle to the panel! She tackled a pair of Game Pass puzzle games. She also wants to tackle Ell, who discussed a pair of co-op games M had to carry him in! Nate played a veiner that left him green. Corey, as usual, rode some coattails and played games that contained animals.

Xbox announced an Xbox Live Gold price hike and then rescinded it! What did we think of this decision? Do we want Gears Pop to hand us achievements before the game is gone for good?

We will tell you what's coming to Games with Gold and what other games are coming real soon! Contests, milestones, sales, and the kitchen sink! Enjoy the show!

Fan favorite trio Exe, Elroy, and Chewie are here with a new segment called Abandonment Issues, in which they tell the stories behind why they've left certain games unfinished to forever drag down their completion percentages. The best part? Picks were selected in secret by cohosts, so responses are all off the cuff, resulting in (for better or worse) the most unscripted segment you've heard from these gents! (2:22:30)

On this week's Waka's Weird Wonder, Wakapeil will talk about the game Alien Cruise (3:17:56)

Ell completed and enjoyed an NES style throwback and enlisted some achievement assistance. Nate tackled a Nefarious scavenger hunt. Corey's mission involved an Impossible Lair. Kenny is excited for an upcoming Game Pass game and is preparing for fatherhood and a brief hiatus. We have lots of news, contests, and milestones as well!

Level 124 - It’s a Math Joke

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude5012, FuFuCuddilyPoof

The 12 days of Christmas on TA are nearing their end and the panel is happy to briefly talk about what they've been playing and share what games they've been using for each challenge.

Ell adds the final Double Fine epic remaster to his to-do list while simultaneously partying up. Nate rounds up his completions with an old game, increments his games started count with a Game Pass stack, and suggests evaluating a new game demo. Corey breaks down a game into its composite segments and theorizes that he might be spending more time with a new veiner hybrid. Kenny's game time may have depreciated this week, but he's no square and made time to play some games in a few different series.

Level 122 - Happy Cakesgiving!

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude5012, FuFuCuddilyPoof

Fresh off of a Cake Bash livestream, we've got another auditory feast for your ears in time for Turkey Day. Ell brings a point and clicker on this Day of the Turkey and gets a crew together for some Black Friday cheevo discounts at the local casino. Nate serves up a cautionary tale of glitched metroidvanias and keeps an eye on the clock. Corey's looking to get on the Road to beat the gamepass departure traffic by possibly picking up some DLC with his holiday money. Kenny gives up some of his valuable gaming time to help an AH101 family member progress closer to their game completion goals.

Microsoft's Black Friday deals are live and running through November 30th and we have a few suggestions that might help you to make decisions on how to fill some gaps in your punchcard.

Waka accepted the Hive Jump challenge and is back to tell you about this weird wonder.
