You'll hear our thoughts on the different genres of games, specific game reviews, themed discussions on the effects of gaming on our culture and much, much more.

My name is Scott. My world is video games and podcasting. Chris Tyler joins half of the No Consoles team for an impromptu review of the 2015 Mad Max video game. Scott and Chris were browsing their favorite download services and were forced at gunpoint by a guy named Scrotus to give into their Max and game addictions when this game was discounted for a winter sale. Chris and Scott give a comprehensive review of gameplay, story content and graphics of this open world offering from WB games. Comprehensive except that we both completely forgot to talk about the soundtrack which, by the way, is also awesome. Sorry about that. You'll get to hear some of it on the podcast so judge for yourself. Bonus chat about the movies that inspired this fine piece of virtual play. So fire up your Magnum Opus, get yourself a mine sniffing canine friend and join us in the Pockyclypse for some hard driving, punching and scavenging. What a game! What a lovely game!!!

Bringing the world together with video games, No Consoles has its most international show to date as 'Murican boy Scott is joined by his regular co-host Dave, currently of Belfast, and special guest Blaine Dowler from the province of Alberta Canada. Also, see if you can catch the major moronic geographical blunder Scott makes. Sorry Blaine. It's that festive time of year so these three wise(ass) men decided to talk about their holiday wish list about what games they have their eyes on for 2017. We also discuss what "dream games" we would like Santa and his elves to create for us and give some of our New Year gaming resolutions that theoretically should be easier to keep than some lame diet promise to yourself. Additional tangents include lots of Final Fantasy stuff and the internationally common experience of choosing interesting leaders. The Yule log is burning, there's holiday music in the background and egg nog may have been consumed, so come along and celebrate with us.

Scott goes rogue from Dr. Bill to record this episode live at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Convention that he and several freaks attended May 14th-17th. They are joined by a cast of thousands (of cosplayers) and also some "normal" humans like Best Selling Author Brenda Cothern, Artist (Best selling to our table) Drew Blank and Stan the Man Lee's video game that I recorded myself playing. Also, a special appearance by the bane of parents everywhere, the one and only, world famous: Pikachu the Pokemon. Not recorded live are the hazards involved in staying an extra day in Atlantic City and finding yourself in Ballys at the roulette table at 3 in the morning.

In this episode, Bill, Scott and special guest Brian Rosen, do an updated review of Marvel Heroes 2015, the online ARPG that has won several accolades since its launch in June of 2013. Join three annoyingly honest freaks as they admit their (now fulfilled) fantasies about being a female Marvel super hero and beating up super villains. Also featured: a live arcade game segment with Scott Gardner that gives us indisputable proof of Gorf. Plus! The First Avenger: Captain America makes an appearance Disclaimer: Any rumors that blackmail was used to encourage Captain America's appearance are mostly baseless and unfounded until further notice. TV, movie and other anecdotal tangents abound True Believers, and The Old Men even talk about Marvel Heroes 2015 occasionally, so join us for another No Consoles. Excelsior!

Part two of Scott and Bill's attempt to talk about their experiences in the context of the history of videogaming. As usual, their propensity for straying off subject takes them into discussions of many non-video games, blasphemous tangents about console use and the very real danger of dirty mouse balls.
