Debug Mode: Top 10 Games of 2016

It’s been a while since I made a Debug Mode video. In fact, I got all the way through 2016 without producing one even though I intended to do so.

I still have a bunch of ideas kicking around for topics. I want to move away from “reviews” like I’ve done in the past and talk more about concepts or specific aspects of games I find interesting.

2016 had so many great games. I wanted to comment on my favorites. So this is still more review-ish than I will probably do in the future, but I’m fairly happy with the way it turned out.

And it’s a list, of course. People like lists. I like lists. Lists are fun. Psychology, eh?

The Workshop #4 – Parental Advisory: Not Very Funny

Our attempted serious discussion about why mainstream American Christianity always seems to be producing bad imitations of popular culture gets derailed and we end up making a lot of jokes that might only be funny to us.

Be sure to head over to Amazon to pre-order our Rage Against the Machine devotional entitled 30 Days of Rage: A Study of the Wrath of God available for pre-order now. Yeah. Definitely search for that.

The Workshop #3 – So This is the New Year

Happy New Year from the least-sarcastic parts of our hearts!

On the first episode of this brand-new not-yet-too-terrible year we talk resolutions, the “Matt Takes” Twitter account, parody Twitter accounts in general, and Star Wars including a non-spoilery discussion of Rogue One.

This episode was recorded before Carrie Fisher (and Debbie Reynolds!) passed away so that’s why we didn’t mention her in our Star Wars talk. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that here. What a bummer.

I’ve been re-watching the original trilogy recently and I’ve been impressed by how much Fisher – and all the lead actors, really – brought to their roles. Star Wars is truly greater than the sum of its parts and Carrie Fisher was a significant part of making that happen.
