Grumpy Young Men

Today we talk about Face/Off, the 90s action movie that has defined the careers of both of its stars. We discuss the intense overacting, the ridiculous style, and wonder how a movie like this gets made at all.

Also, why we hate today’s Wordle answer. (Recorded May 23rd, 2022.)

This week we’re reviewing the $3 indie sensation that’s sweeping the nation, Vampire Survivors. We discuss the addicting and delightfully simplistic gameplay, the obtuse mechanics, and have a larger conversation about the price of video games today.

Also, why we hate Friday the 13th (aka Samuel got a flat tire). (Recorded May 16th, 2022.)

Today we’re talking about the video game worlds we inhabit, all the levels and maps and cities and fields and event a planet or two. We discuss our favorite level design techniques, what we like to see in more open-world style games, and Henry gets put on a list for enjoying murder.

Also, why we hate phone shopping. (Recorded May 2nd, 2022.)
