MONG Podcast 123 | Easy As ABC

This week was full of interesting news! Then again, it’s never not interesting when it comes to the MONG Podcast crew! Double negatives! The crew covered the possible Rise of Iron Destiny DLC leak, Pokemon Apex, a custom Pokemon game for the adult fan… get your mind out of the gutter. Last but not least, because there were three more stories covered, was the Nioh beta which recently ended on the PS4 and how developers Team Ninja are changing the game for the better based on feedback!

The Thought From Nowhere was asked by the prolific one, Chris Cobb, who wanted to know what developer the crew would put in charge of their favorite game series. The answers might surprise you… From Software Zelda title, anyone? Come hang out with us!

MONG Podcast 122 | MONG’s Next Top Super Hero

It’s been a couple of weeks, but the MONG crew loves their mothers and they took the day off to be with them. If you’re angry about that, you don’t love your mom. Inflammatory statements aside, the MONG podcast is back and in full effect! The crew went over some of the news from the past couple of weeks, from the unfortunate closing of the Disney Infinity studio to the fortunate delay of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Of course they had to talk about Captain America: Civil War too, so watch for head pats, those denote when spoilers are happening or stopping.

The Thought of the week was what super hero deserves their own video game. The crew had some interesting answers and likely some that… might not be unexpected, but definitely some names came up that most viewers and listeners have never heard of. Regardless, listen! Comment! Give us your opinions! We appreciate it all!

MONG Podcast 121 | Going Rogue

That’s right! The podcast is going rogue! Lashing out at the man! They’re taking over! Not really, but the topic of the week does involve the crew discussing what sidekick character they want to see buck against the curve and be their own man or woman. Who’s going evil? Tune in and find out.

As for the news of the week, there’s been some interesting stuff. The NX seems to have delayed the next Zelda, but at least we’ve got a release date now. On top of that, CD Projekt Red has announced the scary scale and ambition that they’ll be putting into Cyberpunk 2077. Last but not least, there’s the story that this might (definitely not gonna) be the last Dark Souls game… it won’t be, fun fact. Regardless, join us in the revelry!

MONG Podcast 120 | Grand Theft Auto: Mushroom Kingdom

Come, sit with us by the pyre and talk of the games we love. See what I did there? It’s episode 120 of the MONG Podcast and one of the longest in a good while! Mainly because there’s a lot of Dark Souls III talk as well as talk of the PS5 and how it just might not exist. Of course there’s MUCH more lovely words to have caress your earholes and the crew welcomes you to join them for it!

The topic of the week comes from the Cobb-Cuevas Double Catastrophe Crew, they don’t call themselves that but I’m calling them that, and found the cast deciding what Nintendo properties they want to see redone with a gritty and more mature theme. Imagine Luigi tossed into the Silent Hill franchise, the natural progression to Luigi’s Mansion… of course, who would think otherwise?

MONG Podcast 119 | The Return of the Podcast II: The Re-Castening

After two… three… some odd amount of weeks the crew has returned! Myles, Adam, Jordan and Jordan’s cat are all back and in full effect! Welcome back to the MONG Podcast ya’ll! They come back strong with a good episode (just like they all are) and they cover some fun topics about the news from this week… and some news from a last week thanks to Myles! Red Dead Redemption, Zombie Evolution and more!

The Thought of the week is what series we would like to see step into a different genre for one game? A grand couple of examples are Resident Evil Go-Kart Racing! and Metal Gear Beach Volleyball. What are you hoping to see? Myles was going to say Pokemon fighting game, but we can see how that turned out… the only good thing out of that game is Pikachu Libre, the cutest little rope hopping death machine.

MONG Podcast 116 | What Series Need to be in VR?

The world is full of new technology and VR is just an example of that awesome new tech. Of course, that’s not all the news that came down from our gaming deities above. Battleborn has officially gone Gold and if you didn’t get the chance to try it (or failed to multiple times) a beta is happening! Final Fantasy XV may have had its release date spoiled and Microsoft may be bringing the worlds of PS+ and Xbox Gold closer! The console wars just might end! We know they never will, but a guy can be optimistic. 

If the news isn’t what you’re sticking around for, we know, it’s our beautiful faces, the Thought From Nowhere this week was of course concerning VR! What existing series needs to be in VR? The answers might astound you… or not, they’re still awesome. It’s surprising that no one mentioned Mirror’s Edge or Sunset Overdrive...

MONG Podcast 115 | Location Location Location

Through rain, sleet, snow, hail and sickness the podcast crew is here to bring you another hour of joyous (mostly) video game related banter! This week they went over the Lionhead studios closure, where Myles shared his personal opinions on one Peter Molyneux, and they even plumbed the depths and covered the announcement of Frogware’s foray into the insane with their next Lovecraftian title, and so much more! 

The thought of the week was “What’s your favorite video game setting?” Whether it was a decision fueled by nostalgia, genuine awe, or lore, each member had unique answers. Does anyone know what the planet Pokemon takes place on is called?

MONG Podcast 113 | The Fireside Firewatch Firecast

The crew decided to take a departure from the norm this week by only covering one story each and taking that extra time to do a nice little spoilercast. Can you guess what it’s on? Probably, if not, it’s Firewatch. However! Before the Firewatch spoilercast, they covered the news of the beautifying of Knights of the Old Republic, the revival of Carmageddon, and the continued news of the Kojima-Del Toro dream team! So join us for another fun week of talking about our beloved hobby, games, and jokes. Apparently Parrapa the Rappa was on one caster’s mind! 

Keep in mind, the spoilercast portion CONTAINS SPOILERS. So don’t watch past that bit if you don’t want to be spoiled on the plot of Firewatch… but do come back to finish and see what the cast crew thought about the game!

MONG Podcast 112 | Should Duration Determine Price?

Have you ever picked up a game and been finished with it 3 hours? Well the MONG Podcast crew have too and that was the Thought from Nowhere this week… kinda. They went in on the question of if a game’s duration and features should determine its cost. The answers may shock you, or seem absolutely reasonable because Myles, Adam and Jordan are quite reasonable human beings. Regardless, they did cover some actual news as well. Kojima made a return to the podcast with Norman Reedus’ possible tease of a collaboration to come, Watch_Dogs 2 has been confirmed to little fanfare, Quantum Break had a bevy of news this week and Dark Souls III is getting pre-order incentives while the enemies of Dark Souls I are being made to look silly. On top of that, Bethesda has confirmed, priced, and divulged information on the Fallout 4 DLC and last, but most certainly not least, is that PlayStation VR will be on the market this Fall! If you’re not excited, you. Should. Be.

MONG Podcast 111 | Diamonds in the Rough

Everyone should be happy I’m devoted to making this look good or I would have just typed “Gone to Play Firewatch” here and left to do just that. HOWEVER! I’m in it to win it and so is everyone else on this week’s episode of the MONG Podcast! The crew goes through and covers topics from the week including the return of the Overwatch beta, the reveal of The Culling, Metal Gear Solid V’s upcoming DLC, Firewatch photos, David Gaider taking the throne and what happens when you smash two portals together while inside of them in Portal… personally, I think the computer should have crashed hard and never turned back on.

The topic of the week was Diamonds in the Rough, or, what games the crew thought were the most underrated. Some interesting and nostalgic gems were brought up and Myles’ pick will surprise no one… he hasn’t talked about it 490491 times before. Regardless, listeners and viewers, what’s the most underrated game in YOUR opinion? MONG!

Also, if you’ve got conversation topics for a Thought from Nowhere, contact us at contact.mong@gmail.com and tell us! We’d love to talk about what you think is important and (if you want) we’ll even read your name (or tag) out on the air!

MONG Podcast 108 | The Legendary Debate: Lara v Nate

Welcome to episode 108 of the MONG Podcast! The crew genuinely hopes you’ve come here for fun, because that’s what you’re gonna get. This episode contained the most talk of Gone Home and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture ever in any podcast not specifically about either of those games. We’re secretly trying to win the #1 Conversational Gone Home/Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture combo cast award. All jokes aside, the crew did cover stories such as the massive deluge of new Division info, Phantom Dust’s (hopeful) revival, the coming of the Danganronpas to the Steam store and Journey interactive LIVE. The Thought from Nowhere this week was the most heated yet with the crew debating who’s better, Lara Croft, or Nathan Drake. Fun fact, Nate and Debate rhyme! Come have a fun time! Watch the podcast… thine! Thanks to Tabata Silver for the Thought Out of Nowhere!

MONG Podcast 107 | How About Those Mini-Games?

Welcome to episode 108… 107 of the MONG Podcast. This week the crew covers the price of the Oculus Rift, is it too much? Will it be worth it? The return of Psychonauts and the re-release of the original onto the PS4 console. On top of that, Sony tried to trademark the term “Let’s Play,” what’s up with that? As the disembodied voice of the podcast, my opinion is that it’s kinda dirty and silly. Anyway, watch the podcast, hear the crew’s input and opinions, form your own opinions, have fun! Join us for the time of your podcast life! Especially when we get to talking about the mini-games we love… or hate!

MONG Podcast 106 | Happy New Year!

Welcome in the new year with the MONG Podcast crew! It's 2016 so they're gonna talk about ALL of the vide... lets be honest, the majority of this podcast, since they wanted to bring the podcast into the new year in a relaxed manner, is talking about whatever they wanted to... and apparently they REALLY wanted to talk about Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens A LOT. If you've not seen it, spoiler warning right now. Also, it's been a minute and there was a holiday season, why haven't you seen it yet? Anyway, come join the crew for some lightsaber flinging fun! 

Also, Myles is going ahead and apologizing for the loud moments in the podcast. Trolls are a horrible kind of "people."

MONG Podcast 105 | The Deckard Cain-ining

Come stay a while and listen! The crew was going to talk about video game news, but then they realized the one true video game news that really matters is only Deckard Cain. Be at peace and listen to the podcast! 

However, since they have to have an actual blurb here, the crew did talk about quite a few other things. They lightly (extremely so) touched on the topic of what Kojima is up to now… maybe, no one really knows what that man is doing. On top of that, they touched on Noby Noby Boy finally being finished after so many years, Destiny’s new new micro-transactions, the Right2Game campaign, the studio formerly known as Irrational’s hiring board, the new Nintendo controller (maybe) and kinda about the Bloodborne collectibles heading our way.

The Thought of the week was video game movies in general, some of them are kinda good, some of them are absolutely horrible. Come stay a while and listen and may Deckard Cain be with you!

Blooper at the end.

MONG Podcast 103 | Do Day 1 DLC and Retailer Exclusive Pre-Order Bonuses Hurt the Gamer?

Myles wants to go ahead and apologize for the atrocious quality of his mic for this podcast. He thought he switched from the webcam over to his proper mic midway through the cast… needless to say he did not. This was why he didn’t want to record last week… oh well! Anyway, this week the crew talked about… well, lets be honest, mainly they talked about Mass Effect: Andromeda, but the two new WB Montreal DC games and the current issues with Bloodborne’s online were mentioned too! Thanksgiving was recapped and they ended it all with a talk about a timeless topic, day one DLC and retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses. What do you think about the Mass Effect news? What about Trump running for president? PUPPIES?! Tell it all and hear what the crew has to say on episode 103!

MONG Podcast 102 | What Franchise Can SEGA Resurrect to Save Themselves?

The answer is nothing, lets be honest. However! You should still watch the first and last episode 102 of the MONG Podcast to find out what answers the gents gave to this impossible to answer query. On top of that you can find out the truth behind the name of the protagonist in Mass Effect 4, what era the EA Assassin's Star Wars title takes place in, what game Naughty Dog has up their sleeves for the PlayStation 4 and the answers to life itself! Kind of, you can kind of find out this information, or at least listen to Myles, Jordan and Adam speculate. Everyone loves speculation and it sounds like a kinda dirty word! Come speculate with us on the MONG Podcast!

Can you handle the epic-ocity that is… the episode after the 100th? The MONG Podcast crew, you love ‘em, Adam, Jordan and Myles, are at it again with episode 101. They hit the big stories this week, such as the major departure in gameplay that Five Nights at Freddie’s next horrifying(?) adventure will take, the continuing Kojima-Konami battle for who gets the last word… even though it’s just Konami yelling and if they’re gonna get their hands on the sweetest release come November 10th… that SWEET sweet Jones Nuka-Cola. They also reminisce on which games they loved but were shunned by the gaming community, or were over-looked due to the titan-esque stature of other releases that year. You know it’ll be a barrel of fun, just like always!

He was too excited for episode 100! Join the crew as they talk about Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, the price drop of the PS4, the names of currencies around the world and as they take the mantle for number one customer service in retail stores podcast!

Join the crew as they delve into the deepest darkest parts of their psyches and investigate what games have driven their inner completionists to the surface, as well as which games have shed light upon their sociopathic tendencies.

MONG Podcast 98 | Wait, Why Did I Need a Key?

The thought from nowhere was video game tropes. Why did I need a key for the wooden door when I’ve got a bazooka? Wait, where are these infinitely spawning soldiers coming from? What exactly is bringing me back to life? All of these questions and more were asked! Join us!
