It's the end of an Era. The end of a Book. The end of... Season 1 of the Bucket List Gamers!Yes, after 54 long episodes we have finally discussed ALL 100 Games to Play Before You Die (according to Retro Gamer Magazine), and we're rounding it off with Super Mario World (1).I mean, it had to be, didn't it?Do you know the enemies from Super Mario World? How about the Bosses? No? Well, it's evident after recording this episode that we don't either, but we're here to give our relatively uneducated opinion anyway!Plus we talk about Dave the Diver, and what's to come in Season 2!**Huge thanks to our sponsors for this episode; Woodland Health & Wellbeing!**Woodland aim to help people be the best version of themselves through one-on-one mentoring, meal planning, help with exercise plans and general advice and support.They work with BODi, and offer various products from the Shakeology range and online workout videos - everything you need to keep both physically and mentally fit in an increasingly busy world.What's more, they have even created a FREE gaming themed Wellness Journal and planner exclusively for our listeners!Just reach out to Joanna on Facebook or Instagram to find out how they can help you, and grab your free planner.

We're so close to the end of the Retro Gamers '100 Games to Play Before You Die' list we can almost taste it!This episode we're discussing the penultimate game in the list, which is 2013's The Last of Us (26).Perhaps more cinematic experience than fully fledged game, Jay and Eddie discuss Naughty Dog's zombie-esque magnum opus... and they've actually both played it for a change!Sooo... tape up a few shivs, throw some nails in an old tin can, pour yourself a glass of vodka then stuff a rag in the neck of the bottle, and most importantly sit back, relax and enjoy the Second to Last of Us in Season 1!**Huge thanks to our sponsors for this episode; Woodland Health & Wellbeing!**Woodland aim to help people be the best version of themselves through one-on-one mentoring, meal planning, help with exercise plans and general advice and support.They work with BODi, and offer various products from the Shakeology range and online workout videos - everything you need to keep both physically and mentally fit in an increasingly busy world.What's more, they have even created a FREE gaming themed Wellness Journal and planner exclusively for our listeners!Just reach out to Joanna on Facebook or Instagram to find out how they can help you, and grab your free planner.

That's right, much like a long-past-it's-best sitcom or gaming franchise, we're dragging out Series 1 of the Bucket List Gamers Podcast just a little bit longer while we work on the final two episodes!So this time we're hoping to get a little bit of that Fallout TV Show rub by talking about Bethesda games, and the show itself!We also discuss the importance of Indiana Jones's whip, why Argonians are the master race and the future of the podcast itself!Enjoy!**Advertisement**We've said it before and we'll say it again... we don't really recommend you purchase anything from www.geekcrate.co.uk.Jay received 2 Pokemon crates that really weren't worth what they are asking for them, so from our personal experience we just can't in good conscience tell you to go and buy one too.BUT, one of our Patrons did purchase the Star Wars one, and that ended up being pretty decent so it seems like a mixed bag.If you REALLY are hell bent on buying one though, use our code 'BLG' at checkout for 15% off, and it'll help us out too!

That's right, for our 51st (NOT 50th!) episode we're taking a look back through the list and discussing all the games that we have covered so far.We promise that we DO have a good reason for stalling, and it will hopefully make the penultimate list episode far better than it would have been if we had rushed it out.Will that penultimate episode be next week? We wouldn't count on it... but for now you can listen to us talking about stuff we've already talked about. It's not as bad as it sounds, honest! I mean it's not a clips show, right?Enjoy!**Advertisement**We've said it before and we'll say it again... we don't really recommend you purchase anything from www.geekcrate.co.uk.Jay received 2 Pokemon crates that really weren't worth what they are asking for them, so from our personal experience we just can't in good conscience tell you to go and buy one too.BUT, one of our Patrons did purchase the Star Wars one, and that ended up being pretty decent so it seems like a mixed bag.If you REALLY are hell bent on buying one though, use our code 'BLG' at checkout for 15% off, and it'll help us out too!

This Episode Jay and Eddie are talking about a game they probably should have covered off as part of a previous episode; Turrican 2 (81) from 1991.The game that would eventually become a licensed Universal Soldier tie in, Turrican 2 takes side scrolling difficulty to a whole new level... and not in a good way!But Turrican takes a backseat in this episode, as the boys turn their attention to the gaming behemoth that is... Bluey!Why have two grown men played a game designed for toddlers? How could they possibly spend over 40 minutes reviewing it? Should they have put this kind of effort into reviewing the other games on the list?All good questions, perhaps you'll find the answers by listening in!Enjoy!

Well, according to Retro Gamer Magazine, no.That's right, this episode we're looking at The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (2) and for the first time in a while we've found a game we can be truly positive about!Don't worry though rant-fans, we still find time to have a little moan about a few things along the way!So whip out your Ocarina, pour a nice cool glass of Lon Lon Milk and settle in for over an hour of nostalgic guff!

Yes we know all the modern day lingo like 'Epic Fail', and we aren't afraid to use it!This episode Jay and Eddie are looking at two RPG games (or at least games with an RPG element) in Dungeon Master (56) and Deus Ex (49) as they continue their quest to complete the 100 Games to Play Before You Die list!As ever, the pair struggle to stay entirely on topic, with talk drifting off to the likes of Syphon Filter, Perfect Dark and Nightmare the TV Show.**Advertisement**During the episode we talk extensively about Geekcrate.co.uk and how we don't REALLY recommend it entirely.However, if you have had your eye on it for a while and there's no chance of persuading you otherwise you can use our code 'BLG' which will get you a cool 15% off (and give us a little kickback which helps us keep the lights on!)If you really want to support us it's a great way to do so AND get a little bit of something yourself, but if you'd rather just throw us a couple of quid (and get access to some exclusive content) you can check out our Patreon instead!

It's a triple header this time on the BLG Podcast as we limp ever closer to that 100th game on the list! We're looking three titles that really have no connection other than us not having much to say about them. They are Elite (21), Rez (84) and Advance Wars (93).We also talk about the two biggest bombshells to drop in the gaming world over the past week (hint: one of them is Pokemon related, and the other one is FAR bigger...)You may be curious why at one point in the podcast Eddie randomly starts laughing without any real context. Well, if you want to know the full story (and it's even more hilarious than it really deserves to be) we'll be putting the unedited, unfettered audio on our Patreon... so if that has piqued your interest head over there and sign up now!Huge thanks to our sponsors for this episode; Woodland Health & Wellbeing!Woodland aim to help people be the best version of themselves through one-on-one mentoring, meal planning, help with exercise plans and general advice and support.They work with BODi, and offer various products from the Shakeology range and online workout videos - everything you need to keep both physically and mentally fit in an increasingly busy world.What's more, they have even created a FREE gaming themed Wellness Journal and planner exclusively for our listeners!Just reach out to Joanna on Facebook or Instagram to find out how they can help you, and grab your free planner.

It's our birthday and we'll talk about turn-based strategy games if we want to!That's right, this episode Eddie and Jay take a look at two games from Sid Meier's Civilization series, namely Civilization 1 (62) and Civilization 4 (98).Aside from the fact it should obviously be called Civilisation and not Civilization, will we find fault with the seminal turn based strategy franchise?As promised, we also delve into PalWorld, discussing whether we think it will be the 'one' that finally topples the Pokemon empire (spoilers: it won't.)Enjoy!Huge thanks to our sponsors for this episode; Woodland Health & Wellbeing!Woodland aim to help people be the best version of themselves through one-on-one mentoring, meal planning, help with exercise plans and general advice and support.They work with BODi, and offer various products from the Shakeology range and online workout videos - everything you need to keep both physically and mentally fit in an increasingly busy world.What's more, they have even created a FREE gaming themed Wellness Journal and planner exclusively for our listeners!Just reach out to Joanna on Facebook or Instagram to find out how they can help you, and grab your free planner.

It's a little later than expected, but here's Episode 5 of BLG DLC!This time Jay is grilling Eddie on Easter Eggs and Cheat codes, and asking the question; Real or Hoax?Plus we rant about 'the good old days' and make a poorly aged joke about non-Patreon listeners not getting to hear this until Christmas.Oops!Enjoy!!**This was initially a Patreon Timed Exclusive, but now it's available here for your listening pleasure!**If you want to hear DLC episodes as soon as they come out, head over to our Patreon and sign up now!

Grab your favourite hydration drinks and join us as we discuss Metroid Prime (74), a Gamecube classic and complete reinvention of the archetypal Metroid style.Samus faces new challenges as she visits Tallon IV to take on a band of phazon-mutated Space Pirates, in what happens to be one of Eddie's favourite games.We also talk EVEN MORE about the Game On Exhibition at The Doncaster Dome, which we visited as a duo earlier in the month (head to the dlct website to find out more and book your tickets!) Enjoy!

As we close in on almost a year of Bucket List Gamer goodness the list dwindles ever lower! We had planned on being more upbeat this episode, but we're taking a look at Mega Man 2 (68) for the NES, so don't get your hopes up!In addition we also talk about the value placed on games, big companies carving up games for profit, and a little more about the Game On Exhibition at The Doncaster Dome (head to the dlct website to find out more and book your tickets!) Now after listening it MAY seem like we've been a little hypocritical in the things we discussed when talking about Iron Lung, but hopefully our lovely intelligent listeners will understand the difference between an Indie developer putting the price of a game up by a couple of dollars, and multi-million pound companies churning out half-baked re-masters for £50.Enjoy!  Thanks to our monthly supporters Harry Flynn RicFlair lee jones thesweatyllama ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
We've put it off for almost a year, but unfortunately we couldn't postpone it any longer... We're starting 2024 with a bang by looking at Shenmue (3) and Shenmue 2 (16)!Considered one of the best games OF ALL TIME, it's fair to say that we don't quite share that sentiment. Why? Well you'll have to listen to find out!For those of you that absolutely love these games, we're sorry... please don't hate us (or even worse, come after us!) we just don't get it.In the episode we mentioned the 'Game On' event that is taking place in Doncaster until April! It's looking like a fantastic mix of hands-on gaming and gaming history, and we'll be heading over to check it out very soon!If you'd like to find out more about the event, or even book tickets, you can check out https://www.dclt.co.uk/the-dome/activities/game-on/ for more info!

Not the most easily discussable games on the list, but we give it a good go anyway.We also talk Hogwarts Legacy on the Switch, the latest offering from everyone's favourite publisher Game Mill, and there's even a bit of Bluey for the dads... erm, I mean kids...This weeks episode is sponsored by Mayfly Games 'The Family'!

Strangely enough it's never actually mentioned in the episode that he was an Egg wearing boxing gloves... but he was, so there!Enjoy!
