Game talk, game debate, and live game playthroughs. We're really bad at games. New episodes weekly!
Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to present, KYLE! We celebrate the history of this funny little podcast, and play Kyle's least favorite board game (but literally everyone else we know who has played it has enjoyed it), When I Dream.
Thanks so much for listening! Here are links to our personal handles if you want to follow us onward.

Episode 48 | Faithful WBAGers, it is with heavy hearts that we announce this will be the second-to-last episode of We're Bad At Games. We have loved EVERY MINUTE of doing this show, and we couldn't be more grateful to everyone who's been along for the ride with us. Check out the ep to hear more than this description could ever say. We play Hatoful Boyfriend again if it helps. Make sure to tune in next week for the grand finale of We're Bad At Games.
Episode 47 | We talk about Google's rumored entrance into the console wars, and how they might fit into the existing landscape with the Big 3. We then continue our quest for good grades, young love, and world domination in the Japanese pigeon dating simulator, Hatoful Boyfriend.
Episode 46 | We use the legendary videogamedunkey's awesome video about difficulty in games to jumpstart our own discussion about how video game difficulty affects enjoyment and replayability, and which games in our experience have done a particularly good or bad job at nailing the right difficulty. Then we do our first ever repeat game, but it's one that we should have gone back to a long time ago. Ladies and gentleman, back and better than ever, Hatoful Boyfriend.
Episode 45 // The World Health Organization (WHO?!?!) has just added gaming disorder to their book of diagnoses. We three experts give our opinion. We then play the best game we've ever played, ever, on the show, Coffeepot. It's not even worth describing, hearing is believing.
Episode 44 // We answer a faithful viewer and friend, Cesar's questions live on the show! We talk about our most memorable gaming soundtracks and how Patrick would change the ending to the new God of War (Dad of Boy, that is). We then play our first ever spoken parlor game, 20 Questions, where we read each others minds live on the show.
Episode 43 // We changed our recording schedule so we could give a prompt recap ep for E3! We give our biggest takeaways from gaming's biggest event, including Microsoft's increasingly promising market positioning, Sony's power move of epic trailers, and Nintendo's cornering of the indie game market. We're particularly pumped about The Last of Us Part 2, Anthem, Spiderman, and Pokemon Let's Go!
Episode 42 // Our discussion is kind of a crap shoot this week, but we do talk about the ongoing litigation between Fortnite and PUBG. So that's cool. Then we play Phrase Party Lite, which is about as fun as it sounds.
Episode 41 // We give our first timely discussion in WBAG history and give our upcoming expectations, hopes, and dreams for E3 2018. We then continue in our fumbling game of he-said she-said (Geli's back, btw), Aye Dark Overlord.
Episode 40 // We're officially over the hill! To celebrate our 40th, we're pumped to welcome our good pal and gaming connoisseur, Geli Workman to the show! Geli's intro includes a titillating discussion about Assassin's Creed, Red Dead Redemption, and female leads in video games. We then play one of our favorite games we've ever played: an improvisational game of pass-the-buck, Aye Dark Overlord.
Episode 39 // We talk about crossovers we'd love to see, like riding the Batmobile in Settlers of Catan! (Or more hopefully, Jedi in Super Smash) Then we enter the third world again, the virtual world, as we test our bomb defusing skills in the VR game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.
