Episode 303: Occasional Musketeer Groupies

This week Sean regales us with his weekend adventures about finally getting a new TV.  In TV talk we discuss the Netflix show, Mania; the return of Lethal Weapon without Riggs; and Survivor's opening its doors to Canada.  In games, Tycko did something he hasn't done in a very long time: he turned on his PS4, and he pressed more buttons and children may or may not have been killed as a results (virtual children, not real ones!).

In the news this week, Sony has finally given in to Cross-Platform Play; Spider-Man could be the "Iron Man" of the MCU of gaming; and Red Dead Redemption's large file size might be as a result of some new ground-breaking gaming innovation!

We also have an interview with Matthew Rose, the Producer of Ubisoft Toronto's first original IP, Starlink: The Battle for Atlas.

Episode 301: Original Modern Geeks

We're back after exactly 3 months to the day! Tycko and Sean have returned refreshed and ready to enter a new era of The OMG! Hour.  You're going to find some things the same and some things not quite the same.  We're geeks.  We're geeks for more than just gaming so why hold back on what we discuss here?  Nothing's off the table now: Video Games, Board Games, TV, Movies, Toys, you name it.  If we like it, we'll talk about it.

In today's episode we cover some of the stuff we've been doing and playing since you last heard from us.  We discuss Pop! Vinyl figures what why they seem to popular, and the current state of the DC Cinematic Universe and what a mess it is.

In game reviews, this week we cover both The Garden Between, a fantastic time-bending puzzler, as well as the incredible Spider-Man from Insomniac Games.

Episode 300: The One with the End of an Era

IN LOVING MEMORY OF SYD BOLTON

Syd Bolton has been a part of The OMG! Hour for over 4 years. We first met him in 2012, on our 13th Episode, when we interviewed him about the Brantford PC Museum and his video game collection. in 2014, he became a regular contributor to the show, as our Gaming Archaeologist, with his weekly "Lost Treasures" segment.

Syd was going to be a guest host on the show for Episode 299, and was planning to record yet another Lost Treasures segment for our epic Episode 300 this week. His untimely passing will leave a hole in our hearts and the heart of The OMG! Hour for a very long time.

Syd has been a treasured part of our lives for the past 6 years and he will be truly missed. He has become our ultimate Lost Treasure.

Rest In Peace
Syd Bolton
