Quake III Arena. Bane of Degrees. Annoyer of Female Housemates. Enemy of Social Life. King of multiplayer FPS games on the Dreamcast circa 2000.
Yes Lewis and Ian step into the time machine that is their collective memory and travel back to the Space Year 2000 where they wasted so many hours playing Quake III Arena. Hear the journey on this, our 6th podcast. You’d think by now we would actually be good at them.
But wait! There’s more. For the first time ever in 101 Video Game Podcast history we welcome a special guest star, our friend Paul. Stupid Paul (his full name) lived with us at university and wasted his time playing Quake III as well. In many ways he is the ‘5th 101 Video Gamer’. If there were four rather than two of us. Luckily he escaped a life of blogging about old and obscure video games by getting married and having children.
And the ‘firsts’ don’t stop there. Listen out for the first ever 101 Video Games Podcast edit. Yes, Ian finally made a joke so distasteful that it was decided to overdub the offending section. We even got a mystery guest (not a special one) to do the overdub. See if you can spot it! Here’s a clue to find it – you’ll notice around the twelve-minute mark Ian suddenly makes even less sense than normal…
If we’re brutally honest this isn’t one of our best efforts, but it does have a certain charm. Hope you enjoy it.
