Podcast 16: Best Ever Console Final

Welcome to the 1st BEST EVER CONSOLE FINAL! I think we would all agree it’s a been one hell of a journey. Over the weeks we’ve seen Japanese women slapping each other, Big Daddy, Miss World Competitions, the image of Lewis in a red bikini, a picture of Shigeru Miyamoto with a turnip for a head and our first swears. There’s been some laughs… and some tears. Finally we reach the, er, final.

So fans (cough), enjoy this slightly poor sound quality podcast. Who will win? There’s only one way to find out, listen! Or just ask one of us. Whatever.

Podcast 15: Best Ever Console Semi Finals

The Semi Finals of any competition are always stressful. So close to the final yet so far. The Semi Final of The Best Ever Console Competition is of course no different.

If anything, it’s worse. If you think the pressure from the tabloids is bad on the England football team, you should try picking up one of the Video Game mags. ‘The Official Playstation Magazine’ has photographed the Playstation in a nightclub drinking before a big match, Edge has had feature after feature on consoles’ WAGs (with lots of pictures of course!) and just look at Official Nintendo’s front page:

It’s not easy for our judges either. You try to think of new things to say about a console after already discussing it three times.

Podcast 14: Best Ever Console Quarter Finals

It’s the Quarter Finals of the Best Ever Console Competition on 101 Video Games! More importantly it’s the swimwear section of the contest. Unfortunately the ‘PC’ brigade have nothing better to do than attack an innocent competition, somehow suggesting that forcing consoles to parade in front of our judges showing as much flesh as possible is demeaning and sexist. Poppycock!

Pictured: Lewis and Ian pose with last year's winner of the Miss Best Ever Console Contest

Still, that’s the world we live in. To show that 101 Video Games is not asking the consoles to do anything Ian and Lewis wouldn’t, our hosts will also be dressed in swimwear. So join Ian, dressed in a tasteful, mint green one-piece costume, and Lewis, in a risqué, cherry red bikini topped off with a delightful red bow, as they judge the prettiest and loveliest consoles in the world!

Podcast 13: Best Ever Console Round 2

LADIEEEEEEEZ AND genelmen, welcome to Round Two of the Best Ever Console Competition! This week we have a very special guest star on the podcast – Shirley Crabtree, aka BIG DADDY himself.

Big Daddy powerslams Lewis to show him who is REALLY boss.

Due to contractual reasons and the fact that he died nearly 13 years ago, Big Daddy says nothing during the podcast. But he did perform a couple of wrestling moves on Lewis and Ian while they were warming up for the recording (Lewis and Ian have a very strict warm up routine which includes leotards, pelvic thrusts and beer). This explains why they seem to slur some of their words, forget what they are talking about, get confused and accidentally swear. Again.

Podcast 12: Best Ever Console Round 1

It begins. The already legendary 101 Video Games Best Ever Console Contest! Or Competition! Or Thing! To be honest we’ve not properly agreed on a title.

Anyway, listen as Lewis and Ian discuss, debate, argue, call each other names and play rock paper scissors stone through 12 rounds of red-hot console on console action. And if you think that sounds dirty and disgusting you should have been at the recording.

 

Lewis and Ian's debate over whether the Amstrad 6128k is better than the PS2 becomes heated.

WARNING – We do swear a bit in this podcast. The debates we had became very passionate and strident and we sadly couldn’t stop our language occasionally reflecting that. Plus we drunk quite a bit of beer and got a bit silly. Sorry.

We want to hear your thoughts (please let us know you listen and you like us, pleeeeease). Do you violently disagree with any of our judgements? If so, really? Violently? Just calm down, it’s only video games. But do tell us, we’d love to hear from you! As always the best comment wins a 101 Video Games pencil.*

Podcast 11: Best Ever Console Prologue

Ah childhood. Scrumping for apples. Jumpers for goalposts. Pooh sticks. Quarter pound of penny sweets. Scraped knees and muddy faces. And of course, a time call your friend a d*ckhead because they happen to have a different console to you, to draw a picture of Sonic stabbing Mario through the heart and send it to Mean Machines and spend hours arguing that the Mega drive is definitely better than the SNES as in the Mega Drive Aladdin you get to use the sword but on SNES you can only throw apples I mean how rubbish is that?

 

Sonic and Mario exchange words. We spent ages looking for a proper old school picture of Sonic beheading Mario, but couldn't find one.

 

It’s the 101 Video Games That Made My Life Slightly Better Podcast! Lewis and Ian relive their school days by remembering all those pointless arguments about which is the better console. And what better way to do that than in an extremely pointless podcast?

Podcast 11 Best Ever Console Prologue

This Podcast also serves a prelude or prologue to a mini ‘season’ of podcast where we decide once and for all which is the Best Ever Console. Despite what we said earlier about those discussions being pointless. Yes.

So join us next week for Round 1 of the Best Ever Console Contest!

While you’re waiting, why not send us a picture you have drawn of the mascot of your favourite console weeing of the dead and bloodied body of a mascot from a rival video game system? The best will be printed on the website and receive a ‘101 Video Games’ Pencil!*

*Pencil not available.
