Ep. 13: Why Is The Rock So Sweaty?
The Leader. The Muscle. The Charmer. The Wild Card. From the Beatles, to the Turtles, to The Fantastic Four, all of the best teams have these archetypes covered. But, does this setup apply to any characters? This week, we are creating our own A-Team out of NPCs from some of our favorite role-playing games. Todd flies on a rocket-powered bicep, Matt melts our brains with FNAF lore, and Andrew rides ze shoopuf.
Ep. 12: Our Dragons Don’t Raise Taxes
The Triforce. Metal Gear. Power Pellets. So many games are built around these kinds of seemingly insignificant instruments of unstoppable power. This week’s episode is dedicated to some of our favorite video game McGuffins...that one thing that could either save or destroy the world. Matt digs up a dead horse to beat some more, while Todd ignites a pretend race war and Kyle sings karaoke with some dragons.
Ep. 11: The Devil Went Down to My Potluck
Bible school, Sunday picnics, spaghetti dinners...we all have our own personal experiences with Religion, but thank Whatever-God-You-Believe-In that real religions aren’t like the ones in video games. In this episode, we unpack some bonkers religions found in video games. Andrew reps a giant whale, Todd flings peasants into the sunset, and Matt rocks out with his naughty bits out.
Ep. 10: Please Ignore the Zangoose Pee
Let’s face it, we’ve all dreamt of being a Pokemon Master...exploring the countryside, making new friends, and murdering children’s pets along the way. We’ve also all had that moment one-hit-KO-ing Erika’s Vileplume where we think we can do better. This week, Debate This! asks the question, “What would your Pokemon Gym do differently?”
Ep. 9: With Apologies to Vincent Diesel
Hollywood loves a good reboot. So that’s why we’ve decided to chase our dreams of being screenwriters and reboot our favorite classic sitcoms with video game characters. Todd whips out his extensive knowledge of Fallout, Andrew dredges up the worst Legend of Zelda sidekicks, and Kyle explores the interpersonal dynamic between Pokemon’s Red/Ash and Blue/Gary.
Ep. 8: The Only Thing Worse Than Charmy Bee is Cardi B
Hoo boy, the Chaotix...the B-listers of the Sonic Extended Universe. Anyone remember these guys? No? Well, we dove deep and brought you way too much lore around Vector the Crocodile, Espio the Chameleon, and Mighty the Armadillo. But, who’s the best? It really doesn’t matter.
Ep. 7: More Airtight Than Yoshi’s Butthole
Mario has had many sidekicks throughout his career. This week’s episode has us discussing which of his past partners is the best. A flu-addled Andrew goes toe-to-toe against a sleep-deprived Matt and things get...gross. Todd brings an old flame to the table.
Ep. 6: Friends Don’t Let Friends Commit Domestic Terrorism
Everyone needs a partner, even superheroes. This week on Debate This!, we discuss the best comic book bromances. Kyle introduces us to the best hard-drinkin buddy cop duo imaginable and Matt shows us how DC Comics is trying to be progressive. Oh, and Todd gets all America on everyone’s ass.
Ep. 5: Might, Magic, and Mario
In the last years of the SNES life cycle came a game that grew a whole new generation of RPG fans: Super Mario RPG. Fans are still clamoring for the sequel that never came. Instead, we received two new franchises as spiritual successors in the form of the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series. We discuss whether or not the new games successfully improved upon the original, but Todd instead focuses on why Mallow isn’t the most useless character.
SIDEBAR: Infinity War Discussion
The boys take a break from arguing this week as we discuss the latest MCU phenomenon, Avengers: Infinity War. No yelling, no insults, just boring old amicable conversation.
Ep. 4: Fear is the New Red Koopa
The Koopa Kids were introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3 as Bowser’s lieutenants, and have since acted as the world boss in many of the 2D Mario games. Only one of them can inherit the throne to the Koopa Monarchy, but who has the right to the crown? Kyle and Matt lay out a more democratic approach to leading the Koopa race, but Andrew leans in to the darker side.
Ep. 3: Ocarina, Schmockarina
This week’s Debate This! attempts to set the Internet on fire with our discussion of what is arguably the most beloved video game: The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. Is it truly a national treasure, or is it all hype? This might be a point of contention, but we can all agree the people who pronounce “Ocarina” with a hard ‘o’ (like joke) are all monsters.
Ep. 2: Robot Beanpocalypse
In this week’s episode of Debate This!, we discuss whether or not any of Eggman’s death inventions could have been made legitimate. Does the Drill Tank have any utility as a mining tool? Could the Mean Bean Machine be re-engineered to solve world hunger? Will Metal Sonic be the one to save us all in the inevitable robot apocalypse?
Ep. 1: Everybody Loves Beta-Ray
In our pilot episode, Debate This! hosts Andrew Henderson, Kyle Harper, Matt Cole, and Todd Thomas each represent an underrated Marvel hero in a free-for-all to determine who deserves more of the spotlight. Todd makes up a character and Matt gets passionate about Nic Cage.
