A podcast about videogames

Tag: jam with the band

Episode 30: What kind of cough medicine does Dracula take?

Thirty episodes? Why has no-one stopped us yet? Befuddle your brain with the world’s worst ever Christmas cracker joke (yes, in February). Hear Greener’s grey matter seize up as he struggles to solve — or even adequately explain — The Witness. And shatter your mind’s worldview with perhaps the first ever better-than-awful Jam With The Band session. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Episode 29: it’s the Christmas episode!

Crack open the Christmas tree and wrap the tinsel around the sherry — it’s the bumper Christmas 2015 episode! We bring you our gaming moments of the year in the most audio-unfriendly format imaginable. We swap Christmas presents that could just have easily have been put on a conveyor belt straight into the bin. And we bring you our rendition of that all-time Christmas classic, er… You Can’t Hurry Love by The Supremes. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Email trp@therotatingplatform.com, tweet @rotatingpodcast, leave a present for us underneath the Facebook… tree, or stuff your message inside the turkey. (Next episode’s Space Ark genre is game openings.)

Episode 23: It put me off my evening cornflakes a bit

Celebrating 23 episodes! We demonstrate the amazing ability to all play the same game — the three of us simultaneously dodging bears and studying goat hair in the brilliant Metal Gear Solid V. J S Bach reaches an all-time career low thanks to our appalling Jam With The Band rendition of one of his greatest hits. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Episode 21: A clown car driving through an orchestra pit

Alan’s singing when he’s winning in car-football mashup Rocket League, while tanks are singing when they’re winning in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. We use Jam With The Band to pummel a pop song so brutally that it can’t even be recognised from its dental records. And we have a cappella tunes in honour of the late, great Satoru Iwata. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Email trp@therotatingplatform.com, tweet @rotatingpodcast, find us on Facebook (which is www.facebook.com), or put your message in one of those vacuum tube things — one of them pops out in Mark’s back yard. (Next episode’s Space Ark genre is fantasy sports games.)

Episode 15: You’ve Got Walkthroughs

Celebrate the production of another mp3 format digital file with us! We’ve been playing Danganronpa 2, Grow Home and Wolfenstein: The New Order. We’ve been prodding our DSs to make sure we ruin a much-loved classical tune for everyone, for all time. And it turns out Matthew has been stalking random strangers in order to complete late-’90s point-and-click adventures. We suspected as much. Plus: SPACE ARK.

Email trp@therotatingplatform.com, tweet @rotatingpodcast, give us a thumb at our Facebook page, or spell out your message with flower seeds and let us know when they’re fully grown. (Next episode’s Space Ark genre is stealth.)
