Duckfeed Update: July 1, 2016

Exquisite Suffering

It's the first of the month, so it's time for the big Exquisite Suffering switchover!

The newest episode, available to our $6+ backers on Patreon, is all about Star Fox Adventures. Join in to hear us talk about an underwhelming entry in a series we inexplicably have affection for, while we simultaneously dive into one of the most offputting fandoms in the world.

Meanwhile, last month's episode about Golgo 13 is now available for all who want to hear us be baffled by anime.

Hex Crank Lives!

A while back, I had a short-lived blog about survival horror games called Hex Crank. It languished for a couple of years, and I felt really bad about that. So bad, that I decided to revive it.

You can find Hex Crank at its own dedicated site and even read the new article about Alone in the Dark. Which includes a video, and those will be a regular part of the whole thing going forward. Also, remember all those streams I announced here? You can find those there, too, as part of Hex Crank Live. I'm even covering a really rare game to celebrate: the elusive Rule of Rose.

I'm really proud of this, and I'd love if more people knew about it. So tell your friends, and come get spooked.

Join Us In Austin

Coming up, at the end of July, Gary and I will be coming to the Austin Classic Game fest to do a live show and hang out a booth. We'll have more details in the coming couple of weeks, but I wanted to remind you... It's at this website, and we'd love to see you.

New Tiers, New Shows

This is an important day for the network. We've decided to pitch some new shows to you, and add new Milestone Goals to our Patreon campaign. Here's the rundown of the new stuff.

  • $3,000 per month: Monster in My Podcast. Gary and Kole will do a thrice-weekly short form podcast churning through the entirety of the Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition Monster Manuals.
  • $3,500 per month: Days of Future Cast. Gary Butterfield and Jeremy Greer will do a loving and comedic takedown of the X-Men and the ridiculous X-Men animated television series from the 90's.
  • $4,000 per month: Radio Free Midworld. Kole and a rotating cast of community members will do a chapter-by-chapter book club of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
  • $4,500 per month: Let's Talk About the Passion. Gary and Kole will do an album-by-album analysis show of the total R.E.M. discography, including notable live performances and soundtracks.
  • $8,000 per month: The Crystal Chronicles. This is a big one! Would you be excited to hear Gary and Kole do a Bonfireside Chat-esque podcast about the entire Final Fantasy series? Then help us get to this goal.
  • $10,000 per month: Living Off of This. This is a rough estimate, but this is the amount of money we'd need to pull in from our Patreon, per month, in order for Gary and Kole to quit their jobs and start podcasting full-time.

That's a lot of new content, but we've been sitting on it for a while. We will be releasing pilots for these new shows intermittently, and some of the shows might be on a slow trickle even if we don't reach the goals right away. Hitting these goals will let us justify doing these shows instead of looking for regular, respectable work. We thank you for your generosity so far, and we're excited for the future.

The Pitch: Uploaded

Now would be a good time to re-subscribe to The Pitch. Also, you should listen to this trailer for The Pitch: Uploaded. Just sayin'.

Abject Suffrage for April

The polls are open for our next episode of Exquisite Suffering. If you're a $6+ Patreon backer, you can foist one of the following games upon us:

  • Coca Cola Kid (Game Gear)
  • Rising Zan: The Samurai Gunman
  • Sk├╝ljagger: Revolt of the Westicans (SNES)
  • Street Fighter: The Movie (PSX)

Kole guested on Video Games Hot Dog

We here at the network are big fans of the Video Games Hot Dog folks, and I was honored to join them for episode #237: "The Duke Boys". You can catch a short discussion of Dark Souls III before we break to talk about Samarost 3. Thanks again to Zack, Riff, and Kevin for letting my laughy-ass on the show.

Recent Releases:

Upcoming WOFF! Games:

  • Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.
  • Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara / Turtles in Time.

Duckfeed Live is now Duckfeed Presents

There's a whole show on the network you might not be aware of. It used to be called Duckfeed Live, but now it's called Duckfeed Presents. Check it out to hear a bunch of new episodes.


Once upon a time, Gary and I did a special called WOFFTRAX where we provided commentary on some opening sketches from WOFF!. You can hear this first special on the Duckfeed Presents feed now... and you can hear Episode 2 by becoming a $5+ backer on our Patreon. New episodes will come out quarterly.

Exquisite Suffering Whomps You with a Pugil Stick

There are some new happenings with the premium episodes of Abject Suffering. Our episode about Whomp 'Em just hit the store, and the episode about American Gladiators is available for $6+ backers until the end of February. I really recommend it. It's a riot.

We have a P.O. box now, and we'd love to get postcards and notes. Here's the address.

Pretty soon, Gary and I will be covering Shadow Tower for Bonfireside Chat. He's put together a helpful writeup if you've decided to play along. This should get you over some of those early-game hurdles, and help you understand some of the more esoteric systems.
