ABOG Podcast - Video Games and Music
A young at heart trio keeps you up-to-date with the fast-paced video game industry. They also help you discover new music by recommending a record and playing a fresh tune from an independent artist.

The mailman stiff arms his way to the fantasy football cookies while Joel tries to resist this year's Madden title. Shane paints a beautiful picture drifting his way down the block but needs to stop and catch his breath. Karl bangs the skins and relies on simple clicker gaming for relaxation.

Joel gorges on meatballs, reviews the XBOX One S and decides how much more planetary exploration he'll be doing in No Man's Sky. Shane wants a new pair of shoes in order to feel guilty for not running and hopes for CD playback in the PlayStation Neo. Karl preps for a Wonderbook cross Vita system while playing two games that together equal one.

As Batman it's possible Karl could save Shane and his PlayStation Vita from any more agonizing games of Sound Shapes, but he can't save Joel from the green screen of death nor his impulsion to push his 4K TV with an XBOX One S.

Karl is enjoying a two week holiday by playing Rocket League from a beach house and upgrading his phone to capture Pokemon. Shane beats The Crew, creates a new rating scale for racing games, and surpasses his former high score in beer consumption. Rather than beer chasing Shane, which he'd likely lose, Joel has been chasing his friends list in Super Mega Baseball and is starting to rack up some decent scores.
