The guys share their tips and yours on how Microsoft can help the XBOX One try and catch up to Sony's PlayStation 4. With a great deal more certainty they recommend you listen to The Ride and then play new tunes from a couple favorite Milwaukee bands.

  • XBOX One/Scorpio Surpasses PlayStation 4/Pro
    • Hypothetically that is
    • We'll share our ideas and yours on what Microsoft needs to do in order to pull that off

Feels like living in a Tarantino flick with a grooving soundtrack from the recommended record Freedom Is Free. Shane is taking down fools in a 70's cop show and enjoys Big League Chew. Joel capitalizes on the increased value of the NES Classic and insists Side B is better. Karl struts down the road to ace bass and sings along to Persona 5.

They may need to eat a little soap in order to pull it off but ABOG Podcast starts a new trend and drops the explicit language tag going forward. You can now listen in the car with the entire family sitting there. Your family may prefer the latest from Ariana Grande (is she still relevant?), but the show is now safe to consume in any circumstance.

Joel, Shane and Karl review a game from one of their all-time favorite developers Guerrilla Games. The folks behind the amazing Killzone franchise. Does Horizon Zero Dawn impress them enough to play it as many hours as they did Killzone 3 during all the Sunday community nights?

Side B starts with a review of Little Deaths by Idle Bloom and gets festive for St. Patrick's Day with a new tune from Shane's local heroes The Real McKenzies. The ABOG attorneys are mentioned in Post Game specifically as it relates to all the copycat Band of Gamers. Find out why a greater emphasis will be put on the name "ABOG Podcast" going forward. This and much more in another episode of A Band of.... Err, ABOG Podcast.

The guys play with their phones more than a Facebook junkie to bring you a review of the new Nintendo mobile game Fire Emblem Heroes. Joel wears out a coffee table and Shane leaves skin on his steering wheel drumming along to Life Without Sound by Cloud Nothings. Karl is busy maintaining his beard and calls out Tony for his one star reviews.

Joel, Shane and Karl set up their past selves to help their present selves in order to get their future selves where they need to be. Then Shane tickles a jar of mayonnaise. Starts with the most intellectual game they've ever played and closes with the least. In between there's a review of Sleater-Kinney Live in Paris and a tune from Indonesian Junk.
