Episode 44 - Boss Battlers, Part 1

April 1, 2022

Happy April! No fooling from us, just the first half of a loooong episode about Boss Battlers. Featuring:

  • Frank telling us about an obscure game that's long out of print...or is it?
  • Brian revealing his woeful ignorance of anime, which amuses Jayson no end
  • Joe spending the entire episode trolling Frank (with an assist from Jayson)
  • The proud history of farting monsters and the world's oldest known written joke.

You're also more than welcome to comment on the episode page, or our Facebook page, or tag @ascentofgames on Twitter - whatever way you prefer to share your opinions with us, we'd love to hear them. As always, we appreciate your listening - stay safe out there!
