GameInvasion Podcast – Episode 9 – Surprise Surprise

You ever had a game sneak up on you and tap you politely on the shoulder, then more insistently, then suddenly demanding your attention? You ever been completely, utterly surprised by how much you didn’t expect to appreciate a game? Did a game just pop out of a cake at your bachelor/bachelorette party?

This week on GameInvasion, join Carl Wilhoyte from, Nick and Katie Hammer, and Nick Weber as we talk about games that came outta nowhere to be some of our favorite titles. We also discuss the glacial slog of Nick Hammer’s futile trek through Final Fantasy X HD, pinball wizard robots, Star Trek Online boob sliders (again), and why there’s no game that simulate police paperwork.



If you’d like to submit a topic for discussion, email us at videogames (at) or add your own snarky thoughts below. We’ll promise we’ll read every one’s mean comments and cry lots.

If you really like our podcast, be sure to share us on Twitter, Facebook, and Podomatic. That would mean so very much to us. *sniff*
