The whole Pod-cast crew is back together, although unforeseen circumstances mean Bryan and Cameron have to take on most of the conversational workload. AS USUAL.
Fortunately their metaphorical quiver of metaphorical talking arrows is metaphorically full, so prepare to be entertained by means of getting shot repeatedly. The usual conversation topics of concerts, Heroes, and whether Cameron can ever use a calendar do indeed come up, but we also leave the reservation and explore the wild hinterlands of Cameron's potential future as a mime, which is perhaps the most overlooked topic to date.
E3 has come and gone, and all the Whales are Whales crew can think about is not video games. Well, except for Zachary, Cameron and Stephen - they have video games on the mind and they're writing about them on the padded walls they call interior decoration.
On this week's Unnamed Video Games Podcast, the aforementioned Whales are Whales members go through all the big games announced at E3 and provide some hot takes. Does Zachary actually care about any of the games announced? (Spoilers: Yes!) Is Cameron going to play Anthem? (Spoilers: Probably!) Is Stephen excited for Team Sonic Racing? (Spoilers: Definitely!) Be sure to listen all the way to the end to hear Ben's exciting opinion on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Zachary and Cameron are back to talk about E3 on this week's Unnamed Video Game Podcast. While the rest of the Whales crew doesn't want to talk about video games, Zachary and Cameron decided to talk too much about them to make up for it.
For the next two and a half hours, enjoy pleasant (and profanity laden) conversation from your two precious boys as they tackle everything E3 from EA to Nintendo. There will be opinions and facts. Will you be able to sort them apart? Will their predictions for the big show come true? Will Zachary get his Xenoblade X Switch port? Will Anthem actually be good? Only time will tell, but they'll tell you what they think in the meantime.
Perhaps the biggest mistake since accidentally killing Bryan was accidentally not doing that after all. The King of Hosts himself joins the gang (aka: his brother) for a Rollicking Good Time which is our official pseudonym for Questions Questions Questions!
Get ready for some outrageous, hilarious, and totally BONKERS commentary from the bros as they answer randomly generated and seemingly mundane questions about themselves and what they think about objects in this here universe!
Hi, it's Zach (and Zach pretending to be Cameron)!
You may recall a few months ago we were doing a little bonus show called WASD. It was just a place for Cameron, myself and our friends when willing could gather around to talk about games instead of the stuff or things we would talk about on the pod-cast. After a while, we knew we wanted to turn it into its own show, but we just weren't sure on the form it should take.
Thus here we are today with the Unnamed Video Game Podcast (Box Art Not Final). It was born from a dumb joke in the episode you're about to listen to. After recording, Cameron and myself kind of liked the ring of it so we're sticking with it for now. Of course, the box art isn't final so we could end up changing the name at any time.
But for now, just sit back and enjoy this spoiler-filled discussion on God of War (2018). We do have a small discussion at the beginning about our histories with the franchise for those who still want to listen to something without being spoiled, but you better jet as soon as that's finished. We drop the biggest spoiler in the game right after the spoiler wall goes up so you've been warned.
Oh, and feel free to let us know what you would want from a video game podcast. This spoilercast is sort of a special occasion. We would like to record a few episodes going over what we're expecting from E3 in the coming weeks, but please let us know what form you would like that to take. Cameron and I both have ideas, but we'd love to hear from you as well.
Well, that's about it. Enjoy!

Okay, so we're pretty sure Bryan is dead. Fortunately, however, he left in his last will and testament a requirement that Cameron host Season 4 Episode 8 of the Whales are Whales Pod-cast! Gotta love how that guy thinks ahead.
Ben and Abigail join Cameron for the eulogy as they opine over haircuts, nerve-wracking job interviews, and the physical details of Abigail's apartment! What, did you expect to find pictures here?
It's been nearly two years since Cameron and Bryan's fateful trip to California. Apparently they enjoyed each other's company enough to try another road trip, and this time they brought friends!
Stephen and Abigail join the pair on a long long long trek to Cameron's homeland of Oneida, Kentucky. We hope you enjoy listening to CKAKKKCKAKFKACKCVKEKCEKCKE oops we recorded in the wind

Have you ever looked at Bryan and thought: "man, that fellow has a whole lot of problems?" Well, despite being mildly offended, I am also happy to inform you that this is THE EPISODE FOR YOU! Ben and Abigail join forces to fix Bryan's problem one problem at a time. That was especially fortunate since we only had time for one problem! So listen in to see how Bryan can go from bad and horrible to a functional human being in half an hour!
So this episode kinda shoulda gone up a month ago, but things (lots of things) got in the way. So enjoy this exclusive look at NEVER BEFORE SEEN AUDIO FROM THE WHALES ARE WHALES ARCHIVES THAT EXPOSES ALL about what Ben, Cameron, and Bryan thing about nostalgia, Pokemon, and Telling Compelling Stories. :)
Abigail, Bryan, and Cameron are on a seemingly mundane road trip when something goes horribly, terribly, TERRIFYINGLY wrong. Stuck at a seemingly abandoned motel in the scraggly foothills of western Kentucky, they soon find themselves battling for their very survival, and THEIR SOULS. (aka, their eyeballs it's super scary)
Edited by Bryan.
Bryan wasn't on the episode this week, so he has only a cursory knowledge of what was discussed! But he's at least fairly certain words were involved at some point, or at least distinctly word-like utterances.
At a best guess, though, he would venture to say it included video games, neat things that only '90s kids know, and lots of mostly pointless screaming.
He would also venture to say it sounds like a grand old time and you should give it a listen!
Despite knowing each other for at least seven decades, Bryan and Cameron came to the startling realization they had never asked each other any questions. Intent to fix such a glaring gap in their legendary friendship, the pair set out to ask each other a few kinda interesting questions and call it a day!
The comedy quarter is back! Get ready to guffaw yourself silly as Ben, Bryan, Cameron, and Stephen zing you with zingers and chuck you some chuckles. Oh, we also talk about trading card games for about 40 minutes. But it's actually pretty interesting!
Having failed to properly exchange Christmas, New Year's, or even Valentine's Day gifts, the irrepressible Whale crew decided to use the birth of NASCAR as a surprisingly appropriate excuse to finally give each other their long awaited gifts. And they were even late for that. Oh well.
2017. It means a lot of things to a lot of people. So it only seems proper to have a lot of people say a lot of things about 2017! Despite newborns and busy busy choo-choo-kachoo crazy lives, Bryan somehow managed to lassle together the gaggle of cetacea in a metaphor as varied and pseudo-comprehensible as the episode itself! Enjoy!
We done goofed. We had babies and got busys and neglected our solemn duties as people who record ourselves and publish to the internet and for that we done goofed. Fortunately with advanced AI algorithms and text-to-speech we have been able to piece together an almost two hour accurate simulation of Bryan, Cameron, and Zachary rambling about swallowing pills and listening to live music. We trust you will like it or at least not tell us if you don't!
If you want some pithy and funny descriptions of what happened over 2017, then click the play button on this show and you can hear Bryan's neato-frito voice reading off every single Pod-cast episode description from 2017. I don't have much more to say because of how perfect a description that was, so instead I shall leave you with a hamster:

Though we may be banned from talking about video games, we aren't banned from playing video games! Turns out the Pod-cast crew played a nice collection of video games over this last year, and in a throwback to Disembodied Voices, they decide to talk about them all at length, and give away a few prestigious supplications while they're at it!
Ben, Bryan, Cameron, Stephen, and Zachary (aka: everyone except Abigail) join metaphorical hands to reminisce about a year of gaming gone by. Oh, also Cameron has a really good rant about how Destiny 2 ruined everything in the world. Poor Cameron.
