Episode 15: Dragon Con 2016

We are finally making our triumphant return after several months away! A combination of conflicting schedules, a month-long "cleanse," and flat out laziness kept us from recording but we are back and better than ever. During what is our longest episode to date, we discuss our recent trip to Dragon Con in Atlanta.  We will cover our favorite costumes, favorite vendors/comic artists/panels, things we loved about Con, things we regret not doing and give some tips for people new to Con.  Then we answer a small backlog of listener questions. It really is a very long episode. We're BACK!!

Episode 11: Bailey v. The Wind Waker

We are back from an unexpectedly long hiatus! This week, we talk about all things Zelda. More specifically, Bailey's recent attempt at playing and completing The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.  Drew loves the Zelda franchise, while Bailey does not. We discuss what we like and don't like about Zelda games, our favorite songs from the soundtracks, and answer listener questions about our gameplay experience. Also featured: sexy hockey players, Drew's secret love of Fallout Boy, a discussion of our favorite incarnation of Batman, and dick slap videos. But more importantly, dick slap videos. It's good to be back.

Episode 10: Until Dawn

In this week's episode, we talk about our experience (kind of) playing the survival horror adventure game Until Dawn for Playstation 4.  Also featured: recapping our trip to the big city, lots of food talk, iOS games we've been playing this week, and telling the story of Bailey standing up Drew and then our inevitable first date/kiss/living room mattress encounter.  It's a fun, sexy time for everyone.

Episode 9: If We Could Live in a Video Game…(with Special guest Sam Williams)


In this week's episode we have our first guest host, Mr. Samuel Williams, join us to answer a very important listener question: If we could live in any video game world, which one would we live in and why? We discuss A LOT of awesome game worlds as well as discussions of Valentine's Day, strip clubs, and our top 5 celebrity get-away lists. Also, a nipple gets lit on fire.

On this very special episode of Hops and Heroes, we take some cheap shots and then use neti pots.

Don't worry, we also answer your listener questions.

Episode 6: New Year, New Games


For our first episode of the new year, we decided to keep it simple and talk about some of the new games we got for Christmas, including The Witcher 3, Lego Dimensions, and Hyrule Warriors. We had a fun, sexy time recording this episode. Bonus features include: Bailey testing out the furry lifestyle, how Drew REALLY lost his virginity, and some very attainable and realistic New Year's Resolutions that aren't ridiculous at all.
