Out Of The Level



Join host Tom and his no-homo life-partner Brad as they delve deep into whatever gaming topic they see fit for the week. Also sex.


  • Out of the Level #15 - Vegas EVO2015 Edition

    28/07/2015 Duration: 47min

    Tom and Brad dive into Vegas for the biggest fighting game tournament in the world.

  • Out of the Level #14 - B&Ter Episode Zero


    We take a break from our normal format to truly bring a show about nothing; a banter-style test run of a podcast within a podcast. Instead of talking about videogames, it's everything and anything else in one big bowl of spaghetti. Spoiler warning for Game of Thrones from 1:03:45 onward. If you haven't read into DWD, you might have a bad time.

  • Out of the Level #13 - E3 For Thee

    16/11/2013 Duration: 01h03min

    We shoot the shit on E3 2013 and make boneheaded predictions regarding the futures of Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo but with strong conviction behind our utterances. We had fun doing it at least. Music: Killer Instinct - TJ Combo Theme Console Wars - 1990

  • Out of the Level #12 - Moviefone and Xbone

    12/11/2013 Duration: 01h41min

    We're still slogging through the archives, and finally polished this gem to an acceptable level of mediocrity (yes, a certain someone botched their audio.) For the first half we discuss and somewhat spoil Iron Man 3 (skip to 23:40 to avoid) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (skip to 38:40 to avoid). Second half focuses on the Xbox One; what we think of the DRM policies and if Microsoft is making the right gamble. Also, because of our tardiness, it includes an updated segment where we totally disregard everything we determined from the previous segment. Awesome. Music: Bibio - Light Seep Ilkae - Vim Jet Set Radio Future - Concept of Love

  • Out of the Level #11 - PS4 and Some More

    02/11/2013 Duration: 01h09min

    In classic fashion, an episode recorded months ago sees the light of day and just in time for the PS4's impending release. We try and bury our biases to have a discussion on the impact the PS4 will have for Sony. Music: Kido Yoji - Won't You Come Again (Instrumental) Daft Punk - Giorgio By Moroder Jaga Jazzist - Animal Chin

  • Out of the Level #10 - Wii U Slam and Christmas Wham

    30/07/2013 Duration: 01h05min

    They said this episode would never come out. Whoever THEY are, they were almost right. Now that the show is actually salvaged, listen to the best Christmas show ever released in July. The Wii U is dissected, and Christmas stories are divulged. Happy Kwanzaa. Music: Super Mario World 'Super Mario's Sleigh Ride' [Map 2, Overworld BGM] Sonic 3D (Saturn) Music: Diamond Dust Zone Act 1 Christmas NiGHTS: Christmas in Nightopia

  • Out of the Level #9 - Arcadia Mania (Part 2)

    16/08/2012 Duration: 52min

    Brad and Tom are back to discuss the arcade scene of the present, how you can never go back home, and the rules of "Jinx". They try their best to not sound like crotchety, old men, but it manages to seep out anyway. However, much praise is lavished upon the few standouts (namely Galloping Ghost Arcade), while the rest are commended (or RAVAGED) for their particular qualities. Music: Super Street Fighter IV - Character Select Arcade Ambience 1992 Dave and Buster's Commercial Game Works Commercial

  • Out of the Level #8 - Arcadia Mania (Part 1)

    08/08/2012 Duration: 49min

    Delving into the deep, dark pits of their memories, Brad and Tom drudge up several experiences and reasons why arcades were the "bomb diggity" in the 90's. In fact, they got so worked up, they ran out of time to talk about arcades in the present! Oh well - there's always next week... Music: Street Fighter II - Character Select Arcade Ambience 1992 Pac-Man Theme (REMIX)

  • Out of the Level #7 - LAN-tasm

    23/04/2012 Duration: 01h01min

    For lucky episode 7, cohorts Tom and Brad delve into the merits of the LAN experience and why it's still worth it to lug your computer to your friend's basement. This would have been a convincing argument, except we only use our crappy personal experiences as evidence. Oops. Music: Sonic Unleashed: Apotos - Windmill Isle Day Streets of Rage 'Drop and Roll' OC ReMix [Fighting in the Street]

  • Out of the Level #6 - Showing Up to Class

    25/02/2012 Duration: 01h09min

    We're not dead! I mean...emotionally sure, but we managed to haul our husks back for another show. There isn't a single topic as we usually do, but we dabble with a GOTY-type discussion. It quickly and frequently gets side-tracked, but that's what we're all here for anyway. Relax and enjoy. Music: Sonic CD (JP) - Palmtree Panic (Present) Sonic CD (JP) - Collision Chaos (Good Future)

  • Out of the Level #5 - Dreamcast

    09/09/2011 Duration: 01h13min

    In celebration of the Dreamcast's 12-year anniversary, Brad and Tom wax and wane on the merits of SEGA's finest (and final) console, along with their fondest memories of it. VMU's, SegaNet, Shenmue, SoulCalibur - it's all here people! Somehow, the Jaguar, GameCube, Xbox, and PS2 are all talked about as well. It's hard to stay focused sometimes.

  • Out of the Level #4 - Blizzard Entertainment

    11/08/2011 Duration: 01h38min

    Tom and Brad are back to discuss nonsensicals and cattywompii. This time, they set their sights on Blizzard Entertainment a.k.a. one of the best developers ever. Every Blizzard PC release (Diablo and onward) is discussed, with plenty of non-sequiturs to fill in the gaps. And yet, there's only one mention of Rock N' Roll Racing. Sorry about that.

  • Out of the Level #3 - Mortal Kombat

    03/08/2011 Duration: 01h03min

    Hosts Tom and Brad are up to their regular, goof-ball shenanigans. This time, it's all about the Mortal Kombat series. Talk is mostly confined to the 2D entries (i.e. the only ones worth discussing), along with the fantastic Mortal Kombat 9. Learn about our heroic hosts' introductions to the series, sprinkled with random bitching. It wouldn't be a show without it. Also, forgive us for the audio issues.

  • Out of the Level #2 - Gears of War

    15/07/2011 Duration: 56min

    Another week brings more ranting and raving from podcast stalwarts Tom and Brad. This time, it's about the Gears of War series. Much love is given, but matched with much criticism. No jokes about "10 shit-loads" though. Listen for other missed opportunities and much more!

  • Out of the Level #1 - Asheron's Call

    15/07/2011 Duration: 01h07min

    Tom and Brad discuss Turbine's first MMO attempt - Asheron's Call. There's countless complaints but still a few merits to this long, forgotten game. Stay awhile and listen.
