Video games are fun but when you're in your 30's it can be hard to find time to play them. Balancing our gaming habit with the competing interests of adult life is what our show is all about. Each episode we'll shine the spotlight on a Featured Game that we love (or love to hate), chat a bit about our middle-class lives and the games we've been trying desperately to find time to play, then wrap it up with a video game-themed quiz. Just don't take what we say too seriously...

||ExplicitGame/Life Balance Australia – Episode 53 – Wolfcock Manor||The theme for this episode was originally going to be about music. Then it gradually morphed into werewolves.

Rambling. Incoherent. A Glorious Train Wreck.
These two Aussie louts not only take the listener into forgotten corners of computer gaming’s rusty back catalog, they also take us into the intricacies of their plodding personal lives in the outer suburbs of their great nation’s capital city.
AC (possibly initials for Artorius Castus, who knows) sounds like some form of recovering alcoholic rescued by an incredibly patient wife he met whilst being in overseas tax exile.
Rob on the other hand sounds like he’s got better places to be and a life outside of obsolete entertainment technology and is merely doing the show to help keep AC on the wagon. Still one can’t deny he’s having fun watching out for his happy friend.
In any case this show will appeal to a specialty audience looking for a Dadaesque stream of nonsense filled with dated gaming trivia and hilarious tidbits about the Australian lifestyle. Once you’ve experienced Game/Life Balance Australia you’ll agree that prior to listening to this show you never knew podcasts like this were even possible.
