Broken Pixels is a whenever-we-feel-like-making-it show staring 1UP Network editors Crispin Boyer and Shane Bettenhausen plus TV's Seanbaby (along with other people, sometimes). They play games that are usually really bad, like incredibly so bad that they kind of become good again, but not totally. Jokes are made, swears are sworn, easily offended people are profoundly offended, and then they leave angry comments, below!

I only rarely watch these during the 'Not the 1UP show' shows that occassionally run on the 1UP show podcast. I have to say that every time I've watch it, I've had to stop it to catch my breath from the laughter. It gets so out-of-hand funny sometimes. I like how they taunt and ridicule games of old, but sometimes they do have genuinely interesting points-of-view.
Of all the podcasts I subscribe to, this is the one I look forward to the most. The 1UP team's brutal and unforgiving dissection of terrible videogames is always done with an infectious humour and a casual nature, and if you love videogames (but hate bad ones), you're bound to get a lot out of this.
Just discovered this podcast and it is incredibly funny. But how do we get episodes before 17?
