Hey Poor Podcast Episode 59: Slap Your Friends


Get some buddies together and show them how they kicked ass back in your day, in the roaring ’20s!

Some slap-tastic talking points; Slapfriends. Planet Licker. Miitomo. The five games each of us would play on a desert island. Minecraft. Sims torture. Flappy Bird. The possibility of an upcoming retro game market crash. The fiasco with that Anamanaguchi game. The hardest bosses we’ve ever fought. Super Meat Boy. Metal Gear Solid V. Xenoblade Chronicles. Half-Life 2: Episode 2. Bloodborne. The vacuous glory of the Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon arcade cabinet. Lego Dimensions. Dead or Alive Extreme 3. Blues and Bullets: Episode 2. Dragon Age 2. Stardew Valley. Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright. Broforce. Pokken Tournament.

Jay Petrequin, Francis DiPersio, Mike Vito and Alex Lupella are joined by John Ceceri (previously seen as Adam Brooker), to talk all about his real-slap interactive game, Slapfriends. Tim Schafer played it at GDC! Also, John went to GDC! Find out all about it. John and Jay are from the same area. Will they have a really weird moment of commiseration over the housing prices in the state of New York? You know they will! Jay becomes the vegetable king. Mike wants to get deep inside Nimble Nana. John expels a dark passenger from within. Alex sounds like he’s stuck in a space helmet. Frank drinks many beers. Everyone bonds over the things that scared them as children, and their mutual Italian-ness that scares the rest of you.

Check out Slapfriends today, and follow John on Twitter!

Jay Petrequin started writing at HeyPoorPlayer in the summer of 2012, but first got his start writing for It's Super Effective, a Pokemon podcast that happened to be a reflection of two of his biggest interests: pocket monsters, and making people listen to him say things.
