Vidjagame Apocalypse 152 – Caveman Games with Tim Turi


This week, former Game Informer editor Tim Turi joins us to talk about our favorite prehistoric adventures where sweaty men in loincloths fight dinosaurs. (Appropriately, none of them were made after 1997.) Then we shift slightly to talk about Far Cry Primal, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Vive pricing news and your favorite fighting-game characters.

Question of the Week

What’s a skill you’d like to learn to help you survive in Stone Age conditions?




Theme song by Matthew Joseph Payne. Break song is Walk the Dinosaur by Was (Not Was). Haunting and beautiful New Releases Theme by David B. Cooper.

  1. Every time I hear Tim Turi’s name I get Chim Chim Churrie stuck in my head, and no one I’ve heard, not even Disney-lovin’ Chris, ever mentions it. This was a good, loose episode, with lots of good sidetracking interjections. I loved Brett’s “chicken butt.”

    I grew up in eastern Iowa, and no one I knew sounded very southern, especially in Des Moines. Driving through southern Illinois they do sound more hickish, though.

  2. Qotw: the mate toss. It’s about trusting your partner. Hence the expression. That thumbs up means your partner is ok with the rough stuff, and we’re ok to rebuild civilization again.

  3. QOTW: FIRE! Heat up food! Provide warmth! Potentially set fire to my enemies camp and steal their woman and resources…

  4. QOTW I want to learn to die with dignity. I’m not the kind of guy to hold people up, lead gangs, or farm. That all sounds like way too much work. So I’m already on the chomping block so I might as well learn to die without crying, pissing myself, or evacuating my bowels. As my soul burns in hell I’d take some comfort in knowing my murders can’t laugh about my humiliating death, and isn’t that the true definition of surviving.

    Also Tim is always a great addition to the cast and I will count the days until Wilde’s return for if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t even know Sea Punk is a thing.

  5. QOTW: The knowledge of how to build a time machine with primitive tools would be an excellent skill for me to survive Stone Age conditions, cause let’s face it, I would not survive there for a month and probably die while being raped by a giant sloth. If that’s not possible then dentistry, cause then you would be a god among man and neanderthal in those days.

  6. QOTW
    Hey Tyler, that cord was most likely 550 paracord. It became popular from military and such for its uses. Its pretty handy in a rough spot. I would go for first aid of any form. Just imagine being in the woods and taking an arrow to the knee.

  7. QOTW: My preferred survival skill would be Stone Age engineering. I would develop tools of increasing complexity to quickly and efficiently solve the problems facing ancient man, freeing up time for the rest of the tribe to begin developing a cultural tradition.
