About

Greetings, and welcome to the Patreon GamesRig! We are Ash Versus and Luke Owen, and this is the official Patreon page for Under Consoletation, an episode-by-episode guide through the greatest video games challenge TV show, GamesMaster.

WHAT IS PATREON

Patreon is way for you to support our little podcast. You pledge a certain amount every month, which helps us continue and grow the podcast, and in return get extra stuff!

SO… IT’S NO LONGER FREE?

Under Consoletation will always be a free podcast - we’re not putting the main timeline feed behind a paywall. If you don’t pledge to us here, the podcast will continue regardless. But, you know, it is a nice thing to do.

WHAT IS UNDER CONSOLETATION?

That’s a great question. Under Consoletation is an episode-by-episode podcast guide through the UK’s greatest video game challenge show, GamesMaster - which was hosted by Dominik Diamond (and briefly Dexter Fletcher) with challenges set by Patrick Moore as the GamesMaster. The show takes a deep dive into each episode, breaking down the challenges, reviews and tips - while also waffling on about the movies, magazines and songs out in the week of release. We've loved doing the podcast so far, and we can't wait to do more episodes!

SO WHAT DO I GET?

I’m glad you asked! As a £5 backer you’ll get the shows a week early and ad-free  (but the 90s adverts will remain because nostalgia), and at the £10 backer level, you’ll not only get the show early and ad-free, you'll also receive an Under Consoletation merch bundle in your first month of pledging!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

We’ve got goals that we’d like to hit along the way to make this a thriving podcast community, and that includes us launching a third series that reviews video game movies. There's even plans for a YouTube channel, and a live show!

LIGHTS, CAMERA, GAME OVER: THE PODCAST
When we reach 50 backers, we will launch another monthly Patreon exclusive bonus podcast, which will cover a video game movie! Want to hear us talk about Super Mario Bros.? Mortal Kombat? Street Fighter? Well, help us get here to make it a reality!

Where possible, we'll even add in clips from Luke's interview archive that he collected when writing the book Lights, Camera, GAME OVER!.
