Break Down

The SCIENCE! is a branch of Game Theory. The episodes mainly consist of Austin Hourigan raging over crazy stupid science in video games.


As of March 3, 2020, "The SCIENCE!" has ninety-one videos, fifty-six on The Game Theorists and the other thirty-five on ShoddyCast.

While the oldest video in the The SCIENCE! official playlist is called, "The SCIENCE! Behind Laser Rifles in Fallout 4", which was published on Jan. 29th, 2016, the first video in the style of SCIENCE is called "Dear Bethesda, Where Do We Poop in Skyrim?". Both of these were uploaded on the ShoddyCast channel.

The first episode uploaded on The Game Theorists was episode 37 Pokemon Evolution Would KILL YOU!. The last episode on the ShoddyCast channel is called "The SCIENCE! Behind Skyrim's GIANT Catapult". Both were uploaded on September 21, 2016.


  • In almost every title of an episode of The SCIENCE!, there is at least one word fully capitalised.
    • "SURVIVE", "EXPLAINED", "OVERPOWERED", "BROKEN", "SECRET", "BIGGEST", and "STRONG" being twice the capitalised word.
    • "DEADLY", "SOLVED", "DOOMED", "NOT", and "LIE" being thrice the capitalised word
    • There are only 4 exceptions to this rule on the Game Theory channel: episode 73 about Subnautica, episode 82 about Kindergarten, episode 90 about The Legend of Zelda, and episode 91 about Resident Evil.
    • Many of Austin's earlier videos on ShoddyCast do not follow this rule.
