Podcast 48 — E3 2012: Day One

From Nintendo's sucker-punch NintendoDirect video to Microsoft, EA, and Ubisoft's press conferences, E3 2012 has started in a big way. As per usual, the gang jaws about the deluge of news and trailers from the first day of E3 with opinions that range from jaded dissatisfaction to open contempt.

Posted June 2nd 2012 by J. Edison Thomas.

Podcast 47 — Gay Superheroes vs. One Million Moms

This week, we talked about exciting, life-affirming news of "real life zombies" in Miami and elsewhere, something about 38 studios, Indie Game: The Movie, Double Fine's new game, Amazon Instant on Xbox 360, and we have a Very Serious Discussion about DC and Marvel comics putting more focus on gay characters, and bitchmothers who have a problem with that.

We were drunk when we recorded this; forgive us if it goes astray.

PODCAST 45 — EA's Indie Cred

Podcast 45 — EA's Indie Cred

Man, corporations just can't stop pissing us off. You've got Sony's flagrant Trials clone and Zynga's boneheaded attempt to control the social-gaming market by buying or copying anything that's popular at the moment. Thankfully, heroes like Mojang's Markus Persson hold the line, calling out EA for publishing an "indie bundle." The guys try out Mojang's Minecraft: Xbox 360 Version and revel in the indie wonderment and good-cheer to fellow gamers. Until... something horrible happens.

Podcast 43: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

This week, the gang gushes over Trials Evolution, laments over Nintendo's financial woes, strokes their beards over Nintendo releasing major titles as digital downloads, and drags Sony over the coals for shamelessly ripping off Super Smash Bros.

This week, we talk up the Hulk's animated features on Netflix Instant Streaming, the Hulk vs. double-featuring with Thor and Wolverine stories and Planet Hulk.
