Well, it's back. Although there isn't much gaming talk because to be perfectly honest I haven't been gaming that much since my PS3 kicked out. BUT, hey. It's something. It's mainly just me, IndieSeoul and Retrokaiser shooting the shit. Enjoy!
We recorded this on Ian’s birthday, and we talk about various things like what we’ve played lately, me going off on Call of Duty : Black Ops (including some major spoilers near the end if you even care about the story) … and, well … the entire franchise in general. Among other stuff, I’ve written notes here as best I can, but I may have missed some things here and there. Bear in mind, that I am, for the time being, using a cheapie PS3 headset that came from Gamestop, so I sound a little muffled. But oh well, it could be worse. Right? And (where the Black Ops “story” spoilers are) at the end is the half-hour or so that actually recorded of an earlier attempt at this episode with Critical Failure of Tiger Claw TV/Radio.

Well, the show I had pre-recorded with RetroKaiser … somehow the file got corrupted. So I blame it on the fact he’s Australian. So we recorded again last night and here’s the result of the madness. A little bit of talk about Portal 2, some records he got in the mail, and other random shit. About a half an hour or so in I decided to use one of the Skype things I’m paying for and call Justin. And totally messed up his kill/death ratio in Call of Duty Black Ops apparently. But that’s okay, because Battlefield’s better.
I would've had an episode out much sooner, but ran into some catastrophic problems ... in the sense that Ian and I did a full out 3 hour recording ... but the file wasn't there after I stopped recording. And it would've made a GREAT show too, mostly because Ian's always awesome with his podcasting. So, this particular episode is with Critical Failure of Tiger Claw TV/Radio, Triverse from Scenic 7 PR and at the very end ... (which, will get saved back for the next episode) Retrokaiser. I'll get into his show later, but he's a fairly regular guest host on Tiger Claw Radio.
Here's the promised second half with a whole random thing where we just started digging around AtariAge looking at and commenting on the new games coming out for the Atari 2600. Yes, there ARE in fact new games coming out from time to time for this kickass little system.
And to top it off, I get to ruin your childhood for the first 15 minutes or so of the show.
If you wanna get ahold of the show, as usual, you can leave a comment right here. Or you can send an email to email@example.com. If you want to leave a voicemail, you can call (618)984-5244, or if you want to get ahold of us through forums, just head on over to the forums over at GameGavel ... which also happens to be a good place to go for cheap gaming stuff.
Following up on the show entitled “Rocket Tits” I just had to name the show after one of my favorite actors, and we have a last minute special guest in the form of Chase Nunes from the web show Geek Gamer Weekly for the first half before he had to leave for work. In fact, the show was so fucking long that I had to split it into two parts, so you’ll get part 2 here in a few days to a week. But after over a MONTH of nothing, it’s finally here. It’s just so hard to find time when the co host is in a completely different country. I know I say during the show that I’m going to be adding things to show notes, but the only things I can think of to add is this story about a chick who reaches a gamerscore of 200,000. And of course GameGavel’s Youtube channel showing off the first episode of Big Game Hunter, a show where SoCal Mike wears a pair of glasses with a video camera built in to the swap meets he goes to where he finds all these wicked deals on games.
Part 2 will have the rest of what was recorded, including some of the stuff that got cut out … I’ve just gotta pretty it up with a little editing here and there. SOMEDAY we’ll get on an actual schedule, even if I have to start recording the damn thing by my lonesome.
It’s Ian and I again, this time talking about everything from Metroid to Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Quake, Doom, GOG.com (which is as of today a little out of date), DOS games, bullet hell shooters and other random tidbits. I’ve been sick for the last couple of weeks, and at the time of the recording, I was just STARTING to get over it … so I sound kinda strange a lethargic at times. But, it’s finally here. Maybe someday we’ll get a steady stream of people on here. I’ll be damned if I’m going to be the only one talking on here though. But, for your clicking pleasure, here are (in no particular order) some of the links we were referring to during the show.
As always, you can get ahold of us through various means either with email via firstname.lastname@example.org, you can leave a voicemail at (618)984-5244 that may or may not get played on the podcast eventually. Or, of course, you can hop onto the aforementioned forums. I personally also hang out over at the forums for The Retro League Podcast from time to time. So either way, have at it.
It's hard to find recording time, usually when I''m free nobody else is. Go figure on that. BUT here is a late episode, downed by the fact that the damn Skype recorder I've got decided to record at 24k. ANYWAY, the guest host here is Ian Guebert from the Game Gavel forums (where you can usually find both of us). This one is kind of a weird one because I wasn't exactly on my "A Game" being pretty damn tired and frustrated. But we get to talking about eBay, the various Nintendo systems and games for them (he has a much different gaming history than I do because I was always more of a Sega guy) along with a live play of some fucked up flash game called "Up Down Ready" by him ... I was playing Ridge Racer 64 while we were recording and got to talking about that a little bit. Along with all the usual randomness and fucked up-ness that I've apparently come to be known for. With any luck the next episode will come much sooner but no promises.
And a lot of other randomness I don't have links for.
Musical credits :

Hilary Duff - Reach Out
As usual, you can get ahold of us by emailing email@example.com, you can leave a voicemail at (618) 984-5244 ... of course long distance charges may apply. And if you wanna get ahold of ME at least (and the co-host for this episode of course) I hang out in the forums over at Game Gavel where I'm posting this and that off and on throughout the day. And a little bit in the forums for The Retro League Podcast.
We get into talking about Halo Reach, Halo 2600, music games (including Frets on Fire) ... S4 League, Call of Duty Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2, Activision, why I'm not going to buy Blur new ... a little bit on handhelds, a little bit on an Xbox Live Indie Game called "Space Swine" ... mainly because the email I got about it was funny.
Musical credits go to Filter, Family Guy and George Carlin.
And of course there's more. As always, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, you can leave a voicemail at (618)-984-5244 and while we don't have forums of our own, I just kind of decided to adopt the forums over at GameGavel.com, home of an inexpensive eBay alternative for video games and the Retro Gaming Roundup podcast. That's really the only forums I personally hit up.
I know this is a bit late, but hey. Work's a bitch.
This one is kind of a train wreck in quality ... for whatever reason while Justin sounded fine in Skype when I played it back for most of the show you can barely hear him. And since Josh is having financial troubles he "doesn't have his heart in it" to do the show, though he may be back eventually. We talk about a multitude of stuff ranging from Need for Speed (of which I was playing during some of the recording hehe), iPod games, gaming in general, and we found out that Justin actually kind of likes Left 4 Dead 2 and is going to get it eventually. It's a bit of a tough listen, but it gets a little better midway through. No musical credits this time because it's so fucking late.
