Podcast #9: Schedules are for pussies (also, Merry Christmas)

Hello there! Only six months late with our next podcast. Damn we’re good! In our defense I think we actually recorded about three podcasts that never made it on to the site. That is largely my fault, but of course I generally blame Bug for most things.

We’ve got a special Christmassy, end-of-yeary episode for you tonight! Adam and Bug start us off by talking about the new Zelda title ‘Is there anybody out there that still cares about this franchise’ ‘Skyward Sword’, moving on to Alice: Madness Returns (six months late, just like the podcast) bringing back platforming, Saints Row’s magical past time of running around naked and beating people with sex toys, we have an argument about Skylanders and then everything is rounded off nicely with a chat about best and worst titles of 2011. There’s also some wickedly obvious purchase advice in there somewhere.

Achievement Unlocked! Podcast #9

We might do another one next week, I’ve learned not to make promises.

Thanks for listening, Merry Christmas, and a happy fucking new year sheeple!

Podcast #6 Nintendo gives birth…. again

“A-Ha!” I hear you say��� the exclamation that can only mean one thing: your favourite thrice-yearly video gaming podcast has returned! That’s not even once a season, so you must feel quite the privileged little being to have our earth-shattering presence in your life again.

So what’s re-united our sorry souls this time? Not just E3. Oh No. There’s a historic ripple on its way tomorrow – a new console! Nintendo are about to unveil their next backwards-compatible-backward-thinking-nostalgia-milk-a-thon-a-what-the-hell-is-the-controller-gonna-be-like-this-time wonder machine.

So, listen in, and be quick about it, because this ‘cast will be relevant for a limited time only. We muse like wild and abandoning philosophers over all the rumours surrounding Nintendo’s new baby. We debate about the place of the Wii in the heart of video-gaming history and conclude, perhaps a little too frankly, that it may have stopped beating altogether.

We also discuss the games we’re totally gazonked (yes, I believe that is a brand new word) about at this years E3 conference including Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3, Skyward Sword and Sonic Generations…

Too many sequels? Don’t worry we noticed and unlike other soulless reviewers, we care enough to provide the most insightful critique on the video-gaming industry this side of tatoonie.
