Show #13 – Galaxy Get

Posted in Podcast on November 19, 2007 by A.J.

This week we dive into an embarrassment of riches ranging from Super Mario Galaxy to Assassin’s Creed, with a little Smackdown vs. Raw for good measure. Movie licensed games are discussed, as is Mike’s disgust with reporting on guitar based game downloadable content (which we do this week). Everyone got the memo, right? We do this on Mondays now.

New Schedule

Posted in Blog Post on November 18, 2007 by A.J.

Hello, everyone. As you may have noticed, a show hasn’t gone up yet for this week. After realizing the folly of trying to do a podcast recording on Friday nights (we do have lives, amazingly), Mike and I have decided to start posting shows on Mondays. So play some more Mario or Assassin’s Creed in the mean time and we’ll see you Monday.

This week we discuss Uncharted and Zak & Wiki. In light of many news to discuss and Mike’s completion of yet another Final Fantasy, we briefly discuss the best console design ever. Furthermore, please visit the Child’s Play Charity to help out some sick kids.

More Mario Haiku

Posted in Blog Post on November 5, 2007 by Mike Minotti

I’m a bit confused.
Super Mario World
was on an island?

Remember Geno,
From Mario RPG?
I miss him. He’s cool.

Jeez, captured again?
Peach should be locked in a cage.
A nice, cozy cage.

A bumble bee suit.
What could possibly be next?
Do bees live in space?

Leave Sunshine alone.
It’s not as bad as you say.
You all are stupid.

After Mario
The Wii will be still, silent.
Three months until Smash.

I just realized;
Where’s my collectible coin?
An injustice served.

I went to Gamestop.
There I met my great sadness.
The kiosk was dark.

The stars abundant.
Get a hundred and twenty
Play as Luigi.

A plant of fire.
White and red look oh so good.
Retro in style.

Mario Galaxy Haiku

Galaxies await.
Good thing I preordered it.
Five dollars well spent.

Posted in Podcast on November 4, 2007 by A.J.

This week we almost spent more time playing games in stores than in our house thanks to demos of Super Mario Galaxy and Rock Band. As the last gen seems to finally be fading out, we discuss the best ever game from the PS2, GCN, Xbox era. More Final Fantasy, some Castlevania, and Hellgate: London round out this week’s played games.
