Show #54 – Blue and Cyan

Posted in Podcast on September 30, 2008 by A.J.

The biggest news story of 2008 draws to a close with the release of Mega Man 9. Or does it? While Ajguy holds out for the 360 version, Mike has already conquered the Wii version. And did someone say DLC? Plus we talk Warhammer Online, The Witcher, and Samba de Amigo. A truly epic Great American Ajguy Gaming Quiz and a bevy of MMO news rounds out this week’s episode.

The lights are back on and so are the games. We have a massive list of games we played this week. So massive that I had to write it down (and I still forgot one!). Join our new addiction to Warhammer Online, thrill to talks of galactic conquest in Spore, and join us for a special post show, spoilerific discussion of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and The Return of More Jedi We Never Knew About Before.

No Show This Week Due to Power Outages

Posted in Blog Post on September 15, 2008 by A.J.

While I’m riding high and dry in Pittsburgh, Mike is currently looking at the next few days with no power. As such there will be no show this week (Though I may cobble something together. No promises!). Winds that came as a result of Hurricane Ike tore through northeast Ohio yesterday leaving ours and thousands of other homes without power due to trees falling on power lines and things of the such.

While that may be the extent of Ike’s damage to us, countless others have not been so fortunate in the area directly hit by the hurricane. I’m going to take this moment to focus our small but awesome community by asking you guys to help out those in need after a pretty rough hurricane season. Please donate to the Red Cross or your favorite charity to help those in need. We should be back in full force next week with an epic show for you all.

Seperated by great distances once again, the Minotti brothers resort to the old magics to continue bringing you the show! And what a show! We’ve got price drops, PSP firmware, DRM, and more! Ajguy gets his feet wet with Spore, while Mike’s loathing of wRPGs continues with Neverwinter Nights 2. Also, Ajguy is taking suggestions on how he should remotely berate Mike for failing Answer or DIE!
