Podcast - DF #57: My Patapon is Sacred Too

This week's episode of Distributed Failure is a bit disjointed with the "regular" show featuring only me and Rob. After that, we have a short segment of Gus and myself talking about Patapon 2 and wonders/horrors of Netflix. This is all due to Gus' attempt at becoming a "rockstar" up in good ol' Canada, but we all know that he uses the bathroom way too frequently to ever make it in the music business.

This week's "What We've Been Playing" features a wide range of games including Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, Rune Factory: Frontier, Patapon 2, Plants vs. Zombies, Legendary, Hellboy: The Science of Evil, and much more! We follow that up with some gaming news including the closure of Factor 5 studios and the possible announcement of a "slim" PS3. After that, we dive into the "Sausage Dump" and chat up some movies, as well as the Lost finale. I hope you enjoy the show and don't forget to rate us on iTunes! :)

In case any PS3 owners don't already know, Rag Doll Kung Fu is currently free on PSN and will be free for 1 week...From what I've played so far it seems to be an alright game, but my God...HORRIBLE motion controls! Why they thought these controls were a good idea is mind-boggling to me.

Greatest name of a podcast episode ever.

Great show again, and since I forgot to mention this before, Dresden Files are amazing books!


I'll check out a Song of Fire and Ice, thanks for the heads up!
Posted by hendersonman

I have never read the Song of Fire and Ice books... never even heard of them till last week. And I have been role playing for years. Now if they would just make a good Dragonlance game... that would be awesome. I know its never going to happen... but a man can dream on his Birthday

@TheGamerGeek: Glad you like it, but just wait until we hit episode 69...that will contain our greatest episode title ever! I guarantee it.

@SynisterSpacer: Glad you enjoyed the show! :) I don't know why, but I'm starting to feel nostalgic for the good ol' days when Goosebumps were the "shiznit" as far as books went...crazy times.

Pretty good. Just a few things.


  • Podcast needs a bit more energy!
  • Podcast needs a certain individual named Vinchenzo. Slick.

@Vinchenzo: Yea...I (we all were) was definitely mellow this week for the show...I recorded my bit with Gus on Wednesday night and then recorded my bit with Rob on Thursday morning...tired on both accounts personally. And if you wanted to be a guest on the show for reals...we could work something out :P

@Kush: I'd probably destroy the show with my awesomeness.

@Vinchenzo: I doubt that...I could kill with just one reflection of light off of my chinny chin, chin!

You can kill a dude with your chin over Skype? That's pretty badass.
Posted by Kush

I can kill anyone and anything with my chin under any circumstance...my chin in all-powerful! ...on a gaming note: I picked up Resistance: FOM and I've actually been enjoying it for what it is so far, but I do have one thing to say... How could anyone try and compare this game with the original Gears graphically? I don't think there is any question that Gears 1 was better looking that R: FOM. I'm not saying that R:FOM is ugly by any means, but I honestly don't see how anyone would have to even think about it for more than a second...that is all.

Posted by SenatorSpacer

Resistance 1? Yeah I perfer Resistance 1 to Resistance 2, but that's because the story makes some sense and it had the weapon wheel.

Posted by Kush

I never played Res 2 and this is the first time I played Res 1 (besides the demo way back...which I hated) ...it's an alright shooter, but nothing spectacular. I still love the glass effects though! I remember going crazy over the glass in demo before the game came out. :P

Yeah the show was very low energy this week. Thats what i get for thinking I could do a show after working third shift. Hopefully we will be back on the game this week.

Don't worry Vins...I'll bring the energy next week like MAD!!! ...Having just finished school this week (finals), I was a bit worn out. Now that I have that time for myself...I can rock the podcast like rocking an order of cannoli and sausage!

@Vinchenzo:
You know what would be funny...if I reported you as a points cheater and you had your GS reset to ZERO!!! HA! :P

You can try if you'd like, honestly. Almost every achievement I have has a time-stamp, which means I got it legit.

Other than that, I can't wait to rape you on the podcast.

P.S. If you want to go to Six Flags in Gurnee May the 21st.... well I got a season pass. Hmm...
Edited by Kush
@Vinchenzo: Nah, I wouldn't do something like that...unless I could get away with doing it to Rob, but I just like to bring him as much misery as humanly possible!

Fun Fact about Kush: I cannot be raped...it's not a question of how; it is just impossible to rape moi. Fact. And I have not been to Six Flags in a long time...and the last time I was there; I managed to get on one ride the entire time I was there (all friggin' day), as well as being in line for an hour on the Giant Drop only to see it break down just before me and my buddies were about to ride it. Bastards! I haven't been there since the addition of the waterpark (whenever that was...).

I almost want to join in on your Burnout Paradise playing because I love that game and can never find anyone to play MP, but I really don't want to be playing in some stressful "We must do this so I can get all the points" type of way...
