The dynamic duo of Alex and Garry are back for another week of podcasting. Lots of more Gears of War talk from both the game and books this week. Garry has been playing more World of Tanks while Alex has been playing The Gunstringer, Scott Pilgrim vs the world: the video game, more Borderlands and much more. The new releases are a metric ton load this week and their is all kinds of video games news.
Garry had finished Mass Effect 2 while he was gone and finally talks about his impressions. Alex is all about Gears of War, not playing but reading the books that take place between 2 and 3 so he goes on for a long time about Gears of War lore. The new releases are of course highlighted by Gears of Wars 3 and we of course go over the gaming news.
This week....GARRY is back!!! Yes, after two months of he is finally back and has even managed to get a good amount of gaming in. Alex has been mostly wrapping up on achievements but also played a little bit of Dead Island. The floodgates have opened on the new releases and their is always a little bit of gaming new to talk about.
After a few weeks off we are back! Well Alex is at least as Garry is having internet issues so for the time being friend of the show, Derrick will be filling in. This week is all about catching up on what we've been playing for the last few weeks. This of course leads to all kinds of tangents along the way. Not much catching up to do with the new releases as almost nothing came out when we were gone. Although with Gamescom and PAX Prime going on there was lots of news to discuss. Still no return of Spoiler Discussions, hopefully we will return to that feature within the month but in the meantime sit on down and take a listen to the longest show we've done to date.
I’m sure you’re thinking to yourself, “Yeah, 42 is the answer, any good nerd knows that.” You crack open your PBR and wonder, “Is there anything else, though? Some number that people haven’t thought could be cool.” You jump to your feet, causing your first edition vinyl record to skip. “I just figured it out!” you exclaim. “I need a number that represents how lame the PSN’s version of Summer of Arcade is, and how disconnected Blizzard is. I need a number that talks about the EA vs Steam debacle. I need a number that talks about what came out this week, one that represents Alex and Daniel digging in to what they’ve played.” You settle back in to your recliner that you picked up from Goodwill, and gently puff your pipe. A satisfied grin comes to your face, since you figured it out before it was cool. “Yes,” you think, “I need the number 43.”
Holy carp, is it already time for episode 42 of That Game Podcast?! While it may seem fishy at first, indeed it is. Alex and Daniel spew ones and zeroes out of you speakers and in to your earhole about all sorts of things this week. After a recap of what we’ve been playing, which seems to be a lot of catching up on our backlogs, we move in to the new releases. After a firm “waiting for a sale” decision on From Dust, we talk about breeding emus and then go straight to all the news that’s fit to speak. (Or, really, be spoken of.) THQ, 3DS, and more. A whole lot of sales numbers this week, but that’s what happens in the middle of the summer. Like a refreshing spring breeze to cool your scorched summer skin, episode 42 delivers the things plants crave!
This week That Game Podcast is full of action, adventure, and raw excitement as we bring a special guest to the table. Alex, Daniel, and Garry were lucky enough to speak with Greg Kasavin of Supergiant Games about the studio’s first game, Bastion. Stay tuned after the interview where we ramble on about what games we’ve been playing (hint: starts with a ‘B’ and rhymes with with an animated crab), including Garry’s mobile gaming bonanza. Moving on in to the releases, we realize Summer of Arcade is excellent because otherwise it is a slow release week. As per usual, we wrap things up with a couple news stories like how Zynga is evil and Microsoft needs to fix the Xbox Live Indie Games. Download and enjoy, good people of Earth!
In week's show Daniel formally of the In-Game Chat podcast fills in for Garry who will be out for a few weeks. Starting off with what we have been playing, Daniel talks about three PC indie games he had been playing. This includes Dungeons of Dredmor, Frozen Synapse and Terraria which the comparisons to Minecraft are discussed. Alex played lots of Ms. Splosion Man, Dark Void and more Angry Birds which sparked are kinds of discussion into game design. We then go over the new releases and video gaming news. Stories included Netflix's new pricing plans, EA buying Popcap Games, Sony saying something dumb...again and Gamestop taking over Impulse. Finally we talk about the latest BioShock Infinite footage which looks amazing.
