Planet Explorers is supposedly coming out in a month or two. They weren't kidding when they said early access.

I like when Brad pulls out the Star Trek references. Wear it proud, son!

(Also, fantastic episode. So kinetic in those early parts.)

When Jeff says "Someone gets married and people have to go to a wedding and then everything falls apart" my heart sunk a bit. Don't think it was referential though.

Huh, I didn't notice the connection until you said something.

Star Trek: TNG's ability to do "horror" episodes often gets overlooked. The episode Brad talked about (where people keep disappearing and nobody remembers them) not only holds up really well but is still chilling.

Probably one of the best UPF episodes ever.

What a great show. Jeff is pretty good at Titanfall. Although whenever I see that game I get really excited about the movement and gun combat, but then as soon as the Titans come in I remember why it's not really the game for me. Seems pretty cool if you're into that, though.

CIGS need to do some giant bomb intro music or some shit, he needs to be a regular feature for at least a few weeks more. AT LEAST.

This is the most unprofessional of any Unprofessional Friday. I love it.

Also that golf game seems pretty rad.

Drew is across the country? I assume that's code for Drew's in the Ukraine.

I laughed a lot because of this.

No, this IS NOT rad Jeff. The golf game does not seem fun...and I usually like golf (mini or otherwise) games. It didn't seem offensively bad, but I almost fell asleep.

Titanfall does look fun but how can they justify a $60 price tag when it has no real campaign and five multiplayer modes?

Because I dont care about a shitty 6 hour single player campaign and would rather more multiplayer maps instead.

Also too many multiplayer modes fragments the player base too much.

Because people will buy it at that price.

You forgot to mention a small detail:

Because people are practically buying Call of Duty just for that.

Anyone know what the song was that cigs was playing at the end there? Sounds familiar and it's driving me crazy.

Same here. Also? I really hope Cigs continues to show up on Unprofessional Fridays.

...

Wait. Jeff said Giant Bomb is almost to the point of being able to hire new people...

Giant Bomb Official Shred Guitarist, incoming?

I'm just gonna throw out my Buckfast experience from living in Scotland all of my life, in case anyone's interested; Buckfast is the primary drink for bored teenagers to get completely fucked in as little time as possible. It's basically entered into the public consciousness as a staple of Scottish culture, at the same level as Irn Bru and the deep fried mars bar. If you're drinking in Scotland, you will have at one point drank Buckfast.

Buckfast (Bucky) and other fortified wines like MD 20/20 (Mad Dog) are huge staples in teenage drinking in Scotland, where people just want to get as drunk as possible as fast as they can. I'm sure that many teenagers in Scotland have fond (or not-so-fond) memories of kicking about outside a shop trying to get somebody to jump in for a bottle of Bucky and 20 Mayfair.

So you don't look at people and judge them in the "real world"?

Just because this is a website doesn't mean its weird.

There's just something amazing that happens whenever these guys have to improvise an entire show. 2 weeks running we've had the best UPFs in a long long time. As soon as they break the structure, everything is golden material. Never be fully staffed ever again.

@joelalfaro: They talk during every game.

Also, maybe Vinny could pick better games. "Vinny's Early Access Corner" is a really hit or miss segment on Unprofessional Fridays.

This week was a good UPF overall, thanks to all the Tricaster shenanigans.

Hearing that Danny was on Beat 102(YOUR MUSIC NOW) gives me a sudden urge to trawl through radio archives in hopes of finding his "real" radio voice.

Chances are it'll just be him saying it the same as in the video because Irish radio stations aren't all soundboards and crank calls, but the truth needs to be revealed!

Ooh, Zombies! I bought that game sometime last year just because of the music when Patrick linked it in some article, but it also does have some pretty fun gameplay.

Best episode in a while. I was in stitches the whole time. Love these streams so much.

Also, some rad new Japanese music that isn't J-Pop:
