We start things off with the Lytro and the Kogeto Dot cameras. Both cameras introduce some cool tech, but also some philosophical conundrums.

New images of Big Boss start the old Metal Gear Solid rumor mill. What time period will this be set and what’s with the pooch? Then in our main topic we take a hands on in depth look at the newly released PS Vita. Is it truly worth the cash or just more fodder for Nintendo’s 3DS?

We start with the rumors flying around about the successor to the Xbox 360. Will it use Blu Rays, will it have some sort of measures in place restricting gamers from playing used games on the console, and will it actually use a stupid name like Xbox 720? Then in our main topic we address ludology vs. narratology. Does story or interactivity take precedence or does it truly depend on the game? Watch as Brian and Landon duke it out in this extra long episode!
It’s Black Friday the most deadly time of the year. Brian and Landon share our deals, steals, and tears from the busiest shopping day. And since it’s Thanksgiving weekend, what more appropriate subject than the video games we are thankful for. We look at those games that changed the industry, personal favorites, and influenced future generations of interactive entertainment.
Plus watch as our phone glitches and fails us miserably live on cast.
We have a live Q&A session with Richard Ross of Operation Rainfall to get their side of the story and how this organization of dedicated Nintendo fans is seeking the international localization of three Wii games. Then in our main topic we talk about World of Warcraft vs. Star Wars: The Old Republic. With Star Wars The Old Republic beginning beta testing, there’s a lot of buzz surrounding the release of this game. Will WoW retain its’ throne or will Star Wars usurp the the reigning MMORPG king?
Also we talk about bums, how to keep you bum fresh, and how to properly care for your bum……BUM!
What happens when you mix funk with a dash of techno, two parts video game, a pinch of chiptune, half a cup of 80′s, and a dollop of PXtone? You get the poppy crisp infectious tones of George & Johnathan. Don’t let their simple moniker fool you, these chaps know how to make some fine music. Their newest album, “Beautiful Lifestyle”, hit the digital airwaves this month and let me tell you, it’s delicious loving for my ear holes.
The entire album feels like a soundtrack from a forgotten video game. The track “Whale” is an example of how the duo perfectly matches the name of a song to the overall vibe and feel of the sounds contained therein. It’s very chill and feels like the ending credits to a classic arcade game. Take a listen.
I could gush on about these two, but their music speaks for itself. “Beautiful Lifestyle” is available for as little as $5 (a steal for 12 epic tracks). Make sure to check out their other two albums “The Best Music” and “The Best Christmas” for more sugary sweet sonatas. You can preview all of their albums and more at:
BTW: A big thanks to Coldguy for exposing me to these wonderful chaps!
