On this week's show, Dan plays around in Toy Story 3, Eric gives us his take on Marvel vs. Capcom 3, we discuss the upcoming Video Game exhibit at the Smithsonian, Telltale's announcement of Fables and Walking Dead games, and that Dead Island trailer everyone lost their collective bowels over.

(2/10/11) Crow -- It's What's For Dinner
February 10, 2011 10:09 AM PST

On this week's show, Dan starts the first Broken Embargo bet. After complaints about game development from Eric and Caleb, Dan makes the claim he can make a full, working game in less than a month. To the winner -- cupcakes. To the loser -- editing duties.

Plus, we talk about games. Pro Zombie Soccer and DCUO lead Whatcha Been Playing, and news about Bulletstorm, the NGP, and Minecraft take control of the second half. Listen now and enjoy the fun!

Break Music:
Pirate Shout (Monkey Island) -- audiofidelity

Outro Music:
Screw Wily, I'm Taking a Vacation (Mega Man) -- Mattias Haggstrom Gerdt

(2/1/11) Uncle Caleb's Cabin
February 01, 2011 03:22 PM PST

It's an interesting show this week, as regular guest Alex Jones joins the boys to talk about video games. Dead Space on iOS kicks off What We've Been Playing, but Dan's a bit too scared to play it. Eric brings Magicka to the discussion, and Dan talks about a new Minecraft mod that adds a specter to the world.

In News, we talk about Sony's NGP. We guess price, launch details, and compare the battle to the DS vs. PSP days of old. Also, the Pope wants you to be yourself online, and Reggie's quotes on the lack of Zelda or Kid Icarus at the 3DS launch.

Break music:
Threshold of a Dream -- Level 99, prophetik

Outro music:
The Forest That Never Sleeps -- halc

See you next week!

(1/25/11) Under the wire
January 25, 2011 09:13 PM PST

Getting the episode up late tonight! Not much new in what we've been playing. But we've got lots of news this week! From the 3DS conference to SE's First Production Party awesomeness, and rounded out with Valve's newfound (and completely uncharacteristic) love affair with the PS3, there's something for everyone. This week's break music is a short sampling of Silent Hill: Downpour's soundtrack, being led by Daniel Licht in Akira Yamaoka's absence.


EDIT: Totally forgot to post this. Duke Nukem Forever has a RELEASE DATE (May 5th), and this is what we all expect to see when we start the game up:

(1/18/11) - Boardgames and Superheros
January 18, 2011 05:15 PM PST

The gang's all here this week. We start by catching up since it's been SO long since we've all been together. Apparently, Dan played too many boardgames the night before the show last week. He talks about them, while Caleb fills us in on his new addiction to DCUO.

Last week's break music was a remix of the Song of Awakening from Link's Awakening. No cookies were given. This week, it's Passion Pit's "Sleepyhead" in honor of today's release of LBP2!
