Slam it down on the table...week after week
(1/1/11) - The Beast from the Near East
January 11, 2011 05:12 PM PST
In this week's episode, Dan goes all Jekyll and Hyde on us again and is replaced by yet ANOTHER British counterpart. This week, it is Benway of Controller Throw fame. We talk about some old school games with a new school makeover, Splatterhouse, and more!
Anyone who can name where the break music comes from gets a cookie. No link this week!

(1/5/11) 2nd Annual Golden Embargoes!
January 05, 2011 07:09 PM PST
Join us this week for our second annual Golden Embargo award show! And seeing as we haven't recorded a proper episode for a few weeks, this one's a doozy. We start out talking about all the great deals Steam had going on around the holidays and the games we've been playing through out (hint: It's a LOT)
Then it's on to the main event! Tune in to hear who came out on top within our exclusive group of professional voters!
Editor's Note: I apologize for the quality of Eric's side of the podcast. There was a slight mix up on the input device he used to record, so he can be a touch hard to hear in places.

12/28/10 - A Christmas Miracle
December 28, 2010 07:25 PM PST
So, last week Dan talked up the Golden Embargoes for this week. However, due to familial obligations, at least one third of the hosts wouldn't be present for recording. So instead, we leave you with this episode from our archives, two weeks ago. There was a snafu with editing that week, and it was never released. A little Christmas magic and Viola! Enjoy this little peek into the past!
Break music from Final Fantasy V: The Fabled Warriors, a remix project from OCRemix.com. This selection is called "Vessel of the Void ~ Theme of Exdeath" from "Wind", the first of five albums planned. There some really good tracks here, so give 'em a listen:
12/22/2010 - Come at me, Bro
December 22, 2010 05:26 PM PST
In this Caleb-less episode of Broken Embargo, we're joined again by the great and mysterious Alex D Jones. There's talk about video games, specifically Bejeweled 3, Dan's blasphemous hate of Majora's Mask, and Limbo's obvious Game of the Year status. Then it's on to the news of the week.
Make sure to tune in next week to our Golden Embargoes episode!
(12/14/10) Bringing Back the Love
December 14, 2010 06:36 PM PST
This week, Caleb's taken over editing duties. So guess what? We get an episode ON TIME!! Or something like that.
Join us this week as we talk about what we've been playing (well, what we CAN talk about) as well as all the latest and greatest news from our favorite bro-fest, the VGA's. Some surprises, some dates, some freaking awesome trailers. And we talk about (read: laugh at) the winners of the "Awards"
(11/30/10) Caleb is the Grinch
December 01, 2010 05:06 PM PST
This week, the show kicks off with Dan defending the spirit of Christmas from Scrooge Eric and Grinch Caleb. White lights, or rainbow? Tinsel or garland? These burning questions are answered in the first ten minutes.
Oh right, we're a gaming podcast. After the small digression, Eric and Dan discuss Poker Night at the Inventory, we talk a bit more about Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Eric describes the changes to Azeroth in the latest WoW patch.
In news, Mark Wahlberg is Nathan Drake, Axl Rose finally gets around to playing Guitar Hero III, and Gran Turismo 5 finally came out!
Have Yourself A Final Little Fantasy -- Doctor Octoroc (8-Bit Jesus)
Next week's show: ilomilo, Indie Games, Uncharted 3, and rumors! See you then!

Happy Thanksgiving! We'll be back on time next week.
November 16, 2010 04:56 PM PST
So, the group has split again for another week. But never fear, Alex Jones comes to save the day again! Alex talks about Fallout: New Vegas, Forze, and not having time to do much else. Caleb talks about the Move (which is pretty freaking awesome). And Eric's been dipping his toes into the Dwarf Fortress waters. All that plus your weekly recommended dose of rambling news talk. Enjoy!
The Nerdcore rappers from the show Caleb went to, for the uninitiated:

This week, Eric returns with tales of the Killzone 3 Beta, Caleb and Eric discus Rock Band 3, Dan catches up with Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and we go over California vs. the EMA.
Also, Caleb breaks shit.

Broken Embargo stars a gang of unprofessional game journalists who think they're hilarious and have lives just like you.
Well, okay, I'm underselling them a little bit. They're actually pretty smart, and have interesting things to say. You should listen to them, review them well, and email them at email@example.com
