Edit: I fixed whatever was wrong with this weeks episode. Sorry about that guys.


  1. Gonna make this a shorter one ;) : First and foremost great episode, enjoyed the music, topics and the length. I think Minecraft would of been great if it was based on easy mod and content. I wish that Freedom Force had an easier way for making custom meshes (to make new costumes and such). Also Wizardry was always a very hardcore series in general. I always liked character exportining, I did so for "Realms of Arkania" Northland Trilogy, but there you could make new characters from scratch and level them up too, and there was a starter set of characters. It was more widespread, like all the goldbox D&D games you could import characters to other goldbox games. And a final question to you, what is a game you tried to get into and wanted to master, but for some reason could not? For me it would be any of the Wizardry and Might and Magic games, but I am not giving up. Gotta finish other games like Lionheart first. Thanks again for recording these broski!

    The 1990's were so rad.

    I like pancakes too, especially chocolate chip pancakes. What toppings do you like? I'm a butter and syrup guy.

  6. #1 My brother Andy had an X-Box and thankfully he let me and my other brother Scott play on it due to not smashing controllers or slobbering on the console. It was a thing we did for all the consoles we got, regardless of who technically owned it.

    Most of the titles my bros had were multiplatform sport titles like da Maddens. It was kind of the thing I noticed with the X Box; very few exclusive titles that were console worthy, but a lot of ports. Also had a lot of co-op games, so you and the boy will greatly enjoy keeping your X Box until it finally overheats the DVD lens with it's awful design. I recommend getting some type of fan to dissipate the heat from that beast. That is how Andy's X Box died.

    My list of schweet games on X Box:
    1. MechAssault 1+2 ($5 each shipped and has local co-op arena for the boy)
    1 had better story missions, 2 had better Arena and nice variety of mechs
    2. Phantom Crash (close to $10 shipped, but Armored Core on Speed, got the sequel on PS2) I'm legally married in 40 states to this game. Only reason I would own an X Box if it wasn't for the sequel being on PS2. Shadow and lighting effects isn't as great on the PS2 though.
    3. Hunter The Reckoning + Redeemer (scurry Gauntlet style game, about $7 shipped, local co-op)
    4. Mercenaries (Grand Theft Auto without the RC Car missions. Just shoot and keep shooting.
    5. Rainbow Six: Lock Down ($4 shipped and has split screen co-op) I liked the guns a lot in this one. Shotguns were my favorite.
    6. Halo 2 ($5 and I think it is the best of the series for multiplayer.) I felt the guns were better balanced in Halo 2. The story missions weren't that great though.

    #2 I didn't have a large collection because I never wanted to own a lot of games for a system I didn't have 100% ownership over. Besides those 5, I had Counter Strike and that was based off Condition Zero, not exactly 1.6. Uber Nerd Alert: For the mini map, the original Counter Strike never named any of the locations on a map. They were labeled that in Condition Zero after the community named those maps like Double Doors in Dust 1 map. You can read more of the history via the wiki. I also enjoyed being able to play songs in the game. It took a long time for me to have an MP3 player and that was great to have. Rollover DJ by Jet and Not Responsible from Tom Jones were frequently heard during my escapades in Counter Strike on XBox.

    #3 One Moar Thing: Did you listen to the tribute podcast yet? Took like 30 minutes to get the intro done with the voice samples, however it was worth it for using your music. Top kek.
