Welcome to the new format! One hour is the new two hours! Intermissions are a thing of the past! This newer, shorter, and more streamlined Jump Kick Punch is ready to wow you with discussions about Prince of Persia, excitement over Red Dead Revolver, hands-on impressions of Alan Wake, and a brief visit to some major mascot franchises. Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of belching and in-fighting– and stay tuned this coming Monday for our new, weekly emails-only episode!
0:01:18 – We’ve all seen Prince of Persia, so let’s get our Jake Gyllenhaal man-crushes out of the way first thing.
0:17:54 – Josh lays claim to “fucking psychic powers” as he responds to critical reception of Alpha Protocol
0:26:19 – Tom hearts Alan Wake, he hearts it the MOST (not really… maybe). He has played it though, so he tries to explain it to us.
0:38:05 – Josh, the unamerican communist, hates cowboys. Tom, Brandon, and Zack are proud patriots who love cowboys. Let’s see how this Red Dead Redemption conversation goes… (including mention of some amazing glitches like this and this!)
0:51:09 – Look, Brandon is just going to hurry and get these Sonic the Hedgehog news items out of the way real fast, like ripping off a band-aid. Just placate him, he tries so hard.
1:01:55 – Mario Galaxy 2 is predictably great, provided you like Mario games.
