Well! Guess who took an unexpected week off from podcasting! Sorry about that. But hey, we’re back. With the blistering summer heat of Atlanta finally giving way to the cooler nights of an impending Fall, our fearsome foursome opens the doors and windows to enjoy the fresh air (which is why there are crickets in the background sometimes, let’s just get that out of the way) and engage in some delightful conversation about the last two week’s worth of game news, from poker games to controller fixes to Capcom’s rival zombie franchises. And hey, speaking of the living dead, DUKE’S BACK. HOLY SHIT. (Also, listener emails and the triumphant return of VOICEMAILS!)
0:00:00 – An overlong intro and some inaproppriate humor. YOU KNOW, JUST LIKE ALWAYS.
0:05:25 – Wait, wait, waitwaitwait. Duke Nukem Forever is actually getting finished and released next year? DOGS and cats, LIVING together… MASS HYSTERIA.
0:20:56 – So it turns out that Telltale’s Poker Night at the Inventory is exactly what we all thought it would be, which is pretty lame. But hey, it’s cheap!
0:59:18 – Intermission!
1:00:01 – Mega Man Universe! Mega Man Online! So far, shit sucks! You know what else sucks? Trailers that are way, way cooler than the games they represent. (We’re looking at you, every upcoming MMO.)
1:20:31 – They finally fixed the d-pad on the Xbox controller! Awesome, that solves everythi-where did the colored buttons go.
1:24:47 – Bioshock Infinite’s antagonistic ‘Handyman’ is a disgruntled, ceramic, turn-of-the-century Pringles Guy cyborg! AWESOME.
1:28:13 – Arkham City screenshots reveal Batman, whores. Zack is okay with this.
1:35:41 – Listener emails! Badger writes in to question the relevance and necessity of the annual Tokyo Game Show.
1:45:58 – Tyler asks Josh who he would engage in that most sacred of martial confrontations: the dance-battle.
1:58:28 – Matt writes in to find out which IP’s we’d each like to see turned into MUSICAAALS.
2:10:05 – Listener Voicemails! First up, some kind of… hillbilly?
2:14:54 – Next, Kevin is deeply concerned for his friend, a closeted Aquaman fan. Let’s see if we can help him accept and love himself, everyone. Let’s join hands. Aww, yeah.
