Welcome back leXX, and welcome to Scar Da Kookee! In this episode, we talk a lot about Mass Effect 2 and Star Trek Online. Rogue Nine, acdcfanbill, and leXX give an in depth review of their ME2 experiences. Scar Da Kookee and Jae Onasi describe how the newly-released Star Trek Online works (at least the earlier levels) from character creation to starship battles. Darth Groovy shares his MAG experience, and we all talk about the romance options in the RPGs we've played recently. We wrap it up by chatting about what's been happening in the Winter Olympics and how much alike acdcfanbill and Scar Da Kookee sound.

Release date: 3rd March 2010

I wish I could wave the magic Audacity wand and make it all better and be proficient at this sound editing. I'm just not good enough. I have a feeling it's a combo of our mics (I can't afford a professional mic, don't think anyone else here has one, either) and Skype that's creating the distortion/hiss that I can't figure out how to remove. We'll keep working on improving the sound quality, though. :)

I listened to it last night.

...This is most assuredly not a PG-13 podcast :D

I meant to bring up the new TOR trailer in this last cast--it'll definitely be in the next cast.

When you mentioned about Perfect Dark featuring Goldeneye maps and its the closet will ever get to playing Goldeneye again, not necessarily, unless you count the Goldeneye Source mod for Half-Life 2 which currently is in its final beta stages and you can download the latest version from the official website and its awesome, Goldeneye in HD with all the maps, the multiplayer, the missions, exactly as you remember them on the N64.

Ah yes, I forgot about that mod, but I was referring to them re-releasing the original game. That mod is awesome though.

Yea it was fun the last time I played it, which was a couple of beta's ago, but i almost liked the perfect dark mod more, though that's languished lately with a lack of patching to its crap bugs.
