Darth Groovy, leXX, Rogue Nine, and I are back for episode 21, coming in at 1:42. We had a bit of a problem with the program SkypeCallRecorder cutting off the first 15 minutes or so of the podcast, so Darth Groovy and I re-recorded the intro. We hope you can forgive us for our technical difficulties.

Here's what we talked about this podcast:
A little bit about the games we played, including Niner's take on Red Dead Redemption.

BIG LA news: The president of LA, Darrell Rogriguez (http://kotaku.com/5533053/lucasarts-president-resigns-%5Bupdate%5D), has resigned, along with several people on his executive team, according to Kotaku (link courtesy JediAthos)

LucasArts has put plans for Star Wars: Battlefront Online on ice (http://kotaku.com/5513063/star-wars-battlefront-online-binned-as-developers-laid-off).

There's a rumor (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=203821) that JKIII will be announced at E3 this year (link courtesy of acdcfanbill). We're not sure how accurate the news is, however.

Latest news on TOR from MMORPG. (http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/367/feature/4217/What-We-Know.html)

EA targets used game buyers. (http://www.gamepolitics.com/2010/05/11/ea039s-online-pass-targets-used-game-buyers) Anything to make a buck. Thanks, EA, for reminding us how greedy you are.

Isn't a game developer saying "pre-owned games are a bigger threat to developers than piracy" just a little over-the-top? (http://www.gamepolitics.com/2010/05/11/developer-labels-used-games-worse-piracy)

Courtesy of lexx: Readers of PC Gamer, one of the last bastions of the specialist press for the platform, have been voting on what they think are the best 100 PC games of all time. The results are in, and we talk about the top 10 on this list. (http://kotaku.com/5538813/the-greatest-pc-games-of-all-time-according-to-2010)

Our last 'poll'. Yoda won.

Our favorite game soundtracks, webcomics, and podcasts.

And as always, bloopers. :devsmoke:

I immensely enjoyed this, guys. Thanks for taking time out of your days to brighten ours.

You're still all freaks of nature.

Oh, and specifically for Groovy's benefit:
Escaping Halo (
Vode An (http://dockingbay101.com/music/vg/rc/01%20-%20Vode%20An%20(Brothers%20All).mp3)

Also possibly of interest, both Half-Life and Half-Life 2 are $9.99 on Steam.

Yes, Jeff is going to E3 and should be on a future cast to talk about it. :)

Question: When going over your favorites for game soundtracks...did you guys actually not mention Grim Fandango's soundtrack...or did I just miss someone mentioning it?!
