You should do an episode between Star Wars VS the rest of the LucasArts library, looking at popularity and the fan followings, that would be interesting talk lol.

Many arguments would come out of that but all in good fun though

I absolutely loved this episode. I couldn't stop laughing most of the time. I missed the bloopers though.

Listening to you guys talk about the Star Wars and Ninja Gaiden trilogies on the NES and SNES brought back lots of memories. Games were so much more memorable and challenging back then. I miss the 8/16-bit eras.

Great podcast!

We didn't really have a known blooper to use. We DID have an interesting audio clip of Jae singing the Star Trek theme, but she wouldn't allow it to be distributed on the internet.

I laughed pretty hard on this one too, sometimes when you do these things, and then you wait about a week for the final cut to come out, and you forget what you said, so the jokes kind of come out of nowhere. When I snapped on Jae, I forgot when I did it, and I laughed so hard I started crying...

Another good episode guys and gals, though I'm not remotely interested in Star Trek so I sort of zoned out for that part, . But leXX I happen to know why you suck at Street Fighter now... it's because you're playing it with that horrible excuse of a D-pad that the 360 controller has. But yea, good stuff, but where is my blooper time Niner!??

Edit: nvm apparently Groovy above me has informed us all that there were not that many bloopers, how disappointing

Well, if you absolutely must hear the caterwauling I did for the soprano part of the theme song, it can be tacked onto the next cast, but it's not pretty.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

In the beginning of the podcast you guys kept cutting Bill off when he was trying to say something. Groovy snapping at Jae had me laughing so hard my sister came in wondering what was going on. This my fav. podcast considering I laughed through just about the whole thing. Great job guys.

Well since I was not in this one I will leave my comments.

leXX I am with you, I love Fringe so far, I'd be pretty sad to see it canceled. Best new show of this season.

I am commenting as I am listening and I lol'd at Groovy getting on Jae about Clone Wars And just like last cast leXX lost it It's so funny listening to you guys not having been there first, Groovy losing it on Ian for mentioning KotOR is great.

NOW THEN, Rhett I think we have some talking to do. >:| Mirror's Edge is great! I can partially agree about the loading screens, loading in the middle of a level is unacceptable, but the loading screens in between levels I didn't have a problem with. But the overall gameplay is awesome. I think Bill hit it spot on, the story was just meh (though I kind of liked it just because it was different to play a more personal story rather than an epic) but the parkour part was done perfectly especially for a first person perspective. Combat sucked ass, I will complain about that all day, but I just thought the main gameplay was extremely well done, and the environments were beautiful.

Also Niner, Mirror's Edge is not really open world, it's fairly linear, with only a couple different paths you can take at any given point. Which I think works better as you'd just get lost if it was completely open world. I played the game with the red markers turned on the first time which helped, after a while and on to my second playthrough I recognized the different things you can interact with enough to not need the red color.

Overall good show guys.

The thing is, all that laughing you are doing during the cast, is the fact that Ian left most of the "bloopers" IN the cast, where he normally chops that stuff out. Like every time leXX and Jae loose there ****, and laugh for like a half hour...

That is why there is no "blooper time" at the end of the cast. However, we will keep this in mind for the next cast. Also, we didn't use our normal jingle, because we didn't want to advertise that Darth Moeller was in it, when he was not there, and didn't want to pester Nedak to change the cast theme again, just to remove one name.

Remember, there WILL be a special bloopers only podcast coming in the near future, so stay tuned all!

Yeah, I think that has alot to do with it too. Without the Mad Catz controller, it pretty much sucks.

Totally agree. I'm really loving Fringe. Fingers crossed they don't cancel it. Not sure how popular it is over there, but here in the UK, it has a prime time slot right after Lost.

Okay! giant comment time. :3

- I do not appreciate the first thing being put in my head is Groovy in the borat swimsuit. Especially since the Groovy in my head is always painted as Darth Maul....

- Groovyyy, just get it on Steam. ><

- It is virtually impossible to beat Expert with the AI. it's good enough on the lower difficulty, but if you're playing Expert or Versus, you need experienced, human players (with microphones).
...On second though, even then it's virtually impossible. We grinded expert for a while, only after several weeks did we manage to get a single person on the boat (Pie™). It is though as nails and then some.

(Insert Star Trek here)

- Yeah, don't hate on the animed SW series, those were my childhood! XD

- Heh, remember before Episode III, when Amy Allen was like "well, my character [Aayla Secura] doesn't die, so the upcoming TV show might be about her...."
Then it came out, and we all saw her being blasted to pieces by Troopers.

- They can just use Harrison Ford as Han Solo again! He doesn't look like a pile of slightly confused leather at all!

- Robocop is next in line for a reboot. Rumor has it Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a dream) is behind it. Thoughts?

- I think Star Trek will still be like the old ones, but they need to cut the trailers like an action movie, to capture the generation that has grown up without Star Trek.

- Babylon 5?!

- I still need to watch Battlestar Gallactica. It's everywhere these days. <.<

- A game that affected me emotionally was The Longest Journey. I got so invested in the characters, and I got terribly sad when I finished it, and couldn't interact with them anymore. =(

- I haven't play Mass Effect either. Need to do that soon. >.>

- Goes Vagina to you too!

Um yeah, sorry about that.

Yeah, it was just me and Niner, so we had 2 A.I. being pretty useless. Will definately have to try it with a full human group instead.

Yes, I loved that game, and it's sequel Dreamfall. They definately suck you in emotionally.

I have to say that I was SHOCKED that Jae hadn't played Mass Effect. She might actually have something to talk about besides KotOR... then again, there really wasn't a good Jolee character... Closest would be Wrex... or maybe Joker haha. He reminds me of when the Machinist Mates would be on Helmsman/Planesman on the boat.

Great job folks Just keeps getting better !! Loved the Trek intro. Would have loved to have heard niner do his best Azn Sulu voice I also enjoyed hearing Lexxy get the giggles, though was shocked to hear that she smokes

*cough cough*[/smokecloud]

Just one small historical item to clarify:
I think Bill was also about to interject when Grooves mentioned Plato as a possible cameo appearance in Young Indy.... this would have been a stretch given Plato was born sometime around 427/8 BCE. I myself didnt mind the historical cameos in Young Indy at all, Mustafa Kemal being my favorite of course (GL also sends a nod to him in ROTS with the planet 'Mustafar')

Re- Star Wars TV Series:
It has NOT been confirmed whether there will be any EU characters at this stage. If there were to be...the most obvious candidate is Garm Bel Iblis - one of the founders of the Rebellion. Lucas did mention that the Live action TV series will be targeted at a more 'mature' audience than CW.

The focus period of the show will be more on 'The Birth of The Rebellion' rather than a continuation of the jedi purge. One imagines Mon Mothma and perhaps Bail Organa(who appeared in the films) will be back/mentioned in some form as they were so integral to the Rebellion. There is a cut scene in ROTS(on the DVD) showing a secret meeting of disenfranchised senators, where Mon Mothma(Chandrila) was present.



As for the me...in the live TV show, Im looking forward to (hopefully) seeing some Bothans...many of which died to bring you this information...

Answering my own questions...

Fave characters:

Glottis and Manny (Grim Fandango) and Dom (Gears Of War 1 and 2.)


Most frustrating games:

Myst (I just never saw the point... so I gave up.)

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (Great idea... horrible execution. Could have been great... instead: Meh.)

Homeworld (I suck at RTS. Got through the first couple of levels... then no further.)


Most frustrating moment in a game:

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb - The level where you are running from the tank on the wall.

I was with the game (and loving it) right up to that point. Then it kinda becomes like a 3rd person "Pitfall" where you have to quickly accurately line up each jump for several minutes. Totally different from the rest of the game before it. I never got through it... even after 50, 60, or more tries. Pissed me off completely, and ruined the game for me. I never finished it, I was so sour after that.


Most moving/ memorable gaming moments:

Dom's reunion with his wife. (GOW 2)
Lola gets planted... and Glottis gets sick. (Grim Fandango)
The ending of Freespace 2.

i had to fast forward the mass effect bit. i have a burning hate for spoilers.

speaking of, i saw it at a store, which had a clearance table, on which, under 100 copies of lame games, was Mass Effect pcdvd for NZD $45. flip. i had just blown all mah pockit money on gifts for people. i hope to God that its still there...

but whats this about limited installs?!!



mfw I read the Revan novel

you guys are doing your part for the economy by influencing listeners to buy stuff.

(i just bought mass effect )

now lets see if this game is as good as its cracked up to be... and if it can rival KotOR...

it is not a cry of joy.

I picked up a used copy myself--I'm having a great time with it, though learning how to use the 360 controls after PC gaming Bioware games is really different. It's taking me awhile just to get the hang of that. I can't get used to hearing Jennifer Hale with an American accent, though.

I need to take some time and actually finish Mass Effect... and KOTOR 1 and 2, as well.

It's a first person shooter that isn't like every other first person shooter out there and also has a compelling and interesting story.

im playing as John, so i dont know what Jane sounds like, but have you played Jedi Academy? Jennifer Hale was the female PC and had an american accent. when i played kotor for the first time and encountered Bastila, i had no idea it was Hale until i heard the "ouch" lines in combat. stellar voice acting and actor.

story? im all into story. but i doubt my computer can handle it. heck, im running Mass Effect on a laptop version of an unsupported graphics card. (took some tweaking, but i have it on a nice playable setting).
speaking of, im playing the game, and im getting HORRIBLE textures on 'Ultra High + Anisotropic'! whats up with that?
id post this on a mass effect forum, but staying the hell away until i finish the game. (spoilers)
