Wow, I completely missed this!

I'm downloading it now, so you can have my verdict in about two hours.

Just finished listening.

I thought it was a good start for the new 'season'. I agree with PastramiX that a bit on Alpha Protocol would have been great, but at least there's the promise of it in a future episode.

And unsurprisingly, I liked the Republic Commando discussion - I do think that coming at the end of the Xbox's life hurt it a bit (although I didn't know that it was considered for release on the 360), but it's still seems to be a favourite amongst many gamers.

Added pictures to the spoiler in post 1.


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?"

I'm afraid those rumours are long dead, Taak. Imperial Commando was apparently in development, but nothing has been heard of it for some time, so it's less and less likely that we'll see one. It's a shame, as a lot of the people who've played it have agreed that a sequel would be a welcome move. But that's modern LucasArts all over.

The mobile phone version of Republic Commando was called Order 66, which came out in 2005, and saw Delta Squad travel the galaxy eliminating Jedi.

LOL, why do you hate fun?

Also guys with the Alpha Protocol stuff, the game has been pushed back. Once it gets closer again, or a demo pops up out there, we will be sure and talk about it.

I dont think I was the only one who found that content innappropriate. The fact that was the last podcast of the previous run speaks volumes. You guys were tired, staff werent present(esp Jeff who is definitely organised when it comes to news and content). With no content it became a recorded skype session masquerading as a podcast about gaming. We all have whacky conversations with our friends, colleagues etc - but we dont broadcast them!

Actually Grooves, listening back you didnt seem to be enjoying it much at the time either - why defend this obviously sick man we all know as Niner

In any event, congrats on coming back in style. I enjoyed this ep much better than lhe last one - there is alot stuff happening inthe lead up to the holiday season - so there shouldn't be any room for such disturbing segues

If you've talked about ME2 in great detail, a game that won't be released anywhere from 3 to 6 months from now, then I'm sure that you can devote a good block of equitable time to AP for at least one episode.

btw - Groovy... Dido.. really?? IIRC you were in an industrial band... and your love of Ministry is well known.... what manner of evil has led you from that to Dido

Kudos to Dr Lecter Niner for calling you to task on this

we can only hope impressing a hot chick has something to do with it. It's the only valid excuse a heterosexual male can offer.

Hey... I've played in metal bands, and I happen to like Dido. Hey... I even like Enya.

Jae seemed just a little too enthusiastic about bratwurst...

I am just getting around to listening to the 2nd half of this one...Groovy I'm jealous I want League of Legends. I almost got a beta key on twitter but some dude must have entered it at the exact same time as me.

@cast: Nice cast, guys! Both informative and funny. But could you tone down the constant "Jeeesus Christ!-ing"? Mild swearing is one thing, so is swearing in private/with friends, but this is broadcasted to a relatively large audience, and is of a religious flavour and thus different. Could you either:
1. Stop using "Jesus" as a swear word,
2. Start saying "Muhammad", "Dalai Lama", "Pope" etc.

Other than that, it was a great 'cast. keep it up! anticipating the next one.



mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.

I might be willing to trade my copy of League of Legends for something shiny. I have not opened it yet, and seriously doubt I will ever have the time. Besides that, I don't think it is my type of game anyways. What do you have to trade?

I think it would be a lot of fun to play in a band some time. I like every kind of music from medieval motets to classical to 'classic rock', light rock, and symphonic metal.

Bratwurst--what's not to love? It's a large, firm, meaty, flavorful sausage, hot and juicy, and fits snugly in the bun, and tastes great plain or with assorted condiments.


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?"
