Lorin, you're not alone. I also had to wash my boxers by the time i was done listening to the show, it's just too good!

Comment by Christer Lindqvist on February 12, 2013 at 8:05am

Thank you for another great show guys!

I been playing Some Colonial Marines since the launch this midnight

I must admit.....I do agree with all the reviews I´ve seen today. (all have been very poor)Corridor, shoot a bit. Another corridor shoot a bit. Poor animations(faces mostly)

And tons of more things.

Isen´t it Gearbox that have made this? Considering they made Borderland games, that I love to bits, I expected more

Am sure some will like/love it. But I personally am very disappointed.

Anyway. Sorry for being a negative nacy guys:)

Take care!

I'll forgive you for forgetting my name this time (in regards to the claptrap machinima) Lorin... This time =P

Anywho, great show guys. I never backed Wasteland 2, but really wishing that I had now. The gameplay looks fantastic and right up my ally as I love that old school Baulder's Gate style.
Been very tempted to play Mutant Mudds too... Now even more hearing Brent talk about it again XD

Comment by Resident Emo on February 12, 2013 at 9:45am

I have to admit I am quite saddened this episode wasn't called "12 inches of space between them", talking about Brent describing branching choice trees. Then again, Lorin didn't call him on that either :P

Don't usually do this, but I'm going to paste a user review of Aliens: Colonial Marines from Metacritic that made me almost piss myself;

"Fantastic game! Will play daily. Its refreshing to see other publishers follow THQ's successful business model of great quality games for fans. Cutting out a big part of the single player to sell as DLC will be well received and can't wait to buy that too."

LMFAO!

Awesome show guys, thanks for choosing the video i sent for discussion. I sent this video because i am going to school right now to become a game designer and it just made me view games so differently and i thought it was just awesome.

I'm getting http://www.podbean.com/404.htm on the download link, anyone else?

Comment by Mincho Hristov Ivanov on February 12, 2013 at 12:05pm

I wish someone makes a co-op S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl instead of all those "Z" games... id rather explore the zone with my buddies as stalkers rather than shooting generic zombies...

The Wasteland 2 video was nice :D more power to them...

Btw i have a suggestion about the "What We’re Playing" section... try to play one old game for evry show... a game in the same gerne as the one you are currently playing but a few years back :D i can tell you i tried that with Legend of Grimrock and Wizardry 8 and it rly puts things in perspective...surprising...thow sometimes the results are wiered...playing Demon Souls and Severance side by side was ..wow..

I am also getting an error
Comment by milkntruffle on February 12, 2013 at 1:41pm

I have a related question, Tralamazza and Axel...for the past few episodes, regardless of where I try to download TAF (iTunes, off the download link above), it downloads RIDIC slow compared to other files of about the same file size (~40 MB or so). 

Why might that be? Generally, I'm downloading the show a few hours after it's gone up, so maybe the server is busy with downloads from others? Or some slowness intrinsic to the server? I don't really know what I'm talking about but I like saying "server" :).

Love the show, grateful to Brent and Lorin for bringing me news and silent chuckles on a weekly basis :DD

Axe Lords & Axehead Army Round Table...!!

After hearing about the news of EBA discontinuing in about another 50 episodes I wonder how far into the future that puts us time wise. 

More importantly I am sad and to be very honest with you I feel like something great would die. This gaming community has more spirit and intelligent conversation to offer than any other..!

Heres what I think.....

Thank you EBC Crew

Just finished listening to the last episode of EBC and very saddened by your anouncement. I've been a loyal listener since the very beginning and a big fan of the show. Thanks for the many hours of epic podcasts and the many years of entertainment you gave us.

Even though you don't even know me at all, I feel like I got to know you guys so well over the years. It really is so much more than just loosing a podcast, we are loosing 3 great friends that we hung out with every…
