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

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
