I'm posting this from an iPhone! Not really, but wouldn't that be AWESOME?!

You can also listen to the podcast on the good 'ole !


Let's face it: the week of January 1st - January 7th was a total bore. The Virtual Console only released two (awful) games, no notable games were released, and the most interesting story involved Wii-enabled pornography. It's what we in the biz call "crapadocous."

BUT FEAR NOT! I gathered Stan and Steven for a podcast of epic proportions. Through our magnificent talents, we make even the most mundane of the aforementioned a verifiable festival of sound. In addition, we answer listener mail, and discuss what cancelled or forgotten games we'd like to see make a return.

Like always, I demand that you all subscribe to us on iTunes, and leave a lengthy review. And afterwards, I demand that you send us more listener mail. And after that, I demand that you bring me a pony. I've always wanted one of those...

Actually we have a worldwide fanbase, so English doesn't need to be a native language in order to write to us. However, if English is the writer's native language, we just ask that he or she reread the email before sending it or it's going to sound weird when read over the air.

What's this, Strong Bad Email?

"Karl, why do you hate videogames?" "I'll tell you why I hate videogames!" Classic.

When are you guys going to update the podcast link on the main page? It currently stops at episode 27.

PryopizmStan Ferguson, Staff AlumnusJanuary 11, 2007

We're ovehauling the entire podcast hub. It's my responsibilty, I want to be able to have it up by the weekend. But it's going to take a while. Thank TYP when it's done for being the brilliant coder he is.

Good; I'm currently stuck at episode 30 because it's not in the hub and I'm too lazy to search through past news.

StogiJanuary 11, 2007

Thanks, but actually I meant to say episode 30 is the next one I need to listen to. face-icon-small-smile.gif

I hope is a new commercial... I also hope I get to a machine I can listen to the podcast on.

PryopizmStan Ferguson, Staff AlumnusJanuary 12, 2007

no new commercials, Ceric. I'm sorry.

StogiJanuary 30, 2007

The best part about listening to the podcasts after they've been release is we get to laugh when Karl says something that's completely wrong. face-icon-small-happy.gif

Speaking of Dead Phoenix and how it was announced and some assets came out and then it was just canceled, I think we might see the same thing from Super Paper Mario. I think it might be in trouble. We've heard nothing of it--it just fell off the release schedules.

Well, that didn't happen. face-icon-small-tongue.gif

I just finished listening to episode 34. You guys better start releasing them faster or else I'm going to catch up.

I should change Vudu's title to forum prick. face-icon-small-wink.gif

StogiJanuary 30, 2007

Indeed.

Ack! Why aren't episodes 35 and 36 on Odeo?
