Critical Strike 18: Cranky and Confused

March 4th, 2008 . by Josh

Well, we are back and once more joined by Keith. The problem with this, Keith is cranky and Kyle is confused! So what does this mean? It’s a rather interesting episode that is action-packed with ranting! Here’s what we discussed:

  • What we’ve been up to
  • Our take on EA buying Take-Two
  • Sony decent news round up
  • Video game music challenge
  • What we think about this current-gen now that we’re two years into it

Transition music in this episode: Xenogears, Leisure Suit Larry 6, Darkwing Duck

Critical Strike 17: Now with a 16% failure rate

February 18th, 2008 . by Josh

This episode we were joined by Mr Chiahippo, one of the co-hosts from PSH Radio, and we missed our very own Keith Harbourt. Here are some of the things we discussed:

  • What we’ve been up to
  • Mandatory Playstation 3 game installs
  • 16% failure rate on the Xbox 360
  • Video game music challenge
  • GDC predictions and what we REALLY want to see

Please give us some iTunes reviews, and if you’d like to submit an answer to the video game music challenge, then head over to the forum, register, and send Josh a private message with your answer.

Critical Strike 16: Getting To Know Us Like The Palm Of Your Hand

February 3rd, 2008 . by jb

Josh thought it would be a good idea for this episode to forgo our usual fighty/shouty top five lists and the Video Game Music Challenge. Instead, we do what we do worst, we let our egos do the talking and tell how brilliant each of us is. We discuss our feelings and emotions, how we felt when we discovered that our princess was in another castle. We get in touch with our respective feminine sides (Josh can’t keep his hands to himself!). Okay, that’s not really how this podcast goes down, because no one wants to hear that crap. But we do talk a bit about ourselves, who we are, and what we like as gamers.

Late in this episode we discuss a few games that we would like to see updated (as necessary) and brought out on either Xbox Live Arcade or the Playstation Store. At the end, Kyle and I give out this ep’s Fail Award (guess who gets it!).

So, without further ado, I give you Critical Strike Podcast, episode (pssst! josh, what episode number is this?) 15…16? Question mark?…The Nerd, the geek, and the sasquatch.

Transition Music: Marvel vs Capcom, Final Fantasy 7, No More Heros

January 21st, 2008 . by Josh

Welcome back folks. In this episode we started a new trend where we want you, the listener, to vote in this post’s comments on who was the podcast MVP.

Listen to find out why!

  • What we’ve been up to
  • Top 5 casual games

Playgasm Episode 13: Hello, Goodbye, Hello!

December 24th, 2007 . by Josh

 We're back, but are we REALLY back? Yes! This just happens to be our final podcast under the name Playgasm, we're moving on to our new name Critical Strike.

This episode we all finally got back together to talk about our top five games of 2007, the good the bad and the Kyle of 2007 and of course the video game music challenge.

Where are they now?

November 22nd, 2007 . by Josh

So it's been about late October since our last release, but what have we been up to since then? Well lots of stuff has been going on that has held us from actually doing a recording. Personal issues, work, family related things.

But fear not! We will be returning very shortly, the only difference is it will no longer be under the Playgasm name. That's right! We are no longer the Playgasm Podcast!

Be sure to check back for a new release soon and to see our new name! Until then, remember… Keith loves you all! (except Kyle)

Playgasm Episode 12: Keith’s Return!

October 21st, 2007 . by Josh

The title says it all, thats ALL you need to know. Keith is indeed, back! He came out of his two week retirement just to tell us how much he loathed Pokemon and several other over hyped games in this episodes top 5. Those who love Kyle, well you'll be sad as he decided to do other things in his life besides sit here and record this with us.

If you would like to submit a answer to the video game music challenge, please head over to our forum and private message Josh. Please give us a digg as well! 

Playgasm Episode 11: Smashed Dreams

October 15th, 2007 . by Josh

Kyle and I return this week, Keith has been over worked so he was sleeping. Much talk of Orange Box, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and the lack of Super Smash Bros: Brawl this year, what more can you ask for?

Of course, we weren't going to be lazy this week so the video game music challenge returns along side of this weeks top 5 discussion.

Please give us a digg and enjoy. 

Playgasm Episode 10: 4 Minute Warning

October 8th, 2007 . by Josh

This is a short episode, Kyle and I wanted to get something out there since we've all been fairly busy. Sorry everyone who is sick of hearing about Halo 3, we did it just a bit. Besides a few mentions though, you'll be glad to know there is just 4 whole minutes of actual game play discussion.

This episode we dicussed what we've been doing, obviously. The top 5 we decided to go with this week was the most innovative things that we feel made gaming better. Unfortunately no video game music challenge this week as I just didn't really feel like doing one, don't like it? Handle it!

And please give us a digg, or I'm sending Kyle to your house!
