Critical Strike 76: Rice Pudding!!

July 24th, 2011 . by Josh

We’re so close to being back on schedule and it was actually really fun recording this episode with Kyle but I think the thing that made it so great was his new microphone. Its funny how something so simple can mix up how you feel about a show after 6 years. Editing was easier and so was recording it. Here is what was discussed: Spotify, Killzone 3, Warhammer 40K: Kill Team, Dungeon Siege 3, Gatling Gears, NCAA 12, Galaga Legions DX, a very awkward story involving Kyle without a shirt on and 80’s music playing in public. 

Music in this episode: The Lonely Island, DjCUTMAN – Goon Ball

Critical Strike 75: Explosive Birds

July 6th, 2011 . by Josh

Well we’ve had a nice long summer break but its time to get back to recording on a regular schedule. Hopefully things calm down in both our lives so we can spend some more time on all this stuff as we’ve both missed it! Its also nice to know that Kyle’s attention isn’t any better after all this time because during the intro he said it was episode 74 even though its actually 75. Regardless of all that, here is what we discussed: Outland, inFAMOUS/inFAMOUS 2, Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale, Terraria, ilomilo, World of Keflings, Socom 4, Uncharted 3 beta.

Music in this episode: Animal Crossing, Duke Nukem Forever

Critical Strike 74: Chiptunes Tres!

June 2nd, 2011 . by Josh

It’s been two years since I visited this style of music, but now seems like a better time than ever to revisit the chiptune community. I’ve learned a few new things this time around, there are a ton of new artists who are doing amazing work and chiptunes seem to be getting better and better. I’m happy I took some time off from doing this type of episode because it just feels right now, hopefully everyone enjoys all the hard work these artists have put into their music and shows them a bit of support.

Artists in this episode: minusbaby, syphus, criticalhit, The J. Arthur Keenes Band, Starscream, Cornbeast, Dr. Szliszka, Chetreo, SMILETRON, Nullsleep, Arcade Superstar, Wizwars

Critical Strike 73: Space Crabs!

May 9th, 2011 . by Josh

We finally got around to recording a actual episode but the best part about it is we were once again joined by our good friend Bill from For Your FYI who has made several appearances in the past. It’s always nice to get the guys from that show on here because we always seem to have more fun. It was nice getting together with the boys to do another episode and even answer some questions from twitter. Here is what we discussed: Crappy movies, Sanctum, Crysis 2, Minecraft, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Mortal Kombat, Vanquish, Billy’s Roku.

Music in this episode: Motorstorm Apocalypse, Portal 2, Mortal Kombat

Critical Strike 72: Melting Faces Again

May 1st, 2011 . by Josh

About a year ago I promised to everyone that I would do another music episode based on video game bands and for some unknown reason I just never did it. I’m sure that makes me a jerk, but at least its finally done now, right? Either way, I’m happy to finally get this settled and release another music episode since a bunch of new bands have emerged and released their own interpretations with the video game music we’ve all grown up and loved! I hope you enjoy all their work and that you seek them out to give them support so they may continue to give us these face melting tunes.

Music in this episode: The Megas, Distorted Evolution, FamicomBit, The Protomen, This Place is Haunted, The Kode, Year 200X, Daniel Tidwell, VikingGuitar, Descendants Of Erdrick, The Advantage, Powerglove

Critical Strike 71: Robo-Fists

April 13th, 2011 . by Josh

Finally getting back into the routine of doing a show, Kyle and I were a bit surprised that we had so many games to discuss to begin with that a few didn’t even make it. That isn’t exactly something that happens to us too often because we have such limited playing time, but it sure made for a welcome change! Here is what we discussed: MLB The Show 11, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Pixeljunk Shooter 2, Days of Thunder Nascar, Nintendo 3DS, Super Street Fighter IV 3D, Singularity, Fallout New Vegas, Beyond Good & Evil, Red Dead Redemotion, Rift

Music in this episode: Danger Zone (H-Pizzle), Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

Critical Strike 70: PAX Wrap Up

March 23rd, 2011 . by Josh

if you aren’t sick of hearing about Penny Arcade Expo East yet, well now you can hear all about our impressions about this years event! It was nice seeing Kyle and Nancy again but I’m pretty sure we were all overwhelmed by the size of the event this year. Thanks to everyone we met and all the great games we got to play but if  you’ve never been, you should really try and go one year just to experience the pure chaos that is a gathering of thousands of nerds. Here is some of the games we discussed: Swarm, Duke Nukem Forever, Mortal Kombat, Super Street Fighter IV 3D, Dragon Nest, Child of Eden.

Music in this episode: Contra Snow Field OC ReMix

That Gamer Podcast, Pax East Coverage – Day 2

March 14th, 2011 . by Josh

The fine gentlemen over at That Gamer Hub were kind enough to invite Kyle and myself over to their quad-super hotel studio to record a post day 2 PAX East podcast. We were a little hopped up and Kyle might have been under the influence of alcohol after our little Super Street Fighter IV gathering with The Rumble Pack but it ended up being a good time! We’d like to thank That Gamer Hub for having and introducing us to John and Rachel (from Pixelated Geek).
