Critical Strike 57: Filling Each Other In

June 20th, 2010 . by Josh

So since Kyle and Pete (from the PSNerds) decided to go on sabbatical. Billy and myself decided to get together and do a episode that will be released as Critical Strike and PSNerds! It felt a bit strange since I’m so used to having Kyle at each episode but it was a fun experience anyhow. Thanks Billy for allowing me to fill in for PSNerds and thank you for filling in for Critical Strike! Here’s what we discussed: My trip to Funspot’s classic arcade tournament, Joe Danger, Modnation Racers, Lost Planet 2, PSN+, Rainbow Six: Vegas.

Music in this episode: Mega Man Remastered HD (Cutman), International Karate (C64) Cover

Critical Strike… Strikes Again!

June 13th, 2010 . by Josh

It’s been awhile since this subject last came up, but back in May of 2008 we joined a site formed around other podcasts called Platform Nation. It was about September or so of that year we also left Platform Nation due to some differences in opinion and we both just went our own separate ways.

Two years later and a bit of growing up between both, Critical Strike and Platform Nation have now once again joined forces to fight the evils that is…. something. We’re once again excited to be rejoined with some of our favorite podcasts and people we once worked with and hopefully it’ll be good for all the parties involved.

For those who do not know about Critical Strike, it’s a simple podcast that is recorded every fortnight by Josh and Kyle. We pretty much just discuss the games we’ve been playing and occasionally spice things up with discussions of video game music or retro game challenges between each other which serves as a nice way to introduce someone to a game they’ve never played.

Critical Music 20: Sellout!

June 12th, 2010 . by Josh

As mentioned in the prior episode of Critical Music I am now on a official break from the project but that doesn’t mean it’s going to sit idle! This episode brings our first guest into the Critical Music world and it also happens to be one of my favorite all time podcaster mik from The Fanboys Lunchcast!

I’d like to thank mik for stepping in and doing a episode of Critical Music and helping us out while we take a break from the project. Please do us a favor and show him some support and check out The Fanboys because well, they’re great!

A brief tour of the Funspot first floor

June 7th, 2010 . by Josh

As most of you know I spent this past weekend in northern New Hampshire at the worlds largest arcade Funspot. Nothing can describe how great this place can be if you have deep appreciation for older games.

I brought my new camcorder with me but sadly I forgot the larger memory stick for it thus leaving me with only 2gb of space to record on. It’s not so bad, I was able to record a quick walk through of Funspot’s first floor which is the main attraction there anyway.

This week we kind of invaded our friends over at Gamer Corporation and used their stream to do the show live!

Here’s what we discussed: Kyle’s relationship threatening birthday gift, Final Fantasy XIII, Bioshock 2 multiplayer, God of War 3, Pokemon HeartGold, Battlefield Bad Company 2.
