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 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.

Critical Strike 15: Progress Reports

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. We know already that no one will probably post which one of us was their MVP, so I decided to start the failure trophy. With that said, Kyle won the failure trophy for this episode. Listen to find out why!

In this episode we discussed:

  • What we’ve been up to
  • Top 5 casual games
  • Video game music challenge
  • Our progress reports on our challenge from Playgasm episode 9

Transition music in order: Samurai Showdown 2, Chip`n Dales Rescue Rangers, Kirby’s Adventure
