Xbox Live: Be Aware

January 10th, 2008 . by Josh

For the amount of Xbox Live users out there, you would think more people would be aware of such problems that they may face. It’s only to be expected, the more popular a service becomes, the more danger their users are in.

Over at XBL Radio and Platform Nation podcast host INFECTEDPB503 and chiahippo held a interview with two victims of social engineering. Please be sure to give this interview a listen to understand the risks your Xbox Live account could be in danger of. Sure it may not happen to everyone, but just be aware of the situation.

 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.

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.
