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).

Critical Strike 68: Behold LittleBigKyle 2!

February 14th, 2011 . by Josh

This was an interesting episode for us as it marks the first time Kyle pretty much did the entire thing on his own. While I don’t think he enjoyed it as much as I did, I think it maybe something we see more of in the future! Some other fun things came out of it like Kyle’s new hobby of trolling people on Facebook. Here is what else we discussed: LittleBigPlanet 2, Singularity, 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

December 29th, 2010 . by Josh

So this episode has been sitting on my hard drive for a few weeks, I really can’t explain why I didn’t edit it sooner minus something that happened to me last week.
