By the way, the last cast was solid guys. I LOL'd several times while editing it.

And... Phil from Main Street is an asshole.

Damnit, I downloaded the last two podcasts to listen to, OGG version. Only to find that the laptop that was stolen had that program on it that ran OGG. WTH is that thing called again?

I have no mic now or skype.

Ugh, listening to Foolz metacritic Endless Ocean 2.

I hate how metacritic transfers scores.

Eurogamer gave it a 7/10 not a 70

Nintendo Life gave an 8/10 not an 80.

The second game has more reviews that metacritic misses out on. It seems more appreciated than the first but still fights to get past these silly reviewers like the NOM one which wants something to fight or shoot.

LOL @ Foolz on Disaster, it still makes me laugh. "When the second volcano erupts"



This game is so awesome it had two exploding volcanoes LOL



Most people are thinking "Wut? The SECOND volcano?"



Oh yeah, pokemon rumble demo sucks. Bit trip is ok but limited and repetitive.

 There's not just one program, OGG is a codec.  But VLC plays everything.

Looks like I have the software needed. What kind of bandwidth does the Skype call take?

 I don't have a solid amount, but mathematically, Skype should be 64kbps (anything more would be overkill for the audio).  So make that 128kbps combined up and down.  Let's go with 90 minutes for a call.

128kbps = 16KB/s
90 minutes = 5400 seconds.
= 86,400KB
= 84.3MB

My brother is coming over tomorrow night, you know what that means. It might be better to do the podcast tonight. Just a thought.

It's NPD we gotta get Vader.

Listening to the podcast right now (well just finished listening when you read this)

Why is Homer recording the podcast in the toilet?

Super Bowl! What's that?! A giant toilet?

Australia bashing, Foolz where is my thread?!

Sonic bashing LOL Gogo Yoda gogo!

What is more awesome then finishing 120 stars and getting a sonic level? How about another Mario level? P.S. I hope they get rid of the stars in Galaxy 2, but I have no high hopes about it. 

My sister fell of the Balance Board once.

Manass what's that?

Good show, Homer get out of the toilet.

Time for Leo's life-altering confession for the month!

Many, many, years ago I used to work in conjunction with Pete Roithmayr (Lead Purchaser for Electronic's Boutique in the United States at the time) to decide Pre-Order focus titles and Product Allocation for hundreds of their stores.

I also used to write and distribute Quick-Picks, Pre-Order lists for many of the North Eastern states.

...so Yeah, I tend to focus on only the good aspects of games and naturally try to sell what I get excited about.

Yes, I'll get excited for games after 10 minutes of playing them... but there's two things to watch for AFTER those ten minutes of play time:

(1) If I say a game SUCKS... It really does! If I can't find something good to say about a game, don't bother!

(2) If I STICK with a game, through to the end, you KNOW it's worth playing!

Every once in a while I would make a topic in the GS Forums stating "I Play Bad Games So You Don't Have To" to try out games others had doubts about or couldn't afford to spend money on...

...and it kinda just stuck!

It was a lifetime ago that I did this, but old habits die hard!

I assume this is in response to something I said in the last podcast. Nyaa

I love the way you post, please never change.
