Episode 94: Metro 2033

Episode 94: Metro 2033

​For the first time in our 94 episode history there's just two of us for a whole show.  There may have been a hangover or extra episode somewhere with just two, but it's a first for the main episodes.  Fortunately, Dan and Corey were able to put out a full two hour episode on Metro 2033, whose sequel Metro: Last Light is coming out next week.  Metro 2033 is one of those games that all the Athletes kind of overlooked when it came out (before the podcast of course.)  Dan even confused it for another title.  So listen in and find out what Corey and Dan think of the cult hit from 4A Games.  Show notes and flash player after the jump:

Episode 93: Monaco/Don't Starve

We were minus Will this week and had some technical difficulties, with the recording/streaming laptop overheating about halfway through the main segment.  Luckily we were able to salvage the audio that had been recorded on the livestream, which we then tacked on at the end of our Don't Starve discussion.  No one came out and said it, but we all secretly blamed Will for not being there, even though there was obviously no connection.  The rest of episode 93 went off without a hitch, and hopefully it never happens again!  Show notes and flash player after the jump:

Episode 90: Age of Empires 2 HD

For this week's episode, Dan, Eric, Corey and Will FINALLY sit down together and all play the same game at the same time.  Never mind that they were in four separate locations, as it's something that doesn't happen that often.  The Age of Empires 2 HD remake brought them all together for some old school Teuton and Byzantine vs. Frank and Celt action like they did back in the day.   EA also won (for the second year in a row) Consumerist's worst company in America, so the Athletes weigh in on that too during the episode.  Show notes and flash player after the jump.

Episode 79: 2013 Gaming Predictions

Some of the predictions are what you would consider "safe" while others could be construed as being a little more out there. With all the new systems and games coming out, 2013 is certain to be an exciting and interesting time for gamers. Show notes after the jump:
