As if you need yet another reason to get on Twitter next week (uh, you did know about our upcoming Liveblogging of the major E3 press conferences, right?), Electronic Arts has announced that you’ll be able to ask questions directly to Tim Schafer about his upcoming game, Brütal Legend. According to the announcement: For your [...]
Here it is, your weekly Humpdate. And it’s a very full house with all four of our regular Humdpate cast reporting for duty. ThatOneGuyRy, Maynard’s Minutes, WillG the Sportshound and the Digital Cowboys fill out this week’s show. And where’s Hawkes, you say? Well, he’s part of the Digital Cowboys this week, so we really [...]
What? It’s Monday? Well, that doesn’t count. It’s the last day of the weekend so it counts. Yes, yes, I know — Monday technically is only a holiday. It’s not really Sunday at all. Well, all I have to say is “nutsh*t.” Chewy nutsh*t, at that. Here’s your damn show. On Monday. There, we said [...]
I’m not an engineer.
Oh, I’m a tech head as much as the next guy, but I do not have strong electronics skills, nor do I possess the time to build a special coupling that allows me to hook up a Wii to my PC for the purposes of backing the files on the built in memory board.
What I have is an understanding of technology and imagination, and it is armed with these very lethal weapons that I write this article.
I had been chatting with Bert, a long time listener with whom I’ve developed a personal relationship. We had started talking about when the next generation of consoles would come out and threw around ideas of what type of system they would be. We both realized that without some major changes in the hardware, piracy would still be a major concern for console makers and software developers.
The average gamer bemoans any DRM. They beg, plead, and cry to publishers how it’s not fair to consumers to have to deal with bloat in order to play a game. Some developers have introduced the finger to these cry-babies, others have listened and complied.
Perhaps they should have used the finger.
So with GameHounds on Radio silence till next week, I figured I’d let you guys know where you could find some of us until then. For example, you can hear Commander Tim on The Digital Cowboys Episode 103. And while you’re at it, be sure to check out Alex and Tony (you know them from [...]
If you’re desperate for some GameHounds–style lovin’, you might want to check out Some Other Castle’s podcast (aka: Some Other Podcast) this week. Just before Edie left the country, she sat down with Elaine and Leah of SOP to discuss stuff, including Call of Duty 4, Fable 2, Chronicles of Riddick, Persona 3 and 4, [...]
Here it is. What you’ve been waiting for. Well, half of it at least. Yes, as mentioned earlier, the usual GameHounds repetoir was hijacked by early-onset Alzheimers — in other words, Edie forgot to press “record.” So, here’s what you do have. You have Hawkes, Edie and Tim for a while, and they offer great [...]
