Episode 158: The Return of the Tim

In: Podcasts by Edie Sellers

10 Oct 2011

Cough. Hack.

Yeah, this should be titled the Cold and Flu Season episode.

That’s what’s held up this podcast. GameHounds HQ has been crushed by illness, with everyone in the household dead on their feet and hacking up furballs.

Fortunately, you can’t get the flu over the internet, so GamerEdie didn’t spread the plague to co-hosts Nick Dinicola and Holy Goalie. Nor did she give it to special guest, Tim Wilsie of The Widget Podcast. You remember Tim. Former co-host? Deep voice? Brain the size of a planet and all they do is let him open and close doors? Yeah, that guy.

Tim visits us to talk about the return of GameFan Magazine and sticks around to talk about games, Netflix, and all the other stuff.

Also, listen to this episode and you could get a free copy of Issue 6 of GameFan.

Enjoy.

I totally agree with Edie about the character animation and voice acting on Deus Ex. I remember telling my wife in the first couple of days how disappointed I was with those two aspects because the gameplay is so much fun! I’m no Steam Achievement whore, but I played through twice and got all the achievements. Playing through on hardest and going for the pacifist achievement was some of the best fun I’ve had since ME2. It’s just too bad that I can’t stand to play through again because the story/voicing/animation is disappointing.

Loved the episode!

Just wondering – how does the content of GameFanMag compare to Killscreen Magazine?

Also, where’s the promo code page on the GFM site? Looked around for a while and didn’t see a place to enter the code.

I agreed with how Edie felt about Deus Ex. I honestly think it feels like a last gen game. Also the obligatory: “I never asked for this” -Adam Jenson

Oh thank gawd I’m not the only one. I was wondering if I was just being too hard on Deus Ex.

As for where to add the code: Just put the edition six in your card, and when you go to check out, use the promo code. It should make the cart total $0.00.

Let me know if it doesn’t work for you.

Compared to Killscreen, not sure. Never looked at Killscreen, but if you pick up a free copy, let me know how it compares.

Hey Edie, did you ever post a link to the video upscaler Tim was talking about?

Got my issue of GameFanMag, and it looks gorgeous!

And for those interested, here’s links to two sampler issues of Kill Screen magazine. It’s much more text-heavy, but the writing is very good.

I’ve inserted spaces into the URLs in hopes that they’ll pass the comment thread URL filter.
