The All New CurrentGenCast – 3rd June 2012

Like a bus, you wait forever for posts on CurrentGen, and two come at once.

I actually never got that cliche though – the most bus travel I ever did was in Southampton which has a really great bus system. I digress though, as we have an all new podcast.

That’s right, Phil and Thez are back, talking about the topics that matter. Like what we’re doing now, fast food, Japanese Power Rangers Parodies, the Young Justice cartoon, and more.

You can find me, Thez, now writing for the Linux User & Developer magazine and website, and Phil is starting to podcast with True PC Gaming.

We hope to have another cast soon!

Gamecast 16: The Return of the Gamecast – Part 1: The Gamecast

Hello there. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well in CurrentGen terms, 2 weeks is a long time.

That is all changing though, and we’ll talk about it on the podcast.

Although, I suppose it’s been over half a year since the last Gamecast. I was thinking I’d do a shop of Backstreet’s Back for this post, but when I looked at the cover I felt it was too much effort. So I guess enjoy…no picture?

Anyway, we talk about a great many things. The state of South Park, my recent Jurassic Park binge, Telltale’s Jurassic Park game, the continuing adventures of Luke and Thez in Uncharted 3 and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Phil’s addiction to Skyrim, Luke’s surprise over Zelda: Skyward Sword, and how Thez plays a corrupt Police Cop in XBLA Top-down Space Sim Fusion: Genesis.

See you next cast!

TGIF Newscast – 4th November 2011

So I’m trying to figure out what I want to do tomorrow. Part of me is flirting with the idea of going back to that game store and asking about a few things, but they said they’d E-mail me after I was there Thursday and I don’t wanna seem too weird about it.

I mean, I could just be like “heh well I happened to be in the area and thought I’d drop in” but maybe that would seem really bizarre. At the same time, they might flake out and forget to E-mail me so gawd dammit I should just check cuz I’m tired of waiting for Gears 3 and Dark Souls.  :(

Also Uncharted 3, I figured what the hell, add it to the pile. I’m also probably going to hit the city center, maybe go to the English Shop and get me some delightful snacks. I read online about an English books and tea shop here so maybe I will go there as well. Or maybe I’ll get stuff to cook with and make an elaborate meal. Hmm…decisions decisions…

Thursday Newscast – 3rd November 2011

ARE YOU FOLKS EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF 3DS WARE?….YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN’T BE. A Burger Time related mix-up causes false hope. Also, hey. Guess what. Uncharted 3. It’s an Uncharted game. People are digging for stuff to say about it. We’ll leave it at: It’s another Uncharted game. We REALLY like the last 2. This game is also cool.

The name “David Cage” is sadly nowhere to be seen in Heavy Rain: Director’s Cut. I was personally hoping for a whole sub chapter playing as him. Oh, and that Devil May Cry game from Ninja Theory has some kind of cool looking screenshots. Maybe you should go look at them as we stumble our way through the news.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Wednesday Newscast – 2nd November 2011

These god damn computers ruin everything! It’s all their fault! Look what they’re making me do!

*beats child relentlessly*

So yeah we didn’t talk about it on the podcast (I like to fill descriptions with things we didn’t talk about, it’s a cute little gimmick of mine, you see), but how about that Judge William Adams thing? Sheesh, I’m not one to get sucked into the big internet news stories but that one is just too messed up.

I’d post a link here but there are like a billion links..which one do I choose?! Oh god…I don’t understand these computers…LOOK WHAT YOU’RE MAKING ME DO!!!  *beats up listeners*

Monday Frightcast – 31st October 2011

Greeting ghouls and ghoulettes and welcome to a FRIGHTFULLY exciting…okay I guess that’s far enough with that. We kind of forgot it was Halloween. You can’t really blame me for that though, since Halloween is (presumably) banned in Germany for promoting anti-constitutional tendencies in the form of totally bitchin’ wolfman costumes.

So intense is the German stranglehold on Halloween that I was forced to forget at brainwave gunpoint or face dire repercussions, and it is only now that the memories of this delightful holiday come flooding back to me. All the fun stuff I did like…w..well…Trick or treating was pretty fun. I went to a party once, that was kind of cool. Sometimes I dressed up. Ah yes. Good times.

Trick or treat! – Phil and Thez
