In this SPECIAL, ONE-OF-A-KIND SPECIAL Edition* of You Shall Not Cast (you know it’s special because I said it twice), podcasters Alex and Drew play the recent Sony-published blockbuster inFAMOUS — available in stores now for PS3. Both casters of the pod give their thoughts about the game, ranging in topics from the game’s story, the gameplay mechanics, the main quest missions vs. the side missions, the characters, the dialogue and the karma system. Plus, for a second there, they throw all masculinity aside and discuss the finer points of John and Kate Plus Eight. Only the Gaming Gods know why…

For more discussion about inFAMOUS, keep your eyes peeled for the next episode of You Shall Not Cast — where the Hosts with the Mosts will also discuss the recently released Disney/Pixar film Up.

*This edition isn’t really too special. We plan to make a lot more of these video reviews. We just wanted to sound important. /cries

You were patient with our delays, our excuses and our endless whoring on Twitter.

Now, you shall be rewarded! Episode 2* is finally here after over a month-long hiatus. The reasons for our delays between episodes one and two were numerous… but to eloquently sum it up, let’s just say “Finals Suck”. 

Now that school is over, our schedules are more steady, and two of us are graduated (hurray!), our episodes should be much, much more timely in the future. Please believe us! Now onto this week’s episode…

You Shall Not Cast – Episode 2

This week, the mighty podcasters will discuss J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Star Wars: Episodes 1-3, Drew’s “Racial Intolerance Week” (Amistad, Crash, Hotel Rwanda), Box Office Wrap-Up, Jack Sparrow as Frank Sinatra, Kevin Smith’s new project (again), character analysis of Mighty Ducks, a new director for Conan,  Keanu Reeves playing two roles exactly the same in the same movie, and (a lack of) excitement for Angels and Demons.

On the gaming side, we discuss exploring the Capitol Wasteland in Fallout 3, re-visiting Mirror’s Edge, disc read errors 50 hours into a game, the appeal of flocking virtual sheep, playing with (rag)dolls, Commandos of the bionic variety, downloadable games, awesome trailers with shit, awesome trailers with horses, Modern Warfare 2 vs. hating freedom, a fond farewell to Rogue Squadron, and some gabbin’ about JRPGs.  

Our intro/break/outro music is Night Lies by Bang Camaro

 

*You may be confused why the show is introduced as Episode 3 instead of Episode 2. Well, due to technical difficulties, Episode 2 was not able to be edited properly, and Episode 3 became Episode 2. Sometime down the line Episode 2 (now called Episode 1.5: The Lost Episode) may be made available.

Finals Got Us Down

So as many of our friends at SJSU know, finals are coming up. Not only are our brains melting, but it is also delaying the second episode of You Shall Not Cast. We should be able to get this episode up by the end of the week. Make sure you check back and thanks for all your support.

Racial Intolerance Week!

This week, for “You Shall Not Cast: Episode 3”, I’ve been watching a few movies that have strong overtones of racial intolerance and bigotry: “Crash”, “Amistad” and “Hotel Rwanda” … it’s too much, man, too much. I almost feel like melodramatically dropping to my knees and screaming, “Damn my alabastar skin, and the hatred it brings!” You just can’t trust us honkies. However, I’m been somewhat purged of my Caucasia-Guilt, since “Crash” shines light on some the ugly racist mannerisms of many ethnicities. Phew!

Anyhow, all these movies will be featured and talked about in Episode 3 of YSNC. I’m also thinking about popping in “Schindler’s List” as well tonight (because nothing says “Happy Cinco de Mayo” like watching one of the most depressing movies of all time).

Any other recommendations for my Racial Intolerance Week? There’s plenty of misery out there in cinematic form, just waiting to be watched and dissected via podcast. Let us know in the comments section below!

Cowabunga: Turtles In Time Remake Coming to XBLA

As you will soon figure out, we are huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. I personally have dreams of living in a sewer with mutated turtles eating pizza and jumping on one foot screaming, “Ow…my toe my toe!” after they step on a nail.

Now I won’t have to hunt down a Super Nintendo to play Turtles in Time as a remake is in the works for XBLA (possibly the PSN and WiiWare too).

Check out the video below for some footage of the game.

I’m glad it looks like the original gameplay is being preserved. The visuals are also looking really nice.

Found on Joystiq: Turtles in Time remake in development for XBLA, possibly PSN and WiiWare

Now for our fun disclaimer. This podcast contains explicit language and is intended for adults ages 18 and older.
