Aliens invade the podcast this week, and it causes Drew to forget the introduction format (apparently we don’t have names now). Our alien overloads also caused us to discuss their Earth domination plans, which are made clear in the new Wii shooter, The Conduit.

And I, for one, welcome our new alien overlords. I’d like to remind them that as a trusted podcast personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves. (obligatory Simpsons joke).


The message from the extraterrestrial sponsors is available from the link below. The message is cleverly disguised as a fantastic somewhat-weekly video game podcast.

You Shall Not Cast – Episode 4(b)

We also discuss the merits of keyblades when compared to chainsaws. We revisit the Pacific Theater in Battlefield 1943, and go cartoony in Battlefield: Heroes. We offend everyone Down Under with our Australian accents. We talk old PC games, be it city building games, RTS games or board game ports. We talk point-and-click games and their wonderful fit with the Wii. Alex has a nerdgasm when he discusses Monster Hunter on PSP. Alex has mob flashbacks when he chokes random henchmen on the Wii, but can’t hack the mob life when he fails to micro-manage. Alex… well… he keeps going, with talk about Terminator: Salvation, Bionic Commando, his man-crush on Capcom, iPhone gaming and Rock Band 2.

Alex also takes over the video game news section, where he talks about Mass Effect 2, Calling, Nathan Fillion in Halo ODST, Command and Conquer 4, the adventures of Scurvy Pete, Guitar Hero 5, Mario Galaxy 2, Resident Evil 5 on Wii, Wii Motion Plus, the Summer of Fighters, and probably more I missed. It’s a long episode.

Check it out! And check below to see that illustrious YouTube video of Alex getting his shit knocked in Rock Band 2. Laugh at his unpleasantness!

Music used in today’s podcast is from the song “Bliss”, by Muse, off the Origin of Symmetry album.

Episode 3(b) – The Overly Late and Overtly Nerdy E3 Edition

OK, so not only did we dedicate an entire episode to dissecting the Electroic Entertainment Expo, but we also published it about a month too late! Fine, so we’re not punctual. Don’t pretend like you don’t still love us.

e3

Late or not, this ep is still stocked with gushy gaming goodness. If you’re picking up a controller or a Wii-mote sometime in the next year, chances are you’ll play a few games talked about in this episode. For those who aren’t quite as nerdy as us, E3 is the expo that more or less highlights what will be coming in the video game world over the next year or so.

You Shall Not Film Ep. 2 – Resident Evil 5

Is there anything more scary than zombies? Yes: waiting on the results of an STD test. That shit is scary. However, I’m not sure how someone could fit that drama into video game format. The fear just isn’t the same when you’re talking about e-Herpes.

Zombies are ALMOST as scary, though. Especially the cunning, quick-moving zombies of Resident Evil 5. They come at you from all directions, like some less-perverted, undead bukkake.

In this episode of You Shall Not Film, you can get the full experience for yourself. Alex and Drew will try to discuss the merits of RE5 in this episode, but often get sidetracked because of the necro-nuisances. They’ll say things like “I think the controls in this game are a bit cumbersome, but after a whi–HOLY FUCK, WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE! OUR WEAPONS ARE USELESS AGAINST THESE INFECTED OF THE DAMNED!”

But why am I giving all this away? Just check out the video below. And if you don’t want to hear us drag on (much like I’m doing here), fear not — it’s only about 10 minutes. Enjoy! And comment below.

The Trio also discuss this week in movie news, including the Box Office Breakdown, the possible remake of a Patrick Swayze movie that’s actually good, the possible return of one of cinema’s most memorable villains, and a favorite franchise that needs to die.

Too many movies and games…

“Howdy,” to all of our loyal readers and listeners!

This week has been amazing for dorks such as us, with not only a good stable of movies coming out recently, but also the majesty, the Nirvana, that is E3 (that’s the Electronic Entertainment Expo, to you non-nerds). Our faces have literally melted with all the dork-centric news that’s come out this week from E3, and as such, there will be a slight change in this week’s episode.

Instead of one long podcast, as is our norm, we will host two smaller podcasts this week (which may or may not be spread over two weeks… since editing takes time, dag-nabbit). One podcast will be just about movies, and will likely be centered around the Double Feature of last weekend… Pixar’s Up and Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell. The other podcast will have no Game of the Week, since there’s just toooooo much to talk about from E3.

We hope to record both episodes sometime this weekend, which means they will be hosted right here sometime next week. And who knows? Since there has been some clammering about podcast length, if you peeps enjoy the two-episode format over the one long episode, we might just switch to that format from now on.

Keep checking back here for the podcast schedule, and make sure to listen to our shows next week! And don’t be shy re-Tweeting us! We love all the free publicity we can get.

You Shall Not Film Ep. 1 – inFAMOUS

Tags: , , , ,

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

Episode 2: Where No Podcasters Have Gone Before (a.k.a. Finals Suck)

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.

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
