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.

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.
