Critical Strike

 We're back, but are we REALLY back? Yes! This just happens to be our final podcast under the name Playgasm, we're moving on to our new name Critical Strike.

This episode we all finally got back together to talk about our top five games of 2007, the good the bad and the Kyle of 2007 and of course the video game music challenge.

The title says it all, thats ALL you need to know. Keith is indeed, back! He came out of his two week retirement just to tell us how much he loathed Pokemon and several other over hyped games in this episodes top 5. Those who love Kyle, well you'll be sad as he decided to do other things in his life besides sit here and record this with us.

If you would like to submit a answer to the video game music challenge, please head over to our forum and private message Josh. Please give us a digg as well!

Kyle and I return this week, Keith has been over worked so he was sleeping. Much talk of Orange Box, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and the lack of Super Smash Bros: Brawl this year, what more can you ask for?

Of course, we weren't going to be lazy this week so the video game music challenge returns along side of this weeks top 5 discussion.

Please give us a digg and enjoy.

This is a short episode, Kyle and I wanted to get something out there since we've all been fairly busy. Sorry everyone who is sick of hearing about Halo 3, we did it just a bit. Besides a few mentions though, you'll be glad to know there is just 4 whole minutes of actual game play discussion.

This episode we dicussed what we've been doing, obviously. The top 5 we decided to go with this week was the most innovative things that we feel made gaming better. Unfortunately no video game music challenge this week as I just didn't really feel like doing one, don't like it? Handle it!

And please give us a digg, or I'm sending Kyle to your house!

This episode, Kyle tends to tell us a bit more about himself that, honestly we didn't really want to know. Since it was a slow news week we decided to discuss our top five games we never finished but someday hope to actually complete.

Of course we also had the video game music challenge, if you'd like to give us your answer for that please go over to our forums, register and message Josh with your answer. For our final topic we decided to go back and discuss why we haven't finished a lot of games or why we have a backlog of games in general.

If you like the cast, please head over and give us a digg, Kyle would appreciate it!

Josh made me host this one, and edit it, and release it.  Yep, I do it all on this episode, that is except sound like I know anything about video games or video game controllers.  Hell, Josh was even a little shocked that I knew something about the Sega Dreamcast at one point!

So check out Episode 8 below, give it a listen, and if you like what you hear or have even the tiniest shred of pity in your cold dark hearts, give us a Digg to make Josh smile.

In this episode we divulge our  top 5 favorite video game controllers.  We do the video game music challenge (during which Josh insults his co-workers), then we talk about game franchises of yesteryear consoles that we'd either like to see on next-gen consoles or that we'd rather not see on next-gen consoles.

Enough blather from me.  Enjoy the podcast.

Madden week podcast edition! Of course, only one of us is actually playing Madden but he clearly isn't a true gamer. This is your typical episode where we cover our top five gaming podcasts, what we've been up to since the last episode, the video game music challenge. For our discussion the topic this week was based off a article on GamesRadar about game franchises evolving or revolutionizing.

If you would like to submit your answer for the video game music challenge then head over to our forums, register and message Josh with your answer. 

And if you would, please digg the Playgasm Podcast, we'd appreciate it.

Thank you and enjoy.

Yeah, we finally settled down and recorded a new episode. Of course it was just Nick and myself at 2am and what was it like? It gives you a general idea that we need Keith to keep us in line.

In this episode we discussed our top 5 console games of all time, the video game music challange, pre-E3 rumors, what we would like to see or what we expect from each company and the show itself.

If you'd like to guess the Video Game Music Challange please head over to our forums and message your answer to me (Josh).

Yeah, we released another one so quickly. But it's a new week, we had to! Anywho, please enjoy episode 2 of the Playgasm podcast. We enjoyed recording it, but probably a little too much. (I blame Nick). For the show notes to this episode you can go here.

There probably won't be a new episode for the next couple of weeks, but we hope to do something.

We're very pleased to announce the release of the first Playgasm Podcast episode. Of course, it's a tad bit old as it was recorded last Saturday, but we were busy.
