We interview Ted Bracewell, artist for the new Free Play weekly webcomic as well as artist for the Electric Playground and creator of several Star Wars fan films. We complain that game companies believe that November is the only month to sell games, but talk wonderfully about Guitar Hero. But beware, we demonstrate upconversion lag in High Definition Televisions and why having that nice big TV might not be great for older games that require exact timing! We talk about Mario Kart DS and how...

This week we have interviews with Frozen North Productions about a new MMO that is described as "World of Warcraft Meets Mathematica." We also have an interview with NeuroSky to discuss using brainwaves as a gameplay mechanic. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came out on the Xbox Live Arcade - who liked it, who didn't? We take a quick look at MotorStorm and who Sony decided was more important in terms of multiplayer. We spoil some release dates from our buddies at Orange Lounge Radio -...

We give some early impressions on two Nintendo DS games, the first one being Drawn to Life. Then, we do a live demo of Jam Sessions, demonstrating it's strengths and weaknesses. The Tokyo Game Show was this past week, and one of the big announcements was Sony bringing rumble to the PS3. They're also pushing...

We're going to America's Videogame Expo (VGXPO)! Listen for details on how to win fabulous prizes. We played the demos for the Phantasy Star Universe Online Beta and Elite Beat Agents, and we give our thoughts on that as well as Clubhouse Games for the DS. The Wii and PS3 preorders came and went this week - did you get one? If you did get a PS3, did you try to sell it on eBay and get your auction taken down? We get an email asking if we would pay inflated prices compared to the rest of the...

We take a look at the press conferences, and mention Sony's bait-and-switch with discontinuing the price dropped PS3 that was announced last week.

First time the show's been on the air in over seven months, so bear with the technical difficulties. Take Two Interactive complies with ESRB on Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas receiving an AO rating. Jack Thompson then goes after Electronic Arts for the ability to remove the blur and change the skins via an Internet Download in The Sims 2. Are PC Games dying because of gamers who play console games like Katamari Damacy? What's up with the production snafus of games like Nanostray?

We also run down the latest in the Jack Thompson-Penny Arcade matchup, and prove that sometimes first person shooters save lives. We issue a warning about new slimline PS2's coming out of Japan, and gush about Shadow of the Colossus. There's also a few cell phone games talked about for those of us about to go on vacation where we might not take our DS or PSP.

History repeats itself as our PS3 launch system is as dead as our PS2 launch system was on October 26, 2000. But we did get the Burger King games - are they worth the $3.99 for those who aren't in the new generation? Then we turn to the Wii, which yes, did work. We discuss if we're happy or disappointed - it's a mixed bag. Some things said may anger Nintendo fanboys! Then we take calls about the Wii and the PS3, and comparing HD-DVD and Blu-Ray movies.

This episode is a combination of two seperate events that took place at the 2006 America's Videogame Expo in Philadelphia. The first 33 minutes are the All Games Radio Trivia Challenge, which tests you on obscure trivia about game audio and gaming urban legends. See if you know more than the audience! Then, starting at the 33 minute mark, is the ATARI keynote address, where Atari, Inc finally embraces the homebrew and oldschool enthusiast community and outlines their new approach. The speakers...

Do YOU know what a Blue Ocean is? Nintendo says that you WILL know what this marketing buzzword will mean after they say it a thousand times and advertise it on daytime television. The DS gets voicechat, but not during gameplay. You can also soon experience the wonderful world of download stations at a retailer near you! Halo 2 IS coming for the PC, but only for a specific OS that nobody has yet. The PS3 might be shown at the Taipei Game Show, just like it might have been seen by a website...

Hope everyone had a good holiday. This is the episode from Christmas Eve Eve - it was delayed due to the holidays and then being hit driving home the day after Christmas when I had planned to edit. (Nothing major, everyone's okay.) I can't wait for 2008 to begin. * We tested the Burnout Paradise demo's online modes with the same people on the 360 and the PS3 - and the results may come as a surprise. * EA has sent us the list of games we can choose from for our free game due to Rock Band's...

This episode rounds out our GDC coverage with an interview with Jonathan Mak of Queasy Games about one of IGF's big winners Everyday Shooter. I want to apologize for the lateness of this episode getting up - real life got in the way. Sorry! Last week, we talked a lot about the PS3 launch in the PAL territories being really terrible, but then the sales figures came in. Did they agree with us? Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 Elite, which Sony applauded and said it legitimized the PS3's strategy....

The gremlins in the Internets took down our live radio stream 8 minutes into the show, however we used Ustream as a backup and have a shortened show for you. Is Xbox Live the downfall of guilty pleasures? We discuss the messages we got for playing a Japanese RPG during the week of the Halo 3 beta. Speaking of the beta, it was late, and the Internet imploded because of it. But in South Korea, Starcraft II was finally announced, and THAT country imploded from joy. Microsoft has banned saved games...

It's a new year, and you won't believe what game made a splash at a new years party that typically has people playing FPS games all night. Sony plans to make the first big news story of the year at CES with their PS3 unveiling. We have some Xbox 360 news regarding hackers, as well as a warning to those who want to change their gamertag but still use it with their original Xbox! Infinium wants to sell their lapboard if they can get $2 million worth of investors...Yeah, right. Sony admits to the...

Why the heck do game companies tout a Tuesday release date when they really mean that's when the game is shipping, not when the game is in stores? The Movies came out, and no, it's not a complete machinima tool and never was intended to be. Strickland v. Sony got a lot less interesting, but is still a monumental case that deserves to still be looked at. The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection has some downfalls with Mario Kart DS, but will they stop people from playing? Microsoft announces what 200 games...

We had an amazing experience with our PS3 - we upgraded our firmware without leaving the couch! We also discuss the extremely large Heavenly Sword demo and wonder why developers today have bloated code - includes reminiscing about the Demoscene of old and what they could accomplish on old PC's and Amiga computers with a filesize no larger than a floppy. We talk about the Metal Gear Solid 4 gameplay trailer as well as warn people away from Wing Commander Arena. CBS Sports aired the first episode...

It's huge, it's long, and it's got one of the most annoying guest hosts in podcasting history. (It's up to you to decide which one it is!) Kropotkin, Hendrix, and Clicky the Pen (??!!) join Bobby Blackwolf in looking back at 2007 month by excruciating month, describing trends and examining things that you may have forgotten about from early in the year. But first, we do discuss the current Xbox Live downtime (and why it may not be as easy to fix as just "throwing more money at it") as...

Video Games Live is cancelled yet again, what's going wrong? While Microsoft states that the Xbox 360 launch will be gradual, Nintendo says the Revolution launch will be global, and offhandedly remark about how they think the Gamecube did. Florida wants to be the next California in terms of gaming legislation. Peter Jackson talks about his time with EA, but how much of that is really him talking? The Nintendo DS Wifi Bounty hit it's first milestone, while SpikeTV goes at it for a third time...

In this non-live interview, we have two interviews and some corrections. First, we correct some misunderstandings from last week's Pirates of the Burning Sea interview such as who the developers REALLY are as well as the release date. Then, we ask Ricardo Sanchez, VP of Content and Creative Director at Gametap, such questions as if we're going to see infamous Atari 2600 games on the service, if Bobby is really on the payroll, and who really thought having Daikatana on the service was a good...

We jump right out of the gate and talk about Super Columbine Massacre RPG and wonder why there's as much outrage about it when there are countless movies, TV documentaries, and books about the exact same subject. We then also wonder why there's so much outrage over the fact that the Wii devkits at E3 were housed in black Gamecube cases. Xbox Live claims to be the biggest provider of on-demand high definition content because of their E3: Bringing It Home campaign. We air interviews from E3's...

e video game industry was hit with a lot of political roadblocks early in the week, such as bad report cards and new federal legislation, but did win a state case declaring a video game law unconstitutional. Meanwhile, EA gets slapped with a lawsuit for putting a feature in Madden NFL 06 that everyone has thought of. We talk about the Nintendo rumors about the Revolution, and chat about the upcoming Animal Crossing: Wild World. A listener calls in to discuss the new Prince of Persia game, and...

The Xbox 360 is backwards compatible, but not fully, explains ATI . Final Fantasy XII has a release date, and a shakeup of developers . Is the Final Fantasy VII tech demo more than just a tech demo ? We're being told Madden NFL 2006 isn't that great compared to it's predecessors. Is this because there's no more competition from Visual Concepts? Rockstar's being Bullied by a group called the Peaceaholics Youth Council . Collada , a "COLLAborative Design Activity for establishing an open...

Yes, we had a show on Sunday and yes, it's posted two days late - this is not a habit, there were just some extraneous circumstances. We talk about news from the Liepzig Games Convention in Germany. Nintendo announced two new Wii titles in Germany, but here in the states we learned something interesting about third party online games. Sony annonced that the PS3 will be playable in Tokyo, and we also learned that the PS3 isn't actually in production yet. Microsoft announced that All Your Soccer...

No excuses on the lateness of this one other than just not having the consecutive time all week to edit the show the way I usually do. Next week *should* be better. We're getting ready to go to Penny Arcade Expo and already have a lot of interviews lined up with companies, and we hope to be streaming LIVE from the show floor sometime during the weekend. There was a Wii update and a new Metroid Prime 3 Preview channel. Microsoft representatives at SIGGRAPH informed us that DirectX 10.1 is coming...

* Hey, did you check out those All Games Radio gamerpics up on the Xbox Live Marketplace? They're free! * Last week, Microsoft announced Carcassone for free (for 48 hours) as well as Xbox Originals. * They also announced that Live members since 2002 will get 500 free MS Points - but you have to sign up for them. * The NPD Group has relented and will still give out hardware and software sales numbers. * And our big question of the day deals with what is a spoiler - mostly pertaining to...

Happy New Year! Star Trek Legacy is bad, even for Trekkers, but Rayman's Raving Rabbids is surprisingly fun multiplayer. How hard is it to find a PS3 these days? And if you have one, what games can you play on it? The GamePro Expo is now called the "E For All" Expo, and carries a hefty $100 price tag for what is really a glorified EBGames. Rumors have leaked about a new Xbox 360 featuring an HDMI port, and was expected to be announced at CES. (Note: This show was done before the...

Our feature this week is an audio tour of Electroplankton for the Nintendo DS. Bobby Blackwolf has a new, unexpected toy, that must be bragged about. Unfortunately a gamer commits suicide and the media and others must insult the wrong crowd to further an agenda. Luckily, the developers of Postal finally fight back. Speaking of real life, an Atlanta gaming pub, Battle and Brew, is currently closed for repairs after some real life Burnout Revenge happened on Friday the 13th. Microsoft released...

After 100 weeks straight on the air, we decided we were allowed to talk a little bit about ourselves. We give a retrospective behind the inner-workings of the show and play all of the great audio messages we received from friends of the show. GAMING CONTENT BEGINS AT 18 MINUTES IN. We learn more details about Beautiful Katamari, but you won't believe where it's going to be sold. The Church of England is going after Sony for depicting Manchester Cathedral in Resistance: Fall of Man. We read the...

We discuss what we did and didn't learn from the X05 conference in Amsterdam about the upcoming Xbox 360 launch. The DS gets Wi-fi details while the PSP gets a trojan. The Governator stops California minors from purchasing games he has starred in, while EA pays up to it's artists for missing their overtime pay. Also, the indie developer of a King's Quest...

Several organizations want to become the next E3 - but is that really what anyone wants? Gamers want the show to be open to them, and the large publishers want all the attention for themselves. On the political front, the Truth In Videogame Ratings act has been put forth to congress, and we look at what it may do with our release dates. Taxpayers in Illinois must pay over half a million dollars to pay for the unconstitutional bill that state lawmakers attempted to pass. G4 had a golden...

MTV bought Xfire for $102 Million. If you can't be at E3, you can still download videos from the Xbox Live Marketplace! Unfortunately, Oblivion will NOT be appearing on your PS3 or PSP anytime soon. EA is now finally paying their programmers. HD-DVD and Blu-Ray cannot come to an agreement. Oh, and Nintendo...

Super Paper Mario is out and brings out the anti-reading crowd. Reading is Fundamental! The final Wii browser is now out, but since shortages are going to continue for quite some time, will you be able to get it before it is no longer free? Sony is discontinuing the 20GB PS3 because there is definately NOT a shortage of those units. Guitar Hero II's...

We take a lot of great callers...

Wii Play came out this week, how much is it worth? The "Everybody Votes Channel" was silently introduced to the Wii, and there are people out there who find that it's the symbol of everything that's wrong with Nintendo. Nintendo doesn't seem against to putting Japan only games on the US Virtual Console...We'll see! Guitar Hero II will break downloadable content records on the 360...Sounds expensive. Silent Hill is coming to arcades, but wouldn't that make it, oh, NOT SILENT HILL? We...
