PSNerds Podcast #4 – Bleep!

In an attempt to obtain a G-rating, the PSNerds bleep out as much nastiness as possible, still landing squarely in an X-rated dung heap. This week the PSNerds discuss Billy’s Fat Princess beta meanderings, two weeks without a PSN game release, add-on packs for Pixel Junk Eden and Magic Ball, Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazzard, Everyday Shooter, Rag Doll Kung Fu, The City of Metronome and Rock Band: Beatles. We also delve into the world of male models, sexual conquests, Billy’s new Mac, Pete from the block dealing games like crack, Japanese rape games and listener/pity mail.

The Bitter Taste of Outrun

A week-and-a-half ago North American PS3 owners got the shaft. Sega’s Outrun Online Arcade was made available for Xbox 360 and European PS3 owners. The yanks still loyal to Sony need not apply. Whether it was Microsoft at the helm of this decision or Sony just not caring enough to put this arcade drifter in American hands, US PS3 owners will just have to move on.

And don’t believe the hype of creating a UK PSN account. It’s simple to download free content that way, but, in my experience, as soon as a credit card number is involved, without a linking UK address you’re out of luck. And as of now Europe doesn’t provide the option to use a PlayStation network card. Whereas in Japan or Hong Kong, you could buy their region’s network card online to purchase content from their store while in the US.

It’s one thing for Sega to not port it to the PS3, but they did. It’s a whole other animal to exclude a downloadable game as popular as Outrun from a particular region. I don’t know about you, but I’m left with a bad taste in my mouth.

Hey Yanks! Drift this.

[Wicked Witches] EE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE-HEE!!!
Complete ‘Wicked Witches’ Episode .   Beat all the levels.  Duh.

Complete 50 Levels in a Row.   Start at the beginning of the pirates levels and this should be pretty easy for most veterans.

Score 2,000,000 points.    Should be easily pulled off while doing 50 in a row.

[Wicked Witches] Evening Exorcist
An evil witch performs dark rituals. Put an end to them by destroying her at nighttime.    This is on level 8 of the expansion.  Germeh says:  Don’t destroy the witch before you get the moon powerup.  If you do, restart.

No one should hinder true love. Find the lovers and make those around them go away.    Germeh says:  Level 3-9, you have to kill the evil trees around the witch (there are 7).  You also have to kill the little guitars they drop.   Just make sure you don’t kill the prince or princess first.  The princess is in the balcony.

Where We Podcast: Part 1 of 3

We have recently been flooded with emails wondering about our podcasting setups. Literally thousands of you interweb people have requested pictures of our humble home studios. I asked myself, “who am I to deny the good people of the virtual fanscape their most gracious gifts. Although here and now I speak for myself, but I would imagine Rich and the Animal Mort will follow. Even if they don’t, I’ll just make their parts up.

Item One: Where am I located?

So, so cold.

That’s right, as you see in the photo, I am located in barren wastes of the Canadian North. Here, there are few things a man of sport can occupy his time with. Seals, snow, the lights, these all lose their appeal in the first decade or so. Here, a man must use his thumbs and index fingers. Here, a man of game must accept who and what he is.

igloo-gs

This is a pic of my local gamestore. Yes yes, those Nazis are fucking everywhere. I would imagine there are differences with these far out stores. Here, with your trade in credits, you can not only reserve a game but reserve your biannual Tang or bottle of whale oil. Canadia isn’t a bad place to game, but we only have power for 37 minutes of each hour. Things can be rough.

Item Two:  What does your desk/space look like?

3470102306_cd464cdf63

Although the picture doesn’t exactly show it, my office is nesteled within the dried stomache of a deceased Woolly Mammoth. No worries, the smell has long since died, mostly due to our recent shipments of Febreeze. Wonderful shit people. I rock a fairly decent Pavillion with Tritton cups. There is an average Logitech 5.1 set and a PS3 to boot. There is also a stack of standard desk materials and a George mask that no desk would be complete without. My desk has been through 5 moves and 8 years of abuse. I think its only held together with gravity and my own sense of self satisfaction. It’s a tank, but is approaching death.

I hope this answers some of the curiosity you people hold. If not, I can only hope that my two associates can do better.
