Please Do Not Turn Off Your Console (general)

You've made it through another week, so we're rewarding you with yet another episode of what is probably not your favorite video games podcast, but maybe it's cracked your top ten--go on, slot us in at number 7, we've earned it.

It was a busy week, so we don't spend much time mucking about--there's too many cooks and too much goddamn news to discuss, not the least of which is the surprise appearance of a new Alone in the Dark game, Blizzard's new thing, hitting peak Dark Souls, some more talk about mobile gaming, and how Atari does business now. Also, some more talk about Crypt of the Necrodancer, because that game is great and you should be playing it.

Also, this time Aaron's computer had a hiccup, so you get to listen to Paul talk to himself for a few seconds. We like to mix things up here to keep you on your toes.

Opening music is Back to the Light by Jun Fukuda off of Killer 7. Closing music is Rave On, by Masafumu Takada, also off of Killer 7.

Oh listeners, dear sweet listeners, bringing you this tasty podcast candy the day after Halloween took everything we had. Paul's computer was possessed by ghosts, so an old-fashioned exorcism had to take place--but not before we lost the first twelve minutes and had to re-do them. The exorcism took place as we recorded, which is why Aaron is just kind of talking to himself for a while there, responding to an unheard voice. Or maybe he's just gone off the deep end. That's a very real possibility.

Anyway, we talk about Crypt of the Necrodancer, another shitty PC port of a Japanese console game, Sunset Overdrive, Wolfe: The Red Hood Chronicles, and some other shit. Also, there's a video up on our YouTube channel you should look at. You can find that over here.

We were gone for a week there, but we've come back because your sobs convinced us we should. So what have we been doing with ourselves? Well, let's see... not much as it turns out. There's a little rust, but we'll hit our stride again soon.

Persona 4 gets some discussion time, as does The World Ends With You and Aaron tries to convince himself that going back to portable gaming is not a complete waste of time. Also, Paul informs Aaron that 80 Days is an iPhone-only game but Republique isn't.

Welcome to episode four, meaning we've been doing this for a whole fucking month! How about THAT, huh? We've come so far...

On the episode, we talk about how the internet needs to get its shit together, more on Shadow of Mordor, a brief discussion of Forza and racing games in general, the Alien movies (did you know Alien 3 is actually pretty good? Neither did I!), and of course a quick run-through of news (including some hot takes on RESOLUTION). Everything you are quickly coming to expect/dread from the internet's hottest new podcast about video games! And also this podcast!

Against all odds, week three happens. AIN'T NO GETTING OFF THIS TRAIN WE'RE ON.

We discuss Shadow of Mordor for a really long time, touch on that old N64 (shout out to all the Hybrid Heaven fans in the audience), more discussion of the Steam Curation page. Also, we talk about that gum you like coming back in style, and holy shit, have there been two Homestar Runner episodes in 2014? Someone wake me up I must be dreaming.

Oh, and Aaron talks about his new vacuum cleaner for a couple minutes in there. No, I don't know why either.

This is now a Killer 7 music podcast, which is all part of the plan. Oh yes.  Subscribe to us on iTunes, or leave a review and tell us how awful this show's getting now that we're up to three whole episodes.

So we're a weekly podcast, and this is WEEK TWO. How about that, eh? Brought to you at a much higher bitrate than last week, which should mean that our voices sound more sonorous and arousing.

On the docket: Aaron's been playing Divinity: Original Sin, Paul has had terrible luck in Deadly Premonition, and nobody--I mean nobody--is particularly fond of the new Steam storefront. Also, we talked some more about Destiny because that is all anyone ever fucking talks about, and hey, how about that iTunes podcast functionality, huh?

Opening music is Another Winter off Anamanaguchi's Scott Pilgrim Vs the World soundtrack. Closing music is Rave On, from Masafumi Takada's Killer 7.

Another goddamn podcast about video games starts, and the brothers Poppleton are here to guide you through this whole mess. The mess includes some obligatory talk about Destiny, but mostly you should listen to this so we can tell you how badly you need to own D4. That sounds about right.
