And don’t let Alex and Sam’s radio voices deter you from listening to the rest of the podcast. They only keep it up for a second.
In our short news segment for Episode 125, the boys cover:
Then Alex pops some painkillers, chases it down with some Jim Beam, and stumbles through a rambling diatribe about his first experiences in Max Payne 3. He dives and shoots at the same time, rolls, takes cover, reloads, and starts explaining how similar body counts in Max Payne, Stranglehold and Spec Ops: The Line give him completely different experiences. Then he steeps in the madness of war while listening to 70s rock and roll and wonders where the hell Sam has been that he hasn’t experienced Apocalypse Now.
For Sam’s part, it’s all about his continuing fascination with Kingdoms of Amalur: Rhode Island’s Sorrow. He then walks to the top of an ancient hidden jungle ziggurat, slays a dragon and proclaims to the world as the sun rises that this, right now, right at this very second, is the Golden Age of Fantasy Role Playing Video Games. Unfortunately, the only person listening at the time of his bold proclamation is his co-host, whose apathy towards fantasy role playing games knows no bounds.
