The lights are on
Veteran Member - Level 13
I'm playing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow today, and I keep thinking, "I don't want this to end." Though I'm only two levels into the second chapter, I've found myself captivated by this game. The environments are fascinating, the music is exhilarating, the narrative is mesmerising, the scrolls are satisfying to read, the book-style menu is interesting and the combat is invigorating (once you get the hang of it.) Despite the religious fantasy (that doesn't exactly line-up with Biblical doctrine), this game makes me feel good. I'm really enjoying the story of this man's quest to defeat evil and be reunited with his deceased wife.
Episode 14 is available now. This week, we share our listerners' ideas for racing games, briefly discuss who's won Game of the Year (so far), and to celebrate our first year (four months) of podcasting, we share our listeners' favorite things from Robot in the Corner. Break audio is taken from music by Run-DMC.
UPDATE: Well, more of a reminder... This weekend is the last recording of Robot in the Corner for the year. RITC episodes will resume on Monday, January 10, 2011. If you have an idea for a racing game that you'd like us to share on the show, please submit that before Saturday.
I have a busy week ahead, so I uploaded early this week! EDIT: I updated the post time this morning to make sure I didn't confuse anyone who's used to this going up on Monday mornings, HAHA!
UPDATE: It's confirmed! We will have our very first guest host on the next episode of Robot in the Corner. This guest is a friend of ours... we hope you enjoy his inclusion on the show. Don't get too excited, but Hist is helping me figure out the best way to have phoned-in guests on the show, so bear with us as we figure out the technical side of this future, potential inclusion to our podcast arsenal.
UPDATE: Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is the perfect time to remind all of you to submit your 3 things your thankful for in the video game industry (see below for more details.) We'll be recording this weekend (either Saturday or Sunday) so get those in ASAP if you want them shared on the show! :)
Rather than write a review for Call of Duty: Black Ops, I decided to write a blog about my favorite thing from the game... the Easter Eggs! (and my thoughts on Easter Eggs in general.)
UPDATE: Reminder - We are recording episode 10 tomorrow (Sunday, November 21.) Last chance to submit your ideas for the future of the Call of Duty series if you want us to share them on the show. Also, don't forget to vote for your favorite dodgeball team. You can submit both of these (your Call of Duty ideas and your vote for best dodgeball team) in the comments section below.
UPDATE: We are about a day and a half away from the recording of our next episode. Wes had a really great question during our "Ask the Robot" segment (in episode 7) where he asked us to pick four original video game characters for a game of dodgeball. On episode 8, we asked you to submit your picks (for a four player team of original video game characters, for a game of dodgeball.) So, last chance! PLEASE, if you want us to share your team on episode 9 (which will be available on Monday, November 15, by the way), then please comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks! :)
