UPDATE: I forgot to mention this when we recorded episode 6, but we'll be doing our first Q&A sement on the next episode (7). If you have a question for us, please submit it in the comments section below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: I bought Super Meat Boy - wow, this game is fun! It has warp zones, a light & dark world, 8-bit style levels, 16-bit style levels, characters you unlock by finding, characters you unlock by purchasing (with the bandages you collect) and more. It hasn't been BRUTALLY challenging (yet.) There was a few times that I got stuck and died several times in a row, but the comical "all attempts replaying at the same time" replay at the end of each level completed helped alleviate the tension.
UPDATE: GIO member, Hist has shared the link to Robot in the Corner several times on his Twitter page. That got me thinking - Robot in the Corner should have a Twitter page!
Episode 4 is available now. This week, we talk about the recently announced Halo movie, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, the iPhone 4, our favorite podcasts and more.
Note: This is my very first GIO blog post, from December 2009. It's been unviewable for a very long time (error page when you click the link), so I deleted and reposted it.
UPDATE: I checked our stats last night, and in three weeks, our feed has received exactly 1,000 hits and 100 subscribers! Thanks again for your feedback and support - the GIO community has definitely helped us get this show off the ground. I'd like to give a special thanks to everyday blogger, Saint, for mentioning our podcast in his posts - it means a lot. Also, thanks to Hist for sharing the link to our feed on Twitter.
Episode 2 is available now. This week, we discuss the fall TV premiers, Hulu Plus, the newest Mass Effect 2 DLC, Kinect, True Achievements and more.
UPDATE: The first episode of the Robot in the Corner podcast is available now! It's not showing up in the iTunes search results (yet), so for now, here is the direct URL for the podcast:
Confession: Last night, I spent several hours online researching, "How to remove games from my gamerscore."
In the latest edition of Gamer Gorilla Radio, Andy McNamara asks, "Are gamers fatigued about the video game violence topic?" I'd say we're fatigued by that topic and several others. Personally, I rarely do topical blog posts. Why? Because nearly every major topic has been discussed eight ways to Sunday. Many people complain about the lack of quality activity here at GIO, but maybe there is just nothing new to talk about. Think about it...
I'm excited for Capcom and Namco's partnership to bring us Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter, but I'm a bit concerned...
