    Great show again chaps! I would enter the competition but seeing as I only own a 360, it would be entirely pointless. Although I believe Dan would win the total wipeout challenge by sending Tim to do it for him. After all, why have a dog and bark yourself? (sorry Tim, gamertag reference).

    Listening now. Unfortunately, the Darksiders franchise couldn’t find a buyer so Vigil was closed and its employees laid off. Here’s hoping the staff finds new jobs and that Darksiders can be resurrected.

    This is a really sad day in gaming, although platinum have shown interest in the franchise they didn’t ‘put their money where their mouth is’, to coin a phrase. At this point we can only think of what could have been.

    I haven’t listened to the episode yet, but if SMT X Fire Emblem is going to feature characters from the Persona universe than it’s about time I started caring about Fire Emblem.

    I have read though that Sony Santa Monica have shown interest in taking on some of the bods from Vigil.

    Link to article

    May not save the Darksiders franchise but hopefully their talent gets put to some good use.

    EDIT: I spoke too soon!

    New article detailing how Crytek are in fact hiring former Vigil staffers

  6. Great show guys, thanks for the competition win!

    It was surprisingly cool hearing Dan read some crap written by me.

     

    How do I go about giving you my postage details?

    I won some Dead Space stuff a long time ago but I can’t remember if I emailed somebody or sent a message on the forum or anything else…

  7. Great show chaps,

     

    Always good to hear Matt on the show. My lack of PS3 or Vita on my part kind of negates the need for a copy of WipEout HD unfortunately, though I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s entrees.

     

  8. As I already have Wipeout HD [awesome game BTW], my entry is just to warn the BRB UK games to stay away from Total Wipeout – no-one will win.

    DAMN! Just saw that eviscerated is spelled incorrectly. OK, everyone, just imagine the C is in there.

  9. zombiesauerkraut

    Thanks as well for the competition win, I’m glad my pain amuses you all. As always, it’s a pleasure hearing Matt when Jon is indisposed. Great show!

  10. shakysnake

    Did Jon went to hunt for Hagus again ?

    Thanks for the shout out, Great show as Usual 🙂

    Amazing thumb

  12. Just a thought,

    I answer the phone at work with “ahoy-hoy“, does this mean I too must pay royalties to Dan?

    Apparently so. Although, in the time of Alexander graham bell, it was the preferred greeting for the populace. Dan, the podcaster in the wrong time period. tongue

    Just send the details to me in a Private Message to me via the forums. I think that I still have some Dead Space stuff possibly unclaimed, if so I will pop that in too.

     

    Cheers for the entry, it was good happy

    I know you are just using this as an opportunity to tease Dan about his poshness and being out of touch with “common parlance” by about a century or so and I do highly commend that, but worth noting that it wasn’t the preferred greeting at the time, just Bell’s way of answering the telephone. The word “hello” was invented for the same purpose, but became the more popular version thumb

    I stand corrected sirembarrassed. Bell used ‘ahoy-hoy’ as ‘hail fellow, well met’ was the preferred greeting of the time and he believed it to be too long. I must do more research before taking the proverbial Michael out of a posh person of upper classness. Although there is nothing wrong with being posh unless you are married to a footballer and forget where you came from.

    Again sir, well played and I will now write 1000 times ‘I must try harder’ on the black board.

    I have no idea what happened in the above post but I now have to write ‘I must not break the internet’ 1000 times as well. Its not my day.

    At the risk of having my own GIF pointed back at me, I find that using the HTML editor when trying anything funky with quotes helps to stop issues like that.

    awesome podcast as usual! just wanted to say thanks for the shout out it brightened up my relatively shitty day ! ^_^

  22. Darius

    Well it’s been a long time and I’m glad nothing has changed. Keep up the good work Gents. Not listened for an age as I’ve been working out in Kenya.

    Damn the more I look at the calander on the side the more I wish I had money, I think I can go without food in exchange for crysis 3 and bioshock.

    I think if Tim, Dan and Jon went on total wipeout I would be able to sit through the ridiculous commentry by Hammond.

    The Winner would have to be Jon: Tim wouldn’t get through the qualifier as the dog in him would take control and he’d just bite down and cling on to the big red balls for half an hour, or chase all the dodge balls. Dan and Jon would get through to the sweeper however Jon’s kilt will be devistating to Dan’s morale.

     Computers hate me. Its why I work with and study people.

     I only use them to type essays and find music. I’ll stick with consoles as they only argue with red lights.

    Ah yes, the dis-association of internet forums and social media. Its why I find Facebook and the like fascinating. Here we can have a pseudonym and be somebody else for a bit, like on xbl. As long as you don’t have to look someone in the eye, its a faceless conversation and a safety net as well.

    You would love my workplace then. 99% women ranging from 18-65. Plenty to look at, but I wouldn’t be looking at their crotch. Still, we all need a hobby. thumb

    I don’t think it’ll be much of a test. A 12 hour erection would be evidence enough. Plus a participant pulling this face bigsmile then after 12 hours, this face embarrassed would be sufficient evidence

    and one for luck!thumb

     

    I believe there have been a few cases of erections lasting for longer but that was probably an overdose. Its also proven to be good for altitude sickness but I wouldn’t want to climb a mountain with a lob on. Not even for comic relief.

  36. This forum has gone to a weird place embarrassed

  37. ^This forum has always been in a weird place. Now the people are there too! I would ask how we got on to erections, but aside from that sounding dodgy, I really don’t want to know! embarrassed

    Is Tom braider the working title for Jon Braider? I’m quite looking forward to Injustice: Gods Among Us, not the game, just the special edition statue. That’s going to be parallel to my Arkham City Batman statue to act as bookends for my comic shelf.
