Big Red Barrelcast 4: A Big Sexy Sandwich

It was a slow news week while the gaming world went to PAX East, but Big Red Barrelcast powers through that to bring you another awesome episode! PacManPolarBear, Dave and Kev are here to talk about video games and whatever else we feel like pontificating about!

This time, they ramble on about:

  • Dave can’t drive 55
  • Borderlands 2 DLC
  • Something is invading XCOM at sometime
  • Saints Row IV: From The Crack House To The White House
  • the weekly Sim City update
  • Duck Tales is back baby!
  • EA’s CEO steps down
  • Double Fine’s new point and click ip
  • Shout outs
  • And some healthy bonus content for those lovely individuals amongst you that bought our App

We’d love to give you all some sort of incredible hug immediately followed by a polite conversation about how cool you are, but frankly we can’t afford the travel expenses. So, while we save our pennies, cents, and whatever the heck Canadians use, we’ll offer you some download links to help bide the time.

  1. Dangerous Brian

    Great Podcastage once again.


    Old game genres I want to see again? How about the old Side-Scrolling platformer or the Turn-Based RPG?

  2. spikeychris

    Great episode.

    On the topic of games/genres you wish they would remake.  I would love an escape velocity style MMO.  Updated graphics but still the same style of gameplay and weapons and size of universe except that it is multiplayer. That game was F\*\*\*ing awesome if I could play it today I would.

  3. Aurochs

    I feel positively spoiled, thanks guys! Another grand episode once again!
    And honestly, I feel like point and click adventures could actually do really well as primarily mobile/tablet based games, surely it’s a genre that lends itself to touchsceen devices rather nicely?

  4. Aurochs you may be right, point and click adventure games could be really really successful on portable devices. At the very least we know Double Fine does good work so their point and click adventure may set the new standard.

    spikeychris a bigger Escape Velocity would be pretty damn sweet.

  5. Dangerous Brian I could always go for more high quality turn based RPG’s

  6. Marauder

    Having been missing the Blu show, a great new podcast has come along. Love the interaction between the three of you, just a really enjoyable show. Keep up the good work!

  7. BilboTeabaggins

    Instead of the car crash that was The Old Republic the MMO I’d love to see a proper next gen remake of KotOR. Just because I love that game. Oh and Road Rash II from the Megadrive. Now there was a game. The music in that game is just great. And how many other games can you steal a policeman’s truncheon and then beat him off his bike with it? And the crashes were marvellous.

    I personally hope X-COM will head in the manner of the original and allow you to take the fight to the Aliens on Mars. :)

  8. stingo

    I think I must be in the small minority that likes SWTOR…

  9. Great as always gang.. I noticed the app links still go to Some Greasy site rather than brb!

  10. FireMuncher

    Why do i need to know my arithmetic to post pro this podcasts threads? Are you trying to weed out any drunken posts? Great show again guys. However Kev, I have never watched or played or been the offspring of a Pokemon. it’s just my name, like A.C. Slater…


    Not Celebi…


  11. And we know we misspoke about The Force Unleashed etc being made by Bioware. Only two games have been made by Bioware. Our apologies. Most of what we said about SWKOTOR and SWTOR still stands though.

  12. Yoshifett

    So, do you guys like Borderlands 2? tongue

    P.S. this podcast is F\*\*\*ing amazing.

    P.P.S. I’m so jealous that you have so much time to play so many games. I don’t love my family as much anymore. 

    P.P.P.S. I was going to ask about “The Walking Dead” as a point and click!

    P.P.P.P.S Kev is absolutely right about Brutal Legend being a good game once you figured out the RTS system.
