Big Red Barrelcast 18: Ima Eat Yo Babies

The Big Red Barrelcast returns to tickle your ear drums with their ramblings! On this week’s episode, Dave and Pacman are reunited with Kev, to discuss the importance of headsets and eating babies.

This time, they ramble on about:

  • Company Of Heroes 2
  • Total War: Rome 2
  • Microsoft stops charging indie devs for updates
  • Next Gen headsets
  • Sony’s firmware fix
  • Saints Row IV’s 10 minute preview
  • LOL player jailed for facebook comments
  • Shout outs
  • Some lovely bonus content for BRB podcast app owners.

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.

    Great Podcastage once again. It is agreeable to hear Kev’s voice too. Here are my mostly worthless opinions on the topics of the day.

    I gave up on the Total War Franchise after Medieval: Total War, it just became stale for me. That and I didn’t like the changes they made to Rome: Total War

    Company of Heroes 2 impresses me from what I’ve seen on the ramble, I know my PC can’t handle it though.

    Saints Row mod tools, yes. Saints Row IV, f**k yes!

    The headphones that Microsoft provided with the 360 were terrible, but at least they were as standard. As someone who doesn’t regularly play online with others they work fine for the brief time that they actually get used.

    The whole “Terrorist” League of Legends thing is just stupid. Yes, what he said was totally inappropriate, but jail time?!

    Good episode, good to know Kev hasn’t completely destroyed his liver in his week off.

    For the headset question it’s hard to deny that the combination of bundled in headsets and cross-game chat was one of the major selling points for the 360 in the early days of it’s lifespan. This just once again seems to show that Sony are making all the right moves in this coming generation, and Microsoft are just still a bit drunk on success.

    Modding for saints row will be hilarious, given the stuff that’s already possible in the game, can’t even begin to imagine the sort of things that’ll throw out.

    Great bonus content as well, I didn’t realise you guys were quite so into comics, impressed by the knowledge!

  3. StealthyJoe

    Awesome stuff and nice to hear kev. I defo like comany of heroes I was a huge fan of number one and most of its expansions even though I hated the update system, I donno it was just was weird. I am looking forward to playing it but I need new computer hardware.

    I understand the Modding thing it’s really cool to allowing people to mod but sometime I think it goes to over board, but with Saints Row I think that kind of hard lol though I am not a fan.

    As for total war I most like the Nepoleon one, as most of the other got so frustrating, with doing all the planning and coming up with a tactic setting everything up and then you let lose and there is just total carnage with Nepoleon you got to have something more, I do not know how to explain it but it just was better tactically.  

    As for the idiot making stupid jokes just maybe give him a small punishment but not jail time, I think he has sat in jail long enough as it is and wants happened to free speak and the allowence for jokes, I think you can see he was making a joke. I donno its all a little over board, plus if crazy people did not shot up anything then I think it would have been fine.

    Well keep on gaming and I look forward to hearing more.

    Ah we’re all glad to have you back Kev. Got into any Hangover-eque situations?

    First time I’ve heard of this and i’m appalled that microsoft even charged for updates in the first place! No wonder team fortress 2 on the xbox is desolate.

    Saints row and community mods seems like a match made in heaven. If the fans come up with even half the crazy content available for Skyrim and GTA4, i’ll be happy driving around steelport in my cat-mobile (not very creative am i? :p)

    On the topic of the jailed lol player, it’s a ridiculous situation he’s caught up in. I understand if the general public is in fear of the school shootings, but the law should be above that fear and dole out reasonable punishments. 8 years in prison would ruin the guy’s life! I hope some sensible heads look into the matter.
