DF# 48: We Have an Absence of Poo

We're back for another week of utter awesomeness, mostly thanks to the "poo-mans" absence. That's right, this week you're stuck with only Rob and Kush whether you like it or not! We start off the show, like every other week, with "What We've Been Playing" and I get interrupted by the phone call that never dies. We talk about Wheelman, Ninja Blade, Peggle on XBLA, Crystal Defenders, Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Killzone 2 (yet again), and plenty more.

After "What We've Been Playing", we jump into a little gaming news including the Nintendo DS breaking 100M world-wide sales, as well as Bioshock 2 speculation. We then go into "The Sausage Dump", which is our new segment dedicated to all things not related to video games. This week's Sausage Dump revolves around our thoughts on the Watchmen film and how Rob is completely wrong and smoking too much crack. We end the show with the "Question of the Week" and discuss why game-to-movie and movie-to-game adaptations rarely work (and if that trend will ever stop).

Thanks for listening to our little podcast as always and be sure to check back next week for Gus' glorious return. Below is next week's all new Question of the Week from yours truly:

 

QotW (3/19/09): "What is more important in a video game: The gameplay, or the story? Can a game still survive if it has great gameplay, but not story (and vice-versa)?" ...I look forward to hearing the community's thoughts and if you have a vocal answer, feel free to email me at: pixelatedsausage@gmail.com, or the show's direct email: distributedfailure@gmail.com

Podcast - DF #47: Killzone 2 = Greatest FPS Ever

At least that's what fellow podcaster Rob has to say on the subject of Killzone 2. The DF crew is back with returning guest, TheGamerGeek, and a bunch of nonsense to discuss. We start off the show with what we've been playing, which include: Killzone 2 (obviously), Afro Samurai, The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, WWE: Legends of WrestleMania, Watchmen: The End is Nigh, and much more.

We follow that up with some discussion on the recent used game explosion via Best Buy, Toys 'R Us, and Amazon, which leads to an interesting conversation on the good, the bad, and the ugly side of Gamestop. We finish off the show with the never-ending question that plagues this industry..."Are games art?" We give our answers, but you're just going to have to listen in order to find out.

Fun Fact about Episode 47: Southerners apparently love to crunch numbers...who knew?

I have a question about the internet. Why on Earth is my site getting so much traffic directed specifically to the Nanerpus post? Are people all cracked out on drugs, or does "Nanerpus" show up in google when hormonal 14 year old boys search for "pussy"?

DF #46: One Year in the Making

It's been one year since the first episode of Distributed Failure. We've gone through a few changes and potentially killed ourselves numerous times, but we managed to survive through 46 episodes (and a few special editions). We start off this episode like any other show, with user questions and what we've been playing.

We discuss Afro Samurai, Killzone 2, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Street Fighter IV, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, and much more. We try to find words to describe the PSN game, Noby Noby Boy, but we only end up with references to floppy cocks...and no, I don't mean chickens. I'm actually referring to those little things you use when playing badminton. After we finish up with the penis talk, we reminisce on all our good (and bad) memories of our hated podcast. We also announce the winner of our contest, but you'll have to listen to see if you're the lucky winner!

I would like to take this time to remind people that the charity drive is almost finished. You only have until this Saturday to donate any money you may be willing to spare for Child's Play. I appreciate those who have already donated, but there is room for so much more. Thanks.

...I also apologize for the lack of content in the past week. I've been rather busy and haven't had much time to update the site, not to mention the fact I wanted people to focus their attention on this charity drive. Expect more updates soon, including a few overdo reviews. I want this.

DF #45: Lost SFIV & Damned Flower

We have another new episode of Distributed Failure for you, last one before the big 1-year anniversary! Since I have recently become the recipient of a Brit's sleep cycle, I was not able to attend this showing and thus, I have no idea what happened during this week's show. I can tell you that ex-DF original Phil made a special appearance this week, along with special first-time guest, TheGamerGeek.

Apparently they talk about Flower, The Lost and the Damned, Loco Roco 2, LIT, Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Burnout Paradise, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, and Street Fighter IV. They then talk about the first games they ever completed without the help of a friend, guide, or cheat code. There is also a chance for one lucky listener to win a game of their choice...if you know the secret Phrase (I don't even know it), send it to distributedfailure@gmail.com for a chance to win a game of your choice.


I wasn't there this week (obviously), but expect some write-ups on Flower, The Lost & the Damned, and Sonic's Ultimate Game Collection in the next few days. Here's a sneak peak: 2 of the 3 are amazing...the one that isn't amazing is the one that relates to GTAIV.

DF #44: Rob Hates Killzone 2

We are back and here to please you (yes, YOU!). Well, Gus really only wants to please Jake Gyllenhaal so you'll have to settle for Rob and moi. After a break due to Rob's failings (how appropriate eh?) we finally have a brand new show for all you little boys and girls out there. We start with a ridiculously, random off-topic intro that inevitably ends in vaginal references and then moves on to "What we've been playing".

We talk about Valkyria Chronicles, Need for Speed: Carbon, Quake Live, Peggle, and some demos including: Tom Clancy's HAWX, Resident Evil 5, MLB 09: The Show, Minesweeper Flags and more. We also talk about Killzone 2, which leads to much disagreement and controversy. After all is said and done, we drop some gaming news (L4D DLC and the Red Dead Redemption announcement) and then Gus drops a massive deuce. Don't forget about this month's CHARITY DRIVE for CHILD'S PLAY!

Question of the week: "What is the first game you beat without the use of a guide, cheats, or the help of a friend?"
