  1. BDPE Episode 89

    July 29, 2011 by BLAKEBUCK

    Sure, pills everybody knows internet funnyman Blake Buck. Professional podcaster, cheap standup comedian, unhealthy and top pick of his graduating class for ‘Most Likely to Become and Alcoholic’. But few people know of his forerunner, the legendary Ben Buck.

    In many ways, Ben Buck is like the beta version of Blake Buck.  While similar at first glance, he’s not quite as quick, doesn’t have as many features, and is definitely more bulky. But then again, Blake is more often covered in bugs.  At the very least, Ben Buck makes a fine substitute for William Miller this week, who is still trapped in a box of Captain Crunch.

    Also this week, Justin Fic and Blake Buck reminisce on some of their favorite classic arcade games, and discuss how perhaps games today have lost touch with the importance of controls and innovation that defined the arcade era.

    News: Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Announced, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Announced, Darkness 2 Delayed till 2012, Ex-Irrational Games forms new indie studio, Ubisoft Embraces Used Game Pay Wall, Goldeneye 007 Coming PS3 and 360

    Tapes: The Barcade / Mr. Do (Arcade), Galaga Legions DX (XBLA), Fry’s (not actually a tape) / Alone in the Dark Inferno (PS3)

    Sometimes, visit web things just don’t work like their supposed to.  Like signing up for Playstation Network and 6 months later somebody’s using your credit card to buy  two hundred copies of the movie Hackers.  Or worse.  Like doing a podcast with an incompetent cohost who fails to record his audio properly.

    So, discount there’s no episode 77.  Gone forever.

    Sometimes, health
    things get busted.  RSS feeds, show notes, podcasts, etc.  It happens.  Sometimes even the BDPE hosts themselves get busted – like Justin Fic getting fired or Blake Buck getting evicted.  These things happen, and can have a dire effect on the podcast postings.

    But, everything appears to be running smoothly now!  Though Episode 85 is forever lost to the ether, 86 is here, and 87 is right around the corner.

    Here at BDPE, illness we love videogames.  I mean, approved we do a weekly podcast about them – it’s right up there with nipple slips.  But if there’s one thing we love almost as much as videogames, it’s taking a big steamy dump on the crappy ones.  Sorry Duke Nukem, but this week it’s your turn.

    June 13, 2011 by BLAKEBUCK

    When you really think about it, ampoule the gaming news industry isn’t so different from having great sex.  Other than the fact that most gamers have never had sex (see our forums).

    The weeks leading up to a big conference like E3 filled with anticipation – publishers intentionally withholding the pleasure of new announcements.  The days before E3 we are tormented with sneak peeks and racing thoughts.  Finally it arrives in a single glorious moment of pleasure, prostate a week of news exceeding your wildest salacious fantasies.

    Then you spend the rest of the week apologizing and promising next time it’ll be much better.

    Yes, buy information pills it’s that magical time of year: E3.  When we get so much video game coverage that all but the biggest of news stories simply slip through your fingers.  It almost seems kinda wasteful for developers and publishers to even try to generate buzz unless they spend exorbitant amounts of money.  But don’t worry about that, our game is emblazoned across this booth babe’s chest and several dozen plasma TV!  Ah, capitalism.

    May 16, 2011 by BLAKEBUCK

    This week’s show is a bit strange.  Somehow with only Buck, generic Fic, surgeon and a few crumbs of news, BDPE flies off into some bizarre tangents which actually prove more interesting then your average show.  By the time we finished news, we were nearly an hour and twenty minutes in.

    Kinda like the podcast version of staying up late reading wikipedia.  You’re reading about John Wayne Gacy, twenty minutes later you’re on Chuck Palahniuk, then somehow it’s it’s 4 am and you’re watching this:  ?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTXO7KGHtjI
