Christmas Connections

Smooch.

Ahhh. I love the smell of a podcast I didn’t have to edit. In the morning. Smells like, decease laziness. Or a delicious McGriddle. That’s all thanks to our new audio editor CraigReed! From now on, thumb he’ll be helping us get these shows out to you guys faster. And by that, pilule I mean until he gets angry at us and quits after like 3 months. You know like some other editors we know.

News: Nintendo Still Pretending the Boat isn’t Sinking, Notch Works on New Card Game – No One Excited, Visceral Games Works on ‘Something’, Miller and Fic Apple Nipps A-Twitter with iPad 2 Reveal, Bungie Likely Working on MMO While Shareholders and Fans Weep

Judgement: BulletStorm (360)

Also on this week’s show, we discuss sports. Which ones are fun, which ones are boring (looking at you baseball), and which ones need more GUNZ. We debate optical media, Blake again laments the loss of his beloved Dreamcast, and our listeners continue to terrify us.

If you have any feedback, send your email to feedback at best damn podcast ever dot com, call the listener line at 845-BATTLE-9, or head over to the forums.

Alright, store
this one is a classic – the summer of 2006. Before there was BIG HOT SHO, before there was Best Damn Podcast Ever, there was the Inside Mac Games Podcast. A podcast, about gaming, on the Mac. I know, right? Well hindsight is 20/20, but we still had a lot of fun. This video was a sort of promo for that show.

Here at BIG HOT SHO, we’re big fans of MANLY MEN. And at the time of this video, the most manly man I knew was THE COUGAR. He was the head electrician on a couple of film shoots I worked on. He was always telling us stories of drinking with John Woo when he worked on Hard Target and having sex with his Philippino wife he plucked out of some native village.

I snapped a photo of him with my camera phone one day and we soon figured, who better to defend Mac gamers from a sea of crap games?

Gran Turismo. Forza Motorsport. Project Gotham Racing. What do all these racing games have in common? THEY AREN’T COMPLETE ASS.

Redline. It features crap footage of the game juxtaposed with quotes taken from the developer’s website. It was never released, after Ambrosia and IMG management deemed it, “Too Much”

Another early work of Best Damn Podcast Ever in the Fall of 2006. This video actually turned out to be our most popular for quite a long time.

By the end of 1997, buy the Sega Saturn had completely failed in the United States, shop
and Japanese sales were in trouble as well. Sega knew it had to come up with a genius marketing plan to stay competitive. And there was only one man for the job: SEGATA SANSHIRO.

At the time I made this video, these clips were quite hard to come by, and I thought the only responsible thing to do would be to compile as many of them as I could and give some backstory.

Ah, clinic
nothing beats the smell of dead Nazis in the morning. They should make that an incense, page
so I can enjoy it anytime. Anyway, here’s a video review I did of Call of Duty 2 for InsideMacGames.com waaaay back in the day (fall 2006). Though it feels a bit crude to me now, it’s got some solid jokes in it. So click that little play button already. Or don’t. Who do you think you are, buster?

Alcohol – A Family Tradition

“And I made a page on the intercom, dentist
asking, ‘Is this anybody’s lettuce?’ And I did it two times, and nobody answered so I threw the lettuce out. Well come two o’clock, Bill comes up and he says, ‘Why did you throw out Tony’s lettuce?’ And I told him ‘I made a page and lettuce costs all of 99 cents, Bill, and you can get some more’”

Delightful.

My mother’s self-righteous monologue to my Aunt Bonnie would likely continue for another 30 minutes or so. I felt sorry for Bonnie, so I made sure her sacrifice w

ould not be in vain. I ducked into the kitchen and grabbed the orange juice out of the fridge. I might not be getting much in the way of presents from at the Buck Family Christmas this year, but I was sure getting my money’s worth in scr

ewdrivers.

My extended family continued to “visit” in the living room as I searched the cabinets for my cousin’s “good vodka”. Soon, I bumped into my Uncle Jimbo, pouring himself a hearty glass of straight Ciroc, a glass that still had the remnants of some quite potent eggnog. “Now Blake, you never drank when you lived with me in Nashville”, Jimbo muttered as I snatched the bottle of vodka out of his hand. “Well you know. The economy and whatnot.”

But Jimbo didn’t seem to hear me, he just smiled and wandered into living room. Perhaps he had another racist joke on tap, one that came to him in a moment of lucidity. And that’s when I had a revalation. One that I could only now spot, thanks to a fews year of experience with alcohol. Jimbo wasn’t just having a quick drink. It wasn’t just a simple sip before dinner. Jimbo had been drinking all day. And not just Jimbo.

Almost everybody at the Buck Family Christmas was completely smashed. And had been since 10 o’ clock that morning.

I took some solace in this fact, making my own alcoholic misgivings seem like a minor setback. But of course, it all made since now. The only way any of us could have a good time at this family gathering was heavy “medication”, and things had been this way ever since I was a child. How else could they all deal with the embittered attitudes, the two dogs tearing everything up, and the roaming gang of 4-year-olds demanding we open presents now instead of after dinner?

I now saw the Buck Family Christmas in a brand new light. Is every family more or less like this? But we hadn’t even opened presents yet – there was still plenty of fun to be had at this year’s party…
