This week we celebrate our first episode (Shhhh! Those other ones don’t count!) and talk more RAGE, Half-Life 2, Doom 3, League of Legends, and that whole Zoe Quinn thing. also; WHY THE HELL DID I BUY DUKE NUKEM FOREVER!?!? WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!
Join the Kyles this week as we talk more DOOM, kickflips in OlliOlli, how to pronounce Anachronox, Google’s cool billion spent on twitch, and of course Risk of Rain. All this and MORE!!!!!
State of the Podcast Things are coming along nicely. Kyle and I have loosened up a little bit and are starting to have fun with everything (not bad for the third show!). Video quality is still lacking though. If this persist, we have decided that we will either find a better video format or go to strictly audio. What that will mean for interacting with us live i don’t know but we’ll see. Also because this is recorded live, between 39:00 and 45:00 we take a break so that I can tend to an upset child. if only I had a technical difficulties slide i could throw in there……
On the Horizon
We record next week so be on the lookout if you’d like to join in and chat. Kyle and I plan to record a video of some Risk of Rain. and release it soon. Overall, I’d say maybe a few more of these “Zero(point)” episodes and we’ll be ready to go full blown live. Hope you’re enjoying them because I know we sure are!
This week we discuss old school FPS’s, Risk of Rain again, and DOOMBOTS!!!! (whatever those are) Plus we dive deep into the Yogsventure! debacle and Doom….BOTS!!!!
What’s the state of the podcast? Things are still ramping up! We’ve bought some new equipment to sound better but unfortunately our internet connection was not the greatest this week. Bummer. Video wise you’ll notice it’s like watching a slide show. Audio dips more often than wanted and Kyle M’s mic gain was a little high. But that’s why this is Episode Zero(point)One and not Episode One. Technical issues aside this is a beefy episode that’s packed full of conversation. So sit back, enjoy, and let us know what you think!
What’s on the horizon?
We plan to record again this Sunday so if you want to watch us live and chat check Google+ or my Twitter to find out when we will record. Kyle and I are working diligently to improve the show by trimming the fat (conversations that drag on) and tweaking the format so that there is less awkward silences and more coherent and meaningful conversations. As far as quality, I unfortunately can’t make my connection any better during high bandwidth times but if doing this over Google Hangouts on Air becomes too troublesome, I guarantee we’ll find a better way to do this. That aside I hope you’re enjoying the show and we can’t wait to give you more!
Tonight we test our new podcast over Google Hangouts, talk early access, pre-order bonuses, Rise of the Triad, Risk of Rain, You Don’t Know Jack, and much more!!
What is Extra Lives? Extra Lives is an all new video game podcast brought to you by Kyle McCauley and Kyle Penrod (formally of The Backwards Compatible Podcast) where we get down to the nitty gritty and absolute fun that is the wonderful world of games.
Why Episode Zero?
Great question anonymous stranger! While we’re frothing at the mouth to start this podcast, we don’t quite have everything we need just yet. So we figured why not release a half baked product in it’s place until we are ready! When everything is said and done we’ll be recording every week (probably Saturday evenings) via Google Hangouts On Air and releasing both a video version (similar to the one above) and a tired and true audio version of the podcast via our website (forthcoming) and of course at the ol’ CarpeGM.net because we love those guys! Until then feel free to join us in the chat while live on the air (via Google+) every week and let us know what you think!
With Aaron back from assignment, we talk ever changing items in Legend of Dungeon, replaying the entire Tomb Raider series, contemplate radical strategies in League of Legends, point and clicking in Broken Age, ghost whales in Paranautical Activity, and what the hell is going on at Nintendo? All this and much more on this week’s episode!
With Aaron out on assignment this week; Kyle, David, and Penrod talk Snowmageddon, gun realism in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, our haul from the 2013 Steam Holiday Sale, cloud based gaming with Playstation Now, Valve’s master plan for the Steam Machines, and enlist the Overblood Super Replay Group for help deciding our Game of the Year 2013 award. All this and more in this week’s edition!
Join the Millennium Falcon of podcast this week as we look forward to the holidays, laugh at Borderlands 2, cry at Bioshock Infinitie, embrace the calamity of Just Cause 2, bring back the League of Legends hour, and try to figure out what went wrong with Youtube! Plus you are all now honorary members of the Penrod family. One of us! One of us!
The boys are back in town and the clown show is off hiatus as the gang regroups after a month long silence. Fear not! We kick things back into gear with another League of Legends hour including talk on new character, Jinx, and test Penrod on his knowledge of the lore of LOL. We also try to make sense of the convoluted Devil May Cry timeline, discuss the hyper-realistic horse controls in Shadows of the Colossus, and aggravating PvP matches in Demon’s Souls. And finally we spend the last half of the podcast gushing over 2011′s game of the year, Dark Souls. PREPARE TO DIE!
