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!

Cheers!

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!

Cheers!

Join the gang this week as we discuss the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise and try to decypher exactly what went wrong in it’s storied 22 year history.

But first Penrod celebrates his Birthday by romancing Keith David in Saints Row IV, David spends time in League of Legends only to be berated and yelled at, Aaron has No Time To Explain because he’s been in a coma for two weeks, and Kyle has buyers remorse……and forgets to turn his mic up. Sorry for the inconsistent audio in the first half!

Apologies all around.

Join Kyle, David, and Penrod this week as we discuss the best ways to keep classic games alive whether it be HD collections, reboots, Virtual Console releases, emulation, etc.

But first we talk Warcraft 2 and it’s awesomeness, how crazy tough The Binding of Isaac can be, spoil Saints Row The Third again, the delicate nature of Worms Revolution, the awesome anti-pirating techniques of Game Dev Tycoon and other games, and Kyle longs for a racing game that could ever top Project Gotham Racing 4. Oh! And there’s some League of Legends talk too, but you already knew that didn’t you?
