85 – Not ‘Max Payne’-Cast

This week’s episode of The Electric Hydra was a rushed, impromptu recording of the show. We do still intend to do our “Max Payne” casts, but I thought it’d be cool if we did a little something for all of you in the meanwhile since it’s been so long. Topics of discussion for this week’s episode include “Fez,” “Fat Sherlock Holmes,” and “Grand Theft Auto 3.” This is by far one of our “funnier” ‘casts despite its length, so enjoy!

Game Club: ‘Max Payne,’ Also Answer To The Donation Question

So me and the boys — read: Aaron, Anthony, and Joseph — discussed what we wanted to do next on The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show. To my surprise, everyone seemed keen on doing another Game Club. The question then became, what game or series? The first thing that popped into my mind was “Max Payne,” Remedy and now Rockstar Games’ gritty shooter franchise. It’s rich in narrative, has some great moments, and has the potential to make a lot of awesome discussion. Even though we’ve received a tepid response so far on the message board about this, I’d like to announce that we are indeed going to Game Club all three “Max Payne” games starting with “Max Payne” in the near future.

We’ll do this across, potentially, three podcasts, two of which should hit later this month if our schedules line up. Our first podcast will cover the entirety of “Max Payne” and the second and third will cover “Max Payne 2″ and “Max Payne 3.” I expect a slight delay between our “Max Payne 2″ and “Max Payne 3″ podcasts, but we’ll obviously keep you on the up and up as we go.

84 – ‘Mass Effect’ Diaries Part 6

On this week’s The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show, special guests Anthony and Aaron help Joseph and I break down the end of “Mass Effect 3.” Topics include what we think of the ending’s contrivance, its surprise character, and other various nuts and bolts. We also dive into a light character discussion and do comment on some of the moaning on the Internet about how BioWare wrapped up its amazing sci-fi RPG series.

This is our last “Mass Effect” diary thing and we really appreciate all of you who joined us. This was one of the funnest things we’ve ever done for Internet radio, and I think it was totally worth all the time and effort. Here’s to another “Game Club” in the potential future. Enjoy!
