It’s been a trip.
Awhile back, a group of dudes kinda reinvigorated an old podcast. Then, as their lives and careers changed and evolved, they made a new podcast with a new name on a different site. It was so much fun, too! But after years of content, it became too hard to do. It just wouldn’t be the same anyway, right?
Hey, guys. It’s been awhile, and you’ve probably already assumed this was happening, but we’re turning the page on this podcast and chapters in our lives. Thanks for the support and praise and criticism over the years. It was, and still is, appreciated. You guys are amazing. And, at points, you were our rock.
Thanks! Stay cool.
On this week’s episode, Joseph talks about why he wants a new truck. Also, he talks about video games with Brad. Topics include: Grand Theft Auto V and what it has to offer that other video games don’t, how hilarious The Stanley Parable is, Fez, and how old Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is. Football talk follows all that, so feel free to turn it off there if that’s not your cup of tea.
Nice Alarm Bro
[Also, obligatory plug: Brad has a new podcast with Uber Entertainment. It's called Uber Unplugged and it's available now on iTunes.]
Hi! It’s been awhile! At the top of the show, Joseph and I talk about my new job. Also, we dig into the console version of Diablo 3 and how it’s informing the PC version of the game. Later, we talk about GTA V, Gone Home, and a couple of other notable titles. Joseph played some video games, guys! Who knew he did that!?
Anyway, thanks for sticking with us. Just hit the link below for the direct download, if that’s how you roll.
Diablo 3, Gone Home, GTA V And More
Hey, here’s another episode of The Electric Hydra! In this one, Joseph joins me to talk about what makes Payday 2 great. Also, Joseph reveals his new addiction to multiplayer. Apparently, my man has been spending a lot of time in Gears of War: Judgement and Super Street Fighter IV. After that, I attempt to talk about Rogue Legacy and, naturally, we manage to talk some football. Hit the link below if you’d like to listen!
Payday 2, Gears of War: Judgement, And Football
What is up? Another episode of The Electric Hydra. That’s what’s up. I’m really good at jokes. Anyway, on this episode Joseph and I talk about E3 and the stuff that made the biggest impression on us. Also, somehow, we end up talking about our formative Oddworld experiences. Other topics include: DRM, how Microsoft’s betting on the next, next-generation by dipping its toes into the water now, and Sony’s interesting PS4 conference.

Spinal, E3, And Other Stuff
Hi! It’s been awhile and a lot of the usual cast was busy, but we’ve got another episode of The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show ready for your earhole consumption. Joseph and I talk a lot about what makes League of Legends pretty rad and what makes StarCraft 2 a bit of a bummer. Joseph notes that the new Army of Two is terrible and I think we end up gabbing about some new iOS stuff, including the recent Gemini Rue release. Also, football.

League of Legends And Football
Hi all! This week, Anthony, Aaron, and Joseph join me in a bunch of discussions about video games. Like, for real. At the top, we talk about competitive StarCraft II and I fumble around while trying to explain what makes it appealing to me. We also touch on the campaign, which apparently is pretty good. Later, Joseph discusses the latest Gears of War fresh off ‘bargo and then I ask the crew what’s up with Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance (or whatever it’s called.)
This was a really fun episode to dude and I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did. We’ll be back with you after GDC and PAX East, surely with some stories from those events. Keep it real, guys.
Gears of Metal Trouble In Heart Of the Swarm
NOTE: I’m super sick, so I sounded like garbage on the podcast. Also, my volume was turned way up. My bad. Still listenable and all, but I realize this wasn’t the greatest sounding episode we’ve ever put out. (I say this as if there was a bar; haha.)
Ever wondered about what Brad and Joseph were doing away from video games this lately? Yes? Great! Because that’s what we talk about this week at the top of the show. Later, we do manage to dive into some actual video game stuff. Dead Space 3 and the PlayStation 4 probably take up the most time, but somehow we managed to sneak in mentions of how terrible the latest Medal of Honor is and how great two upcoming iOS titles are. Enjoy!
The Life Show
This week a discussion about Ni No Kuni launches into a 50-minute episode about JRPGs in general. Weird, right? We talk about the parts we love, the parts we hate, and the things we’d like to see from JRPGs moving forward. We also specifically discuss Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy IX, Lost Odyssey, and Final Fantasy XIII. We name-drop a few more as the conversation takes various twists and turns. Enjoy!
The JRPG Show
Joseph and I got together to do a little podcast. We ended up talking about a lot of sports and, maybe more surprisingly, an iOS game. I also kinda gushed about how much I’m into Binary Domain and The Darkness 2. Joseph also talks a little bit about his “problem” with video game domination. Dude plays the same game forever until he completely masters all of its systems and sees everything.
