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.

Hi, guys! Happy holidays.
96 – Happy Holidays (Note)
On this week’s episode of The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show, the cast and crew discuss more than a couple of games. At the top, we talk about why we don’t like “Hitman: Absolution.” Then, we do basically the same thing with “Assassin’s Creed 3.” Later, we brighten up a bit courtesy a mini-discussion about “Far Cry 2″ and our expectations for “Far Cry 3.” Also, we work in a little “Hotline Miami,” a personal favorite of all of ours.
This is one of our more game-centric shows, and the first in a long time. We hope you enjoy. Just bang the link below or hit us up on iTunes.
95 – Pump Up The Volume
Heads up: this is another episode of The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show where Joseph and I talk about sports. For about 10 minutes or so, we break down this week’s Titans vs Colts match-up. Topics include: how beastly Andrew Luck is, the Peyton Manning Face, and how crappy the AFC continues to be.
Later, we do talk about some video games. Specifically, Joseph talks about his time with “Borderlands 2″ and I try to convince Joseph that “XCOM” rocks. After this we somehow start talking about consoles, PC, next gen, and modern console user experiences. NEAT.
94 – Sports, User Experiences, and Borderlands 2
Ever wanted to listen to four dudes on a podcast talk about roguelikes, punitive design, and farts? Hope so, because that’s what we did on this week’s episode. “FTL: Faster Than Light” takes center stage, as it sparks a conversation about luck and progression across a variety of games. But we also give some time to “Dishonored” and the new “XCOM,” both of which are fantastic games, too.
I think we’re all pretty stoked about this week’s episode, so we hope you like it. Lots of video games this week, and it sounds like we’ll have a lot more games to talk about the next time we can find a time to meet. Neat!
93 – Linde Knowledge Bomb
This week’s episode of The Electric Hydra Internet Radio show is a life show, which may or may not be what you’re looking for depending on your expectations for this podcast in general. Obviously, Borderlands 2 is out. That’s a big deal for Anthony. So, I wanted to try to capture this moment in audio form and maybe give you guys a glance at what this is like. Games take years to make, man, and now his is FINALLY out, you know? It’s sort of a big deal.
Other subjects this week include Topher’s dog, gold-starring games, and a mission in BL2 that old Podtoid fans will definitely get a kick out of.
As I say at the top of this one, the next time we meet, we’ll definitely talk about some more video games. I’ve got a cool plan to make that happen, possibly sooner than later. We’ll see.
