So, about that message board

Hey guys,

So, this was a tough one that I had to think about for a bit, but it’s probably time to take down the message board. It’s just not best the way we communicate with each other at this point in the show’s life. We haven’t seen any new posts in a long time, and I haven’t been able to turn on registrations without a flood of spam. Social media is just so much more convenient and direct.

Plus, the message board software isn’t all that great. It’s been more of a burden than a tool over the last couple of months.

In the next couple of days, the board will silently go away — and so will the posts. In the future, we’ll move to Disquss for comments. That’s a really easy way to talk (outside of Twitter or Facebook or whatever) and there’s no crazy server strain, bulkiness, or anything.

It’ll be like a new start, which is refreshing in a way if you think about it.

95 – Pump Up The Volume

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.

94 – Sports, User Experiences, and Borderlands 2

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.

93 – Linde Knowledge Bomb

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!

92 – What’s Up, Guys?

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.

91 – Madden Payne Sports Cast

Hi! This week, Joseph and Brad discuss the latest Madden, Madden 13. Also, we talk about real football. All of this takes a total of 16 or so minutes, if you want to skip all the sports junk. After this, Joseph gives me his thoughts on LA Noire, and somehow we end up talking about Max Payne 3. Weird, right?

Anyway, you can listen below. Enjoy!

90 – I Like Nolan North. And Jetpacks.

Hey, we’re back. This week on The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show Aaron, Anthony, and I talk about video games. Specifically, we shoot the breeze about an upcoming iPad game called “Gasketball,” “Anarchy Reigns,” and touch on teaching others how to play MOBAs.

There’s some other stuff, too, but I forgot. Vaguely, I recall a “Gears of War 3″ talk, so look forward to that. Maybe. Or not.

89 – What’s Up You’re Eating Salad, Bro

On this week’s episode of The Electric Hydra Internet Radio Show, Joseph and Brad talk about all sorts of stuff. We talk lightly about “Spec Ops: The Line” and “Spelunky,” but go pretty in-depth with the latest “Mass Effect 3,” which is basically terrible. As with all our podcasts, expect some discussion of the gym, carbs, and Joseph’s house.

This episode was a short one. We had some weird audio issues, and then it just started to get too late in the afternoon. We’ll try to get a longer one to you next week. Thanks for understanding, though. You’re a rockstar!
