The GamerSushi Show, Ep 20: Hype Machines

25 Feb 2011 | Posted by

Welcome to Episode 20 of the podcast, this time with bigger explosions, more sadness and lots of terrible burns. Mitch is absent for part of this cast, although Jeff is back. But worry not, for the fellowship will be re-united tonight when we record Episode 21 of the podcast, complete with drinking games.

In this podcast, we tackle a number of gaming issues, including the ridiculously good Dead Island trailer (and all they have to live up to), replaying classic video games and ten year console cycles. Nick also hits us with a mathematically stimulating game of percentages which has us battle about Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Video Games at the Smithsonian, and Bungie’s Space MMO. We also chat about Mega Ran’s Black Materia, the FFVII hip hop tribute which is seriously incredible stuff. I may post about it separately later, but for real, check it out if you love either hip hop or the FFVII soundtrack.

So, without further ado, here’s the podcast. Listen. Rate. Enjoy.

This week’s epic topics:

Intro
Dead Island Trailer
Final Fantasy VI and Stop Motion Animation
Classic Replays (Final Fantasy IV, Sega Genesis Collection)
Stacking’s Charms
Sony’s 10 Year Console
Disc Formats and Broadband Speeds

Percentages
Chances (with MvC3 and SFIV) you could ever get back into fighting games?
Chances video games will ever be viewed like other art/entertainment?
Chances the Dead Island trailer is the sole reason the game will be successful?
Chances the Bungie space MMO entices you to try one for the first time?

The big question: What do you think of the percentages for these questions? Share your thoughts on the Dead Island trailer! Go!

    Don’t forget The Matrix =D

    I’m in the exact same boat as you guys when it comes to EVE. I’m fascinated but there’s no way I can invest my time in it.

    Love the banter over the outro music lately hahaha. “Googling Canada insults”

    Another good podcast this week guys. Does anyone else notice how every time they change topics, Eddy says “Nice” then takes a deep breath? I always seem to notice that lol.

    I’ve noticed that Drell. Who knows, maybe next week when they are all podcasting under the influence it could get worse? (Its ok Eddy, we still love you :) )

    Seriously though, another awesome episode. If you guys are interested in downloading the Dead Island trailer music a link got put up on its facebook page – http://www54.zippyshare.com/v/42617420/file.html. I’ve got it and the file is safe if anyone’s worried about that.
