It’s just Kyle and Wingman this week but that did not keep us from talking. We went almost two hours this week and half of it is due to the large amount of voicemails and questions we got. WooHoo we loved it. Before we announce the winner of our contest, we discuss the games that we have been playing this week. Once again Wingman brings Peggle into the discussion and Kyle rips on WWII games. We then discuss if Harmonix is going to run Rock Band into the ground like Activision is doing with Guitar Hero. Kyle gets excited about new DLC for Halo Wars while Wingman complains about Multiplayer RTS games and Microsoft’s lame TruSkill matching. Wingman continues his complaining in regards to paying for another Battlefield game that he already played 5 years ago while Kyle says he will pay more money to Microsoft if he can be a VIP.
This week we get back to our original goal of 1 hour (sorry to those that like the long shows). We breeze through some site announcements (you might want to listen to it this time, we got some good stuff on the way!) as well as what we have been playing. Wing gets some hard achievements in musical games, and moroniccow has a 30,000 point Halo Wars 2v2. This week we talk about Gamestop selling used copies as new, Microsoft extending the 3-year warranty to E74 issues, Madden retiring, and more. We have two more entries in the contest for 13 months of Xbox Live Gold. Do not forget to get your submission in by Thursday April 23, 2009 at 9:00 pm central. Remember, you just have to submit a tokbox with your gamertag and if you got a question, we will do our best to answer it! Until next week!
We hit it fast and hard this week by starting out with our most recent gaming experiances. Well, those of us that have played our Xbox that is. You will have to be the judge if cellphone game counts or not. Brun launches our first story with a promised discussion of MMO’s coming to Xbox which Major Spork asked about last week. Then Mark asks if its wrong to make a realistic video game about a war that is still going on. Kyle touches base with the controversial Resident Evil 5 DLC and then Rob wants to know if the rising price of Xbox Live Arcade games are worth the cost of admission. We finish off our stories with the cool news of Amazon now selling Arcade games and if we really want more retro titles like Outrun. VIP is up next and we have five voicemails via TokBox this week. So get to downloading and enjoy this weeks show. Don’t forget to get your TokBox entries in before Episode 36 to be eligilbe to win 13 months of Xbox Live Gold.

This week wingman shares his experience with the broken multiplayer in GH: Metallica, Kyle notices the gaming drought, and we have a review from one of our listeners. We have large VIP section this week and before we called it a night we announced the winner of our contest. Did I mention the new contest??? Enjoy the show!
