Everyone is back! We sat down on Thursday and recorded a long one. We started off the show by recognizing the gamers on the This Xbox Life Gamercard, then talked a little Hasbro games, Microsoft CES Keynote, Fable 2 Knothole Island, the original Xbox versus the PS3, the next Ubisoft Tom Clancy game, and finished up with a sad note about 1up.com. This weeks VIP had 4 great questions and don’t forget that Episode 25 is going to be a live show. Enjoy!
They came, they recorded, and now we listen. This week the crew had some discussion on Fable II, gaming resolutions, and the death of the Zune. They had a quick DLC update and this weeks Friday Night Life game is…..COD 4. Before they forced themselves to call it quits, Overkill sent in another dandy of question for this weeks VIP. Enjoy the fun!
Hey everyone! We hope you enjoyed your Christmas and are ready to play all those new 360 games Santa brought you. In this weeks show we discuss what games and gifts we received over the holiday. We quickly covered E3 booth babes, Zune-Xbox integration, the first Friday Night Life game has been chosen, and Kyle has some issues with Ubisoft Montreal. Before we called it a night, Wing announces his plans for PC gaming and Fair Power submitted a few questions for our VIP section. Enjoy the New Year!
This week we are missing one monroniccow, but wingman709, presar, and myself buckled down to bring you Episode 18. We start off the show announcing that we finally made it to Zune Marketplace! The gamerscore challenge continues, but without any contestants changing spots and wingman709 points out that presar and I are missing some achievements from Dash of Destruction. For the remainder of the show we discuss some music, NXE on the iphone, and our picks for the 2008 Game Awards season. Before we closed it down we hit our VIP section with comments/questions from overkill1972 and XsicX AsSaSsiN. NOTE: During the show I mentioned that the Columbus Blue Jackets (my favorite team) defeated the Dallas Stars (overkill1972’s team) in overtime. What I did not realize is that the goal was waived off and the game went into a Shootout where the Dallas Stars defeated the Jackets. I feel that I need to apologize to overkill1972. Sorry man!
We almost had a tragedy this week, but Kyle was able to recover his audio so we could have an episode 17. This week we have an update on the RB2 country song pack, rumors about Gears of War 3 and Crackdown 2, plus Kyle shares his thoughts about Home. We have a shorter VIP section this week so don’t worry about any woodchuck conversation! Enjoy!
Welcome everyone to This Xbox Life Podcast episode 16! This week we announce our winner of the Logo contest, no more physical media, advertisements in games, COD 6 (or whatever it will be called this time around), and some rumor control. Before we wrap we hit the VIP and explain just how much a Woodchuck can chuck. Sit back and enjoy the show!
Hello all and welcome to episode 15 “Nothing Rock Band”. I’m sure all of you are happy to hear that and are excited to get started. This week we cover some New Xbox Experience, This Xbox Life forums, Gears of War 2 ranking system, a little GTA IV DLC, and finish up with our VIP section. Sit back and enjoy!
Activision is hard at work deleting your song creations off GHTunes, Kyle talks about a big Fable 2 announcement, Harmonix makes big bucks, Microsoft breaks out the ban hammer, Kyle tells us how to use your PC or Laptop to connect your Xbox to Live, and then we get into some Gears of War 2 reviews. After all that, we tackle your questions and update you on our Logo contest. So check out the show and be sure to send in your Logo entries.
Welcome one and all to This Xbox Life Episode 13. This week Brun is on the field waiting in line for his copy of Gears of War 2, so that means it gives Mark, Kyle, and Rob time to shine during this hour long episode (just kidding Brun we heart you!). This week Mark starts the show off with a discussion on how Microsoft has halved the NXE, and whether or not we are still looking forward to the update on the 19th. Next, I start discussion about how Actiblizzard continues to find ways to steal their consumers wallets. And would it be a This Xbox Life episode if we did not launch into a discussion on Rock Band or Guitar Hero? NO! Thats right folks, we give you the low-down on the lastest songs hitting the marketplace this week in Rock Band, and boy are they good! We close the show with a discussion on how Rare’s latest and great Banjo game has a problem that they are not willing to fix. We then head to our V.I.P section, and continue to remind everyone of our image competition to win some very cool prizes!!! Look for the Community Conversation thread later this week to get your voice heard on our show!
We are up to a dozen shows and growing stronger each week. This episode was done in honor of the greatest band to ever live (according to Brun) and we pepper their greatest hit throughout the show all in honor of Brun. Kyle asks “What’s up with all the Zombies lately”. Mark talks about the Beatles coming to a console near you. Brun then makes the mistake of asking what he thought was a simple question which launches Mark, Kyle, and Rob on a 30 minute review of Guitar Hero World Tour and how it compares to Rock Band 2. Kyle then pokes some fun at Sony once again and then its off to the slew of VIP comments. Don’t miss our final minute of the show either as we reveal a new host……from the dead……..
