That’s right, we almost managed to rid ourselves of Dave’s filthy existance, but we can’t all be winners. This week we do our best to avoid the E3 managerie because we’re right in the thick of it! This week we dig through the news for information you might have missed amongst the rubble of E3’s “leaked” news and tell it like it is.

CWV – 26 – The Podcast That Almost Wasn’t

New format, new location, one month only, this week almost didn’t happen thanks to a very unfunny bout of technical glitches in the audio program (this is why inline recording is awesome-o… NEXT WEEK HOPEFULLY!). There is a serious amount of buzz around 15m in to the podcast and it does last around 4 minutes, so stick it out if you can, but if not, it’s a quick skip (but as if you’d want to miss any of Dave’s witty zingers).

BLARGH! Go get a flu shot now before you catch this horrible DISEASE that INFECTS MY BRAIN!… and sinuses and so on (ok so maybe I’ve mixed my medical terminology there, but I AM SICK). Despite the illness that seeps from every pore of my being, Dave managed to brave the podcast and here it is in all its glory. Expect thrills and spills as we tackle the DLC hot-topic and manage to stay relevant to today’s youth.

CWV – 20 – Mmm Ramen

Ok sure, the title isn’t that creative, but dangit I had awesome ramen after the podcast so this is how it stands! In other news, the quality on this podcast is a dip from last week’s high, but I blame being ill and having been woken up from an afternoon nap by Dave to do the podcast (geez… he tells me he can’t do it till late afternoon then he goes and ruins my siesta!).

This week Dave and Andrew catch up on some emails from previous weeks and some brand spanking new ones including a review from Shane for GTA:Chinatown Wars. More of the top 100 countdown takes place and a thorough wrap of up RE5 is made just in time for Andrew to spout his undying love for a VP of Marketing (ie. he’s *really* sick this week).

LBP – What are you doing with it?

Diversion, News No Comments »

Holy dooly this game is all kinds of amazing and I don’t even have a PS3 to play it on. Goodness knows I’ve had tonnes of fun watching videos made by some of the more industrious Little Big Planet  players, I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be like to grab a copy and play these for myself.

This amazing video is just a snippet of what is out there. A genuine shoot-em-up developed on a platform-based engine. Is that too cool or what? (oh yeah, it’s a recreation of the first level in Gradius too… that’s just super nerd points)

Diversion of the day

Diversion No Comments »

This swanky piece of animation comes from the lads at Sideabitball.com and is created by synching animation with a Gameboy, also using the handheld to output the music and soundeffects required. Developed by the use of custom hardware and software, it’s amazing to see what six months of trial and error can eventually produce.
