Low Score Episode 31 "I Love to Smelt"

We were going to begin this post with a phrase like, "you can't stop us, so why try?" But we must admit that Bobby's dog took care of that pretty well, as she decided to chew through a Rock Band mic. But not before we could hammer out big episode 31!

FOTSGFOTS Campbell joined us this week to help mix it up. What had we all been playing? Both Bobby and J had some new Beatles Rock Band experiences: one involving harmonizing and one involving spending lots of money on DLC. Bobby learned that you can't play multiplayer Wii Sports Resorts with only one Motion Plus adapter, Campbell learned you can't play Left 4 Dead with anyone on the Internet, and J learned that you can still rent videogames from brick and mortar stores. His discussion of Batman: Arkham Asylum makes the game sound as good as everyone else has said. Campbell expresses just how traumatic Trauma Center for the DS really is and we now know he prefers surgery with a shotgun.

We received an email from Friend of the Show (Good Friend of the Show) Erik, who wanted to further discuss character classes in MMOs and why the Jedi/Sith don't have to be the only good characters. We're still not sure of this, as 'lightsabers > any other weapon', but we were willing to hear him out.

This week's THE LIST tackled our top 5 XBLA games. And though there are a handful of seemingly obviosu choices, we were very surprised by the range of games that made it onto our and our listeners' lists.

As always, if you enjoy the show, remember to spread the word!

Low Score Episode 30 "Nip of Bourbon"

We're excited to present our first ever Skype'd in guest episode of the Low Score podcast! Kevin joins us this week via the magic of teleconference to spice things up.

What have we been playing? Kevin's put some time in with Icewind Dale II and Shadow Complex, while J and Bobby have been ODSTing.

As our resident fan of Street Fighter IV, J discusses the potentials of the recently leaked Super Street Fighter IV. J and Bobby admit they might consider playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, and all three guests talk Final Fantasy XIII.

We begin this week's discussion topic by addressing an article that came up on Gamasutra about "fair trade games." Follwing this, we talk retail models and the future of digital distribution. That's right, we can see into the future.

This week's THE LIST asks for five games that "peaked too early," meaning they were fun right at the beginning and grew stale quickly. Our answers may (or may not) surprise you!
