Super Podcast Action Committee – Episode 102 (E3 Edition)

We held an impromptu live episode of Super Podcast Action Committee to sound off about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Electronic Entertainment Expo that ended on Friday. What better day than Friday the 13th is there to do a podcast? What could possibly go wrong? Find out by watching this video of the show featuring hosts Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight.

James couldn’t make it because of technical difficulties or he would have blathered on about how Bloodborne should have been Demons Souls and how Hardline will be the poster boy (with no link to actual evidence that video games cause such things to happen) for how games teach children to kill police officers…

Sorry Humble Bundle. You May Have Gone Too Far.

Humble Origin Bundle? Ummm. I think Not.Not too long ago, I joined in with Good Old Games to question the direction the Humble Bundle has been going recently. When they started out, they were all about cross-platform play without the annoyance of DRM. Over time, they have slowly abandoned both those ideals in favor of grabbing more high profile games from much larger studies than their indie origins.

While I had continued to support them through the years, buying every cross-platform bundle and a couple non-linux bundles, I think I may have reached a breaking point with this latest bundle. While they have often done Steam-only bundles, which violates their original DRM-free ideal, at least Steam is a service that many gamers love and support. Additionally, Steam has made great strides to make Linux a viable platform for both gamers and game developers. But this recent bundle makes a mockery of even that. Read the rest of this entry »

Super Podcast Action Committee – Episode 47

Super Podcast Action CommitteeEpisode 47 of the Super Podcast Action Committee is finally available after a rocky start to the week for Andrew and EZK, who both are apparently very sick. Nevertheless, they tough it out to catch up on the last two polls (one about dying Xbox 360s and another about punishing politicians for creating unconstitutional laws) and take some time to give EA kudos for winning the Worst Company in America for a second year in a row. Will 2014 make the third time the charm? Stay tuned! Download Episode 47 now: SuperPAC Episode 47 (1 hour, 16 minutes) 69.6 MB.

Programming note: due to this week’s show being published so late in the week (we are sorry we made you wait so long!) we will not be recording an episode this coming weekend. The next episode (barring any further calamites or illnesses) will go live on Monday, April 22.
