I actually never played King's Quest, so I really can't speak to it.  That said, I'm always looking for an excuse to rip on Stephen when it comes to KH.

And once again, I can't say how much I love to read the support you guys give the show on the boards.  We weren't even sure if anyone was listening to the show besides the editors and Ivalice Alliance.  Glad you guys are enjoying it!

Rob, I love the series but I can usually agree with the criticisms you level at KH, despite still enjoying them. King's Quest is beyond criticism because as a series it is completely perfect. Bold statement, I know-- but it is. :)

And I've gotta second his love of you guys and your support. I have a blast doing the podcast and knowing that we have an audience is excellent.

Has anybody found a better way to listen to podcasts on the Android OS? It's a real pain in the ass to stream it with the default player.

I think I was using MixZing or the default player on the HTC phones.

Also, our Dragon Age 2 special is in the can and should be ready for you guys sometime soon.  Look forward to some ass-kicking awesomeness as I school the boys and prove the game is just fine!

Rob schools nothing. I had a mostly positive impression of the game anyway. More importantly, the power of love is heavily embedded into this podcast.

If you can convince the PC gamers, that were looking for the legacy of BG2, that DA2 is fine, you sir will be podcast master extraordinaire.

Same here.
You know, I'll probably get flamed for this, but I don't really like Bioware RPGs. I've tried ALL of them. KotOR, Baldor's gate, Mass Effect, etc, but I just plain don't like them. I don't know why either. I can tell they are quality titles and they've earned their critical acclaim, but they just don't stick with me for some reason.

I wasn't a huge fan of Bioware games for the longest time.  Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 changed my mind, but I still haven't played the old-school classics.

Not every game is for everybody, MC, but nobody can say you haven't given them a fair shake!  I'm the same way with Kubrick movies.  I've watched a bunch of his movies and hated them all, except for Dr. Strangelove, which doesn't even feel like the same guy made it as made his other movies.  And yet, everybody else in the freaking world seems to think that everything Kubrick made is amazing.

So, you know - don't feel bad if you don't like Bioware games even though lots of folks (including me) do.

I'm with you there, Tooker. Kubrick is very highly regarded  and I basically can't stand his work. Everyone's got their tastes. I think Bioware sometimes lets their concept get ahead of their gameplay. Still, I love BG, NWN, and ME :D

The only Bioware game i've played all the way through is Jade Empire.  The game was simply beautiful, amazing but yet underrated.  I heard alot of people despised that game.  I loved it.

About Kubrick's films.  AMAZING!  I own 2001 and A Clockwork Orange on Blu-Ray.  It took me two viewings to appreciate 2001: A Space Odyssey.  Not much is going on in the film but what is seen is absolutely gorgeous and especially on Bluray.

I'm not much of a Bioware fan myself, despite being a staffer here. Only games of theirs I got into were KotOR and ME2, but the rest simply didn't click with me. Objectively, they're good games, but they don't click with me. I guess I just personally enjoy the typical JRPG stuff more.

Loved 2001, hated Clockwork.
We're on one hell of a rabbit trail here...
You know, I didn't play Jade Empire. I wonder if i'd like that one. The original Neverwinter Nights was great for custom stuff, but I didn't really like the packaged game that much.
I end up playing mostly JRPGs as well for whatever reason.

It's weird to not like ALL bioware games I think. There's a decent amount of variety there, but it's not like saying "i hate all EA games."

Kubrick like: 2001, Strangelove, FMJ

Kubrick hate: Eyes Wide Shut, Shinning

Kubrick meh: Clockwork

I'm listening to ep 16 here

- - -- - - - - -

LOL @ "The spoony experiment reviewed Sewer Shark! sorry...continue"

that was funny

-------------------------------

I like the melody approach more in soundtracks.

That being said I fucking love some of the stuff from mass effect, part 1 especially
