  • Jamie Gore and Chris Karpyszyn
  • Thanks to Chris’s mic doing its best Barry White impression and other assorted wackiness, the podcast is a bit late.
  • Lots of news though. Although none of it seems worthwhile. The moral of the story was GDC was a waste of everyone’s time.
  • Let me put it this way…I was holding back when I said how upset I was about the PSN crap that has been coming out for the PSP. I’m still anticipating angry e-mails from ticked off Sony fanboys.

  • Jamie Gore and Roberto Panetta (of OKConsole.com)
  • HUGE PODCAST! We talk about the big news coming out of the Nintendo Media Summit today. Looks like it will be a massive spring for Mario & Co.
  • First round of Hall of Fame results. Why wasn’t Ms. Pac-Man inducted? That may be one for Unsolved Mysteries.
  • Is Sony even trying anymore?
  • All our sales data comes from www.vgchartz.com
  • I’ve also included lists of the numbers from the previous week and the game releases from the previous week because they were not posted here last week.

The written stuff that was supposed to go up yesterday will only go up on Wednesday now. The problem is the mid-term exam I’m having today. I need to make sure I do well on the exam so that’s why I’ve been spending so much time planning for it. I’m a little more nervous about it than usual (only because it carries a high weight for the final mark).

So I’ve decided to put up the podcast that Chris and I recorded last week. I didn’t want it to go to waste and I think we did a really good job with it. It’s 80 minutes of really interesting stuff within the world of video games. If you enjoy our podcasts, this is one that you don’t want to miss. I would have liked to have put the podcast up after my review of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and the HOF induction of Q*Bert were posted but since that isn’t going to happen until Wednesday, I didn’t want such a good podcast to rot on my hard drive.

Please note that the next video game podcast will be on Friday instead of Wednesday because of my crazy school schedule. I still think there should be a rule about exams before the week long study break (McGill actually calls it “Reading Week”). After the break, I only have one test before finals. It seems a bit absurd to me. Thank goodness it’s my last year.
