PixelCast 18 – Pixelsucker
The PixelHunt team set a new standard in profanity, as pixels are spoken of being sucked left, right, and center. Games also find there way in, of course and… dammit! The Lakers just got one up over the Celtics (edit: LA ended up losing, so Tim’s happy again). Click on through for the audio treat.
Red Dead Redemption has invaded the world, and Dylan has become convinced that he’s a cowboy. Ken, on the other hand, really is a cowboy. He even owns his own saloon. It’s crazy. He’s even hired a piano guy and some dancing girls in feather boas.
Tim, meanwhile, gets more caught up with a talking dog and rabbit, and comes clean with the admission that he was terrified of the sci-fi comedy spoof, Space Quest. Living in the past? Maybe – there’s certainly plenty of talk of emotional response, and no lack of behind-the-curtain nostalgia. Also, we answer some of your questions, and somehow keep from going too greatly over time.
