Formative Video Game Experiences

This week we talk about the formative video game experience we had as kids, tell you why it is okay to blow into a video game cartridge but never a pregnant lady’s vagina, explain that Nintendo Power was basically console wars propaganda, share our lingering fears of some one erasing our save files, and realize we sold our childhood so we could buy the next generation of video games.

Episode Five

MMOs: A Massive Waste of Time or a Multiplayer Social Experiment?

Massively multiplayer online video games: MMOs for the initiated, that stupid thing my significant other won’t stop playing to everyone else. They’re the biggest thing to hit video games in the last decade and the Unreliable Sources staff is here to give you a bunch of completely pointless information about them.

In this episode we mock Gamestop employees, ponder if gold farmers are really people, discover why one of our hosts flunked out of college, talk about an Australian losing his virginity and learn that marriage is the most epic loot of all.

Episode One

2013 E3 Wrap-Up, Part One – Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo

Hello and welcome to the first episode of the Unreliable Sources Podcast!

We’re going to start everything off with a wrap of this year’s E3 show. In the first of two episodes we cover the presentations and game lineups from the big three – Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.

We make fun of Drivatars, cringe when Microsoft scripts a rape joke, explain how Playstation Plus is the best deal in gaming and learn how Shenmue is responsible for all of those quicktime events that you hate.

The second part will be up next week and we’ll cover EA, UbiSoft, all the rest of the games and give our final E3 summations.

Please let us know what you think about our first episode by leaving us a comment.
