Magic: The Troubling

September 6th, 2012 by

Anybody who’s played Magic: The Gathering (or MTG if you’re not a nerd) has probably engaged in the act of making their own cards. People do it all the time; it’s hard not to let those creative juices flow when the muse comes a’whisperin’. But let’s be honest: Most cards that people make, well, they kinda suck. They’re either too overpowered, too imbalanced, or too dumb and stupid and stuff. Falling squarely into all of those categories are these cards that I made for you. Enjoy!

Episode 006 – Top Five: A Tribute to Rob Gordon

August 2nd, 2012 by

In this episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, the boys hijack Mister Peabody’s Wayback Machine and talk about console games that totally don’t appeal to their target audience. Seriously, you crazy kids, what with your Apple Pie Phones and that Justine Beaver girl with the angel’s voice, don’t know how easy you got it. When I was young, there was no retro. That’s just the way things were. There were no narratives. You saved the princess and you liked it!

Today’s podcast is actually inspired Rob Gordon, the main character of High Fidelity. Rob Gordon’s constant need to sort things into top five lists made me think that we could do a few as well without any prior knowledge or planning. We ended up doing just one.

You’ve played hundreds, maybe thousands, of games. Can you break that down to your top five all-time favorite games? Don’t think too hard about it. Just toss them out there. Hell, drop it in the comments. You’ll have the advantage of forethought that we didn’t have.

Spoiler alert: The three guys from a site named after a three-person attack that appears in numerous Final Fantasy games each named a Final Fantasy game.

Episode 005: iOS, 3DS, and Penny Arcade Can Kiss My S.

July 14th, 2012 by

In this very special episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, everybody learns a very valuable lesson about life, love, and respect when the kids find a magical hat that takes them to a post-apocalyptic future where robotic vampires rule the world.

That, or we give our impressions on Tiny Wings 2.0 and Rovio’s Amazing Alex for iOS and Theatrhythm on 3DS. Then, we look at two very different Kickstarter campaigns in OUYA and Penny Arcade. Finally, we talk about the graphical leap in the upcoming generations and wonder aloud if game graphics are about to plateau.

Hurry! Grab your snacks. The show’s about to start.

How to lose weight with your Nintendo Wii

June 30th, 2012 by

The picture above is what I look like today. Anyone who’s ever lost a significant amount of weight has that one pair of pants they keep as a memento of what they used to be. My memento is a pair of size 36 shorts that I bought in August 2009 because all my other shorts were too tight.

About two and a half years ago, I had an eye-opening experience. The school I teach at in Korea was selected for a reality show. I would be on television and, finally, the masses would see my handsome mug. Then, I sat and watched myself for a few brief moments on television.

Episode 004: Adventures in iOS

June 16th, 2012 by

In this podcast, Mark A. Brooks, Markham Asylum, and Fade to Slack cover the iOS bases and just talk about games. Endless runners, cave flyers, and the newly-coined “runner jumper.” Thanks, Zombie Parkour Runner, for giving us that one.

What happens when a new iOS-device owner gets sucked into the world of Paladog!? What’s Paladog!?! No, that’s not a coin block. I’m upset that you don’t know about the best game to come out of South Korea that just happens to have its own exclamation point.

Finally, the big news out of E3 was SmartGlass, not Nintendo’s Wii-U. Listen as we quickly glaze over it because, really, if that’s the biggest news out of E3, then you may as well close up shop.

Be honest. You have 64 minutes to spare. It’s cool. You can multitask. We don’t mind.
