Podcast Season 2, Episode 01: Delta Harderer

September 8th, 2013 by

podcast cover_smallIn the season premiere of the Delta Attack Podcast, Mark A. Brooks and Mark Pulver return to Triangle Island to find Fade to Slack destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked and looking for an angry fix. Can anything save them, or will a polar bear inexplicably show up because literally jumping a shark would be just a little too gratuitous?

Join us, as we discuss Keiji Inafune’s beautiful little Kickstarter, the greatness that is Earthbound, the death of the Japanese RPG, what’s wrong with Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time, and what toy the Nintendo 2DS most closely resembles. All that, plus, a smattering of talk about zombie games and bonding through shared experiences?

We know you’re going to dig this. It’s time for the new Show of Shows. Sid Caesar, eat your heart out and wise fwom your gwave!

Podcast Special 002: Phil Fish vs. The World

July 31st, 2013 by

podcast cover_smallThis is another edition of “One Man Show: The Shit I’m Too Lazy to Write”.

Over the weekend, Phil Fish took offense to some things Marcus Beer, previously better known as AnnoyedGamer at GameTrailers, said about him and Jonathan Blow. In turn, Fish demanded a public apology from Beer on Twitter, because people apparently still do that sort of thing in the magical land of make-believe, and received no satisfaction.

Phil Fish canceled Fez II in a huff this weekend and stated that he’s done with the games industry. No one is really taking the loudmouth seriously.

Sure, Phil, whatever you say. This isn’t a big pile of bluster, dude, because you always select your words wisely.

Marcus Beer, though? You’re every bit as much a windbag as Fish, though. Seriously, there’s no way you’d pull that shit with someone who’s not an indie developer. Way to pick on the little guy, you fucking jerk.

Hug it out, bitches, before I cyberslap the shit out of you both.

Episode 013 – Playin’ Slayin’ and Living with IAP

April 13th, 2013 by

podcast cover_smallIn this episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, the secret origins of Delta Attack are finally revealed. The result? Not that surprising and, frankly, just a copycat origin story of Netjak. However, we live to tell the tale!

It’s almost as lame as any comic book written by Tony Bedard. Seriously, how does that hack keep finding work but Chuck Austen was a pariah? You comic book nerds know what I’m talking about, or are you still upset that Juggernaut and She-Hulk shared a moment?

Today, we cover a variety of games on iOS, though Guacamelee keeps it from being entirely iOS-centric. Slayin’, Final Fantasy V, and troublesome in-app purchases all come to mind. It’s a hot mess, but you want some of this hotness.

Also, while I can’t prove my opening claim that we’re the only podcast to talk about Pink Jelly Tits, I’d bet dollars to donuts that we are. Pink jelly-filled donuts that you can stick your fingers in and then lick clean. It smells so fresh and tastes like strawberries.

Episode 012 – The Dilemma of Time, a Mystic Wonder

March 2nd, 2013 by

podcast cover_small“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.” ― William Penn

In this episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, the DA Crew meet up with Stanley and Peabody in the Wayback Machine. Things get fractured, but you will believe a squirrel can fly. Moose? Not so much.

Today, Fade to Slack goes on the attack when defending Real Racing 3, Markham Asylum tells us about Etrian Odyssey IV and how the best JRPG franchise you probably haven’t played just got better, and Mark A. Brooks talks about the gratuitous fun of MonTowers. Somehow or another, we reminisce about a game you wouldn’t catch most gamers looking back fondly upon, but we own it. You only live once, kids.

Note: We have a few moments of broken audio from internet latency issues. We apologize for the technical difficulties. It’ll likely happen again, so I won’t give you that spiel. Just giving you a head’s up. It doesn’t last long, we promise. Thank you, Audacity!

Hit the start button, break out your zapper, and get ready for some mega fun.

Episode 011 – Ni No Kuni, Wii U No Sell-y

February 17th, 2013 by

podcast cover_smallIn this month’s episode of the Delta Attack Podcast, Fade to Slack takes you way back into the past to the mystical, forgotten land of last week. You’re getting a week old serving that’s fairly fresh, but fairly unedited. I’m busy, so sue me! Except, you know, don’t. Sorry I said those bad things about you and your mother. I’m sure that stuff only happens in Japan.

Join Mark A. Brooks, Markham Asylum, and Fade to Slack as they talk about the Wii U woes, the problems with the next console generation, iOS, and unintentional Engrish. It’s like when you realize that chocolate and peanut butter isn’t enough and throw in some marshmallow creme for good measure, except without all the weight gain and secretive sobbing afterwards.

This episode of the Delta Attack Podcast is sponsored by SPAM. Except that it’s not. I’m just really hungry. I fried up some SPAM and tossed it into a can of Hormel Vegetarian Chili with Beans for a surprisingly tasty dish.

SPAM’s not technically a meat, right? I’m sure my diet’s going fine.

Episode 010 – Wii U, Ouya. Ouya, Wii U.

January 5th, 2013 by

podcast cover_small

This episode of the Delta Attack Podcast kicks off the new year by completely ignoring the new year.  If you want to listen to some gamers talk about New Year’s Resolutions, you’ve come to the wrong place. Also, we’re fine the way we are. I’m not a diaper, so stop trying to change me!

Today’s podcast features a discussion about the Wii U, the upcoming Android-based OUYA console, and why 2D games are superior to 3D when it comes to some genres. Two steps forward, one step retro. Also, a couple of dirty gaming secrets, some curse words, and an inability to stay on topic round out the show.

Overture, curtain, lights.
This is it, the night of nights!
No more rehearsing or nursing our part.
We know every part by heart!

Overture, curtain, lights.
This is it, we’ll hit the heights!
And, oh, what heights we’ll hit.
On with the show, this is it!

This is the Delta Attack Podcast.

Episode 009: Ignorance Isn’t Always Bliss

December 8th, 2012 by

Failures. We’ve all had them. Some of us more than others. Yeah, I’m looking at you, Todd. If you ever want to be a part of this family again, you need to get back on your feet and stop using. Don’t you see? You’re tearing this family apart!

The DA Crew triangulates to bring you this nerdy little slice of heaven. Contrary to what the song says, heaven can’t wait.

Today’s episode covers a short discussion on Final Fantasy IV. Well, short for us. Then we glaze over how Mother 3 made Fade cry like he just watched a puppy fall into a running blender. Ni no Kuni makes an appearance for people who love Level 5 and Studio Ghibli, which SHOULD be everyone. Then we just… yeah… we talk. Things get weird… more than once.

Honestly, this is a hodgepodge potpourri variety pack of a show, but you’ve got time to spare.

Podcast Special 001: The Shit I Don’t Feel Like Writing

November 4th, 2012 by

Today’s podcast is different than the rest. One man, one mission, one microphone. Today, the cheese stands alone.

Join Fade to Slack as he delves through a variety of topics such as the iPad 4 (which he mistakenly refers to as the iPhone4 a few times) and iPad Mini launch, the Zynga layoffs and the first three games that will be closing up, the Nintendo Wii-U, Rocketcat’s Punch Quest failing to earn money, and anything else he was too lazy to write about.

Take your rest breaks and grab your snacks, the show’s about to start. This is the “One Man Show.”
