Downloadable Content

Welcome to the show notes for Downloadable Content 9/20/2006, "In Breach Of Warranty."  The episode is available for direct download at this link, or feel free to subscribe to our iTunes compatible feed here.  We have not settled on a schedule, rather, we’ve just begun leaving the recorder on every time we write.  It’s different:  people can actually just walk in, and without their knowledge they’ve become a part of the "show."  It may become more standardized as we refine our process, but I know better than to make promises on this score.  I hope you enjoy it, it’s been gone a lot longer than we intended.  This helpful guide should help you get the most out of it. 

0:01 - I’m talking about Bluetooth pairing, here.  Gabe couldn’t understand why it was awesome.

2:24 - "Tender" is what I call Brenna in unguarded moments.  I don’t know why. 

2:34 - Believe it or not, and I would understand if you didn’t, there are even more shameful stories than this. 

3:54 - Rumpole of The Bailey is one of my favorite shows.

4:43 -  Apparently, you can play as the Master Hand in Super Smash Brothers?  Huh.

6:09 - The "Document" Robert refers to here is the Working Document (a kind of linear walkthrough) for On The Rain Slick Precipice Of Darkness

8:18 - There’s a demo of Sonic the Hedgehog on Live, if you want.  We liked it eventually.  At first, we didn’t quite understand the "rhythm" of it.  You’ll know what I mean when you play it.

10:10 - "Tell ‘em why you mad" is a quote from The Madd Rapper.  He has an album of his own I guess, but we never listened to it.  The quote is specifically from a song on Biggie’s Life After Death album entitled "Kick In The Door."   

11:18 - Culdcept Saga was shown again at TGS, and they keep releasing the videos on the US version of Marketplace, so I’m looking forward to playing a stateside release.  I’ve talked about it before.  It’s the "Magic: The Gathering" meets "Monopoly" game, the sort of ultraniche thing thing you’d never expect to see on that platform. 

11:46 - Bioware has a DS group now.  Exquisite! 

13:09 - The show Gabe was talking about is right here - it was IGN Weekly’s 25th episode.  It has Splinter Cell: Double Agent footage I’ve never seen anywhere else, but there’s also this strange sort of…  I guess "plot"(?) running through it.  I don’t keep up with the show, so I don’t know if this sort of thing happens a lot. 

14:44 - I start quoting House of Pain here for some reason.  It’s the song "I’m A Swing It," from their album Same As It Ever Was.  Yes, they continued to make albums after "Jump Around."

15:28 - After TGS, I think it’s pretty clear that they plan to release something this year.  I don’t think their online offering will actually be in place at launch, not in its entirety.  It doesn’t really mean anything long term - the Xbox launched with nothing on that score, and built up the industry standard service.  I’m just saying.   

16:14 - Here’s those screenshots of "Colors" screenshots I was talking about.  I think you will agree: odd

25:46 - The comic I’m talking about in this part can be found here.  It is from the year ninety-nine, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
