Ep. 1168: Where it's not us it's Wii U Video
This is what we get for calling our show "The 404." Despite literally everything going wrong on today's show (sorry, live listeners!), we get it in gear for what turns out to be a hilarious show, thanks to CNET reporter Caroline McCarthy who comes in and saves the day. Today, Jeff previews us on the latest Nintendo Wii games, including the new Wii Fit Plus, Super Mario Bros, Wii Sports Resort, and more!
Natali Del Conte makes her triumphant return from E3 and joins us on today's show. After suffering through two years with an HTC Mogul, Jeff finally upgraded to the Palm Pre this weekend. Tune in for Jeff's personal review as well as some unfortunate news that has us all reeling...with laughter.
We have two awesomely inexplicable voice mails today, we discuss the rise of Zeus (the botnet), and Ubisoft's new DRM scheme sends us into a synchronized rage. We also chat with Peter Brantley, co-founder of the Open Book Alliance, about the latest twist and turn in the Google Books settlement attempt. Short version: copyright law sucks, but not quite as much as class-action law. What a mess. --Molly
Today's show is all about Jeff and Stacie Bakalar's beautiful wedding this weekend!
It's been a bittersweet month for teenagers in CO and WA: Hostess announced it's going out of business and Nintendo's Wii U launch this weekend falls short of features and services.
AT&T earns the "worst carrier in the world" award for the second year in a row, so it's a good thing I just signed up for two more years of service with this new iPhone 4S. On today's show, we'll look at how the other carriers compare to AT&T, dispel rumors of Shigeru Miyamoto's departure from Nintendo, put in our bid for RickPerry.com, Jeff demoes My Xbox Live for the iPad, and we'll show some incredible listener-submitted contest submission videos!
May 21st came and went, and we're glad the rapture didn't happen before Jeff gets his bits glittered! It's almost a sure thing now that his opponent Peter Ha is only 15 followers away from 4,000- which means a pejazzling is in Jeff's immediate future.
Jeff keeps complaining about the lack of gaming news on the show, so we're bringing Mark Licea on the show every Wednesday for your weekly video game update! It's like Pre-Game but with more dudes.
Jeff spent his 31st birthday weekend playing Bioshock Infinite and writing the CNET review. I can't tell if that's fun or really depressing, but check out today's episode for his full report.
Yesterday's Google I/O event announcements gives us plenty of Android-related topics to discuss today. It's not all tech talk though! Tune in as we show off Jeff's Honeybadgers hockey team logo and Justin reviews Fast Five!
