Ep. 1337: Where where we only sit when we're playing Sodoku Video
Polygon's Russ Frushtick joins Jeff in the studio to talk about the new Anchorman 2 trailer and the best food he had last week in Los Angeles.
Today Jeff welcomes Harold Goldberg back to the show, where the two discuss the best games of the year, next-gen consoles, and Harold's Playboy Magazine profile of Rockstar Games' Sam Houser.
Polygon's Russ Frushtick sits down with Jeff Bakalar to discuss 2012's best and worst games.
Since Jeff can't attend the 26th annual Game Developers Conference on March 5 in SF, we're doing the next best thing and bringing part of the show to him! General Manager Meggan Scavio is our guest today and we're getting all the details on the upcoming show, like how it got its start back when it was called the Computer Game Developers Conference back in 1988 and how the gaming industry has evolved into separate silos for console, PC, and mobile developers.
This week's Apple iPad announcement gives us the perfect opportunity to discuss the future of publishing with Cliff Chiang and Jerry Ma, two graphic illustrators in the comic book industry. They join us in the studio today to talk about their collaborative project, "Secret Identities," a graphic novel anthology of Asian American superhero stories.
Well that happened. We're back in the studio after a week of wading through Hurricane Sandy and Jeff got hit the hardest. Check out today's episode for stories of what we saw, how we managed, and what you can do to help the relief effort.
Rappers Big Boi and B.o.B. came through the studio yesterday to tell us about their new game Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. Other topics discussed include guns, balls, ratchet, tea bags, and plants.
Leaked from today's 404 episode: The usual suspects help kick off a week of Jeff-less shows while he's away at E3. With zero hockey and video game news to hold us back, we're chatting about a few offbeat stories from the weekend, including preteens on Facebook, Denver ambulances using subwoofers to clear traffic, and a dad whose cyberprank definitely crossed the line.
It's our last show before flying out to CES for a week of mayhem in Las Vegas. We're keeping a positive attitude about this year, but it may be a different story when we broadcast live from the CNET stage next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 1PM PT.
The 404 is complete once again, forming flying Vs and throwing knuckle pucks that would make Gordon Bombay proud. The first story to mention is the return of The Red Kid (not that one, Jeff), but this time to Twitter! It's about time, Conan, but you know you're a little late to the Twitter game when you get beaten by His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. It's good to have Conan back, and he might even be coming to a city near you!
