Front Towards Gamer Radio

dubstep-dj

Another week of no Gigi, replaced by FTGR audio editor Brandon Parker who goes by the handle...Ail...eronsalrison. Aileron. Aa-yel-ryon. Damnit. Anyway, he's also on Front Towards Gamer's shooter podcast, Running Riot Radio!

Anyway, Brandon bitches about playing space taxi in Ascend and how Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is "a little more fun" now that it's gotten its most recent patch. Quinn spits venom about the Powers live action and his time in Ori and the Blind Forest, while it's a cop filled podcast with LA Cops and Battlefield Hardline.

Shanghai Six sits down with Phil Robb, the co-founder of Turtle Rock Studios (Left 4 Dead, Evolve) to discuss the history of the studio, the jump from Valve following the original Left 4 Dead, and of course, Evolve, Evolve, and EVOLVE! And yes, we do briefly touch on some of the community complaints about the downloadable content offered outside of the season pass.

Another sans-Gigi episode, we get ambushed by Bill Murray! No, not really, but Quinn did! Also, he fell down a weird K-Pop hole this week which I'm fairly sure he won't recover, please send your prayers to him.  Pinch hitting for our zombie loving Gigi this week is Rhys "Triscuitable" Egner to discuss what he saw on the show floor of PAX East, including Overwatch, Windward and Moonrise, while Shanghai bemoans the fact of his going to PAX East and having too many meetings for Operation Supply Drop to actually play anything on the show floor! #firstworldproblems

Five Nights at Freddy 17

A little late post #PAXEast...did I just hashtag in Wordpress? You bet I did. Because I'm fragged right now and sitting in a pool of business cards and unanswered emails from our @OpSupplyDrop booth! Jesus, I just did it again! I used a Twitter handle for Operation Supply Drop. Aaaaaaaargh.

Sorry for the late show posting, but PAX East was a huge success for OSD. Here's what you missed out on not listening to this podcast already! Quinn describes picking his ass and cheeto eating routine having played exactly zero games, Gigi talks about her playing through Resident Evil Revelations 2 or whatever the hell Capcom is vomiting out to keep their US studio alive between Monster Hunter games, and Shanghai tells us all far too much about his disappointment with Five Nights at Freddy's 3.

After months of hunting, we were finally able to secure an interview with one of the biggest names in video games out there right now, Mr. Troy Baker. You may not know him by sight, but, oh, buddy, do you know his voice! He's been providing voices for major triple A video games for over a decade now, from taking over for Mark Hamill's irreplaceable performance as The Joker from Batman to another well dressed sociopath, Pagan Min from Far Cry 4. Shanghai Six talks with him about his bizarre start doing radio commercials, what it was like working with Kevin Spacey on the set of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and what it's like trying to put out a record (his album "Sitting in the Fire" released in October) in the day of age of rampant piracy and services like Spotify and Pandora.

The gang is all back together for this week's show, with Gamergirltalk coming back from reconstructive naming surgery; she will no longer be referred to as "Gamer Girl Talk" but her Xbox Live gamer tag, "Soapy Warpig". Because, you know, video games. But none of it matters, because she'll always be "Gigi" to us!

Regardless, all three of the hosts have played The Order: 1886 and have a variety of thoughts on the snippet of a gorgeous game, while Gigi rails on the dumb teenage photographer Maxine Caulfield from Life is Strange, and Quinn discusses Telltale Games and Liongate doing something in the television market, because as you all know, video games adapted for television ALWAYS work out so well.

League of Legends Diamond-ranked jungle professor FoxDropLoL stops by the podcast this week to talk about his crazy streaming/Youtube recording schedule, what his plans are for both Season 5 and the days when League of Legends is out of the gaming world spotlight, what he's been doing recently to fight the burn out associated with a Twitch/Youtube schedule...and most importantly...what exactly IS a "FoxDrop"?

The boys are forced again to fend for themselves while Mama Bear Gigi takes another siesta for this week's show, likely having something to do with a work-related injury involving her 3DS and Animal Crossing. Shanghai Six gets down with Sunless Sea and a little more Darkest Dungeon, while Quinn barks about Evolve's outrageous downloadable content plan...but still loves the game. Of course, we talk about "war never changing" with the announcement of the first ever Bethesda E3 press release and the withdrawal of video game "drunk uncle" Peter "Promised-But-Failed-to-Deliver-Again" from the media spotlight after yet another debacle.

Front Towards Gamer Radio's host who is missing a Y chromosome is unable to attend the taping due to garbage mass transit issues, so Quinn and Shanghai do battle with an hour of air time without their Animal Crossing-obsessed co-host. Quinn talks the Grim Fandango remastered edition and how sweet the second episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones game is, while Shanghai goes over the Call of Cthulu-esque dungeon crawler Darkest Dungeon, while both of them discuss the bizarre supernatural Gone Home knock-off, Life is Strange and whether or not its worth your $20...and how badass King Abdullah of Jordan is.

In an extremely meta-interview, Operation Supply Drop founder and chief program officer, Stephen "Shanghai Six" Machuga, sits down and talks with his good friend and Operation Supply Drop chief executive officer, Glenn "Commander" Banton about the future of the charity and what lies ahead, how Glenn went from a fan of the charity to the CEO in just over a year, and how he went from skinny tech-geek basketball player to champion for the military and "blackpowder therapy" enthusiast!
