Front Towards Gamer Radio

2412476-me2_butt

Oh, dear, we're really trying to break the search engine optimization this week with this episode title! In honor of the cast reuniting after weeks apart, Gigi surprises no one in continuing her standoff against playing The Walking Dead and instead goes on about Fantasy Life, errr, Animal Crossing, errr, Rune Factory IV (and surprisingly about how she's dumped 60 hours in to Bloodborne). Quinn talks about putting some time into Mortal Kombat X, while Shanghai gets all forbidden up in this piece with his talk about closed alpha access for both Killing Floor 2 and Rainbow Six: Siege!

Remember, every five-star review we get in iTunes, we'll read out in the community segment! #dangle

Shanghai Six sits down with giant man-child (he's like 6'5" in real life) strangely now the voice of IGN's Podcast Beyond, Max Scoville. We chat about just what in the hell Max's "Teen Zone" Comedy Button product is, Max's "sleeping on a friend's couch because his mom lived at a Buddist monestary" beginnings in the games industry, and just what his love for raccoons is all about.

Absolutely no one shows up this week. And we thought April Fools was last week! Anyway, Shanghai brings on a "Guest Quinn" Rhys Egner to talk about his thoughts on finally taking the plunge to buy an Xbox One for Halo 5 and his playing Mortal Kombat X on iPhone, as well as a "Guest Gigi" with FTG Features editor Dylan Tierney. Dylan starts to talk about his preview of "FTL meets Mad Max" game Convoy, but then Shanghai steals the ball and runs with it, then talks Axiom Verge and how he's feeling particularly ripped off having paid $20 for what is essentially an 8-bit Nintendo game on his Playstation 4.

Oh, and the Five Nights at Freddy's movie rights being optioned by Warner Brothers. Because WHY NOT.

Shanghai Six gets a glimpse behind the "Purple Curtain" with Twitch's Community manager Jordan Tayer, streaming handle "Soma". Soma tells of harrowing tales of what it was like to have been a partnered Twitch streamer before every console controller had "share" button functionality, how being a professional streamer isn't the cake-and-ice-cream life that non-streamers imagine it is to be, and a few tips on getting breaking your stream out from the millions of others to grab the brass ring of Twitch partner!

Kicked-in-the-Nads

How confident is Quinn that Fallout 4 is coming out this year? Well, he's promised Shanghai and podcast guest host Morgan Park that someone will give him a kick to the balls. He doesn't event want anything in return, that's how confident he is about this bet. So, look forward to Quinn getting kicked in the balls publicly at PAX South 2016!

Morgan and Shanghai discuss Blood Souls...err, we mean Bloodborne and how it differs from the rest of the Souls series and Quinn finally figures out why people love the hell out of the Borderlands series!

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.
