Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 33

December 18, 2012 -

Episode 33 of the Super Podcast Action Committee is a "Best of 2012" episode, or a "clip show" as Andrew Eisen is fond of calling it. With Andrew trapped somewhere in a basement in a rural part of Kentucky, and the Christmas and New Year's holidays on the horizon, we thought it would be a good time to take a break and prepare for 2013. So this week we pick our favorite segments from the first 32 episodes of the show. We hope you enjoy this look back.

December 14, 2012 -

From DRM to piracy and attitudes about the holidays, Andrew lays it all down in the simplest terms and with the most colorful language he has used to date. You can check out his latest video on his YouTube channel or to your left.

Zachary Knight discuss the shaky launch of the Wii U console over the weekend, Sony perma-bans for PS3 'hackers,' and the good and bad side of Electronic Arts.

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 27

November 5, 2012 -

In Episode 27 of the Super Podcast Action Committee hosts Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight talk about the 2012 presidential election - including some candidates you may not have heard of because the media has done its best to ignore them.

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 26

October 29, 2012 -

In Episode 26 of the Super Podcast Action Committee hosts Andrew Eisen and E. Zachary Knight celebrate Halloween with tales of horror about bugs and glitches in video games, offer their opinions on Activision editing a Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer map because of complaints from the community, and share several true ghost stories.

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 25

October 23, 2012 -

Zachary Knight talk about what happens when a fully funded Kickstarter project (in this case the game Haunts: The Manse Macabre) fails to become reality, the wisdom of knowing when to shut down a failing Kickstarter campaign (the focus of that topic being Loot Drop's attempts to fund the 'Old School RPG'), the latest on the "six strikes" copyright enforcement scheme adopted by U.S. ISPs, Andrew's latest video, and the horrors of using voice chat on Nintendo's Wii U.

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 24

October 15, 2012 -

It is shocking just how many gamers have at least one or two games lying around that they haven't finished or haven't played. In episode 24 of the Super Podcast Action Committee Andrew and EZK spend a fair amount of time talking about that topic and revealing the results of the latest GamePolitics poll. They also dissect the latest lawsuits including one against Turbine Entertainment and a settlement agreement between Spry Fox and 6Waves over some unauthorized cloning of a popular iOS app. FX Network's Archer also gets an honorable mention..

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 23

October 9, 2012 -

A "day late and 30 minutes short" would be the best way to describe Episode 23 of the Super Podcast Action Committee as host Andrew Eisen struggles with being sick and co-host E. Zachary Knight rails against the wickedness of the state of Oklahoma keeping his preferred candidate off the ballot. In between these trials and tribulations, Andrew and EZK talk about Kevin Butler being sued by Sony, Nintendo's non-gamer ad, the latest poll on GamePolitics, and troubles at the drive-in.

This episode will chafe you more than an iron thong on a female fighter who can't stand up straight because some Japanese guy gave her an unneeded mega boob job... Someone call a chiropractor!

Super Podcast Action Committee - Lucky Episode 13

July 25, 2012 -

Zachary Knight discuss Fez developer Phil Fish's decision not to fix the patch for the game before re-releasing it to Xbox Live (because it costs too much money), Uniloc's patent infringement claims against Minecraft maker Mojang, last week's results from the GamePolitics poll, and the media trying to blame Batman comics, movies and games for the horrific Aurora, Colorado theater shooting.

Visualizing an Irate The Dark Knight Rises Fan Lashing out at Critics

July 19, 2012 -

In his latest video Andrew Eisen plays the part of a The Dark Knight Rises fan responding to critics.

While the video is about the movie and the response to low review scores for the latest Christopher Nolan Batman film on Rotten Tomatoes (which apparently caused some fans to issue some death threats and share some other forms of vile speech), this video could easily apply to Halo, Uncharted, Madden, or any other beloved franchise with a protective fan base...

Some items were harmed during the making of this video. We were not involved.

Super Podcast Action Committee - Episode 11

July 18, 2012 -

Episode 11 of the Super Podcast Action Committee almost didn't happen this week. Oh, Andrew and Zachary sat down and talked for a full 60 minutes, but an upgrade to the recording software we use managed to throw a wrench in the works leaving us with only 32 minutes of questionable audio to work with.

How Many Bleeps Does it Take?

July 16, 2012 -

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this new video from Andrew Eisen is NSFW. In this episode Andrew has lost the ability to create videos (he doesn't explain the why or how of that) so he tries his hand at creative censorship. You can see the original lengthier version of the commercial he's making fun of here.

InfophileYou also need to take into account just how crappy it would be to only have the basics to live. But with competing forces at play like this, it's impossible to argue to an answer. We have to look to tests of it, and results are mixed. Some show decreased07/12/2014 - 6:51am

Matthew WilsonThe issue is most people would settle for the basics and not work. That is why we would need very heavy automation to make a system like that work. Almost all labor intensive tasks would have to be done by robot.07/11/2014 - 2:32pm
InfophileOf course, that's a gross oversimplification. The idea, have a basic safety net that pays for what's needed to live. If people can find a job and are willing to work, they get more money which can be spent on comfort and perks.07/11/2014 - 11:33am
InfophileIt's quite possible to get an economy to work with a basic minimum standard of living. You just need perks for the people who do work. Everyone gets food and a home. Everyone who works also gets an iPhone.07/11/2014 - 11:32am
