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. It's spookier and creepier (or hotter depending on your perspective) than Mitt Romney making out with President Barack Obama and Gary Johnson in the balcony of a seedy New York City movie theater!

October 17, 2012 -

Arktos Entertainment Group, the makers of the MMO The War Z, had an embarrassing moment this week as users on this Reddit thread revealed that the company copied the League of Legends terms of service agreement and inserted it into their game.

Cheech and Chong's The Fatty App Released

September 18, 2012 -

With all the talk of legalizing the use of marijuana at the state and federal level (for and against), it seems only appropriate that the 70's most iconic stoner comedy team should release an app on Android and iOS. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have teamed up with developer MEDL Mobile to create and deploy Cheech and Chong's The Fatty. The app is a mix of gags, gameplay and fun but useless utilities for the modern age stoner.

Games That Never Were: Chinese Electronics Factory Worker: The Game

September 17, 2012 -

The following faux game commercial is over-the-top but admittedly funny in an ironic sort of way. The commercial is for "the greatest real time strategy game never made; Chinese Electronics Factory Worker: The Game!"

The best and most cringe inducing quote from the video is when the young boy playing the game proclaims:

"Exploiting Chinese Workers is awesome!"

Watch the video to your left. Thanks to Jamie Stanton for sending us the video link.

Greta Van Susteren v. Reid Wilson in Comedy Central's Indecision Game Finals

September 13, 2012 -

While some reporters were covering the Democratic and Republican Conventions earlier this month, quite a few of them were fooling around with a competition put on by 2K Play and Comedy Central's Indecision Game. A "clandestine" political trivia tournament was held between 20 of the nation's greatest political pundits and reporters to see who was the most politically savvy in a March Madness-style bracket.

OOPS: Madden NFL 13 Puts Wrong Face on Giants' Marcus Thomas

August 29, 2012 -

An error with an image in Madden NFL 13 has one NFL star agitated to no end. New York Giants player Marcus Thomas was upset when he noticed that an in-game photo of a different Marcus Thomas was in his profile. That Marcus Thomas played for the Denver Broncos three years ago and looks nothing like the New York Giants star.

Obviously the Marcus Thomas who was supposed to be pictured in the game wasn't too happy about it and took to Twitter:

Judge Lucy Koh, Part-Time Comedian

August 17, 2012 -

Our chuckle of the day is sponsored by the BBC, who reports the surprising and mildly amusing response of Judge Lucy Koh after reading Apple's Witness list. The judge in the high-stakes, high profile US patent trial between Apple and Samsung made her comments after Apple attorney William Lee named 22 people in a 73-page witness list he wanted to call to rebut the testimony of Samsung's witnesses.

After looking at the list, Judge Koh offered the following response:

Bad Ideas: Shock Collars and Gaming

August 3, 2012 -

Two French gamers decided that it would be a grand idea to reprogram a Sega Genesis so that every time a player made a mistake or took damage in a game they would get some punishment from shock collars. You can't make this kind of stuff up, folks. Also it goes without saying that you shouldn't try this at home.

The two gamers try everything from Sonic to Golden Axe 3, with amusing results. You'll notice in one of the shots that alcohol might be involved in the production of this little experiment...

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.

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.

Dig Dug: The Fake Movie Trailer

July 9, 2012 -

Steven Davis dropped us a note informing us of a trailer that, he claims, he made for "some Hollywood producers" who asked him to make a movie trailer mock-up of Namco Bandai's classic arcade game Dig Dug. He calls the film "a fan made trailer" and lists all the materials he used to piece it together. The movie borrows scenes from such films as The Core, Tekken, Reign of Fire, 9, Monsters Vs.

Hot Coffee Game Pokes Fun at ‘Hot Coffee’ Mod

May 7, 2012 -

Described by its creator as is kind of a 'sex game' that features no sex," Hot Coffee plays with the phrase synonymous with the infamous secret sexual gameplay hidden in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (thanks Polygon). While there's no actual sex in the game there's enough innuendo in it to turn a modest man or woman beet red.

The Man Your Games Could Sell To

April 24, 2012 -

Andrew Eisen's latest video is a sequel of sorts to his popular "Nintendo: Why Won't You Let Me Give You My Money?" video,  though this time we find him shirtless, with a kitten, and on a beach.

I will also go out on a limb here and call it the funniest video he's ever made. Enjoy!

Comic: The Difference Between North and South Korea

April 24, 2012 -

If there's anything that best illustrates the differences between North and South Korea, then it has to be this The Oatmeal comic, comparing one simple idea of collecting resources. While the comic is funny, the truth is that you would have to combine those images to get the true nature of North Korea: by day a prisoner works in the freezing cold, and by night they farm gold or resources to earn real world cash for their keepers. Yeah, sorry to be a Debbie Downer...

The Escapist's Blankety Blank Panel at PAX East 2012

April 16, 2012 -

If you weren't at PAX EAST in Boston then you missed out on some great panels. One of the wildest was The Escapist's Blankety-Blank panel, which recreated the classic TV game show Match game using a PAX East audience and a clever group of panelist to create a game-related version of the show.

A Parody of Coldplay’s Viva la Vida in Minecraft

April 3, 2012 -

Every once in awhile someone creates a parody that is absolutely brilliant, but this music video of Coldplay's "Viva la Vida" built inside Minecraft is quite impressive. The song is performed by TryHardNinja and the world map seems to have been built specifically for the video.

Crafting the Perfect April Fool’s Day Prank

April 2, 2012 -

Even though we missed the shenanigans of covering April Fool’s Day this year (it fell on Sunday and it’s rare that companies issue press statements and stories on the weekend - unless there is a trade show or fan event going on somewhere), we liked Andrew Eisen's video so much that we thought we should share it with you.

Andrew shows you what happens when you think you have the most diabolical April Fool’s Day joke ever.

Check out the video to your left, it's vintage Andrew Eisen - and by vintage, I mean completely insane...

Webcomic Imagines BioWare’s Reaction to Angry Gamer

March 21, 2012 -

For the past two weeks, fan complaints over Mass Effect 3’s DLC and ending have been loud and plentiful (if not always rational or polite).  Much to the chagrin of the more passionate and impatient of us gamers, BioWare didn’t immediately kowtow to various fan demands, perhaps leading some to wonder if the company simply didn’t give a toss now that it has their money.

An Open Letter to an Xbox Hacker

March 15, 2012 -

Jason Helton pens an F-U letter to the guy who hijacked his Xbox Live account (and credit card) and decided to buy a bunch of crap on Xbox Live. The lover letter can be found over at Joystick Division, and might be funny until you consider what this poor guy had to do stop this interloper. For one, he probably had to cancel his credit card and try to dispute any purchases the guy made, and then he decided to simply wipe his Xbox Live account to avoid any further agitation.
