Episode 135: Customs and Creations

Download | Shownotes

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another episode! This week Dialpex and Chevelle65 join us, fresh out of a Kane and Lynch community event. We cover a bunch of great customs and creations from the community, then we talk about their experience at the event and their thoughts on the game. Of course we also cover other valuable information such as what a headless chicken sounds like and the relative manliness of appletinis and sparkling water. Winner of this week’s pod art is SpoofManiac. Looks like he’s catching a bullet! Show’s about an hour this time.

  11. Jurassicdl3 says:

    why is it always that after you put it up here that it is not on itunes yet? i just want to know.

  12. marooner says:

    Looks to be a good one… again :D

  13. Anorexic Leader says:

    Still waiting for iTunes to update, but thats okay. Waiting never hurt no one, unless its gunfire in a PS3 launch line.

  14. JVB says:

    Was the burrito good, Dial?

  15. lilkuke says:

    What’s with the Navy thing? Are you guys really sponsored by them, or is it a joke or something?

  16. Duffman X18 says:

    It’s for real. Navy also sponsors Achievement Junkies and Gamertag Radio.

  17. a surly hobo says:

    It’s just an advertisement. Geez you guys act like you’ve never heard them before. Foomo can’t pay the hosting bill by himself. Same with the other GCN podcasts who have ads.

  18. JVB says:

    Its simple guys, Podtacular is extremely popular and they want to get their product out there. We are not in some secret agreement with the Navy to sign up a given number of new recruits, or any other crazy theory that I’ve heard about this. We are giving them air-space and they are paying for it, plain and simple.

    nice show really liked it

  20. foomojive says:

    Short answer: technical stuff.

    Long answer: Any updates to the site are only seen right away when you log in because of aggressive caching. If you don’t log in, the site updates every 12 hours in order to cut down on bandwidth. This also affects the RSS feed which iTunes scans for new episodes. This may change soon when we get dedicated hosting, which we are forced to switch to soon. Good question.

  21. Anorexic Leader says:

    Just a thought, a very twisted one, but it’s an idea…. Podtacular should start having the Marines sponsor as well. That way our podcast about Halo, would be even more closely related to Master Chief, and the UNSC Marines. The UNSC is comprised of Marines and Navy, so for Podtacular to be sponsored by both, it would feel like we were hearing advertisements for enlistment to the future UNSC. I know that this sounds completely retarded, but the advertisements that you all complain about aren’t really that bad if you think about them from a Halo back-story kinda position. Plus come on, web hosting cost major $$$! Foo Mo may be awesome, but he’s not made of money….or is he?

  22. JVB says:

    “Through Podtacular, the recruitment for future Spartans begins. You soldiers of the future have honed your skills through a combat simulation known to the U.S Government as: Halo. Microsoft will be exposed for who they really are: The UNSC.”

    I cannot confirm or deny that this is real, but if it were true, it would be pretty cool.


  23. Duffman X18 says:

    Dude that would be awesome.

  24. Anorexic Leader says:

    Thanks for the backup JVB….but that would definetly be both cool and creepy.
    That means the UNSC is responsible for my 3 broken consoles….not cool. lol.

  25. heavyfire grunt says:

    sweet i got on agien

  26. Spoofmaniac says:

    lol. Nice show guys. If one of my screenshots gets on again I’ll get way to big for my britches.

  27. TheRussianKoLob says:

    Yeah the advertisements are kind of nice breaks in the action. It’s almost like splitting the show into chapters. If you know something in the podcast that you want to listen to and you know what advertisement it is after then you can find it easier. Anyways, I didn’t say what the map for Gaylo was called. It is called Gaybar, since it is on Last Resort which was originally called Zanzibar so it seemed to work out and go along with the whole “theme” I guess you could call it.

  28. Swift Ninja1 says:

    I wish I could catch a bullet…Nice podcast guys!

  29. Anorexic Leader says:

    I downloaded Gaybar from you Russian, but without my 360, I haven’t been able to try it.
