    love the grunt: “I will investigate, some one give me one of those Sherlock Holmes hats and a little pipe.” Funnies one so far, good job.

  2. shotgunfriendly says:

    wow you guy spent a lot of time on my submission and that was funny. just to clarify a few things, 1. i have no idea who is nay nay you have the wrong guy, 2. i will gladly take on all three of you who i offended in a 1 v 3 so you guys can have your revenge, 3. who in the world is nay nay? 4. my shotgun is actually very freindly its just that you are mean to it. =P 5. if you read my sig on bungie.net you will know that i already know what happens when you ask Lukems for Recon

    LOL shotgun your motto says “STOP HUMILIATINURSELF” so Luke put that there? I know you’re friends with Nay-Nay! :)

  5. shotgunfriendly says:

    lol that would be my motto foomoojive im glad you looked it up. but on bungie.net in my sig i put

    whenever somebody on bungie.net says RECON, lukems kills another persons chances of getting recon and another thread on bungie.net is condemned to the second page. =) glad you guys had fun with my submission

    once again unless im forgetting someone here i have no idea who nay nay is but if nay nay would like to be friends with me il be glad to accept a friend invite i have about 30 more spaces left

  6. Anorexic Leader says:

    Yea, I’m at school so I can’t snag this episode now, but it seems that shotgunfriendly’s post is gonna be hilarious…..

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that someones post in a forum mentioned the name Nay Nay,and it wasn’t you. I’m not sure of this, but I have a hunch that possibly your submission, and someone else’s got mixed together. That happened to me 5 or 6 episodes ago with one of my shout outs to Godtacular. So it’s definitely possible….

    I’m sure this will be a great episode, I would of submitted something, but I was really busy, and hadn’t played anything new or exciting yet. (New Maps)

  8. shotgunfriendly says:

    ok for the last time foomojive i dont no nay nay of course we could always resolve this over a match of cannon wars on halo3, that is as soon as i get my 360 back hopefully this weekend =)

    “I would of submitted something, but I was really busy, and hadn’t played anything new or exciting yet. (New Maps)”

    funny thing is anorexic i have had the RROD(red ring of death again for you JvB :p) yet i have had plenty of things to send in from past experiences. BTW is there any chance of me being able to play with any of you guys once i get my 360 back you know like a welcome back thing? im hoping on getting it back this week

  9. Anorexic Leader says:

    Well, what I meant was fun Customs. Most of the Customs I’ve had for awhile and haven’t really found a new diamond in the rough yet. I could have submitted something, but I’d rather submit something that I personally thought was golden, and not something that was fun for only one or two games. As for me, I haven’t played much of anything, unless it was from Forgehub.com. Other than that all my time has been in Multi Team, or playing MLG Slayer. That doesn’t make for too many good creations or customs….

    However, when you get your 360 back, I think I’ll help you out, and we should throw a customs party for your new 360.
    Send me a F/R and we’ll play some…promise.

  10. shotgunfriendly says:

    im happy now yaaa =)

  11. dillonchipmonkey says:

    podtac rules, ive now been listening since the first halo3 episode and now i know that i should have started long long time ago

  12. shotgunfriendly says:

    hey guys guess what i actually did send a PM on bungie.net to Lukems AKA Luke Smith heres what i sent him

    “well luke if you listen to the podcast podtacular, you will know that i was asked by JvB and Foomojive to ask you, Can I Has Recon? well by all means i know i will not get it but it dosent matter sense you will probably just delete this without reading it. anyways great job with the podcast, and you seem to be very cocky. if you want a challenge try me =) jk have a nice day as i know you probably get so much hate mail

    so Can I Has Recon?”

    hope you enjoy this guys

  13. Anorexic Leader says:

    I just can’t wait to see what Luke writes back! (if he writes back) It would be so freaking crazy if he gave it too you, just for having the nerve to ask him….lol. Recon Armor FTW!

  14. shotgunfriendly says:

    ill cross my fingers, and….oh crap i dont have enough fingers! lol but who knows the only part i want from recon is are the shoulders as those kick ass. the helmet is fugly as hell

  15. Lancelot59 says:

    get me a little pipe and a hat lol. that was the best clip ever.

  16. Anorexic Leader says:

    Yea, the helmet isn’t all that great…..but if they made it too where we could wear the flaming helmets, I’d be sold. Sucks it’s locked for everybody though…..oh well, at least we know when we kill really important people online.

  17. kbcmmm7667 says:

    Two Thumbs up Podtacular. You literally made me LOL!

    Shotgun Friendly I want to meet Nay Nay!!

  18. Killazilla says:

    That review wasn’t too bad……right?…..anyone?


  19. foomojive says:

    i thought the review turned out really good! :D

  20. chuckiej says:

    HEH, I agree!

    Your fanboy-ism creeped in there at the beginning :-P Still very cool and I hope we can do more of that, even if its not a “regular” part of the show??

  21. chuckiej says:

    Yes, you should have! Welcome!

  22. evilmonkeeee says:

    I liked the review of Mass Effect quite alot. Even though I will not be getting it. I can not stand RPG’s.

  23. yowler18 says:

    EGM did an interview with one of the bungie guys and he said that its not actually the helmet thats on fire. its the collar of the body piece, but its still pretty sweet.

  24. Duffman X18 says:

    I wasn’t really feeling it. You said things like “I like…” a little too much.

  25. dillonchipmonkey says:

    i thought the review was pretty good but i cant stand rpgs either so i wont be getting it.

  26. XsUbLyMoNaLX says:

    I will be getting Mass Effect personally. Some RPG’s are good, and that one looks amazing.

  27. Anorexic Leader says:

    Sublymonal!!!!! Nice to see that you joined Podtac…

    Mass Effect is good, and like usual I’ll probably end up borrowing it…lol.

  28. XsUbLyMoNaLX says:

    Mass Effect was great.
    The graphics are superb.
    I recommend it to anyone.
    It’s very interactive, and it’s got good game play.
    Def worth the $$$$.

  29. azn_dude1 says:

    i don’t like RPGs where you have to choose something in the beginning to decide your fate.

  30. Stikboy824 says:

    Funny sh!t guys

  31. Killazilla says:

    Thats the thing.

    Your fate is decided many times in the game.

    Every mission and a few of the side missions directly effect your character or your squad.

  32. azn_dude1 says:

    I know. I mean like choosing to be a soldier/engineer in the beginning. That’s the part I don’t like. I prefer to start from scratch and build up myself instead choosing to be a certain class in the beginning and having to stick with it.

  33. Master_Podtack says:

    Lol nice dudes!
