Episode 13: The PAXtastic PAXcast! (2012 Edition)

In this episode, Jet Wolf and Ultrace go deep into the jungles of PAX Prime, braving a land of endless lines and bottomless smells. Never let it be said that we don’t love you.

  • Our first segment, recorded about five hours into the first day of PAX, and already we’re bitching about lines. We were so young. We skimmed the Expo Hall and bring all the “oh hey, look at that” action right to you! Mike talks about his crushing defeat in the Dominion tournament, and I promise that this is not the last you’ll hear of it.
    [00:00:36 – 00:14:20]
  • Technically Day 2, but first we talk about the rest of Day 1. The Adventures, now with bonus time travel! We test drove a ton of indy games (okay like twelve) and tell you all about them because that’s probably at least part of the reason you’re listening to this. The PAX 10, there is some awesome to be had here. Borderlands 2 disappoints us terribly in that we never get the chance to touch it, and this is but the first of many Borderlands-themed disappointments ahead.
    [00:14:28 – 01:05:15]
  • Having completely failed to calculate in the fact that we’d be out of our hotel room by Sunday morning, the remainder of the podcast comes to you LIVE from OUR HOME and about A WEEK LATER. This is the kind of cutting-edge hard-hitting procrastination you’ve come to expect from The Adventures of Jet Wolf & Ultrace. We finish up Day 2 and plunge headlong into Day 3, where we demo/watched as many games as our bleary eyes could handle. Even all these days later, some of them have us ridiculously excited.
    [01:05:22 – 01:54:14]
  • The Final Round, in keeping with our theme, is about PAX. We both get kinda nitpicky, then spend the rest of the time talking about PopCap’s Wallnut hat. Because seriously guys, this Wallnut Hat. Oh my god.

Episode 7: Won’t Somebody Please Hug Chris Traeger?

Episode 7: Won't Somebody Please Hug Chris Traeger?

This week we thought about going with a theme then completely failed to do so. It’s the first of many failures this week, but they’re not all ours. For shame, Walking Dead. For shame.

  • Television is back! Well actually no, it’s nearly summer and all TV is going away, but for us it’s like so totally back! New hardware has flicked a spark at the cold pilot light of our love and we’ve been going through TV shows like a demonic lawnmower grinding through the tall grass of overgrown souls. (That is quite possibly the strangest marriage of imagery I’ve ever written.) We talk about how mass consumption of TV seasons can alter your relationship to the show and how that applies to our recent marathon of The Walking Dead and the long-ago marathon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Plus we say goodbye for now to Parks & Rec, but it’s never far from our heart.
  • The Avengers has got Mike to thinking, and he has a burning question that can wait no longer: Could Wolverine beat the Hulk? A question this important requires no small amount of thought, and oh, the thought we give it. You will believe a couple can get into way too much detail about how to kill Wolverine.
  • The Final Round, where once again Mike makes a one-off comment that brings the entire thing to a screeching halt. Oh, Mike. (And yes I know we consistently say that one guy’s name wrong, I don’t wanna hear it.)
