Rebel FM
We play games and talk about them, our lives, and how the two intersect. Usually. And there are jokes.
Rebel FM Game Club - Gun - Episode 3 It's late, but I'm happy to bring you all our wrap-up episode for our Game Club series on Gun. This week, we talk about the ending section and our overall thoughts on the game, and following our discussion, I was able to speak at length with Scott Pease, Neversoft's Studio Development Director, Chad Findley, the Project Lead on Gun, and Joel Jewitt, Neversoft's President. We talk about the origins of the game and its influences, the evolution of the gameplay, and whether we can expect a sequel any time soon. As a quick note, this interview was conducted over a teleconference call, so set your expectations for sound quality appropriately, but all in all, you're in for a treat.

Rebel FM Episode 20

This week the regular crew of Tyler, Arthur and myself are joined by's Matt Chandronait. We discuss what we've been playing, the importance of video in games coverage (and how it's changed over the years), and conclude with your letters.

We'll be doing special broadcasts -- i.e. short -- from E3 when we find the time, so pay attention to our twitter feeds and to get the latest updates.

We are also still finalizing when we're going to do our E3 meetup, and I'll be sending out a group email soon to those who have written to me.

Rebel FM Game Club - Gun - Episode 2 We're on round two of our Game Club series on Gun, as we talk about stagecoach chases, train hijackings, old-west style street justice, and wonder about the inherent violence of the local Chinese laundry (and somehow leprechauns wander into the discussion as well). We're going into a two week break between this episode and the final episode of this series, so you shouldn't have any trouble finishing it up in time. However, you should also email me (or comment) with questions for the developers of Gun by next Monday, as I should be chatting with developers before the concluding episode about the game, their thoughts on it, and answers to the questions you send in! As always, thanks for listening, and mythical genitalia to you.
