Rebel FM
We play games and talk about them, our lives, and how the two intersect. Usually. And there are jokes.
Rebel FM Thanksgiving in July Short-tacular! Let's get this out of the way: it's a short show this week, and the sound quality is not great. Rather than skip a week due to some tomfoolery and shenanigans, we decided to sack up and record another of our diner-table podcasts. It's a long round of what we've been playing where we talk about the Uncharted 2 beta, Point Lookout, the new Fallout 3 DLC, and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and then it's on to a few letters. This is NOT episode 23, so you've still got a couple of weeks to get in those theme song entries kiddos. Slim vaginas to you and yours.

This week's music, in order of appearance:

Blue Spanish Sky - Chris Isaak

The Dancer - PJ Harvey

Rebel FM Game Club - Hitman: Blood Money - Episode 2 We are like a well oiled machine! That murders people for money!

That sounded less creepy in my head.

We're back with round two of our Game Club series on Hitman: Blood Money! For this episode, we covered acts 5-7: A New Life, The Murder of Crows, and You Better Watch Out. Again, the video below covers some of the possible exploits that we cover this ep. If you want your comments or email read on next week's show, be sure to get them in by Monday afternoon.

Rebel FM Episode 22 - 06/17/09 Every time we try to do a low-key short show, we seem to find weird (and non-sequitur) reserves of energy. It's the usual three man love fest (wait) this week as Anthony Gallegos, Tyler Barber and I (Arthur Gies) talk about how weird it is for us to love a golf game, leaks in gaming media (of which we are apparently not immune!), and end with letters. That ask about poop. May the Goddess of the universe exchange twitter followers to bestow a fatter penis.

This week's music, in order of appearance:

All That Remains - Not Alone

Little Boots - Meddle

Turbonegro - Death From Above

Rebel FM Game Club - Hitman: Blood Money - Episode 1 Welcome back to Game Club! As previously mentioned, our new pick is Hitman: Blood Money. For our first episode we covered the tutorial and acts 1-3. If you haven't had a chance to play along yet, the video below should get you caught up in the meantime (though it certainly doesn't cover everything). For the next episode, play through and complete act 6, "You Better Watch Out", colloquially referred to as the Playboy Mansion level. Post your stories and strategies by next Monday afternoon for inclusion in Episode 2!

Rebel FM Episode 21 - 06/11/09

Welcome back! After a week off (well, sort of) from Rebel FM proper with Area5.tv’s Matt Chandronait joining Anthony, Tyler, and me as we talk about Infamous, Prototype, Red Faction: Guerilla, Tyler’s new PC erection, and then move on to the topic of motion control, which we hear you kids have opinions on. Then we finish up with letters.

This week’s music, in order of appearance:

The Reckoning - Killswitch Engage

Future Foe Scenarios - Silversun Pickups

Blood Red Summer - Coheed & Cambria

Rebel FM E3 Christmas Special Tyler, Arthur and Anthony gather to discuss some of their favorite (and least favorite) moments from 2009's E3. Apologies for the quality, we did this in a local Ihop!
