RadioRadar podcast 048: Overpowered and undermanned

There aren't many reviews or previews to talk about, so we focus on the things that matter: overpowered weapons. Also, the movie Surf Ninjas. That's not all, though--we're also saying goodbye... to a friend.

Also, don't forget to join us in this month's Game Club as we tackle Tim Schafer's Psychonauts. 

Hosts: Hollander Cooper, Tom Magrino, Lucas Sullivan, Ryan Taljonick, Greg Henninger
Question of the week: What's your worst multiplayer memory? Answer to win a free game, or some other awesome thing!
Intro song by Danny Baranowsky

    I say that my worst memorys on multiplayer are mostly when my bro looks upon my screen and cheats by always knows where i am and what my inventory is full of .....or a second memory would be this one time when i was playing KID ICARUS: UPRISING on my 3DS (best 3DS game ever) and i decided to play online I got stuck with a team of newbs and I lost like so much chances for hearts that day (hearts are the money in KID ICARUS: UPRISING) at the end i decided to quite and enter a new room but it was just so ANNOYING!!

    In case no one mentioned it, just to depress you further - Leslie Nielsen died last year. I don't know where you went to fact check in the episode Tom, but it needs updating!

    If by "last year" you mean November 28, 2010.

    About ten years ago my brother and I would play Halo co-op together. My brother had just discovered that re-spawning in Halo could be exploited to cause a near Hitler-esque level of trolling to one player. We would be playing and if I died, he would keep walking backwards into walls, and melee killing me when I spawned in front of him. No matter how much screaming and spittle spewed from my lips, his glee could not be contained. When we finally got a Warthog, he would finally let me in (after running me over a few times). But he would then drive immediately off a cliff, angling the jeep so that even if I tried to get out, it would only cause me to die faster. He would keep a single grunt alive, just so he could prevent me from spawning. He would constantly kill Captain Keyes, causing the marines to endlessly attack us until we both died. I love the guy, but holy shit....I still get rage sweats thinking about those times.

    I had a lovely experience with a 10 year old who refused to help the team if we didn't do his homework over voice chat for math. It was fractions week apparently and little Billy was confused by the concept.. The group pretty much laughed him off the game.

    This was a really great episode, really hilarious, and YES cooper you ARE getting better XD. Bye Brian, we'll miss ya and i GUESS Nugget XD and yeah i listened to the end before it was cool, Lucas and Coop is tied in my opinion. Warning, Incoming Rant. *SIGH* Phil Fish, he's a good man and has good meaning at heart, but he has one fatal flaw and thats his arrogant attitude that cant take criticism at all and cant distinguish between Bullshit and criticism. I wasnt aware of the whole Nintendo business but it frankly disappoints me that Phil actually thinks there will ever be a different reaction and that he thinks he's actually proven anything. The fact that he cancelled Fez 2 because of his attitude and cant understand what criticism is, shows what a man child he really is. End Rant Mmmm Salt and Vinegar chips :P As for QOTW: Worst Multiplayer Memory? I mentioned this before but Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is a massive bullshit broken game that my brother punched our TV and broke it, and then, it happened AGAIN with our second TV and so i banned him from playing that game. As for my own personal experience, French servers in Gmod, nuff said. I have never been in a more uncomfortable situation and been so insulted in my entire life D:

    QOTW- I used to be way into Team Fortress 2, and I played it almost everyday. I had just gotten my internet speed upgraded from super shitty to slightly less shitty, so I could finally play online AND be on voice chat at the same time! So I bought a decent mic, and got on to a random game. I started chatting with my fellow players, all super friendly and happy to play (try finding a game like that today :P). One particular person, however, was rather strange. There was a girl with him, and at first she was just in the background, talking, but eventually I started hearing strange sounds from his mic. Low groans, high moans, and many more interesting sounds. So I asked what he was doing, and he replied to me, exactly: "What the fuck do you think I'm doing, I'm getting a blowjob while playing TF2, bitch." Having just learned what a blowjob was a few days before, my 12 year old self was APPALLED. So, naturally, I left the game and haven't played a proper game since, simply because going back on brings some *shivers* very odd memories back.

    Since it didn't have to be videogames, I will mention the time I played laser tag for the first time at a birthday party. I was 6 and as I was running around and the birthday boy was about to shoot me and i put my hand over his gun. He said I was cheating did, I argued I did not. He told his mom and everybody else that I was a cheater. So, I got in trouble and was then made fun of and left the party crying. This was one of the reasons why I went through a dark, downward spiral that I only got out of in the last 3 years. For a videogame story. I play something called Pokemon Online which is where competitive Pokemon battle are played. Now, Pokemon is one of the haxiest game ever where a bullshit critical hit or a 10% poison effect activates can be so irritating. So, whenever that happens and it cost me a match I curse like a sailor, make angry hand gesticulations, think about kneeing my computer, and then think about how much I want to punch my opponent in the throat

    People say Mario Party destroys friendships but for me it actually did. I went to my friend's house when I was younger and along with 2 other people we sat down to play Mario Party. Essentially the game didn't go well for him. My friend got screwed on literally every opportunity. After that he never really talked to me again.
  • thombilous - July 27, 2013 10:57 p.m.

    I never owned an N64, all my friends did. I have very vivid memories of being killed over and over again by remote mines on Goldeneye on the Dam level. Over and over and over. It was not fun.
  • TaserLime - July 27, 2013 7:51 p.m.

    the tetris multiplayer is pretty bad, am i right guys? hahah sirtet
  • rcarrasco121 - July 27, 2013 7:34 p.m.

    My worst multiplayer experience was the first time I played multiplayer in a game. It was in LittleBigPlanet 2, and the moment someone tried talking to me I freaked out and unplugged my PS3. Don't judge me.
  • F4G1TR0N - July 27, 2013 9:26 a.m.

    Good luck to Brian and the intern! I remember watching Brian in some videos haha. I also happen to love the end segments, gives an insight into what a normal day in the office is for you guys! It usually is a toss up between Tom and Lucas to be honest!. Now for the QOTW! I have no answer! I usually don't run into nothing I can't handle! Keep up the show guys! 50 spectacular soon! WOOOOO!

    I was playing Team Fortress 2 on a server that allowed you to "Roll the Dice". That meant that you could type RTD into the chat box and get a random effect on your character. So, I rolled the dice. It said that I rolled "Explode". I watched in horror as my Pyro's appendages went flying everywhere.
  • EAC73 - July 27, 2013 8:24 a.m.

    Sounds more awesome than bad

    QOTW -- I'm a huge DBZ fanboy so when my Big Bro borrowed Budokai Tenkaichi 2 from his friend, I was hooked! I would play it the whole day. Finished half of SP mode in 3 days. Now, me and my Lil Bro one day decided to have a DBZ multiplayer marathon. For some reason I kept losing to him which really pissed me off; which made me hit my Lil Bro. MY other Big Bro saw me, took out the disk and smashed it into pieces and told me to enjoy..............................worst month of my multiplayer gaming life. :/
