Iron Man 2 Villain and Futurama Returns!

10 06 2009

Ladies and gentleman, feast your eyes on this first look of Mickey Rourke as the villain Whiplash from the upcoming Iron Man 2!  A little different look than The Wrestler, aye?  I, for one, am very excited about this film.  Unfamiliar with the character?  Check out the WIKIPEDIA PAGE!

Is a long haired shirtless man not quite doing it for you?  Then you may be happy to know that Futurama is returning!  Apparantly Comedy Central is going to air 26 new episodes in 2010!  So two exciting pieces of information, yet both of them don’t come out for a year.  That, fellow blog readers, is called being a party pooper.

#13 – Gamer Lounge Episode – Touchy Apprentices

23 09 2008

It’s finally here!  A new episode featuring both Larry and I!  If I do say so myself, this is our best episode yet.  We wrote out some notes to follow during the show, things flow smoothly, and there were no sound hiccups that I could find.

Some topics are Spore: Origins and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the iPod touch/iPhone, free MMO subscription models, Diablo 3 before Starcraft 2, Wrath of the Lich King release date, Warhammer Online, Smallville, Marble Blast Ultra, Star Wars TV series, Larry’s new mac, and more!

Did I mention we actually had a little bit of viewer/listener input this time?  I read one of the comments on the blog dealing with the free subscription model.  That could be you next time!  So leave a comment or send an email to gamerloungepodcast@gmail.com





Influential Exponential! – Gamer Lounge Episode

17 09 2008

So I’m sure many of you are wondering, “Why is there a crashed Ferrari here?”  The answer is for two reasons!  Numero Uno, Castle Crashers is a topic on this particular episode.  Numero Dos, is because The Gamer Lounge has gone under a sort of crash, if you will, due to school.  Because of this, the last three (I think that’s right) episodes have been only me.  However, Larry and I should be recording together again this weekend.  As Larry would say, “Woot!”  😀

 

But enough of that, let’s talk about what’s on this episode!  Castle Crashers, Tropic Thunder, Star Wars Clone Wars, Orange Box, Watchmen, new iPods, Genius and so much more!  Reviews, Previews, and thoughts and rants.  As always, this week’s episode is worth a listen!

A Message From Luke!

25 08 2008

So this definitely isn’t the Gamer Lounge’s longest or, for that matter, best episode and I don’t want to sully our reputation. So what do I do? Put out “A Message from Luke!” 😀 As you can probably tell from the title, I’m alone in this episode as well. However, that does not mean it’s a waste of your time! I cover Assassin’s Creed, Castle Crashers, Fighting Games, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Knights of the Old Republic, and Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War!

Timed Buttons Presses Unleashed!

15 08 2008

As you may know, I am super excited about the upcoming Star Wars game The Force Unleashed. However, after hearing today that to kill bosses you need to successfully complete a series of timed button presses, I’m not so sure anymore. If this is true, hopefully it isn’t a make or break deal. If I have to start the whole level over again because I didn’t hit one button right, (download the Bourne Conspiracy demo if you want to experience that! 🙂 ) that would suck!

Apparently the boss fights are relatively slow going as well. I don’t mind this so much though considering in the movies the fights were always long and drawn out as well. But again, the button pressing sounds stupid. I guess I would have to try it first before I could really say anything, but the thought of bringing down a giant rancor with my upgraded force lightning sounds way cooler to me!

On a final note Xbox Magazine rated it a 7.5, which isn’t great, but still pretty good.  We shall see I guess.

Actually, on another even more final note, they OXM gave Castle Crashers an 8.5!  Nice!  For once this issue has reviews super early!  Now if only the demos weren’t always a few months old…
