Grips of sinus medication and large quantities of alcohol do not mix well with the duties of a podcast host… However, despite my controlled substance handicap I manage to form some complete sentences and the rest of the team picks up the slack this week for another glorious addition to the show. As the titles indicates, there’s a lot of discussion on “The Sony Situation” and Scott and Jorge go krazy over Mortal Kombat. We miss out on the chance at some Portal 2 discussion, but that’s all well and good, because we’ve got a solution to that coming this week! More on that later, but in the meantime enjoy Golgocast Season 2 Episode 20!!!!
So, I once again I was forced sit this week’s episode out due to work… then to top it off I didn’t get a chance to listen to it this morning before posting, so I really have no idea what happens on it. As a result, I’m going to replace this area, where I’d normally include a synopsis and some witty banter, with this exert from H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu. Please enjoy it… oh yeah, and the podcast too.
“The older matters which had made the sculptor’s dream and bas-relief so significant to my uncle formed the subject of the second half of his long manuscript. Once before, it appears, Professor Angell had seen the hellish outlines of the nameless monstrosity, puzzled over the unknown hieroglyphics, and heard the ominous syllables which can be rendered only as “Cthulhu” ; and all this in so stirring and horrible a connexion that it is small wonder he pursued young Wilcox with queries and demands for data.”
Nintendo’s next generation Wii console — currently codenamed “Project Cafe” — could land later this year, and we’re told will DEFINITELY be playable at this year’s E3… sure. Regardless, the gaming worlds is all a flutter as new details and “possible” diagrams of the machine’s build for have leaked. One of NeoGaf‘s finest, has posted the following several images, which showcase some of the rumored features Nintendo‘s been hinting at. These include: controller displays, 1080p output with possible support for stereoscopic 3D, and will utilize AMD’s R700 GPU. Over at IGN, there’s a complete breakdown of all the known facts, and they’re already speculating at a $350.00 to $400.00 price tag. Before you start balking at the price eep in mind, Nintendo wants to win back the hardcore crowd, and to do that you need POWER (some pun intended). A $400.00 sticker price could certainly get you that. Pics after the jump…
