The Lost Level: Episode Sixty-Seven

episode 67

Oh… Hey… It’s that time again. You know: that part where we do our podcast, because we have nothing else to do with our pathetic, miserable lives then to tell you what we think should be going on in the video game industry and Hollywood. The rest of the internet does it, so why shouldn’t we? It’s not like anyone is actually listening to us anyways. *deep sigh*

This week we give a SPOILER filled discussion of Kick-Ass 2. That title sounds like what happened to me every lunch period in high school… and during my current job’s lunch break. We also talk about the latest news in video games and movies. There’s cyber bullying (something I know about all to well) in the video game industry by stupid, jock-head fans. The Kinect is no longer required to be connected to the Xbox One, probably because even my video game console doesn’t want to look at me. Bruce Willis is tired of action movies, just like my parents are tired of me living with them. Listen now, or don’t. Whatever. You’ll probably make fun of me regardless.

Do you live in Chicago and like live entertainment? Of course you do! We are promoting the Chicago Fringe Festival, but more importantly, we want you to go see a special live recording of Our Fair City.

Our Fair City is an award-winning radio theater company based here in Chicago, and they’re producing a live show with the Chicago Fringe Festival! Their unique brand of satire targets corporate culture and consumerism, and is usually wrapped up in a dark but whimsical sense of impending doom. The show is set in a post-apocalyptic near-future, where climate change has turned the skies stormy and the landscape into a vast frozen tundra and the city of Hartford has been taken over by a totalitarian insurance company. Their live show invites you to be an audience member at the taping of a late-night variety show sponsored by the Company. The performance features live music and sound effects, and takes place on September 6th at 7:00pm, September seventh at 5:30pm, and September eighth at 8:30pm at the “Hold the Pickles” stage, at 5415 W. Higgins Ave. Tickets are $10 with a Fringe button, which is a one-time $5 fee that grants access to all Fringe shows. Find out more at ourfaircity.com!

The Lost Level: Episode Sixty-Six

episode 66

I apologize for the delay in the release of this cast, but it’s here now just for you.

Hello, and welcome to another episode of The Lost Level. It’s your weekly chance to nerd out with us. Wen enjoy it, and we hope you do too. This week we cover a wide variety of news. In games we talk about the (once?) popular World of Warcraft, to Kickstarter projects,  to indie games. In movies, we discuss every possible iteration of Hollywood being  unoriginal through reboots, remakes, sequels, and even a spinoff. We also end this discussion on a SPOILER filled analysis of The Wolverine. Come. Let’s discuss.

 

The Lost Level: Episode Sixty-Five

episode 65

 

Well, hello again. It is a time for another exciting episode of The Lost Level. With the San Diego Comic Con happening recently, we got a lot of news from that front. Adam geeks out over the X-Men, as per usual, Alex talks about his investment in the world of Warcraft, and Chris flabbergasts Alex while he explains Sharknado to him. All in all, a good time is had. Join with us in the laughter, won’t you?

Chris here, it’s been awhile since I’ve written one of this. How would you like to know our thoughts about Pacific Rim? Does it deliver giant robot orgasms? Are the creature designs up to the Del Toro standards? We tell you all about it, and if that’s not enough, we round out the cast with news in games, and movies. Listen now!

The Lost Level: Episode Sixty-Three

episode 63

Hey there, loyal Lost Level listeners. Welcome  to episode sixty-three. This week, Alex and Adam weigh in with their thoughts about the highly acclaimed The Last of Us by Naughty Dog. Also, Chris tries very hard not to blow a gasket over Microsoft doing away with their DRM policies for the Xbox One. Does he succeed? From there, we go on to the latest news in video games and movies, and Alex proceeds to make a comment that will likely get him some hate mail (particularly from Adam). What is that comment? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out!

The Lost Level: Episode Sixty Two

episode 6

It’s that time of year again. It’s like Christmas, but without all that annoying “family” stuff. Of course I can only be talking about E3, and this year was a doozy. With next gen consoles coming out this year, we see what the future of video game entertainment has to offer, and it has got us all tingly inside. Listen to what we liked (which was a lot) and what we didn’t like (significantly fewer of these things). You can just hear the excitement in our voices!

However, let’s not forget that a movie came out about some superhero. You may not of heard of him. He’s pretty underground. He goes by the name “Superman,” but he has also been know to go by the title of his latest movie: Man of Steel. We all got to watch it, but we all didn’t have similar thoughts about it. So, yeah. All in all, this is a fun episode.

 

 

E3 Podcast is Coming Your Way

E3-2013-Logo

With the first major press conference for 2013’s E3 out of the way, it is clear that there will be a lot to talk about within the next few days: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, exclusive games, pricing, release dates, EA franchises, Ubisoft franchises, Nintendo (I guess). So, keep an eye for the latest episode of The Lost Level coming out later this week, where we will get into the thick of it.

The Lost Level: Episode Fifty-Nine

episode 59

Bienvenidos to The Lost Level. Enjoy the sun, the sand, the ocean, and the gentle sound of our voices in your ears. This week, Alex and Adam talk about their experience with the remake (Reboot? Sequel?) of Evil Dead. From there, we discuss the latest news in games and movies. We have the NPDs for March to get through, as well as our take on Xbox possibly reviving “Heroes,” a TV show that took a turn for the worse during its later seasons. Furthermore, we talk about Robert Downey Jr.’s unsure career path, the future of the Star Wars franchise, and some news on our favorite TV shows. Finally, you’ll be shocked to hear what movie Adam is actually interested in going to see. So grab a beach blanket, put on some sunscreen, and don’t drink the water.

The Lost Level: Episode Fifty-Eight

episode 581

Greetings, Lost Levelers. I have gathered you all here today so that we can bear witness to episode fifty-eight of The Lost Level. An episode in which Alex and Adam recount their trials through the world of Colombia in BioShock Infinite. An episode in which we witness the fall of the once-great kingdom of Lucas Arts. An episode in which we listen to the debate of an “always online” Xbox rage forth. An episode where, sadly, we mourn the loss of Roger Ebert.

Yes, we will have the latest news in video games and movies. Yes, we will make fun of each other. Yes, a good time will be had by all. So, join me brethren (and sistren?) so that we may listen to… The Lost Level!

Seriously, though. It’s cool. You should listen.
