In this very special episode of GameHounds, Alex P. Keaton says goodbye to his sister Mallorie… Wait, that’s not right. Sorry. Channeling 80s sitcoms again.
In this very special episode of GameHounds, Edie Sellers and Cooper Hawkes welcome a guest host, Mrs. LeftyBrown of The Married Gamers podcast. They talk about dead celebrities and colored poo. No really. That part’s true.
Really. Stop laughing.
When not explaining exactly what blue food coloring does to your body and Mrs. LeftyBrown weakly attemping to assert that her listeners are better than our listeners, they also delve deep into the last week of gaming industry news.
Topics and links (and how YOU can make Mrs. LeftyBrown eat her words) after the jump…
- Sony is looking for players to join its USA and European beta test for Playstation Home. But it’s not going to be easy to get in. In the US, you’ll have to be active in the PSN and Playstation Store and download the Home theme for your PS3. In Europe, it will be invite only.
- Microsoft says downloadable content has accounted for $240 million in revenue, with $180 coming in the last 12 months. Does your wallet feel lighter?
- Some PS3 owners say the recent 2.42 firmware update has caused their consoles to stop playing Blu-Ray disks, erased save data, and made it unable to connect to the internet. Sounds like yet another update is coming soon.
- Bioware says it’s considering bringing Mass Effect to the Nintendo DS. Oh what a conundrum for poor Hawkesy!
- The owner of the gyrpscopic technology of Wii’s new MotionPlus dongle says Nintendo doesn’t own the exclusive rights and that other unnamed companies have expressed an interest. We all know who they are, but the question is whether we’ll see the Xbox and PS3 dongles for this or next generation consoles.
- Have you fallen over yourself to purchase the Gears of War 2 Lancer edition pre-order from Amazon? You know, the one with the full-size lancer replica? Well, you’re one of the rare, smart ones because Amazon reports they’ve been flying off the virtual shelves since coming on sale on Friday.
- Fable 2 achievements have been released, and if they’re accurate, they offer an insight into how fun this game may be. Also, they show how you’ll have to Fable yourself silly to get them all.
Don’t forget to check out Playpalooza 08, Platform Nation’s upcoming charity and gaming marathon on August 14! It’s going to be huge and it’s a great cause! The Married Gamers have thrown down the gauntlet to GameHounds, and we’re just not going to stand for that. Give till it hurts.
