Mega Ultra Blast Cast Ep.17


Episode 17 of the Mega Ultra Blast Cast introduces a brand new giveaway segment where we read out download codes for the benefit of our lovely listeners! Delaney shows some brief emotion and I try to negotiate the longest playlist the podcast has yet seen. We also answer a listener-submitted question about the gaming worlds in which we would most like to live, talk about the meme centre that was this year’s Oscars ceremony and dissect the Titanfall beta in preparation for the full game’s imminent launch. Enjoy!

If you feel so inclined, go for a run, take a scenic drive or just curl up on the couch and play some games while you listen to the opinions of three Sydneysiders dealing with the city’s terrible muggy weather.

You can play the whole episodes right off this page if that’s what you’re into:

The first of a number of indications for the night that Dallas Buyers Club just might be worth seeing.

Oscars 2013 Reactions – Almost Live!

So I missed the live broadcast of the Oscars this morning on account of work, but I’ve been pretty successful in keeping a media blackout going, so I shall now watch the recorded version and write my thoughts on the big awards here as I see them, then post them tonight. How exciting!

Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz

This one was arguably pretty open but I was still surprised that the favourite, Tommy Lee Jones, didn’t win. Very pleasantly surprised, that is, because Christoph Waltz was AWESOME in Diango Unchained and I had pretty much assumed that the Academy would ignore his turn because he had already won quite recently. Two wins from two nominations!
