Secret Moon Base - Ep.023 "All Roads Lead to Poundtown"



If the header didn't tip you off, this episode is all about Borderlands 2! Seeing that all three residents of the moon base have been logging some serious hours into this lovely game over the last few weeks, it only felt natural to sit down and talk about why we love it so much! We chat about the numerous improvements, reveal our favorite NPCs, delve into the ups and downs of each playable character and maybe even bitch about the map a little.

As always, we saved the best for last with some really great listener questions which helped us round out the discussion. If you'd like to hear your question answered on the next episode, find us on Twitter: @theSMBpodcast. We do our best to answer them all; even the cartoon sex ones!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.022 "Christian Singles Mixer"


I hope this makes up for our complete lack of sex appeal.

Hey guys, check this out! You don't have to wait for an agonizing month (or two) for a fresh dose of Secret Moon Base goodness. The crew catches up on their post-PAX activities, what games they've been playing lately and discusses the positives and negatives of the horrifying yet unavoidable terror known as the console exclusive.

Lots of thoughtful listener questions this time too, which is always nice. Plus you get to hear knutaf talk about sandwiches and cranberry juice. Where am I? Heaven?!?!

If you're drinking, you'll have to pour one out for the Carol Burnett Fun Fact segment, as the well has run dry. But throw your computer or iDevice out the window just yet! Instead of silly trivia about some lady no one likes, Occam shares some movie recommendations! The man has impeccable taste so check these out, share them with your friends and you can pretend like you discovered them yourself.

Episode 022 "Christian Singles Mixer"

As a special bonus (?), our intro this time is around 13 minutes of the random crap we talk about before we start our official show. Take a peek behind the curtains and watch us get dressed, if you're into that sort of thing.

Secret Moon Base - Ep.021 "Enough To Fill a Shortbus"


It was kind of like this only the people were better looking.

A beautiful thing happened at PAX Prime this year. Late Saturday night (or early Sunday morning, depending on how you look at it), after a long day of video games and alcohol, Corduroy Turtle (me) convinced nearly everyone in hanging out at [redacted]'s house to cram into a room in the back room and record a quick podcast..... on a single Rock Band microphone.

Was this the best idea? Yes. Was it executed flawlessly? Not necessarily. Still, it turned out better than I expected and it was exciting being surrounded by a bunch of my friends. Who would that be? Well let's see - myself, knutaf, Occam's electric toothbrush, Qalamari, Magpie, mrandydixon, bbain, Law of Thermal Dynamics, Beyamor, SuperMonk4Ever, SteezyXL, Fame Designer, Wolf Girl and Colton Phillips! That's a buttload of people!

Come and listen to our impressions of PAX! Thanks again to everyone for entertaining this silly idea such a ridiculous hour.

You may find yourself turning the volume up in order to hear certain segments better but BEWARE, sometimes a jerk yells into the mic. A thousand apologies for the mic movement sound.

Episode 020 "Emotionally Vulnerable for Journey" featuring bbain & Ian Stocker!



We're back! After what seems like forever, we have returned with a very special surprise for our 20th episode. Not only did bbain make his second appearance but the creator of Escape Goat and the Soulcaster series, Ian Stocker joined us as well! Very exciting!

In this episode, much like "Dry Rub Contest", we had fun pitching game ideas to each other. Since we had a professional around this time, we got some honest feedback and insight on what it takes to actually put a game together. For instance, motion capturing live birds may be expensive and time consuming but, in the end, totally worth it. Good to know.

Episode 020 "Emotionally Vulnerable for Journey"

The intro music this time around is from the absolutely stellar Escape Goat OST. If you'd like to check out some of Mr. Stocker's wonderful games, head over to MagicalTimeBean.com or search for them on the XBLIG marketplace. They're definitely worth your time. Thanks again to Ian and bbain for joining us in the Base, especially on such short notice. We had a blast! See you all next episode!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.016 "Kingdoms of Sticklebutt" featuring bbain!



Hey there, Cblog readers! I hope you don't have any plans for the next 3 hours because we have an absolutely GIANT episode of the Secret Moon Base podcast for you this week! In the spirit of keeping our guest-streak going we invited the lovable bbain to come and chat with us about a really fun topic - BOSSES!

I should note that, because of the subject material, there are some spoilers here and there. Nothing too serious but we discuss the final bosses of Mass Effect 2, Bioshock, Tomb Raider, Super Metroid, Half-Life, Dead Space 2, Cave Story, Resident Evil 4, Chrono Trigger, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Silent Hill 2 a couple Final Fantasy games and probably a few others that are slipping my mind. Nothing terribly current but let it be known that a light spoiler blanket is draped over this whole episode. Beware!

By the way, you guys really pulled through in the question department! Seriously...so many! It took us there better part of 2 freaking hours to tackle them all. WE LOVE THAT! Huge thanks to bbain for being an awesome guest and for suggesting this weeks wonderful topic!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.015 "Twelvethy Mathousand" featuring Sean Daisy!


Whoa, an actual video game related picture? What is this...

Hey guys! The gentlemen at Secret Moon Base Headquarters have a brand new episode for you to listen to! Although Occam was unable to join us this week, we did manage to charm Sean Daisy (aka Captain Bus) into making a special guest appearance and he was simply a delight. There's really nothing quite like a well-spoken British man with a quick wit. I hope you got to work okay, Sean!

This week we went in blind, but ended up with somewhat of a topic: Mario! It turns out our guest is quite a fan of the Bros so we talked about our favorites of the series, the ingredients of a great Mario game and why it's infinitely better than LittleBig Planet. We also delve into why Wii Fit is kind of a dick and which military first-person-shooters are best for your two-year-old.

Listener questions filled up the back half and, as usual, did not disappoint. Seriously, some of these questions are so good they could probably fuel an entire episode! Thanks again, everyone!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.013 "Beyond the V-Neck" featuring Beyamor!



I'm going to come right out and say it - this could have been a disaster. Not only was it our 13th episode, but to make matters worse, we went in without a topic. Luckily, the elusive Beyamor stepped in and saved the day with his wisdom and grace. Have you heard this guy talk? After about twenty minutes I noticed I had removed my shirt and was playfully touching my lips. It's just something that happens when I hear his voice.

Jokes aside, we had a good talk. After a serious conversation about quesadillas, we moved onto video games and, more specifically, how amazing FEZ is (**SPOILER** fucking amazing!). We also mused a bit on the process of game design and the pros and cons of procedural generation. Meanwhile, Occams did his taxes and took a nap. This is ground breaking podcasting here, folks.

Of course, listener questions rounded out our discussion and, as usual, they were as thoughtful as they were intensely sexual. Great stuff guys. Of course, huge thanks to Beyamor for lending his voice and thoughts to our podcast. Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.013 "Beyond the V-Neck"

If you're behind a few episodes, you can check out our awesome new website, www.SecretMoonBase.net for our entire back catalog! Okay, "awesome" might be too strong of a word. How about functional? Yeah, functional sounds good. Anyway, keep on eye on that space and we'll spruce it up soon. See you later!   read

Secret Moon Base - Ep.012 "Hobo Wolverine" featuring Qalamari!


^ not *technically* a weapon unless tied to a brick.

Hey guys! We usually do our best to get these recorded sessions out the door and into our listeners ears the day after we record but sometimes life gets in the way. Nonetheless, this baby is trimmed, packaged and ready to be heard so do us a favor and check it out!

This episode we were lucky enough to convince long time Dtoider and former Cblog recapper Qalamari to join us in our discussion about our favorite weapons in videogames! As suspected, we had a lot of material for this episode and subsequently it ran a little long - just under 2 1/2 hours. Ha, I feel like I'm apologizing but I guess more content is always good, right?

We had a lot of laughs and talked about some weapons and games which I had long forgotten about, which was great fun. The listener questions, as usual, were fantastic and helped shed some light on facets of the topic that we totally overlooked! Thanks again, guys and of course huge thanks to Qalamari for being such a great guest!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.011 "Dan the Special Ops Guy"


What the hell, man?

Quick! Download this new episode before it gets buried by more awesome 10 things posts!

Looks like a couple of gremlins snuck into Corduroy's router last night and made recording this episode a bit of a pain. Please ignore the awkward rock music segues. Anyway, we powered through those problems and somehow managed to keep our composure. This week we discussed multiplayer games; mainly the differences between local and online.

Come listen to us talk about how people are dicks online and why you shouldn't be a dick online. We also delve into the science behind choosing a gamertag. Side note: we probably should have been called this episode "Juggalo Poon-Hound" but, you know hindsight and all that jazz. Check it out!

Secret Moon Base - Ep.011 "Dan the Special Ops Guy"
