Also, Foster is a shit beer. Don't drink it.

Most people on Destructoid like to inform its population on their gaming set up with a simple yet efficient blog with pictures to enlighten. Here at RC, we have decided to take it up a notch and give you guys the cribs episode you wish MTV would air, with the kind of guy that knows he isn't interesting but goes to drastic measures to prove otherwise.

To all who know us here at Refused Classification, you would know the kind of eccentric guy Mr Dillinger is. For those who don't...that's probably a good thing.

Dillinger has recently got himself into a job he hates, yet has to do in order to support his current lifestyle. This up-and-coming series is here to present that lifestyle and how it so vividly differs from the norm. On the rare days that he has off work, he fills his time with Xbox, mates and a video camera.

While it may not seem that entertaining we challenge you to get through this pilot without being humored.

Sorry for the delay folks (has DTOID been down for anyone else over the past 4 days?).
But finally, as it was foretold in the stars, the first groundbreaking series of Refused Classification comes to an end. BUT WHY?? Did we run out of budget? did personal disputes (aka, punch-ons) break apart the RC team? Was the show itself finally refused classification and pulled off the air? The truth is much more shocking than you could ever believe, so download the latest episode to hear us complain about, you guessed it, banned games! We also discuss upcoming for 2010 releases, gaming news that doesn't exist yet but is sure to in the near future, our picks for game of the year, and a teary farewell to all of our lovely listeners through the Listener Questions.

So if you're lame enough to have missed out on the CULTURAL PHENOMENON that is RC, then it's not to late! JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON NOW SO YOU CAN SAY YOU ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE YOU LISTENED TO US RIGHT FROM SEASON 1!!!! In other words, from all the RC team, thanks for listening and keeping us going over the past year, have a Merry Christmas, a great New Year and see you all in 2010!

A long, long time ago three aussie dickheads created a podcast, an alcohol fuelled, rage filled, 90% curseword enriched mess, and it was good.

But sadly, all things must come to an end, and this podcast must come to an end too. The most handsome member of the group (that's me, PuppyLicks) is leaving the country for a good 10 month period, with the less-handsome members (DanMazkin and MrDillinger) leaving some time after that.

Are you sad yet? Climbing the walls in anxiety? Well FEAR NOT! We shall all return to the land of banned videogames and shitty public transport systems in August 2010, and barring any "unforseen consequences" we shall be back into our podcasting swing not too long after that. We may even record an episode or two on the run during our worldwide gallavant. BUT ENOUGH OF THAT!

TOMORROW NIGHT at 9PM Melbourne time (GMT+10), we will be recording our final RC episode for 2009, we will be talking about what fun we've had over the last year, what games we've been playing, more fucking games getting banned, AND we plan to make our most drunken episodes look like elizibethan tea parties compared to this. AND WE WANT YOUR HELP!

How can you contribute, you ask? Why that's easy. Leave us a shiiiiitload of comments on our show post, spam our forums with abuse, and most importantly, be on skype at at 9PM Melbourne time (GMT+10) Wednesday night the 2nd of December and add puppylicks or refused.classification and join in the shenanegans!

Be warned, we may be a little tipsy. Like, Saxton Hale level tipsy.

We will not be recording at night no more, we will be recording during the afternoon now. Keep ya posted.

Drinking beer, we're doing it wrong.

A long time ago, we here at Refused Classification realized that we swear a hell of a lot. In an attempt to curb our foul language while recording we created the You Swear, You Lose episode. We failed miserably, swearing continued and we all got smashed and the show was a wonderful mess.

So, we're doing it all over again!

So listen in as we demolish a bottle of Canadian Club, be belligerent and insult eachother's mothers. We will also talk about videogames too, ha HA!

What we chat about;
- Games of the week.
- Modern Warfare 2
- And remember, no rushing.
- Russia hates videogames
- Bible on mah ecksbawcks!!>!?
- The RC Spotlight, game endings
- Listener questions and drunken rage

RC - Your typical Australian males.

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you happen to be a regular listener to our show, you may have picked up on the little fact that we tend to swear. A lot. F-bombs, C-bombs, its all part of the foundation of our dialogue as part of being hardened Australian males. Despite this though, we understand that this kind of language does not exactly appeal to everyone (mothers, young children, nuns, and so on), so we here at Refused Classification offer a solution, a way for everyone to enjoy the show without the need of being assaulted by profanties every 25 seconds.

And how will we do this you ask? By Censorship? Pfft, Fuck that, this is Refused Classification! I'm talking about You Swear You Lose!! The concept is that for any time someone swears on the show they have to take a shot of scotch/rum/methylated spirits as punishment. Last time we did this Dillinger couldn't stand up by the end of the show, so its probably something you don't want to miss this time around.

Amidst the drinking, swearing and chaos, we will be discussing:

- Modern Warfare 2's highs and lows
- shooting people in Russain airports
- boycotts that don't mean anything
- countries other than Australia that ban games
- good and bad game endings
- and Religion (oh the joy!!).

As always we'll be answering listener questions if we can still manage to speak english by that point, so post ya comments below or head over to the RC forum thread to tell us what you really think (or just post some tits, either way).

Cheers Fuckos!

It's crack I tells ya! CRACK!!!

Well it's episode 16, people. They all said we'd never make it, they all said we were crazy, there are probably still right but there's a show to do dammit.

This week we talk about Bordelands, a lot. We discuss shitty Videogame related TV shows and answer no listener questions because nobody asked any listener questions.

Show notes:
I'll start writing show notes when you all start asking listener questions. You scratch my back, I scratch yours. Capiche?
