What’s inside The Orange Box? Sex. Sex and heroin. And with those contents firmly tucked in our pants, we embark upon Podtoid 34, in which two editors of Destructoid (plus one Weekly Geek) cover some news, answer some questions and have ourselves a good ol’ fashioned Valve love-in. And the show being what it is, it naturally includes some Orange Box spoilers. That being said, have yourself a big heaping pile of show notes!
– We Love the Orange Box: The gang talks up one of the most highly rated releases of all time, proposes marriage to cubes. Anthony loves Adam Baldwin — like, really loves him. Episodic gaming: good, great or Lon Chaney?
– Okami drops on the Wii: Do demigod wolves like waggling their paws? “You Know” wears out its welcome. The flood of awful ports on the Wii makes us hate ourselves.
– British Intelligence gets into in-game advertising: British, you say? Where’s Jim Sterling’s favorite four-letter word when we need it? Gaming as recruitment takes a wild ride through the depths of tangentia and turns into point-of-view and serious games. Where’s the Das Boot of gaming? Nazis!
– GAMES MAKE IT THINK SMART LIKE BOOK: New book claims gaming is food for thought, makes us better people and get us girlfriends. Maybe not that last part.
– Reader questions!
Winner of this week’s reader question $25 dolla billz y’all extravaganza is Mike Hawk, less for his silly name and more for the question that kicked up a lot of talk between the lot of us. Drop a comment with your email address and we’ll hook you up.
