Video Game Backlog: The Enemy Of Gamers Everywhere

If you've been keeping track of me here, on Twitter or Tumblr, you know that I'll be a first-time dad by the middle part of June of this year.  My wife and I are having a baby girl, and we have decided to name her Clementine.  I'm not going to sit here and type that we named her after Telltale's video game Walking Dead character, but I will say that by playing through all 5 episodes of the game, hearing it over and over throughout the course of 10+ hours, and seeing a helpless little 7 year old girl deal with the un-dead, it did rub off on us. It really is a sweet little girl name.  Read from that what you will.  I also am obligated to say "I love you" to my wife after that, because my wife is totally on board with that name.  Not only is she on board, she loves it and thinks it's sweet.  There is no word yet on the middle name just yet, but we're working out the details on a short and sweet middle name. Any ideas? Send them my way.

My name is Justin and my wife's name is Jennifer.  Two of the most common 1980's names there are.  Some people want us to do a "J" name.  Other people are glad we DIDN'T do a "J" name.  Some people we tell aren't on board with Clementine (or Clem, or Clemmy).  And to all of those people I say:  1) She is my daughter.  2) She is Jen's daughter.  3) She will know how to use her biting words and will sling phrases around with the best of them on the playground.  I fully expect her to grow up to be a stand-up comedian.  And although stand-up comedians do sometimes get picked on (it fuels their material), they do eventually grow up and have their own HBO specials and make millions of dollars.

TGR Episode 13 - Ramblings, Fun Times, and Hot Coffee


Hey guys, hope you enjoyed all of the panels from last year's Gearbox Community Day. We're only a few days away from the huge day, and already my cockles are already tingling with excitement. That means we are just that much closer to the Borderlands 2 release and launch party. I've got a couple of good friends coming in from out of town, so I didn't really have a lot of time to put the show together this week. Enjoy though, it's mostly just ramblings and a few stories.

On today's Twisted Gamer Radio:


- The Bioshock Song
- Fez Developer Won't Fix His Game
- Things I'm Playing And Shit I'm Doing
- Fucked Up News:  Kid Has Heart Attack After Call of Duty Gaming Session

Gearbox Community Day 2011 - Borderlands Panel


We're only a few weeks away from the second Gearbox Community Day on Sept. 15th, and what better way to get pumped up and excited for the panels and the Borderlands 2 launch party extravaganza than to go back and listen to last year's Borderlands panel.  If you missed out on all of the previous panels from that day, you can click these links to go back and listen (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Borderlands, Brothers In Arms: Furious 4, and Duke Nukem Forever) but for now enjoy the long, gazillion gun-filled panel for Borderlands.

Now there is no rhyme or reason to which order they'll go up in, so you better check back in with the podcast feed to get updated.  I have a feeling that the game that's getting the sequel and launch party will go up last.

So sit back, relax, and take in all the loot chest filled goodness of the Borderlands panel.

Gearbox Community Day 2011 - Aliens: Colonial Marines Panel


We're about a month out from the second Gearbox Community Day on Sept. 15th, and what better way to get pumped up and excited for the panels and the Borderlands 2 launch party extravaganza than to go back and listen to last year's panels.  I'll eventually put up all of the panels for the games talked about over the course of that day (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Borderlands, Brothers In Arms: Furious 4, and Duke Nukem Forever) but for now enjoy the dark, scary, and xenomorph filled panel of Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Now there is no rhyme or reason to which order they'll go up in, so you better check back in with the podcast feed to get updated.  I have a feeling that the game that's getting the sequel and launch party will go up last.

Due to some legal reasons (at the time), I had to edit out the audio for the gameplay demonstrations (left the recorder running).  Since it's been over a year and the demo shown off for Aliens: Colonial Marines has since been shown off publicly (you can head over to IGN to check it out if you want), I still don't know yet if it's okay to post that stuff. I'm also just lazy and don't want to go back into my archive and hunt down my original un-edited file, so you'll just get stuck with this one (just in case it's still not "okay" to have that gameplay audio and commentary).

Sit back, relax, and take in all the alien goodness of the Aliens:  Colonial Marines panel.

Gearbox Community Day 2011 - Brothers In Arms: Furious 4 Panel


We're about a month out from the second Gearbox Community Day on Sept. 15th, and what better way to get pumped up and excited for the panels and the Borderlands 2 launch party extravaganza than to go back and listen to last year's panels.  I'll eventually put up all of the panels for the games talked about over the course of that day (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Borderlands, Brothers In Arms: Furious 4, and Duke Nukem Forever) but for now enjoy the entertaining panel of Brothers In Arms: Furious 4.

Now there is no rhyme or reason to which order they'll go up in, so you better check back in with the podcast feed to get updated.  I have a feeling that the game that's getting the sequel and launch party will go up last.

Sit back, relax, and take in all the co-op mayhem that is the Brothers In Arms: Furious 4 panel.
