Frayed Wire X Podcast Episode 11: All Corners of the Earth

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Josh60502, JustMattPwn3r, and LostAddict1993 meet up again to record a new episode of Frayed Wire X. Do they have an idea of what they are going to talk about? No. Does that matter? Def no.

Listen in for discussions about the lack of new posts on the site, the general suckiness of Sonic the Hedgehog, upcoming gaming consoles, and the public’s inability to accept change in games like Metroid: Other M and Final Fantasy XIII.

Due to some issues retrieving the snazzy intro I introduced last episode, this one starts off right away. U mad about that?

Podcast Episode 10 – Breaking Your Soul

E3 2010 has come and gone, but Josh60502, JustMattPwn3r, and LostAddict1993 still have much to say about it. We discuss our general lack of interest in Kinect, Sony’s Kevin Butler fan service, and Nintendo’s rekindled love for the hardcore gamer (even if Zelda is looking a little shaky). After running out of topics, we fumble around for ideas and end up talking about Super Mario Galaxy 2, Sin and Punishment: Star Successor, the Final Fantasy series, and the dangers of going through an “eBay phase.” Also, we remind everyone that Death Note is indeed the greatest manga ever created.

Give us a listen and leave some feedback somehow, so that you might not have to wait months for the next podcast again.

Back With a Vengeance

October 21, 2009 3 comments

Last weekend, Josh60502 and JustMattPwn3r recorded the first real podcast episode in months. The hardcore Frayed Wire X fans might have noticed that it has been on the podcast feed for a couple of days now, but for the rest of you people, I’m here to inform you that Episode 9: Back With a Vengeance is now available for download, either on PodOMatic or iTunes. I tried some new editing techniques on the recorded file, namely some amplification and noise removal. I’m not completely satisfied with it; in fact at one point I took down the episode, edited it some more, and re-uploaded the podcast. However, I do think it is an improvement over how previous episodes have been.

Here is the description of the episode as seen on both of the previously mentioned places:

*Note*: The other two recordings Josh60502 and JoeWillBeatJohn made in addition to the District 9 review have been lost forever! Sorry, but hopefully this new full-length podcast episode will make up for them….
