JPG Podcast – The One Where Adam Gives Me Gold

leave a comment »

Our second episode, but Adam’s first, I break him into the format we’re setting up, I give Adam the floor and along the way we open up by discussing Kony2012 and some of its criticism, the new iPad, our first iPods and Apple Macintoshes, why pulling away from Windows wasn’t pain free for me touching on the gaming scene at the turn of the century.

We look back on PC classics such as Balder’s Gate, Half Life, Total Annihilation, Diablo, Starcraft and development delays with Starcraft 3. We also revisit Mario through Mario Portal. Having conquered gaming we discuss the Japanese version of the new Avengers trailer, then going seriously off topic with our movies into discussing who could play Steve Jobs in the movie about him.

Rounding off with mentioning Kottke.org, TV shows I don’t watch and I assumed Adam had used Pixelmator sufficiently enough to tell me how he feels about it.

In brief, a crazy, throughly geeky episode.
