Our second episode of Order 333’s Best of 2013 starts off our Game of the Year category awards! In this episode we cover: Best Soundtrack, Best Use of Motion or Camera Controls, Best News Story, Best DLC or Add-On, Game That Should Be Made Into a Franchise, Game More Painful Than Torture and Most Emotional Game.
We go into some detail in each game and, as fair warning, if you didn’t use 2013 to play these games and plan to play them at some point please use the nominations at the beginning of each category and the focus point of the award as a deciding factor as to whether or not you should listen to that category.
Happy New Year! 2014 is upon us! We wanted to start out the year with a look back at the last beginning with an episode going over our favorite moments of Order 333 in 2013. It’s fair to assume you will get to experience the spectrum of the Order featuring classic moments, classic jokes and some never before heard moments. From Denis Dyack sharing a story about mystery pants, to Tom crying like a whale, to the best sanity events this episode will -OBJECTION! Thanks to all of our listeners for the support over the last year! Cheers to a happy, healthy and wonderful new year!
…Or at least until next week when we duke it out over the best games of 2013!
As promised last week, the discussion on the news regarding YouTube’s policy changes is here! While both Mike and Brandon are looking for an honest discussion on what is going on things get heated between the pair when they can’t get two opposing viewpoints to meet. Next up in what they have been playing Mike touches on DMC: Devil May Cry, Tom goes on a Metroid binge and Brandon races the sun.
Mike, Brandon and Tom are joined this week by Samus and Sean to talk about all of the fun new things. From video games to VGX this week’s Order 333 covers the things you love. This week Brandon may be frozen, but it’s not because it’s 60 outside. Tom cries because his Metroid doesn’t crawl. Mike wishes Miyamoto was nicer to him because he lives in the Magnited States of America. Samus crushes things with a boulder – NOT a morph ball – important distinction. Sean gets Brandon to eat his words. Oh, it’s such a perfect day!
Things get interesting when Mike, Brandon and Tom are left to record the podcast with out any guests this week. Aside from talking about Super Mario 3D World, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, XCOM: Enemy Within and other releases they devolve into talking about games from the future (not really), ask for divine intervention to prove a point (really) and Tom develops a strange new voice (definitely). We also get Isaac to restart the engines so we can get back on track in our Dead Space playthrough. All this and more in the latest (and possibly craziest) episode of Order 333.
We hope everyone has recovered from Thanksgiving and the post holiday shopping insanity! We’re back from the eating to talk about all of the new games! This week we talk about Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World, the Xbox One launch including Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 and the amazing and sadly overlooked platformer Tearaway. Have you ever heard Tom cry to the blue corn moon?
Tom may be missing, but that leaves room for new guests! This week Mike, Brandon and Samus are joined by first timers Jeff and Monica! We spend a bit of time talking about the new Playstation 4 and a smattering of launch titles: Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Contrast, Resogun and more! Amidst the new stuff we also get to talk about fun Netflix movies including cheesy horror flicks. It also felt appropriate that with the beginning of the season of gaming we also start a new segment, Tales of Retail, where Samus shares some of his retail stories that one could never imagine! Plus Tom sounds like a whale!
This week you might be wanting to throw on your engineering suit and join us for a little discussion of Dead Space in our continuing community play through. Mike, Tom, Brandon, Eric and Samus, while not having the longest list of games being played, take you on an adventure through Pokemon, Legend of Korra, Wii Fit U, and more. Before the podcast goes critical and threatens to self-destruct we continue onto the news and wrap it up with a bit of Dead Space and, well, shenanigans! All in pursuit to find the space in us!
We’re back! Brandon is missing this week, but that doesn’t stop Mike and Tom with guest Jessica from bringing all of the fun. This week we do a brief followup on Halloween, we also talk Wii Fit U and Wii Party U while Jessica clicks a bajillion cookies. Further along we announce the final winners of the Order 333’s 33 Days of Halloween contest. And if our usual game industry news talk isn’t a lot we dare to deviate into some insane news stories from around the world. All of this fun and more in this week’s Order 333!
Happy Halloween! This podcast was recorded at the end of the day on the 30th and into the early hours of the 31st. It’s almost clear that the magick of Halloween in the air did something to us as the day switched and we started to get in very fine form the further we recorded. While listening to Mike, Brandon, Tom and Eric talking about Phoenix Wright, the Stanley Parable and the news you should prepare yourself for an extra dose of insanity and random bursts of singing. This episode is the definition of trick or treat!
