Order 333 – 35 – Deep Dish of Popcorn

We have a lot of returning guests this week!  Leslie, Jess and the ever enjoyable BloodRaven make a return to talk about everything and hassle Brandon about his Lego Movie viewing habits.  With so many guests we cruise a long with a bunch of new games being played – and the usual tomfoolery (pun intended): StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, Kingdom Hearts, Phantasy Star Online, Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds, Bravely Default and so much more!

Order 333 – 34 – Brandiel

After this week’s episode I think it’s safe to say that we have had a lot of pent up craziness since the first few episodes of the year were full of purpose.  Barely a minute into the episode the brake lines are cut, the stop signs are pulled out, everyone has blue shells and it’s just madness!  That is definitely a slight exaggeration, but we definitely run the full gamut of podcast this week – from a sophisticated discussion about gaming controllers and art all of the way down to casu marzu, which if you don’t know what it is I wouldn’t recommend eating during this episode.  Just a thought!  Don’t worry though we still talk about games and things: Kingdom Hearts, Sherlock, Super Motherlode, Darknet Files, Metal Slug 3, the Dollar Shave Club and it’s all topped off with Samus’ Tales of Retail!

 

Order 333 – 33 – Triple-A Podcast

It seems fitting that the 33rd episode of Order 333 is something incredibly special!  This episode features the return of beloved special guests Phil Haymes and Denis Dyack!  The usual episode format is thrown out the window as the group starts off with a discussion on Denis’ recent university talk titled the Video Game Renaissance and then touches on topics throughout the video gaming spectrum including the status of Shadow of the Eternals.  Other topics include: comparisons to the movie industry, cloud gaming, the speculation on what Nintendo’s financial posting could mean for the rest of the industry, the economics of video games, early access games and more!  Do not miss this episode!

Order 333 – 32 – You’re Fired!

This week the Order 333 podcast starts to get back to some normalcy.  Now that 2013 is out of the way it’s time for the crew to buckle into a new year of what they’ve been playing.  Some of of the games talked about this week include: Rogue Legacy, Metal Gear Rising, Papers Please, Virtue’s Last Reward.  Later the crew uncovers a terrible secret – Tom has not seen a lot of classic movies and the first week of bet debt fulfillment.

Order 333 – 31 – GAME OF THE YEAR!

It’s time to discuss GAME OF THE YEAR!  Mike, Brandon and Tom sit down to discuss a group top ten games of the year.  There is bargaining, betrayal, surprises and tears involved to bring together a unified top ten.  Afterwards the three share their own top ten game lists and move onto predictions for gaming in 2014.

Order 333 – 29 – Order 333’s Best of 2013

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!

Order 333 – 28 – Devil’s Advocate

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.

Order 333 – 27 – The Seats Are Too Nice

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!
