    AustinMates Episode 6 - Reintroducing Hideo Kojima and His Ego

    Have you been waiting with bated breath to find out if all our E3 predictions came true? Well this is NOT the episode for you! But, we do talk about all five of the E3 conferences and discuss pretty much every game revealed, minus the EA sports titles because...we just don't care. 

    We finally get to talk about Sony Bend's new game, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! There was so much exciting news, and major changes from established franchises. This E3 was weird in a lot of ways, but a fantastic year for the show in others. Join us as we talk our way through it, and give our impressions of the games, as well as Sony's Playstation Experience 2016. 

    The Last Guardian, Days Gone, Breath of the Wild, God of War, Steep, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and the list just goes on. Come for the thoughtful insights, stay for the Kojima bashing!

    BOX OFFICE POISON: EPISODE 134

    Every now and again, schedules don't quite line up and we brave few venture out into the desolate cold to soldier on and bring you all this podcast about movies and movie things. That is to say, Jonny and Mike couldn't make it so Karl, Jon, and Stan got together and made a compact lil episode. Our Spotlight movie is Popstar and then we cover Warcraft, Where to Invade Next, and Spy before getting into a great batch of listener mail.

    If you've got any questions you want answered send them over to crosstawk@gmail.com or to Twitter (@crosstawk). Then head over to iTunes to leave us a rating and review. In two weeks we'll talk about Jonny's pick for Movie of the Month, The Congress! See you then!

    AustinMates: Episode 5 - Electronics Entertainment Expo Expectations Extravaganza

    In the final episode leading into E3 we talk about Jess' time so far with the new Fallout 4 DLC, Far Harbor. Next up was Jonathan's early impressions of Dark Souls 3, which he seems to enjoy quite a bit more than Gabe. Garett has been playing The Witcher 3, which led us to some of life's most important questions, such as: Why is Geralt of Rivera such a selfish asshole? Gabe played Picross 3D, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Bravely Default (and how broken it is), Until Dawn, and Uncharted 4. 

    After that, the main event! We make our best guesses at what awaits us at E3 2016, along with some of our more outlandish hopes. Join us as we talk about past E3 disasters and rumors that Sucker Punch is developing a PS4 exclusive Spiderman game, and then barely escape Jonathan's terrible Yves Guillemot impression.

    Box Office Poison: Episode 133

    Memorial Day Weekend means a lot of things - BBQs, no feelings of dread on Sunday night, and maybe even fireworks, but to the BOP crew, it only means one thing: CROSS-CON! This time, we were all visiting Mike in Tallahassee, FL. We had a great time (which you'll hear about next year via the Rough Draught we recorded and will be hoarding), and during all of the chaos, we managed to turn out another episode of the podcast that's all about movies and movie things!

    This time, we discuss X-Men: Apocalypse, Neighbors 2, High-Rise, The Nice Guys and more! We also go over our Movie of the Month, True Stories, but before that, we do a special round of Post Office Poison where we answer a 45-question horror movie survey sent in my one of our dear listeners!

    Have questions, comments, or concerns for the crew? Let us know via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk), and in the comments section on the site. And head over to iTunes and leave us a rating and review - it's the best way to expand the audience and show your thanks!

    Thanks for listening, everyone - we'll be back on Friday 17th!

    Rough Draught: One Night in Nashville

    It's been 12 months since Cross-Con 2015 took Karl Castaneda, Jon Rind, Mike Sklens and Jonny Metts to Nashville to hang out with Stan Ferguson, and as has become the tradition, that means it's time to listen to the episode of Rough Draught that we recorded one calendar year ago!

    This episode's pretty special, not just because we tried five all new beers, but also because we sampled Angel's Envy Rye Whiskey, a rare treat that took us way over the threshold into some kind of drunk wonderland. After a surprisingly measured and thoughtful 90 minutes of beer reviews, we descend into about 30 minutes of the kind of rowdy idiots you've come to associate with the Beer Appreciation Show.

    Want to show your support? Head on over to iTunes and leave us a rating and a review. And if you have any questions you'd like for us to answer on the next episode of Rough Draught, you can let us know via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk), or in the comments section on the site.

    Thanks for listening, guys, and be on the lookout for Cross-Con 2016's episode of Box Office Poison to go up early next week!

    AustinMates: Episode 4 - Sega Kids are Broken

    AustinMates is back! After a brief break while Gabe was on vacation we're back with our next episode and a very special guest! We're joined by our long time friend Matt Hogan. We talk about what makes a great 3D Mario game, what it's like growing up as a Sega kid (hint: it's sad.), and Bravely Second. Jonathan makes a convincing case for Dark Souls and Matt provides some of the answers we've always wanted about Elder Scrolls Online without having to actually play it.
