  1. Awakening, 2400 Microsoft

    this is hardly a deal

    £12.95 from amazon.co.uk on disk new!
    £20.40 on sale on the marketplace
    even at 1600 points £13.60 its over retail price

  2. Hey StepTo … don’t diss the Wing Commander movie so much. It showed the world a layman’s version of “bullet time” 3 weeks before the opening of The Matrix. 🙂

  3. BStew – right on it. (begin rant)

    E!! USE THE MICROPHONE!!!!!!!!!

    Every week I’m in my car with the Zune CRANKED and the radio as well and E still trails off at the end of EVERY sentence. Why why why???

    SPEAK UP, DUDE!

    (end of rant)

  4. I am trying to narrow down the issue here….if the audio levels are low for you, are you listening on headphones? I’ve optimized the mix for headphones. Is it just e that is low? Or everyone? Let me know and I”ll really crank it up next time.

  5. good show. I’m with E about PETA they are joke, much rather donate to the Humane Society since they seem to care about helping animals more

  6. I checked out The Awakening on X Box Live Marketplace today and they had it listed at 1600 MS points. Is this the sale price till August 22nd? I hope so, cause I won’t have the MS points for purchase till next monday

  7. Great show, as always. Informative, entertaining and funny.

    I didn’t experience any audio-related problems with the initial version of the show.

    Keep it up.

  8. Electronic Arts owns the Wing Commander series since they bought Origin Systems years ago. They are also responsible for that horrible arcade game.

    WC was my FAVOURITE game when I was younger. I have all the games still and kept them completely pristine. I would love EA to put a WC team together and build a new proper game. I’ll put my name down to be on that team!

    And a new privateer 2 game would be good too:) Or just port the stuff to 360 in HD!

  9. i listen to it streaming through my 360

    the second version was better…. E still trailed off at times… i am starting to think its just the way he talks into the mic

  10. I have just finished listening to it. Nice show

    Have you posted the links to the pictures you took at the end of the show yet? I have not been able to find them!

  11. Remix is slightly better, but E is still on the low end. I listen with iPod through AUX input in car. E consistently requires cranked volume, only to have Major or Stepto return at a yell. Constantly having to up and down volume means not listening as much.
