GWJ Conference Call Episode 49

Conference Call

Call of Duty 4, Journalistic Integrity With Special Guest Jeff Green, Playing Lair RIGHT, Our Contest Winner and more!

We are one show away from the big 50th episode extravaganza. We didn't phone it in this week though, not with Mr. Jeff Green co-hosting the show! We talk about journalistic integrity, old man rapping, ask Jeff plenty of your questions and a whole lot more. We also announce the winner of our latest contest! Just a note, the first couple minutes with Jeff sound a bit rough, but it clears up pretty quick.

World in Conflict is going to be a great time waster. I played in Beta, I played the Demo and I enjoyed my time with it. I can see this being a game I come back to from time to time just to experience a little Cold War carnage.

Great show guys. Awesome questions and Jeff Green sounds like a pretty cool guy to speak with. Look forward to the next show and the contest winners. *shakes the lucky rabbit's foot*

Hey! I got one of my questions read! Its like I talked to Jeff Green by-proxy! *swoon*

Thread of The Week

(1) How real do you like your games? - Duoae

I could have sworn it was about Sony's "How to play Lair right you noobs!" thread

Naughty, cut and paste

Good show. No asking about ye olde donkey punch for Shawn Elliot, though. *sniff* I'll get over it.

Hey guys, actually you can trade PC games. http://www.goozex.com is what I used to trade and get some older PC games for myself. I don't know how they stack up to other trade companies, but they've been pretty good when I used them.

Feel the vibration-bration!

I'll admit that I just started getting into holding down the buttons to choose weapons and plasmids as I was on the Frolic level. I'm also a real rat bastard to those Big Daddies now that I can be.

Death threats from Rednecks sounded so familiar I wondered if the person who wrote it worked with me at some point (I worked at an EB and the same thing happened over the same game, but without the "honkey" part). Even the follow-up call with the death threats!

I would've entered the contest myself but I took last week off and by the time I was caught up on my podcasts the deadline had passed.

Whoot I got mentioned! I've been validated as a human being and can now die fulfilled.

Great conference call guys... gotta love how "Quasi" became all echoey when Elysium said it.... Sounded appropriately cool.

[edit]Oh and i appreciate you guys trying to include me in the podcast considering you didn't ask any of my questions, nor did i write an email or make good thread this week (my only thread was mostly overlooked ) but you don't have to do it.... i'm a grown man.... i can take rejection..... mostly.

Link fixed.

Nah, the thing I hated was if you switched to a weapon to discover that you were in process of switching ammunition the last time you used it only to find you need to use another type of ammunition against the baddies. So in other words, you have to load and then reload on the fly.

I'd never heard of Team Fremont or their podcast until the brief mention in the GWJ call this week. I'm listening to it now, and I'm enjoying it, except for their annoying habit of doing entire segments while talking over music. Please never do this.

"Are we actually talking about this?"

Maybe I'm just jealous because I have to wear dress clothes to work every day.

My boss already thinks I'm enough of a smart ass.

Great Podcast as usual, Jeff Green was an awesome addition to it this week, I am a big Jeff Green fan.

Break out the ascot and smoking jacket. You'll be his boss inside of a month.
