Podtacular 503: Interview with Gus & Pax Prime 2015 Recap

September 14th, 2015

We’re back from our two weeks off of the podcast as we start counting down the days to the launch of Halo 5: Guardians.  While there was not much Halo at Pax aside from Warzone playable at the Xbox booth, there was plenty of things to keep us busy.  We are joined by Rebel Rouser and Minolta1034 from Ready Up Live to recap our Pax Prime experience.  Before our recap, we had the honor of talking with Gus from Rooster Teeth about his experience with gaming, his thoughts on Halo 5: Guardians and the evolution of video games, and what it’s like to work at a gaming/entertainment company.

The Art of Portal 2

May 4th, 2011

Today's Portal 2 video is a little different. I was so blown away by all of the hidden pieces of art around the game, I decided to compile them into a video. It's an art gallery with portals and robots!

AH: AH PR – PSN and XBL Security Issues

April 28th, 2011
While I hope this isn't something we need to do regularly, the information in this post may benefit some people.

As you are most likely aware, the PlayStation Network (PSN) has been down since April 20th, with Sony confirming that this was due to an intrusion on the service. This week, Sony have also given warning that PSN account holder information may have been obtained as a result of the service intrusion. Although Sony can neither confirm or deny what information has been obtained, if any, the current advise is to change any and all passwords linked to your PSN account. If you have a credit card linked to your PSN account, your card number and expiry date (but not the security code) could also be compromised, and it may be in your best interest to contact your bank to ensure no fraudulant purchases are made.
For more information on the PSN outage, please read the FAQ on the issue.

There is also a security warning on the Xbox Live Status page of their website. There is currently a known exploit within matchmaking for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in which players may receive messages over Xbox Live with specific wording in the title. These messages may be an attempt to obtain your personal information stored on your Xbox Live account, otherwise known as a phising scam. Although there are no official instructions provided on keeping your information secure, I personally would suggest vigilance with all messages on Xbox Live from unknown Gamertags until the issue is resolved.

We'll try to keep you all up to date with any major changes to the current events.

AH: Block Shaped Community Portal Videos

April 28th, 2011
Crikey, it's another explosion of Portal 2 videos from the community today, as well as a little game called Minecraft.

BioHRay and Nand team up in the name of science to give us "Portal Conservation Society" and "Party of Three" guides in Portal 2.
Proving to be more likeable than a Turret, BioHRay also joins companion FlapNasty3 to show us their guide for the "Smash TV" achievement in Portal 2.
ShoveImage makes us feel a little neglected with the "Empty Gesture" achievement in Portal 2.
Our last Portal 2 community guide for today comes from Ollie123456, who brings us the "Ship Overboard" achievement guide.
Finally, L0rdVex shows us the new achievements "Getting Wood" and "Benchmaker" in Minecraft.
