RTM Oscars 2: Oscar HARDER

At last, the Oscars themselves start and we are still recording! Sure Red Carpet made us want to die, but the Academy Awards themselves can’t be all bad, right? … Just listen to our recording. It’s all we have for you. We’re sorry. We’re so sorry.

If you somehow make it through the whole thing then seek mental help.

RTM Oscars: Red Carpet Commentary

RTM starts out their Oscar night with Red Carpet coverage! It doesn’t take long for us to greatly regret their decision. After two hours of orange dresses (that are actually red), awkward interviews, Reese Witherspoon being gorgeous, weird mystery boxes, commercial breaks, Anne Hathaway being gorgeous, Sabretooth, and much more, we kind of want to kill ourselves.

But not before three hours of Oscars!

Behold, our “highlights” of when we recorded during the Oscars Red Carpet 2013.

Episode 58: The Rap Game~

On today’s episode we not only break Ben but we also hear him describe the most dangerous game in the world. Well… not really dangerous, but risky. Well, not really risky either. Or rewarding. Ben’s explanation makes me wonder why people play it in the first place. Obviously it’s not for the money or fame cause those are against the rules? … I think? Hold on, let me check my notes…

Episode 57.5: Sly Cooper 4 EXTRAVAGANZA

In order to keep the spoilers out of the episode and still be able to get the massive fangasming out of our systems, Ben and I sit down and talk about Sly 4 in a seperate “episode” without holding back. Everything we loved and disliked about this wonderful game that we waited eight years for. We talk ancestors, story, bosses, characters, art, and everything else possible to talk about when it comes to this game.

Consider this a collective sigh of relief from two massive Sly Cooper fans, and the pouring out of some emotions that resulted in finally playing this game.

Episode 57: BETTER CLOSE THOSE FURNACE DOORS

We’ve got a lot to talk about this week, even outside of Sly’s release… WAIT SLY GOT RELEASED!? WHY ARE WE EVEN HERE? WE’RE RECORDING A PODCAST!? NO. NO WE SHOULD BE PLAYING SLY. WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE PLAYING SLY. ALWAYS AND FOREVER. It is at this point that we realize we are crazy. Absolutely crazy as hell.
