The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 13 – Qualified Approval

We’re back to our normal format for a very late November episode. Join us for some griping about one thing which really isn’t tacticool, some games which we don’t understand, and the case of the missing quals.

The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 11

In this episode, Jay rambles for a full half hour on a gun topic (a Crossbox first!), we trash a three-gun group whose rules specify what color your magazines are (and are not) allowed to be, we make a connection between Bond and Longstreet, and we decide that the French aren’t so bad after all.

Jay’s Goldeneye Source review in one line (approximately): wow, how old-school. I don’t remember it taking this many bullets to kill someone. Oh, right. I always used the P90. That’s why.

The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 10

In which we have no special theme for you, but we do have: a squee-worthy news topic immediately following a weighty warlike one, some further competition kit chit-chat, some defenses of indefensible procurement errors, and a proper savaging of a game that we describe as, “Factorio, but boring,” as well as, “EVE Online for shut-ins”. Listen and see for yourself.

The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 9 – Shooting the Breeze

The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 7

This month on the Crossbox Podcast, in the grim darkness of the far future, there is only one Warhammer 40K game we’re talking about. In other news, Jay recommends two things with the initials ‘KSG’, and John savages a childhood hero.

The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 6 – Tax Day Edition

In this episode, we debut a new segment, talk about our summer shooting sports plans, kick in virtual doors and shout, “Police! Freeze, scumbags!”, and bore our listeners to death with a piece called ‘logistical topics of interest’.

Happy Tax Day! Remember, your government is sufficiently bloated that Tax Freedom Day isn’t for another week.


The Crossbox Podcast: Episode 5 – March Madness

In this week’s edition, we discuss a rarely-considered and rarely-used firearms choice, a study sim masquerading as Ace Combat, and a procurement project we’ve decided should be struck by lightning.

Also, I discover that there’s a default Audacity plugin for every single sound editing task I have thus far been doing by hand. Oops.
