The title of this episode is a line that, originally in the broadcast that aired, was dumped. However, due to having the interview with Jesper Kyd (composer of the Hitman series, Freedom Fighters, Kane & Lynch, and Assassin’s Creed) pre-recorded, the line is now back for the podcast. It may seem strange to hear us react as though we dumped it, but well, now you know. And knowing, as they say, is half the something or another. Along with the interview, we also cover the releases of the week (yeah, there’s a lot), COD4, Kane & Lynch (of which T-Shirts were given away), and you’ll witness first hand fishbang’s ability to read reviews of Assassin’s Creed before they are even published and without having played the game itself.
I know it will be tough, but if you can tear yourself away from Call Of Duty 4 for just a moment, you might find some interesting discussion going on in this episode of Evil Avatar Radio. Even more interesting is the interview we had with Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling, who answered the questions YOU asked! And even some you didn’t. There’s no lack of talk surrounding Call Of Duty 4 here, and if you’re still on the fence, this show might just sway you to the COD side of things as you hear us chomping at the bit to end our broadcast, if only so we can get home to play the game ourselves. Hell, we didn’t even stay very long after the show because of that reason.
In any given week there’s a good chance that Sony will be hoisted by their own petard, or will, at the very least, be subject to lengthy discussion of their shortcomings. We feel for them now and wish them the best, but we’ll be damned if we pass up a chance to take a swing or two ourselves. We’ve got a radio show to run here.
As if on cue, Brian Shiau and Jesse Divnich stop by to tell us how we can put our (virtual) money where our mouths are by participating at The simExchange. If you think your armchair analysis of the games industry is up to par with the professionals, this is your chance to make that clear. It’s free to play, and may prove to be an invaluable tool for aggregating the instincts of the enthusiast community.
We also stand amazed at the endless stream of content being added to SSB Brawl, cower in fear of the November release lists, and find out it’s possible to be on completely different sides of the piracy issue without having a meltdown. It’s an episode full of startling discoveries that must be heard to be believed!

What more proof do you need that the cake is a lie than to hear directly from GLaDOS herself? Ellen McLain, the voice of our new favorite rampant AI (and joined by husband John Patrick Lowrie – himself a noteworthy voice in the Half Life series), talks to EAR about finding her way into the head of a passive-aggressive, dominating construct. We’re also joined by Jonathan Coulton, geek-folk artist extraordinaire, and composer of Portal’s inimitable credit-sequence ballad. If you’ve had any exposure to Portal then you know what a treat this is. And speaking of treats, stay tuned as we take our first run at an uncensored after-show discussion.

It’s Halo eve…what is SantaBap bringing you? For us he brings first-hand accounts of the Halo 3 launch in Seattle, and he’s not the only one. Reports come in from all points about the fever pitch and the midnight release while we talk our way through the story, gameplay and history of Halo. We’re also paid a surprise visit by Steve Scott, Bungie’s chief pyrotechnician, who suggests we keep a weather eye out for his favoritest explosion in the game.
This one’s rated T for Teen, folks, as your experience may change during online play. Err, listening.
A week before Halo and all through the threads, people were scared of massive spoilers ahead.
I can’t rhyme for shit, however, I can tell you about all the cool things happening on tonight’s episode of Evil Avatar Radio. We’ve got everything you need to cure a dull Monday night. We’ll talk about the games we played this weekend, or maybe just the game for those of you with COD4 Betas. Plus, we’ll get a visit from Santa Bap as he calls in to tell us of some Halo 3 contests that will begin this week. Major details to be revealed indeed.
Also tonight, our main theme of the show will be focused on women in the gaming industry as well as women gamers. First up will be Evil Avatar’s own thaGirl (Anjanette) and joyebean (Joye), both of whom work for Amaze Entertainment and have plenty to talk about as far as how they got where they are now and what it took to get there.
As always, thanks for listening.
Another Monday night means another EARful of gaming chat with Evil Avatar Radio. We’ll have a brace of interviews for you that were nabbed back at PAX by Psykoboy2. We’ll hear first from WizKids about the new Halo ActionClix, and then from Theresa Pudenz of Flying Lab Software about the upcoming MMOG, Pirates of the Burning Sea.
We’ll talk about the inevitable shift in emotions regarding BioShock, why the PS3 can’t catch a break…all the thoughts that keep us up at night.

Does it feel a bit like Christmas Eve to anyone but us? BioShock is the first of this year’s top-shelf titles and it’s mere hours away from release. We’ve wrung the demo dry and scoured every retail outlet in town for early-release copies. We’ve had no luck in finding one, and even less luck in getting this game off our minds. It’s a good thing we’ve got a radio show to help with the catharsis.
And as if that weren’t excitement enough, this is also our last show before PAX! We’ve busied ourselves dictating Psykoboy2‘s itinerary for the expo and I can assure you that, as our sole ambassador, his will is not his own. So tonight, in anticipation of this weekend’s festivities, we’ll be joined by Kristin Lindsay, Events Coordinator for Penny Arcade, and Moe Fwacky, trail-master of the PAX Cross-Country Supertrip. That’s two great interviews for the price of none.
Download now for all of the above, as well as gaming news, our weekly free rental giveaway, listener calls, comments, emails and more.
It’s another episode of Evil Avatar Radio, this time sporting a dirty number. In the first hour we cover the news of the week. And then in hour two, we are joined by Robert Khoo – Business Manager at Penny Arcade, and the man behind PAX. He took questions from ourselves and our live listeners about his history with PA, PAX – past and present, the Penny arcade game, and dropped some info on upcoming projects. Then in the third hour we gave away some prizes to our live listeners, tried the Mountain Dew Halo 3 drink, talked about the Bioshock Demo, and more.
Or maybe I’m lying. Maybe none of that happened and I made it all up just now. You’ll never know if you don’t download it and listen for yourself!
The Monday after Phil’s departure from EAR, he appeared on the final episode of In-Game Chat to explain why he left, and what’s next for him. That interview is now here on EAR for everyone who missed it.

Another week begins and so does another episode. We have got news from the week that was as well as breaking news from today. We will also take a look at games and movies coming out this week. We also talk with Keith Fuller of Raven Software about the recent passing of artist Glen Angus. You may not have known him, but you probably know his work and we hope that after talking with Keith, you will know him even more and the cause he was so very passionate about. All that and more along with your calls, questions, comments, and emails.
