Viral Play S02 – Mess Hall 2

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , on February 18, 2011 by Carlos Macias

In a bit of a call back to Episode 6 of Mess Hall, we follow up with Eddie Rodriguez as he reminisces about his moment of seclusion (aka “moving out”) in a segment we dubbed “Solo Living Tips.”

Listen in to hear about how to get free cable, electricity and other amenities if you ever find yourself in similar financial straits. Carlos, Louie, and Jrock also talk a bit about Coachella, hands-on with Nintendo’s upcoming 3DS, the evolution of music/genre mashing, open-world games with consequences (i.e. Mass Effect 2, Fallout 3), the upcoming LA Noire, and Latin America encouraging the globalization of game development.

All in this week’s episode of Mess Hall. Sit back, relax and listen in as we use any excuse — my little brother’s birthday — to party.

Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 6

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Carlos Macias

School season, child rearing, headbutting, missed interviews. All a part of what’s been happening with Viral Play lately.

No worries, though. The show must go on, and it will. Only maybe not as timely as before — because we’ve always been timely, ‘members?

Anyway, to tide you guys over until a proper Viral Play we bring you a special episode of “Mess Hall.” Carlos and the gang hid from the rain at “Jimmy and Eddie’s Apartment” (patent pending) to talk about the moving-away-from-home experience, the Conan/Leno situation, NBC hate, goals of the upcoming “Talk Show,” Jimmy’s new nickname, and end it with talk of athletes’ extracurricular activities (think: Tiger Woods).

Even Hitler comes up! Truly a mess hall episode not to be missed.

Topics discussed this week include: Adrian’s England roundabout trip, meeting girls in Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Little Caesars’ heartburn, getting old at 22, consumer responsibility, Uncharted 2, and are the Kings of Leon whack?
