Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags , , , , , on June 30, 2011 by Mike

The dawn of console gaming!

Since so many people have been asking for it (I was being funny just then), here’s the 2nd part of Episode 1!  Should we have called this “Episode 2”? Probably. Did we? No!!

Listen and send us your feedback, or just post a comment below.  And don’t forget to listen to Part 1 if you haven’t already heard it.

It’s Metroid Time

Posted in News with tags on June 28, 2011 by Josh

The Three Guys (currently with more than one console, thus more than one joystick right now) are catching up on some old time favorites…every Metroid game in existence with minimal Metroid: Other M play.  Don’t worry, we don’t hate that one as much as G4.  We will be putting together an episode that is all about Metroid very soon.  In the meantime, we ask a favor of anyone reading this.  Send us your comments, thoughts, memories, and feelings of any Metroid game.  Let us know what you want to hear us talk about as well.  E-mail us, tweet us, leave a comment on our website and Facebook page…there are plenty of ways to talk at us.  This game series is one of the few series the Guys here completely agree may be one of the best (and our favorite) video gaming franchises.  We plan on telling you why. Look for our Metroid episode sometime in July.

I thought I’d vent about something a little more relevant than what we discuss on our podcast (retro games)…so this discussion will focus on the feeling of utter disappointment I have felt with the 2011 game line up so far.  That disappointment mainly stems from my bitterness towards Dragon Age 2.  Read on below…you should…you may agree with me.

We talked about a lot of old games in our first episode, and part 2 will include one horrifically shitty game (according to Mike).  We’ve got pictures of some of the games on our Facebook page (thanks Derek!), so go check them out!

Episode 1: Three Guys, First Joysticks (Part 1)

Posted in Podcast Episodes with tags , , , , , , , on June 18, 2011 by Mike

Its a joystick.

Here it is – the first part of the first episode of the first podcast by the guys at Three Guys One Joystick!  In this episode, we discuss some of our earliest gaming memories.

The episode turned out a little longer that we had expected, so we’ve broken it into two easily digestible parts.  Check it out, and let us know what you think!

Special thanks go to HORSE the Band for letting us use their song Birdo (iTunesAmazon) as our intro theme!  And thanks in advance to Konami for not suing us for using music from Contra!
