This time on The BastardCast, Jeremy and Jason are up all night to get some… cheese fries. They’re also talking about Jason’s adventures in the big city during New York Comic Con and all the big comic book news that came out of the con, as well as the week’s biggest nerd news stories, and that one time when people were doing it in the movie theater while Jason watched Machete Kills.

9-21 week in gamingIt’s not surprising that we are in the midst of the most exciting season in gaming in a long time. It’s fall, and with the holidays closing in, just about every blockbuster release is going to be hitting stores in the next few months. This year, however, seems to be a bit special, bigger than ever before, as Sony and Microsoft have their consoles release dates just around the corner, and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are surely looking to reshape the landscape of video games and entertainment. I’m not sure we could’ve picked a better time to introduce this weekly video game feature, as we’ve undoubtedly just witnessed one of the most epic weeks in video games, with the release of the much-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5. But, that’s not all; there’s plenty more that happened this week in the wonderful world of video games that YOU need to know! (more…)

The BastardCast vs Grand Theft Podcast

BastardCast-413-ART


This time on The BastardCast, the boys return to get creeped out by clowns, root for GWAR to play the Super Bowl, get drunk on Hello Kitty near-beer, and assure you that your vagina’s are not haunted.

They’re also discussing the ways in which BatFleck handles his shit, horrifying puppet hug time with Superman, Jason’s newborn GTA V addiction, and we Trailergasm with Zero Charisma… and we also discuss the movie Zero Charisma.
Do you require more? You son of a bitch! Fine! The Expendables newest badass could be Frasier Crane (Kick), Schwarzenegger may lay waste to the smurf colored cat-elves in Avatar 2, The Hoff strikes out against Marvel and that guy who directed The Avengers because he was the best Nick Fury, and the rare Ned Beatty nickel!All that and a shocking amount German porn references on THE BASTARDCAST!

The BastardCast: This is what shame sounds like. (oh, here is where you can Spot Northampton’s Clown!)

gta5

Who stayed up late Monday to buy Grad Theft Auto V at their local video games retailer? No need to be shy, we know there were a lot of you, and part of the reason why is because Take-Two Interactive Software, makers of the GTA series, have announced that volume five is not only the best-selling entry in the series, but it rung up the highest first day retail sales of any video game in history. Take that Call of Duty: Black Ops II!

So how much is “highest?” Well, $800 million worldwide, excluding Japan and Brazil where it will be released later. To put that in perspective, that’s $300 million more than Black Ops II in its first day of release, or the total box office take of the movies Independence Day or Shrek the Third in the their entire world box office runs. Oh, and for the record, Black Ops II made $1 billion after its first 15 days in release. If GTA5 keeps up the same pace, it should cross the $1 billion mark by the end of the week.

The following was part of statement released by Take-Two:

All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to ‘Grand Theft Auto V.’ Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry’s new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. “Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans whose loyalty and enthusiasm were rewarded with what The New York Times called ‘the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment.’ We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games’ creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch.

What do you Bastards think of the new GTA, worth the wait (and the money)? Sound off below.

I have the heart of an explorer, so every-time I am given free reign within the kingdom of a Grand Theft Auto game, I chase after my elusive prize. My white whale.

They say that she is a myth and a legend. That many men have flown out or sailed out to their death (from boredom) in search of her, but I am un-deterred.

This time, though, something happened on my journey. I cannot be sure if this is a discovery, or some kind of siren’s trick, but I know that I was on a different type of ground than I was on when I began, and that is both thrilling and horrifying.

This time on The BastardCast, Jason and Jeremy pull a 180 after watching the new RoboCop trailer, warn you about the first ever GTA related virus that didn’t come from banging a pixelated hooker in a car park, and go back to school to learn about zombie stuff and things.

Also on the show: This Week in OMG/Total BS Star Wars News, another DC writer leaves the nest (and shits in it too), Will Smith gets ready to have a meeting in an airport Ramada about returning to his signature role (WILD WILD WILD WESTER here we come!), and Transformers 4 gets a title that we don’t care about (look forward to our 180 on The Dinobot Holocaust in a future episode.)

More? We can not deny you the news about an internet addiction treatment center (step one is admitting that you have a problem, step two is joining Google +), our sparkling repartee about the next iteration of the Bat suit, or our questions about whether Elizabeth Berkely (Showgirls & Saved by the Bell… we’re just helping you so you don’t have to use IMDB) can successfully undulate on dry land without the aid of Kyle MacLachlan’s magical unicorn penis on Dancing with the Stars?

By the way, If you have to ask, yes, this next story is readymade to make you scratch your head to the point where it leaves scar tissue: a mail room worker tried to take her career to higher ground by claiming to know the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chris Nolan, assuming that Hollywood would give it away… now.

Oh, and here is the that BatFleck Batsuit they talked about… see? They posted the link. GO TEAM!

What the Fox Say? He say re-subscribe to the show on iTunes, there may be a glitch in the system that is conspiring to keep you away from us! He also says that the half life of a meme is less than the amount of time that it takes to.. what were we talking about?

All that and Jeremy Argh Hudson on the lightness of beering during the autumnal treat that is, The BastardCast!drunk-cat

The BastardCast: Now with 100% More Remo Williams!

trevor-walking-gtav

Whenever Rockstar Games pumps out a new Grand Theft Auto game it has a tendency to prefaced with the phrase ‘highly anticipated,’ and if you weren’t currently feeling that for the fifth installment, get a ladder cause that anticipation is about to go through the roof! A video showing actual real honest to goodness not cut scene game play footage for Grand Theft Auto V was released today and wow, just… wow.

Remember when a good sandbox game just meant you could go anywhere on a map that was 15 square miles and stomp hookers at your leisure? Ya… I don’t either.

This week on the supple Bastardcast, your mother lets Jeremy and Jason out of her bed long enough to talk about Free Comic Book Day, Doctorless Who and the Time Lord’s E-Harmony account, the great Marvel vs. DC debate, and the return of four classic Marvel characters to the Disney owned Marvel Movie Universe that will now be completely ignored after being totally abandoned. So, welcome back Matt Murdock!

Also on the show: Fanboys have Fury over Human Torch casting rumor, Ray-J and Brandy (or possibly another pair of siblings) joining the Avengers if “sources” are to be believed, Jim Gaffigan doesn’t care about your toenails and we don’t care about the resulting controversy, and stop, collaborate, and listen as Ziggy Stardust Jr. compares Tom Cruise to Vanilla Ice.

Do you demand more? Alrighty, Jason performs emergency surgery on a couch that may contain a pathway to another dimension, Charlie Day rides a robot like a bronco while it pinata’s the head of a monster with the whooping stick made of 100% boat, and the boys sing an ode to Grand Theft Auto Trevor, patron saint of fucking shit up and wife-beater tees.

All that, vaginal care products, fresh meat for the Hall of Excellence, and the continuing search for Jeremy’s stolen Batman colorforms on this week’s episode of The Bastardcast.
