…quickly downloading iTunes as we speak…
EDIT: Just noticed the edit button. Awesome. But why the time limit? It would be better to be able to edit all the time.
The reason they can’t use the roof despite the better weather is that is currently being used for a film shoot. Can’t say which one, but it rhymes with Schmostbusters Three.
Shotgun Fun Fun is fun. lol But I can not get Pro Killer Man to run on Vista (64-bit). Anyone else running into this problem?
Shotgun has my vote.
4 comments down 46 to go.
Hmm, your older videos seemed to have more charm. I’m not sure why.
Although I do think it has to do with the green screen. Totally not indie. haha.
(Also 3 days to play the games is not enough! I’d rather have one long video on thursdays. Plus it would remove the really cheesy “this game wins” lines that you pre-record.)
Btw 45 more to go. :P
@Hush/Nitro Crate – You guys know that we’re counting comments and ratings on our iTunes Store page and not here on the site, right?
Also, I think you’d be surprised to see just how indie our green screen setup really is.
18 comments and 2 in the german itunes store = 20
20 + 1 (united kingdom) = 21.
Oh! We need 29 to go. :-)
Germany? United Kingdom? Did you make those places up.
I’ve never heard of them, and I’ve lived in America all my life.
Oh, so the British store doesn’t count?
@Mopsical – You’re a Negative Nancy lately.
That was one of the most bizarre and hilarious episodes of Bytejacker I’ve seen.
It’s too bad I can’t connect to the iTunes store for some reason or I’d add my comment. Also, we don’t want you to get hypothermia, so if you get enough comments you should do the show in your underwear, but also wearing the pink hoodie.
Meh, I’m just saying what needs to be said, is all. I’m not trying to be some kind of Groucho, I just want you to FRICKIN GET BACK ON THAT FRICKEN ROOF! *breathes heavily*
Man, I’ve got to start taking those chill pills everyone’s talking about soon.
I’m shocked that 50 comments are hard to reach,
because I really find this show great great .
I thought its audience was much wider.
LIEEEEES! too bad im to lazy to install that spyware program just to see you in your pants :p
Hey Anthony, if we bait you into commenting, does that count towards the total?
@Mopsical – I never said anything about European comments and ratings not counting. Use your inhaler.
@Francisco – Are you trying to inject sanity into my plan? That’s so lame.
@Ivy – How on earth would you bait me into commenting on iTunes?
If it is any consolation, I vow to watch the next episode in my underwear regardless of comment numbers (and urge my fellow Bytejacker fans to do as well)! Absolutely loved the green screen zoo antics; I’ve heard Mr. Panda loves his bamboo, so his encouraging comments mean a great deal to me! Did anyone else think of this when they saw the episode title?
If it’s just me I’ll understand *sniff* :(
Had to go with Shotgun Fun Fun, even though Pro Killer Man was hilarious. “I need you to kill people.” “OK.” Adrenaline just didn’t do it for me.
@Rob – That’s exactly what I was thinking when I said it!
Tough choice this week.
My vote goes to “Pro Killer Man.” It’s fun to kill things and then run away.
@Anthony: Okay, okay, you don’t want sanity, how about this: you do the show wearing the pink hoodie AS your underwear.
pro killer man all the way!
I demand a total of 100 comments for total naked exposure.
Not to bring the thread of conversation crashing back to something which approaches rationality, but did I miss the Dwarf Fortress episode or has it not happened yet?
Because I have an eerie lingering memory of downloading an audio file review of dwarf fortress, but I think it may have just been a ridiculously boring dream.
@Jeru – The Dwarf Fortress episode was done by the original host before I took over. I don’t know if it’s available online anywhere, as he and the production company had a major falling out in the summer of ’06. I heard he hosts a show about the regional drag racing scene in the Southeast now.
Bias-O-Meter=2 – Two games that require the Yoyo Plugin.
Shotgun Fun fun- A side scroller game that lets you go mowing down undead. First you work out how to stay alive then how to deal with killing more zombies while doing this. If there were more variety of weapons it would be more but it is still good mindless fun in a platformer shooter.
Pro Killer Man- A top down shooter game that is fun to play in either style. Going in and shooting the target or targets then getting out. Or going in shooting the target or targets then taking down as many guys on the way out. Or just kill as many as you can! No matter who gets hit in the end, it is the one who hit first who wins.. right?
Adrenaline- This is like taking the old fashioned table top games and adapting them for netplay shooting. The mix of top down and shooter is suprisingly fun with its mix of key control and mouse aim. Not an unfamiliar control scheme for those of the traditional netplay FPSes. The variety of the items and weapons along with the variety of the maps makes this a solid hit. If the client was downloadable it could even be considered perfect for a top down net shooter.
And Anthony, you really should take it easy with the green screening, they might be stuck in your head or even talk back to you. =o
So uh… you didn’t say those 50 comments had to be from unique users… loophole.. UNLOCKED!
26 iTunes Comments as of this morning, you’re getting there!
@Chasofito – Dude, I love your comments every week. You really take time to play and analyze the games and make some insightful remarks.
There’s just one recurring inaccuracy every week that I have to keep correcting, because I think it’s keeping people from playing some excellent games. You DO NOT need the Yoyo plugin to play anything from yoyogames.com. That plugin is only required for people who want to play the games IN THEIR BROWSER. Every single game on that website is available as a download, and that’s exactly how I get/play them. PLEASE stop saying the Yoyo plugin is required, as that’s absolutely false and puts people off of some really great games.
(whoa, I got out the admin stick there. Sorry, dudes)
Anyway, thanks again for leaving such thoughtful comments every week. We love them. And you.
With all our hearts.
Yay for 50 comments! You might love us and our comments, but we love you and your underpants ;D
Bytejacker is now going for an even larger audience! First it was gamers, then furries, then children, then mass murderers (who probably like killing zombies as much as we do) but NOW we have the freezeing-your-ass-off fetish audience who will want to watch!
My vote = Shotgun FunFun. As fun as it is to say as it is to play. Zombies always need more punishing.
I really hope you’re wearing boxers.
I really, really hope you don’t go commando.
I really, really, really hope you get filmed from the neck up. I do not need to see any freezing Anthony nipples.
EDIT: Ooh, good job adding the Ajax edit comments, man. I told you it was easy to set up.
Even if I shoot him from the neck up, I still have to see it! You guys get it easy.
@Joe Larson – I’m gonna wear my Superman underoos with the velcro cape.
I’m glad to see we finally got some footage of meerkats on this show, it’s about time! I for one had become impatient with all the lack of meerkat.
I would comment in Itunes in the hopes of getting more meerkat footage, however it isn’t installed on any of my machines :(
Right, I’ve played them all now, and I’ve come to a conclusion.
“Infinite ammo + loads of dumb zombies to own = Shotgun… Win Win.”
Oh yeah, and is it just me, or has the comments just become a ‘create the best quote for the show’ competition? Well, it has with me. And I think we need to forget the underwear thing completely. Seriously, not cool.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and @Miguel, you’re probably better off anyway. If there’s a roof, no green screen thus no footage.
You mentioned that they planned on adding capture the flag support in Adrenaline… It’s been in there since several versions though?
@Grand-High Gamer – There was no option for it anytime I played. Does it require a minimum number of players? Because we had a hell of a time finding people to play with online.
Geez, first bashing furries, then bashing Germany in a witty, semi-sarcastic comment?
At least now we know you have a 360, so that’s awesome.
@Trotim – You seem offended. Are you a german furry?
@Miguel – Dude, I so haven’t forgotten about you guys. We’ve just moved from text to mostly video on the blog… Maybe we could do a Skype thing about AGI? I’ll email you.
@Anthony: Yes, but… no, don’t – NO!! Put that axe down!
Good. I could, like, totally unsubscribe, you know! >:(
my vote goes to pro killer man. great game, i’ve been stuck on this one level for the past 4 months or so, and whenever you’re really bored you can just go and randomly shoot up the civilians and policeman while hiding in your shelter. Seriously, try it sometime, the screen FILLS with cops, and the moment you walk out there’s a brief pause then your bullet riddled corpse is lying in the middle of the street.
CRAP!!!! antony, what are you doing to me???
*installing iTunes under wine on linux*
CRAP! CARP! CRAP!
@fuxter – Did I catch a “carp” in there?
oops! sorry, i didn’t mean to… it was.. not on purpose… terribly sorry… poor carp…
Shotgun Fun Fun of course.
Hmm… I guess the servers werent set to CTF…. By default they seem to cycle between DM and TDM.
