The SavyGamer Podcast, Episode 13

It’s a special Monday this week, what with it being three years since SavyGamer was born and everything. To celebrate, we’ve got a code for the Halo: Reach beta and Zavvi have kindly donated two copies of Red Dead Redemption, one for each console – make sure you listen to be in with a chance!

We also talk about the Boy Scouts introducing a videogames belt loop, CoD:BlOps and Bungie’s partnership with Activision, and impressions of the Reach beta so far. There’s also a Halo-based argument. It’s a very Halo-related show this week, to be honest. But there’s other awesome things, too!

Last week’s SavyGamer Game Night was a huge success! This week, we’ll be playing the Halo: Reach beta, accessible through your copy of Halo 3: ODST. If you want to play, add the Gamertag We R SavyGamers on Xbox Live, and join in the fun this Friday. We’ll be playing every mode we can.

If you don’t have access to the Reach beta, you can still play with the SavyGamer community on Steam! Just join the SavyGamer Steam group and look for games. There’s no prescribed game for the Game Night on PC this week, so go nuts!

Also, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter! The account for the site is @SavyGamer, and you can find tweets from Lewie and Will at @LewieP and @Willeth respectively. Also, don’t forget to send us your suggestions for what you want to hear about in next week’s show with the hashtag #sgpodcast – we’ll pick the best to talk about in every show.

Until next week, guys. Stay cool.

    I’m going to tell you something Lewie and I want you to listen tight. It may sound like I’m talking about me but I’m not, I’m talking about you. As a matter of fact I’m talking about all people everywhere.

    When I come down here to Texas I was looking for something. I didn’t know what (but it may have been a 360 copy of RDR). It seems like you added up my life and I spent it all either stomping other men or in some cases getting stomped. Had me some money and had me some medals, but none of it seemed a lifetime worth the pain of the mother that bore me.

    It’s like I was empty somehow. Well I’m not empty anymore. That’s what’s important – to feel useful in this old world. To hit a lick against what’s wrong or to say a word for what’s right even though you get walloped for saying that word.

    Now I may sound like a Bible beater yelling up a revival at a river crossing camp meeting but that don’t change the truth none. There’s right and there’s wrong. You got to do one or the other. You do the one and you’re living. You do the other and you may be walking around, but your dead as a beaver hat.

    Yee haw, pardner! I just got word of yer rootin’ tootin’ competition! Now I ain’t sure what no “X Box” is but I know I like the sound o’ that Red Dead Redemption! Reminds me of those good ol’ days on the Prairie, dueling pistols with Bad Bill! I need mah practice, so I can be ready for one o’ those fancy fangled LAN parties at the O.K. Corral, so send me that copy for that three six tay and I won’t have to show you my gunslinging skill.

    See you at dawn!

    Why howdie thar stranger! I hears ya’ll be needing a gun slinger for some sorta competition going on down around here. Well, you won’t be finding anyone handier with a pair of hand irons than myself. So, I suggest yea stop lookin and hire me! I don’t need much in way of payement. No suhree. Just a roof over my head and a copy of Red Dead Redemption on the xbox 360 will suit me fine.

    So listen up pardner, it seems I be enterin your lil contest to rustle up myself a copy of this here Red Dead Redemption for that Playstation 3 machine. Now I see this be no easy task judgin’ by me competition above, but I’ll be tryin me best to win over ya hearts.

    We also gotta be remembering to celebrate your birthday as well, outlaw. Hows about I throw you the best shindig this town will ever see? Now I’m not tryin to bribe you or anythin, but I not be seein anyone else offerin you such a gift. If I hadn’t already spent me afternoon at the saloon I’d be I was the only person to be recognising your great achievement, eh?

    So, I hope this be enough to lasso meself this here video game. I already be finished with that piss-poor excuse of a Cowboy game, Call of Juarez, and I be wantin somethin good this time round. Thanks for yer time and I be seein you around.
