ShackCast 17: Bungie, Xbox 360 in Japan, Marky Mark, Rock Band, Idiocy, Remo Song

BOOM widget 114559ShackCast 17 features what has become the standard lineup of Chris Remo, Steve Gibson, Chris Faylor, and Nick Breckon. Internally, this was our second take at this podcast, our initial effort being something we would rather not foist upon our trusting public. We ended up discussing Bungie and its purported original game in development, the Xbox 360's slight victory over PS3 for one week in Japan, Silent Hill's Akira Yamaoka work on a new game, the crappiness of collectors' editions, Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne, amazing Rock Band DLC, and controversies involving Take-Two Interactive and Hellgate: London.

That plus reader mail, what we've been playing, and a Remo song about Peggle from the perspective of Chris Faylor. Faylor's Peggle Song was part our Jam Sessions contest, and its lyrics were written by Shacker liqker.
