ShackCast 19: Mass Effect, Time Crisis 4, Rock Band, Uncharted, Call of Duty 4, Crysis

19
There wasn't much news in this short work week, so for today's laid-back episode we mainly talked about what we've been playing. Chris Remo, Steve Gibson, Chris Faylor, and Nick Breckon discuss Time Crisis 4 and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on PS3, Mass Effect on Xbox 360, Crysis on PC, the just-released Rock Band, and Call of Duty 4.

We wrap it up with some reader mail harkening back to the good old days of competitive Quake, and some discussion about Shacknews' ad policy. While listening to our reader mail, follow along with these pages of classic Quakeworld demos and Quake poll results.

    Both quake 3 links point to the same place.

        The link to the Ultimate Quake Poll 3 says "Quake III poll" which is kinda misleading.

        Nice reading though. :-)

          Oh, also the link to Quake demos in the expanded article body still says "classic Quake III demos".
