The boys have a smashing time with Rabid guesting, and fitting right in. Here’s the description from The Couch Mercenaries:
Episode 75 – CPM gets benched.
The Overseas Connection adjusts on the fly this week. Join Murphys Law, Skulduggerer, ChinChinny and late addition Rabid Scotsman as we discuss video games, breaking news, new releases, the question of the week and much, much more!
Topics this week:
- What changes would you like to see to the dashboard of XBL or PSN, and “if” PC Gaming is not dead, what’s keeping it alive?
- Starcraft 2 launch day numbers.

Another show is recorded and because Highclass couldn’t make it to the show we recorded a show over Skype. We have Mayhem, JssLifeLike, DBird, SDI and BigSmooth8 to talk about the new Ice Cream Cone and some Final Fantasy talk. If you’re a guy who loves Final Fantasy you’ll love the amount of details we had on this show… not really. I’d like to thank our guest for hosting. Download and enjoy!

Episode 53 – A Stranger in the House
The Overseas Connection once again finds itself minus BigBadDaddy whom again had British things to do. So instead of subjecting you to just two of us we dug deep in the pool of “fill in podcasters” and asked Jsslifelike from the Gamesmen to join myself (Murphys Law) and Chin Chinny as we tackle this weeks breaking news, new releases, what they are playing and the ever popular Fanboy speak segment.
- Epic announcement for E3.
- PS3 clock bug debacle thingy
- Another study saying we are violent
- Heavy Rain rising to the top in the UK
- Media Molecule gets its own room in house Sony
- Japanese programmers making peanuts for their efforts
- Activision drops the ban hammer on the IW studio heads
- Turbine says free means more money for them

After besting The Couch Mercenaries and Black Market International, YOUR Gamesmen have reached the championship round of the 2009 Gamesmen Gaming Awards Game of the Year Tournament! The road to the finals, while semi-short, was anything but easy and substitute fill-ins were needed along the way. Special thanks go out to the original team- jsslifelike, FandAeternal, easton-arrow, and madscientisttx. The Gamesmen would also like to recognize the following for substituting as energies waned and eyes began to close: Chinny1985, The L1t1G4T0R, Denoch, and theroostarr. The tenative night for the finals is Friday, March 5 2010, so get out your pom-poms and cheer your team to victory!
If all goes well, The Gamesmen will bring Episode 28 to you and it’s ALL about Final Fantasy, baby! The plan is for Lyfeliek, Rabid Scotsman, Highclass1979, Upaut, and GothicMike to give you game talk and opinion with a JRPG skew! Here’s what we need from you:
* Emails to TheGamesmenRPG@gmail.com about the Final Fantasy series
* Tell us what you’re playing on Twitter by using #TheGamesmenCheck (@jsslifelike if it doesn’t show up in the search)
* Your love and support
So, there ya have it. We have games on the brains and opinions on our minds! Hope to hear from you!
Remember that “Game of the Year” Uncharted 2 Family Night we discussed on The Gamesmen, Episode 23 LIVE? Well, being named the 2009 Overall Gamesmen Game of the Year deserves a much loftier fanfare than a game night. That’s right! Thanks to the brainchild of one Simon DI from BMITV, we’re going “show-to-show, toe-to-toe”! As of this moment, The Gamesmen, The Couchmercenaries, and BMI are involved but other VGhub.net sites with podcasts are welcome to join as well! If you’re a fan of any one particular site and wish to play in the tourney but that team is full, I’m fairly sure that we can either find you an existing slot or create a “B” team. Leave a post here or email TheGamesmenRPG@gmail.com.
The tournament will take place on Friday, February 26th and each match will consist of the best of three rounds: (1) Deathmatch, (2) Plunder, (3) King of the Hill.
- Vartell (AKA Dark Zios)
- Mayhem (J4CK-AF)
Join Lyfeliek, Simon DI, and BigSmooth8 for game talk and fun! This week, The Gamesmen discuss MAG, Dragon Age, BigSmooth’s distaste of Final Fantasy and RPGs in general, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, YOUR email submissions, and more!
We appreciate the feedback, so keep it coming! Contact us at TheGamesmenRPG@gmail.com or simply comment below!
