The 404 1,087: Where we talk about it without ruining it (podcast)

With Justin Yu still under the weather, The 404 Show once again experiments with Joe Kaminski filling in. We consider ourselves very lucky to have a guest with super-powers on our program. The first power is his knack for going on obscenely long tangents about the most meaningless of topics. The second is the ability to give spoiler-free movie reviews, more specifically of The Amazing Spiderman, which was just released.

Next it's off to a discussion on Android and the fact that only 10-percent of those devices have Ice Cream Sandwich running on them. What's even more confusing is that Jelly Bean (ICS' successor) was just released last week. It's arguably the most annoying Android reality, so we weigh its pros and cons.

Finally, we touch on EA's recent statement that the company will soon be distributing games 100-percent digitally. This shouldn't be much of a surprise, since EA already goes out of the way to combat used game sales (see EA Online Pass).

But perhaps the most exciting news of the day is the introduction of the official 404 trucker hat (pictured above). These bad boys will be available should you come and hang out with us at ComicCon 2012. All the info you need is here. We also highly recommend participating on CNET's ComicCon Twitter Contest for your chance to win a game console. … Read more

The 404 1,047: Where we go one-on-one with James Gunn (podcast)

Director James Gunn goes one-on-one with The 404's Jeff Bakalar to talk about his writing duties on the new video game, Lollipop Chainsaw. James is the man responsible for films such as the "Dawn of the Dead" remake, "Slither," "Super," and the cult-classic "Tromeo and Juliet."

James has teamed up with legendary game-maker Suda 51 (Shadows of the Damned, No More Heroes) to bring us Lollipop Chainsaw, the story of a cheerleader who must take on a swarm of the undead led by a colorful cast of zombie punk rockers. We asked James what it was like to work with the iconic producer and the various special guests that voice the game's bosses.

There's something for everyone in today's show: zombies, music, video games, movies, and much more!… Read more

Buzz Out Loud 1588: Loved the show (Podcast)

At 1,588, it's the final episode of Buzz Out Loud, the podcast that launched a thousand news stories, arguments, hosts and co-hosts, producers, and good times. We packed the studio full -- Tom Merritt, Veronica Belmont, Jason Howell, Rafe Needleman, Donald Bell, plus, of course, Molly Wood, Brian Tong, and Stephen Beacham...and it's possible there was some Champagne, a little whiskey, some cake, and even a couple of news stories. Oh, and tears. Definitely tears.
