Crosspost from the HURRR boards so apologies.

For those of you who don't know, the Circle of Jerks have been doing a podcast off and on.  Last night, we recorded our latest episode.  Not to sound like I'm blowing my own horn, but it went over really well.

Here it is.

I humbly request any former players of the game to send us suggestions, compliments, insults, and whatever else to our e-mail address at

thisisjerkradio at gmail dot com

Enjoy!

We've recorded a new episode, but it's not quite cut together yet.  It should be out before we podcast again, though.

In this episode, we talk about BAWWWWWWW, and why the CoH/CoV forums are filled with total  :hurr:

EDIT: Okay, it's up.  Jerk Radio

New episode's up.  It's horrible.

Hats off to Aesir for assembling it in to a palpable form.

We're recording Jerk Radio tonight.  Normally, I wouldn't post about us recording, but Sharkey's presence is more or less mandatory, seeing as the topic tonight is "The Task Forces of the Circle of Jerks".  Hopefully Skype doesn't shit out like it did last weekend.

New episode.

Still not the "If we were the devs" episode.  Sorry.

Jerk Radio

I edited this one, so I apologize for it sounding awful.

EDIT: I s'pose I should say what's in this one.  It's basically us making fun of the wedding of Manticore and Sister Psyche.  We're two voices short because I started this to test my recording and editing software, and after PsEG started reading Positron and Manticore's lines in character, I resolved to make this an episode.

So, podcasts and fresher MMOs aside. Not that anyone plays CoH or CoV at all anymore, save for a few dozen of us recluses out there, but this weekend is a free "reactivation weekend." If you haven't played CoH in a while, you should come try it out. It's currently buggy as shit since they rushed the new issue out a few days ago, but still fucktons of fun, especially with the Jerks and Businessmen on Virtue actively grinding the shit out of new characters.

No, seriously, it's still fun. Plus, they smoothed out leveling a bit so it sucks less, and the last few issues have changed the game significantly with improvements.

If you're interested, the launcher client's here. I'd offer trial accounts for those who haven't played, but apparently those have been stripped of their ability to do much of anything interesting thanks to real-money-trade spammer abuse.

At least it's not also a Double XP/other shit weekend.

I know about thread necromancy, but as I've said on the Worst Podcast Ever, City of Heroes has a new upcoming issue.  That statement is a lie.

IT'S ALREADY OUT.

The Mission Architect is a pretty intuitive piece of gear.  It actually stores your work in progress locally.  YOu have a limit to what you can upload for everyone to play, but if the developers stamp it with their seal of approval, then it becomes a permanent server-side arc that can be accessed, and frees up your allotted space.  Last night, I ran through several arcs, a few of which were created by the Jerks themselves.  Had a fuckton of fun.  A++++++++++++++++++ will play again

I've been almost tempted to play City of Heroes again lately (mostly from reading Twoflower's LJ woes with the Mission Architect).  I need to repress these urges.

In case you needed more temptation to try what City of Heroes has become, all inactive accounts are (or should be by 11 a.m. EST) reactivated until the end of Sunday, May 3rd.

The mission architect alone is worth a quick look, if nothing else. You owe it to yourself to load up someone's shitty self-insertion arc that gives you 6 elite boss allies to take out another elite boss. A few of us still in the game have started a habit of "dumpster diving," or running through as many terrible story arcs as possible each night.
