With E3 still a week away, and the PSN fiasco finally winding down, what news scraps are there left for poor amateur podcasters like us feed on? How about an announcement for a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy game? Minecraft coming to Android and iOS? Kotaku showing some of that ol’ backbone that we used to love? And the announcement of Facebook: Modern Warfare (AKA Call of Duty Elite)? All of this and more on this week’s episode of the Levels Of Detail Podcast! Please, Share and Enjoy.

Levels Of Detail Podcast: Now With More Nerdrage Edition (05.12.11)

Games and Gaming

We do strive to maintain a degree of optimism and positivity in our message and tone here at the Levels Of Detail Podcast, but Goddamn, it gets hard sometimes. We enter the fourth week of the Playstation Network shutdown and discuss what that means for Sony and their partners with PSN (Hint: bad things), try to deduce what Nintendo means with their Vitality Sensor delay news and why they’re still talking about it, smack some collective heads together about Mass Effect 3 and Valve, Notch floats the idea of a big Minecraft convention for the launch date, we hope that Harmonix being untethered from Viacom means more awesome Rock Band DLC in our future, muse a bit about World of Warcraft and Spy Party, and advocate for gamification of education. Please, share and enjoy, and talk back at us at

Levels Of Detail Podcast: This Could Be Bad Edition (04.29.11)

Games and Gaming, News, Retrospectives

So, there was a thing! PSN got hacked and now we’ve all been sold wholesale to Estonian hackers to work in their gold farms or whatever. Also, Nintendo confirmed that the Wii 2 is actually a thing, which conveniently distracted everyone from the massive hit their year-over-year earnings took. We take a solid half-hour to kick both Sony and Nintendo while they’re down, but we also have other news! In the afterglow of the Portal 2 release, Valve gives us some more information about their upcoming projects, we have more Minecraft news, LA Noire lets us know where its true allegiances lie, and an ancient conspiracy declares war on gaming. Please, listen, share and enjoy, and email us at
