Our Special Guest: Ashley

We finally managed to trick Ashley into joining in on our dumb podcast shenanigans for our final episode of the year before Game of the Year stuff kicks off, and this three and a half hour thing is the result. As the year winds down it finds John having his mind blown for five hours straight by Virtue's Last Reward's True Ending and sharing some pretty popular opinions about Super Mario World, Ashley's been in the world of Nep-Neps and fighting off zombie hordes and finishing Tales of Xillia 2, Rhete's been slaying mighty foes with just his bow and dealing with his own zombie outbreak, and Polly has been reading only memories.

This is our final call for Game of the Year lists, so fire yours off to podcast[at] by December 17th or REGRET IT FOREVER!

The SnS Album Listening Club podcast makes its long-anticipated return today, and I bet you're just thrilled as tits to hear that!

In this episode, we take a deep dive into Taylor's suggested listening material, the indie noise pop collective Deerhunter's Halcyon Digest. Upon its 2010 release, the album was met with consistently high critical praise, but does it have the same appeal for the listening club? Find out and enjoy some relaxing and somber tunes while you're at it!

If you have any suggestions or feedback on the new podcast, feel free to drop on over to the SnS forums and leave a comment in the topic I've created for this new show.

Introducing Polly Mario Bros.!
October 27th, 2015

Download Polly Mario Bros.
(Java required to play.)

If you listened to the latest episode of the Sockscast, you probably heard me talk at length about Andrew Kellogg's EXCELLENT Mario NES Builder. If you're like me and don't have a Wii U yet and can't get in on that sweet, sweet Mario Maker action, this is at least one really solid and easy to use substitute. No coding involved, no ROM patching, just a simple point and click editor that's easy to use.

You probably also heard that I was creating my own full Mario Bros. 1 game! Well, that game is now here and free to play for all!

It spans 5 worlds with 4 stages apiece and my aim was to create a balanced and fun experience with a lot of variety and a ramp up to a really solid challenge by the end. I'm pretty happy with the results and I hope you have a bit of fun yourself if you check it out!

Now go! Jump over stuff! Shoot fireballs! Save the princess! Burn the children!

Run Time: 1:17:34 / File Size: 35.5MB
Hosted by: Beepner, Byron Hulcher, Taylor, and Polly

Today we're launching a new music-centric podcast, The SnS Album Listening Club. This new show is hosted by myself, Beepner, Byron Hulcher, and our good friend on the ol' Twitterbox, Taylor.

Simply, this is a podcast where we all listen to an album selected by someone over the course of a week or however long, then we get together to discuss it in detail with some clips from each track provided throughout to give the discussion some context. We're just getting this thing started and we're not exactly sure how we'll structure it after our first four episodes, but for now let's consider this a test run to see how it feels to us and what people think.

If you have any suggestions or feedback on the new podcast, feel free to drop on over to the SnS forums and leave a comment in the topic I've created for this new show.

Thanks for listening!

Anyway, here's a thing I wrote looking back at one of the earliest reviews on the site and how my opinions may or may not have changed since then.

You Dirty Mother...
March 16th, 2015

For the first time in almost 1,600 years, Pitchfork rises from the bottom of the sea to deliver what may possibly be his most anticipated written article for the site (at least given the volume of email I've received about it over the last three years.). Make sure you got some snacks and a comfy seat handy, folks...

However, if you're really interested in supporting Pat and his creative efforts, I urge you to follow the link below to pick up his newly-released novel, All the Lonely People:

Also, don't forget to shoot me an email if you're still interested in appearing on our 10th Anniversary live cast. I'm still working out the finer details, but I'm receiving your emails and will get back to you all soon.

Sockscast Episode 15 will be available sometime Wednesday-Friday of this week.

Stay tuned!


Help Celebrate SMPS.Net's 10th Anniversary!
March 9th, 2015

Next month will mark the tenth year that Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net has been annoying the entire internet with its own unique brand of bad videogames writing and humor. But I'm not the only one to blame! Many of YOU have been a part of this catastrophe and it's time to own up to your sins!

To celebrate our tenth anniversary, the plan right now is to host an ENTIRELY LIVE version of the Sockscast (which will be archived after we broadcast) and we want to talk to many of you as possible about the site or whatever else may happen to tickle your fancy. If you're just a casual reader, only listen to the podcast, or have contributated something to the site over the years, we want to talk to YOU, and we hope you wanna talk to us!

Currently, I'm in the planning phase, so I want anyone who wishes to be a part of the 10th anniversary podcast to shoot an email off to polly[at-sign] to let me know you'd like to be on for a bit. As we get closer to the actual date, I'll be sure to email you and let you know when we'll be broadcasting and work out when it'd be convenient to bring you into the call.

I currently have no date set for the event, but my hope is to do it sometime in early April, but plans be fluid sometimes and peoples' schedules don't always play nice.

I'll post more updates about the tenth anniversary livecast as they start coming together. I hope we get the chance to talk to YOU!

Sockscast Episode 14!
Run Time: 3:04:14 / File Size: 84.3MB
Our Special Guest: FreezingInferno
Opening Theme: Operation Wolf

April showers may bring May flowers, but February Wieners bring March FreezingInfernos! That makes no sense at all, but it's at least cool knowing that The Internet's FreezingInferno joins the Sockscast this episode to discuss his love of cartoons, platformers, and says a word heinous enough to become the first person ever bleeped on a Sockscast. Meanwhile, Polly is floating through space as a gravity ghost, Rhete is using his slow-mo vision to ogle boobies, and John spirals further into the madness that is the SaGa series.

Thanks for listening, and be sure to shoot an email off to podcast[at-sign] if you want us to read your dumb words on the air!

February 11th, 2015

Sure, it only took half a year for me to finally get around to it, but the Sockscast now has its own official page. You can find all past and future episodes of the show there for your easy listening convenience, and there's even an in-page player for those that would rather just listen in their browser.

Have fun kids!

If you haven't played The Last of Us, firstly, what's your deal? Secondly, don't listen to this episode if you intend to play it in the future. Don't worry, you won't hurt our feelings...too much.

Our Special Guest: Beepner
Opening Theme: Operation Wolf

And so, The Powers That B said, "Let there be Sockscast," and all was good in the land! Of course, we obviously mean "The Powers That Beepner," since he's gracing our podcast with his ever-so-lovely presence and sharing his love of Dark Souls and cats fishing...or fisting...we're not sure. Meanwhile, Rhete, Polly, and John demonstrate the virtues of having your own videogame-related podcast by not talking about videogames much at all and instead focus on cartoons, music, and other weird obsessions truly befitting a podcast about videogames!

Tune in next Sunday for Episode 12.2 where myself, Rhete, John, and Beepner will spoil the shit out of Naughty Dog's The Last of Us. If you've got any feedback or questions you'd like to have us yap about concerning the game, feel free to drop us an email at podcast[at-sign]!

See ya next Sunday!

The Sockscast train pulls into the station an eensy-weensy little bit late this week due to illness, but try as it might, illness has no concrete way of stopping the maximum amount of yappage coming from the only sorta-videogame podcast that matters! This episode Polly's headin' on down to South Park to have herself a time, John's finally achieved his dream of becoming a magical girl, and Rhete's still...doing...lots of stuff!

As always, feel free to hit us up with an email at podcast [at-sign] and maybe we'll make YOU internet famous next!

While you're at it, be sure to drop by the Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net forum and let us know what some of your top Generation 5 games are for a big ol' list we're doin'! And you can drop by our Let's Play forum to participate or enjoy some videos from the Let's Play Summer School 2 event that's happening right now!

Opening Theme: Operation Wolf

The Sockscast is back and ready to kick off 2015 as they get the ball-a-rollin' with a three-hour post-holiday poscast for you to get all nice and cozy to. Over the last two weeks Rhete has managed to play every single goddamn game EVER CREATED, John warps back to 1985 with gaming's most beloved franchise, and Polly has been in the same dungeon for almost twenty hours!

While I've got your attention, why not drop by the Sliders 'n Socks forum and help Rhete compile another huge list of games. Now that the holidays are past us, we hope some more folks are a bit more eager and have a bit more time to write up some of their games from the fifth generation of consoles.

Also, Awesome Games Done Quick is happening RIGHT NOW, so head on over there for some awesome speed runs and if you can throw a little money their way for charity.


Sockscast Crew's Expanded GoTY 2014 Lists!
January 1st, 2015

Welcome to yet another year on this miserable little planet! But everything doesn't have to be so bad. In fact, we're starting the year off with some fresh new content for you all to have a gander at.

As promised, myself, John, and Rhete have all produced some site-based versions of our Game of the Year lists for 2014 that we mentioned on the podcasts. We all kinda tackled the situation in different ways, but if you listened to the podcast, you know I can't really trust these two ding-dongs to do things normally anyway.

And so, presented for your approval, the lists:

And with that, Game of the Year is freakin' over. The Sockscast will be returning to our regular recording schedule hopefully tomorrow night, so there's hope for a new Sockscast for your new year coming Sunday!

And yeah, yeah, I know, I need to get this page cleaned up and a proper site for the podcast. I'M LAZY! Some things I just didn't make resolutions about!
