Kombo Breaker - Episode 52: NSMB Wii and CheapyD (Yeah It Rhymes)

What better way to give thanks than with your friends on Kombo Breaker? We're posting just in time for Turkey Day and it's the perfect compliment to your momma's sweet potato casserole. The legendary CheapyD of Cheap Ass Gamer was kind enough to join us and give you guys the low down on the best games and best gaming deals of the holiday season. Joey and Matt also get in depth on, hands-down, the Wii's biggest holiday title this year: New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

We won't catch you guys until December, but make sure to send us any suggestions you have for guests or topics. Also make sure to check us out over on Twitter (@kombobreaker).

Oh, and two words of advice for tomorrow: Gorge yourselves.

Kombo Breaker - Episode 51: Garnett Lee Talks Modern Warfare With Us

We weathered the storm of putting together an explosive 50th episode and are proud to keep the streak of outstanding guests alive by having Garnett Lee of GameFly Media join us.

You might not have heard, but the biggest game of the year released this week and we meticulously prod it and poke it with our opinions. Garnett lends his weighty impressions to the discussion and offers up his own idea of what game may give MW2 a run for its money.

Kombo Breaker - Episode 50: We celebrate 50 episodes with John Davison (Gamepro), Jeff and Dan (Totally Rad Show), and James Stevenson (Insomniac Game

We promised #50 would be crazy and we feel like we delivered. Nearly two and a half times longer than our recent episodes, this behemoth may seem daunting at first, but we promise you'll want to sit through the whole episode. If for some horrible reason you refuse to do so, we're happy to provide the times for each guest so you can get your fix.

John Davison kicks off our first segment discussing his transition from to Editor in Chief of Gamepro Magazine. I know, I know, Gamepro does still exist. John Davison explains why you should care now that he's at the helm. We're convinced!

Totally Rad Show's Jeff Cannata and Dan Trachtenberg join us around the 40 minute mark to launch into a discussion about movie games and moreso game movies, especially in light of the fact that the Prince of Persia trailer has just been released. These guys know their stuff and it was a blast to have Jeff explain to us how Doom the movie could've been good.

Finally James Stevenson, Community Manager over at Insomniac Games, sits down with us to talk about their fantastic new release, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time. The interview starts around the 1:47 mark and delves into a lot of the design choices for the game, and he gives the slightest hint of what might come in the future.

It's hard to believe we've actually made 50 of these things. We just want to offer our sincere thanks to anyone who's been listening since the beginning, all the way to anyone who might've joined us even just last week. We're really privileged to be able to spend time with people from every corner of the gaming realm and hope to only bring you more guests that you (and we) love.
