PixelJunk Radio

Hey there! This is Ariel Angelotti reporting from Q-Games headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, and I have some great news! PixelJunk Shooter 2 is nearly ready for launch, getting that final coat of paint before it takes off to the sky. While the release date is still hush-hush at this point, I can assure everyone of its complete and total awesomeness, so keep a keen eye out for more information shortly.

Until then, we’ve prepared something special to keep everyone entertained As a regular consumer of videogame podcasts, I thought it would be a great idea to round up a rather reluctant Dylan and two other Q staffers, Bear Trickey and Duncan Flett, to record our own. Thus, “PixelJunk Radio” was born. Well, our podcast has finally been released, so join us over beverages and discussion of life in Japan, videogames, and yes, the ever mysterious Japanese toilet by clicking the following link and subscribing to our podcast on iTunes.

Or you can catch a video version on the PixelJunk YouTube Channel which features images of the cast to watch while you listen here

Be on the lookout for more podcasts in the future!

Just have a few questions about the game:

1) What is the approximate native resolution for the game? 1.5) Will it be able to output at 1920x1080p (upscaled or native)?
2) Can you allow us to play through the game and be able to kill everyone instead of save everyone without “losing” the game (and perhaps give 2 endings; one good ending and a second “evil” ending for those who choose to be harm the scientists instead of save them)?
3) Can you give a discount on the game for people who have already downloaded the first game or who are subscribed to playstation plus?

Big fan of the series (got every game available on ps3), and i’m looking forward to downloading it. Thanks for the reply in advance!

    I’ll do my best to try and answer your questions.

    Shooter 2 will be in native 1080p, so rest assured! I’m afraid I’m unable to answer your questions about some of the Shooter 2 gameplay at this time, but stay tuned for more info. Also, while I can’t give out any details at this time, those who have already downloaded the first game might receive something special for continuing to support Shooter and the PixelJunk series. Again, I can’t give details out, but we definitely appreciate your patronage. Thank you!

Thanks for the XML address, Ariel ! I’ll add it to my Zune podcasts. Be sure to add the podcast to the Zune marketplace. There are many video game podcast listners who use Zune.

Comment –> Maybe you guys should talk video games instead of Japanese culture ? Just a suggestion.

    And don’t worry, videogames will also be featured in our podcast. Needless to say, videogames play an important part in our lives, so be sure to listen to the latest episodes for more.

You guys are great. I’m not a big podcast listener (but I listened to this one anyway)- I wish we had transcripts too for those of us without solid time to listen to one thing. Good stuff.

PixelJunk Eden was a pitifully unbalanced game, and Shooter was a terrible name – a name chosen by PixelJunk under the false pretense of “letting the fans name the game” – for a just okay game.

There has yet to be a PJ game worth spending the usual 10 price tag for, so I ask: Who in their right mind cares what the PJ team has to say about videogames?

    I understand how you feel, and I would personally prefer there not be any bleeping going on. But since our games are rated E and many people enjoy playing our games with their family, we feel that we don’t want to alienate that segment of our audience.

REALLY can’t wait for this game!

The co-op in shooter 2 is THE BEST. I’ve beaten the game in full several times, and still go back to play co-op once in a while.

The first time when I played through with my father was the absolute BEST though. He’s not a great gamer, but the fact that I just had to survive a few seconds to have him respawn was an excellent strategy to “bring him along” on my play-through. We stayed up till about 3AM that first night we bought it and had a BLAST.

Love Eden as well, but Shooter is a classic that I’ll remember decades from now. So thank you, and I can’t wait for number 2. :D
