Gamers Only Younger

Let me be the first to apologize about Evan listening to Christmas carols the entire show-length. We know, he has a problem. Also, Scott Sauer from Welcome to the Goo joins us for plenty of rip-rank shenanigans.

Mailbag

With no emails this week, we rely on Fluffy Nuts, our favorite Australian in the whole damn world, to entertain us with nerf guns and sting-rays.

Weekly Whats Up

With such a boring week, what is there to share except our feelings? Eh, f*ck that.

What's On Tap

We've been playing so much, but what its really all about is that World of Warcraft. Oh and maybe some Persona 4, hitting up the classics this week. Tune in every week to hear about Alex's Persona 4 endurance run.

Break 1

Fuckin' News

The news is games are going to be announced at the spike VGAs! I should really be saying this in the past tense, 'cause it kind of already happened.

You Can't Test the Tester

Yeah, time to say goodbye to your favorite big asshole, and much much more in this weeks edition of YOU CAN'T TEST THE TESTER!

Talkabouts: Wii 2

We sit down with our new roundtable-like discussion set up, and give our thoughts on the possibilities of a Wii2 coming in 2012. With so much to ask for from Nintendo, what could the Wii2 do to satisfy our needs?

Also, don't forget to write in and call in for next week's Talkabout, Games to Movie Adaptations: how in the hell are they this bad, and what can we do to make them better?

Break 2

Whatcha Wanna Want

We know what you want, and it sure ain't pilates, its all about the pirates. 

Outro

Yeah, we know its been fun, but its time to say goodbye. Don't worry, the Troof Scott still loves you. (not really)

Irrational Distractions with Tennis Balls

We have one of our best shows ever with special guests Glenn Burges and Geoff Chorney from Interactive Distractions. They're loud, crewed, and most of all Irrational, so sit back, relax, and enjoy.

Mailbag

We start off with the usually mailbag, which quickly escalates as the why Halo roolz and why CoD sucks. Plus don't forget: Joe is "The Sexy One".

Weekly Whats Up

Happy cut-off Glenn day! Oh, and don't forget to pee off your balcony into a cup or something.

What's On Tap

So, the universal agreement is that Gran Turismo 5 sucks, and everything else but Halo can go suck it. Don't forget to sponsor Glenn and Geoff in their MLG league! (Except not really)

Break 1

Fuckin' News

On this week's edition of the news, Halo may be coming back in tippity-top shape, and yes, we mean the REALY Hay-loez. Also, Dead Nation doesn't support voice chat, and thus it sucks. Don't forget to buy MvC3!

You Can't Test The Tester

Alex drones through episodes 4 and 5 of "The Tester" and begins to realize if he ever wants to be a tester, he must sacrifice his dignity and become a bratty 14-year-old girl.

Free For All Versus

Glenn wins this segment on sheer saltiness by itself. Ever played as Skorpion from Mortal Kombat? Well you'll sure as hell want to after this!

Break 2

Whatcha Wanna Want

With only a few weeks left until the new years, it doesn't look like any good games will be coming soon, so we'll just have to sort through to find our pick of the week.

Outro

About damn time right? Yes, I know you'll miss us, but don't worry, we'll be back next week!

Jungle Fever

With almost the entire normal crew out this week, Alex and Joe surround themselves with guests! Robby, or robby1051, and Andrew, AKA ZeAce, join them in a fantastical adventure of sexual inuendo and video game talk! Don't forget the Jungle Fever!

Mailbag

Nothing. Apparently we cannot answer questions this week, but don't forget: the mailbag email is mailbag@ippodcast.net!

Whats Up/What We've Been Playing

Alex has a very interesting story to tell you guys, and it has to do with his profound hatred of cats! Also, there are plenty of games to talk about this week! Rock Band 3, Enslaved, and other awesomeness.

Break 1 [Big shoutout to InDisTravis for singing this diddy!]

Fuckin' News

Not much to say here accept JUNGLE FEVER. We all have jungle fever, especially Robby. And there is just one special thing you can take from this segment: "Jungle Fever: For What Other Kind of People?"

Review: Dead Nation

Alex has a break down about Dead Nation, wanna hear the score? Go check out his review on the website!

Free For All Versus

We whup some  Bowser ass with dogs from Fable 2, and don't forget E. Honda vs Toad! See who wins in this crazy ownage-fest as always!

Break 2

Whatcha Wanna Want

Auditorium! Yeah, we don't know either. There's some more Arc the Lad for you, and we shit all over Hello Kitty!

Outro

As always, were sad to say goodbye, but this Jungle Fever is getting a little to crazy!

20th Birthdays Come With- DRINK!

Yes, its our big 2-0 and we are super excited! Chris joins the team but Scott sits out because he has other commitments! We wanna celebrate with style so we go all out LIVE and with a mixer!

Mailbag

We have plenty of emails this week, even from our #1 Superfan Mister_Nep and the infamous Geoff Chorney.

Weekly Whats-Up

Aces got a tattoo, Chris ran some shit, and Evan loves Jesus.

What's On Tap

This week, with embargoes gone, Alex breaks down Dead Nation, Aces talks about tired nights playing BLOPS, and Chris relives the Assassin's Creed. Evan on the other hand...well, BLOPS.

BREAK 1

Fuckin News

Little Big Planet mini-games, CIA, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3 news! That's all we care about, MvC3. That is all.

You Can't Test the Tester

Alex recaps episode 3 of the Tester, and people seem to care less and less. With crowns being misplaced, and jerkoffs, named 'Big Fizzeek', what in the world are we Irrational Bastards to do?

Pop-Corn Discussion

Time to toss around a few different discussion topics, from mothers killing babies to the 30 most influential game characters of all time, there is plenty to talk of.

BREAK 2

Whatcha Wanna Want

Evan is back in the saddle, bringing you new releases without pants like no one else! Guess what? GT5 is ACTUALLY coming out!

[We skipped Crap and Pick of the week because it was late and we were tired!]

Okay kiddies, every twentieth has to end sometime, but no worries, we'll be back again next week!

Zombies, Rants, and Covert Operations

 

So we're back with a vengeance, and this time AcesHigh actually showed up! With so much Black Ops and so little time, I don't even know how we kept this under three hours.

 

Mailbag:

With so much mail, even one from Fluffy, how are we to take it?! We love it, that's how! Thanks so much guys for the support!

Weekly-Whats-Up:

Aces loved InDisFest, so listen in for some incredible stories.

What We've Been Playing:

Yeah, its time. Time to talk about Black Ops. But before we delve into that, Scotty gives off some impressions of Super Meat Boy and then Me and him break into the Killzone 3 Beta discussion.

BREAK TIME!

Fuckin News:

News like armed-robberies, millions of Wiis sold, and Black Ops sales numbers don't come by so often, so sit back, grab some ice-cole lemonade, and enjoy.

You Can't Test the Test:

A segment in which Alex flies solo, but describes episode 1 and 2 of the tester in "explicit" detail.

Bash of the Week:

Alex gives a big EFF YOU to the haters and Scotty expresses some profound disappointment at the zombies come out of the ground today.

BREAK TIME 2ND STRIKE!

Whatcha Wanna Want:

Alex shall tell you what you want, what you really really want, and he is totally for serious this time. Just gotta say, the Disco is Dead.

Outro:

You know how this works, time for some sad goodbyes. :(

Radian Just Got Irrational

So we start off the show strong with Alex, Evan, Scott and Chris! No AcesHigh today because he is off busy in Georgia in INDISFEST (The Deuce)!!! With Aces gone, Chris steps up to the plate, trying to fill the big shoes!

Mailbag

We take on an email from our esteemed and most favorite Plankfan who wants to know what is up with these Klondike bars!

Weekly Whats-Up

Chris is a track star, Alex regains the love of a PS3, and Evan enjoys men who are blue, preferably in a group-like form.

What's On Tap

When we talk about what we've been playing, Alex and Chris are oh-so-iffy on Fable Trés, Scotty refuses to talk about Killzone 3 Beta, and Evan... well let's just say Evan tries to talk about Undead Nightmares, but just ends up spoiling Red Dead Redemption, and then I have to bleep it out. Goddammit Evan.

Break #1

We come back form the break strong with our interview with Luke from Radiangames! Please go check out is games on Xbox Live Indie Marketplace!

Fuckin News

With news like Indie MarketPlace getting hidden on the new dashboard, the father of MegaMan leaving Capcom, Gran Turismo 5 going gold, and NBA Elite 11 getting cancelled, we deeply believe that the universe is coming to a close. Please, remain calm, keep your bridges on, but kiss your ass goodbye.

Discussion Time MoFo's

We take a look and ten whole years of Playstation TWO, reflecting on the best games and best moments of the system's life-span. Oh, and don't forget IGN's Top 10 Best PS2 Games. Spoiler-Alert, Scott doesn't like their list.

Break #2

Whatcha Wanna Want

Yes... Call of Duty is coming out next week, and yes we are excited. Let's not forget the Sly Collection, and of course (the most important thing of all), Zhu Zhu Pets: Kung Zhu!!

Outro

Yes, we have to go, I'm sorry, but we can't just stay here and Shenanigate forever!

Its Episode Ten! Hope you didn't like our podcast before, because we just hit our peak! it's just gonna get worse from here!

[Just so you know, Rebel has some bad static for the first 2 minutes or so, but he doesn't say much so it shouldn't be too bad a problem. Really sorry though guys!]

We have been hyping it to the 'umpth degree and here they are! AcesHigh291 (Joseph) and Rebelj12a (Matt) are here to entertain! They join the regularly irrational and passionate crew of Alex, Evan, and Scott and they go bonkers!

 

We hope you like Guile's theme, because you're going to be hearing it quite a lot!

 

We break into the show with the F***in' news!

First order of business is: Its Aces' Birthday! He turns 19! Everybody: YATZI!

 

We cover the latest in news, plus don't forget, its your favorite time of the month: NPD Numbers! Holy chiz does Madden sell copies!

After news, we go into what's up and what we've been playing!

Everybody has some demo's to talk about, Evan is playing the same old shit, and Aces is totally pumped for Halo Reach!

 

Break 1

 

We come back with our Metroid Other M review. Not so many questions this week, but we did cover it a lot last week, so stayed tuned for the score [or not...].

 

Discussion time Mother F***ers!

What is mainstream? What makes a media mainstream? Will games ever be mainstream? Will games ever be seen as art? We have quite the answers to those questions, so tune in as Evan falls asleep!

[Listen hard and you can hear AcesHigh mixing his drinks]

 

Bash time! Everybody gets into this bash but let me ask you this, are they dumb, or did Microsoft truly think this guy lived in the gayest town in West Virginia?

 

Break 2

 

Whatcha Wanna Want! Evan is ready to break down the releases from this past week, and for next week!

 

We have a new contest since you darn listeners did not want to make a logo, but no worries, we have lined up a new and Metroid Themed contest for you:

We want you to think of your craziest and/or funniest way for Samus to Lose her powers! The crazier the better! Maybe Aces slipped, elbowed her in the back, her spine broke, and now she is screwed. You can't use that one, but something fun around those lines! Send them all into mailbag@ippodcast.net, and they are due to us by Extra Life! That's October 16th everybody!

 

Speaking of ExtraLife...

The news is going good! Some sad Xbox news, games and special editions galore!

 

When we think about what we've been playing, we think SCHOOL, cause we're still in it.

After our first break, we take some time to give you a Metroid Other M mini review, finally Scott lays down the smack with his BlazBlue Continuum Shift review, and Alex wrote up a nice 'ol Arc Rise Fantasia review. Find out what we though of these games!

We are here, and we love us some tangent-ass tangents.

We intro the show with some ExtraLife news! We will be totally participating in extra life! We want donations ASAP!

https://www.hospitalshelpingkids.org/ExtraLife/m.aspx?i=18662445FB3DC77DD

 

Anyway, lets get into the F***in' News!

New name for news segment ^.

 

After the news, we talk about what we've been playing. Scott tackles the classic that is Zelda 2, Evan doesn't have much good to say about the Mafia 2 demo, and Alex splooges on Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game and the Shank demo!

 

We take our first break here!

 

[Really sorry about the echo here]

 

Evan has his Red Dead Redemption Review! See what our regional open-world love thought of this country-western!

 

We break into the discussion topic about Downloadable games and Retail games!

What do we prefer? What platforms do we love the most? What are great examples of downloadable games? How about retail games that should be downloadable? Downloadable that, with a little extra, could be full retail? Pros/Cons of each?

[At some point some terrible static comes in on Evan's mic, we don't know why, sorry all, but there was nothing we could do for it, but it does go away at around 2:02:00]

 

Hey guys! Guess what we're excited for! Its a Bash! Its HKO!

 

Break time!!

 

Whatcha wanna want?

^ Yep, another new segment title

Some releases are dropping this week, and they're looking good! METROID. NEXT WEEK. OWNAGE.

 

Contest Deets:
We want a .jpg/.jpeg image (preferably pretty big) of an original logo for Irrational Passions!

We want to use this for the 'cast, the site, everything! Just make sure it includes "Irrational Passions" and "Welcome to Irrationality!"

No Alex this week, so this episode feels like an awkward exchange after an unpleasant one-night-stand.

Evan and Scott take you through the news this week, but really it should be called the Awkward News with Evan's love for CoD stories and Scott simply hating CoD. Also don't forget Scott's yawns that occur every 10 or so seconds!

 

Some interesting notes is that Evan made a mistake, CoD Black Ops doesn't come out until Nov 10th, but MULTIPLAYER INFORMATION comes out on Sep 1st. [God damned stupid Evan.]

 

Also note how Evan and Scott talk "queues" like that actually had plans for this show  (pee-shaw!).

 

We have a short What We've Been Playing Segment, since we haven't been playing much.

 

A light hearted-ed discussion topic about resurgent genres.

ALSO Next week discussion topic: Downloadable vs. Retail! Which is more viable! Email us what you think!

ALSO 3 Possible new reviews next week: LIMBO, DeathSpank, and Red Dead Redemption! Email us your questions for these games!

 

New Releases!

Ys Seven

Kane & Lynch 2

City of Heroes

 

An email from our vacant host position!

We have a four-man show this week in order to make up for screwing up last week!

 

We start out with news! We love us some 3DS, Street Fighter Cross Tekken, Batman, and Chris “<3”’s Assassin’s Creed.

 

To kick off what we’ve been been playing with a discussion about our driver’s ed classes! Scott now hates WoW, Chris never played StarCraft Uno, Evan picks Battlefield, and Alex is indifferent about BlazBlue, but it was free!

 

Break

 

We like reviews! And Alex may have liked Blacklight Tango Down, check out his review!

 

We’re back to discuss wether or not games can do drama, and universally, we think they can.

 

This week we think its fun to bash on Evan, especially since its 3v1. Titanic 2 and Building Shit are the topics, so we decide to talk about Venom and the origin of Carnage.

 

Break number 2!

 

New releases! I hope you like Madden!

 

Mailbag! We got a PM from Vamp666! Shoutout!

Please send us emails at mailbag@ippodcast.net! PLEASE! PLEASE!!!

[If you want Chris on the show more often, tell us!]

Episode 1: Welcome to Irrationality!

EPISODE ONE! WERE BACK! Except we were never here... But let's kick things off with a bang!

We do our intro and let you into the world of Alex, Evan, and Scott! Who are the irrational passionists? What do we wish to accomplish? Well...nothing really, just hope you find us entertaining.

We talk the news of the world! 3DS Rumors, when IS this thing coming to stores Reggie? Oh...you don't know? WTF?!

Playstation Patch! W00T! Bring on the premium subscription service!

Hulu Plus, AKA the story that makes Evan nervous! Ten more dollars ehh? No thanks, or maybe thanks?

NPD Numbers! These games sell like hot cakes! (Note: 'Funnest' IS actually a word)

What have we been playing? Can Scott explain LoL properly? Evan like Red Dead, but not for the story?! Alex dislikes Borderlands?! DOES HE HAVE A SOUL?!

More Hate. Bashing of the week, Steve Jobs = Asshole.

Personal bashes, whats buggin' you?

Time to discuss: Is Playstation Plus+ worth the extra cash? Probably so says Scott. But in comparison to that other premium service, does it pay off? We say "HELL YES!"
