We're totally not gay.

It’s September 2005. The United States is suffering from a terrible post-industrial depression and the west is still a wild and untamed frontier. Subversive communists are at every corner, drugs and in the streets women burn their brassieres in an act of defiance. The world is in chaos.

Yet through this darkness, there is light. A single beam of hope of things to come. Beneath the star of DDD, a podcast was born. It would become the BEST DAMN PODCAST EVER.

MacDudes was our very first attmept at podcasting. Originally intended as a spinoff of Adam Christianson’s MacCast with a humorous twist, the MacDudes quicly turned into the IMG Podcast, and later BDPE. It may be crude, but it still has the heart of BDPE.

Blam.It’s our 50th show! Soon we’ll start talking about the how the picture show used to be a nickel and demanding senior discounts at Gamestop. Also this week we’ve got Take-Two cut-n-runnin’, price
your brand new 360 is now last-gen, and a gaming journalism battle royale.

Look how dumb the Xbox looks.
So you’ve bought youself and shiny new Xbox 360, order
the envy of every sweaty nerd in your apartment complex. The back of the box even says it can play your old Xbox games! This truly is the next generation of gaming.

But not so fast, medical son; I know what you’re saying. “But if I play my Xbox games on the 360, information pills
I’ll have to start all over! I’ll lose my 60 hours of progress in Bad Boys 2!”

Fear not fellow Will Smith and Martin Lawrence fans! Because today I’ll be giving you the complete how-to on transferring Xbox gamesaves to Xbox 360. This method is 100% legit, and dose NOT involve any hardware modification, voiding of warranties, or even any technical skills. But be warned…

Transferring Xbox gamesaves to Xbox 360 is a lot of hassle, costs around $75 dollars, and will NOT WORK WITH A LARGE PORTION OF GAMES. First, let’s talk about compatibility.

Part One: Compatibility

The Xbox game you wish to transfer must meet ALL of the following criteria to be trasnferred to the 360:

1. You have the hard drive for your Xbox 360 and a connection to Xbox Live.
2. The Xbox 1 game must be backwards compatible on the Xbox 360. A current list of compatible games can be found here.
3. Xbox 1 game save must be able to fit on an Xbox 1 Memory Card (8 Megs – 502 Blocks).
4. Xbox 1 game save must be “unlocked”, that is, transferrable to an Xbox 1 Memory Card (some game saves do NOT allow you to trasnfer even if you have enough room).

* To find out if your Xbox 1 saves meets the last two requirements, boot up your 360 with a memory card in and test it out.

These four requirements eliminates a large portion (if not the majority) of games. I found that the games I wanted to transfer most failed at least one of these steps. Mercenaries – fails on step 2. Black – fails on step 4. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory – fails on step 3. Mechassault 2 – fails on step 2. Burnout 3 – fails on step 4.

That’s not to say it won’t work with any games however. Of the games I wanted to transfer, Halo 1, Halo 2, Crimson Skies, and Sid Meier’s Pirates worked fine. So if you’ve got a game that will transfer, it’s time for the next step.

Part Two: Xbox 1 to PC

This is dumbReal dumb.

For this you’ll need one of two parts: An Xbox Action Replay or an Xbox Transfer Kit. Both are made by Datel and do exactly the same thing, but the Action Replay costs $25 and comes with a memory card transfer cable (MCTC) and a memory card, while the Transfer Kit costs $15 and comes with an Xbox 1 MCTC and a 360 MCTC (but because Xbox 1 saves are locked to the hard drive, you won’t be able to transfer via this cable). I could only find the Transfer Kit at my local Gamestop, so I picked up the memory card seperate for $10.

Once you have the required hardware and have installed the Action Replay software (included with either kit), complete the follwing steps:

1. Copy Xbox 1 save to Memory Card
2. Transfer Saves to PC Via Cable and Included Software
3. Locate the .zip file containing the save you want to transfer and extract them to a temporary directory for use later.(The location of the .zip file depends on where you installed the Action Replay software)
4. Delete the file datelinfo.xbx from any .zip files you extract.

If you’ve gotten this far without falling asleep, you’re doing better than most.

Part Three: PC to Xbox 360

For this you’ll need yet another, even more pricey ($50) part: the XSATA. This device goes between your 360 and the 360 hard drive, and allows you to mount the hard drive to a PC (perhaps even a Mac, though I never tested this), and the included software allows you to access the data on the 360 hard drive via your PC. Once everything’s hooked up and installed, follow these steps:

1. Turn on your 360 and pop in the game you want to transfer. The required updated will download to your hard drive and you should now be able to play the game (without your saves that is).
2. Turn off the 360 and mount the drive to your PC using the instructions provided with the XSATA unit.
3. Navigate to the “Compatibility” folder on Partition 3 of your 360’s hard drive.
4. Right click in the right hand window and choose ‘Insert folder’.
5. When prompted, browse to the location where you extracted the Xbox 1 gamesave to (in Part 2 Step 3). Click ONCE on the game folder (don’t double click or you’ll open it). The save is inside the UDATA folder and called something like ‘4b4e0002′.
6. Click ‘OK’ to ‘inject’ the gamesave into your Xbox1 gamesaves folder on your Xbox 360.

You should now be able to unmount the 360 hard drive from your PC, boot up the 360, and play your old Xbox 1 saves on your 360. Now to just return all this crap Gamestop.

No longer Best Friends Forever.Yeah, shop
so things have been sorta slow here at BHS as of late. But at least those of you subscribed to the feed have been getting new content every now and then.

Today we’ve got a new episode of BDPE I posted a few weeks ago, order
and I’ll be getting more stuff in the pipe soon.

On this week’s show Apple and Adobe continue their unending feud about the future of the mobile web, there
William gives us a quick look at the iPad, we take a giant dump on Final Fantasy 13’s terrible plot, level design, and progression issues.

Finally, if you’d like to discuss this week’s episode, hit us up on the forums.

Tuncer Deniz. The father I never had.THIS JUST IN. MAC GAMING IS NOT DEAD.

I know it’s hard to believe. Just ask Tuncer Deniz. But seriously, malady with Valve officially behind the Mac as a legitimate platform, maybe the Mac gaming industry won’t be limited to Magic Vines and Diner Dash.

Sure, I know what you’re saying. His Arabian Powers will quickly destroy BDPE and BHS. You’re probably right, as I often dream of Tuncer when I picture armageddon.

Also this week we discover that GAKIGATE has finally come to a close, we judge Chime on XBLA and Viva Pinanta: Trouble in Paradise, reveal the relatively unknown treasure of Shoot 1UP, discuss Infinity Ward’s designer shakeup, and finally get to some feedback.

Bobby Kotick, current CEO of Activision, is one of those cigar-smoking, scotch-swilling barons that is stifling the creativity of the industry. Not only that, he’s making an ASSLOAD of that paper along the way. So this week we discuss the role of business vs. creativity in the gaming industry.

Also on this week’s show Miller EA tells Pandemic “It’s not you, it’s me“, Modern Warfare 2 censored in Russia – Zangief upset, and triple A sequels sell like gangbusters while original IP’s flounder (sorry Tim Schafer). We also review the new Xbox Live update with Facebook and Twitter, giving us something to do on Xbox Live besides waste money on avatars when we’re drunk.

Global warming, about it
the economic crisis, ask
and the collective works of Coldplay.  All disasters that the knowledge of Blake Buck has help thwart.  But even the great Lord Buck is not above the occasional product sponsorship.

This video represents my favorite way to shoot – starting off simple within the confines of the premise, Hepatitis
and ending with something that is completely removedfrom the source.  While this is the third, and for now final “Treasured Moment”, I’m sure we’ll see a few more videos along these lines in the future.

this time detailing the problems plaguing the book publishing industry.

I think number two is my favorite – as it probably makes the most sense.  But who needs that as long as it’s funny?

It’s the fall of 2006 – back when Crocs were the hip new footwear, ambulance Nintendo Wii’s were nigh impossible to find, remedy and dinosaurs roamed the earth.  It’s at this time that William Miller and I took a trip up to New York to visit our pals Justin Fic, Bruce, and Steve Tze at Freeverse Software.

Again, looking back now, this video feels a bit long and dated, but we had a lot of fun and clearly established ourselves as the assholes of the party.

We came in search of the American Dream – we left with our asses beaten in Guitar Hero and a bad hangover.  Or perhaps, Guitar Hero and excessive drinking isn’t too far off.

On this week’s show Apple and Adobe continue their unending feud about the future of the mobile web, there
William gives us a quick look at the iPad, we take a giant dump on Final Fantasy 13’s terrible plot, level design, and progression issues.

Tuncer Deniz. The father I never had.THIS JUST IN. MAC GAMING IS NOT DEAD.

I know it’s hard to believe. Just ask Tuncer Deniz. But seriously, malady with Valve officially behind the Mac as a legitimate platform, maybe the Mac gaming industry won’t be limited to Magic Vines and Diner Dash.

Sure, I know what you’re saying. His Arabian Powers will quickly destroy BDPE and BHS. You’re probably right, as I often dream of Tuncer when I picture armageddon.

Also this week we discover that GAKIGATE has finally come to a close, we judge Chime on XBLA and Viva Pinanta: Trouble in Paradise, reveal the relatively unknown treasure of Shoot 1UP, discuss Infinity Ward’s designer shakeup, and finally get to some feedback.

We also discuss good games MW2 showed back into first quarter 2010, and give an overview of today’s most influential titles in porn gaming.

Bobby Kotick, current CEO of Activision, is one of those cigar-smoking, scotch-swilling barons that is stifling the creativity of the industry. Not only that, he’s making an ASSLOAD of that paper along the way. So this week we discuss the role of business vs. creativity in the gaming industry.

Also on this week’s show Miller EA tells Pandemic “It’s not you, it’s me“, Modern Warfare 2 censored in Russia – Zangief upset, and triple A sequels sell like gangbusters while original IP’s flounder (sorry Tim Schafer). We also review the new Xbox Live update with Facebook and Twitter, giving us something to do on Xbox Live besides waste money on avatars when we’re drunk.

Global warming, about it
the economic crisis, ask
and the collective works of Coldplay.  All disasters that the knowledge of Blake Buck has help thwart.  But even the great Lord Buck is not above the occasional product sponsorship.

This video represents my favorite way to shoot – starting off simple within the confines of the premise, Hepatitis
and ending with something that is completely removedfrom the source.  While this is the third, and for now final “Treasured Moment”, I’m sure we’ll see a few more videos along these lines in the future.

It’s the fall of 2006 – back when Crocs were the hip new footwear, ambulance Nintendo Wii’s were nigh impossible to find, remedy and dinosaurs roamed the earth.  It’s at this time that William Miller and I took a trip up to New York to visit our pals Justin Fic, Bruce, and Steve Tze at Freeverse Software.

Again, looking back now, this video feels a bit long and dated, but we had a lot of fun and clearly established ourselves as the assholes of the party.

We came in search of the American Dream – we left with our asses beaten in Guitar Hero and a bad hangover.  Or perhaps, Guitar Hero and excessive drinking isn’t too far off.

It’s Winter 2006. BDPE needs another video. So I thought, view what if William Miller and I played a video game together, mind
have a few laughs, adiposity
record it, and put the funny stuff into a video?  Seems like a fine enough idea.  In fact, I still to this day believe there are some really funny parts of this video.

However, in a half-hearted attempt to promote our site, I posted this video on the forums of SomethingAwful.com .  That was not a wise decision.  After a several hour flame fest, featuring a wide variety of foul language and grotesque photoshops of my face, I realized that gaining listeners through forum promotion is about as useful as shooting yourself in the dick.

Below are a couple of my favorite photoshops from said flame fest:

Ah, the internet. I love and hate you.  All at the same time.

No longer Best Friends Forever.Yeah, shop
so things have been sorta slow here at BHS as of late. But at least those of you subscribed to the feed have been getting new content every now and then.

Today we’ve got a new episode of BDPE I posted a few weeks ago, order
and I’ll be getting more stuff in the pipe soon.

On this week’s show Apple and Adobe continue their unending feud about the future of the mobile web, there
William gives us a quick look at the iPad, we take a giant dump on Final Fantasy 13’s terrible plot, level design, and progression issues.

Tuncer Deniz. The father I never had.THIS JUST IN. MAC GAMING IS NOT DEAD.

I know it’s hard to believe. Just ask Tuncer Deniz. But seriously, malady with Valve officially behind the Mac as a legitimate platform, maybe the Mac gaming industry won’t be limited to Magic Vines and Diner Dash.

Sure, I know what you’re saying. His Arabian Powers will quickly destroy BDPE and BHS. You’re probably right, as I often dream of Tuncer when I picture armageddon.

Also this week we discover that GAKIGATE has finally come to a close, we judge Chime on XBLA and Viva Pinanta: Trouble in Paradise, reveal the relatively unknown treasure of Shoot 1UP, discuss Infinity Ward’s designer shakeup, and finally get to some feedback.

Bobby Kotick, current CEO of Activision, is one of those cigar-smoking, scotch-swilling barons that is stifling the creativity of the industry. Not only that, he’s making an ASSLOAD of that paper along the way. So this week we discuss the role of business vs. creativity in the gaming industry.

Also on this week’s show Miller EA tells Pandemic “It’s not you, it’s me“, Modern Warfare 2 censored in Russia – Zangief upset, and triple A sequels sell like gangbusters while original IP’s flounder (sorry Tim Schafer). We also review the new Xbox Live update with Facebook and Twitter, giving us something to do on Xbox Live besides waste money on avatars when we’re drunk.

Global warming, about it
the economic crisis, ask
and the collective works of Coldplay.  All disasters that the knowledge of Blake Buck has help thwart.  But even the great Lord Buck is not above the occasional product sponsorship.

This video represents my favorite way to shoot – starting off simple within the confines of the premise, Hepatitis
and ending with something that is completely removedfrom the source.  While this is the third, and for now final “Treasured Moment”, I’m sure we’ll see a few more videos along these lines in the future.

World renowned scholar and statesmen Lord Buck makes his second video appearance, healing
this time detailing the problems plaguing the book publishing industry.

I think number two is my favorite – as it probably makes the most sense.  But who needs that as long as it’s funny?

It’s the fall of 2006 – back when Crocs were the hip new footwear, ambulance Nintendo Wii’s were nigh impossible to find, remedy and dinosaurs roamed the earth.  It’s at this time that William Miller and I took a trip up to New York to visit our pals Justin Fic, Bruce, and Steve Tze at Freeverse Software.

Again, looking back now, this video feels a bit long and dated, but we had a lot of fun and clearly established ourselves as the assholes of the party.

We came in search of the American Dream – we left with our asses beaten in Guitar Hero and a bad hangover.  Or perhaps, Guitar Hero and excessive drinking isn’t too far off.

No video I have ever made has created as much hate as the one positioned above this sentence.

It’s Winter 2006. BDPE needs another video. So I thought, view what if William Miller and I played a video game together, mind
have a few laughs, adiposity
record it, and put the funny stuff into a video?  Seems like a fine enough idea.  In fact, I still to this day believe there are some really funny parts of this video.

However, in a half-hearted attempt to promote our site, I posted this video on the forums of SomethingAwful.com .  That was not a wise decision.  After a several hour flame fest, featuring a wide variety of foul language and grotesque photoshops of my face, I realized that gaining listeners through forum promotion is about as useful as shooting yourself in the dick.

Below are a couple of my favorite photoshops from said flame fest:

Ah, the internet. I love and hate you.  All at the same time.

Ah, hair
nothing beats the smell of dead Nazis in the morning. They should make that an incense, for sale
so I can enjoy it anytime. Anyway, here’s a video review I did of Call of Duty 2 for InsideMacGames.com waaaay back in the day (fall 2006). Though it feels a bit crude to me now, it’s got some solid jokes in it. So click that little play button already. Or don’t. Who do you think you are, buster?

No longer Best Friends Forever.Yeah, shop
so things have been sorta slow here at BHS as of late. But at least those of you subscribed to the feed have been getting new content every now and then.

Today we’ve got a new episode of BDPE I posted a few weeks ago, order
and I’ll be getting more stuff in the pipe soon.

On this week’s show Apple and Adobe continue their unending feud about the future of the mobile web, there
William gives us a quick look at the iPad, we take a giant dump on Final Fantasy 13’s terrible plot, level design, and progression issues.

Finally, if you’d like to discuss this week’s episode, hit us up on the forums.

Tuncer Deniz. The father I never had.THIS JUST IN. MAC GAMING IS NOT DEAD.

I know it’s hard to believe. Just ask Tuncer Deniz. But seriously, malady with Valve officially behind the Mac as a legitimate platform, maybe the Mac gaming industry won’t be limited to Magic Vines and Diner Dash.

Sure, I know what you’re saying. His Arabian Powers will quickly destroy BDPE and BHS. You’re probably right, as I often dream of Tuncer when I picture armageddon.

Also this week we discover that GAKIGATE has finally come to a close, we judge Chime on XBLA and Viva Pinanta: Trouble in Paradise, reveal the relatively unknown treasure of Shoot 1UP, discuss Infinity Ward’s designer shakeup, and finally get to some feedback.

We talk about so much garbage this week I don’t even want to list it all. EA, the NFL, DJ Hero, Activision, and the responsibilities of being a large publisher. We also discuss good games MW2 showed back into first quarter 2010, and give an overview of today’s most influential titles in porn gaming.

Bobby Kotick, current CEO of Activision, is one of those cigar-smoking, scotch-swilling barons that is stifling the creativity of the industry. Not only that, he’s making an ASSLOAD of that paper along the way. So this week we discuss the role of business vs. creativity in the gaming industry.

Also on this week’s show Miller EA tells Pandemic “It’s not you, it’s me“, Modern Warfare 2 censored in Russia – Zangief upset, and triple A sequels sell like gangbusters while original IP’s flounder (sorry Tim Schafer). We also review the new Xbox Live update with Facebook and Twitter, giving us something to do on Xbox Live besides waste money on avatars when we’re drunk.

Global warming, about it
the economic crisis, ask
and the collective works of Coldplay.  All disasters that the knowledge of Blake Buck has help thwart.  But even the great Lord Buck is not above the occasional product sponsorship.

This video represents my favorite way to shoot – starting off simple within the confines of the premise, Hepatitis
and ending with something that is completely removedfrom the source.  While this is the third, and for now final “Treasured Moment”, I’m sure we’ll see a few more videos along these lines in the future.

It’s the fall of 2006 – back when Crocs were the hip new footwear, ambulance Nintendo Wii’s were nigh impossible to find, remedy and dinosaurs roamed the earth.  It’s at this time that William Miller and I took a trip up to New York to visit our pals Justin Fic, Bruce, and Steve Tze at Freeverse Software.

Again, looking back now, this video feels a bit long and dated, but we had a lot of fun and clearly established ourselves as the assholes of the party.

We came in search of the American Dream – we left with our asses beaten in Guitar Hero and a bad hangover.  Or perhaps, Guitar Hero and excessive drinking isn’t too far off.

No video I have ever made has created as much hate as the one positioned above this sentence.

It’s Winter 2006. BDPE needs another video. So I thought, view what if William Miller and I played a video game together, mind
have a few laughs, adiposity
record it, and put the funny stuff into a video?  Seems like a fine enough idea.  In fact, I still to this day believe there are some really funny parts of this video.

However, in a half-hearted attempt to promote our site, I posted this video on the forums of SomethingAwful.com .  That was not a wise decision.  After a several hour flame fest, featuring a wide variety of foul language and grotesque photoshops of my face, I realized that gaining listeners through forum promotion is about as useful as shooting yourself in the dick.

Below are a couple of my favorite photoshops from said flame fest:

so I can enjoy it anytime. Anyway, here’s a video review I did of Call of Duty 2 for InsideMacGames.com waaaay back in the day (fall 2006). Though it feels a bit crude to me now, it’s got some solid jokes in it. So click that little play button already. Or don’t. Who do you think you are, buster?

Another early work of Best Damn Podcast Ever in the Fall of 2006. This video actually turned out to be our most popular for quite a long time.

Segata Sanshiro is one of those things you happen upon the internet one day and you’re not really sure what it is, rx
but you know it’s awesome. This short documentary traces the life and death of one of the greatest video game advertising icons ever.

By the end of 1997, remedy the Sega Saturn had completely failed in the United States, and Japanese sales were in trouble as well. Sega knew it had to come up with a genius marketing plan to stay competitive. And there was only one man for the job: SEGATA SANSHIRO.

At the time I made this video, these clips were quite hard to come by, and I thought the only responsible thing to do would be to compile as many of them as I could and give some backstory.
