Episode 5: Kung-Fu Panda 2, Chinese Food & Tea

Listen on
Duration: 52:15 m

Food: Authentic Chinese vs Americanized Chinese
Drink: Tea

This week (after being left behind by the Rapture) we take on American and native Chinese cuisine in honor of Kung Fu Panda 2. Brian and Rando get you up to speed on how to find real Chinese food while we give you the lowdown on DiRT 3, how Obama will react to his gift of The Witcher 2, and if the Roxio Gamecap is worth it. All three of us take a break from the booze-fest and drink Cock and Bull ginger beer to wash it all down, along with copious amounts of tea (and we give you some good green tea tips). The E3 dry spell has us in 'Limbo', with only games like Bumpy Road to entertain us and the hope of Hunted: Demon's Forge being good. Enjoy!

Hosted by: Rando Evans, Matthew Netzley, and Brian Phan

Episode 4: Cheap Beer, Video Game Girls, and Everything In Between

Listen on
Duration: 33:58 m

The Lautering Bytes crew get together for your weekly shot of video game and beverage chatter. Episode 4 takes you into the dark world of cheap beer, video game girls (even our on-set female throws in a comment), their greatest achievements in gaming, experiments on gamecrush, and more, all while we debate if Dead Space is actually scary and why Drake from Uncharted 2 has moral dilemmas. We also chat about the past, present and future. Phan breaks a Root Beer bottle in anger and it takes all three of us to hold him down. The cops come and shut the podcast down. We also give props to the guy who has beaten Mass Effect 2 the 2nd most times on Earth.

Listen on
Duration: 54:27 m

Food: Chili Dogs
Drink: Indian Wells Mojave Gold

In preparation for L.A. Noire, the hosts of Lautering Bytes dig into the L.A. chili dog - the perfect steak-out food for L.A. detectives across the city. We also talk of the perfect drink to go with it: Mojave Gold, a straight up cool, simple pilsner straight from the local Death Valley Indian Wells Brewery. In addition, Brian rants about Brink while drinking Virgil's Root Beer and the crew discusses titles like GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, and the Assassin's Creed series, including the upcoming title, AC Revelations. We also chat about bro-shooters (Modern Warfare, Homefront, etc.) with love and attempt to talk Diablo III.

Food: Bulgogi (Korean Steak)
Drink: Arrogant Bastard Ale

The official 'pilot' episode – Rando, Matt, Brian and Foxy talk about 'Bros' of War 3, Portal 2,Mortal Kombat, memories of Kingdom Hearts, Nintendo 3DS, Arrogant Bastard Ale, Korean Steak and other less important things, including Choose Your Own Adventure books and Star Warsnovels. Brian drinks Pepsi throwback and finds there is very little phlegm in the back of his throat afterwards (unlike after drinking all those other sodas). Scorpion and Kratos visit the set and give everybody massages – things get awkward. Rando discovers he needs to talk slower and apologizes ahead of time.

Food Recipe: Korean Bulgogi by Brian Phan


Korean BBQ Marinade (can be purchased at asian markets)
1 lb Sirloin or premium cuts of beef such as Rib Eye

[Korean markets may also carry pre-marinaded bulgogi for convenience]


Thinly slice the beef
Place been in marinade at least 1 hour prior to cooking (preferably longer, overnight would be best)

Place marinaded beef on grill until cooked through. (If you don't have a grill you can also pan fry the beef.)

It should not take more than a few minutes as the beef will cook quickly due to its thinness.

Serve the beef over rice and enjoy.
