As it prepares to launch PixelJunk Shooter 2 on the PlayStation 3, Kyoto-based developer Q-Games has started a new bi-weekly "PixelJunk Radio" podcast featuring the company's Dylan Cuthbert, Bear Trickey, Duncan Flett, and Ariel Angelotti (host).

The podcast promises to talk about video games (of course), life in Japan, and other topics. So far, it's posted two episodes, the latest of which discusses "old-school gaming, the hierarchical structure of Japanese game developers, naughty bits, and quaint Italian provinces."

You can subscribe to PixelJunk Radio at this link, or if you have iTunes, you can grab it here. The developer also posts a YouTube version that features photos taken from the podcast recordings -- watch the first part of episode two after the break!:
