Special: Music That Makes You Go Hmmm


Posted on 01/23/2019 at 09:48 AM | Filed Under Feature

Haha, dont sweat it. Its actually strange to hear stuff normal speed now. I had on Beastcast a day after listening to your podcast and that opening jingle was so damn strange. I was like, "Why did they slow down their intro?" Then I remembered I didnt put the speed back up. I normally listen at 1.4-1.5x but I'll hit 1.8x when I'm behind after a vacation or something. 

Honestly I sometimes wish some of my mid-tier podcasts would change up hosts or just end so I can go back to normal speed. One podcast I really enjoyed lost its main host to cancer. His wife replaced him but I just dont care for her. Nothing against her personally but I dont think she fits. Especially since her husband was so different personality wise. I kind of want to drop it but I really enjoy the other 2 hosts a lot. If the main one I like of those 2 leaves or begins having a 2nd podcast, I'm out. 

Geekbox is another I'm hoping gets back to its golden days. If I didnt like both Ryan's so much I'd be done. I started when they had 4 hosts regularly and Alice Liang occasionally. I really miss Adam Finch and hope hes doing ok after his brothers passing. Even when they still had Justin Haywald it was great. I'm sure some will return next episode for the big 500.

Cant wait to dive into Witcher 3 some day. Despite finishing Divinity Original Sin 2, my friend and I jumped back in. I really love that game. I'm eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it comes. Maybe let them make the next KOTOR.

Great episode guys. Love your guys music stuff. I even drop the playback speed to normal. 

Damn is Angelo one hell of an audiophile. He got so technical and had so much VG music knowledge that I was extremely impressed. I knew he was the music man but I didn't know the true depths. 

The Witcher picks had me really close to starting it up this weekend. I gave my nephew the original PS4 one I bought years ago and upgraded to the Xbox One X digital GOTY version. I had never even opened that PS4 copy so I'm excited to try it on my X since I finally finished Divinity: Original Sin 2. Coop with my friends was a blast. We're eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it's coming. 

Overall great episode and so glad to have Angelo back for a bit. (We forgive you for Culdcept Saga Angelo, come back). Also thanks for making me go hunting for a Portrait of Ruin game. Like I need any more backlog...

Episode 143: Accomplished Nerds


Posted on 12/05/2018 at 06:13 PM | Filed Under Feature

Great show guys. Really helped pass the time at work. I thought you all had some great achievements. I can definitely empathize with your love for working at a game store Julian. Babbages was my first job at 16 and it was awesome. I absolutely loved it. I was just working for the holiday season but it was so damn fun. The people were all great and I enjoyed helping customers find games that would interest them or their children.

They wanted to keep me part-time but it was a 25 minute drive and I didnt have a car to get there. My mom took me since it would be temporary but I didnt want to put it on her permanently. I still miss that job. 

I'll second SuperStep and say that the hoarseness wasn't very noticeable as the show continued. Thank you guys for soldiering through it. 

Patrick, I'd love to hear your thoughts on Dark Souls one day. I think all your time on Bloodborne and Nioh especially will help. God of War is no slouch either. I also played the 2nd hardest difficulty. I thought it was normal but I was wrong. It kicked my ass for the first few hours but eventually you get the hang of it. 

I'll be back with my State of the Generation later.

Episode 142: NWP AMA


Posted on 11/28/2018 at 12:00 AM | Filed Under Feature

Very fun episode of NWP. Cant wait for the AMA to return. TyroneSwift was a great addition. I couldn't wait for him to dive into The Quiet Man. I watched the whole Giantbomb playthrough and damn was that rough. The only way its playable is if you get a group to play it for the laughs. I couldn't imagine this game solo. I think I'd take the cash if I had to play Quiet Man on the toilet though... 

I was personally ecstatic for the Giant Nerd Cast. I'll always welcome 4 hours of my favorite podcasts. Also cant wait for GOTY Deliberations. I feel much more invested this time since I started actually watching their series and know them much better. 

 

Stage Select: Top 3 Gaming Achievements

3. Beating The Souls Series Shieldless: I'm no pro but the fact that I was able to beat the souls series without a shield is one thing I'm proud of. It really helped me actually get good at this game because it forced me to learn how to anticipate attacks and roll. I also didnt rely on parrying at all which is another reason why I'm so proud of this. 

2. Getting the Untouchable Medal in Halo 3: Halo was one series I was great at. It was something I feel like I could have played professionally if I was the type to play 1 game for years.

My favorite moment is also bittersweet. I was jumping back into it after weeks of not playing. I hit a Lone Wolves ranked match (which is everyone for themselves) and completely dominated. I was 5 kills away from winning the match/getting the medal when someone quit and the game had to find a new host. The game continued but it stopped registering my streak. I got the last 5 kills and went 25-0 but didnt get the satisfying announcer to say, "Untouchable." Despite that I knew what I had accomplished and felt invincible.

1. Beating The Witness: The Witness isn't the hardest game I've ever played but it's definitely the most satisfying I've ever completed. Many have compared it to learning a new language and that isn't far off. Taking pen, paper, graph paper, tetris shaped cutouts, pictures, and combining them to solve puzzles was unlike anything I've ever played. I would take puzzles to work and try to solve them for when I'd play next. I'd look around the real world and see puzzles that needed to be solved (The Witness Effect?). I was actually a bit sad to have finished The Witness because I knew I'd never have that experience again. This game isn't for everyone but for those it is for, you will have an unforgettable experience unlike any other in gaming.

Episode 141: My Gamer Academia


Posted on 11/11/2018 at 06:28 PM | Filed Under Feature

Great podcast guys. I think Mike did a great job. I'm all in for an AMA. Let's see...

 

 

 

Stage Select: AMA

1. If you could be considered amongst the best of any job/profession/hobby, what would it be? Speed Runner? Actual Runner? Doctor? Wrestler? Hot Dog eating?

2. Would you accept a million dollars if you had to use a random porta-potty each time you had to use the bathroom for the rest of your life? Maybe its clean, maybe there's toilet paper, or maybe its filled to the top. 

3. Who wins between Devil May Crys Dante and God or Wars Kratos? 

4. What game would you make the other hosts play if you wanted to torture them? They have to play for 100 hours minimum and see the credits roll before they can be unchained.

5. Who's the strongest fighting game character do you think you could take 1 on 1?

6. Is Tom Nook really evil?

Episode 140: The Curse of The Halloween Havoc


Posted on 11/05/2018 at 08:14 AM | Filed Under Feature

No problem. I was just winging it. Except the Chun-Li thing. That was thought through VERY thoroughly...

Episode 140: The Curse of The Halloween Havoc


Posted on 11/03/2018 at 02:30 PM | Filed Under Feature

Great show guys. Been lucky to catch it on my midnight's at work. I wish I had submitted to stage select last week but I was having a hard time thinking of times I was scared. I don't typically get scared. 

This weeks Stage Select is also going to require some thought. I love when Patrick goes off rails with these but this one is definitely one I had a hard time wrapping my head around. I waited awhile to see some other SS answers before trying but even the others seem to be struggling. 

Well here goes. It'll be off the wall and probably illegal but whatever...

Stage Select: Gamifying Schools

3. Make a, "My Hero Academia" video game. Wait that exists already? Ok kindergartners must play Chrono Cross to learn their colors. Teens must play to realize their choices could affect everything. Adults must play to realize that some times less is more. Finally, senior citizens must play to get ice cream. Don't know what exactly that teaches them, but hey its ice cream!

2. Ever see the movie, "Cube?" Well let's do that but with teens. They must solve the puzzles and survive. Break up classes into groups of 5 and see if they work together. Maybe less death than in the movie....maybe not...

1. This ones for Superstep. How about we take his Chun-Li teacher idea and amp it up. You know those games where the more you win the more clothes that come off? Well let's do that. Every 3 right answers removes an article of clothing. 1 wrong answer puts them all back on. I know I would have studied harder. Possibly wrong choice of words...

 

Sorry guys this one was a bit tough for me. Please don't be discouraged Patrick. I love many of your SS picks since they invite some off the wall thinking. Keep up the great work guys.

Episode 139: Missing in Action


Posted on 10/15/2018 at 04:54 PM | Filed Under Feature

I definitely cant go to bat for all those characters (looking at you Korcha) but I liked having lots of options. I definitely agree that they seemed to just make some archetype and call it a day. That's why I'd love some amazing characters. Imagine an RPG with your top 20 favorite characters. It'd be amazing. 

Anyways, the podcast was perfectly fine. Audio issues are rarely an issue for me unless the volume is too low since I work in a loud industrial setting. 

Episode 139: Missing in Action


Posted on 10/12/2018 at 03:43 PM | Filed Under Feature

Glad you released this one. I was working midnight's and was very happy to have NWP pass the time. Though all the Chrono Cross bashing almost killed me on the inside. I think cutting more than half of Cross' character cast is pretty reasonable. There were 40+ in that game. I would love 20 amazing flashed out characters. 

I was surprised this episode was so long considering it was cut short but I'm glad it was. I'll be back later with Stage Select.

Episode 138: Check Out Our Huge Sacks

Great call on Road Rash. That series needs a relaunch.
