PB & Jason Issue 132: FLUFF Edition One!

Hold the Jason.

Chris Iozzi here, while Jason was at work I snuck into PBJ Headquarters and did a little podcast of my own! Don't tell him, he's kinda funny about people touching his stuff.

So anyway, just like a Fluffernutter, this podcast is just like a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, but...wrong.

So take a listen while I ramble on about not Pokémon, bore you to death with my thoughts on the Call of Duty: Ghosts campaign. Swoon over Bravely Default, and ponder the future of Nintendo.

Leave your comments below, I'll comment back! For real.

I played Ghosts just because I had a copy of the game.  I found it to be nothing special, very summer blockbustery.  Which isn't necessarily my style especially since I have fallen asleep during the past couple of summer blockbusters that I watched.  I think that you explained the plot a lot better and far more entertaining than the game did.

Reenactment.  Your reenactment of the Call of Duty Ghosts story.  I wouldn't recommend playing any Pokemon game, but that is just me.

Thanks man! That part made me giggle when I listed to it again. Yeah the campaign can get a bit snoozy, but I gotta give some of those sequences some credit, especially in space. I just wanted explore around because it looked so cool, but that gets you killed, so back to SHOOT-ADVANCE-SHOOT-ADVANCE, another missed opportunity, they should have let you just admire your surroundings more. So no Pokemon, eh? Noted.

I missed out on Pokemon back when it first came out.  By the time I got around actually playing one I think that I was too old to truly enjoy the game.  I could be wrong, but Pokemon seems as though it is marketed specifically towards children, and anybody who was sucked into it when they were younger.  

I also wanted to explore space, space is endless so I don't get how you can "fall off the edge" and die.  Also, I am still confused as to how you are able to use guns in space.  I haven't done any research, but guns and space don't seem like they would mix all that well.

I also feel like since I didn't play early on I don't have the nostalgia for it.

Editing is something that evolves over time. Go listen to the first episode of NWP and compare it to now. I've become pretty proud of my editing, but those first episodes are rough.

Congrats on the first podcast Chris! You lost me when you started talking about COD, but I  keep on listening anyway. I remember when Toys R Us had those game cages. Man, what I would have given to go back there!

Qix Review Rewind

My earliest memory of Qix began sometime in the mid-90s when I saw it listed in a Funcoland price sheet (remember those?) and thought it was pronounced “quicks”. As a kid, I thought it was a rule that all words spelled with a “Q” had to be pronounced with the qu inflection. But years of expanded vocabulary eventually proved me wrong. In short, the game’s title is pronounced “kicks”- because I suppose the developer Taito wanted you to get your kicks playing Qix. See what they did there?
