This episode starts with a long discussion about graphics tech, I explain what a loot shooter is to William, The Oscars and their new award for a movie people watched, then end it on two dudes talking about how to solve sexism…
We talk about my disappointment with Mario Odyssey, discuss what it would be like to date a sword that’s a cat, and I try to explain what Discord is to William even though I’ve never used it.
This week we have a lengthy discussion of Elder Scrolls lore, talk about the new Terminator movie, Terminator, and try to describe the indescribable. That is, we try to summarize the plot of Transformers: The Last Knight.
It’s post E3 review time and you guessed it… we talk a lot about Thundercats, Transformers, and Voltron. We do get to talking about celebrity voice acting, Death Stranding, and wrap up with some Cyberpunk 2077
We flex our linguistic muscles this podcast and then move on to be experts about Norse mythology. We also played some Skyrim VR and then talk about the upcoming Bill and Ted sequel.
William and I have been knee deep in a couple of oddly similar Capcom games. I’ve been revisiting Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, and he’s been enjoying Monster Hunter: World. We also discuss my disappointment with the state of science fiction. And then it’s mostly talking about pregnant Sonic The Hedgehog and other internet monsters.
Nintendo just announced a wild new peripheral system using cardboard, I’ve got a hard time staying engaged with Chrono Trigger, and we talk about what could be the dark future of Elder Scrolls games.
It’s a new year, so we talk about old games, like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy XII. We go into a discussion about loot crates and how they’re all Blizzard’s fault then move on to VR. And at some point I start laughing at William’s grim idea for a dating sim.
It’s our last episode of 2017, so we talk about some of the games we’ve played for a bit, like Golf Story and Dream Daddy. I start to talk about Shadow of War before we get sidetracked about comic book movies. Then we wrap up with our game of the year discussions.
We talk a lot about Kingdom Hearts, what a weird game Zelda 2 is, The Death of AIM, Garfield, The Godfather I & II, how Game “Journalism” is full of people who apparently don’t like video games, and Kingdom Hearts. This episode could also have been called “It Smells like the Sapranos in here.”
