Podquisition Episode 101: Red Dead Erection (aka Grimer’s Pisslips)

On a rip-roarin’ episode of Podquisition, we discuss Red Dead Redemption 2 and the disappearance of clever naming conventions.

Also, we chat more Mafia III, more Pokermans, and more other stuff. I know there’s other stuff. I can’t remember any of it.

All of the talk of controllers and shooting and being too big for your hands…Its a bit saucy.

I really have to disagree with both Jim and Laura this week on a critical issue:

Mr. Blobby was not a man in a suit.
Mr. Blobby was The Great Satan bound into physical form and unleashed on the British peoples in the name of light entertainment.

His destructive fury and horrific screaming could not adequately ascribed to a mere man in a suit.

The problem with Red Dead Redemption 2’s name is that it implys that it is a sequel, which is silly if you played the first game. Red Dead R______ would be best.

And I’m pretty sure Pokemon’s hidden stats aren’t hidden any more.

J…I am disappoint. You allow all manner of images and words posted. But disallowed my Mr Blobby image post. I am confused. Why? Did I do image wrong?

Prymula. Real talk? Was it necessary to post a whole bunch of rapid-fire posts? Just sayin.

I like to put anyone in room 101 who unironically uses stupid fucking terms like “SJW”, “White knight”, etc.

I like autotune, like Todd in the Shadows has said, it’s not inherently bad and it’s a tool to be used with music like anything else, an artist who uses it is not inherently lazy or talentless.

I’d love to put Hour of Victory in room 101. one of the worst FPS games ever made.

Just wanted to address the whole I.R.A. controversy, if you do all of Burke’s missions, he reveals that he’s actually not sending those vehicles you steal for him to the I.R.A., that was a lie, he’s actually selling them to give money to his daughter, so that makes the controversy very laughable, you’d think the people raging against this game for “supporting” the IRA would’ve at least done their research, but I guess that’s too much to ask these days.

Uh Jim, you do realize Mafia 2 had Playboys in it as well? It didn’t reek of “desperation” to me at all.

30 minutes? that’s nothing, I spent longer then that trying to get some of the collectibles in Mafia 3(namely that one album cover in Downtown that doesn’t show up on the map until you’re almost right on top of it)

Conquest is the Battlefield mode you were thinking of Gavin. TotalBiscuit has always been baffled as to why that mode is so popular.

Michael Prymula

Battlefield 1 looks like dogshit.

A number of people actually hated the campaign, Total Biscuit most notably despised it.

I liked the previous campaigns though.

Steam controller looks like shit, Xbox One controller works best for me.

I doubt most people are too upset at not being able to play the first Titanfall, the servers are mostly dead anyways.

“white people can’t have an opinion on racism”

ABSOLUTELY

RIDICULOUS

people have to stop saying that. Your point if valid, or it isn’t. The color of your fucking skin shouldn’t fucking matter. If a white person is talking bullshit, correct him/her. Don’t fucking say it’s impossible for me to have a valid opinion.

Now they didn’t say exactly that here. But they get close, and a shit load of people are absolutely saying that and it’s one of the only supposed “SJW” things that pisses me off.

Oh Jim, idea! You do the best/worst games of the year? And I think the most bland too.
You should do a bottom 5 greenlight trailers and top 5 Best of greenlight list. What potential games look best and what shit is the most shit.

Mr. Sterling, you probably already heard but I thought you might be interested in Samsung issuing a DMCA take down of videos of a GTA V mod that turns Note 7s into grenades. Sorry I don’t have Twitter and didn’t know how else to get the word out.

I use Bandicam. I hate FRAPs huge files. It works okay for me. Of course I need to upgrade my PC which is holding me back, but that is not Bandicams fault.

Le sigh. Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? The internet is full of pedantry.

It’s kind of a shame that the NX reveal is likely going to be completely overshadowed by Red Dead 2.
