Podquisition Episode 109: I Had A Plastic Cock (And Mum Didn’t Care)

A discussion about Wicked Willies becomes a Jim Sterling origin story, hasty rewrites result in a superior Final Fantasy XV porn parody, and Gav’s Music Corner leads to some lovely Cardiacs discussion.

Elsewhere, there’s talk of Super Mario Run, a changed opinion on The Last Guardian, and Nintendo pretends it invented Minecraft first.

Also also ALSO, Gav’s new album is out now!

Jim I’m sure somebody has already reminded you that your best-known perfect Jimpersonation is of Skeletor rather than Rita Repulsa or Mr Claw, but I would like to point out that you also have an incredible impression of Jackson Publick as The Monarch in your repertoire which I would love to hear more of. It’s hilarious.

When exactly has Gavin stated that regarding Christians?

boylandtheliberator
Guest
boylandtheliberator

When they have made anti Christian comments and look I understand wea re talking about subjective opinions

drownedsummer
Guest
drownedsummer

Having listened to every episode I don’t recall a point when Gavin has ever stated such a thing. So it would be hard to change a stance which has never been taken in the first place.

boylandtheliberator
Guest
boylandtheliberator

I would point to the episode namely metal gear nake dad or something like that where he says stuff or where he talked about lauras upcoming nuptuals and how certain Christian churches don’t do homosexual marriages. BTW to say I disagree witht he Christian churches who dotn do it.

drownedsummer
Guest
drownedsummer

And is what he states wrong? Because that’s actually an entirely different statement to the one that you’re claiming his stance is. As that would be taking one thing and interpreting it to mean something entirely different.

boylandtheliberator
Guest
boylandtheliberator

I agree interpretation is subjective unfortunately and it was a subjective opinion. Again its hard to offend me as a Christian as I don’t find jesus Christ zombie puncher to be offensive , I find stupid but not offensive, whoever I don’t come to this podcast be put in with the fuckwits who do make up certain parts of Christianity. Maybe I being a little harsh because since trump being president was blamed on us (I am fromt he uk and find trump’s views at the best troubling at worst abhorrent)

drownedsummer
Guest
drownedsummer

The problem is that isn’t offering an opinion it’s making a general point that some Churches don’t support gay marriage, which you’ve just stated yourself is the case. But that’s an entirely different from stating all Christians are homophobes.

You can state that some people who eat meat don’t eat chicken but that doesn’t a provide a wider view on their views of meat eaters as a whole.

I agree hwoever we have to be careful when talking about specific grousp we don’t generalise. Now ia m a qauker who are not homophobic and before that wasa universialist. Both ebcasue of my pro gay views. Now thing is there are a lot of Christians whoa re lgbt who feel exclude enough without someone making them feel more soon.

The problem is that it’s rather clear that Gavin’s never actually made the point you were claiming in your initial post.

Erm he did if you listen to the podcast, I think tis fiar to raise concerns.

drownedsummer
Guest

No because you’ve gone on to clarify that what Gavin stated is not all churches support gay marriage. Which is just a factual statement lacking an any opinion or judgement.

So you kind of need to quote the exact line at this point.

Ok int eh episode they talk about steam doing sexual content and they say it without saying it.

He implies that religion – specifically Christianity (both Protestant and Catholic) – is to blame for the still-ongoing problems western societies have with accepting homosexuality (or sexuality in general) as a perfectly natural thing.

Look it ry to take correction when possible as that way you stay not only honest but rational. I understand offense is subjective as what offends me may not offend you. Now I am going to say this misremembered what the point was sorry I forgot what it was I knew it was a bigoted statement abotut eh faith. Now look I understand with live in a post modern society where nuance gets thrown out for extrees. However all I ask is that therer are tons of sex positive Christians and some in history as well.

There are many problems here one of which being you don’t even seem certain which podcast it was in, which is fair when there have been 109 but if you’re going to reference it specifically you can’t be vague about it. As that point you need to be able to state it was episode eight when Gavin said ‘If you think you’re jizzing in my hair you can fucking jog on’ Second the statement you originally referenced clearly wasn’t a bigoted statement just a simple statement of fact that you very clearly agreed with, which also makes the notion of… Read more »

You’ve not posted what was stated you’ve vaguely referenced a conversation which took place in one podcast out of a 109 and haven’t even mentioned which one just that the title featured the word semen. If you’re going to post what was stated the standard convention for that would be to put the specific comment in speech marks or just list the episode number and state the time in the episode when it occurs

If you’re referring to what was stated in 41 that has been posted although not by yourself and isn’t to do with what you’re now discussing.

It’s fine that those people exist, but they do not represent the majority. Not even a significant minority. And that’s the point. Historically, the vast majority of Christians have been very sex-negative, and it’s strongly influenced the culture of multiple countries and peoples. The influence is so strong that even after hundreds of years, we still can’t shake the idea that sex is somehow “bad”.

And if you’re taking offense at that, the truth, then you need to reconsider your priorities.

boylandtheliberator

It was in spunk something or other however I think tis was clear to me it was about a particular subset so I wasn’t offended by that.

drownedsummer

Go onto the Soundcloud page which has a list for all of the episodes and find the name of the specific episode. There are multiple episodes of the show which have semen in the title so ‘spunk something’ doesn’t narrow anything down that’s like saying it was a picture of Prince that featured him wearing purple.

Even the initial point became muddled and confused. So you’re saying Gav stated some churches don’t support gay marriage and you’re also stating some churches don’t support gay marriage…. ummm okay then.

that was from another podcast namely spunk someof another rnow htat I ddi find offense as I thought it was pretty clear he was talking about a certain subset.

drownedsummer
Guest

Do you particularly think it helps when you can’t even be certain which podcast you are referencing? As the one you already referenced at this point has been shown to not feature any comment along the lines of what you are claiming. So this isn’t subjectivity or interpretation when the claim is completely and utterly divorced from the reality of the actual statement.

I am willing to admit that I am wrong buyt abotus ex you are talking abotua vicotiran/puritanic attitude that chrisitanity did not have centuries and only cmae about when men were concerned about owmen turning heads as it were.

1. I mean no offense, but your posts are very difficult to read. 2. Considering Christianity is a an offshoot of Judaism, and the Old Testament is where a large portion of the justification for anti-homosexual attitudes come from (and some New Testament, too), it’s safe to say Christianity has *always* had a problem with homosexuality. To the point where it was punishable by death. If anything, Christianity has been heavily “liberalized” since its inception, becoming much less hard-line on numerous points of contention. Thus the creation of the “fundamentalist” movement. Point being, the Victorian Era might have been extra-rife… Read more »

No, it happened WAY before then. David and (Solomon) had concubines, but that was definitely a wrong thing to do according to the Bible. And neither testament has *anything* that’s even implicitly “sex positive”.

David was “a man after God’s own heart”, and the entire point of him as any kind of example is that God could use a man despite his flaws. Let’s not forget that he was also an adulterer and a murderer. And you keep bringing up individuals that had no real sway within the Christian religion. John Milton was a writer, not a priest. He did no lead congregations, and he was absolutely, in no way, “devout”- not in any way related to the church, at least.

Probably not I’m failing to see what that has to do with what was being discussed, which with each post is moving further and further away from that and is becoming quite clear that the point that inspired your original post was never stated or if it was the actual statement was little more than a harmless general observation that you’ve twisted it so far beyond the original context and intent that it has nothing to do with what was actually stated.

Lying is potentially too strong a word really. I think he’s just very, very confused. Although the point in the first comment is slanderous I do kind of get the admittedly broken logic behind it. Although you would have to be quite naive to think that making that point was going to go over well.

Would there be the same reaction? Of course not the reaction in that situation would be ‘What the fuck is he on about?’ because your original comments are based on what you think was stated in an episode of PDQ.

The responses you have received are based on your interpretation of Gav’s comments and people stating how you’re incorrect regarding what was stated.

Being a Roman-Catholic and having been an avid listener to this podcast, I can say with 100% confidence that you are talking out of your ass.

He’s certainly pro-gay marriage as a man who grew up with lesbians and he is a resident of a country that has legalized gay marriage. But at no point have I seen him take a stab at any religion, or anymonitory for that matter, in a malicious manner. He’s one of the nicest people to inhabit the internet.

And I for one, will not stand silent while you try and smear his good. name.

Over-animation is a problem in Watch Dogs 2, as Marcus’s stealth takedowns last way longer then they should. 90% of the time I got spotted by enemies while trying to sneak through an area was because a takedown wouldn’t finish fast enough for me to be able to get out of the enemies line of sight, the takedowns in the first Watch Dogs in comparison were a lot faster and made it easier to be stealthy.

Don’t get why people don’t like the share button. I love it. I’ve never taken so many screenshots or video recordings of games I’ve been playing in my life. I don’t generally even bother on my PC because Nvidia’s ‘shadow play’ can be annoying, but thanks to the share button I have some great snips of footage of cool stuff on the PS4.
It’s partially handy when you just want to quickly share a screenshot of somthing with friends.

Share Factory could us a bit of work – it’s a bit fiddly sometimes but for video editing software that you use with a controller it’s amazingly easy to use.

I actually have a backlog of videos’s I took of Champions in ‘World of Final Fantasy’ that I want to edit together.

That’s kind of always been the case with PDQ though which is far more toned down since Podtoid/Dismal Jesters.

If those porn writers had any talent and/or passion for writing, would they even be doing porn? Just wondering. With that Nintendo part about Minecraft, there was this story a while back about a prototype N64 game in which the details in the article did compare it to Minecraft, with resource gathering and building, something to do with it needed more computing power or something, I can’t remember exactly. It was reported on the Escapist I am certain. So there is an element of truth to that I believe, just not sure what to search for to find it again… Read more »

While I’ve not listened yet but from what I recall Gav’s never been a big JRPG fan.

On a JRPG note Lost Odyssey is currently free on Xbox Gold.

It’s in the BC library as well. And that’s the best thing Microsoft has done in a long while.

Ah. I don’t have an Xbox One and donated my 360 to my Mum so she could use Netflix/Prime

Is the audio brexiting for anyone else too? I’ve tried mobile through my browser, desktop browser and the podcast and the audio drops completely silent for seconds at a time, while the track continues, picking up a few seconds later. Loosing only like 2 or 3 seconds a time, but it’s happened 3 times so far and I’m only 3:09 in

Can’t say I’m hearing it myself, I gave the first 3:09 a thorough listen through and didn’t encounter any drops.

Kk, I’ll restart my lappy, redownload the podcast and try again. Its snowing out here so internet is spotty. Could very well be bad downloads on my end.

Yeah, I eventually got it. Restarted the lappy, waited an hour or so for the snow to clear up then redownloaded from iTunes. Worked fine.

I got a suggestion for another game you can review this month-Life is Strange, since I was kind enough to send you the complete first season.

I still have so many people say to me “But Trico is supposed to be not listen to you at first, just like a real dog creature thing.” and I laugh them out of the room.

To be fair, isn’t there a mechanic kinda’ like that in Pokemon these days? Where you have to pet them and give them treats and the like, or else they stop listening to your commands in battle?
Its not exactly the same, but I think there is a precedent for animals in games acting more…animalistic rather than a remote controlled car with fur.

I’m playing Moon and so far I’ve entirely avoided that mechanic without any issues. Sadly the opposite isn’t available keeping them housed in tiny spaces and only bringing them out when you need them…. oh wait that mechanic has always been there.

Firstly, the petting and giving treats mechanic raises their ‘affection’ for you from a base level, and all it does is grant you bonuses (exp bonus, shaking off status effects, focus band, etc) Secondly, the disobediance mechanic in Pokemon is separate from ‘affection’ as it is tied to, in gens 1-6, what badges you have, and in gen 7 which grand kahuna stamps you have. If you don’t have a certain badge/stamp, pokemon above a certain level will start to disobey your commands.

It doesn’t matter if there’s a precedent for it. If The Last Guardian had released with a whole bunch of DLC and an extra chapter available as a preorder bonus, it wouldn’t make it okay because ‘there’s precedent for it’.

I don’t think they stop listening to you in battle, petting them and feeding them just gives them certain benefits in battle afaik.

I think anyone that says that Cosplay as Trico and repeatedly punch them in the face for several hours ignoring their pleas for you to stop.
