To Laura regarding Inside; for each metal sphere hidden location, there is a rather bright yellow cable to follow for each one throughout the journey. And even if not, Dark souls requires community sharing of knowledge along with the P.T. demo for all the extra stuff, why does inside have to be held to a different standard? Because it was unestablished?

I want to thank all three for making this series I only found this year and it helped me a lot and is great to listen when I’m making my job, and I hope it continue strong and with many dumb jokes. My only problem with the Souls games is that you can’t pause it, I tried so many times to play it, but the game curse me with people calling the telephone in 30 in 30 minutes and people ringing the bell, what is super strange because my house is in the middle of nowhere, and shit you not… Read more »

Off topic:

Jim, if I remember right, your birthday is tomorrow (Jan 1st). Sorry if I’m wrong.
Have a happy birthday and all the best 🙂

As far as I’m concerned, if Max is a lesbian in Life is Strange, you did it wrong because Warren is clearly the best vaguely romantic connection you can have.

Oh please tell me someone introduced Mr. “There’s No Audience For Animal Penis Talk” to FurAffinity. PLEASE.

Pfft, try talking about animal vulva. THERE you got a truly controversial, biased, taboo and all other similar terms combined xD

I up the stakes – a baby animal vulva!

When you started talking about the market of Dark Souls focusing too much on the “prepare to die” aspect, I immediately was reminded of the Bartholomew trailer, which ended with the words “PREPARE TO DIE” before the break of the song, as the words “FIGHT”, “STRUGGLE”, “SUFFER”, “ENDURE”, and finally, “LIVE”, flash on the screen. It’s a really good trailer.

I thought this would amuse and disgust the community here, and yourself Jim if you happen by: Game (the notorious UK retailer) are sending out emails pushing us to pre-order the Nintendo Switch, however their site shows the price as TBC. As amusing as that is the slithering shits then go onto explain that should you pre-order the console a price of £999.99 will be registered to you, which will then at a later date be converted into the actual price. So they are coaxing people into pre-ordering something without even stating the price. I thought them offering pre-orders on… Read more »

It’s amazing, they don’t even guarantee you’ll get one on the current launch date, or if you’ll have the option of getting games with it. So you write them a blank cheque which they can cash as they like, for something that isn’t properly defined, on an unconfirmed date.

Well Game is basically a cartoon villain parody of themselves.

Yes indeed, finding places to buy consoles and games that isn’t corporate (aka satanic) is becoming increasingly difficult.

Game are terrible at mining more money out of people. They seem to be getting more desperate and are just doubling down on their greedy schemes now. The people there are often nice and i feel a bit sorry they’re stuck with such a terribly demanding employer with zero self-awareness though.
I find it’s best to go for CEX stores, or large supermarkets instead. They don’t tend to fuck around with extracting more spending from each customer as if they’re the last cow left at the milk factory.

The Outsider

I feel terrible for the employees of Game, aside from them constantly answering for the bad practices they’re not responsible for but I’ve read advancement is difficult and the pressure to push selling extras is relentless. I’m looking for a small retailer in Glasgow to use in future. There is always downloading directly, but that often means propping up Steam’s fuckery… It’s a spider’s web!

Ok… maybe I’m the odd one here but I listen to podcasts to hear people who seem neat talking about things I’m interested in, typically. If neat people want to talk about animal penises between talking about the switch and games where a minion gives birth, it seems to me that it just comes with the whole package.

I haven’t listened to this yet but how long does it take for them to agree (correctly) Dark Souls III is the game of the year?

Johan Kristian Milde
Guest
This is one of the several occasions this year that I have become a bit sad that I really haven’t been able to connect with Dark Souls III at all. It might very well be that with my daily schedule, which makes my gaming sessions sparse, short and irregular, too many times I have ventured into a level and actually come out of it worse off than when I started. One step forward, one step back, again and again and again. Perhaps the game opens up later, but I simply haven’t managed to muster the mental strength to yet again… Read more »

I do agree with you there, when time is not as disposable as it once was, games that require heavy time sinks for, at best, small tidbits of progress, at worst, a blank wall of failure often do not help the feeling of wasting the time and self away for little return. But two things helped me overcome that to warm a little more to what the games can provide; 1: starting on Dark Souls 2 which many don’t like, but it is a little easier on the early rungs, and I watched the best friends let’s play when confused… Read more »

First the lesbians came for your women, now they come for your own damn history!? (Sexual pun not intended, but acknowledged and left to simmer innocently nonetheless). The oppression and theft of the male’s property never ceases! Lesbians aren’t even real, they’re time travelling aliens hell bent on thwarting the wholesome Christian activity of procreation under the ever judging eyes of God! Or Jesus. Or whatever. Moses maybe? The point is that I’m not lonely and bitter because people of the opposite sex find me unbearable and have a mind of their own…That is impossible, all my untrustworthy, like-minded friends… Read more »

pokemon go? really? I thought ppl were finally over that hype and recognized the thing for the mediocre cash grab it was … apparently I was wrong

I’d read what Laura wrote on LPVG about it.

Horrigan
Guest
“it made me go out” – I guess for her in her specific situation it was a helpful motivator during recovery and I basically cant argue with opinion/subjective personal feelings, but game of the year? whatever floats ur boat I guess .. personally I am to old and grumpy to enjoy that sort hype .. and it might be snobbish or misguided but I ld sort of hope for a professional games critic/journalist to be more discerning … but then again this is not the first time my taste diverges strongly from Laura’s so I shouldnt be too surprised …… Read more »

She also freely admits it is not a good game.

Remus

I don’t know if I agree that the central theme of dark souls is hope. Because it keeps hammering story wise at inevitability and the pointlessness of the cycle. Hope is certainly a big part of the motivations both gameplay and story wise, it allows you to keep going and not go hollow. But in the end, all the fires will fade.

Horrigan
Guest

I m with you there .. to me dark souls message is about the inevitable repeating corruption of a cycle that is kept going out of selfishness and fear .. as you might guess I usually go for extinguishing the fire XD … maybe I m just a hateful old fart

Dark Souls is the Tubthumping of video games.

I think you’re the odd person on the internet if you don’t like discussing animal penises.

gasmaskangel

I agree. Granted, most of the people I’m internet friends with are furries.

Brendon Love

Surely jetting about the timestream makes you gay as a defense mechanism for causality so no stupid assholes end up being their own grandparents.

Sorry, that’s just the first explanation that came to mind. With the obvious exception of confirmation bias.

Mewshuji

I know earlier there was some hesitation from Jim about Ni-oh based on Alpha impressions, but the Beta improved the game in every facet that needed improving in the Alpha. It feels very SoulsBorne now without being a straight up clone, and it feels a hell of a shitload more fair in letting you get your bearings and actually winning than the BS the alpha pulled. I’d definitely recommend giving it a look-see when it comes out if you’re hankering for more SoulsBorne style games.

“… 30 minutes of him and two others talking about what animal penis they’d like to be fucked with.”

I wish.

Video game talk is just so boring to me.

Go listen to Fistshark then lol. Someone has to.

Fistshark is great but they make like 20 minutes of it once every full moon. So I want my non-videogame talk wherever I can get it.

Just remember: those who think life is shit will get exactly what they deserve. Nothing but shit.

I find the best way to deal with life is know that you can’t always dodge the shit thrown at you but you can clean it off and remember when to duck.

Laura. I’m surprised at you.

Obviously time travel makes you gay to prevent the time paradox of you becoming your own grandparent. ;D

Best of luck to you all in 2017!

Animal penises… Laura’s vaginas? Laura’s fancy new animal vaginas!? 😮

I struggle to see how Nier Automata has ANYTHING to do with Dark Souls. At all. light/heavy attacks, R2 dodge, no blocking, no stamina management, emphasis on fast paced action over methodical approach… I’m actually describing Bayonetta or DMC, with which the nier Demo shares a LOT of its DNA. Which makes sense, being a Platinum title. The demo played very well, but it truly baffles me how 2 critics speak about it as having anything at all to do with Souls. Only thing in common is Nier kinda sounds like Nioh and Nioh is indeed very souls inspired. But… Read more »

Perfectly agree Nier is closer to Bayonetta and a much better game just from the demo its willing to experiment where dark souls is to afraid of the fanboys to change .
As things like an easy mode or the ability to block invasions without going offline was shouted down for the fear the game would not hold up any more.
I was so impressed with Nier it’s will interesting to see the full game.

The point about focusing on a year for a popular string of negativity being a wee bit unhealthy is something I wholeheartedly agree with and have been thinking for some while now. For all the people that perpetuate it jokingly, there are inevitably going to be more superstitious people taking it a little more seriously, even if on a subconscious level. Because it is in the same vein as superstition, I guess in a more disposable way, considering there is no avoiding or repeating years; merely a collective apathetic passive endurance as the cosmic fabric drapes through our forever changing… Read more »

Aww, I forgive you for talking about Dark Souls this time. At least it wasn’t about the Dark Souls porn parody.

Also fucking Dark Souls?! AGAIN?!
