“… 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.

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!

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 »

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?!

I’m not a lesbian on multiple levels, but I’ll ship Tracer with all the ladies for no other reason than there’s NOTHING sexier than knowing that what you’re doing is, somewhere, making Gamergate furious.

So would the Dark Souls experience would best be described as “You get knocked down, you get up again, You’re never going to keep me down”?

The Souls games have always appealed to me as a really amazing power fantasy. Yes, you get stomped into the ground, you will, with a bit of tenacity, rise up again and again till you finally rip that one bullshit boss to pieces, and you take a lovely stroll through areas that were a death trap hours ago while nimbly dancing around every trick and trap and foe the game can throw at you. Dark Souls as a series is something which leaves you feeling like an unconquerable badass at the end, a feeling which a lot of games aim… Read more »

I genuinely want to know which other animal penises terrify Gavin.

I thought your ‘Top 10s’ were all really interesting and your preferences said a lot about you. Here are mine, in order.

10. Civilisation VI
9. Superhot
8. Rise of the Tomb Raider
7. Grow Up
6. Overwatch
5. Firewatch
4. Uncharted 4
3. Blood and Wine
2. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
1. Dishonoured 2

Also: Ratchet and Clank probably would have gotten a place, because I’m a long time fan and have heard good things, but I haven’t been able to play it yet.

For 2017, I’m looking forward to South Park, Mass Effect Andromeda, Horizon Zero Dawn, Cuphead, and possibly Red Dead Redemption 2.

2016 was one of the worst years of my life, for purely personal reasons. So I’m kinda looking forward to 2017. Might be a good time to start over and try to improve things!

Also, I’m all up for more games about time-travelling lesbians! And more animal cock discussions! Hell yeah!

Dark Souls 2: I’ve been watching the Extra Credits LP of the game lately, which was recorded through this year, and the game is still super busy with bloodstains and other players everywhere. It might be weakest in terms of lore and worldbuilding, but mechanically it’s still a very solid game. Dark Souls 3 and hope (spoilers): Dark Souls 3 has a complex relationship with hope. On the surface, the game is hopeless. The world is hopeless. Mechanically, it is hopeless. But you succeed, bit by bit; and there is hope. Each new victory claws you closer to victory. You… Read more »

Don’t ask what 2017 can do for you.

I agree with Gavin, I find it very irritating when people get all smug and condescending over the types of films and TV shows that I actually find funny. Lots of people seem to forget that comedy is totally subjective, so what if I find a show like Brickleberry or a movie like Bucky Larson funny? That does not make me an idiot.

My favorite games of the year in no particular order:

Watch Dogs 2
Dead Rising 4
Titanfall 2
Doom
Quantum Break
Mafia 3
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
Homefront Revolution
The Division
Battleborn
Infinite Warfare
Re-Core
Technomancer
Gears 4
Deus Ex Mankind Divided

For top DLC I would go with Dying Light: The Following.

Thanks for addressing the shipping issue with the pins! So cool to know about the shirts coming with one though! That makes the shipping way more worth it.

“Animal Penis Discussion” is usually reserved for young horny furries and specialty sex toy makers.

I feel this person on Neogaf has never listened to Podtoid which after Max & Tara left was about seventy episodes of Jim discussing his sexual desire for Jonathan Holmes.

Ok, I have a morbid curiosity about the background picture. I’ve got a pretty good idea of what it is, and even where it’s from, but…it looks wrong? Like it’s a combination of two things?

And yes, this year has been noticeably worse in a number of ways than previous years. Or, at the very least, the badness we generally live with was made far less easy to ignore or be ignorant of.

Okay so I’ve been looking at this Frog Fractions 2 kickstarter, and…is this thing a scam? I’m reading the FAQ and the guy says he won’t refund any indie purchases that don’t have FF2, and that you just need to keep playing games to find it. And that was posted March, 2014. Glittermitten Grove was released 16 days ago. It hasn’t been hidden for years, it was never released! People found FF2 in less than 3 weeks of it actually being released, but for 2 years people were buying random games, hoping to find FF2, when there’s a good chance… Read more »

This podcast is like a refuge/cafe for the Beatnik generation of video gamers, it makes me want to write poetry. But how can we sanely live in a world without Prince, Bowie or Michael Jackson, ponder this on the tree of Woe.

You’re a little dank there, Jim. Little too much on that Adam Copeland impression.
Yeah, 2016 sucked and people died, but people die all the time, everyone is getting old, everything is terrible, and just you wait, 2017 will be even worse!

Like jeez, is this a gaming podcast or Tales from the Goth Club’s Thursday Night Poetry Wake?
