Hey JIM! I saw your tweets about the parapod. Would this week be a good jumping in point?

Hey GAV! I got back from my honey moon two weeks ago (I was in Japan). I bought two Band-Maid albums while there and I love them (especially the new album, Just Bring It). Sooo.. mostly just thanking you for the recommendation 50ish episodes again.

Hey LAURA! …I didn’t have anything to bring to your attention so… Hi! (I bet in 3 days I’ll actually remember something of relevance)

In terms of the Parapod, you’d probably want to start at the first episode of a particular series. Series 3 is all about conspiracies, and episode 4 is the new one.

Series 1 is ghosts, and series 2 is mysteries. They’re all comedy gold, but (in my opinion) series 2 is where they hit their stride.

What is Easy D to me? The capacity to encounter and catch Dhelmise more often than 10% of the time at that fishing spot in Pokemon Sun/Moon.

Andrew Barloq

I definitely was not getting it 1/10 times in that spot… the only low encounter rate Pokemon in Moon that I seem to be able to beat the odds with is Oranguru. -_-

Appretaur
Guest
Appretaur

Well, it’s effectively 1/10 if you know to reenter and exit the doorway right behind you so that the special flourish above those rocks reappears each time; without that flourish, the encounter rate becomes 1/100. That’s what Serebii says about its appearance In-depth Details, anyway…

Oh I was aware of that, but the odds were not in my favour on that one. Ended up just trading my excess Orangurus for a Dhelmise. 😛

Since it never came up in the episode I’m curious to hear what people think about the result of the NepentheZ case (for those that don’t know it was essentially the CSGO Lotto debacle but with FIFA). Personally I find it encouraging that there’s been actual action taken to tackle the often dodgy at best world of skins gambling. It also shows that there doesn’t necessarily need to be a host of new laws, all that’s needed is for the right people to give a shit.

If you’re coming to the podquisition looking for professionalism, you’re looking in the wrong place. It’s been part of the charm for a while now, wouldn’t have it any other way. A cat is hardly a dealbreaker unless there are more personal issues at bay.

Nobody was really “interrupted” though. For all the stuff they’ve done previously, a cat is now the breaking point? Weird limitations.

That’s kinda presumptuous to make a judgement on my limitations based on me finding a cat irritating. But if you like that sort of thing, there are plenty of YouTube videos to satify your cat meowing needs.

Agreed. Although Laura always surprises me with how unprofessional she is and still manages to keep a place in the game journalism industry. Constantly reporting on rumor and then shouting a, “I told ya so!” When one in ten turns out to be right, The “Hollier than thou” attitude she has given people who have differing opinions than her, the snarky attitude she gives to just about everything other people like that she doesn’t, ECT. Love Jim and Gav enough to keep listening though.

Chris
Guest
Chris

Oh fuck off. the rumour rate is way higher than that. And of course she’s snarky cos pieces of shit like you tell her the ps4 slim on her fucking desk is 3d printed and not real. If you have to cop weeks of abuse from sad wankers such as yourself about things that exist and you’ve held and played only to be vindicated, I’m willing to bet you would be smug too (you know… the way you’re smug right now about any leak which is wrong and using as “evidence” the laura is bad and should quit)

Daniel Robert Campbell
Guest
Daniel Robert Campbell

I don’t think she should quit at all. I think she should just hold her self to a higher standard and be a little more genuine. People really accused her of having a 3D printed PS4? That seems…weird. Anyhoo, I’ve already spent more time talking to you than you deserve. Take care now.

Maybe she is being genuine. I can’t speak with absolute Authority on this you since I’ve never met her personally. I’ve just met a lot of people who act like this and they tend to be putting it on as some kind of act to make themselves seem more appealing. It might not be that way with her at all. As far as holding herself to a higher standard I just don’t like it when people report on every rumor that they hear. I find it very unprofessional.

She is not “putting on an act” she has Asperger’s Syndrome, and as someone who also has AS, I will not allow people like you to insult Laura K for no reason.

Also you seem to misunderstand what Laura does, she does not leak early builds of games, she usually just reports that a certain game exists(I.E. Rush of Blood) and most of her leaks are console related stuff, so no she’s not endangering anyone’s job, don’t be so fucking dramatic. Laura is not “Sacrificing” anyone’s job, you are talking out of your ass if you actually believe.

Neither you or her have Asperger syndrome. It is incredibly insulting to those who do have it to claim you have it whenever you are just antisocial. Having help some of these poor kids with actual Asperger’s Syndrome, it sickens me whenever people do this. Those poor kids have so much trouble even speaking to another human being let alone being able to mingle among readers or do a podcast.

Look, I can tell you just WANT to fight. I’m not going to indulge that. I don’t want to hurt Laura and I don’t want to hurt you, or anyone else. You’re clearly a very vulnerable and sensitive.

Well regular people have been sneaking into E3 for years, so to me it makes perfect sense to open E3 to the public and start actually charging people for it. Agree on Saints Row, I don’t hate any of the games in the series, but for me 1 and 2 were definitely superior games to 3 and 4, as the latter two got far too over-the-top at times for my tastes and the stories were less interesting. I’m surprised that people were OK with that series becoming more wacky but were not OK with Dead Rising becoming more silly despite… Read more »

What? Nobody criticised Dead Rising for becoming more silly. Dead Rising started off incredibly silly, and then got grimdark and serious in Dead Rising 3 and people complained about THAT. And then people complained about Dead Rising 4 because it’s a shit game for twats that disrespects both the franchise’s staple gameplay mechanics and the character of Frank West by giving his name to a character that doesn’t look, sound, or act anything like him. Not because it was silly. …And I almost overlooked that other thing you said, but you’re wrong there too. An absolute shitload of people were… Read more »

I didn’t think SR4 was better then 3 by any stretch, I thought it was worse because you were only fighting one enemy throughout the whole game instead of several(fighting nothing but aliens gets tiresome after a while) plus Steelport was already less interesting then Stillwater, so a virtual version of Steelport that’s always dark(and you… Read more »

As far as paying for E3, I would suspect there are some marketing executives, now that influencers have become a significant and recognised media force, who would argue supporting Jim, Laura and others on Patreon is “paying for advertising”.

Terriosaurus Hex
Guest
Terriosaurus Hex

True, marketing execs are strange creatures whom defy logical thinking. Patreon in these cases are still optional, also remember they are “wild cards” which isn’t what a marketing exec would usually consider a bankable (is that a word? I forgets) garuntee for their positive spotlight 😉

MJC

And what exactly is Jim advertising in episodes of the Jimquisition? His episode about Nintendo’s Virtual Console sure didn’t make me want to rush out and buy more Nintendo games. His Fuck Konami News segments don’t make me want to go buy Konami games. His latest episode about GameStop sure as shit didn’t have me rushing to the nearest GameStop store to give them all of my money.

If supporting Jim on Patreon is “paying for advertising”, then Jim’s the worst advertiser in the universe.

I’m going to have to quote Seanbaby when it comes to the vast majority of GTA’s humor: “GTA V criticizes American culture with all the elegance of a grumpy pastor watching his first reality show. Missions have you acting as a paparazzo to catch a wholesome actress with a dong up her ass, massacring hallucinations after too much marijuana, and terrorizing immigrants. Most media outlets praise the game for outrageously mocking every aspect of Los Angeles, but it mocks them without any understanding or tact. If you held a gun to the head of the most secluded Eskimo seal farmer… Read more »

Guest

I think Seanbaby is a terrible writer honestly, he’s nowhere as funny or clever as he thinks he is, his critique of GTA V’s humor is totally nonsensical, very lazy and half-assed.

The article he wrote in Cracked was far more unfunny and painful then anything in the GTA games.

The humor is not “thoughtless” or “punching down” at all, if anything the game mostly punches up at rich people.

Gurphardt
Guest

No way. The jokes in that article had way more thought put into them than 9 out of 10 of GTA’s potty mouthed Pisswasser jokes.

diamond
Guest
diamond

Not really no they did not, a first-grader could’ve written a better article.

Gurphardt
Guest

Let’s be real here, you just don’t like it because it’s making fun of something you like and that’s colored your opinion of the writer.

diamond
Guest
diamond

Not really no, there’s plenty of articles on Cracked I don’t entirely agree with that are nonetheless well written, this is not one of those articles.

Terriosaurus Hex
Guest
Terriosaurus Hex

That comes off more as someone who was insulted by it really. But GTA criticises modern culture, not just American culture. It’s always interesting to see people get offended by it though. Like Frankie Boyle, nobody gets away uncriticised, including and especially himself. 😉

Yean Seanbaby REALLY sucks as a writer, in that article he just sounded like a whiny crybaby.

Andrew Barloq
Guest

To be fair, Seanbaby will take a point and then exaggerate it for effect like he did here. Whether that’s to your preference or not is up to the reader, but I think he writes more for comic effect than to make an actual argument.

The problem for me is that he feels like trying way too hard and I find it very cringe-inducing and not remotely funny in the least.

Terriosaurus Hex
Guest
Terriosaurus Hex

Never even heard of them before. Though am kinda newish to the whole game internet personality thing. Or whatever is best term for these entities. There are criticisms to be made with the series, as with most games, but that guy is masking his offense badly in the guise of criticism. Perhaps he is even aware of it now, considering it is apparently an old piece. People wise up through time.

Gurphardt
Guest

“Criticism” is giving them too much credit. GTA takes extremely broad stereotypes and caricatures and digitizes them, and then gives you a gun and says “Ha ha they sure are dumb, aren’t they?”

diamond
Guest
diamond

That’s not really true at all, that’s a very narrow-minded assessment of the game. Angry Joe did a good job summing up why GTA V was such a great game.

Gurphardt

I could give a fuck less about what Angry Joe thinks of something tbh, I’ve never found his opinions interesting or insightful.

Nope, not seeing what you’re describing really. But it does appear that perhaps something was taken to heart and now you’re using the very broad strokes you claim they are utilising to justify your distaste. It’s a very unconvincing criticism to push. There are better ones.

Ha, loved that old article. I’m happy people still remember Seanbaby’s work. Cracked hasn’t been the same for me since he (and Brockway for that matter) stopped doing weekly pieces.

He’s doing game design. Check out Calculords, it’s a damn fine mobile game he made.

It’s a card battler that uses a creature deck and a number deck. You add, subtract, and/or multiply the numbers to pay the cost of your creatures.

Yeah I remember seeing the crowdfunding campaign for that but I brushed it off, not really into card games. Haven’t really heard anything since then, though.

Polishfury5000

The sequel was going through Kickstarter, original is on all mobile.

It’s more a turn based strategy game than straight up card game. It’s not freemium or anything like that either. Worth looking into if you ever want something for your phone.

Not saying you’re wrong at all… but there is room in the world for both kinds of game and humour. I loved Saints Row 3 and 4 especially because it’s lack of subtlety. Maybe because they hit me at a time when all the games were so grim dark serious and I just wanted to have some stupid fun (which both games delivered in spades).

I ended up grabbing Nioh after reading/watching various reviews. Very happy I did, it’s been a while since I’ve adored a game this hard. Gameplay just clicks for me, and I love how it handles it’s world building by pulling from historic sources.

I also enjoy how it’s not completely poe-faced either. There’s a certain scene (after an early boss) involving a NPC and a household animal that caught me completely off guard. The hardest I laughed at a game in a long time.
