Controversial opinion: I feel Jim calling out Nintendo for shutting down fan-games was extremely vindicating for me as someone who wants to make one himself, ESPECIALLY considering that, out of all the corporations that have shut down fan-games, Nintendo is the most consistently vicious about.

I can’t listen to these any more…. Used to one of the highlights if my week, rapidly degenerating into A: people who can’t even be assed to be interesting anymore and B: the Roosterteeth podcast in that it’s not even about video games for half of it anymore. Very disappointing.

Pretty sure there’s at least one winner on here who’s going to say “Well Nintendo is a Japanese company and the people who made Binding of Isaac are Americans, so Nintendo couldn’t have known the problems they had” or some such rubbish.

Internet works over in Japan, kid(s.) They could’ve looked that up and found the answer in a matter of seconds.

I’ll eat anything you’ve mentioned, but I’ll tell you what, people who put mushrooms in a fry-up can get fucked. Actually people who put mushrooms in anything are wrong and should feel ashamed of their words and deeds.

Or rather I should say, I’ll eat anything you mentioned in the bit about breakfast. I don’t particularly want to eat a dildo cake or a, er, ‘used’ banana.

Jim, speaking as one of the two people who listen to this, the only reason why we’d ever not want to hear about your back or any other problem you’ve had is because we feel sad when sad things happen to you.

The Irish breakfast has white pudding as well as the black pudding.

I love both

As someone who eats the fried tomato on a full-English I am appalled by the lack of representation on this podcast.

Blood pudding can get fucked though. I don’t care what it tastes like, it looks like a bowel-cancer shit.

Why does everyone want 1-2 Switch to be a pack in? I’d rather have the option of spending an extra $50 than have it forced upon me.

I think Nintendo will be a much better company once they inevitably go third-party, cause as a console manufacturer I have to say they’ve really sucked since the latter days of the Wii and they are already making the same mistakes with the Switch that they made with the Wii U:http://www(DOT)polygon(DOT)com/2017/2/17/14260808/nintendo-switch-online-platform-worries Thanks for not judging people for pre-ordering Jim, I pre-order because it’s convenient for me. A few weeks ago some clerks in my local Gamestop were talking about how they had three Switch pre-order cancellations(wasn’t sure if they were cancelled due to customers cancelling them or due to Nintendo… Read more »

So… what was the song they were singing at the beginning?

On the subject of pre-orders. So I think perhaps pre-order culture has reached the point of being very fucking silly. I walked past Waterstones and noticed them advertising Philip Pullman’s return to the Northern Lights setting with a new trilogy…. out in October not even a cover for it yet.

I’ll order it on Amazon a week before release thanks.

Haven’t listened to the whole episode yet. Just got through the beginning. Jim, I just want to say congratulations on the dismissal. I’m sure it’s a load off. Also, regarding talking about your life and chronic pain, I liked those talks. I also have chronic pain due to an injury. I’m actually going into surgery this Tuesday after a year since the original injury. It was nice to hear about another person’s experience with it and inspiring to see another person still keep going and working and doing his best in spite of it. Thank you and I hope that… Read more »

I can’t remember the specific details of the Isaac thing, but I recall problems with the game being discussed on another podcast recently. Something to do with balance issues or bugs after the most recent update in the PC version that resulted in a lot of negative feedback and made the game less fun for a lot of players. Apparently the devs are working on this currently.

It’s very possible that they’ve delayed the game in order to work out those issues before release. Seems silly to not announce it if that’s the reason though.

Actually, rubber up banana if you’re sharing it with friend. 🙂

Right, so I posted this joke thing on the preview video about how the podcast would be Jim celebrating and it not being posted in the morning because Laura couldn’t edit out the celebrating. That was before it actually posted.

I knew a lawsuit was hard on anyone, but… damn. Now I feel bad for making fun.

The lawsuit ending about a week or so after the announcement of Steam Greenlight’s execution date is…poetic, I guess is the word. The most ridiculous and extreme shithead developers born out of Greenlight have their shittiest and most desperate move to silence a critic shut down, and any avenue to repeat it closed, right as the bastard den that spawned them burns down. Like the end of a saga.

Super Bomberman R isn’t a re-release of anything, it’s a new game. I know the Switch launch isn’t up to much and Konami is Konami, but be fair, credit where it’s due.

I worked a few years as a Secondary school teacher, and was utterly appalled that the kids in my class were born *after the year 2000*. They were old enough to be wearing blazers and ties at work *but literally didn’t exist when the new millennium came in*. That made me feel seriously old.

Jim I found something you’ll love in Berserk and the Band of the Hawk. During those loading screens you can control Puck and make him attack the “Now Loading…” text hilariously.

Laura saying “video games” to try to talk about video games always reminds me of good old Holmes from golden age of podtoid.

In honor of your victory Jim, I am not going to complain about anything in this podcast.
Also I might play some Bloodborne tonight.
