That idiot who bitched to Jim in that email about him talking politics reminds me of all those dumbfucks whining about Total Biscuit talking politics on the Co Optional podcast(he made a statement in support of the victims of the Mosque massacre in Canada and spoke out against the Muslim ban), you had all these shitheads saying “i’ve been a fan of TB since 2005 but he has no business talking politics!” and other bullshit like that(despite TB giving people an option to skip over the 7 minutes of politics by clicking on a video annotation). To those people I… Read more »

I don’t understand hatred toward red and blue joycons configuration. I think red and blue switch looks pretty dope, finally something different from black / sliver electronic equipment, and I’m not even a Nintendo fun. Is this some kind of OCD thing? Red and blue looks so much better than just the same colors on botch sides.

Yikes! 12 out of 10! is a TERRIBLE score. It works out to 12 / 3628800, which is about 0.0000330688 out of 10.

Personally I thought Dying Light, the Dead Island games, Watch Dogs 2, Far Cry 3 and 4 and Mad Max all had interesting sidequests. I feel the same way about Zelda that Gavin and Laura feel about Killzone, it’s just one franchise that is definitely not for me even though I get why people are into it, so I couldn’t care less about Breath of the Wild(and weapon degradation that you can’t repair is bullshit). Dark Souls fanboys are pretty damn insufferable. I want a Division movie. It really does sound like Nintendo rushed the Switch out way too fast,… Read more »

This was probably my favourite one to listen to in a little bit. Not that the past weeks have been bad, it’s just I think with everyone involved being so busy it’s felt a little more like an obligation than it has. Maybe that’s just projected from my life, but either way, there was a lot of energy and joy to this episode and it really made my day listening to it! So thank you as always Jim, Gav and Laura!

I am a nintendo fan and I don’t loathe you Jim. you could give BOTW a 5/10 and I won’t be trolling you. I can accept the fact that some ppl have different opinions than me. I thought your recent Jimqusition on their youtube policies was pretty good too.

Well, I remember this soviet cartoon from my childhood, it’s called Ну, погоди!, Nu, pogodi! which I believe means “I’ll show you!”. The wolf was compulsive smoker, always with cigarette on the screen, it was wonderful. Even better soviets made this “Nu, pogodi!” branded game and watch toy which Nintendo totally ripped of a few years earlier, I don’t know how they managed to do it, but stil…

The only review score I care about when it comes to Nintendo games is Jim Sterling’s, everyone else, be they Youtubers or Game sites / magazines have such a bias for Nintendo that their scores are never believable.

Totally agree with Jim regarding the Killzone story & universe. A completely squandered opportunity to go above the standard CoD formula… instead we got Rico (one of the worst characters in a game,ever) yelling fake racist slurs for three whole games.

“You Laura your way to one” Does that mean Laura 3D printed a Switch along with a copy of Breath of the Wild?

I remember the Podquisition episode (which was titled Dank Cumsock, of course) in which Gavin asked, “Am I supposed to know who Digital Homicide is?” And Jim was all like “That’s amazing to hear.”

That’s a thing now? You all need to move to Canada. Even the crazy rightwing Conservative Party lady (Kelly Leiche) believes in gay rights.

Um, ignoring the shameless political outburst a sec ago…When it comes to weapon degradation, which can be pretty annoying, I found in Dying Light, especially the DLC The Following, it strikes an interesting balance. With the buggy you get given to slowly turn into what is starting to resemble a zombie apocalypse bat-mobile buggy, you get degradation on different parts of the vehicle, which I first thought would be total bullshit. But it gives a really good risk/reward feeling with how you choose to utilise the vehicle. How often you go over jumps and bumpy ground when it wears the… Read more »

I had to complete my employer’s annual security training a few days ago. There was a section on breaches of various companies. One of which was Epic Games and possibly I missed things but I don’t recall that being widely reported on a lot of gaming sites. Lots of hits on Cyber Security sites however.

The best was a bank in Bangladesh who were hacked for what would have been a significant amount of money if it weren’t for a typo in one of their data transfer protocols somewhere.

Had an SO once who’s parents always bought the sun newspaper each morning, and every time I visited and happened to pick it up out of sheer bordem waiting for whatever, every single article and line extracted from me noises like “ugh”, “what?”, “Why?”, “You dumb fucks”, “gargh!”, “people get paid for this trash??” and usually ending with a “fuck this waste of neuron activity” as I fling it back on the table in utter disgust and look for the nearest drink with a substantial alcohol content. People who complain about politics in anything they like seem to conveniently forget… Read more »

I hate you, Laura. My default reaction is to loathe people who I am envious of.

That is all, carry on.

So its my b-day today and I’m thinking of going out and buying myself a ps4 game. I’m flipflopping between the Bioshock complete edition or the first few Uncharted Games.
Thoughts? Pros/Cons?
