Podquisition Episode 122: What The Cuck Is This Anal Bum Party?

This episode’s suffering will be legendary, even in Hell.

There are no rails in sight as we hurdle from sincere divulgences to Metacritic mayhem, angry people, and extramarital shenanigans.

Somehow, we also get a lot of game chat, from more Zelda thoughts to a hot take on Nier: Automata and more!

Jim got me to play and enjoy Dynasty Warriors. I’m not most of the world though. But I doubt I am alone in being influenced him on that so… a (very) partial success on that goal? Better than nothing? Not as good as something? 7 out of 10, needed to be several billion more people?

As a person who currently has some issues including annoying and quite inhibiting anxiety, I very much envy the lax US regulations for medically prescribed drugs when they sound so awesome and useful when plied to Jim. Give me your drugs, damnit! Must I sing Muse’s Bliss at top volume for your utmost displeasure?? Word on the grapevine is alcohol is not a healthy coping strategy. Ooh, grape nectar…

Wednesday? Wh…what you on about, Laura? I thought this was live…why is it Wednesday, Laura?? It’s Thursday…It’s always Thursday, Laura…Why would you say Wednesday? You… you’ve done this a thousand times before…It’s Thursday!
*Sobs quietly in foetal position*

Not.

Wednesday.

In fairness with Laura’s almost time travel week with episode 12 of her BOTW LP I can see why there might be some confusion.

I am not disputing that “they” do. I think Laura doesn’t. At least not here. I know, and by hearing Jim literally talking about wanting to engage with his audience via a forum, can without a doubt see that they do frequent their comments and fan inquiries. Conrad does do so extensively on the Spin-Off doctors and I am very much thankful that they in general do engage with their audience when the reality is that they could very well dedicate nearly a third of their whole day to just answering comments/mails/forums/etc. and still not get close to covering it… Read more »

If you go back through the older Podquisitions, both Laura and Gavin have both commented here. Admittedly, they might have been scared away by a negative nancy who did nothing but argue with them (without them even needing to post a comment), but they have done it before. Laura as recently as the last episode of her temporary absence during the move/personal issues.

I’d look up episode numbers, but I have a lot to do today and really shouldn’t be here at all.

Mass Effect 3’s ending was dreadful and completely out of tone with the rest of the game.

Mass Effect 3 went to shit well before the ending, so the ending was pretty in keeping with how garbage the Quarian/Geth chapter was.

Ending was shit, though.

Yea, the bad ending just made the rest of the game look better than it actually was.

I think it was a genuinely good game, and I was fortunate to play the directors cut so my experience was not as badly tainted as others were.

Laura tries to steer Jim to it at around 20 minutes, they get heavily sidetracked, and then Jim just goes deep into it somewhere between 40 minutes to 1 hour in, and he goes quite a long time.

That being said, I am now 95% sure that’s diamond with a new name. The TB reference puts it over the top.

With last week’s Yahtzee drop and their habit of mass replying, and post structuring, it has to be an attempted rebrand.

No, just the only one to bring him up as vindication for your opinions.

Very rarely do we see posts from you that don’t include “I agree with ‘YouTuber X’ ” in some form.

It’s part of your unique posting style that gives ya away, Diamond mate.

Not that there’s anything wrong with a rebrand (hell, I recently changed my own avatar), and I’m enjoying yours.

So keep on doing you.

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

OK then.

I just wish that Chris guy would stop attacking me for no reason, it’s funny how he tries to paint himself as a victim, yet his very first post responding to me was an insult out of nowhere.

Chris Schwartz-Brown
Guest
Chris Schwartz-Brown

Only if you pretend you weren’t Diamond.

But then, I also notice you’re refusing to actually /say/ that you aren’t him. You’re never actually answering either way, so no one can call you a liar when you slip up and reference some old discussion or some old comment thread that predates this new identity I’d imagine.

darksteel6
Guest

I won’t insult you anymore if you won’t insult me anymore, deal?

It is diamond. The Alpha Protocol avatar is a clue as is their enjoyment of the Technomancer and also is talking about Ghost Recon.

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

You’re saying it’s not humanely possible for anyone else to actually enjoy those games? In spite of how popular one of them is? OK then.

Anton
Guest
Anton

Would you perhaps consider that…. foolish?

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

Foolish to enjoy those games? I’m really not sure what you’re saying.

Polishfury5000
Guest
Polishfury5000

You’re using the exact same syntax. If you aren’t him, then you’re a very good troll and I tip my cap to you, because well played on the bait.

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

OK, whatever you say.

drownedsummer
Guest
drownedsummer

It’s certainly possible but also very curious that the person who also enjoyed those games appears to have stopped posting and someone with the exact same preference in games starts posting immediately.

How do you feel about Pixels by the way?

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

It’s more or less what I expected it to be-a live action version of that one Futurama episode with a similar premise, whether that’s a good or a bad thing depends on your taste in humor since comedy is subjective after all. It’s an alright film for me, not great but not terrible either, but I understand why people like Jim and Moviebob are not fond of it to put it lightly.

Chris Schwartz-Brown
Guest
Chris Schwartz-Brown

It’s obviously diamond. That he’s denying it now is more sad than anything. He’s not even trying hard to hide it with his constant harping on about federation force or his constant need to seek validation from popular YouTubers to justify his opinions.

M.
Guest
M.

And it’s not just a similar avatar, it’s the *exact same one*. Scrolling down, I thought Disqus had glitched out and unblocked him for a moment before I saw that he’s just sockpuppetting.

Diamond is not smart.

darksteel6
Guest

Why? People have mentioned him on here before. It’s not like he’s some obscure content creator.

The biggest clue to me is that Diamond was conspicuously absent in the Zelda review comments, but this guy lept into the fray like a berserker just like I assumed Diamond would do.

If it is him though, when he’s not talking to Zelda fanboys it’s an improvement.

darksteel6
Guest
darksteel6

That was due to me being very sick and bored that day, I was truly out of fucks to give and was so damn tired of fanboys whining over Jim’s reviews that I gave no quarter to any of those fools. Can’t say I regret it, but i’ll try not to do that again.

darksteel6

That guy’s been hostile to me from the very start, i’ve given up on him actually acting like a decent human being.

Chris Schwartz-Brown

Wrong, I’ve only been hostile to you since you called me homophobic slurs because we disagreed on a game. I’ve continued because you’re an obvious troll. You can’t just rewrite history because you changed screen names.

I think Jonathan Holmes summed it up nicely back when he, Jim, and Conrad Zimmerman were doing the Dismal Jesters podcast: “I’ve seen the culture around Nintendo fans change a lot in the past few years where they’ve been made fun of so much for so long now it’s become a much more bitter, angry, sometimes more entitled culture.”

darksteel6

I don’t remember Nintendo fans ever really being made fun of that much, though I do remember Nintendo fans making fun of Sega fans when the Saturn came out.
