Podquisition Episode 141: Drawing Geralt’s Bath Sausage

Builders get their knobs out, everybody knows this. It’s part of the construction gig.

Elsewhere, The Witcher 3 has a coloring book, GameStop hates its employees, and Warframe gets some discussion.

I know this is the internet and I shouldn’t be surprised. But why the fuck are people dicks to people who make shit they like?

Don’t get it. Be it YouTube or music or any art really.

The creator/creator is creating. They don’t serve you. They don’t make shit for you exclusively.

If you don’t like it then move on. Find a new YouTube personality/band/director to worship.

Idiots.

I don’t blame Joe for taking time off. Right now there aren’t any games worth talking about, and his reviews usually take a bit more time than anybody else’s.

Plus, the dudes not in the best health. So him taking two or so months off in order to regroup and gain some perspective. Is a very good thing, plus a lot of the older Youtubers are starting to slowly die out or just get burn out already.

Certainly sounded like the some input sensitivity setting somewhere was the problem with Discord.

Just move to Jim’s house, everyone, and record from the same room.

I actually really appreciate the talk you guys had about the whole creative process and getting burnt out and how you deal with that. I myself have plans to start a youtube channel, as well as plans to get into streaming for the Brazillian audience, so that stuff you guys said is great advice I’ll take to heart. So… Thanks, guys.

Really sad that some of Angry Joe’s so-called fans are acting like whiny and entitled crybabies just because Joe wants to take a break from game reviews and do other content. I’ve heard all sorts of bullshit about how Joe “lied” or “broke promises” and that’s not true at all, he outright said that his schedule was “not set in stone” and he said he would try it for six months, he did that and it didn’t work for him, that should’ve been the end of it, but no people had to act like spoiled brats and downvote Joe’s other… Read more »

Game Scoop! is definitely not serious.

Potential Fuckonami news. The next edition of PES will feature Neymar on the cover in the colours of the team he will be shortly leaving.

I’m ok with you guys not always talking about video games all the time, it is called Podquisition and not Videogamequistion after all. What I am not ok with is the lack of talk about pods. 141 episodes in and you have yet to have any meaningful discussion about pea pods, pod people, pod racing, or Podrick from Game of Thrones.

The song Jim referred to is probably the 1981 UK number 1 Japanese Boy by Scottish singer Aneka (Mary Sandeman). It features as one of the songs on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the Flash FM channel.

Bioware do have original Mass Effect lead writer Drew Karpyshyn back. He’s doing their notDestiny.

One of the interesting things about PUBG: while Ubisoft might add voice actors pretending to be players on voice chat sounding cool and tactical in it’s trailers and what it actually sounds like is fake, tryhard and pathetic… people actually do it for real in team games of PUBG and it’s natural. Streamers I watch might joke and chat around in the begging, but once there is 30 people left on the map, stuff gets tense and efficient communication becomes important.

I will miss your written reviews JIm, but the period of lamentation will end eventually. Change is important to writing.
I hope that this direction is successful!

Also, I hope that there is still some written content, from time to time, “Metabombed” is a fun series.

Visceral being shuttered might be a blessing in disguise. If that staff gets together again and thinks up another horror IP, I would imagine they could crowdfund it very easily.

Speaking of that fatigue I’ve felt that way about gears 4 when it came out. I played 3 multiplayer pretty religiously but 4 flat out unimpressed me. People got so much shit for stuff like the retro Lancer and the sawed off but so many of the new weapons are way more ridiculously strong not that you’d see it because gnasher is still king. I played one match before deciding I was over it. Ugh

I get why Gamestop and other stores are going to be open on Thanksgiving even if I don’t agree with it-the stores that closed on Thanksgiving got their asses kicked by those that stayed open, so from a business standpoint I get why stores would want to take advantage of people who want to shop on that day. If you really want to stop stores from being open on Thanksgiving, you have to train U.S. society as a whole to stop shopping on that day, which is much easier said then done. Glad you’re enjoying doing video reviews, I really… Read more »

I reckon and quite accurately so even if I say so myself that the problem is hardware based, and Jim would probably find discord works better if he removed some extraneous gear, like how on a lot of jimpressions his joypads often interfere and cause cameras to spin around and stuff.

If Jim were to give Ian his VR, maybe Discord would respect his generosity and kindness and sync him better with Gav & Laura.

I picked up ME: Andromeda recently in a sale, and I’m genuinely enjoying it, warts and all. It feels like two different games mashed together some times, one genuinely breathtaking and the other a rough, buggy Mass Effect “homage”, and maybe it’s AAA industry cynicism but my first thought was lack of resources or interference from higher ups. Maybe there wasn’t *enough* oversight, but either way Bioware Montreal clearly had some genuine talent and it’s sad to see them absorbed and forgotten about. I think if they got a crack at a sequel it would be really something special.

The way Laura describes it, Takoma sounds like the videogame equivalent of interactive theater (But with a rewind function rather than fully choosing which interactions of the characters to follow)

I have watched several streams of PUBG and while in the end game it is a Battle Royal, the beginning and middle of the game is more of a survival game without the fatigue and hunger meters. You are trying to find weapons, ammo, armor, and first aid supplies without being killed instantly. You are checking the map and oops I’m a mile away from the safe zone; better find a vehicle.

If you think you’ve encountered someone posh before, bear in mind that Laura is so posh that she can’t do *English* accents. TFW Nolan North does better Cockney voices than you.

Warframe’s loot grind isn’t all that bad. The only annoying bits is Gold Mods/Forma and the Endo treadmill, but you get SO MUCH of the rest that you’ll be more hamstrung by the star chart keeping you away from useful mats than you will the loot itself. I’ve chosen to believe Prime Vault and Relics don’t exist. I sleep better at night that way. For the uninformed: Warframe does not drop gear during missions unlike all the other looter shooters, enemies drop crafting materials instead. Crafting materials are used to create new characters and weapons from blueprints, which are on… Read more »

Let’s not forget that Visceral did Dante’s Inferno (for better of worse) as well. I liked more than God of War.
