…Bjork has an umlaut. The o is like the ‘e’ in the word “her”, or the ‘i’ in the word “bird”.

Does Mario’s hat fuck?
Yes. Yes, it does.
And don’t ask Miyamoto. He’s capable of answering “ask your momma” and dab.

I think there’s a difference to make between something like Fashion Souls or anything with a custom character vs a game like Overwatch or League of Legends when it comes to “It’s just cosmetic”. While I do agree that it’s nice and fun to have customization options in any games, I think they’re more important for custom characters who’re bland characters from the start and it’s part of the game to make them how you want them to be unlike games like Overwatch where the characters are already amazingly well designed and full of personality which makes it easier to… Read more »

I don’t think it’s “blasting” to simply acknowledge that those games are rather silly. I think that’s their goal, and that’s fine, but don’t act like everyone has to love them and take them seriously when they are, in fact, just about an excuse to see some bouncing anime boobs while you play a mediocre dynasty warriors clone.

I’m not saying everyone has to love them but it just “annoys” me when they make fun of something without having even tried it. For example, I still remember Laura was flat out lying about the story to make it more stupid then it actually was. At least play the damn game and be somewhat informed about it and don’t base your judgement on their silly promo material alone. Imo they’re much better games then most recent Dynasty Warriors games(Hyrule and Dragon Quest aside).

and just to be clear, by “play” I don’t mean getting the platinum trophy or anything, just trying the game a bit before making fun of them if that’s what they want to.

Again, all they did was say the name of the game and then laugh. Like…chill out, you are clearly way too invested in whether people like some bouncing anime boobs as much as you.

That’s why I only said it as a PS. For now they only named it and laughed (which is perfectly fine) but everytime a new one comes out it’s like they make it their duty to make fun of the series. Don’t worry, I’m not the type of person that worries about people liking or not liking the same stuff as me (I wouldn’t be able to deal with the internet as someone who hates Final Fantasy X, Mass Effect, Elder Scroll, Uncharted and many more popular game/serie and thinks Skyward Sword is one of if not the best Zelda… Read more »

You say you’re someone who doesn’t care what other people think about the things you like, but… This entire exchange seems to indicate otherwise.

Jim, you keep mentioning places in Kent that are relevant to my life. I’m a Sidcup lad, myself.

I think I can see why you might want to GTFO…

Wait, that’s the one line from that song people know? Not “Sha lala lala la…”?

Even only a day later, the only thing I remember music-related from the podcast is Gavin yelling “Mr. Jones” at the very end with his machine what does sound miraculously.

So, yeah. I buy that what they remember is pretty common. I can’t even recall the songs they were talking about.

I guess if you’re not into Destiny or LA Noire, there’s not much to enjoy about this week’s podcast, hey? I think I’m weird in that I listen to the podcast specifically for the bollocks and the news but not so much the in-depth chat about specific titles. And no listener questions, which is a shame. Oh well, still, thank God for Jim.

About your point near the end about blasphemy in Malaysia, it could also be blasphemous because Jesus is a prophet in Islam. He isn’t considered the son of God but is still VERY respected.

Destiny 2 screws up somewhat in the endgame, because, after hitting level 265 and checking off the weekly milestone rewards, most of the activities become pretty useless. This is because vendor items AND legendary engrams will drop at or below your level, and your combined Power will not advance. The only thing left to do is to grind heroic public events, because those are the only activity that consistently drop exotics. Like the gang said, there are a TON of other great activities, but none of them are particularly useful, because the rewards will never advance you. Hopefully Bungie will… Read more »

Yeah good point. I’m only really doing public events right now to unlock a third subclass for my titan, the gear I’m getting is worse than anything I already have.

That’s not too different from Destiny 1, except in that the only thing worth doing were raids and nightfall strikes and you could only do those once a week and you probably cheesed the nightfall by hiding behind a rock or under a staircase to plink the boss to death.

Today is my birthday and I couldn’t ask for a better gift than what I got. Thanks for letting me know about this video, Gavin, it made my day.

I think Laura just summed up VR in the LA Noire bit. “I don’t know if I’ll bother setting up my VR to do the missions”. If people who have a VR set already can’t be bothered to get it out when there’s content, people who don’t have one definitely aren’t bothering. I am a bit down on LA Noire. The core selling point of the interrogations is just Phoenix Wright but worse because of the illogical responses from the Exleybot and, frankly, I’ve read the LA Quartet and I want my “beat confession out of suspect” button. Also the… Read more »

I think the Bethesda game announcement turned out that the new Doom is also coming to Switch this year, and next year is Wolfenstein.
