Podquisition Episode 147: Does Mario’s Hat Fuck?

Björk visits the studio, remasters are happening, and there’s loads of obvious Destiny 2 talk.

Oh, and we also have to confront horrible truths about sentient hat.

God, I really don’t wanna be this guy… I don’t want to type this, but my fingers are moving on their own…
…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 »

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…”?

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 »

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.

And don’t let poets lie to you.

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.
