What’s with people calling Raikou a dog? It’s clearly a big electric tiger.

If it’s any consolation, Gav, David Cage writes domestic abuse like an idiot child. The hardest part is taking the script seriously. To be honest, the thing I find most offensive is how amazing Cage thinks he is at writing and how pretentious he acts about it. I am 95% his only real conscious experience with the subject matter is through shit 80s movies. Why does he get given so much money??

This is going to get me flamed…And I’m afraid to post it…because I genuinely care about what you three think… Look I love this show and enjoy your content Jim, Gavin and Laura. It’s fun and insightful. I know there are people around here who accuse me of being some individualist Tory asshole…This is not being written because of politics. It’s written because I genuinely support the content. But come on. Please google The Red Terror, Bolshevik Atrocities, The Great Purge, Stalin’s Total Number of Killings both prior to and including World War II (over 20 million when everything was… Read more »

So…Is it fair to say that Super Mario Odyssey is the Banjo Kazooie successor that Yooka Laylee wasn’t?

Wow, it is as if many sock puppets suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

At 1:01:30 they go into the subject of the missing Swastikas in the multiplayer of Call of Duty. I’ll not let this rest. I went into detail about this in the comments of Podquisition 144 so I’m not going to repeat the whole thing but the important parts still stand. Activision (and anybody else doing a WW2 Game or anything with Swastikas in it) should finally grow a spine. They should for once push back their release in germany and go to court with it and finally fight for the rights movies and books have enjoyed for ages. If they… Read more »

I’m glad I’m not the only one having a hard time in the new Wolfenstein. I’m only on the difficulty above normal and I’m still struggling. And there’s a game mode where you go through the game with just one life on ultra hard. To date no one has unlocked the trophy on psn yet. Other than that the game seems to have improved on ever aspect of the first especially in terms of story. It’s just really hard.

More bad news on the Wolfenstein 2 front: Looks like it’s a technical shitshow for a lot of PC users, review after review on Steam right now basically sums up as it’s fucked. The last patch apparently made it even worse to the point people simply can’t play/it’s outright blue-screening their computers. Unsurprisingly there’s also lots of hate for the game being so short (especially if discounting cutscenes and only going by gameplay) too. I can’t say I’m enthralled with the idea of spending 40 quid for about 6~ hours of game either though, even though I was really looking… Read more »

I for one am deeply disappointed that pumpkin talk ended without any discussion of how tasty they also are. Even the seeds are good if you roast them and put a little salt on them.
