Just wanted to thank you guys for speaking about TB. I found out about all three of you via the Co-Optional Podcast, along with a bunch of other interesting people I never would have heard about otherwise. Personally I thought he was great- I never understood why people considered him divisive, and I’m not going to look it up now because what would be the fucking point. The man deserved his due, and I think your words were very appropriate. Again, just wanted to say I appreciate how frank you were on the subject, it was very touching. Cheers.

Man, TB was probably the first person closest to a friend that is gone from my life so far. It feels really wierd and I didn’t expect it would hit hard for someone I didn’t know personally at all. But I’ve listened to a lot of his content throught the years and he affected me in a lot of ways. Even though I made my peace with the fact that it’s going to happen, as Jim said, you’re never fully ready. Cancer trully sucks. As for the talk about death and stuff. The way I see it, Nothingness is a… Read more »

Long time listener, first time poster.

I flippin’ love you three. Keep doing your mental health check-in at the end of the pod, as and when you please. Speaking as someone who’s *ahem* had a few issues, I appreciate it. Not many people will speak as bravely, openly and honestly as you all do, so it’s refreshing to hear.

So I’d like to wish you all – Gavin, Laura, Jim, and everyone on this forum – good mental health. Look after yourselves!

I respected Total biscuit, I may not have agreed with everything he did or said but I understood it. Its really nice to hear you talk about his loss, I was upset hearing about his loss. As a Christian I disagree with gavin and Laura I find death as difficult as they do as it means I have lost the earthly experiences I cherish with hat person hearing them laugh, cry, be angry, see them a a bounce ideas off. Sometimes a listening ear can be a good thing. I think we should all cherish those around us for as… Read more »

I’ve never understood why TotalBiscuit is considered a controversial figure in the first place.

Is it just guilt by association because he has some horrible fans (who he has called on on several occassions) or that he was in favour of some of the things that gamergate people said (but absolutely none of the horrible harassing misogynistic shit that was the real problem with a lof of that movement)?

It’s really sad that a talented young guy’s death hasn’t served as a wake up call to how silly and unimportant all these internet slanging matches are.

Agreed with it really sucking as an atheist, the fear of the eternal nothing and even the heat death of the universe when I tend to think about it and automatically try to imagine creates an overwhelming dread and panic. Envy of the religious is high. But also it creates a deep fear of the self if and when I hit a an emotional overload and fall into a suicidal state of mind where it becomes for some reason the only answer to everything and the only thought repeating in the head. For that reason have purposefully hidden myself from… Read more »

But if the robot restrictions on crossing the road and all the other games stuff in Detroit were consistent, shouldn’t the newfound freedom they experience in the story then remove those restrictions? Actually, would Cage being somewhere on the autistic spectrum explain his writing of people and emotions? Never thought of it that way before, but it seems like a legitimate possibility upon inspection. Was reading something not much of a whiles back on how anime and, I’d imagine other media in the same vein too, has an extra appeal to those with troubles in recognising the subtler social cues… Read more »

The monetization model for Pokemon Quest is traditional DLC, at least on Switch. You buy direct upgrades to your base. What do they do? I have no idea, I downloaded it and played Hyrule Warriors instead. DLC is (US) $4.99, $9.99, and $17.99 or the whole kaboodle for $29.99. Maybe other DLC as well, as I only saw the Bundle. Based on the descriptions: 1 cookpot for each DLC. Cookpots let you recruit Pokemon. 1 Pokeball upgrade for each DLC (quality is directly tied to what you paid). This generates a currency that can be spent on “content”. I have… Read more »
