Podquisition Episode 53: LINKLE!

CONTENT WARNING: This show contains woolly liberal politics. If you are offended by progressive politics, please be advised!

On this show, we get a bit too dark and political for a bit, before discussing the most crucial matter of the day -LINKLE! She’s like Link, but better, because she’s called Linkle.

Also, there’s more obligatory Fallout 4 chat, we talk about the frustrating nature of Star Wars Battlefront, and loads more bollocks besides!

lol I almost didn’t watch this episode because of the warning attached to it. I prefer the episodes where you guys don’t do so much of the social justice talk.

This might surprise you but I’ve actually seen a lot of tv commercials for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Mostly on places like adult swim but I’ve seen it plenty of times on major networks like ESPN during big football games too. I agree that going exclusive was a dumb idea but for what it’s worth Microsoft does seem to be marketing it hard, at least on US television.

I think the issue with Steam OS being slower to run games than Windows is due to games being ported poorly to Linux. Which takes some of the blame away from Valve but really doesn’t help…

Thoughts on this episode. Most GGers I know and have seen love Linkle and are annoyed with the feminists crapping on her for not being good enough or a Ms.Male Character trope and other mindless complaints. I never said anything bad about Jim being Polyamorous so I will still occasionally disagree on sexy women in games. Also loved Jim’s pick for the politician fighting game that final attack is insane.

I think some of the snark brought up around your Fallout Video feedback was a bit too universally dismissive. I disliked that Jimquisition video and have quite a difference of opinion to the point that was made, but I would not say you were a degenerate. I’m a fan and like giving support to your patreon account, and would like to think that I can disagree but also understand your points. The discussion at the start of this podquisition never really referenced or acknowledged any criticisms on that video that may have been valid, or understandable. I guess what I’m… Read more »

That’s unfair to valve though, the performance is worse because both AMD and Nvidia don’t care about their linux drivers.

The word you were looking for is “Polyamorøs”. I think.

The Norwegian language doesn’t really have umlauts, by the way.

Hey Jim, how do you I join your kinky BDSM sex club? I checked the Mississippi personals on Craigslist, and it’s all men wanting to have sex with other men to get closer to their Dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I don’t think that’s you.

I’m thinking that Cloud being in Smash may have been a combination of the fan poll Nintendo did and that he’s technically cameo’d in several GB games.

I like Linkle, more original than something like Lin.
Seems a lot of UK people dislike the name.

BAH!

You know who Linkle reminds me of? The Ranger from Dragon’s Crown, except without the ridiculously large thighs.

I’m quite happy Linkle is a thing. I want to see her playable in the next LOZ (probably won’t happen). To be honest, I never cared about Link’s gender (it never really mattered, did it?). Female Link kind of makes sense to me considering he never really had a written personality. Makes you wonder how many more characters could get that change.
