Podquisition Episode 66: The Xbox One Is A Bit Toss

On this week’s episode, we obviously have to spend some time making fun of the terrible Street Fighter V launch. We also chat about Quantum Break‘s PC release, and Hideo Kojima’s latest chicanery.

There are a few home truths to be said about the Xbox One, too. Let’s put this on the table…

Fuck Capcom for not putting SFV on Xbox One.

I am an Xbox One owner (yes I have a gaming rig too), but I like the console still and I have no regrets going with it over the PS4. I didn’t buy it for the soul purpose of the exclusives (That’s why I bought a Wii U), I bought it because I like the controller, I like the online platform, I like the OS, I like its non-gaming features, heck I even like a lot about the Kinect. It’s not as powerful as the PS4, we knew that going in. But if all I cared about was raw power… Read more »

Ketchup is mostly just sugar which is why people get seemingly addicted to it. They’re not addicted to Ketchup, they’re just addicted to sugar without realizing how much they’re actually getting in their sauces.

Personally, I think that slathering cheap sauce all over anything is gross and hides the flavor of your food. Moderation in all things, just a little blob on the side to dip into every now and then. It’s all you need.

My brother has this weird mental thing with Tomatoes. Hates them. And I mean violently gets sick and starts to drive heave if he eats them.

But if you hide them in something, like…put some tomato juice in a beef stew, he’ll eat it just fine. Then if you mention there was tomatoes in it, he just gets sick and could even vomit.
Its only if he KNOWS there are tomatoes in it he gets sick. If he doesn’t know, he’s perfectly fine so its not his body reacting. It has to be his mind.

Xbox One has been a stream of disappointments. Try any cross-platform game on there and you will know that the Xbox One is always the worst.

I’d like to think you people know whats happening To H1Z1 being split into two $20 games with separate micro transactions. If you don’t, take a look here it’s kinda shit. http://store.steampowered.com/app/433850/

I’d go with ‘Mute Valley’, personally. Maybe ‘Hushed Dale’.Get away from hills and mountains, and go for places more commonly foggy.

So sad that the E3 PC thing wasn’t good. Because day[9] is a cool guy and I would have liked for his sake that it would have been good.

OK. Currently just under half way through listening to this and they were talking about the likelihood of a Silent Hill-ish Kickstarter and I just mumbled “Quiet Mountain.” The look of shock on my face must have been hilarious to behold when, not ten seconds later, Gavin said the same thing.
Spooky.

Hey Laura, why is Jim so echoey? He sounds like he’s speaking through a dixie cup with a small hole in it.

Jim! Your audio setup is lackluster!

There was a man named Molyneux. That never quite knew what to do. He’d promise the world to the good boys and girls. But he mostly just handed them poo.

In the topic of early triple A access the industry needs to stop asking for 60 dollars as they make glorfied free to play games. Street fighter 5 actually hasa similar bussiness model of the free to play tekken game minus wait times except you drop 60 bucks for street fighter 5. It’s a game of what you can get away with.

On the topic of reviews focusing on the art or on the consumer I think as people who get games for free it becomes more important to consider consumer perspective.

At first it may not effect you but the longer you are in the world the less cash can mean to you if you don’t think of it. Like Undertale is amazing but if it launched at 60 dollars maybe it wouldn’t have been so amazing.

It’s entirely possible to load test a server – perhaps they could do that before launching a game for fucking once?

I like the idea of room temperature ketchup, but that’s living to much on the edge for me. Ketchup sandwich yes.

But if you don’t put the ketchup in the fridge it will spoil.

Quantum Break is using DirectX 12 which only Windows 10 supports. It’s basically the foundation of the game and the community will not be able to mod it to work on other operating systems, it simply won’t work.

“I would rather have a game that leaves me wanting more” – Laura (paraphrased)

Well, then, that explains why she likes ME3 so much! :P. That game left us wanting an ending.
