Podquisition Episode 7: It’s Not Semen

This week, your ol’ pal Jim manages to get superglue (and it IS glue) all over his hands. It’s very distressing and frightening for him.

Elsewhere, we talk about weird games that involve fighting terrorists as teenage girls, beating horses to death, and fapping in thirty seconds. Also, Ubisoft did something stupid again. Because Ubisoft.

Um, the Transformers discussion….. they transform. That’s where it goes. Any confusions about size changes and weapon bits can be solved with that fact. They are unpossibly technologically advanced beings. If we can accept that there are giant sentient robots that can change shape at will, why do we need to make excuses for what bits can change and what bits cant?

Your theory about the rubbish game devs being traumatized by Gaben during collage assumes they did a game development cause at collage which, given the quality of their games, I doubt!

Replying to my own comment (should have listened to the whole thing before I commented) I love Space Invader crisps.

My brother special-ordered some crisps for my Birthday, crisps I hadn’t managed to get ahold of for over 20 years – Smiths Grills. You’re probably wondering what happens when you bite into your beloved childhood crisps for the first time in decades. Are they everything your brain remembers? Does it truly live up to the nostalgia?

The answer, is yes. *Punches the air*

You seem to be quite a mixed bunch with very different backgrounds but somehow the podcast works very well. Those are some very odd games you mention regarding the horse beating and the fapping within 30 seconds, all very peculiar, there are some very strange developers out there with too much time on their hands but still diversity and choice is what keeps the world interesting. I do agree that Nintendo have had a cracking year but wait there’s more with StarFox WiiU and Zelda WiiU coming out this year (hopefully).

Except that we have an Assassin’s Creed set in the modern day. It’s called Far Cry 3

Here’s the thing about Nintendo: They don’t want people to have the things they make.

From rare games like Xenoblade and Fire Emblem: Awakening, to their recent shenanigans with Amiibo and Game Cube Adapters, Nintendo has clearly shown a disinterest in actually selling products.

To be fair, they’ve been burned more than once with NA releases that just went nowhere despite the supposed anticipation. I’d say they’re overly-cautious rather than outright insane at this point.

Also, Xenoblade is getting a *second* re-release for the New 3DS. The first re-release got fucked up because Gamestop did something completely obnoxious and utterly predictable.

Whoopdedoo, they’re rereleasing Xenoblade for a new-but-not-really-new system that’ll probably cost $200+ and have pretty much no other games for it. And it’s not like Ninendo was forced to release Xenoblade exclusively at GameStop.

BAH!

They didn’t release exclusively to GameStop. Gamestop bough a shit-ton of copies and then sold them for more because now they were “rare”.

I don’t want to sound too fussy Jim, but do you realise the ‘direct download’ for each episode’s page doesn’t link to the mp3. Since my laptop bust, I use the PS3 browser, so twitch and soundcloud are a problem at the moment. I’m sure other devices may have trouble too.
On the subject of those of us with no PC, if you could also export any twitch streams to youtube, that would be very much appreciated, yt is the only way I can see twitch archives.

Anything else that needs to align with your technical regulations, Mr. Fussy?

You can’t go to the Soundcloud page and download it to your music* folder from there? That works on my Vita.

* I assume PS3’s have some sort of music storage

AleBelly, AskingI for the direct download to be a direct download isn’t that fussy, I’m sure its just an oversight by Jim but the point is to link the mp3 directly so any esoteric/crappy old device can get it. I know I’m in the minority but I’m sure there are others having to ‘make do’ without a proper PC or smartphone. Greg, PS3 can download media quite well and soundcloud used to work but now just loads a blank page same as twitch (I’ve tried with javascript on and off) my psp can handle the rss, but as I’m broke,… Read more »

Also, I absolutely adore the Dead Space series. Resident Evil 2 turned me off of “survival horror” pretty early on, and Dead Space brought me back. When I first bough my copy, I played the first area for about an hour before putting it down- not because I didn’t like it, but because it scared the shit out of me. It took me over a year to pick it back up and beat it. I’d say that DS2 was less “scary”, but only because I knew what I was getting into. I submit, though, that it has a much stronger… Read more »

These are always a bright spot of my day. And you’ve finally sold me on BoI: Rebirth. Downloading it to my Vita now. The more I hear you enthuse about it, the more surprised I am that it “only” got an Honorary Mention in your Games of the Year show.
