Podquisition Episode 9: Laura Drinks Bob Marley’s USB Cable

Soundcloud is being absolutely ridiculous today, so grab this while it’s actually up… IF it’s up. At some point I may be able to add the show’s thumbnail without Soundcloud scrubbing the entire audio file. That would be nice. I hate doing anything related to audio. All the time. Urrrrgh.

Anyway, it’s a good show this week!

On this week’s splendid episode, we chat about Resident Evil: The Official Remaster Of The Official Remake, and Saints Row: Gat Out Of Jail Free Card. We also discuss Hotline Miami 2 and Hatred a little bit… again. And Laura drinks Bob Marley’s USB Cords.

You can listen/download directly here and get the RSS feed here.

Jim, regarding the recent Resident Evils, do you have any opinions on Resi Revelations?

While I know you hate anything to do with audio, might I make a suggestion? Please, pleaaaase equalize the intro with the rest of the audio. It’s so much louder than everything else and I always forget to turn the sound down first.

It’s true that Nintendo does a terrible job with product supply. When it comes to things like Amiibo and the GCN controller adapter, there is no excuse for any kind of long-term shortage. There just isn’t, and Nintendo really needs to get their shit together and stop being (I assume) so careful to the point of paranoid. But! I also find it very amusing when people (like Jim, for instance) complain that they can’t get their hands on something that is announced as “Limited Edition”. It’s as if the term has been so horribly abused by so many companies (not… Read more »

Except normally when a company makes a truly limited edition of something, they don’t allow people to buy 50 of them.

BAH!
Guest
BAH!
Meaning that’s too few, or too many? Considering the 3DS has sold close to 45M, 50 is definitely a limited number (though I suspect it was actually more- probably at least a few hundred) to release. And, again, you can’t complain that a “limited edition” thing is limited and rare. If half the market was able to get one, it would lose collector value. And since Nintendo is basically a toy company, I imagine they understand and appreciate the concept of special editions. Like I said before, it’s pretty obvious that other companies have so badly distorted the meaning of… Read more »

I think he meant that normally when a company releases limited edition products they limit how many an individual can buy. Nintendo doesn’t really seem to enforce that limitation.

BAH!
Guest

Ah, yes, that is probably true. But since Nintendo doesn’t sell those things directly (like they should, maybe?), that would be more of an issue with the partnering retailer like GameStop.

But I agree that there absolutely needs to be more control in that regard.

I would just like to mention that the Hotline Miami 2 guys did add the option to not see the content that suggests sexual violence. Regardless the whole situation is a great example of feedback between creator and audience. They were made aware that some people were uncomfortable with the scene in question, they took this into account, and decided to stick to their original vision. They accepted the consequences of this (as they must have been aware of Australia’s blanket refusal of games that contain any form of sexual violence). Fair play to them.

So all this time I thought Gavin was this really attractive model that I found in an image search when I searched his name. Ha ha ha.

He’s still a good looking man, though, and Jesus that voice is velvety-smooth.

Just on Laura’s comments about Refused Classification in Australia – that’s actually wrong. The only thing that’s not ‘banned’ about the RC classification is that you are allowed to possess RC content (with the exception of in the state of Western Australia ) – but the sale, distribution or importation of it isn’t allowed, retailers don’t have the option to sell it – and can be fined for doing so. In theory at least it would also be illegal for an online store to sell it – but that’s unenforcable overseas, and given that possession is allowed in most states,… Read more »

I hate to keep fillating Rocksteady, but in the argument for tighter, more “iconic” level design, Arkham Asylum and City are shining examples. Even Arkham City’s open world was tighter than most, with every area being instantly recognizable through various architectural choices. On top of that, both Arkham environments were packed to the brim with tiny details relating to the Bat-verse as a whole, making the experience feel that much richer.

Challenge accepted! One quick Google later …sonicfanon.wikia is apparently a thing that exists. As is this: “As the son of the fastest thing alive, Greg the Hedgehog has quite a few unique abilities to his lineage. He can run at incredible sppeds, uop to Mach 2. He can also use the Spin Dash, Homing Attack, Lightspeed Dash and Boost manuvers to his advantage. He can also use the Sword Of Light, an ancient blade that can destroy any form of Dark Magic.

Apparently “Tyler the Hedgehog” is dark and demonic, but he’s fighting for an ideal future. And I can shoot fireballs.

Speaking of USB, in the 3.0 or 3.1 category they are trying to make a new plug type to replace the USB standards they are using now.

USB 3 has been slightly a miss for me I have gone through 3-4 mobos/cards/chipsets and all the USB 3 hard drives I use are a bit slow, sure its much better than USB 2…

I’m gonna guess that the Rosalina pictures Jim found were supposed to be Vore, which just about made my week hearing his reaction.

So glad as well that Laura’s comment from last EP about a messed up remake wasn’t the reREmake. If Laura wants a new energy drink to review for the podcast, might I suggest (in keeping with the theme of this week) looking for a can of the Resident Evil T-Virus Antidote energy drink. You can order it online apparently (found some on amazon).

Anyway, good job everybody.

RE The bad portrayal of the female character in Gat Out of Hell: Has anyone on the podcast played Shadow of Mordor with the Lithariel skin applied? It’s downright cringe-worthy at times. Your character still speaks with Talion’s voice and appears as Talion in all cut-scenes. I’m happy for the female option, but… ugh, it just feels like they didn’t try very hard.

Well they didn’t try at all, it’s no different than the other Skins. It’s worse than not having a female character.
Implying it’s not worth the time and effort.
