e072: Predestination? The Only "Gods and Monsters" are People!

e072: Predestination? The Only "Gods and Monsters" are People!



Fun activity: see if you can guess the topics based on that title.

0:00:00 - Preamble & Opening Banter

0:01:28 - Timed Jumps & Fist Bumps (Games)
- RIP Satoru Iwata. Remembering his contributions to Nintendo and his corporate philosophy. How many executives choose to cut their own pay over laying off subordinates?

0:06:41 - The TV & Movies Section That Keeps TV & Movies Out of the Games Section
- Justice League: God and Monsters. Our thoughts on both the shorts and the feature itself. Could it get a sequel, and should it? If so, what new interpretations of DC characters would you want to see?
- (0:28:44) Terminator Genisys impressions. problems, and predestination paradox talk.
- (0:42:55) Is Steven Universe a great show or the greatest?

0:45:18 - I Hope Dave-Sempai Notices Me! (Anime)
- I'm the Main Character of a Harem Manga, but I'm Gay so Every Day is Hell for Me (by Ryosuke Kataoka): http://bit.ly/1TOr6oN (slightly NSFW). Discuss the brilliance.
- Thought experiment: we give anime the Justice League: Gods and Monsters treatment. Its villains as heroes, edgier heroes that are still heroic, etc.
- Random talk of scheduled knife fights with IWBTG creator Kayin over anime opinions, Gundam Wing sequels Dave didn't know about, and how Elfen Lied is the fucking worst thing ever.

1:05:58 - Mailbag & Corrections
- Voicemails from Meowth (http://twitter.com/meowth900) and Rowan (http://twitter.com/link6616).
- More on Satoru Iwata and Nintendo.
- We're asked to list the good things about Steven Universe. Done, with pleasure.
- What media has changed our perception of storytelling?

1:33:11 - Parting Thoughts

e071: We Talk Stuff of Things and the Dudes That Do That

e071: We Talk Stuff of Things and the Dudes That Do That



Dave and Carlos have an impromptu discussion about controversies in both video games and the real world. Also, Dave gets annoyed. Very annoyed.

Notable timestamps:

0:02:43 = Marriage equality in the US. Go US! Also Greek austerity, the potentially (perpetually?) crumbling EU, and "southern pride."

0:13:36 - Nintendo and their fans' disgusting support of conversion therapy and homophobia/biphobia in Fire Emblem Fates. Also talk of transgender characters in Guild Wars 2 and how Blizzard is bigoted.

0:26:19 - Is the "Nintendo PlayStation" prototype is a hoax?

0:29:47 - Lazy PC ports are lazy. Yes this is an Arkham Knight rant. Also lazy porting in general, from any gaming platform to any other.

0:41:07 - Shoutouts to Kayin's latest game, Brave Earth: Prologue, coming to Steam Greenlight soon! His site: http://kayin.moe/. Yes that's the actual URL. Also shoutouts to WayForward's latest Shantae demo!

0:43:34 - Disney's Inside Out is awesome! We talk about how awesome it is.

0:54:13 - Voicemails! Meowth (@meowth900 on Twitter) talks more E3, show recommendations/slamming, Steven Universe developments, and voice actors who have sadly passed away. Then friends of the show Kiki and Po send in TRIPLE TRIAD!

[Review] Gravity Falls season 2 eps. 1-11

The first video is the episode hosted on YouTube; if it's down due to some bogus copyright claim, hit the jump (i.e., click Read more below) and watch the second video instead.


We've seen up to season 2 episode 11 of Gravity Falls and had Anime Raves recorded. We wanted to release them all before the new episode later this month, and we realized we didn't have too much content in them. So this is the second of two "omnibus" Anime Raves for Gravity Falls (the first was released earlier today); this one covers season 2 up until episode 11. And with this, we're caught up!

Then we're caught up.
