e074: Let's Make Our Own Time Zone!

e074: Let's Make Our Own Time Zone!



Davaniel Day Lewis and Carls Xavier talk a bunch of unscripted stuff!

Notable timestamps:

0:05:44 - A bunch of boring-ass World of WarCraft and Diablo talk.

0:20:38 - New Amiibo: Shovel Knight! ... Pardon?

0:43:33 - Jam and Rainbow Mika return to their respective fighting game series. So we obviously opine on sexualized women in fighters, then transition into talk of Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator.

0:57:47 - One cool thing, an idea blatantly lifted from the Scriptnotes podcast (http://johnaugust.com/podcast). We each talk about something cool/positive. Dave brings up WoW Tokens, how they let you buy game time with in-game currency. Carlos brings up Andrea Ritsu (@andrearitsu on Twitter) for cool Let's Plays.

"The Stanchurian Candidate" means more punching things with wings, an ominous trailer for next time, and us speculating on what's to come, including one reviewer's prediction that one Bill Cipher may not be as malevolent as one Ford Pines would have us believe...

MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT! Our retrospective and dub review of Yuki Yuna Is A Hero aka Yuuki Yuuna Wa Yuusha De Aru aka YuYuYu continues! It's time for episode 3 where we meet the token tsundere, and this trope is much more bearable here than in other anime.

e073: Thunderous Rising? Only Windows 10 Can Tow The Line Between Love and Hate!

e073: Thunderous Rising? Only Windows 10 Can Tow The Line Between Love and Hate!



(Audio issues in this episode, for a couple of reasons; we salvaged what we could. Our apologies.)

0:00:00 - Preamble & Opening Banter
- PlayStation TV isn't dead, and in fact its compatibility list is growing for some reason.
- Carlos exposits on how his ass has been itching a lot lately.

0:06:03 - Timed Jumps & Fist Bumps & Rockin' Tech (Games & Tech)
- New WoW expansion announcement out of nowhere, and since we recorded this before learning it was WoW: Legion, we make some hilarious, somewhat accurate/somewhat not guesses.
- (0:14:40) Double jumping and why it's awesome. Again, we recorded this before learning Demon Hunter double jumping in WoW would be a thing.
- (0:28:45) Turn-based games aren't dead yet. Were they ever really in danger?
- (0:36:32) Fallout 4 will release without its mod kit.
- (0:40:14) Windows 10 is an awesome nightmare of benign malevolence?
- (0:46:38) Rising Thunder, Seth Killian's new fighting game! Carlos has very preliminary impressions. More info: https://twitter.com/risingthunder / http://risingthunder.com.

1:03:07 - We Watch Dem Movin' Pictures (TV & Film)
- Reality TV and pandering to the lowest common denominator. Is reality TV always bad?
- Killing good shows with promise after one season, and how capitalism works apparently.
- Adam Sandler. Hoo boy, Adam Sandler...
- RIP Rowdy Roddy Piper. :'(

1:30:31 - Mailbag & Corrections
- Voicemails from Meowth (http://twitter.com/meowth900).
- Carlos is unfortunate enough to need a primer on SAO 2 to answer one of the voicemails.
- Talk on terrible fanbases and which one is the worst.
- Meowth talks about an upcoming live D&D game she'll be involved in! Check it out on Sunday August 9, at 1 PM Pacific (4 PM Eastern), on http://twitch.tv/exfauxsure, with shoutouts to the Burning Barrel Podcast.

"Dungeons, Dungeons, And More Dungeons" reveals so much about Ford, Dipper, and the plot in general. Dave was delighted. Carlos... not as much...

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
