TFGT 129: Didn't I Ask Gendo Ikari to Add Isekai to the List of Banned Words?

TFGT 129: Didn't I Ask Gendo Ikari to Add Isekai to the List of Banned Words?

0:00 - Lake Superior State University's annual list of banned words, now a game show for your enjoyment! 16:25 - Carlos has been enjoying not watching anime, mostly because of isekai. Dave wants to ruin this. 22:14 - Adaptations in fiction. We mostly discuss from medium to medium (like book to TV) but also cover language to language (sub vs dub, don't worry it doesn't get ugly). Examples discussed include Fullmetal Alchemist, Harry Potter, The Promised Neverland, Cybersix, and Western comic book heroes with multiple canons like Spider-Man. 41:01 - Evangelion. Oh god, Evangelion. 45:02 - Humble Bundle is limiting what can be sent to charity. 49:59 - Halo Infinite matchmaking seggregation between gamepad and keyboard/mouse players. 52:59 - Chip shortages and cryptocurrency. 55:24 - Did the PS5 and Xbox Series X release too soon? Are cartridges the solution? 1:01:30 - Breath of the Wild 2 timeline confusion. 1:06:58 - Various topics back-to-back: Streets of Rage 4 DLC, Skullsgirls DLC, Power Rangers Battle for the Grid, It Takes Two, SaGa Frontier Remastered, Pac-Man 99, and Brave Prove. 1:22:51 - Microsoft Game Pass and the issue of game archival and preservation, which turns into a discussion of preserving all art (games, films, comics, et al) and things like big corporations gutting public domain laws. 1:28:37 - Signs of life at Konami? 1:29:54 - Dave asks if E3 is relevant anymore. Carlos makes his feelings on this question, and on E3, known. 1:32:41 - Is a Knights of the Old Republic remake imminent? 1:33:39 - Some people think BioWare and Blizzard only went downhill after their acquistion by EA/Activision, but Carlos says they've always been shitty. We also discuss MMO content rollout strategies, specifically, WoW vs. Guild Wars 2. And are MMOs really games? At least one fat guy argues against. 1:48:18 - More of the banned words game show! The Sword vs. Moon Rod art is by the talented RedCaliburn. Find her on Twitter, shop from her store, and visit her website.
