I started off calling this episode 67, it is 68. I am sorry. I just had just left work and looked it up during my lunch break. I am sorry.
If I told you that this pod went off the tracks moments after it started I would be lying to you. I think the problem is that when we don’t record for lengths of time we just have crazy ideas of things that we should tell the world. Everything from the worst porn experiences that we could think about to… well pretty much anything that wasn’t edgy mascot games, which was the topic. I think we can all agree that I hate mascot games and Stark. I have since watched the third EVA movie, 3.33, and I still stand by saying that I would rather have been home then hanging out with him recording–even though it was kind of a confusing train wreck of a movie.
So Stark’s birthday is coming up on the 17th. We are going to be doing a live event at his apartment where we drink way too much and play video games. It came up that if anyone wanted to donate they could. I will be putting in a donation link at the bottom if you want to buy him booze. We will drink it on the stream, with a webcam on us. You are allowed to tell us what to buy if you donate, or pretty much if you leave a comment. Please keep in mind that we will try to buy it, but if we can’t find it please tell us what shelf too buy off instead (basement bottom shelf, for example, or Top Tier Awesome).
I went into these games expecting, at best, to learn something about debilitating illnesses/flossing; I came out with a new hero. His name is Rex Ronan and he can cure ANYTHING with his mixture of not caring, combat rolls, and magic lasers. In his free time he punches holes in reality to other worlds, just so teach them how to party on a level that we feels is acceptable. I heard that he is not only best friends with Slash, but he is the reason that Guns and Roses broke up; Axel Rose isn’t nearly as cool. They had to make the game that he was in unplayable and confusing because if it was based on his real life no one would do anything besides play it and wish fondly that he was there dad.
I know that this one is late. There are a lot of reasons, some of them I go over in the next podcast or so, but I should just let you know that there is no reason that this pod is nearly as tardy as it id. I am sorry about that.
We talk about Kirby in this one, take a break because Stark gets a new mouse, and then kind of just BS for awhile before turning the entire process off. You know, standard operating procedure for the cast for the most part. Also, if you want to leave a comment. That always seems to help us figure out what to do next. Or, if you are up to it rate us on iTunes, because at the moment we have one review of someone saying that we are morons and are terrible.
We have had this podcast in the bag for some time now, but it turns out that I wasn’t going to put it up until we got back on some kind of predictable schedule for recording. While that isn’t true I still think that it is something that we should just go with.
We talk about Dragon Quest and how it makes us feel happy just knowing that series is out there. Stark discusses like the series since it came out, while I am kind of a late comer to the party and talk about the possible influences that kept me from like the 8th one at all. There is the normal off topic conversation, even though we probably talk way more coherently than we should considering the amount that we drank that night.
Let us know what you think in the comments!
So this is a little late due to various and stupid real life things, but none the less the game of the year podcast with Stark and I is up and ready for a good solid listening too! What we end up selecting for a favorite game is not something that either of us really expected to be talking about, but when you have a conversation and want to come to some kind of agreement then I guess the one game both of us played for an insane amount of time is the winner. We also have a ton of other game based talk, but we mainly try to stay within the confines of the GoTY award.
We ended up having some weird audio problems, but it was kind of sorted out by the end of the pod. Hope you all enjoy.
